    NZ’s Pinko Princess, Cowering From Cannabis Candour? 

    One is naturally ill-disposed towards a woman like Ms. Ardern…


    A close shot of a woman's head as she speaks at a press conferenceoooooo

    ….the NZ PM who used the awful gun violence at Christchurch…

    Going To Church? Think About This! 

    “In the same week as the awful attack on the mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand… more than two hundred Christians were killed in Nigeria.

    ….as an excuse disproportionately to hammer legitimate Kiwi fire-arms owners, and also, ludicrously, donned a headscarf…

    Mogherini, Just Like Julie Bishop, Betrays Iran’s Women! 


    While she shakes the hands of these men, she thinks of the nine-year-old girls who are “legally” forced into marriage with the consent of the government?


    ….the badge of sexist sectarianism, reducing herself to the level of Mogherini and Bishop, two other women oblivious to Islamist persecution of any Muslim female, young or old, who takes a stand against oppressive head-scarfing.

    But at least those actions were fairly blatant declarations of where she stands on the ideological spectrum.

    Not so her contemptible cowardice on drugs.

    New Zealanders are, this month, due to vote in a national referendum on cannabis.

     (Funny how countries can get referenda on cannabis but not about multicult, or immigration, or capital punishment, yeah?)


    But Ardern is scared to tell the electorate which way she plans to vote!

    I’ve never heard of a talk-show host there named Duncan Garner, but on this issue at least, he was certainly on the ball when he called Ardern’s weaselly stance ‘a pathetic cop-out from the Prime Minister..

    …It was her Government who put this on the country’s agenda, it was her call and then she comes on this program and won’t tell us what her view is.

    “You’re a leader – have a view and grow some balls…”

    I wasn’t going to waste time on Ardern’s mealy-mouthing, but then saw that a Mr. Dogg, from the USA, had decided to stick his nose in.



    So if an American ‘rapper’ may intrude, telling Kiwis how to vote, why not a humble blogger?

    PS – I wrote all that ages ago, but did not rush to publish, giving Ardern time to reconsider her arrogant recalcitrance.

    Now, however, as the vote draws nigh, more and more New Zealanders are becoming indignant, challenging her spurious arguments, as with this Kiwi commentator, who is not in any way aligned with the causes I usually support.

    On cannabis she makes three arguments: It is a conscience issue for the Labour Party so it would be inappropriate for her to have a public view as leader, it would be inappropriate for her to have a public view given the Government is running the referendum, and that she is entitled to the privacy of her vote.

    None of these hold up to scrutiny. Abortion is also a conscience issue for the Labour Party but Ardern made her views on that well known.

    The Government is no longer running the referendum in any meaningful way, the Electoral Commission is. And as the most important politician in the country, she doesn’t really get to have political privacy.

    Her life is her own, but her political views should be public property.

    After all, we know what party she will be voting for.

    A Powerful Antidote To Islamophobia? 

    Great news from Iraq, that a court has handed down a death sentence for a Russian who was part of the ISIS rape-gang.


    That judges in a Muslim country can show such a superior grasp of how to handle jihadist vermin is of course a powerful antidote to Islamophobia!



    Iraq’s retention of capital punishment puts European countries  – and Canada and Australia – to shame.

    Heck, in Canada, terrorists can even hope for hand-outs from the public purse!

    But the other interesting aspect is the absence of any mention of Russian intercession on the sentenced swine’s behalf.

    • Can any of us picture Putin sending in consular staff to console the savage, much less protest against the entirely just and proper penalty imposed?

    • Again, what a contrast with Western Europe’s effete attitudes, with Merkel’s minions under orders to visit and comfort vermin like those so-called ‘German’ slags we reported on…

    Merkel’s readiness to help those bitches is matched by Julie Bishop’s unappetising u-turn.

    She apparently authorised Australian help to a foul sectarian traitor named Neil Prakash, who is currently residing in a Turkish top security prison, captured in the course of his service to the bloodthirsty ISIS caliphate .

    Because he had been previously listed as a proscribed person, meaning anyone who assisted him was guilty of a crime!



    If Turnbull had any cojones, he’d have over-ruled his flunkey and told the Turks to wring the b-stard’s neck!


