'Straya, cunt.
Much as I enjoy humor that depreciates, you ought to try self deprecating humor.

Just sayin'...

:lol:
Haha, trying to post from a four year old, cheap Samsung does me no favours, I can't even see the word that I'm typing half the time and smiley faces? Forgedaboudit.

Brent, serious question: how come there's never been an American political comedy ? Like Yes Prime Minister in the UK? Is it too sensitive to make fun of in the US?

I don't know, TBH. I don't think it is "sensitive" at all - our comedians and comedy shows rake the POTUS over the coals on a nightly basis. As to a recurring show? I think it may not fit our national viewing patterns & sense of humor, I guess.

Is there really any need? I mean, American political comedy is real life.....they voted in George W Bush twice FFS.

True. :rofl

Probably would have had massive protests from both parties though and massive pressure to pull the show.

Got stuck down South Bank earlier. The cops closed a few roads down there for the annual Invasion Day march. Was tempted to buy a few cartons of piss for a few of the elders...as a peace offering.
I've got a mate who lives in South Bank, just across the road from the Exhibition centre. He was telling me all about the Aboriginal Embassy they had in a park in the street behind his building. Said when the police finally moved in and evicted them that a few days later he was walking past and saw a small group of elders holding council around the remains of their campfire so he wandered over for a sticky beak.

He was there for a few minutes listening to them speaking about what they were going to do then one woman started off with stuff like "I respect what you're saying and we need to communicate clearly between us so we all know what's going on BUT WHO THE FARK ARE YOU?!?!?!" turning on my mate pointing at him :lol: She accused him of being an undercover cop (he kind of does look the type, big, cleancut bloke) and the others all started getting fired up and he had to explain he wasn't a cop and that he was on their side to get out of there safely :lol:

:lol: I was up there 2 or 3 years ago catching up with my mate and we went to see a band in the West End. Good night, heaps of beers, no dinner - the usual good night out :yep

Anyway, we had to walk past the Aboriginal Embassy park to get home, pissed as farts, I'm pretty sure we ran through the place causing a ruckus, can't remember for sure but we woke up the next day with no idea and no injuries so yeah, it was a good night :lol:

Thanks mate.:good

I've read that Australian celebrities are getting behind them but then saw older stories where Chan was using under age girls then threatening them when they got pinched.
Meanwhile,there's a 58 year old British grandmother who the Government has refused £38k for legal representation despite a panel of High Court judges advising that the money should be given.
I can't judge anyone but I think if you start going to these countries and trying to smuggle then you can't cry about the outcome.
I don't know of any really good docos on them.

I agree that they can't cry about the penalty. There's plenty of countries with lesser penalties to smuggle from yet they choose one where death's a likely outcome. Stupid. I don't agree though that smugglers should be subject to the death penalty but each country's got the right to make its own rules.

They've just announced that some Aussies will be part of the next round of executions so it looks like they haven't got long now.

I've really taken an interest in this mate and bought that journo's book on Sunday.
Rush's dad did ask for his son to be stopped from travelling or warned off any nonsense but the Feds at your end already had an informant giving them the meat of the operation.
Chan is definitely a right little bastard,and I read a ridiculous article at your end by a lawyer who I think was called Greg Barns.He accuses the AFP of sending him and the other one to their deaths but let's not forget,Chan denied any involvement at his original trial,yet now plays the wannabe pastor and jailhouse hero.
But he got a 15 year old girl jailed in HK and threatened her in a letter after she'd been pinched.
I don't believe for a second most of them (the big dyke had already been) really thought they were getting a free holiday to Bali as they seem to hint at but I do believe Chan was threatening them.
But did they really think (as they claim) they didn't know what they were getting into?
As for all these celebs getting involved,it is hypocrisy of the highest order.It's no secret that Indo-China countries have the harshest penalty for drugs.It would set a ridiculous precedent if those two were saved.
And judging by the comments underneath that idiotic article I mentioned,most of the lay people in Australia feel that they all made their beds.
One thing I will say though,if Chan had got my kid up to that then had the balls to threaten my family,that brother who has stuck by him would get a driver to the neck.

You're underrating U.S. political comedy...we also twice elected obama and Biden...the worst president and the stupidest vice-president in history.
