  45. O/t Tony Blair comes (very late)to recognize the bleeding obvious…in his speech,in today’s Oz.
    “One of the basic problems with the British Justice System id that it places too much EMPHASIS on the RIGHTS of the ACCUSED.
    For 8 years I have battled the Criminal Justice System to get it to change.
    Only Anti Social Behaviour Laws have made a difference.
    We are trying to fight 21st Century crime as if we still lived in the 19th century,the time of Charles Dickens.
    The whole of our system STARTS from the proposition that its DUTY is to protect the INNOCENT from being WRONGLY convicted.
    (This is still important) But our PRIMARY DUTY SHOULD BE to allow LAW ABIDING CITIZENS to live in SAFETY.
    NOT abandoning human rights but DECIDING WHOSE (human rights) COME FIRST!”
    Blair talks of bringing back the neighbourhood beat system of policing.
    The article also notes that the U.K. Police are Citizens in Uniform while Europe and many other places favour the military style police.It also notes that you can’t be a social worker and police officer at the same time and laments the disappearance of bus and train conductors,park keepers and other public defenders against anti social behaviour…...

  52. Hey, is it fair that Lileks is in this competition?  I mean, he’s a professional writer.  Like of books.  That people buy.  Not ones that make up bargain buy bins.  Like “Not Happy This Isn’t Selling John”.

    For that matter McEnroe should be booted too.

    What’s next, Iowahawk? 

    For that matter, maybe all the people with their own blogs shouldn’t be allowed to compete for that county fair ribbon Tim picked up somewhere.  1977 Cuyahoga County Fair Sheep Competition 5th Place?  Cleveland had a county fair?  And what does that have to do ...? Oh well, I want it.  It’s just the type of thing that will get me some well deserved recognition from Karl.

    Ahem, the one I’ve created and used to some mild applause at the White House is:

    Chimpy Tsunamihurricanetornado

    Because it’s not fair!

    And let’s not even think of letting in Mark Steyn or Andrew Bolt.  That is certainly not fair.

    And nobody from the White House either. 

    And did I say Iowahawk?

    If we’re going to have a competition, we need rules.  We do.

  70. o/t The university of technology,Sydney has claimed a legal victory over the ABC after it won the right to use thousands of complaints to the broadcaster for a research project.
    Their Australian Centre for Independent Journalism made an F.O.I. application to the N.S.W. Admin Appeals Tribunal last year and was last week granted access to complaints about the A.B.C.‘s coverage of the Middle East from September 2000 to Sept 2004. ABC argued it was exempt from FOI act and cost of releasing the docs was too high.ACU adjunct professor and ex ABC news and current affairs director Peter Manning (is planning) a research project.
    Centre Director,Chris Nash said there had been rumours over the years of a sustained campaign of complaints by individuals and organisations particularly against Middle East coverage.
    AS WELL AS EXAMINING THE BALANCE OF THE ABC REPORTAGE,THE ACIJ WANTED TO FIND OUT WHETHER THE ABC’S COMPLAINTS PROCESS, SET UP “TO KEEP THE ABC OPEN AND TRANSPARENT AND FAIR”,WAS BEING ABUSED IN SOME WAYS.
    On the question of expense, the ABC had anticipated it would take 15 mins per file and need an extra employee at a cost of $17,917 -38…which it described as a substantial cost.
    Senior tribunal member Mason Allen said the ABC website showed the broadcaster had revenue of $880M in the 12 months to June o4.Against this sum, $17,ETC is hardly substantial he said.Mr Allen further criticized the ABC, saying the FOI act had been operating since 1982 anD “By now all commonwealth agencies should be capable of making provision for compliance.
    The ABC head of audience and consumer affairs said their strongest objection was “BREACHING A DUTY OF CONFIDENTIALITY IT OWED TO COMPLAINANTS”.

  87. #76 Stoop Davey Dave,

    Oh, did you finally wake up from your Victoria Beer induced drunken state at Tim Blair’s house?  I hope you saw my note written on your forehead in indelible ink to CLEAN UP THIS MESS YOU POOR EXCUSE FOR A NEOCON!  Just so you know I wasn’t picking on you, I left a similar note on the foreheads of Richard McEnroe, PW, Kae, arbed nilknarf, ekw, Nora, and a guy who bore a startling resemblence to William Powell.