    If Western nations lack the will to put satanic swine to death, they should at least declare that they are washing their hands of all those rabid renegades who knowingly went off to ISIS-Land, and invite whoever catches them to kill them.

      Nothing to disagree with in what you write here, Ross,
      How Iraqis punish their own traitors is up to them, but I hope they do us all a favor and execute any captured ISIS ‘fighters’ who went there from Western countries.
      Those ‘foreign fighters’ are traitors to Australia, like the one you name, and to Britain, Canada or any other country they are citizens of.
      Hang everyone of them.

      Why should we take these ISIS rats back?
      They left our country which gave them free education and every chance to make good and when they chose to join our enemies, they used our country’s passports to travel to their ‘caliphate.’ So they have no argument against the charge of treason.
      They deserve the death penalty, not ‘consular assistance.’

    Mogherini, Just Like Julie Bishop, Betrays Iran’s Women! 

    Communists of course are liars, all that prattle about workers’ rights and ‘the people,’ when they stomp workers and impose a new ruling class wherever they get the chance.

    But they are usually quite good at lying.



    It’s essential for their chances of success.

    So given the Euro-Commissars’ pretend-concern for “women’s rights,” it was surprising to see Federica Mogherini, the Italian communist currently rejoicing in the title of ‘European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs…’


    While she shakes the hands of these men, she thinks of the nine-year-old girls who are “legally” forced into marriage with the consent of the government?


    ….exposing her duplicity by publicly crawling to the sexist bigots who run Iran, it’s worthy of mention.

    So much for the dignity of women!

    Red Fed went to great trouble to remove evidence of her enthusiasm for Arab terrorism around the time she got her promotion to Euroglory.

    She excised this infamous picture of herself smiling in the company of Yasser Arafat, a figure notorious for his terrorist activities from her social media.



    However, the top photo, of her miserable headscarf kow-tow, was not only unconcealed but comes to us courtesy of the European Union – originally.

    However, the link below that Tehran photo belongs to the Gatestone Institute, and although it takes you to an article in German, Gatestone has a neat translation system, and you can refresh your knowledge of just how evil the Islamist regime in Iran is…



    … especially in its iniquitous maltreatment of women. Check out this video link!

    Iran: Young woman apprehended in Tehran for not covering her hair



    None of the Euro-Commissars, who pretend to care about women’s rights, has yet, so far as we can see, ever called for Mogherini’s resignation, nor even suggested she should apologise and give an undertaking never again to don the shariah scarf.



    But Red Fed is not unique. We saw those immensely ‘liberated’ and ‘feminist’ Swedes grovelling to shariah too, remember?


      Iran – Contemptible Swedish Cows Crawl To Shariah Sexists 


    And before any readers in the English-speaking world start mocking the appeasement mentality of the afore-mentioned weasel-women…


    Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop holds a press conference with her Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif following a meeting in Tehran on April 18, 2015.


    Look at that Aussie bint Bishop!


    If these women, any of them, had worn a scarf in order to visit a mosque, nobody would raise an eye-brow.

    Respect for somebody else’s place of worship means following its rules, as I did when I took off my shoes to visit the magnificent mosque in Cairo years ago.

    But outside mosques? On the streets? In public buildings, as were those Western rat-bags in the photos?

    Craven collaboration, compliance with the primitives’shariah subjugation into which Iranian women are brutally coerced every day of their lives?

    Migrant Muslim Ban? How to Allay ‘Islamophobia!’ 

    I read a week or two ago that Slovakia, a small country located in the very heart of Europe, is reportedly prepared to accept 200 ‘migrants,’ but only Christians. Since then, Finns have expressed similar noises.

    Today, Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was almost instantly subjected to whines about ‘discrimination’ after she dclared ‘a focus on assisting those persecuted ethnic and religious minorities who will have no home to return to when the conflict is over. 

    “So that includes Maronites, it includes Yazidis, there are Druze.” 

    Discrimination in favour of those most at risk is just plain good sense, and common decency. Christians and Yazidis have been evilly tormented by the Islamist rape-gang ISIS and deserve our sympathy.



    • But we need to be forthright on the issue of ‘Islamophobia,’ a bogus word conjured up by the likes of CAIR, whose character we should all understand by now.

    Let’s listen to the Slovaks.

