Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

It will be interesting to see where federal Labor finally come down on the NEG. Plenty of water to flow under the bridge yet.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Fraser Anning made his maiden speech to the Senate a few days ago. It caused a furore but will have gladdened the hearts of those who want a racist/ religious basis to our immigration policy. Mr Anning got there in very interesting way. He became the replacement Qld One Nation Senator for Malcolm Ro...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Malcolm can talk about the politics of envy and social climbing, would be if they could be sycophants all he wants, when the topic is his money. This is story below is so Turnbull. The topic is not his money, it is ours. From the woman who got Barnaby, Ms Markson: The Great Barrier Reef Foundation w...

Ridiculously priced. Last one I saw go was around $2K.

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

More interesting public administration from Turnbull. This has come to light following Reefgate. A little-known government agency will move from focusing on financing Australian business exports such as wine, mining and obscure products such as "stoned crystals," sheep placenta and kangaroo essence,...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

I thought I had seen a top class hypocrite performance when Turnbull declared Shorten had to come clean about what he knew about Ms Husar and when he knew it. He actually did that with a straight face. (Don't mention Barnaby or Cash.) Obviously, people didn't buy it- Turnbull slipped in the Newpoll-...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

This is worth a read. Dismiss it as the bile of an ex Labor PM who got stiffed by Malcolm, if you wish. Your loss. I have never been a Rudd fan. People would know that here. Much more a Gillard guy. I saw Rudd speak at a Party dinner a fortnight ago. I thought long and hard about going, so deep is m...

Re: Opting out of MyHealthRecord scheme by 15th October

3. the government giving your private file to a newspaper if you criticise them (has so far happened with centrelink/disability files, but it's the same govenrment, so no reason to think it won't happen with the health records the minister was on every radio station shamelessly lying about the laws...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Seems Turnbull has form in handing out our money without due process. Interesting ingredients in his previous largesse- ignore advise, Murdoch, Russian rain making technology (can't make this stuff up!). Very worrying for Turnbull- Barrie Cassidy is on the case now and may well find more of this cra...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Here's a good one. Finance press has ignored the worst retail figures on record obviously so as not to draw attention to the real problem. Ever wondered why the used bass gear market is tough? Essentially because lower and middle income earners have less disposable after an extended period of wage s...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

We were discussing why Turnbull handed half a billion of our dollars to a "charity" without any due process. Well it seems The Australian of all papers may have the answer. Goldman Sachs and Lucy Turnbull connections. Maybe Rupert has correctly decided Turnbull can't win the next election and needs ...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

Something on the NEG discussions today. Why would you agree to something that the Federal Coalition hasn't internally agreed upon? http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-10/no-guarantee-for-the-governments-national-energy-guarantee/10094920 I found this interesting reading. https://reneweconomy.com.au/...

Re: Political Coverage By the Media in Our Country - PART TWO

doubtful mechanisms No, I wasn't saying you did say that - I was trying to work out if there was more to the story - eg, what motivations are there. I don't know what Turnbull's motivations are either and don't really care. What he has done is wrong to the point it should cost him his job and why h...
