Tag: knock it off (Page 2 of 6)

Sound of trumpets, enters Paulus Emeritus Grand Poo Bear of China Panda Droppings.


‘The Pax America is not the natural order of things.’


Aussie BS Interpretor: 


Those Americans can shove it right up the clacker. It is our money.’


’Trump has no appetite for war.’


‘As above. Bugger off.’


It is not the Soviet Union. The US must adjust to the reality of China.’


It’s my bloody Imperial project and I’ll determine how this goes, troggies’


‘India’s GDP will not rival China’s’


You’re dreamin’. 


‘US must decide where vital interests lie’


‘With me. Remember who deregulated. That’s right. I’m your Daddy. Who has an investment home or two?’


‘The hysteria of the media.’


‘I own you. No-one compares to me.’ 


John Lee US Study Centre: China has fiscally spent too much on national security and needs to spend more on ageing. 


‘China is a dirty old hag and needs to go jump. It’s that or shares in a dermatologist. We’re gunna win.’


Paul Maley, Oz defence journalist: What do you all think? 


Ignore. Cyborg. Deadset. Probably military intelligence on the side.


Martin Parkinson, former PM&C:  China is not monolithic. What is it trying to achieve? 


Deflect, pose, deflect. Onya Marty. Hey, what does Treasury look like? Any money? 


Richard Marles, Opp Defence: We need a guiding philosophy. 


Idiot didn’t see the Aussie tourism ad. He’s wearing a George Hamilton tan. Just got off the sun-bed. Ignore. Hey, anyone want to talk about what is happening in South Australia? 


Denis Richardson, Canberra Godfather: What do you suggest? 


Oh good onya Richard. Clown. We don’t do philosophy in defence. We do strategy. 


Marles: A bi-partisan 


Piss off Denis. I am trying to make a point here and get more votes. Go back to Washington. 


Richardson: We’re going fine.


Defenced ‘up the gonads. I know everything. 


Hamish Douglass, Magellan Funds: China is a great opportunity and I would ignore it at your peril. 


Chinese officials in the audience. How do I spell Uighar? Is that with a yuan? 


Andrew Michelmore, Mining Honcho: I think regarding China, you have to do things differently now. 


If we played dirty before, we just play dirty, better. I love mining. Greenies piss off. 


John Lord, Huawei: Huawei is a completely innocent party and as ex-NAVY I trust it completely. 


Don’t ask about cables, submarines or why ex-NAV is working with a possibly outlawed Chinese tech company. Its top secret.


Albert Tse, Chinese Capital Stuff, Honey: We’re not all trying to take over the world. 


But making money helps. Look at me. Don’t ask how I got here. 


David Irvine FIRB and Cyber Security:  Tech theft and data protection are the big issues. 


You need us. We are so protective of you little people, said the Canberra Cardinal. Kiss my ring. 


Get me a bucket


Female Media Panel: There should be more Chinese experts. We feel threatened. China should let us do our work. 


Poor us. We are so lowly and so rarely given the opportunity to say our piece. But we work for the media. The one that gets to talk a lot. We are all women. Look how important we are! Boo-hoo.


Oscar race here. 


This whole bastard conference is about China. I wish I was bloody China.


We want you to use your platform.


Aha. We want.


The kid border thing


The problem with the kid border thing is that like the refugee issue in Australia, there are national security issues at the heart of it and you don’t want to admit that. But yes, naturally I don’t believe in it. What’s to believe in?


Anyhow, and the border issue and Trump


And Trump. Yes, diabolical. And what? Are we to constantly consider the issues of the American President pressing when internationally there is quite a lot on the plate? You understand that you constantly try to garner more leverage by distracting people from the real issues and perhaps that isn’t exactly


But you know what the President says


What the President says and what is happening at a macro level are two totally different things. He is desperately trying to lose the next election so that the grey police can continue to keep Washington and the capitals ‘cleansed’ as it were from undesirables. Not exactly white shirts. But the tactics are mostly underhand and underreported.


