^ And now we are paying for Fraser Anning to attend Neo Nazi rallies.

"Representing his constituents"- 19 people voted for Fraser as a ONP candidate. (Yes 19 votes- https://results.aec.gov.au/20499/Websit ... 99-QLD.htm )
After Malcolm Roberts (the climate genius) imploded, Anning was put in as a replacement and promptly left the Party that he got 19 votes for. Give me a break.

Some information about the status of the New Zealand government's project to provide ultra fast broadband to it's people. The comparison with Australia's woeful NBN is inescapable. This generational failure by the Abbott/ Turnbull/ Morrison government alone should be enough to cost them government.
This is one of the reasons the Coalition is always happy for public debate to focus on the divisive micro issues that it has.

A Dutton stuff up? One has to wonder whether this was discussed with the PM and or the Foreign Minister. If it wasn't, why wasn't it? Clearly Fiji was not consulted.

Massive fish kill in western NSW.

I am seeing reports that locals are blaming the NSW State, Federal Government and big cotton for this disaster.

We need a Royal Commission to get to the bottom of this.

This appears really serious. What chance of rectifying this when both the Coalition governments involved are simply saying it is the drought?

We don't need a royal commission, we already know what the problems are.

We need to vote this government out of power. That's the only way this is going to stop. If we don't, they'll simply drag the issue on for decades (while they 'do the research') like they do with everything else.... and in the meantime the big multinational companies that are doing the damage will just keep getting richer.

An old story but relevant to the catastrophic fish kills..

Barnaby caught in July 2017 mouthing off in a pub in Victoria. He was the responsible federal Minister. A few days earlier he had condemned water theft, after it had been exposed that the NSW Government appeared to be turning a very blind eye in that direction..
The deputy prime minister, agriculture and water minister told a gathering at a Hotel Australia in Shepparton that he had given water back to agriculture through the Murray Darling Basin plan so the “greenies were not running the show”.
“We have taken water, put it back into agriculture, so we could look after you and make sure we don’t have the greenies running the show basically sending you out the back door, and that was a hard ask,” he said in comments reported by the ABC.
“A couple of nights ago on Four Corners, you know what that’s all about? It’s about them trying to take more water off you, trying to create a calamity. A calamity for which the solution is to take more water off you, shut more of your towns down.”
