    Politics Fairfax: One of their main articles this morning is how Union Andy hand wrote 450 Christmas Cards . . . who cares, they would only be to union leeches and bludgers, not a productive recipient amongst them.

    Little Andy also featured in a female weekly magazine a few days ago. Aside from him looking like an extremely stiff robot when it comes to physical displays of affection, the magazine article told us he forgot his wife’s birthday this year, and she makes him iron his own shirts. LOL.

    That’s very mean; I’d iron the shirts if my husband was in that position. Why is it interesting that he handwrote all those cards ?

    @Kitty. So, if your husband was a Builder or a Supermarket Worker, you would not iron his shirts?

    Doesn’t seem fair or “Uniony” to me. LOL.

    Clearly, it’s a prestigious position indeed, to get crowned Leader of the Labour Party 🙂

    @ r2d2ic. You’re kiddin’ right ???

    • He’s probably right. There’s very good evidence that Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing used crisis actors, and Oz has a history of playing ball with the evil empire, eg blaming Martin Bryant for the Port Arthur shootings as part of the drive for public disarmament in Australia.

      Man Haron Monis aka Manteghi Boroujerdi aka Mohammad Hassan Manteghi fitted beautifully into the western propaganda narrative which portrayed Iran in a negative light. The accounts of security exercises in Sydney involving similar scenarios to what was reported is consistent with 9/11 NY, 7/7 London, Sandy Hook, and the Boston bombing.

      An then there was the recent debacle over Muslim terrorism which suffered abject failure in conjuring a need for more state security.

      Uh, no. It was made from fucking plastic.

    It would depend on the circs, Mike C. But a party leader works long hours-I have known several of them-and ironing their shirts is a small thing to do for someone in that position. One party leader whom we knew well requested that in what was laughingly called his holidays he didn’t do anything after 4.30pm…some holidays.

    Builders and supermarket wworkers don’t seem to wear ironed shirts, so it wouldn’t be an issue !

    @Kitty. My Aunty works at Countdown, and when we visited her last Christmas holidays, I saw her ironing her blue work shirts. And my brother-in-laws a builder, and he works long hours, which can be 7 days a week, but whenever he has to put on his “Sunday Best” clothes, he irons his own shirt 🙂
