    The son of a van hire company boss whose van was used to mow down a group of worshippers has sparked outrage after saying: ‘It’s a shame they don’t hire out tanks’.

    Darren Osborne, 47, was identified as the attacker who allegedly hired the £80-a-day Pontyclun Van Hire van to carry out his attack in the early hours of yesterday morning.

    Richard Gear Evans, who is the son of the van hire company’s boss, responded to messages of support on his Facebook, writing: ‘It’s my dad’s company I don’t get involved, it’s a shame they don’t hire out a steam rollers or tanks could have done a tidy job then.’

    One man died and eight others were injured after the shocking attack in Finsbury Park on Sunday night.

    The 47-year-old was subsequently arrested after he allegedly shouted ‘I’m going to kill all Muslims – I did my bit’ and rammed into the crowd gathered on the pavement.

    Forensic officers were last night investigating a white van which has Pontyclun Van Hire on it, a company based in South Wales.

    Writing yesterday morning at 10.42am, Evans, who reportedly is a driver for Eddie Stobart, insisted his dad had nothing to do with the attack.

    He said: ‘He wasn’t involved only the van they just said they are deeply sorry glad I’m not running the Van Hire the police wouldn’t like what my answer would be.’

    He later responded that he wished a ‘steam roller’ or ‘tank’ had been used.

    People have now lashed out at the ‘utterly disgusting’ comments, with one person describing Evans as a ‘hateful scumbag’.

    Evans has also reportedly deleted his Facebook account since yesterday after his comments were widely shared and criticised.

    A spokesman for Eddie Stobart Logistics told Metro.co.uk that they are aware of the ‘reprehensible remarks made by Richard Gear Evans on social media and said: ‘These remarks in no way reflect the view of Eddie Stobart Logistics and we have taken immediate action.’

    Osborne is believed to have hired the van from Pontyclun Van Hire, 15 miles away from his home in the Welsh capital.

    Owners of the company hit out at the ‘cowardly’ attack using one of their vehicles more than 160 miles away and said they were ‘shocked and saddened’ that one of their vans was used.

    Metro.co.uk has contacted Pontyclun Van Hire for further comment.

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!

    The Tax fraud case info is interesting.
    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2017/jun/21/authorities-freeze-70m-of-assets-from-alleged-140-tax
    Authorities have frozen about $70m worth of assets as they begin to claw back the proceeds of an alleged $130m tax-evasion racket, a New South Wales court has heard.

    The scandal was blown open last month, culminating in the arrest of nine people, including the son and daughter of former Australian Taxation Office deputy commissioner Michael Cranston.

    A directions hearing in the NSW supreme court on Wednesday heard the scale of the alleged fraud had been revised to $144m.

    Adam Cranston, 30, and his sister Lauren, 24, were allegedly part of the syndicate that accepted legitimate payroll claims through a company called Plutus Payroll before the claims were funnelled to second-tier companies which withheld huge tax sums from the ATO.

    Corn better used as food than biofuel, study finds

    In monetary terms, their results show that the net social and economic worth of food corn production in the U.S. is $1,492 per hectare, versus a $10 per hectare loss for biofuel corn production.

    I wonder how big their grant was to work this out? Ah well, at least they’re saying it. They’ll probably now be crucified by both the climatistas and the biofuel mafia. Upsidedown.

    Gene mutation linked to psychosis in Icelandic family

    A team of researchers from Iceland, Finland and Germany has found evidence of a gene mutation in a large family in Iceland that explains why so many of them suffer from psychosis.

    Psychosis is a broad term used to describe a condition in which a person experiences a disconnect between what their senses [tell them] and the real world. Such people can experience hallucinations, have delusions and suffer from emotional extremes.

    Sounds about right.

    The terrorist GDP multiplier effect in action.

    The Metropolitan police commissioner has warned that her force is financially stretched and that she needs more money to “do the job” of policing the capital in the aftermath of the Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park terrorist attacks.

    Cressida Dick said she was in talks with the Home Office and the mayor about funding, while a string of other chief constables joined her in warning about the impact of past cuts and future funding changes.

    “We need the resources to do the job. We’re stretched and I’m talking with the mayor and the government about the resources we need,” Dick said. “We undoubtedly need a very capable police service in the future for all the reasons people can see.”

    But somehow giving the main source of the attacks a name seems beyond her..

