Phew: Insiders got through the show without looking at govt debt hitting half a trillion dollars #Insiders
kk – Well then he missed it.
Cassidy mentioned it. The ‘visitors’ shrugged and he went on to the next item.
Kouk said “looking at it”, sounds like Insiders merely “Meh’d’ it, nothing to see here. You would think all that ‘debt and deficit disaster’ talk from the Coalition and the press coverage when the debt was half that never happened.
If only there were more like her.
Outspoken Senator Will Keep Dragging Her Party On Adani And Asylum Seekers
So much better than the usual mealy-mouthed Labor dribble about stopping people drowning at sea and Adani providing 10,000 jobs.
Worth mentioning – Labor gave Ms Singh a supposedly unwinnable position on the Tasmanian senate ballot paper last election. They wanted her gone. The voters of Tasmania had other ideas.
Are senators taking fewer risk when they speak out?
I meant, as opposed to MPs.
And then they grow up.
Interesting tweet regarding the contempt case, as the other tweeter says, it wasn’t government work.
I agree with that tweet.
The three ministers sent unsolicited emails to a journalist at The Australian, they did not make off-the-cuff remarks during interviews.
That to me means they issued statements, and they all colluded on them. It was an orchestrated attack on the court and the judges, not some innocent remarks made in ignorance, as the SG wanted the three judges at the contempt hearing to believe.
How often have we heard some Abbott/Turnbull minister or other dodge a question by saying they cannot talk about an issue because it’s before the courts. And yet THREE ministers all decided to make comments while a matter was still with the court. Ignorance? Not blooming likely.
Ah yes that damned ‘Red Tape’. Bane of the Tory scum here and there.
Watch Dave in all his glory shit on Health and Safety. The original article
“Health and safety legislation has become an “albatross around the neck of British businesses”, costing them billions of pounds a year and leaving entrepreneurs in fear of speculative claims, he said”
gigi – On Fr24 there’s a suggestion that Macron’s party will get near 75% of the seats!
We’;ll just how malleable Dicky is
“Police investigating the shooting of four cars as they drove through Perth say one car was hit by a total of seven rounds.”
Not gone ‘postal’, I hope?
Perth found a jihadi ?
Well WA’s a Labor state now so some ‘dick’ will claim terrorism in no time.
Just wait for Injustice minister Keenan in parly tomorrow.
Oh Noes first the shootin’ in Perth and now the oldies joining in. ISIS is everywhere…………………that the Russians aren’t 🙂
A CENTENARIAN ploughed into a garden fence on Cornwall Street, Swanborne yesterday afternoon.
A police spokesman said the 100-year-old female driver ran into the suburban fence just after 3pm, cutting her lip.
Independent Super-oldies In Swanborne ?
Tis where the nudie beach is………….. oh and the SAS barracks. No connection though.
Now I remember where I’ve seen you before –
Maybe it was another attempt to steal a armored personnel carrier to drive around Perth.
I wonder if the legal eagles have more gumption than the afp when it comes to the lnp.
The legal eagles seemed very unimpressed in the video.
If you haven’t seen it yet and have an hour and a half to spare –
Those three not turning up really is lèse-majesté.
Razz and I watched it this morning. I was impressed with the clarity of the judges. I was almost enthralled by their attitude. The person representing the 3 libs was very hesitant and unsure.
A timely reminder
Wow, I thought trumble was supposed to be a very smart lawyer person.
He just thinks he is immune.
It’s that lack of judgement thing again.
The question has to be asked …
What has gone so horribly wrong that committing contempt of court and then cowardice is a better option than letting what ever it is face the full light of day?
The terrorists just aren’t doing their bit
I wonder what the breakdown is for domestic violence deaths is within that total.
In other breaking news, the Premier also refused to rule out having a glass of wine with his dinner.
This rule in rule out stuff is just silly. Wait and see.
#Newspoll Federal 2 Party Preferred: L/NP 47 (0) ALP 53 (0) #auspol
Mind the bounce!
#Newspoll Turnbull: Approve 32 (-3) Disapprove 55 (+1)
#Newspoll Federal Primary Votes: L/NP 36 (0) ALP 37 (+1) GRN 9 (-1) ON 11 (+2)
#Newspoll Preferred PM: Turnbull 44 (-1) Shorten 31 (-2)
“Shorten falls further behind as preferred PM”
#NEWSPOLL @australian Turnbull: Satisfied 32 (-3) Dissatisfied 55 (+1) Shorten: S 32 (-1) D 55 (+2) Better PM: T 44 (-1) S 31 (-2)
So after all that – Labor’s primary vote keeps creeping up, Shorten and Fizza are neck and neck in the approval/disapproval numbers and the government is still being propped up by ON.
There is no positive spin possible for the government from those results.
Stormtroopers with guns, armed guards outside his room 24/7. Is Oberst-Gruppenführer Kartoffelkopf staging a re-enactment of Kristallnacht?
EXCLUSIVE: Heartless Peter Dutton terrorises 73 year-old community leader

Looking good for the President:
The worry now is his “Workchoices” which is not popular.
Make that 1.4%
