Inspired by a genuine desire to properly acknowledge and honour the mentors and minions who do the most to enable Aussie Coal Diggers’ uniquely entitled ‘way of life’, as well as to warn ordinary citizens of grave dangers to safety and security from extremist-alarmist-elitist-warmists, inner city avocado people and Solar Panelista Revolutionaries, Digging Deeper: Secrets of the Neo-COALonial Movement Unearthed! presented by The Butterfly Club was a politically stunning interactive production like none other.

Billionaire Coal Diggers deserve the very best of everything, including “show quality” political lapdogs! We are beyond giddy with excitement that intellectual powerhouses Tones, Craig, Eric, George & Barnaby are standing up for us! Watch out coal hating greenie socialists!

Climate Guardians stand silently holding their message while police remove their climate justice wing & feather decorations – beautifully presented science based policy advice – from the front facade of Australia’s Minister for the Environment, Josh Frydenberg’s office. The Minister remained inside while a number of his staff came out shouting, and even grabbing one Angel by the arms. Who would be more concerned about artistic stickers than about the grave threats we face from global warming? December 2017

Our poor Josh! We Coal Diggers had to muscle our way past hordes of extremist elitist lowlife greenies just to deliver our holiday political donations.

It’s no wonder he was hiding, December 2017

Whew! Some tough questions at our presser at the Menzies dinner in Melbourne, with our cuddly bestie Minister for Coal Josh Frydenberg! Some commie journalists don’t appear to appreciate that a 100% CET (Coal Energy Target) is essential to maintain our effluence and the flow of donations (chortle!) to the #LNP
