PP boyz Dave and Jeremy eat breakfast

Have you ever hankered to hear PP boyz Dave Gaukroger and Jeremy Sear eat breakfast? Yeah, me too.

In the latest Pure Poison podcast you can not only hear Dave and Jeremy chew, talk while chewing and swallow, you can listen to the ABC's Insiders playing almost intelligibly in the background, Dave's kids playing Wii, Dave cough and almost best of all, Jeremy making excuses for the Greens' extremely poor showing in Saturday's New South Wales election – the best parts of the extended PP podcast are the long periods of silences.

Zero stars out of five – this one is only for die-heard pure Poison fans.

Update Greens candidates are at a loss to explain the swing to the Liberals:
Neither Ms Byrne nor Mr Parker fronted the media to explain why voters defecting from Labor appeared to have voted Liberal rather than for the Greens.
Jeremy knows the answer, however:
Part of prob is also that people think a Labor minority govt could get away with being as corrupt as the Labor majority govt was.
Jeremy underestimates the intelligence of voters.

Judging by his latest picture at PP Jeremy has gone from having no chin to having double chins without an intermediate one-chin stage.

Very impressive.

Also, Jeremy appears to believe that his very presence makes people vote Labor out.

He wants to move to NSW to be in a Labor state.


Oh well it won't be long before he's wanting political asylum in New Zealand. That will raise the average IQ of both nations.

Jeremy has had time to ponder more excuses

1. Changing his tune from the federal election where he advised people to vote Greens and preference ALP. Now the problem is that people don't understand that a vote for Greens is not a vote for Labor.

2. The meeeja didn't help our election campaign and that BDS thing was just a beat up. The Greens candidate simply and innocently 'mispoke'.

3. The Greens are poor

4. NSW is full of right wingers.

It's hard to believe that such a detailed and thoughtful analysis would not have considered that NSW voters have already observed an ALP/Green alliance and have decided they are not so keen on it, particularly Greens lead policies like the carbon tax.

So you spent an hour of your day listening to people you can't stand eat, talk and watch a tv show?

At least it sounds like they had a bit of fun. Whats in it for you? Time to get out a bit more, son.

Jeremy Sear, Barrister, is an idiot.

No one in NSW (with the exception of Bob Ellis) thought that the ALP had any hope of winning the election.

In fact in Marrickville the ALP was distributing pamphlets saying 'Don't throw the baby out with the bath water' because the local MP is a 'progressive' who 'cares about local issues'.

Everyone knew that it did not whether Balmain or Marrickville elected a Green or elected Labour because the Coalition was going to be elected.

Every bit of advertising in these two seats (and there was more than I have ever seen for any election in Australia) centred on the local candidates.

In Balmain, The Greens picked a bloke, with some very odd friends, who used to be marketing manager for a company that sold snake oil 'cures' for impotence but claimed to have had nothing to do with the misleading advertising the company was caught out over. In Marrickville, the Greens picked a lady who thought that trying to mount a boycott of Israeli owned enterprises was the business of the local government and the state government and then lied about it.

Neither Greens candidate had credibility. On the other hand, the Labor politicians were sitting members who appeared to care about local issues and had reasonably good reputations and reasonably progressive views.

I wouldn't have voted for either of them but I know I would have preferred the ALP over the Greens.
