  1. On the whole, today’s been kind of a rollercoaster. At the start of the day I was sad and disgusted at all the media so quick to paint Abbott as a martyr of the ‘no’ campaign. In the afternoon I was glad that Malcolm Roberts might very well be booted out of the senate, and now that the full story’s mostly been known, I’m just disappointed that the anarchist didn’t smack Abbott’s creepy lizardy dishonest smug lying face in with a two-by-four.

    Thankfully comments earlier in the day helped, like one on Twitter that said something like “Aw, poor Tony. Don’t worry. NSW Police used to throw gay men off cliffs so I’m sure you’ll cope with a swollen lip, snowflake”.

    I just wonder, are we going to have to put up with this shit as front-and-centre news until mid-November? Really?

  2. Thinking of all the ugliness and despicable lies being spat in this campaign, I honestly want another one to be created.

    A postal survey that asks the question – “Should religious entities pay tax?” [Yes] [No].

    I honestly don’t care about precedents anymore. I hate this fucking survey and I want the other side to suffer this feeling.

    • I think Tones is of the “martyr” tradition in the Catholic church. For him the greater the “persecution” the greater the justification he feels for whatever embarrassing thing he is pedalling. It is an affirmation.

  3. This is brilliant. It got a good run on 7.5. Even showed how the nay-sayers are so wrong. So what is wrong with telling someone “This will kill you”?

    The ACT government has agreed to allow pill testing at a coming music festival, in an effort to reduce deaths and harm to young people taking illicit drugs.

    It’s the first time the long called for process has been allowed to operate at an Australian event, and harm minimisation advocates have labelled it a win.

    Safety Testing and Advisory Service at Festivals and Events (STA-Safe) would conduct the drug-testing service at the the Spilt Milk festival on 25 November, the ACT health minister, Meegan Fitzharris, said on Friday.

    Those attending the festival will be able to take their drugs to the testing site – run by trained professionals and not monitored by police – to find out more about the ingredients, but they will be advised that the testing process has limitations and cannot identify every substance in a sample.

  4. Time for all the FFA to resign. And the less Lowy jnr has to do with it the better.

    Martin Glenn, the Football Association’s heavily criticised chief executive, faces further embarrassment after admitting the organisation deliberately chose a black woman to investigate the Mark Sampson race allegations – without apparently realising the FA’s lawyers had already sent a letter to the Guardian warning such a claim was “plainly false”.

    Glenn, one of the executives most under scrutiny after Sampson’s sudden sacking on Wednesday, promised he would offer a personal apology to Eni Aluko and Drew Spence if the controversial and reopened independent inquiry found that the now‑deposed England women’s manager had made racial comments to the two players.

  5. And this Russian street composer in the beautiful hands of this Argentinian lady… an all-time classic performance.

  6. Finally my survey turned up, ticked the YYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS box for me and for my partners (she gave me permission as she is away working at the moment) she also wanted the YYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS box ticked.

    So from the chat household another two YESes and I so wish I could have made 2 million YESes for my fellow citizens.

    Now when can I expect my survey into whether I agree with the rich nobs in business getting a tax cut, my survey to whether I agree the poor, the disabled, the disadvantaged, etc should get another kicking, my survey as to whether refugees should be caged like some criminal instead of a fellow human being in dire straits. Where is my survey into whether I think workers should be fcuked continually by their employers, and the one where I can agree or disagree with the destruction of mine and everyone elses environment but rich mining companies that rely on us taxpayers to pay for their searching for minerals which they don’t pay taxes on. Oh, and mustn’t forget my survey on whether I agree with religion making demands on my lifestyle and my choices and whether I would prefer they fcuk of and mind their own business.

    Fcuk at the rate we are going to be getting surveys the richest company in the country is going to be AusPost.

    Thank fcuk for democracy.

  7. Uber blocked from operating in London after company deemed not ‘fit and proper’

    LONDON’S transport authority says it won’t renew Uber’s license to operate in the British capital, arguing that it demonstrates a lack of corporate responsibility with implications in public safety and security.