    If you don’t mind, I would greatly appreciate if you wouldn’t bring up the wriggling fingers thing.  It brings back very bad memories of my presentation at the World Neocon Continuing Education Conference a few weeks back.  Specifically, I was conducting a very enlightening lecture on current trends in lake moving techniques.  I was just going over the Japanese weather machine (plusses:  locality focused, minuses:  can’t read Japanese) versus the space lasers (plusses:  extremely powerful, minuses:  the user manual is in Ferengi or something). 

    Unfortunately, all through the session Iowahawk was heckling me.  It was very unprofessional I thought.  I’m talking about Iowahawk.  (curls fingers in a wiggling manner)  I’m sure most attendees were becoming very annoyed by his attention stealing act.  Finally I turned to Karl and said in my firmest voice “are you going to do something about this?”.  And Karl says “sure, why don’t you take over the remainder of wronwright’s hour and regale us with Chiraq’s strong measures to deal with the French torchers”.

    At that point, I just slinked away.

    Very good.  Your entry captures the true essence of Daily Kossack-style Bush Derangement Syndrome, and does so succinctly.

    Don’t feel too bad wronwright.  They completely canceled my talk on the chemistry of new paints for black helicopters.  I can’t imagine why.  And after I went through all those security checks, too.

    “Second Wives’Club linked to French riots.”
    French employment minister Gerard Larcher has claimed that polygamy could have played a role in nearly three weeks of rioting in French cities and towns.
    Ethnic minorities faced discrimination partly because of multiple marriages.
    Polygamy is officially banned in France and punishable by jail but authorities tolerate the existence of about 30,000 mainly African families where there is more than one wife.Visas were granted to allow thousands of women from Mali,Mauritania,Senegal and Gambia to move into the residences in France of married couples until the early 1990’s.A former,hardline interior minister moved to stem the flow then but the government was forced to relax in the face of protests.
    Now,“second wives” who have French born children or who have lived in France for more than 15 years cannot be expelled and are granted residency.
    For polygamous families who came to France before 1993,residency is granted only if the two wives do not live at the same address.Monsieur Larcher said big polygamous families sometimes led to antisocial behaviour by youths who did not have a father figure in the home.
    This made employers more cautious about hiring staff from ethnic minorities.” source recent Oz….

    My god geoff, would it help if I got two puppets and play acted the answer for you?  The short of it is Stoop Davy Dave and his cohorts drank all of Tim Blair’s beer, ale, lager, and especially the bitter.  And knowing them, they probably drank his extremely rare cask of Sumerian mead, the one that Rove commanded me to bring back via the time machine (which unfortunately resulted in Australia somehow becoming an unattached continent, something I still can’t figure out).

    To paraphrase that great philosopher, Scotty, “What is it you ask?  Um, well, it’s green”.

    Anyway, SDD drank your bitter.  As he stated to me in that singularly flippant manner of his, “Yep, there’s no bitter bubby, it’s a bitter cup to drink, no?”  Bastard.

    —————————————————————

     

    I know, I know, Fisk should be reading blogs and sending off emails cos he’s a journo. It’s part of the job description. How silly of me.

    Yes, very silly of you. Journalists and pundits like Fisk deal in information. For him to willfully avoid the greatest instant-access repository of information is risible. You did see that he said, “I don’t use the Internet”, right, dirt? And not just, “I don’t read blogs and use e-mail”, right, dirt?

     

    Anyway, this is a chance to make a personal attack, so let’s go for it.

    Dirtroad, I’m going to explain this to you very slowly, because I know you lefties have a hard time grasping it:

    If…you…are…criticized…for…saying…
    something…stupid…or…false…,
    it…is…not…a…personal…attack.

    Grow…up.

     

    Next time he reports something we don’t feel comfortable with (or which doesn’t fit our “fantasy”, PW) we can smeer him as a non-emailer. What a crime. Outrageous.

