  1. Thank you.
    Thank you for exposing the truth about our political ‘leaders’ in Canberra and beyond.
    We do not have a government in Canberra: we have a mafia.

    • Andrew The Mafia would deal fairly, and do a far better job.Something that, if you look back throughout time, you will find the Australian government has never done. The continued oppression of the people, of small business, and the thumb-screw system itself is evidence of this.

  2. Thanks for that excellent and thorough account. Most of us following public affairs have been appalled by the uniformity of Press Gallery reporting, or as some have called it stenography of LNP briefings. In particular a type of self-censorship which sets in, and saw Tony Abbott get a free pass on the most absurd assertions and lies for the best part of 7 years. It was little wonder that the LNP were so unprepared for government when it became clear that they had no real policy plans for government, at least none they were prepared to share with voters. It is now clear, as most of us had suspected, that the all-prevailing views of Rupert Murdoch have dominated.and still do, simply because of the sheer bullying of the remainder of non-Murdoch reporters.

      Murdoch’s bullies slink away into misty retirement. Editors who signed off on defamatory reporting hide away like Murdoch himself in hope of never being dragged under light into the arena but like everything else in life, the inevitable is the inevitable.

      Skittles 1 – 9: was the bowling over of Murdoch’s body of shit-kickers (Fitzgerald Inquiry Qld which was, sadly the corrupt investigating the corrupt to save it’s own ‘head’) which were sent flying

      Skittle 10: (inevitable): the digging out of Murdoch and his bully boys (government officials/politicians, media, police) who ran for cover and escaped and are yet to be held to account, and who continue to stomp on, harm and are responsible for, the ongoing death and destruction of the people.

  3. After reading this how about the fact that is diligently ignored by all media that the LNP government was not legally elected. Is in fact an illegal government still and passing legislation, selling off the country etc willy nilly and yet no one is doing anything to stop it!

  4. Thank you for your brilliant ferreting skills and courage in making this sordid tale of Barnyard’s corruption and sexual misconduct available, while the gutless msm covered it up.
    Seems like the entire rotten IPA/Liars house if cards is finally collapsing. The sooner the better, imo.
    Legislation to establish a federal ICAC should be one of the first acts of an incoming (Labor) government, followed by Canadian style media ownership and truth in news reporting legislation to put paid to the ghastly wizened foreigner’s corrupt influence in this country. Then establishing an INDEPENDENT RC into banking.
    There will be so much work to rid this country of the anti-worker (ABCC), anti welfare recipient legislation & other IPA/Liars corrupt legislation.
    Looking forward to Beetroot Barnyard falling on his sword.

    • I thought the same about my father, who was so fat he looked like he was going to explode. But the female dog who chased him for 3 years with dirty love letters didn’t seem to care about how fat he was or the impact she would have on his family. She must have thought being the wife of a diplomat would far out way the difficulty of having sex with a fat man who looked like he was having triplets. I’ve met so many of these typical government and political parasites over the years and I can tell you they don’t care one iota for their families, it is all about, me, me and me. How stupid of us to vote such selfish parasites in and expect them to care about strangers they don’t even know. BAA! BAA!

  5. This is the man who wanted to deny his 4 daughters and all of our daughters ,a vaccination that could save their lives.Because somehow,lessening the chances of dying horribly of cervical cancer ,will suddenly give them “a Licence To Be Promiscuous”…. But what he was doing with a much younger ,married subordinate, behind his wife of 24 years back is “No One Else’s Business”..
    Wrong.
    At the same time that he was ,extolling the “sacred” values of Heterosexual marriage, as a reason that marriage equality should not be legalized ,he was “bonking” that staff member.
    We can only imagine what would be said if say,Tanya Pilbersek got “knocked up” to a much younger married staffer and abandoned her family to “shack up” with him?!….the LNP and their cronies , would be screaming for blood!

    And obviously,Matt Canavan’s “deep Christian beliefs” only runs so deep. He refers to the National Party as “a Real Family Party”…But is obviously happy to turn a blind eye ,to enable his former boss to continue his elicit affair behind the backs of his “Real Family”.

    Sam Dastiari was kicked out because a “donor” paid a $1500 bill for him….Barney and his “Baby-Mumma” are living rent free ,to the tune of $18,000,and have been for months in a house owned by a donor(one who’s business is set to benefit from a proposed airport development,backed by Barny) …Where’s the outrange?

