    It is called “Denial 101″…..As soon as elected the first port of call is to these lectures, the
    “Say Nothing” – “I Know Nothing”, preferably without a Schultz accent otherwise branded as a NaTzi. Forget Bears with small brains it is now Banks with small brains. Pathetic, and they think we can’t see through this BS.

    Like a hood slide, or doing a wheelie, it was thought impossible to look like a dork jumping out of a helicopter. Until now.

    Wonder what the cost to the taxpayer this was?!

      Allyson you can’t think like that. Trying to work out the benefit-cost-ratio of Banksie is going to involve a helluva lot of decimal places.

      Consider it as on-site and on-going training for the Air Force. Would much rather see them clocking up their flying hours doing something like this than just pointless exercises flying around and around with absolutely no point at all. On a lighter note though, I see Banksie wasn’t wearing a parachute though…the chopper could have done a extreme right (what else!) bank and oops out the open door he could have slid amongst all his slime…what a missed opportunity!