Do you think that unqualified people should be in charge of policy?


No. I didn’t say that. I simply cannot enter constantly into US domestic politics when there are bigger things at play including the fact you had me on a bathroom floor two weeks ago. But Justin Bieber must be really struggling. He probably was but not from glancing in the wrong direction or deigning to go by helicopter over a desert. The crime.


But if you say something


What do you want me to say? I don’t think mistreatment of illegals is humane? Of course it bloody isn’t. But like Australia they will drag this out as part of some human rights agenda when in fact, strategy may have more to do with it.


You don’t know that.


Oh I think I do. And it is inhumane. And yes, I think what the young Democrats are saying is brilliant. What is not to like? I just have other things on my mind.


He is racist.


And? What? You elected him. So, unelect him. Perhaps if you discussed the racist nature of large countries bombing the crap out of smaller ones we’d also have a discussion. I guess then America would not be so outspoken. You see how Empires work? They are only for you if you do not criticise them. If for instance, you say ‘hey Philippines! You are Olaf’ this is not popular. But it is true. Very true.


So you think they should go China’s way.


I am simply saying that if they continue to egg on America’s involvement, a relationship so beneficial to the Philippines they have spent most of their time in the 20th Century abroad looking for work, they will be one of the first hit. Or, if you like your ideas neutered and palatable, they are in an area of ‘hotly contested’ waters or something. Regardless, that’s the dealio and no amount of flag waving from self interested parties that will be sitting back in a hotel room as it happens, makes me think otherwise. But knock yourselves out. If the East keeps this up, they’ll just erase themselves from any possible revival that might have signified something curiously beneficial.


That’s bullshit.


That’s true. Whether or not I advocated the complete opposite is neither here nor there.


Can you even spell Machiavelli?


In the time I would have liked to educate myself, I have been dealing with your incredibly thorough and not so inspiring cyber obfuscation. And allegedly, not talented enough for your ‘work’. If work means ‘politically acceptable journalism advocated by security services that serve nations not people.’ But if you are suggesting whether I am aware that politicians change policy, yes.


Give us a policy.


When I recover from the poison, you get a policy. Dealing with whatever little gem I am going to proffer next as you tell me repeatedly how lacking in talent and morals and strength I am while you beat me down until I cannot get up, I might. By the way, can you please tell a few of your subjects their acting is atrocious. I hate to lose people because you didn’t train them well enough. I thought there always had to be a kernel of truth. I don’t see the kernel.


So wonderful dealing with an expert.


I’m going to do investigative journalism via charades 

It is really good idea

Because let’s face it 

An elephants arse from space 

Can see 

Everything you write 

Even if you in your mind

Camouflaged what you were to ask


I wonder 

If they know 

It is sort of sad 

That no-one really cares 

That no-one even raises the issue 


Surveillance so you cannot do your job 

I mean 


Imagine if Silicon Valley 

Could not operate computers 


That is sort of what it is like 

Because they will know what you will ask


You do 


What are you going to do about it? 

I mean,  is the ABC really going to say

That the computers 

Are protected? 


I mean, what can people do to encrypt 

Their information 

And be notified when a government 

Has violated it? 


This is technology

You would engage in

If you were serious about the citizen right to know


Although let’s be frank 

There will always be a way 

For someone to pretend that they are 

A voice of democratic rights 

When in fact

They are just monitoring those 

That really believe


And that 


Really pisses me off 



You’re still a phoney bastard 

If you’re being paid 

To be phoney. 

It’s not like 

You are exonerated 

From stupidity. 




Albania had an earthquake



I wonder whether it has anything to do

With the base? 




