I celebrated St Patrick’s Day this year with some traditional Irish potato spirit – poitin/poteen. I even coloured it green with the help of some limes.

Jeremy Clarkson is a hideously privileged prat. It isn’t like I hate him but he really is an arsehole. And I am deeply fucking disturbed by people who think he shouldn’t face repercussions for a violent assault just because he’s popular.
AIDzee and I explore how far you could take this theory (particularly with Rupert Murdoch).
People are worried about not reaching people who “liked” their page on Facebook now that the Zuckborg wants to charge you for it. I saw an article on this topic that made one ridiculously obvious point. AIDzee and I take it on.
Christopher Pyne is all kinds of fucked up. He’s one of this fucked-up government’s all star fuckups. While I could go on at great length about all the fuckups he’s committed in his education portfolio or all his fucked up antics in parliament, this post is all about the fucked up and downright freaky interview he did on Sky News this week.
The were the terrible faces, the awful giggles and the deeply creepy turns of phrase. When I saw the interview I thought someone should do a dance remix. Then I thought, why not me?
For a connoisseur of schadenfreude such as myself, watching Tony Abbott self-immolate is pure delight. He tries to play his tough guy act and ends up surprised when it blows up in his face. Most recently his target has been Gillian Triggs, President of the Human Rights Commission. she has come under sustained attack from Abbott and his lackeys for daring to publish a truthful report which heavily criticised both the past Labor and current Coalition government’s handling of asylum seeker children in detention.
Watching his nasty attacks having the opposite attack to what he intended is only half the fun. Now it looks like the Federal Police may be getting involved over allegations of bribery.
And then Malcolm Turnbull, the person who will sooner or later knock Abbott over as leader, fired a broadside that I’ll wager Abbott didn’t see coming, saying “debate about Gillian Triggs misses the main point … the main point is the children. Children in detention is something nobody wants”. I’d bet money Abbott is losing his mind behind closed doors because this is Turnbull straight up saying “Abbott is full of shit and I’m pretty much ready to replace him.”
The Trans Pacific Partnership has been in the news quite a bit lately and a lot of people have been asking if I’ll make a video about it. This is fair enough because the TPP is bloody horrible. A warning sign should be the way Tony Abbott has been prattling on about “more trade! It’s a good thing!”
If that cretin is pushing an idea it’s probably pretty bad.
But the point is I have been making videos about the TPP – at least six of them, stretching back to March 2012. Which brings me to another point – while I hate Abbott and the LNP, it’s unfair to blame it all on them. The previous Labor government were pushing it just as hard.