    Bratislava officials claim Muslim refugees wouldn’t feel at home because the country has such a tiny Islamic population. Daily Mail Online.

    I frankly find it unlikely that a lack of suitable places of worship is the real reason behind this policy. Muslims, after all, can and do pray anywhere.

    Considerate Muslims, like my former colleague in London, find unobtrusive locations, like a small room in the office complex, whilst less considerate ones obstruct the public footway en masse, even highways, thus contributing to ‘Islamophobia.’. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2011/08/04/jakarta-top-cop-slams-traff-islamic-jams/


    • slovakia
    • ======================
    • So I’d say this attitude on the part of the Slovaks is actually down to the failure of most clerics in Europe to do what I have often suggested as the best antidote to anti-Islamic feeling, namely use their pulpits to denounce several unacceptable attitudes rightly or wrongly imputed to Muslims.
    • birminghamosque mosque in England

    First, at every Friday prayer session, all good clerics should begin their sermon with a clear-cut assertion that Muslims in the UK (or any country) may not elevate any imagined empathy with Muslims abroad either above, or on a par with, loyalty to Queen and Country.

    • Any such supranational allegiance is an affront and if held, should be cause for detention pending deportation.
    • ================
    • .

    Secondly, the sermons should decree that, under no circumstances, should anyone in their audience think, never mind act, violently towards ‘apostates’ or ‘blasphemers.’


    People in those categories are not bad. They simply hold different views about how to worship or not worship. Some ‘blasphemers’ may be rude, but in those cases, in a civilised country, civilised people do not behave like the rabid morons in the above photo. They ignore what might offend, or write a critical letter to their favourite newspaper.


    Third, again at least once a week, it should be explained that polygamy is for primitives. Civilised people should not, and, where it’s illegal, may not, engage in multi-spouse relationships.


    polygamy a backward polygamous brute


    Again, anyone who feels strongly, once a citizen, may propose to change the law, but of course only on the basis of sex equality, any reform conferring the right to more than one legal bed-mate to both men and women. 


    Thirdly, on the same theme, responsible clerics should powerfully aver that men and women are not to be iniquitously treated. Already, in the UK, and elsewhere, we have heard rational Muslim input on this. 

    ‘An Archaic Tribal Rag’ – Wise UK Muslim Imam Says ‘Ban the Burqa!’ 

    It’s on the BBC! Bag-Head Bans Do Not Infringe Religious Liberty! 

    Fiery Islamists – ‘Head-Scarves NOT a Big Issue!’ 

    If women are told to shroud their heads, men also should be instructed accordingly!


    Clerics should moreover speak out against any demand by fanatics to be above the law, and this is a topical matter, given what I read in the UK media last week, about certain people saying they should be excluded from the attentions of sniffer dogs.

    POLICE sniffer dogs trained to spot terrorists at railway stations may no longer come into contact with Muslim passengers – after complaints that it is against the suspects’ religion.

    Sniffer dogs could be banned
    A report for the Transport Department has raised the prospect that the animals should only touch passengers’ luggage because it is considered “more acceptable.”   http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/50071/Sniffer-dogs-offend-Muslims

    There’s no excuse for permitting the infantile notion of ‘cultural sensitivity’ to trump public safety.


    I honestly believe regular repetition of all the above in every house of worship (Muslim or otherwise ) would reassure host nations immensely.

    Most, if not all, Western countries practise religious liberty. Decent Muslims can practise their religion happily, and fit in well, like these Ahmadiyah in the UK.

      You cannot be faulted in your list of faults that need to be corrected by these people but do you honestly think any sermons along the lines you suggest would be done without a very visible tongue in cheek, “nudge-nudge, wink-wink, just fulfilling kafir commands, you know what the real message is?”

      All the evidence we have seen and heard in Australia, from the top ‘establishment’ Islamic authorities down to the lowest Lakemba levels of jihadism, has shown us that they automatically object to Australia fighting against any Muslim country/army/organisation.
      They DO put their ‘sectarian allegiance,’ as you correctly describe it, before loyalty to the country they claim to be part of.

      I’m sure there are honourable Muslims in Australia whose first duty is to Australia, but they don’t seem to rise high in the groups that speak for their communitiy.

