    John’s Lyin’.

  2. Not Trampis says:

    Just how is albo kissing arse. Surely you cannot accuse Trudeau of that.

  3. Pommy Al says:

    The consequences will be a sore arse.
    Meanwhile ensuring Australians far and wide suffer severe piles.

  4. Twostix says:

    Trudeau literally shit himself when Xi gave him a dressing down for leaking and lying about their conversations.

  5. C.L. says:

    The weirdness in this country about China is off the charts.
    Just about every day, The Australian runs a screamer about the Growing Fwet of China and the absolute importance of nuclear submarines! and other super-dooper! weapons that we have no chance of acquiring before 2050-60.

    Greg Sheridan had a piece a few days ago entitled “The time to start preparing for war with China is now.” Here’s a snippet:

    The only nation that Australian submarines could possibly be relevant to, adversarially, is China. The world is rightly transfixed by Russia’s monstrous ­aggression in Ukraine, but there is only one peer competitor for the US – China.

    Only one peer competitor? America just got beaten up by the Taliban.

    On the other hand…

    Well done, Albo, for re-opening this important trading relationship!

    So much for all the Churchill cosplaying. I don’t recall reading about Churchill re-building economic ties with Berlin in 1942.

  6. Tel says:

    Pretty difficult to make Albo look smart, but standing him next to Trudeau does help a little.

  7. Buccaneer says:

    So does standing him next to Chris Bowen…

  8. Not Trampis says:

    have to laugh when Tel makes a comment. He still has no idea of what companies have to do when making announcements to the ASX. Not the smartest bloke around.

    Trudeau stood up to XI pretty well. Perhaps some people need tp go to specsavers.
    they left Afghanistan poorly but beaten up?? I agree it was stupid to adopt any sort of Trump plan but they did.

    As for war with China Xi is not as stupid as Trump and it won’t happen.

    you only begin a war if you can win.
    something CL’s favourite war criminal did not think through

  9. Buccaneer says:

    Biden owns the whole debacle, he said so himself.

    When Mr Biden entered the White House in January, he was keenly aware of the looming deadline and had time to meet it if he had chosen to do so.

    He began a review of the February 2020 agreement shortly after taking office, and has been consulting at length with his defence and military advisers as well as allies.

    In recent weeks, it became increasingly clear that he was leaning toward defying the deadline.

    “It’s going to be hard to meet the May 1 deadline,” Mr Biden said in late March.

    “Just in terms of tactical reasons, it’s hard to get those troops out.

    “And if we leave, we’re going to do so in a safe and orderly way.”

    Non Mentis

    Trudeau stood up to XI pretty well.

    ROFLMAO! About as reliable as your advice on intermittent electricity generation.

  11. Lee says:

    Trudeau stood up to XI pretty well.

    Looked red-faced and grovelling to everyone else.

  12. Buccaneer says:

    Exemplified by the Trampis contributions here, the left has basically stopped bothering to even hide their egregious gaslighting, why bother when you know the apparatus of main stream media will cover for you as a matter of course. The next phase of this is starting with the not so subtle disciplining of main stream media supporters who mistakenly think that we still live in a democracy rather than an extreme left ideocracy that constantly frames ideological enemies of their agenda as enemies of the state.

  13. Entropy says:

    As I recall, I cancelled my The Australian subscription at one point over a particularly stupid article penned by John Lyons, I think it was some sort of the usual anti Israel drivel.
    The Sub was already under threat from the constant one topic tirade from Turnbull Booster and Abbott hater the Bittered Savv. But Lyins was the last straw.

  14. Entropy says:

    Oops, typo.

  15. Rockdoctor says:

    In Asia atm. Have not seen Albo’s face on the TV since I departed Melbourne. In fact the only thing I have seen on Australia is about the police shootings and that was breif. I did also see an Australian flag flying among others at Nong Nooch Gardens Sattahip yesterday. Few Aussie themed bars round where we are staying with friends at Banglamung. That pretty well much it.

    As normal the ALP has tickets on themselves and so do a few journalists. So does Trudeau but that has been evident for some time.

    Not wanting to denigrate Australia but want to be realistic about our pull which is no different to any multitude of other middle level players on world stage. Honestly we are seen rightly or wrongly as a US “deputy”. Especially by BRIC nations.
