The expert quoted in that article seems to always think Australia is doing a crap job on this ....

June 4, 2012 - Former ambassador to China Geoff Raby has warned the relationship with the Asian giant is in a "deep existential dilemma", accusing Kevin Rudd of breaching Chinese "trust and respect".
Also interesting.

Are you suggesting that being Trump's reliable echo in the Pacific, proclaiming daily that the Chinese are hacking our computers and that their donations are deeply suspect (especially when given to Labor politicians), is an improvement on Rudd's outburst?
Not at all. But I'd say the former ambassador has an axe to grind - ie. that nobody from any party can do it as well as he did. After all, he has a consulting business to market on this very speciality.
Didn't think so.

Swan is posturing but this should be good.
The BCA is planning on running a big media campaign to convince us Turnbull's tax give away to very big business is in all our best interests.
Things must have changed since when they recently failed to commit to do anything but pocket the extra money.

Couple of observations about The Insiders this morning.
They are now going a long way to avoid criticism by the right of bias.
I wonder if Barrie got a talking to after recently eviscerating that dope O' Dwyer.
The ABC is cowed by this Government.
The two "gentlemen" on the panel do not like Lenore Taylor one little bit.

Just taking the p!$$

I see on FB that Veebass has taken delivery of his new Prado today, which is far more exciting than post-Budget analysis

Yep- three hour drive each way.

Budget- meh...same old, same old. Heard about the citizenship stuff on the way out. Bring on the full election!

Prado is very nice!

Someone told Hanson she needs to do this so she can be a good Liberal and blame Shorten when she hands the Coalition her preferences.

She still doesn't have it clear whether she leads a protest party or not.

One Nation constantly plays on their paranoid, conspiracy line that both major Parties are really the same and just tools of the UN, Agenda 21, Lima Accord etc. to pickup all the right wing wack jobs. Then they vote solidly with the Coalition and now they are preparing to do a preference deal. Some protest party.

Some interesting modelling in this article.

All pretty obvious really. It always amazes me how the Libs get the Nats to screw over their core electorates so consistently.

No wonder there is such a market for One Nation's drivel in those electorates.

Speaks to the priorities of this government.

My understanding is that the money committed exceeds the new money committed to Sexual Assault Services and Prevention

When is the last time someone died from not having access to a statue of a long dead British sailor?.

Hanson...El Presidente for life.
Get's to pick her successor- just what we need in a democracy. No wonder she is so popular with the Alt Right.

Turnbull on a loser here.
He wants the courts to overturn the Qld political donation laws.
Annastacia took this policy to the last two elections (after Newman had raised the disclosure limit)- and won. She also has had the laws upheld by the courts after LNP court challenge.

You may or may not get mugged by Murdoch trying to access this story.