As per Coronel, this delay has “lent credence to the Islamist discourse against supporting the peace process, heightened the historical Muslim distrust on the government, and put the Moro Islamic Liberation Front’s(MILF) credibility at stake.” Its passage is an important “plank of a larger peace-building program for Mindanao.”’ [from Vic Taylor’s piece linked in the previous post]

    BoN, did you see my post at 10.13 am?

    Delta – Yes I did. A number of sites have been mentioning the story.

    I am encouraged that Ben Santer and Michael Mann are starting to acknowledge the reality of the ~60 year cycle in the oceans. It has taken a while. Especially since Mann’s own 2005 paper demonstrates quite conclusively that it exists. The problem for them is, as soon as you acknowledge that cycle, it knocks about 40% off of climate sensitivity. Which alone probably makes CO2 harmless – even before you include the influence of the Sun on cloud cover. Which the climateers also ignore.

    Back in 2013 the UK Met Office, which is as climatastic as they come, made the mistake of putting the ~60 year cycle into a climate model to see what would happen.

    The result was the forecast temperature at the end of 2017 would be the same as in 2001.
    Oops.
    Double oops since the actual temperature at the end of 2017 is almost certainly going to be the same or lower than in 2001 – once the el-Nino completely dissipates.
    So the UK Met Office managed to accidentally disprove CAGW.
    The fun thing was they released the findings of their study on Christmas Eve 2012 so no one would notice.
    Another tell.

Until last Thursday morning, when Miss Colette Piscine swerved her car to miss Honey the cat as she drove across a bridge. Well this bridge, now slightly damaged, is a bit of a local treasure and even has its own fancy name; Pont de Flaque. Now Collette, that sounds like Culotte. That’s Panty in French. And Piscine means Pool. Panty pool. Flaque also means pool in French, so Colete Piscine, in French Panty Pool, drives over the Pont de Flaque, the Pont de Pool if you will, to avoid hitting Mrs. French’s cat that has been missing in Pontypool. Pontypool. Pontypool. Panty pool. Pont de Flaque. What does it mean? Well, Norman Mailer, he had an interesting theory that he used to explain the strange coincidences in the aftermath of the JFK assasination. In the wake of huge events, after them and before them, physical details they spasm for a moment; they sort of unlock and when they come back into focus they suddenly coincide in a weird way. Street names and birthdates and middle names, all kind of superfluous things appear related to eachother. It’s a ripple effect. So, what does it mean? Well… it means something’s going to happen. Something big. But then, something’s always about to happen.

    VICTORIAN taxpayers will foot the bill for part of the legal defence of a disgraced imam who conducted a wedding ceremony marrying a child bride to a man 20 years her senior.

    Magistrate Philip Goldberg told Ibrahim Omerdic today jail was the only option for such serious offending that endangered the 14-year-old.

    But he effectively cut him loose, jailing him for two months on a $2500 recognizance order.

    London police chief Cressida Dick said the incident was “quite clearly an attack on Muslims” and promised a stepped-up police presence near mosques as the holy month of Ramadan draws to a close.

    Ms Rudd said Muslims needed to feel safe in Britain and the government was working to tackle all forms of hate crime and extremism.

    Indicative figures suggest that over half of those who experience hate because of their religion are Muslim. Any hate crime is unacceptable but this stark figure is something we will not shy away from,” she wrote in The Guardian newspaper.

    “We stand with the Muslim community – you are not alone, we share your pain and we will not let you down.”

    Ancient skulls shed light on migration in the Roman Empire

    Using state-of-the-art forensic techniques, anthropologists from North Carolina State University and California State University, Sacramento examined skulls from three imperial Roman cemeteries: 27 skulls from Isola Sacra, on the coast of central Italy; 26 from Velia, on the coast of southern Italy; and 20 from Castel Malnome, on the outskirts of the city of Rome. The remains at the cemeteries in both Isola Sacra and Velia belonged to middle-class merchants and tradesmen, while those from Castel Malnome belonged to manual laborers. All of the remains date from between the first and third centuries A.D.

    “We found that there were significant cranial differences between the coastal communities, even though they had comparable populations in terms of class and employment,” says Ann Ross, a professor of anthropology at NC State and co-author of a paper on the work.

    “We think this is likely due to the fact that the area around Velia had a large Greek population, rather than an indigenous one,” says Samantha Hens, a professor of biological anthropology at Sacramento State and lead author of the paper.

    So the local bogans remained bogans even though the capital was a cosmopolitan melting pot?