Bloody hell

Having to fight for everyone’s right 

Is a bastard pain 

I am so suited 

To a daytime TV show 


I’d get my teeth done

Worry about my veins 

Pick the colour sequins 

Instagram my day 

Have lunch with a powerbroker 

Tell no-one about my tradey on the side 

Hit up a Premiere 

And go gliding near my

Yacht called ‘Velvet Munch’


Make time for a 

Evening swim at Whale Beach and sit there 

Listening to night-time sounds 

The Kooka reminding me 

Of humanity’s lot 



They’ve fucking ear marked me 

For the Virgin Maryann 

Bunch of 





Oh give it break 

If you were serious about using 

All the bastard technology of government 

You’d make everyone’s life


So full of shit. 




Oh good one Jacqui. 

You’re not going to tell us 

What deal you will do with the government 

Bloody legend

Between you and Pauline 

You gotta wonder. 




What would be the problem 

With giving some bastard some

Health assistance? 

Who are you people? 



The placenta three 

Are running the joint 

It’s like the back of the room in Year Six 

They plot 

While we play


They look like a Ron Mueck sculpture 

But those appear 

To be human. 






Grow a penis

Yours looked small 

Even in the 

Petri dish. 





Did you see the big fuck off maps?


I saw.


I mean, look at that.


I saw.


I mean, how can you say that isn’t a threat, hey?


What, as opposed to the F35’s you are selling that most definitely did not employ a large section of local workers? 


The technology comes from multiple leading


Please feel free to document the amount of ‘local’ workers employed and whether there were any ‘foreign interference’ laws violated. I think they call it lobbying in some countries. I mean, not legally of course, because only the Chinese would do that. I mean, clearly. And I know that because Las Vegas and the Air Force and the proximity of test ranges to casinos would in no way suggest that there would be corruption of any sort. I mean you guys are clean. I just think every day ‘MMMMM don’t I love clean eating.’ That’s why I ate a ‘defense’ smoothie in in Las Vegas and churned that motherfucker up until I could very clearly see that, it could be, I am right.


Those are baseless accusations


Of course.


But we’re not building roads everywhere, we’re not


No, point taken there son. What is there is a ‘debt trap’ is there? Sure. Reminds me of those released sex tapes before everyone finds out they are gay.


Have you even examined the terms?


Let me see. Dumb Prime Ministers who run countries and have degrees from Oxford and LSE and hang out at the UN with other Prime Ministers, with more economic advisors than is naturally possible, sign agreements with debt traps. Yeah, that makes sense. That Greek logic of yours is really working overtime. Wait – oh my god! Could there be more to it than that! Could it possibly be, that this is not the end of the story?! NOOOOOOO Scarlett cries, her taffeta skirt swishing in the morning air, as Mame yells


People are voting with their feet! Joshua Wong


Has woken up in his own wet dream. He was probably a pedophilia intake from ‘85. That boy is way too young.


That’s not funny


Is it 20 million funny? Dave Chappelle gets 20 million a session for sitting out on an Ohio farm and mining jokes. Now that my friend, is capitalism.


They are fighting for human rights. For freedom.


You want to dictate the terms but get them to do the heavy lifting? Oh no. I got that bit.


The violence of the police


What? What ‘America the policeman in Gaza’? You mean those police?


This is a crucial time


After you let a bomb rip? I mean, in Aceh they just destroyed the homes of the dirt poor. But this time, I mean you even got some people with big houses. Military innovation one day at a time.


You are not going to try and tell me that you think


How would we know what happened or even why it happened? Transparency nil.


Hurricane Dorian, natural disasters are part of the oceans warming


Not so natural methinks, but plug away.


Science has proven


How the hell does anyone get away with saying the oceans are warming not implicating any military or commercial technology when you got nuclear submarines running around populating the universe like some out of control dipshit


We have stringent laws that stop us from


Do you?


Yes we do.


You knock off your own people by having lax chemical laws that allow people to die from cancer that could have been entirely preventable. I don’t know. I’d have to find those secret laws.


