    A silly bitch in The Listener is spouting 70s style male-bashing sexism; I can’t think why they have given her the opportunity to rehash this tired old stuff. Men are mass killing women; one a week in Australia. Yes, that is dreadful, but the number of men murdered is many times that, a fact not mentioned.

    Her anti-men sexism is at least as bad as any anti-women sexism as she lumps men together with a few condescending exceptions.

  3. Fairly predictable, but geez, why can’t he give it up?

    It may be a waste of effort anyway unless Slater recovers enough to participate, presuminng his incapacitation is genuine.

    Craig can’t be expecting to recover expenses – even if he gets an award of money on appeal that doesn’t mean he will get anything.

      Colin blew millions on his conservative party.
      He has blown his reputation with gooey love poems to a staff member..
      He is now trying to blow his remaining money on futile court proceedings.
      We really dodged a bullet there imagination such a knob in Parliament.
      Once their was many vocal supporters infesting political blogs
      I know who supported him on KB who was the suckers on here? Can someone name and shame them please.

        Yeah, sure. I was one who wanted Colin in parliament. If fact, I was the only one on this blog if I remember correctly. I mean, we have the Greens..why not Colin?

        In future, just call me out. I won’t run away.

        The reason I supported Colin was because his party had some very good policies in my opinion. That Colin marched to his own tune was obvious from the get go. I just wish he’d kept marching. That would have kept his hands busy.

        I don’t think Colin will ever run out of money.

          Corky was a conservative supporter .
          Why does that not surprise me ?
          I had already guessed you would support suck a gibbering wacko as Colin Craig. Did you once support Graham Capill as well?

            ”Corky was a conservative supporter .”

            I don’t vote..remember, Einstein?

            ”Why does that not surprise me ?”

            Who knows..what goes on in your weird mind is unknowable.

            ”I had already guessed you would support suck a gibbering wacko as Colin Craig.”

            He can’t be that bad..he has way more money than you. He doesn’t need to catch a bus.

            ”Did you once support Graham Capill as well?”

            No..I never liked the dudes haircut.

            Take your lumps, now crawl back under your rock.

              Who said anything about voting son?
              In your own words above “The reason I supported Colin”

              If you can be arsed, I cant. there are comments from me pointing out Colin Craig was a wacko destined to be exposed as a hypocrite on KB going back to his first emergence .
              You would have been an idiot not to have seen his inevitable downfall .

              As to catch a bus .
              I vaguely remember doing so sometime around 1980.

      He will have to get in line I imagine, sick notes as a last line of defence against Blomfield taking everything he can’t hide and the Sellman case hurtling down the highway at him as well.
