Is it just me or is is the standard of comment (and spelling) in this blog going to crap? What the fuck have the above comments got to do with the post? Isn't there a soap box section available for these right wing wankers to vent their spleen?

The Grateful Mac said...

Hey Hillbilly Bob, how does the fact that I don't approve of how Pitt Jr. was parachuted into his dad's seat make me a right wing wanker ?

I'm just not very happy about the type of representation we get from our local State PM's and I don't care which party that they belong to.

They all just happen to be Labour..

And I can't recall any of your insightful comments on any subject.

Bazza said...

You are right grateful mac, you are just a wanker.

Bob from the Hills said...

No you wouldn't greatfool Mac, I'm just a troll, unlike yourself who contributes regularly on this blog, although from previous observations you are more of a lightweight than an insightful commenter yourself. Perhaps you could start by learning how to spell the name of the political party you obviously have major issues with. Anyway I'm off. Bye.

The Grateful Mac said...

Better a lightweight than a troll, pedantic Bobby. I don't have issues with the AUSTRALIAN LABOR PARTY per se, just with our local representatives.

Looking forward to some insightful comment from you on any subject, other then "learn how to spell".

And Bazza saying "you are just a wanker' only shows how limited your mental capacity really is.

A lot of people, many of them LABOR PARTY supporters, were not happy about the way Pitt Jr. was parachuted into his father's seat. Are they all right wing wankers ?

Maybe you guys are just another pair of useless LABOR PARTY yes men.

CJ Watson said...

Perhaps it's the Australian Labor Party who should have learnt to spell when they inauguarated the name?

This will all be corrected when the education revolution delivers computer games in all classrooms!?
