    One has to truly wonder why this bloke was harassed and charged by Morrison’s henchmen for speaking his mind when Parliament is full of even worse abuse on a daily basis.

      Why, because the guy changed, in not merely calling the Nasty Muppet a Muppet, but an f’ing Muppet .. in front of the Nasty Muppet’s daughter, and not once, but several times.

      That’s why there are lines we shouldn’t cross Russell, and being abusive to people we may detest, in front of family members is one of them if we wish to have a functioning community.

        Is that same sort of abuse somehow excusable in Parliament under “Parliamentary Privilege”, Peter? There have been quite a few examples recently. You don’t have to swear, but you may as well have done with the disgraceful comments made.

        Then there is the actual swearing at persons of the public by politicians when they think they can get away with it. Have any of them and been similarly charged?

        Very hypocritical of Morrison et al.

        But it’s just another notch in the belt of right-wing political oppression and subjugation of the population. The gas is slowly turned up as the frog sits in the pot of water.

    Russell and John Martinkus, two clowns each knocking their heads together with stupid comments!

    PM Morrison is by far the best PM in decades and deserves the respect of the masses. He is on the ball continually. Of course we understand that those heavily drug addicted have no idea what they are doing, but that is not an excuse as potentially they can be dangerous people.

    The police response was probably too easy, but as we live in a democracy I would strongly suggest the ADF watch this individual very closely. After all, he threatened the leader of the nation, so where could this lead to?

      You need to get a grip on reality, Robin. Either that or it is further evidence that as some of us get older we revert to a child mentality. Don’t mix your Codeine with the Temazepan Robin, it really isn’t good for you.

      Morrison couldn’t lead a conga line.

    Morrison did call his own government “a Muppet show.”

      Because it is.

      It’s about the only thing Morrison has got right since white-anting his way to be PM.
