Dictionary Meanings of 'Shonks' and 'Shysters'.

Well, I am not happy with the treatment that has been dealt to me over my life time. Thankfully, I am very smart. I think most people who have been mis-treated as I end up in prison. The parasites in the police force, are so readily caught by this 'flytrap'. Those gutless parasite police like Image
Henri Elias Rantala target such people.

Other gutless parasite pigs targeted me in the 1980's in Townsville when I was the Accountant Tax-Agent principal of of Image in Townsvillle. They tried targeting me. Of course, they were alerted to me by the corrupt 'solicitor' [soon to be struck off for good] mate of the corrupt police, Terence Joseph Mellifont. He perjured himself to the Fitzgerald Inquiry to protect his corrupt police 'mates'; see Mellifont v Attorney-General (Qld) [1991] HCA 53; (1991) 173 CLR 289 (12 December 1991) HIGH COURT OF AUSTRALIA.

Wouldn't it have been useful to me if I could have been warned of the likes of Mellifont and Spender? What could be a presage to that criminal conduct"? What 'taught' them to be that way? Maybe it was their PARENTS. Similarily, the offstpring of criminals [especially those who have escaped being brought to account - like Mellifont [See also Terence Joseph Mellifont. In the last paragraph on page 3 of this article, where I use the pseudonym of 'Haig' to refer to myself, I set out how Mellifont defrauded me in 1974.] and Jeffrey Ernest John Spender] are likely to be influenced into following a criminal life, especially when the criminal parents have escaped being brought to account - like Mellifont and Spender. Associates and spouses of such are likely to be 'tarred with the same brush'. Isn't if fortunate that Mellifont had a few kids? Hey Terry and Jeff, you were real smart back in 1974 to defraud and cheat me like that, weren't you? You didn't know about the Internet then, did you? It will improve, too. It is growing exponentially. [You would know what 'exponentially' means hey Jeff?] What's there, stays there [so many copies are kept around the world]. The Internet is the NEW FRONTIER.

Dictionary Meanings of 'Shonks' and 'Shysters'.
These are Australian colloquialisms. Might I say, firstly, that I use idioms and colloquial speech very seldom This is because I have studied a number of languages and had to translate between them. It is very difficult for me to understand colloquial expressions in foreign languages when I have translated them into English. Over my time I have often written and spoken in English to people who have English as a Second Language. I am better understood if I use no idioms or colloquialisms. The purpose of my speaking or writing is to be understood.

I quote from the Macquarie Dictionary, published by The Macquarie Library Pty Ltd., The Macquarie Dictionary, Macquarie University, New South Wales 2109, Australia. It is called, "The National Dictionary". It is referenced as the first "Australian Dictionary".

"Shonks" can be understood as the noun reference to persons who are "shonky". The Macquarie Dictionary gives the following:

'shonky' / adj. Colloq. 1. of dubious integrity or honesty. 2.mechanically unreliable.

'shyster' n. 1. one who gets along by petty, sharp practices. 2. a lawyer who uses unprofessional or questionable methods. [apparently alteration of Scheuster, an unscrupulous 19th C New York lawyer; perhaps influenced by G (for German) Scheisser, from scheissen SHIT]

The Colloquial phrase of "Shonks and Shysters" is known in Australia. If you do a Google search of "Shonks and Shysters" in Quotes, you will find the majority are related to my sites, but you will see a few others where this is an understood phrase, in Australia. It is also seen that the phrase has been used in the Australian Parliament, and is recorded in the official Hansard.
