God, I’m bothered by god-botherers!

The Bug’s ranter-in-residence is laid low with a virus. From his sickbed, he shouted a few, short-of-breath snippets to his startled secretary.

A bucket of putrid pigs’ swill
Has more Christianity in it
Than Scott Morrison has ever had
Or ever fucking will.

While I applaud the combined efforts by metropolitan media daily rival companies to highlight on their front pages today the real threats to media freedoms and whistleblowers in this country, I’m wondering what commercial radio stations did doing their rip-and-read news breaks? Two minutes of silence?

Is everyone else really enjoying life in the post-Cheika world? And what bliss is it, eh, to not have to listen about the Wannabees’ World Cup prospects for, say, another two-and-a-half years. And what about that final scoreline of 40-16 to England. Imagine how much bigger the margin would have been if Australia had “enjoyed” an even greater share of possession.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve watched an episode of Four Corner. You?

I hope that surfer attacked off Bribery Island the other day is recovering well. Thanks for the story, Channel 9 Sydney news. You never fail to cheer me up.

Didn’t mean to – I still can’t bring myself to resume watching Insiders or check Newspoll – but I accidentally caught our beloved Prime Minister’s overnight approval ratings from @ghostwhovotes. Just a question? If Morrison’s approval dips into negative territory – and it hasn’t got far to go – will Leigh Sales have him on 7.30 and hammer him relentlessly on why he’s not popular and suggesting he should give the game away? Bets, anyone?

Britain’s Boris Gump seems confident he can garner the extra 20 or so House of Commons votes he needs to get his shitty Brexit deal done. Maybe it is time for the British people to finally begin that painful journey and come to grips with the terrible mistake they made three-and-a-half years ago when they voted for a return to the way the UK used to be – even if that’s never, ever, coming back, just like the football World Cup.

And what’s with all this fuss over the Irish supporters at the Rugby World Cup drowning out The All Blicks’ haka with that lovely folk song, The Fields Of Athenry? I have thought for many long years how lovely it would be for the Wannabees to turn their backs, drop their dacks and moon those bloody Kiwi war criers. By now, we could be admired and respected around the sporting world as The All Browns. Besides, isn’t it bad enough that they have a far better anthem?
