Okay folks who’s got the popcorn

Our election is on Saturday.

All arrows point to a conservative victory, and the Ruddster, who was Prime MInister, then wasnt when they threw him out ,because they put Julia Gillard in , because Julia was better than Kevin, may be thrown out again.

By us this time.

With me so far?

Then Kevin’s mates, who threw him out before, decided to throw Julia Gillard out, as she was worse than Kevin, only then they brought Kevin Rudd back in, after they threw him out for not being good enough the first time round, but he didnt want to be thrown out, so he tried to throw her out, (and now she has been thrown out), but now he is good enough to be Prime Minister and they havent thrown him out yet but they may do that later, after the voters throw them all out….

…are you following me?

Before you ask, no, they arent bringing Julia back, because they threw her out a while ago to bring in Kevin, (then as you remember they put her in as his deputy and she became Prime Minister after they threw Kevin out, then threw her out again to put Kevin back in, and now she threw herself out of politics…) and now we are having an election to throw Kevin out as Prime Minister after he was put back in to throw Jula Gillard out..and after the voters throw him out, out his party may throw him out too…

You see, the Labor Party may throw him out again, only this time it wont be to bring Julia back in (did I tell you Julia isnt in politics now? Yes? Goodie.) and he will be replaced we hope by Tony Abbott, who was once thrown out as Liberal leader (and Liberal here isnt liberal where you are, we dont like socialists so we use a big L in Liberal as opposed to small l liberals like you have in the US) and then they held a party room election , and the leader of the party at that time, Malcolm Turnbull, was thrown out by the same people that want to throw Kevin out, and get us to throw Kevin out after they threw Julia out after they brought Kevin back in…

Hang on I’m almost finished…

..and no one wants to throw Tony Abbott out because he will be the new Prime Minister who got voters to throw Kevin out after the same guys that threw him out the first time decided they liked Julia better….Malcolm doesnt want to throw Tony Abbott out, which is good, because if he tried to do that, Tony Abbotts party will throw HIM out…

..anyway.

Theres an election on Saturday.

In Australia.

I get to vote. To throw Kevin out.

Who’s got the popcorn?

EDIT: Owing to popular demand, and in recognition of the Rottie’s need to maintain some semblance of sanity whilst reading this, beer is on the table as you come in. Stronger stuff to the side.

You lost me around “Our election”. Then again, I spent all day trying to build unioned SQL queries that will function properly from behind a ridiculously restrictive front-end that commits suicide anytime it sees a union. Most of that was finding out just how stupid the front-end is (hint: I ran out of facepalm after the second hour) and writing… Read more »

Brendan, Look at the bright side mate! You get to throw out your political idiots at just about any time for no reason or maybe for just reason while we here are stuck with Obungles the Red (line) for another 3+ years with ZERO chance of early removal so long as the ProgNaziLibtard scum control the senate. And yes, we… Read more »

Australia may well have a role to play, though I’ve got no info on that.

I could try and explain it for you…. :em05:

The hell with the popcorn, pass me the Excedrin. Trying to follow that gave me a headache. And I thought trying to figure out the logic of the idjits in charge where I work was painful. (hint: figure out the best, easiest most cost effective way to do something, then do the exact opposite)

Ah, Igor, I’ve yet to use a word processor that functions half as well as the one that ran on our ten megabyte drives …

Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked.