You have no evidence


The cancer clusters you dumb half baked moron, are in all the areas where your petroleum and nuclear companies are located. They even have clusters on your rivers right where you have factories that just happen to specialise in chemicals.


Being a cheap hack


Trojan War over, Aeneas wandering home


Have you ever even read it?


I have.




Not your business.








I’ve got a podcast and a very important podcast it is too




It’s me!


I’m back from the dead and we’re so alive


The world is so alive


Um let’s see


“We all hate Trump.’


Yeah next. That one has had a good run.


‘Russians die in a submarine’


Well, maybe maybe not. Let’s just take that one as it comes.


Well ergh I thought I would interview some experts and as the experts say complete rubbish, I am going to be the expert. S.


That’s right.


I am presenter, expert, producer and content writer. Of my fabulous little podcast show.


Oh, first a song.


‘I love barfing in the toilet


What a lovely way


To show me your looooovvvvveeeee


I love barfing in the toilet


You must be very big and strong’


Actually. That’s not it.


Here it is.


Oh please let me know if I am being too loud


OOHHHHHH I haaaveee a lovely set of tonsssssiiiilllllsssss








I think there was a little agreement




I think there was a little agreement


A tiny weeny little agreement


Between the tiny weeny little peeenies


Of Imran and Donnie




They had a meeting


They had a meeting


It’s a very contentious place


Three of them


No four


If you count the US-A of PRAY


 and Paaakistan and India


Lines in the sand


Well we’ve just sorted it out


And we do it very privately




Well just because


Because we like to have very quiet meetings


About things that matter


And it gets all sorted out


My how things change!


My how things change!


I must leave the cigar room now




They’re having a little meeting










Oh we’re nothin’ at all


We’re nothin’ at all




Just decided


In the teeeny weeny






And it just so happens


In the very same week


Syria rebels forces departed


Now what does that say






But there is this thing


Called the corridor


Wonder what happens






Be careful


Cause you think you might be winning…….


But Aunty gets it all




Aunty gets it all.


(Well, with a little benevolence towards other depleted folks, she dispenses wisely, what style, what charm, what power!)




Knock yourself out


She gets it




(But I’d like to access to the tapes, do you mind?)




If Derry doesn’t want a divided Ireland and America is outraged by the mass shootings, what is the scenario with Libya, Turkey; the INF withdrawal, the missile statements from  Pompeo and Yemen bombings? 

There is no link

Right so, when I discuss these things, how is it different say, from a reporter or a commentator or an analyst at a think tank? Let’s say, people view them as stoking certain current international positions. Will they be viewed as pariahs? 

Well, Trump is getting a caning

Yes. But that hasn’t changed policy, has it? I mean, when I have tried to change policy – or when people enter politics, isn’t that effectively trying to bring about an end to situations or alleviate the plight of people who are voiceless? 


So when I say that the lack of water in certain countries as a result of policy means that it is imperative that people in Africa find ways to make sure that they have access to clean and reliable water sources, how likely is that? 

Well, I am not sure 

Because at the end of the day, rulers have to be making decisions that make lives better not harder for the constituent. 


Right. So when I – out of my sense of service – look at whether or not water sources are clean, is that not a ruler being effective and compassionate about the subjects that rely on my good judgment? 

Yes, I would say yes of course

Good. That is all I wanted to hear you say. So, make clean water in Africa more reliable and make sure the people have it. 

Well the rivers 

I can’t see how you can say yes to plants and factories and other industrial items and not think about whether or not the clean water sources will affect people locally. I mean, their health. 

There are many programs 

Good. Because that is what I want and that is what I wanted to hear. Great work. Keep going. I’d like that an immediate result to be implemented….immediately. Clean water and sources accessible now. And some start up fund lot can make sure that it happens. I don’t want to see people lining up for water in a drought ravaged river. Or toxic water in community situations. 

How is this linked to the international situation that you 

Oh. Well. I just want to know why being outspoken or concerned with health issues is derided. I thought it might be best to keep going while I can. 