    Transport for London says the car-hailing app was not “fit and proper to hold a private hire operator license.”

    It cited its approach to handling serious criminal offences and its use of software to block regulatory bodies from gaining full access to the app, preventing “officials from undertaking regulator or law enforcement duties.”

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he supported Friday’s decision, saying any operator of taxi services in the city “needs to play by the rules.”

    He says that “providing an innovative service must not be at the expense of customer safety and security.”

  8. Defying Trump, Iran says will boost missile capabilities

    LONDON (Reuters) – Iran will strengthen its missile capabilities and will not seek any country’s permission, President Hassan Rouhani said on Friday in a snub to demands from U.S. President Donald Trump.

    Rouhani was speaking at a military parade where an Iranian news agency said one of the weapons on display was a new ballistic missile with range of 2,000 km (1,200 miles), capable of carrying several warheads.

    The Tasnim news agency, which quoted the head of the Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace division, Amirali Hajizadeh, gave few other details of the missile.

    At the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Trump said Iran was building its missile capability and accused it exporting violence to Yemen, Syria and other parts of the Middle East.

  9. Anti-Chinese witch-hunt launched days before New Zealand election

    On Wednesday, three days before Saturday’s national election, the New Zealand Herald published a lengthy article on allegations contained in a “research paper” prepared by a US-based academic, entitled “China’s network of influence in New Zealand.” The paper—which appears to have been prepared with input from American, Australian and New Zealand intelligence agencies—makes sweeping insinuations that a number of leading politicians are political servants of Beijing.

    The sinister purpose of the anti-China witch-hunt is to shift New Zealand into even closer alignment with the United States. It is unfolding under conditions in which Washington is preparing to attack North Korea and provoking a potential war with China. Powerful factions of the American, Australian and New Zealand establishment clearly do not believe the current National Party government in Wellington has provided adequate military and diplomatic support.

    The Herald article appeared the same day as the world media was reporting on President Donald Trump’s fascistic diatribe at the United Nations, including his genocidal assertion that the US will “totally destroy North Korea” and accusations that China is violating “sovereignty” in the South China Sea. Under the Obama administration and now under Trump, the US military has been boosting its Asia-Pacific presence and strengthening its ties with Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand and other countries. The aim of the US build-up is to militarily encircle and threaten China, which is viewed as the major obstacle to US dominance in the Asia-Pacific and globally.

  10. Are We Really Capable of Shooting Down North Korean Missiles?

    According to some analysts, Americans may be overly confident in our military’s ability to shoot down North Korean missiles if the country were to attempt to strike. Maybe the reason we haven’t shot down North Korea’s test missiles is that we can’t. While we all certainly hope that our military would be able to successfully defend the country against incoming missiles, we need to be prepared for any possibility.

    According to an article by Joe Cirincione of Defense One, the reason we don’t shoot down North Korea’s missiles when they fire them over Japan is because…

    We don’t have the capability.

  11. RT may soon be dropped by US providers, courtesy of McCain & Graham

    Buried deep inside the just-passed defense budget is a small amendment, which could lead to a ban on broadcasting RT in America. The architects of the provision, Senators Graham and McCain, may recall that in their youth such practices formed what was known as the ‘Iron Curtain’.

    The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the fiscal year 2018, which was passed by the US Senate earlier this week, is stuffed with provisions that have little to do with US national defense. This is a tactic that US lawmakers have traditionally used to ‘piggy-back’ legislation which would have little hope of adoption as a stand-alone bill…

    “There is an obsession on Capitol hill and in the mainstream media with RT, because RT is effective and because RT is watched. But also because RT carries perspectives that are not available on the mainstream media,” commented Daniel McAdams, Executive Director for the Ron Paul Institute.

    “The fact of the matter is that John McCain and Lindsey Graham, the people behind this amendment, the Atlantic Council and the others that are trying to silence RT – they are the totalitarians, they are the enemies of free speech, the enemies of the First Amendment.”