    No, next time he reports utter falsehoods or makes more absurd predictions with an accuracy record of about .005%, we can justifiably criticize him as a asshat.

    BTW, the “fantasy” stuff PW is talking about and which you ridicule by putting in quotes might refer to things like saying the defenses of Baghdad are an impenetrable deathtrap for American forces who will be mercilessly cut to pieces. What part of that wasn’t a fantasy, dirt? Fisk’s work is full of this kind of nonsense. Why do you put on the air of a sneering sophisticate when you are so credulous of a fraud like Fisk?

  169. Sumerian mead…hmmm. Sumerian mead…  Sumerian mead… oh, hold on! Hold on just one moment, Boyo. Sumerian mead comes from ancient Sumer which is nothing other than present-day IRAQ!!!!

    It’s Iraqi mead! Made with Iraqi honey which is made by Iraqi honey bees. This is black market mead! Someone has been pedaling Iraqi mead under its ancient name so Westerners wouldn’t think it was dangerous or illegal.

    But clearly, illegal it is, Bucko. Stand up, then, eh. Do you have any Sumerian mead on ya? Huh? Best be coughing that stuff up here. Just hand that barrel of it over to me right now and I’ll look the other way, clean slate and all, eh? Of course I’m a real customs agent, whaddya think I am, an American layabout with no job, no wife, no kids, no dog, no home, no life? Huh? Is that what you think I am? Well, m’lad, you’ve go another think coming.

    Already received that other think? That was quick. You still think I’m an American layabout, blah blah blah, but now I’m also an alcoholic and a degenerate thief? Alright, me bucko, well just have to take you down to the… erm, whaddya-call-it…station. Yeah. That’s it. The station, for God’s sake. Of course it’ll be a lot easier all ‘round if ya simply hand over the mead, so…I don’t want to take you down there. Here’s another chance…hand it over…OK, one more chance…

  170. Oh, a cooooooler.  Here again, we’re the same.  Americans like to haul cold beer or pops in coolers in the trunk of the cars—just in case.  I recall a couple years back driving the family up to Cleveland to watch the Reds play the Cleveland Indians.  A lot of fun that was, with Cleveland and Cincinnati fans playfully teasing each other over who had the best team.  (For the record, Cleveland did and still does). 

    As I was removing the luggage from my van (my wife and mother-in-law no where to be found of course) I spied a guy a couple cars down who was rolling his cooler.  He had a long handle that made it easier for him.

    I want one of those.  Santa damn well better bring me one of those instead of another pair of gloves.  Stocking it with Victoria Bitter would be a nice holiday gesture too.

    (Is XXXX bitter better than Victoria?  Can I even get either in an American supermarket?)

    THE war in Iraq could last for decades with British troops unlikely to withdraw without a “highly unlikely” split with Washington, a report says today.

    The Oxford Research Group non-governmental organisation, which assesses constructive approaches to dealing with international terrorism and the “war on terror”, says the war in Iraq is only in its early stages.

    What the hell is a “constructive approach” to dealing with terrorism???  sounds like the usual load of touchy, feely leftist crap where we try to appease the swines…..

    and if we didn’t have a Holden ute to bring the grog, etc, we’d put it in the boot (trunk) of our car.

    And a slab is an Australian unit of beer measure. A slab is a carton (used to be two dozen, but these days you can get cartons of 30 cans). I have also heard them called ‘cardboard kelvinators’, but I don’t know where that came from.

  176. (Is XXXX bitter better than Victoria?  Can I even get either in an American supermarket?)

    Yes.  It MUST be served ice cold.

    The XXXX sold in the US and Europe tastes completely different to the XXX produced at the Milton Brewery in Queensland.

    That said, I believe that XXXX is an acquired taste.

  177. Murph, the difference must be the water. To try a beer from a certain country you must go there.

    And you spelt XXXX wrong up there. Never mind, in Queensland we can’t spell Beer, therefore it’s XXXX - and we have the Ekka (can’t spell “exhibition”, either), too.

