…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
1.- A marriage? That would be a real distraction to female journalists, but would annoy the ruling coven no end. Besides that her live-in hairdresser has been divorced for a long time. No red hot drama there.
2.- A separation from the live-in hairdresser and free-loader-in-chief? Possible, but that would upset all the spongers, undoubtedly a large part of Labor constituency, who live off rich women or taxpayers. It would have to be followed by a new romance, but see No 1 above. It would have to be a married man, preferably an Aboriginal.
3.- A pregnancy? I’ll leave that distasteful option to your nightmares. Her pregnancy and a late term abortion would be a different matter, for, according to the feminists propaganda, all women want abortions, more often the better. It is a strike against misogyny.
4.- A new pair of glasses? That is, the real new glasses MkII? Very likely. We will have to watch Hilary “what difference does it make” Clinton. Julia copied her dress and her glasses recently for the unveiling of the Shortest Election Campaign in History and we know that she hasn’t had an idea of her own since her “young and naive” Australian Workers Union “slush” funds’ days. Maybe Ms Clinton’s hairstyle? That would jell with No 2 above.
5.- Xenophobia? Oops, done just now. So well, in fact, that Pauline Hanson approves. I worked it out why Labor thinkers claim that the foreigners coming here on the so called s.457 visa to work and pay taxes are bad; and that the people coming here without any documents, not working and living off Australian taxpayers, are good. The reason – the former, if they happen to stay, are unlikely to vote Labor, while the latter are almost guaranteed to do so.
6.- A general strike? – Oops, in the government. That will await benighted Abbott.
7.- An Aboriginal riot?– It was tried already and didn’t work out as planned. [Fog of Chaos – Australian Prime Minister flees her voters] Perhaps the Scottish accent caused the problem somewhere along the line of command. Another attempt is unlikely while she is in power.
8.- A feminist riot? Well, they are running riot in her government already, but with their organisational abilities… Forget that one too.
She proved herself capable of anything amoral and she is totally shameless and unprincipled – undoubtedly a very good pick, from a crowded field of similarly qualified contenders, by the union apparatchiks who try to rule the country. She may still surprise us.
I leave aside a possibility of a socialist putsch, where her Government, utilising the union thugs on the one end and the mother-in-law (a.k.a. Governor-General) of Bill Shorten on the other would simply postpone the elections indefinitely on any number of manufactured grounds.
Then there is the Finkelstein’s media muzzle design – to shut up everybody not pre-approved by McTernan-Conroy-Dreyfus Truth Troika. [Fog of Chaos – Finklestein’s Final Solution] The late unlamented Roxon’s planned law to stifle any dissent is still on the front burner and the Labor prop the Greens, a party most to lose from a free public discourse, urges the utmost haste.
The last two could be hardly described as stunts, though the Germans in 1933 could have done so in a sadly misguided “knowledge” that something like that simply can’t happen in a civilised country.
Finally we get to an assassination hoax. Of course, the danger there is that with Gillard’s record it could actually succeed. Yet it would have to be more serious than that of Liberal hypocrite Howard, who donned a bullet proof jacket on the spurious chimera of an assassination threat in order to drum up support for his iniquitous gun laws. Still, now, just like then, the journalists would swallow it whole.
The idea is not new but still in use. The last month the leader of Bulgaria’s ethnic-Turkish political party, Ahmed Dogan was fired at by an attacker with a non-lethal gas pistol in front of TV cameras. Dogan’s opponents claim it was a hoax. His would-be- assailant is an ethnic Turk.
Just a day before the 2004 elections Taiwanese president Chen Shui-Bian survived an assassination attempt, which his opponents described as a hoax. He was elected by a slim margin. It is unlikely that Gillard would wish to follow his footsteps too closely. He (and his wife) are currently serving a nineteen years sentence for corruption.
