    Do we actually need a GG and state governors?

    For ever more they’ll be useful patsies for when Qantas engineers need a bit more time to get the rubber band fully wound up.

    There were no Balrogs in the caves, BoN – but Ljubljana had dragons. In fact, the dragon is a symbol of the city.

    A beautiful city – recommend a visit. Yet another one built on the remains of a Roman settlement. Tomorrow I’ll be in York, where both Romans and Vikings feature prominently in the history of the city.

    Do we actually need a GG and state governors?
    Would it not be possible to have any real powers held by the GG exercised by the High Court, sitting as a Constitutional Court on the rare occasions it is required.
    Swearing in of ministers could be done by the Chief Justice.
    All the assorted ribbon cutting and lamington drive stuff could be assigned to junior ministers.

    GG/presidents, appointed by the PM/Premiers (or by a joint sitting of both houses where there are 2 houses, or popularly elected, the most dangerous alternative) add an extra check and balance. Under the constitution the current GG has some definite powers and reserve powers. If you get rid of the GG and involve the court the separation of powers gets diluted.

    The pro republicans are motivated by revenge for what happened to comrade whitlam or in the case of the likes of pirate pete, turdball etc, ego.

    We have a system that works. More or less.

    It seems to be increasingly obvious in US politics that there is in fact a “deep state” hidden in the shadows.

    Biden and Fetterwoman are extreme examples, but there are plenty more. “The Squad” and the rest of them.

    These people are merely “sprukiers”. They are the dudes standing out the front of the strip club enticing people in. Or in the bookmaking industry, the bagman calling out “best odds” and “about to jump”.

    They aren’t running the business, they are the employees.

    Gorton I believe was born in Melbourne but he did serve Kerang as shire president after World War 2.

    Gorton was running the family property when World War Two broke out.

    Dressed in “work clobber,” he went into a Royal Australian Air Force to volunteer for aircrew.

    An immaculately “turned out” R.A.A.F. officer surveyed the unkempt figure. “We prefer candidates for aircrew to have some academic qualifications.”

    Gorton returned the gaze. “Master of Arts from Oxford good enough?”

    Oh, and for all the kudo’s Goof Whitlam later received, it was John Gorton who began the withdrawal of the Australian Forces from Vietnam.

    Go get the clearance

    Nobody is preventing you from obtaining a clearance.
    After all, it is you who so badly wants it.

    I thought you’d dug yourself a pretty deep hole when you chickened out of a serious bet.
    Turns out you can dig deeper.

    Seek help dude. Seek professional intervention, before you blow a gasket old man.

    Tell you what Driller. Obtain a clearance from the blog owner that I can publish private information about you and I’m more than happy to show you.

    That way you won’t be hiding and you won’t be able to peddle dishonest crap about yourself every again.

    Even better, why don’t you just go away to another Blog and give us all a rest. You are like a Broken Record. Boring, boring, boring. And vote for Desperate Dan in Stasi Victoria…………………..

    You’re beginning to sound intimidated.

    Delusion watch in real time.

    Was it my name that gave me away? (Salvatore Stupid) you looked me up in the white pages?

    Yes.

    Stop repeating the same question and go get the clearance. Go!

    Cultures and food is always an interesting subject. Both parts being endlessly fascinating.

    I ate truffle pasta again last night. I could smell the glorious waft as it came from the kitchen.

    In the market yesterday the small stalls had a wealth of different types of mushrooms, from the beautiful golden chantarelles to meaty porcini and some enormous field caps. There were some I’ve never seen before.

    Salvatore is my second name, dickhead. You’ve no idea of my first name of my surname (they’re both far more unpronounceable).

    Lay out your methodology for knowing how I do not own the pub. Start with… er.. how about the … starting point.

    ………GO!

    There’s nothing to dig and there was no serious bet. You lied.

    Driller, you don’t own a pub. It’s been a lie for years.

    You want this “clearance”, you’ll have to grow a dick & balls and contact Dover yourself.
    You do not require Dover’s blessing to tell how you know personal information about me.

    I bet you will, Leadership. You pretty much said a similar thing earlier this immediately after new year.

    Can you take Driller and Turtlehead with you? Both would add a ton of value to the Lollipop cat.

    Stop making shit up. I don’t have confidential financial information about you. No-one needs to have your confidential information to know you’re publess.

    Calm down. Of course I would need a clearance because you’re more than aware that would be doxing otherwise. Stop trying to send us on a squirrel chase. I’m not being coy.

    The info of course could be wrong as it was told to me.

    You say your middle name is Salvatore, but in the past you’ve told us it was a made up name. Also, you’ve often said your heritage is British Isles. Forgive me, but I didn’t realize salvatore was a popular Anglo name. You’re making shit up as you go along.

    1. You once told us it was made up and someone picked you up of the fact that you had confused Salvatore with you previous blog name, steve. You thought Salvatore was the Italian equivalent of Steve. You fuckwit.

    2. You’ve also described hating people of an Italian background.

    3. You’ve said you’re Anglo and Salvatore isn’t exactly a popular Anglo name, you big idiot.
