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

Perhaps they could make the banks pay for the Royal Commission as well as the victim's compensation scheme Labor has called for, rather than give them $14 B more of our money. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/apr/23/banking-royal-commission-labor-asks-turnbull-for-compensation-scheme?...

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

Joyce is still good for a laugh. Barnaby Joyce has blamed his split with wife Natalie on long separations, and says partners should be permitted to work in political offices if they have the qualifications, and they want to. That is, nothing to do with him. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news...

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

All that media training to iron out his quirks just makes him look more shifty. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/apr/23/coalition-narrows-gap-newspoll-government-31st-loss That and being told he is shifty all the time. Turnbull tries his best for several years to protect the 4 big ba...

Re: A Big Favour In Melbourne

Thanks for the offers of help, guys. You are all great, as always- much appreciated.

The owner is an Ozbasser, as it turns out, so I don't need the help. I am in communication with him at present.

Re: Fender Jazz pickup cover over the bridge??

But then I wondered whether the Jazz bass pickup cover that covers the neck pickup could be placed over the bridge so that you could easily slip foam between the cover and the strings as needed. Anyone tried this?? I don't have a pickup cover to experiment with. OK. I have had a bit of a play aroun...

He's on a roll today. Channelling his inner Hockey.

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

This one includes a number of Morrison's best reasons why a royal commission into banks was a bad idea. He really does look a tool. Just in time for his big speech in May. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/does-royal-commission-turncoat-scott-morrison-really-think-the-public-is-so-dim-20180420...