    Coal can’t compete with renewables: AGL chief Andy Vesey:

    AGL Energy chief Andy Vesey, who runs one of the nation’s biggest coal-fired power businesses, says coal cannot compete with renewables, where prices are falling and which he sees dominating baseload power.

    The comments, made to the Australian Energy Week conference in Melbourne this morning, come a day after Malcolm Turnbull flagged potential government-backed investment in new coal-fired power plants.

    “The new baseload for us is going to be large scale renewables, firmed up by open-cycle gas and, eventually, when storage comes down, that’s what it will be,” Mr Vesey, who has said AGL will exit coal but only as plants reach the end of their scheduled lives over the next 30 years, said.

    “Technology is driving this — we don’t see any baseload other than renewables.”

    He said the economics of renewables would continue to come down because of economies of scale.

    “You’ll hear people say, ‘no coal can compete’,” Mr Vesey said.

    “But I’ve looked at the numbers and come to decisions (that) are going to direct billions of dollars of investment. I’ve looked at it pretty hard.”

    The energy boss said the more wind and solar components that were made, the faster the price would continue to fall.

    “Large coal plants, super critical and even carbon capture and storage, the more you make, the cheaper you get, but guess how many you have to make?” he said, adding the cost of coal plants had hardly moved in the past 20 years.

    Wind power had fallen 20 per cent and solar 80 per cent in that period.

    Mr Vesey, who has previouslybacked an emissions trading scheme, conceded batteries remained high cost, which was why some sort of transition scheme was needed.

    He said AGL (AGL) was very supportive of the Finkel Review’s blueprint, despite disagreeing with some pieces.

    “To get bipartisan support would be an amazing way to start to unleash energy and investmet people want to make in the system and that is the thing that will ultimately drive down prices,” Mr Vesey said.

    “This is just getting something that people can agree on, and say ‘we’re done with this now, these are the rules, invest.’ What we are doing here is not sustainable and if we let it go on you will get bad reactions.”

    He did not take questions or speak to reporters after his speech.

    This bastard is dangerous and as much as anyone is responsible for Australia’s electricity prices and chaos.

    If one wind tower or solar plant can’t produce reliable electricity 10 or 100 or 1000 cannot. This fool is compounding a negative which never produces a positive. Here is the current wind production of electricity in SA and Victoria which between them have about 3100 MW of installed capacity which cost at least $15 billion before connection costs were done:

    160 MW, a capacity factor of 5%.

    Another reason why it’s clear that BP was raped by Obama and his merry lefties.

    Mussels and sponges in the deep sea can thrive on oil with the help of symbiont bacteria

    At asphalt volcanoes in the Gulf of Mexico that spew oil, gas and tar, mussels and sponges live in symbiosis with bacteria providing them with food. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology and colleagues from the USA have now discovered deep-sea animals living in symbiosis with bacteria that use oil as an energy source and appear to thrive on short-chained alkanes in the oil. According to the researchers, bacteria closely related to the symbionts, which bloomed during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, used this ability to degrade the oil in the sea.

    In other words every living creature in the Gulf of Mexico is habituated to oil and many of them can even eat the stuff. Which we already knew because the similar sized Ixtoc-1 blowout in 1979 caused no lasting damage whatsoever. BP is out of pocket $42 billion because of fake news and fake science excreted by Green activists and lefty politicians.

    NATIONAL BREAKING NEWS
    NSW cops allowed new shoot-to-kill powers

    Stefanie Menezes
    Australian Associated Press
    6:57PM June 21, 2017

    NSW Police have been granted greater shoot-to-kill powers to deal with the “evolving threat of terrorism”.

    Legislation allowing for the strengthened powers was passed through the NSW Parliament’s upper house following a lengthy debate on Wednesday evening.

    The Bereijklian government pledged to introduce the tough new measure after the long-running probe into the 2014 Lindt Cafe siege heard snipers hesitated when they thought they had a clear shot at gunman Man Haron Monis – partially because they weren’t sure they had the legal justification to shoot him.

    The coronial report recommended the government consider legislative changes to ensure that police had the necessary protections to resolve terrorist incidents.

    At present, officers tasked with taking a so-called “kill shot” must believe their target poses an imminent threat to another person before they can fire their weapon.

    The NSW Greens strongly opposed the bill as it was introduced on Wednesday, arguing it was being rushed through parliament without proper scrutiny.

    “The key lesson from the Lindt siege it is that there is an overwhelming need within the police for good processes, timely information and quality training,” Greens MP David Shoebridge said.

