    Thankfully it’s only in the state of Victoria. Sensible Australians look at Victoria the same way you guys look at Massachusetts.

    Hey, they had that same law when KINGS and QUEENS ruled.

    But the fine was beheading so I guess we can say they are enlightened.

    ‘1984’ is now to be republished as ‘2014’ with a few chapters added.

    I’m inclined to email this smarmy, chicken sh1t assh0le and tell him what I think of politicians who get away with crap like this. But I’ll wait to see if the law is passed before I do.

    I suspect that the second such a stupid bit of legislation passes, insulting this particular minister will soon become Australia’s national sport.

    The comments it and the its intended benefactor are drawing even in parliament are just outstanding.

    Australian politicians are obviously a bunch of stupid fucking sons of bitches if they can’t take an insult. What morons– conceited morons, who couldn’t reason their way out of a wet paper bag– crack-heads, the sons of crack-head mothers and meth-head fathers.

    Lyle,

    Any dumber and they could be Vice Presidents here!

    If I ever get around to reviving my blog, I just might make it policy to add a daily post insulting ALL politicians.

    It seems that the ‘self-esteem not self-respect’ movement has finally won.

  12. Kristopher Says:

    Lyle: This was one state minister who is trying to get this special little law passed for himself.

    He is getting called out for it.

    This should all prove very amusing … poppy-cutting ( verbally cutting down people who think they are better than others ) is the national sport there.