You have chosen some pretty powerful people to argue with 

I don’t see them as the enemy.

Well I would say 

How do you propose we deal with surveillance? Modify behaviours? Turn into robots? What is your belief here

That we be careful of what we say when 

How can a satellite determine the difference between theatre, satire and reality? It cannot. Only humans can. Therefore humans know when I am behaving to violate intimidating censorship and when I am performing. Only humans. 

What if they have no sense of humour? 

The satellites or the humans? 

Obviously huu

Then, they are serious about the issues of State. I see no point in it. Not a good PR exercise. 

But they do not have to absorb poor behaviour by the citizen. 

Of course they do. They are the State. The power quotient is uneven therefore the stronger set must endure as they are the larger force. The individual is not plankton to be picked off for amusement. 

Coming from you 

I was on a floor. Fourth time. Poisoned. I have not ever made it public until last month. Don’t tell me about amusements. 

Your fricatives have frankly 

If you work with incredible power on your side, you wear it. Surely they knew the consequences. 

Probably not. 

If they don’t wear it, they are the Mafia. 

There is a middle ground




Aha! A protest! Wait. No more protests!


Oh it looks like yes


A bit of biffo from the police.


Not happy Hong Kong. Not happy Hong Kong!


Oh a little bit of teargas


Did anyone get that on TV? Did we get it for the cameras? Have you got your flak jacket on? Lucky. Bloody hell. Might lose a shirt. Stain the Hugo Boss.


Oh very volatile. Oh very volatile this democracy.


Wait There’s been another press conference. Yep, the protestors are out of control and Carrie Lam is a cow. That’s the sum of it people. That’s the sum of the parts.


Someone has lost an eye. No, forget the bombing in the Middle East this is real stuff folks! Real real time stuff.


Now we have the cavalcade of commentators wading in. Let’s see what they have to say.


Oh bless. Yep, China is the baddie. Works doesn’t Canberra? Yes works for Canberra. Works for Hong Kong. Works for wait are those US flags? Oh yes looks like we have some US flags in the proceedings. Nice touch there. Just in case we didn’t know who was promoting democracy. Nice DNA, gene pool not to be denied. Works for the US of A.


Gosh, this is game is really hard to predict. What with the University charges in Australia, the foreign interference laws, and the island fracas what do you think is going to happen here folks? ASEAN has just moved into place. Decided to do some warship thing with some other blokes. South East Asian Nations. Wild concept.


Oh look, a nice young fresh bloke to lead the charge. Well Well well, who would have thought. That’s the way. Who bloody needs university anyway. Rule of law and all that. Wouldn’t be a barrister every five kilometres in HK to sort the whole melee out now would there? No. Such a big place. How would you find them? Difficult. Much be tough. To find so many well appointed lawyers and stuff. Must be hard this constitutional stuff.


Wait, my assistant has just handed me the agreement. Yep, looks like the Joint Declaration that was signed between the British and China. I have it here, it says:


‘The law that is currently in force in Hong Kong will remain unchanged’


Uh oh. That’s not good for the Chinese side now is it folks. Straight up penalty there. Yep, easy two points between the posts. Oh dear. How are they going to get out of that one? Seems to me with the extradition they have just walked straight into a trap wouldn’t you say? Oh too right. No, that one I am afraid on the Hawkeye is not going to go their way.


And now we have the counter move from the mainland. Also from the memorandum also signed between the British and the Chinese.


Wait. Wait. Here it is – looks like Hong Kongers are under ‘under national law of the PRC… all Hong Kongers are Chinese nationals’


Uh oh. That really muddies the pie. That’s a real problem there. And foreign affairs and defence are under control of the PRC’


Wonder what happens now. I mean, is this a foreign issue or a defence issue? Imagine there is a fair bit of discussion going on by coaches of both sides.


