1. Before the year ends newly promoted Senate leader Mathias Cormann and deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop will face off in a bitter showdown over who leads the Liberals into the next election.

Bishop will represent herself as the person who the polls tell us is the most popular Liberal to lead the Government. Cormann will either be in Malcolm Turnbull’s corner if it’s a hostile takedown, or backing Peter Dutton as the conservative alternative to Turnbull if the PM steps aside.

Then again, it is Van Onselen. However, it is obvious there will be ructions within the Lib Party room and between Libs and Nats. Both incompetent and both wanting to blame the other. I guess the Nats will want to keep turdful as Leader since he is so dutifully carrying out his Agreement with the Nats. Bishop as Leader? Christ “Don’t know” rate much higher than JBish!

Once the copper Internet fix is in they will remove him!

The Libs masterfully screwed Australian kids for decades and that is their legacy: before that was the stench of Howard!

Oh yeah, it is New Year's Eve isn't it? :jump

Prepared tomorrow nights dinner - chicken thighs now marinating in crushed garlic cloves, lemon pepper seasoning (a bit lazy), lime zest (tree is loaded), squeeze of lime juice and a good big slurp of Margret River sav blanc semillion. I reckon it will go down a treat :purple

In case I don't make it to midnight..........

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should all acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
And surely you will buy your cup
And surely I'll buy mine
And we'll take a cup o'kindness yet
For auld lang syne
We too have run around the slopes
And picked the daisies fine
We've londoned many weary foot
Since auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
We too have paddled in the stream
From morning sun to night
But the seas between us broad have roared
From auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
We'll take a cup o'kindness yet
For auld langs syne

Happy new year.....in about 4 3/4 hours by my time :jump

And surely you will buy your cup

So they each buy a cup of “kindness”

We too have run around the slopes
And picked the daisies fine
We've londoned many weary foot


and

We too have paddled in the stream
From morning sun to night


So, they knew each other, good friends, spent much time together etc but now:

But the seas between us broad have roared


So I guess it is two friends drinking to each others’ friendship.

Could it be one friend is dead? From battle maybe? Then the dead friend could not “buy a cup” could he?

So not a war/remembrance of war dead even if adopted by the Scottish Guards.