    Wrong, Retno – Crimmigrants’ Intended Targets Have NO Duty Of ‘Cooperation!’ 

    Ms Marsudi replied that it was “not fair” to make the problem an Indonesian one.


    • retno-marsudi-menlu-perempuan-pertama-indonesia
    • “The cooperation should come from country of origin and country of transit and country of destination,” she said.

    And it sounds like she’s blaming Oz for declining to be lumbered with more free-loaders!     http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-22/dutton-defends-government-decision-over-rohingya-refugees/

    Retno Marsudi may be the first female Foreign Minister Indonesia has ever had, but she’s not the first holder of that job to fall into drastic error.

    We spent a lot of time criticising her predecessor, Marty ‘Mealy-Mouth’ Natalegawa, mostly for his inability to talk straight about the Cikeusik Pogrom ‘trial…’

    …in hindsight, whether the sense of justice is fully served, I don’t know…  https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/09/03/the-moderate-view-reporting-sectarian-violence-to-un-is-white-collar-crime/     

    …and so far Bu Retno hasn’t said anything quite as outrageous as those shocking words about that shocking mockery of justice.


    But nevertheless…why has she made such a deliberately and needlessly provocative statement?

     Why on earth should the crimmigrants’ target nations be dragged into the equation? Australia never invited these wretches, nor indicated in any way that they’d be given a green light to get their greedy snouts into Aussie tax-payers’ pockets!




    Country-shopping is NOT a ‘human right’ listed even in the European Court’s bizarre interpretations of that hazy concept.

    If some dead-beat in some dire dump decides all by himself that bludgers can screw more benefits out of Aussie (or Canadian, or UK, or US) tax-payers than are likely obtainable here in Indonesia, or Malaysia, or indeed anywhere else…



    The ‘destination’ of the waster wannabes is simply their personal plunder plan, just like a house picked by ‘home invader’ robbers. That pick in no way obligates any innocent family to oblige nasty looters who erupt uninvited to lay waste a happy home.

    If Indonesia decides to bow to UN diktats and bring ashore hundreds or thousands of undesirable aliens, Indonesia has to live with the consequences.

    I suppose the IslamoNazis will rush to take their share into their homes.


    fpi kill busddhist


    The FPI claim to have thousands of members, so their individual readiness to open their personal doors should soak up most of the Rohingya currently detained in camps in Aceh.

    Indeed, numerous posters I saw last week, on my bus travels around Jakarta, urging Indonesians to ‘help’ Rohingya were very clearly sectarian in their appeal, like this one I found via Google today.

    • NB  Note carefully -NOT  ‘Help Rohingya‘ but ‘Help Rohingya Muslims.’ 

    If the new batch of Rohingya are anything like those we featured two years ago…

    …they’ll get on famously with the blood-thirsty FPI white-shirts in our photo, openly advertising their wish to murder people they’ve never met, purely on grounds of how those people worship God. 

    But are these people even Rohingya?


    Obviously, few ‘asylum’ seekers in this part of the world, as on the Mediterranean, are genuinely seeking ‘asylum.’ They are, more often than not, just economic migrants, snouts looking for a trough.

    And the Oz media report fresh confirmation of this enduring truth, Julie Bishop quoting Ibu Retno’s own colleagues, thus –

    “They (Indonesia) believe there are about 7,000 people at sea [and] they think about 30 to 40 per cent are Rohingya, the rest are Bangladeshi,” Ms Bishop said.

    “They are not, in Indonesia’s words, asylum seekers, they are not refugees — they are illegal labourers. They’ve been promised or are seeking jobs in Malaysia.

    “They said the Rohingya have gone to Bangladesh and have mixed up with the Bangladeshis who are coming to Malaysia in particular for jobs.”

    Hasan Kleib


    Ms Bishop said Indonesia’s director-general of multilateral affairs, Hasan Kleib, told her one boat carrying 600 people had 400 Bangladeshis aboard.  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-05-23/bishop-says-most-of-7000-stranded-people-are-labourers/6491836

    Now when even the ABC feels a duty to record this reality, you know the case for deportation of many of these moochers must be overwhelmingly strong.

    An unlikely event, but entirely reasonable, given Julie Bishop’s disgusting appeasement of the savages who misrule Iran.