The question is: are there defence assets inside Hong Kong that are important to the mainland? Other than the whole bloody island of course. This is not an insignificant question.


We’ve already seen the bloody mess in the players lounges so this is no laughing matter. Hell of a way to play the game don’t you think?


Quite like the balaclava and the mask touch. Always works always worked in Indonesia, you get a nice big fat pic on the front of Time Magazine. Bloody beauty. Someone is bound to win a human rights prize for that one. And then they’ll forget what they were fighting about in the first place.


Few penalties required though. Not quite finished yet. Boris Johnson is bound to say something completely stupid wait oh he has said something has he? No. Just his half brother setting up a real estate fund thing. Good timing. Nice one Max.


Moving right along, the Chinese have responded and said that it was a historical document that has no practical relevance. What do you think of that ey? No practical relevance well this is a game of football that has taken us from Africa to the Middle East to the BRI to Hong Kong I dunno, I reckon there has been a lot of practical relevance to what has been happening around the traps with China on the splurge eh? Oh no, I reckon that is almost sin bin. I mean, a few porkies there eh? Jesus. That’s a call and a half.


Oh the G7 has said something but let’s be frank. We haven’t got time for a photo op. No, photo ops not here. People are out on the streets! Get with the program! God I haven’t had this much fun since the Carnation revolution, wait the Saffron revolution wait the do we have a briar bush revolution? No. No roly poly revolutions here that must be still waiting in the Australian bush. Waiting for the rain.


They’ve been marching in the rain in Hong Kong! Marching in the rain! When was the last time we got out and marched? Well. Probably weren’t going to get extradited to the mainland. To be fair. Just marching straight to the meat pie stand. The hot dog with the lot. I’ll have two beers and make them not light.


Yes, thankyou to our fine friends in DSD they just keep our conversations and scramble them until someone on the other side actually thinks it is policy. Brilliant strategy. Real Australian outback stuff. The backline doing incredible work and just throwing it to the wings when the ASX looks a little weak. This is called the Sweet Spot. Stuff of legends.


I mean, who wants to meet someone in a lane way in Beijing on a dark night? Not sure. Not sure my Mandarin is up to scratch. Might leave that to the experts.


What do you think do you think democracy has had a hard run on it? I don’t know. Bloody lot of ships in the waters. Lot of activity on the democratic front, might be a few laughs around here, two Gulf Wars, Libya, a War on Terror, Syria, Yemen and now this. I mean on a scale of one to ten, how hard up do you think the democratic forces are here folks?


Yep. Think they’re having a bit of tug. Never mind, all fun and games and well, it isn’t coming out of our budget. Lucky. I mean, other than a few boats that we designed anyway. ‘Cause we are Nancy boy crawlers that get all our ideas from the missus but forget that there is a TM printed on the big fat gazoo. Yeah, that’s how it is played out here. These are Games For The Ages.


The big question is: how many of the other coaches and players are in on it, right? I mean you got Malaysia, a real little stellar number there at limiting Chinese influence, you got Cambodia everyone mad as hell about the free passes the Chinese are getting inside although let’s not forget Australia’s role in the 90’s, I think there might be a little more to that than meets the eye, what with Australia on the ground in Asia eh?


Not sure whether some contraband uranium got through the lines and into the hands of some of the opposing side. Now that would cause a real historical stink wouldn’t it? I mean, if anyone was looking at history and let’s be frank. This game is too important for history. It is for passion! Ideology! Straight up stupidity! I mean, what is a game of geopolitical football without the sort of hair raising stupidity that lends it so much credibility among the non-initiated eh?


I mean you have got all these planes and I mean, who doesn’t like planes? I mean, just hand a few over to Taiwan because that is sure to ease tensions don’t you think? I mean that is just certifiable gold there. Forget the blue water navy! Forget the chain of pearls! Just keep handing over the planes.


