Tim Holding On?


As you're probably all aware - at least the Victorians amongst us - Tim Holding, State Minister for Water (among other things) has been missing for 2 nights on Mt Feathertop where the temperature has been as low as minus 7 degrees.

I hope he's ok. But I think it's clear what's happened here. Those opposed to the north-south pipeline, or perhaps those opposed to the desal plant, have waited for the opportunity for Tim to take a break in the country, kidnap him and remove his testicles with blunt shears.

A wild conspiracy, or the very clear and obvious truth?

Perhaps we'll never really know. But one thing's for sure, the guy's cold.

Oh good - I was going to blog on this, but had nothing much to say aside from the fact I have met him twice, and both times he impressed me. Yeah yeah, he's a politician, but jeez he had an awesome ability to retain and spout facts. Very smart man... I hope he is okay.

Your conspiracy theory is sound. I've driven up that way and the locals are all fucking weird on that issue... like the anti-flouride psychopaths in Geelong.

They've found him.

He's alive.

Lewd Bob said...

Which just supports my theory. They let him go. Wait for his announcement later today:

"The north-south pipeline will be abandoned immediately."

The old "mountian top revelation" routine. Classic Illuminati/Masonic/Zionist covert op. Nexus Magazine predicted this months ago.

Can someone please explain to me what is so enjoyable about walking up a steep mountain in rugged terrain by yourself in the freezing cold carrying only survival equipment?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Because it's so great when you stop?

I don't know but I wish they'd stop making documentaries about how steep it was and how cold it was and how they died and how they died again

Idiots

Lewd Bob said...

Because it's there.

Fuck off!

My Sunday was spent recovering from a hangover, drinking coffee and laying on the couch watching seson three of 'Dexter'. Hardly productive, but they didn't have to winch me to safety two days later.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I was winched to safety from the beer garden of my local just the other day.

Cath said...

Season three of Dexter... LOVELY! I don't *do* bush-walking. I just don't get it. I can wander for hours in old cities, but the bush - shmeh.... boring. But hey, I wouldn't want to wish bad things on anyone who did choose such activities. Thankfully he has been found - I wonder if he will learn his lesson???

I bet John Della Bosca wishes he was lost on that mountain top.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

He'll certainly be wishing he was lost on a mountain top when Belinda Neil (AKA the Mrs) catches up with him.

Lewd Bob said...

I love the bush. I love traipsing through the desert, wandering through forests, swimming in rivers, gamboling through the fields.

But I don't want to be climbing a mountain. You'd get blisters.

notcatlick said...

Speaking of "wild conspiracies" why did 4 Corners give oxygen to that Ripple Effect nonsense last night?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I was wondering that myself, notcatlick.

I suppose you could argue that it needed to be debunked but people who believe this this sort of guff are hardly going to be watching the BBC.

notcatlick said...

People who watch this guff and are persuaded by it aren't going to be dissuaded by the second half wherein they belatedly debunk the theory. The whole thing was irresponsible.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

It was pretty shoddy.

I notice the Jews got a look in too.

Gosh, they're busy those Jews - they're probably responsible for Tim Holding getting lost.

notcatlick said...

Jews: the vital ingredient in any conspiracy cake.

Melba said...

Season 3 of Dexter? It's out or do you have a dodgy copy?

I have heard talk of Holding being arrogant and arseholey. "I can camp out there in the snow while you folk hunker in this shack" and "I am going to do this on my own, because I am a Real Man's Man."

This talk is from his underlings.

I understand people who climb mountains about the same as I understand people who sail across the oceans in tiny boats for months.

Have just discovered www.surfthechannel.com

It has been a life changing experience.

Perseus said...

Notcatlick... The Age are stealing your gags.

"JOHN Della Bosca, the powerful NSW Labor figure whose interests include bushwalking, according to Who's Who, must wish today he'd gone walking in a blizzard with Tim Holding."

You beat them to this gag by about ten hours. We have witnesses, should you wish to initiate court action.

Hey Golf... where's my date with your sister?

You too Leilani.

Dr. Golf said...

Turns out she's been dating someone for about a month. I made a case for you, but without success.

New guy sounds like a douch.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Quite right, Dr G.

A chain-smoking, country-dwelling, band-playing Texan pirate goth sounds like a much better catch.

Perseus said...

But I have a chainsaw! Chicks dig that. Don't they?

Perseus said...

Oh, and Melba: Yes, season three is out. I got it at JB.

Melba said...

Good. That's one thing on the list then for Fathers' Day purchases.

Along with Season Three of Arrested Development and anything else I, we need to see.

Sure chicks like chainsaws, as long as you keep the cover on.