    Civilised countries, their elected leaders, should set examples, not act the fool in order to kow-tow to the cruel ayatollahs!

    Small wonder a chorus of disapproval has swollen to a crescendo of condemnation.

    Iranian political journalist Masih Alinejad  –  “you were not brave enough to challenge the compulsory hijab rules yet. We hope you will soon. You may say you were respecting Iran’s culture but compulsory hijab is not part of our culture…” 

     Australian-Iranian woman Moji Joon  – “quite disappointed Ms Bishop did not use her political position, to make a stance for her fellow females.”

    Jeanie Mac – “The moral support this would have given the women in Iran who are protesting the wearing of compulsory hijab could have been huge. Instead it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth that she cares so little for women’s liberation and human rights.”


    Even Obama’s wife didn’t lower herself to this degrading level when she visited the Saudi cess-pool.

    Bint Bishop deserves contempt for donning the scarf of subjugation.

    Bishop’s Boobs? Greer Trivialises Drug-Crim Executions! 

    I’ve never had much time for Germaine Greer, a sorry left-over from the bra-burning Sixties, but her performance on Oz tv this week was more pathetic than usual.

    • juliebish
    • No matter what your view on the Bali drug-crims, it was surely puerile for Greer to trivialise the situation by asking of Foreign Minister Julie Bishop if she’d bare her boobs as the price of freezing Indonesia’s firing squad plans.

    It’s hardly most people’s idea of a fit subject for humour! 

    The subject matter was raised by an audience member who brought up the ‘Free the nipple’ social media campaign.



    It aims to overcome the taboo around exposing women’s nipples in film, television and photographs. https://au.news.yahoo.com/a/26580977/awkward-moment-bishop-asked-if-she-would-go-topless-to-save-bali-nine-duo/

    “Millions of Australians Will Not Be Upset If Bali Executions Go Ahead!” 

    Actually, what Tony Abbott said was “Millions of Australians are feeling very, very upset about what may soon happen to two Australians in Indonesia,” which appears to be a disgraceful misrepresentation of public opinion.

    This should come as no surprise to anyone who knows that Australians are normal sensible people, quite unlike the pathetic lefty shrills who dominate the media.

    • juliebish

    Abbott’s talking rot, but so’s his Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop.

    “Australians will make their own decisions as to whether they want to travel to a country that does have the death penalty.”

    But they’ve been coming here, to Bali, for years, in their millions, and Indonesia has had the death penalty for years, so more hogwash from Canberra, it seems.

    Even her Labor opposite number, Tanya Plibersek, has a bit more sense.

    “I’m really not sure that boycotting Bali is going to make much of a difference to the attitude in Jakarta.”

    The ‘boycott’ won’t happen. Nor should it. It’s Indonesia’s business, and now they have some grasp of what real Australia thinks, they have even less reason to pay heed to sticky-beak interference.

      You’ve been speaking up for all the normal Australians who have no time for the drug-traders.
      I think Abbott’s acting the chump on this and Bishop’s embarassing, as if we all make our holiday plans depending on what countries do to criminals.

      Good to know Australians agree with us. Thank you.

      You shouldn’t call them lefty or pinko. All they are is snobs. These snobs call us bogans because we work for a living and don’t go to the opera or poetry readings.
      But they are happy to take our taxes and spend them on their pet projects like Asylum seekers.
      Our opinions don’t count, just look at the lies they have spread all over about what we think of those drug pedlars in Bali.
      Shoot them, hang them, electrocute them, who cares. Not the majority of Australians. Abbott has let us down.

      My friend telphoned me to read this and it is so good that Australia feels same like we do.
      So many news here telling us Australia is on the side of the drug convict but now I know that news is all big lies.
      All my friends and families are very happy with what you say so we say thanks very much.
      Sorry, I hurry this and forget much from my English.

      We not only see no reason why Indonesia shouldn’t shoot drug smugglers if that’s Indonesian law, we also can’t get why Australia is so soft with criminals.
      My personal belief is that the wrong people pull the media levers here, and have cornered even Tony Abbott, who is probably still conservative but too much of the time scared to show it, into thinking he would lose public support if he did things he and the public really want done.
      We saw him back down on the free speech law reform, and it will be interesting to see if he has the nerve to press ahead with banning Hizbut Tahrir.
      I see you have suggested he should resort to referendums on some controversial questions, The opinion poll, which not even the ABC has managed to distort so far, makes me think you are on the right track.