    And let’s not forget that their relationship was well and truly on (she was already pregnant) at the time of the New England by election…Yet,not a whisper from the main stream “media”…
    Would his traditionally conservative voters still have voted for an adulterer,who abandoned his wife and children ,in favor of the mistress expecting his “Love Child”? We can only guess at the answer,because ,like the rest of us ,they were not allowed to know ,until it was all a done deal.

    …Then there is the luxury holiday,in December,when he spent Christmas with his partner/mistress in Queensland ,why was he able to claim it as part of his parliamentary “entitlements”.

    And now it turns out Turnbull knew all of this,the entire time.
    I guess desperately clinging ,to the paper thin majority it parliament is more important truth or integrity for him.

    It’s time for heads to roll,starting with the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister and working down from there.
    But no doubt Malcolm Turnbull will attempt to gloss over everything as usual ,and allow this morally corrupt moron to make decisions on our behalf ..
    Gotta love the moral vacuum that is the LNP.

      • You hit the nail on the head. SHEEP! and that’s the problem The sheep keep voting theses self serving parasites back in. If they don’t care about their own families, they certainly don’t care about the rest of Australia

  6. I am one of many thousands of readers so in need of investigative journalism. Please keep it up. I suspect there is a lot more out there which slips past into the ether.

    • Marie,

      Ditto! Real investigative journalism is the missing link. Let’s not forget those unseen people who sit at their computers in their corners of the world tirelessly disseminate the articles for others to read. They’re doing their bit too.

      Thanks to so many people. None to mainstream media.

  7. What an amazing piece of journalism! Nowhere in MSM fake news would you get anything other than “Mr Joyce’s personal life should be private and we should respect his rights”. It’s been pretty obvious from his demeanour, that he is and always has been a beer-swilling, uncouth yob. His behaviour and obviously his personal standards are despicable.

    • Townsend.

      Spot on brilliant.
      They’re public donkeys in a public place living iff the public purse so the public has every right to know when they all piss.

      The public pays. Every step of the way.

      His rights? While the strip away ours?

  8. I hope that your allegations about Beetrooter having an affair with Lobbyist are 100% accurate. If so you”ll have a fan in me for life. My god she writes a lot of corporate-speak doesn’t she. Like this Mission Statement rubbish… Fuck me.

  9. This is the most informative piece of journalism i have seen in a long time and happily shared. I truly hope articles like this will finally hand back to the people TRUTH AND JUSTICE in the running of this country. Even Rupert could not stop this and hence gave the nod in a pathetic attempt at maintaining some credibility for his behemoth which crumbles further and further every day..The worm is finally beginning to turn back in favor of the people…It is no longer business as usual for the two and a half party machine…Go you good thing.

    • Serken you broke this story! Brilliant job and love your work. Look forward to reading more on the corruption within this government. Have you ever delved into the connection between Turnbull’s deliberate destruction of our NBN and the Murdochs?

  10. An absolute disgraceful hypoctrite and one can use the old fashioned word CAD . He can not effectively carry out his day job until he sorts his personal life !! If there is one bit of honour left in him he needs to step aside as leader at least

  11. Who knows he might be able to do a Will Farrell and attract the horny voter! Hang on a minute this is Australia…This is displaying the classic ‘do as I say not what I do’ which is a shame as I kinda thought he was one of the good guys…..I must admit I laughed my self-stupid today over this and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment! Good on you TCNW!

  12. IT MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH THAT SO MANY HIGH PROFILE PEOPLE THINK THEY HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE DISCISIONS THAT AFFECT OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES I HAVE A STORY TO TELL AND I HAVE DOCUMENTATION TO BACK IT UP ..I WAS DOING MORE RESEARCH ON THIS LOBBYIST..WHEN I CAME ACROSS THIS NEWS …AND ITS A CASE OF MY STOLEN ID …CENTRELINK .GOLDEN CASKET. TAB ACCOUNT ..AND NAB .AND SO MANY MORE EVEN POLICE SPELLING MY NAME ..FOR YEARS MY HUSBAND AND I WERE INVOLVED WITH THE RACING INDUSTRY…I THINK NOW IT IS ALL ABOUT TO COME OUT …THE FRAUDSTERS WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH IT..

  13. Brilliant job Serkan. You’re exposing corruption and legacy media complicity and cowardice almost singlehanded. Have you considered… WikiLeaks?

  14. And look how Barnaby has been ‘rewarded’. He’s now up there in his temporary leadership station demanding respect?

    This is what happens. The sanctions of government REWARD their own with promotions etc. Or a change in portfolio etc Time and time again.

Have Your Say
