We fucked it hard. Here's hoping to hundreds of thousands of bank accounts being drained causing havoc on the economy because of the dumb ass law. Honestly fuck Labor and Liberal. Also Penny, I have lost all respect I had in you.

Good, fuck George Pell.

Also, before anyone asks. There's a court-enforced gag order to prevent the perception of media influence on the ruling. Which is probably why you're going to need a VPN.

Pell’s been found guilty of child sex abuse and the news is being blocked in Australia because reasons?
Its being blocked because the prosecution wanted a gag order so it wouldn't seem media influenced. As far as I know, there's more trials to go through, pretty reasonable if the prosecution didn't want Pell to yell "WITCH HUNT WITCH HUNT" and possibly get away with it.

Yeah the church became irrelevant to me a long time ago. Cannot find out the full details because of the gag order but glad he's been found guilty.

Is there any chance of inaccuracy or rumour mongering in regarding the Pell case? I’m unfamiliar with any of the organisations that have reported on this and don’t know how trustworthy they are

Surplus is so unneccessary if it comes at the cost of vital services. Fuck this shitty government and Chris Bowen is also partly responsible for egging 'em on. Seriously, the cuts are to a laundry list of most important services, its fucked

The greatest thing about that shitshow of a budget is how much they're fucking with regional Australia.

Nationals might want to something about their relationship with the Liberal Party lmao.

I find it hilarious that even bank investors are asking for the banks to do more about climate change. Not to mention the state liberal governments. Meanwhile the Federal government still won’t even utter the words climate change. How long can they totally ignore this issue? The whole cheap, reliable power schtick that they’ve been running with clearly isn’t working. A lot of people must be getting paid good money behind the scenes to keep this charade going.

somehow im not shocked that christensen is a pedophile sex tourist
Excuse me, the man is clearly a hebephile and therefore doing a perfectly legal thing.

In all seriousness, no one should be shocked. Christensen is the model demographic (portly white man with regressive views towards everything) for seedy South East Asia sex tourism and mail order brides.

Using props and not addressing the speaker. My pearls are being thoroughly clutched.

How can Downer not know of Father Bob?

Also his current third and sixth most recent tweets are transphobic.

That’s a ratio to end all ratios. Downer is so hated that even random conservative sycophants can’t be bothered giving him random likes.
Which is why it’s ironic that his name will go down in history as the man who kicked off the Trump-Russia investigation.

It’d be like if Gavrilo Princip were an offputting twitchy weirdo who the other Serbian nationalist revolutionaries avoided eye contact with and refused to sit near during meals. History won’t record that.