But moving along, you got Vietnam – well enough said there, the wind blows very democratic in that corner at the moment, and you got the actor Rodrigo ‘I’m for China but not really but I am from the South and the whole family can run this joint cause this is the Phillipines and we can do what we want’ but I think with the Catholic influence there, the Mariana Trench I think it is a little more clear cut but if it was me, I mean I am just saying, you are well inside some contested territory and you can never know which way this game goes so, you want to make sure the lighter 5/8th’s, the forwards aren’t punished for some reckless moves but not popular, no not popular in this part of town but at the end of the day, I dunno, I’d be a bit cautious when you got God Fearing Loving Filipinos doing the grunt work eh?


Well yes, whole bloody region and that’s why this is so important. I mean, you might think it is just some stupid drop out university kids causing trouble so they can get a Masters at a US university but the real question would be what people think in Laos, Indonesia, you know, the heartlands of this debate. They are the real fans. The real believers. And this is where these two sides have got to start playing with a bit of ticker.


No ‘oh yeah, here is a little money for the Saturday shopping, go buy yourself a fast train’ no no that’s not going to work. They’re going to have to go deep inside and actually care about the fans! That’s right! The players are actually going to have to care about the outcome and work for the ticket price!


Not a little ‘oh just give me my money thanks, I am a good old Roman soldier and where is the Macca’s in my barracks’ No not going to work! I think these teams have their work cut out for them because it may be that with the demise of the dummy pass as a real ploy, I mean everyone can see it coming, they are going to have to take it to the people. I mean, I don’t think the old style of play is going to work. Colour by numbers is out mate! They both have some serious thinking to do.


Well no I don’t think anything it is not for me to comment at this stage.


How would you call it? Get in a lawyer son. Bound to be one in Hong Kong. Not sure I’d be lighting match with so much at stake. Can’t say I fancy a match up between some tanks and a few skinny uni boys that are still fed by their mother.


The problem is if the tanks go in: China’s lost the game. If the protestors don’t negotiate, they could lose momentum. It will be up to the backs to defend the ground they’ve gained in the last quarter. Clearly, Hong Kong has decided it wants independence so it is all touch and go here. You’re going to see some big moves in the next little while and let’s remember: China is not a team of small Anaheim Ducks.


Could be wrong. Could be wrong. Been wrong before.


And the great thing is, we have Donny to help us remember: the markets go up, the markets go down. But someone always makes money.


No, the arrests are a downright problem, what we have here are real diplomatic incidents and with the trading might of China, the Huw-are-we dilemma I think we can clearly say that everyone is in two minds about the clout of the new kid on the block. Canada is not happy. Australia is not happy but happy to take the money. Well, who doesn’t love money?


And they love to play the boys don’t they? All the boys just beside themselves with Five Eyes. No a brown eye. No, Five Eyes I have heard it from here, but there was a brown eye but we’re leaving it right there. I’m getting an EDIT signal from the control tower on that one. Five Eyes it is.


The Brits have gone in on the Middle East warship thing although giving you a bit of inside information here, energy is shipped through via other means so not sure about that as real play-on-play, significant of course with Iran but at the end of the day, every move has to mean something.


That Modi medal care of the UAE really set the cat amongst the pigeons but was probably a bit of a ‘suck you Qatar’ a bit of friendly inter-Mussie Shia-Sunni down low mud wrestle. Not sure that is top quality play, just a bit of heckling from the side now that Qatar has the World Cup.


You got Kashmir, you got Syria, you got Putin and Erdogan doing a little red lap dance, I mean, this game is still up in the air in some areas. We’ve not even covered Russia up North.


We’ll have to get to the Ukraine next show.


Anyway, there you have it, there’s a stop in play in Hong Kong while everyone works out the next step. And be warned.


The ANC will be blamed for everything. They don’t understand how to run a country.


Oh wait, someone else did the run the country and just left half of the population out. And then it was handed over.


What are they protesting about in Hong Kong?
