Jean Paul Sartre and Scott Morrison: peas in a pod?

A book club in Sydney’s Inner West has lauded Scott Morrison as a savant following the Minister’s comments on the seminal philosophical work of Jean Paul Sartre, ’Being and Nothingness’.

The Minister for Border Protection and Immigration was in Newtown this week with NSW Premier Mike Baird, jointly unveiling a new childcare centre which will double as a border protection facility enabling toddlers to stop the boats via remote controlled drones, when he made the comments regarding the phenomena of being and nothingness which jointly constitute the human condition.

Of Vices and Newspaper Men

It’s easy to satirise The Daily Telegraph. The News Corp paper has ceased any pretence of fairness or balance. Screaming headlines during the 2013 election – like the notorious “Kick this mob out”, “Does this guy ever shut up”, and the priceless, and pretty weird, “Hair brained; A fly takes a liking to Kevin Rudd’s head yesterday” – show how flippantly Murdoch and many of his editors wield the political axe.

The lady doth bake very much.

The lady doth bake very much.

Joining us for her regular dessert column is glass ceiling smasher and crazy old deadwood, Bronwyn Bishop. This week, the outspoken monarchist, evidence ignorer and racist lady teaches us how to make her famed Cheesecake Of No Confidence.

Step 1.

Take your COMCAR to your nearest David Jones Food Hall for a quick grocery shop. When cooking, I try to use the best ingredients available, so I always look for brands that have been awarded a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty The Queen. For the biscuit base, you will need some royally endorsed bickies, which can only mean Walkers Shortbread. $24.95 a tin may seem expensive, but it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.