    In Aus it’s essential to have two refrigerators, one for the food and one for the beer - as the beer needs to be ice-cold; it’s to avoid arguments with the food preparer of the house about frozen lettuce and so on.

    Great!  You should have told me before you ordered.  What were the other two?  (Doesn’t matter.  You can’t go wrong with any of his stuff.)

    His first novel, Decline and Fall is brilliant. (The only laugh-out-loud book I know apart from Lucky Jim and Huckleberry Finn.) I also went for Scoop.  Most well-known book is Brideshead Revisited which I reckon is a bit flabby.  Good one for conservatives (not) coping with the modern age is A Handful of Dust

    The trilogy based on his war experience The Sword of Honour (‘Men at Arms’, ‘Officers and Gentlemen’, and ‘Unconditional Surrender’) is one of the very best things - along with the fall of fascism, maybe - to come out of WW2. (Waugh believed that the alliance with Stalin was a betrayal of the cause.)

    He was a Catholic convert and an irascible conservative.  While a nasty bugger personally - brutal old snob - there aren’t too many writers who have done the dilemmas of living in today’s world better or funnier.  Bane to the moonbats of his time.

    His writing is English prose at its most crisp and stylish and he has a genius for dialogue and black humour.

    I started with The Loved One at school and liked it.  My English teacher, a Christian brother of the non-molesting variety, gave me Decline and Fall.  Always grateful to him for that.

    I’d suggest ‘Decline and Fall’ but those two are fine. 

    ‘Put Out More Flags’ has a go at the lefty poets (Auden and Spender) who fled England for the US at the beginning of the war.  They and their artie/commie sympathisers get a merciless going-over.  Features scapegrace Basil Seal and a child billeting racket which is a killer. (Watch out for the Connellys!)

    ‘Vile Bodies’ is the ‘Less than Zero’ of its day which should not be taken as a recommendation of Bret Easton Ellis.  Novel features an effort to make green bowler hats fashionable.

    Must shut up.  Spoiling them for you.

  182. I had XXXX off the wood in Brisbane it was an excellent drop. Australians don’t normally take kindly to beers for other states (though having said that, Coopers and some Tassie beers have national status). VB is the beer that’s left in the bath with the tepid water at the end of the party. It means somebody had some left over from their party and brought it along to yours. They parked it in the ice in the bath and then proceeded to steal decent beer from unsuspecting guests. It’s not uncommon for cans of VB to move from bathtub to bathtub thoughout a summer in a kind of herd migration. Some scientist should put a tracking device on one. Better still we should all have a moratorium and hand in all our VB at some depot. It is actually upsetting when towards the end of the evening you are plunging your hand into ice looking for a beer and keep coming out with a VB

    Terrible terrible stuff.

    It makes me ask -did we ever see these same cartoonists represent Dorian Gray Clinton or his fawning wife in anything BUT sympathetic caricatures?  Not in Australia anyway. 
    Examples anyone, for comparison?
    My angle is that the REAL Clinton was SO embarassingly awful that the leftish cartoonists had to be in self-denial all the time just to draw him at all. 
    So the worst they allowed themselves to draw was a bland, blimpish kind of figure,

  187. A couple years back I went to a sports bar with a neighbor and he ordered some draft beer for both of us.  They came in 22 ounce frosted glasses.  Best damn beer I ever drank.  I had three of them.  Tasted sweet almost.

    I asked the lady what was I drinking.  She replied Guiness.  Good stuff that.

    The beer was on sale.  So were half pound burgers (with mushrooms and BBQ sauce).  Yum.  Onion slivers.  And baseball games were playing on about 20 TV screens carefully positioned around the joint.

    I thought to myself this is probably what heaven looks like. I bet the 50 guys or so that were there chugging beers thought the same.  Not many ladies for some reason though.  If I was a gal on the search for a guy, that probably be a good place to go.  Nice place.  Just very nice.

    Sober 20 years and you have to bring up Guinness. Do you realize what you’ve done?

    Let me explain:

    Let’s say we married a girl we liked a lot. Maryann, let’s call her. She’s really good for us. She keeps us out of trouble, and she’s faithful. As long as we’re with her we are going to be OK. Safe. Happy. Strong.