    The legislation also contains no independent oversight of the police commissioner’s decision to trigger the move, he said.

    Lawyers have also raised concerns about an amendment which allows police to use the lethal force powers on anyone in a terrorist situation, not just the those engaged in such activities.

    “The legislation could result in the use of lethal force becoming the norm for any siege situation, without it necessarily being terrorist-related,” President of the NSW Law Society of NSW Pauline Wright said.

    The new laws will also give the parole board greater discretion to refuse parole for inmates linked to terrorism, or those radicalised while in prison.

    Ms Berejiklian says the tough legislation will ensure NSW has some of the strongest counter-terror laws in the world.

    “Community safety is our highest priority. I want our brave police men and women to be absolutely clear that they have our full support to keep the community safe,” she said in a statement on Wednesday.

    The bill passed with the Labor opposition’s support.

    Breaking news, from the Oz. The fvking Greens, ever brave in the face of danger – some one else’s danger.

    A deindustrialised and de-electrified economy is perfectly suited for a culture that can positively thrive in a tribal world of caves, mudhuts and bare feet, as long as the Bully Pulpit gets the message across every Friday.

    Ruinables are intended to tip the Anglosphere into a death spiral.

    Not just the ever increasing amount of squandered resources, but every month that ticks along brings the end of the existing baseload coal power ever closer.

    Six years of the incoming shorten foundation, with no applications for new coal plants even getting through an approval process, and it being uneconomic to keep pouring maintainance money into old plants will bring the tipping point so very close.

    We will see how their services economy with its ponzi foundation of imported client herds goes when the country goes full merkel and tries to airlift enough of the Mobilised Peoples to beat the recession.

    More embarrassing science.

    In the Red Sea, coral reefs can take the heat of climate change

    In the azure waters of the Red Sea, Maoz Fine and his team dive to study what may be the planet’s most unique coral: one that can survive global warming, at least for now.

    The corals, striking in their red, orange and green colours, grow on tables some eight metres (26 feet) underwater, put there by the Israeli scientists to unlock their secrets to survival.

    They are of the same species that grows elsewhere in the northern Red Sea and are resistant to high temperatures.

    Fine’s team dives in scuba gear to monitor the corals, taking notes on water-resistant pads.

    “We’re looking here at a population of corals on a reef that is very resilient to high temperature changes, and is most likely going to be the last to survive in a world undergoing very significant warming and acidification of sea water,” Fine said at his nearby office ahead of the dive.

    I love Israelis. If the world hates you already then you may as well be honest scientists and say FU to the reef mafia too.

    (Recent findings from New Caledonia say the same thing.)

    Risky gold rush: Indonesia tackles illegal mining boom

    Hulking excavators claw at riverbanks on Indonesia’s Sumatra island in the hunt for gold, transforming what was once a rural idyll into a scarred, pitted moonscape.

    It is one of a huge number of illegal gold mines that have sprung up across the resource-rich archipelago as the price of the precious metal has soared, luring people in rural areas to give up jobs in traditional industries.

    Now authorities in Sumatra’s Jambi province, which has one of the biggest concentrations of illegal mining sites in Indonesia, have started a determined fightback, combining a crackdown with attempts at regulation.

    Declines in the price of rubber, which provided a livelihood for many in the area who had worked on plantations tapping the commodity, has driven many locals to more lucrative—and dangerous—gold mining.

    As you might expect the garimperos are using mercury to extract the gold and the pollution downstream must be horrendous.

    I remember when Rio, as they now are called, found gold at Mt Kare in the PNG highlands. About 10,000 locals rocked up and took the whole top off the hill, extracted the gold and wandered off again. Which left Rio with a much less valuable project…

    The story of Mt Kare has everything, even the slugs and grubs.

    “If it must be Galle, book a couple of nights at the Galle Face Hotel, and haggle with the locals about local accomodation from there.”

    Armadillo, the Galle Face Hotel is actually in Colombo, not Galle.

    Dr BG., there is an interesting historic link between Galle and the Colony of New South Wales. When Britain took control of Sri Lanka from the Dutch (then known as Zeelan, anglicised to Ceylon), a young Highland Lieutenant was ordered to march from Colombo and take control of Galle. He marched his men to Colombo and found that the Dutch inside the fort had locked the gates.

    He could have ordered his men to storm the fort, this was his first assignment as a young officer, his moment of glory, but he chose instead to wait. He ordered his men to setup camp in front of the gates, in full view of the Dutch defenders, and the next morning the Dutch decided to open the gates and surrender.

