I really hope Turnbull gets referred to the High Court on this breach of Aussieness.

There must be an applicable part of s 44.

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

The Government needs to get back to the energy debate. Ooops! Prof Finkel has just blown Turnbull and Fraudenberg out of the water and endorsed Palaszczuk's program in the middle of an election campaign . Another disaster. http://www.skynews.com.au/news/top-stories/2017/11/20/finkel-backs-labor-s-50...

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

Turnbull has got to be kidding. He has cancelled next week's sitting of the Lower House because he cannot control his own party. What a joke. He should resign now. It is not as if they are over worked. He continues to badly misread the people. Does he seriously think people buy any of his BS? He sta...

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

So is there more happening than this?: Suing for peace is usually initiated by the losing party in an attempt to stave off an unconditional surrender and may sometimes be favorable to the winning nation, as prosecuting a war to a complete or unconditional surrender may be costly. I'm really not up ...

PS the cartoon is great, but I think it is normally called "suing for peace" :)
They are not suing for peace at all. They are actually trying to dictate the terms of their defeat, as the cartoon says. That is the political problem.

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

In case you were wondering where this Government stands in relation to big business. This is code for make bigger donations and come join us in the fight against workers. Oh for an accord and a union movement strong enough to carry it.. http://www.skynews.com.au/news/top-stories/2017/11/20/business-...

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

The notion that "secular" and "non secular" are just handles and they don't cause the "state of marriage" is all very interesting. What causes marriage is not what is on the table to be legislated. We have just spent $100 million on an unpopular, divisive opinion poll about a proposal to change the ...

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

Is it necessary to include section 18 at all? Does the current secular definition of marriage include this? Why now then? Not as far as I understand it. We should only be talking secular marriage. We did not have a $100 million opinion poll on non secular marriage. Those politicians against Marriag...

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

In 6 months time the same people will be wondering why they accidentally enshrined the right to wear a burka in law. :lol: :popcorn: Exactly. Or much more dangerously, the protection of the rantings of some murderous Imam hellbent on the destruction of our society and instructing Muslims that it is...

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

I didn't think Dutton could go lower than his past efforts.

He is now threatening New Zealand if they dare assist our "prisoners" on Manus Is.
Mind you when they die they aren't our responsibility.

What a GRUB!

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

^ 18c is for racial discrimination and so shouldn't be applicable. Sometimes people try to argue that certain religions are races and so nothing would surprise me.. I think I just heard Patterson's Bill looks like going nowhere at present. Hopefully, Turnbull can exercise some degree of control on h...

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

This is interesting. NSW was the State with the lowest "Yes" vote. I would have expected that dubious honour to go to Qld. Just getting one back at those Southerners who delight in pointing out the appallingly high level of support Pauline gets in Qld. Actually the breakup in Qld is interesting fro...