    Then, a friend of ours says, Oh, by the way, I just ran into Lola Zambambazonga, remember her? With the nice chaloties and the perfect ass and…

    Yeah. Yeah. We remember Lola Zambambazonga, wronwright. She turned us every which way but loose then spit us out. We were broken, destroyed, ripped apart, skewered and roast on a spit. But man, what a ride. Nonetheless, we’re sticking with Maryann. OK?

    Soooooo, not that I’m interested exactly, because I’m not, but… where, exactly did you see Lola?

    See, wronwright, Guinness is my Lola Zambambazonga, the most sublime drink on earth. Coming out of a tap it is something that no man could possibly have made. It is ambrosia. Drinking glasses of Guinness at a sports bar with NFL games on ten TVs and smoking cigarettes with no one saying squat about it…Heaven.

    My first drink of it was 40 years ago in London. My last one…I can’t really talk about that yet. Even after 20 years, the wound still hurts. You might get over Lola, but you never get over Guinness.

  193. re. XXXX vs. VB.  A contest I’ve applied considerable time and effort to over the years.
    The difference is not only the water, but also the amount of malt, the Victor Bravo being by far the richer, earthier brew.  But still, to find an industrial beer worth of the title ‘bitter’, you’d have to try WA’s Emu Bitter, which is hands down Australia’s most astringent beer, with no less than 26 IBU’s (international bitterness units).

    Posted by Olrence on 2005 11 23 at 04:20 AM • permalink

  194. I’m from WA and drink Emu Bitter all the time. It’s weird when you were brought up with a brand name it doesn’t become weird. Imagine if you were from the US and somebody tried to tell you they drank something called Emu Bitter. You’d be certain they were making fun of you.

    Anyway as I said I’d drink a 4X anytime a Queenslander wants to buy me one. And off the the wood at the Brekky Creek hotel (the “wood bar” in one of the nicest bars in the world) I might even pay for a round myself. But VB no way.

    I used to drink VB all the time because that’s what they had on the speaker stacks when Hunters & Collectors came to do gigs at the Old Melbourne. How I managed to like it I’ll never know. What was i thinking?

    Guinness. I flew all the way to Dublin just to see what it was like from its home, to see if it was possible to be actually better than the Australian version. That was money well spent.

  196. The Breakfast Creek Hotel is the only place in the world you can buy XXXX off the wood.
    The reason? Back in the seventies when Castlemaine Perkins was phasing out wooden kegs the liquor unions threatened to go on strike if the trend wasn’t reversed. The newer metal kegs delivered poorer beer.

    At the time I thought now here is an issue worth striking over. The unions were shocked to find they enjoyed wide public support. For the first time ever. They would go on strike every summer to force a beer drought every holidays at peak demand.

    But management and labour reached a compromise. The phase out was completed on the understanding that the Brekky Creek would receive wooden kegs forever. And only the Brekky Creek. Why? The Brekky Creek was the closest hotel to the headquarters of the Trades and Labour Council and was the unofficial headquarters of the state ALP.

  197. Q. What time is it when the discussion turns to the relative merits of beer?

    A. Time Tim provided something else to talk about.

    Fondly I remember my Sydneysider days, and schooners of Tooheys Old at the corner pub.
    Later, 15 years ago, I was flat broke and living in Melbourne and used to drink some el cheapo Liquorland brew called Penneys Bitter, just for the high of it.  The same stuff was later called Tasman, I think.  Truly disgusting, but of course quite tolerable after the fourth or fifth.  Possibly thanks to this inglorious, undiscerning, drunken past I nowadays find VB tasty enough.  Besides, 3 million bogans can’t be wrong…

  227. Maybe tim is applying the work ethics of another unnamed site(cough .webdiary.cough) and waiting for us to start posting RWDB stuff.