    The young officer marched his men into the fort, gathered all the notable townspeople from the mayor down, and dismissed them all from office. The Dutch flag was lowered, the Union Jack was hoisted, and all the townspeople then became British subjects. He then reappointed everyone to their former roles, lined his troops up, and they marched back to Colombo.

    He acquired a bit of a reputation from the way he took the surrender of Galle, his fellow officers started to refer to him jokingly as the Governor of Galle. News of his success without a shot being fired reached the British Colonial Office, and his diplomatic approach earmarked him as a future colonial officer.

    He was Lachlan Macquarie, to whom some historians attach the title, the Father of Australia. So, the Governor of Galle became the Father of Australia, all due to Macquarie’s decision to setup camp at the Gates of Galle.

    Armadillo, the Galle Face Hotel is actually in Colombo, not Galle.

    Oh crap. You are quite correct. The Galle Face Hotel is the big white one right in town. I stand corrected. Was thinking of the Galle Fort Hotel. Face/Fort. They are both white. The Fort is an old Dutch mansion. It wasn’t a hotel at the time, but it is now.

    But could you turn your mind to possible solutions as well as robot from Lost in Space arm waving “Warning! Will Robinson”. Alarums?

    Little things: chose your politicians carefully; promote personal self defence rights; support the like-minded and don’t quibble about inconsequential but divisive points which the non-snowflakes do instinctively; be relentless about the big issues -islam, alarmism, fossil fuels, censorship – and never back down to the snowflakes; and wear a Trump t-shirt at least once a week.

    Yes it is responsible. Anyone who has ever broadcast on radio or television in this country understands that. The ABC “spokesperson” lies.

    free worms are better than my mince

    GM – I have been guilty of gazumping.

    This afternoon I felt like a walk, since the sun was out, so went down to the nearby reserve. A trek of a k or so there and back, just enough to clear away mental cobwebs. I took some mince since the kooka family to the south often hangs out in the vicinity in the afternoon.

    Which they do because a lady in one of the houses puts food out for them, as I saw one day recently.

    But they also know me! So when I arrived they were stricken by indecision, she or I. I won! Two of them came down and sat at my feet while I fed them mince balls. Which is fine as the rest of the family (5 in total) then scoffed her stuff.

    Vesey is well qualified but has been an alarmist from day 1. I used to have a lot do with the lads from Macquarie Generation who were taken over by AGL with their Bayswater and Liddell coal stations, 2 of the best. They were all sceptics and I took note-worthies like Monckton and Carter to give in-house seminars at MacGen. They were all aware of what this bastard was and saw the writing on the wall; none of them are still with the firm. Vesey is chasing the subsidies and gov’t money but he genuinely believes.

    He has degrees in both disciplines, but is neither of the two in practice.

    It’s also debatable if he is acting in the interest of AGL shareholders. His argument is dependent on crony capitalism and carries high sovereign risk.

    When thermageddonism is inevitably consigned to the dustbin of history, the corporatists who collaborated with the corrupt politicians and mandarins might find they have lighter pockets once the plaintiff attorneys are done with them.

    Arrgh.

    ^x + 15 + ^x = 15
    (^x + 15)2 = (15 -^x)2
    x + 15 = 225 – 30^x + x
    30^x = 210
    ^x = 210/30 =7

    I stayed there years ago with The Lefty Philosopher (first husband). I think they have done a refurbishment or two since then. It is by the sea and very old colonial, gorgeous solid verandahs for G & T’s, beautiful aspect. We were drinking at that time with the junior Dip Corps. Lefty was a solid lefty but we went first class everywhere: in Asia, Lizzie, you have to exercise your financial superiority, he explained.

    Yoga has connected the world with India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Wednesday, as he rolled out his mat along with millions of others across the globe to celebrate the ancient practice.

    Enthusiasts across India rose at the crack of dawn, many braving monsoon showers, to mark the third International Yoga Day.

    In the western city of Ahmedabad, 125,000 led by celebrity yoga guru Baba Ramdev gathered at an open-air ground to try to set a new Guinness World record for the largest session.

    Tax boss ‘warned’ fraud case son

    The former deputy director of the Australian Taxation Office counselled his son about how to minimise his alleged involvement in an unprecedented $144 million tax fraud conspiracy more than two weeks before the suspected ringleaders were arrested, according to a Supreme Court affidavit.

