All Over Town

FIRST they were in the City Square. Then they flirted with the Edinburgh Gardens before settling for a spell in the Treasury Gardens. Now, like an eruption of boils, the Occupiers' latest digs are being lanced and cleaned.

The protesters are whining but must be secretly relieved at the timing of the operation.Booted early in the day, the campers will still have time to get home, have a shower and report to their jobs.

    Boadicea was routed Prof - but got her page in history.
    Maybe some of these know there is a problem with a completely floated "dollar" but can't quite articulate it or suggest any alternative.???

  2. Trioli and that other morning dicky bird on the ABC's 24 Hour Opinion Channel, were put about this morning; because, during the previous eviction, the collective blight, was "roughly handled." A solemn, knowing pause ensued.

    What then of the citizens of Homs in Syria? Because the ABC is so anxious to appease in matters Muslim, I guess those hapless protestors are being treated with kid gloves.

    Trioli needs to get out more often.


  4. Perhaps the lefty Canberra. Mob could recruit them for the new carbon cops to re known as the Karbon Guardians Bureau, or KGB ( Aust) ?

    So Boudicca objected to the floating denarius Phil? Well, here we are again replaying the Life of Brian. What did the Romans ever do for us? Naive is too gentle a term for the Occupy crowd. Try dimwit or stupid. Any musings they might have on a floating dollar would resemble a floating turd. In a global context, from the state of their leavings, unrestrained faecal exuberance seems to have been their main historical and economic legacy.

  6. They demand the end of capitalism, then seem outraged that anyone opposes them.

    I am more scared of the glint in their eyes than anything else, these people would gladly slam a gulag door.

  7. As sombody once said: "We'll lay aboot ye."

  8. This off the topic but..

    RE Shakespeare
    Chris Brand has revisited a piece on Shakespeare that was published in 1998. As I recall you (Bunyip) were effectively arguing on the basis of crystallized intelligence (i.e. Shakespeare must have lacked it). Some respondents argued on the basis of fluid intelligence that it was possible Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare.

    Anyway, Brand, an expert on both form of g, backs Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford.

    Here's the link.
