Something very amusing happened last week. So Scomo is in trouble for shafting the Europeans and going with AUUKUS. Can’t really blame him to be honest, as the French deal was probably a bit of a dud, but the French response was expected too.
But then something very unusual happened.
Ok – so what does this mean. While somewhat amusing, clearly you came here wondering why for the love of god does yours truly give a damn about Merkel getting pecked?
The Zee News Bureau is from India and the author is a moron. As in not willfully stupid, but ignorant to the point where they can only do harm. No unlike the local Australian media, but hey ho.
So this image is similar, but is from AP, so we know the important bits of information will be present. Because AP pays better and is far more prestigious than Zee News.
The point is that these are not parrots, but rather Australian Lorikeets. Basically Merkel is telling off Scomo for biting the hand that feeds him, and there will be a price to pay.
Not content with the bird feed on offer, one of the rainbow lorikeets took a peck at the long-time German leader’s hand, prompting a theatrical scream from Merkel.Angela Merkel pecked by parrot during visit to German bird park (today.com)
~~Why is Scomo is trouble?~~
Obviously whatever the French were being paid for is larger than just subs, and this was some kind of European project.
This also explains the French over reaction, what with recalling ambassadors and all. Macron is probably putting on his best show of being wronged, because otherwise his boss (Merkel) is going to make him pay for the losses.
Very interesting comms, if anyone knows what is going on I’d love to hear it…
Another decent question is why the town of Marlow, Germany – Wikipedia? Its a nowhere town with barely a stub in Wikipedia.
Again I don’t know the answer, but below is a pic of its arms. Do you see anything exciting?