  228. SomeOSeppo #219,

    So an Aussie is DRIVING from the ‘east coast’ to visit Lileks in MSP.  All the weather reports I saw today called for snow all over the place with multiple inches in Wisconsin and Illinois and multiple feet in the ‘lake effect’ areas.  Blair should have worries other than lutefisk (but then I only know what lutefisk is from Iowahawk—causes riots or something).

  229. Well, gee whiz.  While Tim is frollicking with Lileks and gnat, we’re all just standing around, bringing up our own subjects.  These include:

    — the best brands of Australian bitter
    — an ute which is thankfully not an American Indian
    —an esky, which is a very confused name for what everybody else in the Anglo world knows to be a coooooooler
    —a Tardis is a phone booth, I think
    —and the main subject for this thread, many creative and imaginative chimplike names for President Bush

    The only question I have at the moment is just what will SDD, kae, McEnroe and the rest do when Tim walks back into his home?  What will you say when he asks about:
    —the pigsty decor?
    —the odor from the barbie?
    —the burnt out car on the street?
    —the beer, or lack thereof?

    And most importantly, the whereabouts of Tim’s cask of one of a kind (let’s repeat that, one of a kind) Sumerian mead, stolen from the storeroom of Sargon I himself?

    At the very least, we can expect names to be ferreted out and the space lasers to be activated.  Ironically your only hope is to stay holed up in Tim’s house.  He probably would be hesitant to laser beam his own abode.  Probably.

  230. Anyone else see the “black books” episode where Manny and co try to remake a vintage bottle of wine out of $5 cheap plonk and some additives??
    Could be time to give it a try, after all what are they going to compare the taste with?
    Better than a space laser set on “slow cook” anyway.

  231. Shit didn’t think of that. I thought we’d all be safe in the billiard room. Maybe we can use the dog as a hostage?

  232. Ah.  Here’s the lowdown on the lutefisk.

    Worries.  Plus, Blair’s type drives on the wrong side of the road, if I remember my Fremantle experience correctly.

    best episode ever! I wish they made more or played the reruns on the abc, one of the few great pommy comedies out there…

  235. slightly more O/T

    Futurama is coming out this month the complete boxed set.

    #231 and I thought the dog had an unfortunate accident… but Tim doesn’t know that, does he?

    #229
    The Tardis, Dr Who’s time machine, is disguised as a Polic Call Box (yeah, OK, it’s a phone box, but for the Bobbys only).

    Is a pommie comedy a pommedy?

  237. Did you see the bit on the Breakfast Creek Hotel site about the hotel being bought by ALH? That’d be the same ALH that was then taken over by CUB which then changed its name to Fosters to cover the tracks?

    The same Fosters, you guessed it,that are the brewers of Victoria Bitter! And Castlemaine Perkins, the brewers of XXXX, has been taken over by, can you believe it, a New Zealand company whose name I refuse to mention! I suppose they’re going to shoot the Tsar next.

    That’s it. You can never go back home.

  241. The lawyers for ALH didn’t do their homework very well on the sale- the ‘Creek has one of the most prominent XXXX neon signs atop it’s main tower, and after the sale went through CUB went to pull down said sign and replace it with a Carlton themed one, only to be informed by the National Trust that it was the oldest existant neon sign in Brisbane, and under a preservation order. 3 and a half million beer vouchers to advertise the opposition’s product- what a pack of maroons.

  243. Uh oh:

    Fresh Roasted Tim.

    Turn left, Tim, turn left! Before it’s too late! I promise not to roast you—my friends are feeding me tomorrow, so I won’t be hungry until Monday.

  245. But remember, Tim, a left turn in the U.S. isn’t like a left turn Down Under. Tim, are you listening? You don’t just look to your right and go. OK? Tim? Tim?

  246. The dog’s dead, Geoff.  And you guys barbied Tim’s ute.  And we drank all his booze.  There’s nothing left to hold hostage.

    But, as Andrea noted, if he makes it all the way to Minnesota, we may not have to worry about it.

  248. We could always threaten to cut the dog’s head off.

  249. Update: Tim survived the Nightmare Before Thanksgiving Monster Storm, and should be here within half an hour. (Nine thirty Central time.) I believe he will be thirsty. I have laid in a jeraboam or two.