      These people cheering on your bloodlust are as bad as you in their disregard for facts. Australia is not governed by opinion polls and if opinion polls include inverted snobs like James and sad bigots like your precious ‘uncle oz,’ then thank god for that.
      And there will be no referendum.
      We elect MPs to decide what’s best and that’s a basic principle of Australian democracy.

        I am insulted by this, Pak Kenneth.
        I am not bad.
        I read the facts. The poll is a fact.
        I cheer for Pak Ross because he cheers for us, the Indonesia people, because we cheer for our Presiden.
        Who cheers for your Prime Minister? Not most of his Australia people. They agree with us Indonesia people.
        Let the sentence be carried on. It is the risk they understood when they did their drug crime.

        I see you are not short of insults, Mr. Tayor. But short on argument, except to tell us we have to leave it to the politicians who know what’s best.
        That’ll be the day.
        Australians know how a referendum works. We had them before, and can have them again,,

      If most of the voters polled say yes to the executions, it happens that i dont. But I dont think Abbott should have shot his mouth off.


    • Ati 10:45 on February 16, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      I think you Mr Tayor is very wrong. We have the law against drug here and our goverment is doing what we want.
      But Mr Tayor your govement is not doing what Australia people want.


    • Arthur 12:18 on February 16, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      I cant see where there is bloodlust, Kenneth. I am not even sure Ross is in favor of the death penalty for these two,
      I dont think they should be executed, but terrorists, and people who rape and murder kids, for two categories, should be.

      I think the point he was making here is that Abbott has badly let Australians down, and is misrepresenting the majority view.
      Most people I know couldnt care less if they shoot the pair of drug-smugglers, and if they do have a strong view, it is about fifty-fifty.
      That poll makes Abbott look undemocratic.

      And what will you do when they die? Throw a party?


    • Expatrotic 15:41 on February 16, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Well said, Kenneth.
      It’s significant that Ross uses the word ‘liberal’ as a insult. He always sinks to the redneck/bogan, populist level. It’s his nature to take the low road and he’ll not change.
      Britain and Canada and Australia have parliaments precisely because they know that representative democracy is a strong safeguard against rabble-rousing.
      Any referendum system would be prone to death penalties voted back, refugees deported and marriage equality repealed.

      So Kenneth, if you do not think us ‘rabble’ should have a vote in referendums, why let us vote at all? Why not have a country run by the elite?
      Your kind of elite won’t claim Divine Right. but there’s no other difference between the old ideas of aristocracy and what you are in favour of, treating people as too stupid to know what’s good for them.

      Australia has a long tradition of referendums, and plebiscites, which are not the same thing. Some you win, some you lose.
      Nothing new in the idea. Why are you getting so excited?

      I just came across this after i saw the other report in the news about the Indonesian students’ unanimous support for Jokowi on this.
      I think Australians are much more divided. Not only on this case but on the death penalty.
      And since capital punishment is not a party political issue, it should be put to referendum.
      Our minds are just as capable of decision and persuasion as the flap-jaws in Canberra.

      My God, but this is sickening to read.
      Those poor men may be shot dead tomorrow and you and your commentariat, most of them, are content to let it happen?
      Indonesians will not be getting any of my tourist dollars ever again.
      They can rip you off instead, if you are stupid enough to stay there.


    • anthony 11:42 on March 4, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      After reading all of the comments so far, I don’t think any of them are going to win me over.
      Drug crimes are bad, but not as bad as murder and terrorism.
      Indonesia doesn’t execute many of the criminals guilty of those crimes. If they did, many Australians would nod and move on, but because there is no consistency, many Australians feel it’s unfair.
      The people criticising you and your supporters don’t argue logically, much of the time, just show anger and more than a touch of condescension.

      And after all, you and your blog, and all the other bloggers, will not make any difference to the outcome.
      But if it lets off steam, rave on, who cares?


    • JazPen 09:10 on March 5, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Agree with you, Anthony.
      Many blogs are fun to read but who is going to get worked up about them.
      Ross enjoys winding up his ‘pinkos.’