    According to transcripts of phone intercepts detailed in court documents, Michael Cranston told son Adam on May 2 he had to “be really careful” as he was “high risk”.

    Ten people, including Michael Cranston, have been charged over the alleged fraud, which involved prominent company Plutus Payroll allegedly deliberately withholding tax, and siphoning it off to smaller companies ultimately controlled by those accused.

    “I could mount a good case that you own Synep, which owns ­Plutus, who’s responsible for 1200 people through subcontractors and not paying PAYG,” Michael Cranston is alleged to have said. “So you just gotta be ­really careful mate. That’s why, um … you’re high risk, because you’re connected. Because Synep owns Plutus, you own Synep. They’ll see that you’re connected.”

    Michael Cranston, who has since resigned from the ATO, told his son he would face civil action rather than criminal, and investigators would likely zero in on ­“unexplained wealth”.

    Adam tells his father he has “no unexplained wealth … zero”, to which Michael replies: “You’ve got a lot of f..king cars, mate,’’ ­according to the affidavit.

    The document — an affidavit from an Australian Federal Police officer involved in the investigation — details the vast sums of money involved.

    In separate recorded conversations, Adam Cranston asks his childhood friend and co-accused Christopher Guillan if he should “pay them 15 grand to airfreight my (Porsche) Cayenne” to get it five weeks early, which he later does, and appears to forget he bought his brother Josh a luxury car as well. “I’ve got to pay for Josh’s Porsche too, man. F..k, remember we bought that?” he say

    Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied has declared Australia’s system of parliamentary democracy “doesn’t represent anyone”, and delivered a lecture on our inability to acknowledge that we live on “stolen land”.

    The writer and mechanical engineer — whose ABC show was dumped last month — appeared on a panel at an Australian National University leadership forum in Canberra on Wednesday night.

    Ms Abdel-Magied took a swipe at the media for taking the “easy option” and painting her as an “other” who poses a “threat”.

    She also had a heated exchange with ANU Chancellor and former Labor foreign minister Gareth Evans, over the future of parliamentary democracy. “If you just play the GetUp! game or the social media game and don’t do the serious parliamentary game as well, if you don’t do that as well you’re missing a very important vehicle for actually getting decent policy,” Professor Evans said.

    Ms Abdel-Magied said change was inevitable. “The traditional parliamentary system, I mean look at the photo of the House of Representatives,” she said. “It does not represent anyone.”

    Opening her talk, Ms Abdel-Magied acknowledged the Ngunnawal people. “We don’t know how to have a conversation about the fact that we’re on contested land, on stolen land,” she said.

    “We don’t like to have a conversation about nuance or about history or about context, and so the reason that I choose to acknowledge at the beginning of this and every opportunity is because for at least a moment we can remember that we don’t exist in a vacuum … that history makes us who we are, and that when we ask these broad questions about whether we’re globalists or nationalists, about trust in democracy, we have to think about who that applies to and how that’s actually worked for some people.”

    She was asked by an audience member how she responded to people who had “been ferocious” to her following an ABC TV Q&A ­appearance in which said Islam was the “most feminist religion”, and her Anzac Day Facebook post: “Lest We Forget (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine)”.

    “I spent all my life in this country building this narrative of this chick who’s like a Muslim revhead who works on rigs who digs with the boys and blah blah blah,” she said. “One social media post ruined that, and that’s out of my hands. That’s at the hands of ­people who owns our media, who runs our country and has those conversations in our parliamentary chambers.

    “Those sorts of power, those institutions of power are geared against people like me because they see votes in it and because fear is so much easier to sell.”

    Another audience member who identified himself as “Kevin” observed that there were alternatives to western democracies, such as theocracies in the Middle East and “relatively benign dictatorships” in Asia.

    “Do you think that as western democracies falter and are unable to respond to policy challenges meaningfully, such as climate change, those alternative forms of governance and arranging society become even more popular and more attractive?” Kevin asked.

    Ms Abdel-Magied said it was a great question because it the assumption that the “neoliberalist capitalist project” had worked for everyone.

    “Being born in Sudan and having grown up in a family where the view that western democracy has been exported by countries who have decided that western democracy is the only way that you can govern in a good manner, and that being challenged now, I think there are lots of Arab leaders now who are quite happy that Trump’s in power because they’re like, ‘look America always said that democracy was the greatest, look where it got them now,’ and that’s actually been a way that they’ve talked to their people and said, ‘this is why we won’t have democracy, because this is where democracy gets you’,” Ms Abdel-Magied said.
