Australian leadership challenge in the wind?

Last week Abbott made a speech at the launch of Connor Court’s new book of conservative essays, Making Australia Right. Abbott’s speech, which you can find in full over at Catallaxy Files, set off a chorus of attacks and abuse from his colleagues in parliament. They same politicians who knifed him in the back now consider him to be a bad sport who should just slink away and die.

But Abbott’s speech was concerned with saving the Liberal party as opposed to saving himself. It also was notable for the fact that it lacked a single personal attack, veiled or otherwise, on any of his colleagues who have treated him so shabbily. Now those same colleagues accuse of him of disloyalty and of attempting to undermine Turnbull, the very same actions that Turnbull propagated against Abbott.

The Sunday cooking thread – smoked salmon BBQ style.

It’s Sunday and on this day I love to cook. Scratch that – I like to cook every day because I love to eat well. I’ve been thinking about a cooking thread for a while, a thread to blow off some metaphorical steam from all of the political and masculine stuff. Otherwise it all becomes too heavy. So I hope to do this every Sunday. Feel free to pitch in and share your own Sunday cooking experiences. Okay, enough jabbering, onto it.

It’s all here – links, vids, and zee hawt chick of the week.

And we arrive at another Friday. What an interesting week it has been here on the interwebs of the alt right. As I repose here in my pleated dressing gown on another wintery morning in the Melbourne summer that never was, it occurs to me that despite all of the interesting goings-on I really care not one whit, and as long as I have a glass of something good, a cigar that is noble, a home that is warm, and a wife that is obedient, then I have all that is good in the world. What joy.

Oh, who am I kidding. I care, baby, I care. On to the links and the resident hawtness.

Never say you’re sorry and never offer your resignation.

I have spoken at length before on the subject of why the modern man should never apologise. But now I need to add an addendum to that and stipulate that the modern man should never offer his resignation either. Two cases this week demonstrate this in action. The first I am sure that you’re all aware of – Milo offering his resignation to Brietbart and it being accepted.

I bet you a bag of steaming dicks that Milo never expected his offer to be accepted. I am sure that Milo considered his offer to be in good faith and thus going towards proving his innocence on the charges that had been leveled against him by the baying mob. It is extremely rare for a guilty man to offer his resignation because he knows that it will be accepted. But men who are not guilty and rather innocent in the ways of the world fall into the mistake of thinking that their noble gesture will be reciprocated when in fact it just offers a bunch of weaklings an easy way out of a tricky situation.
