    As for Candy not knowing what she is talking about re Vic politics, ditto for you nemkat.
    Firstly, Hunchback is almost certain not to lead the ALP to the next election.
    Secondly, the JB crime problem is a perfect electoral storm for the ALP. It is concentrated almost exclusively in ALP held electorates in the West, South East and Northern suburbs. Dan has a majority of about 10 (depending on independents). Their internal polling shows they are screwed in TWELVE of those seats.
    Do the math.

    Leigh is right. A harsh approach to stamping out gang violence is achievable and the voters know that.

    Perth cops stamped out the skinhead gangs in the late 1970’s by methods that would be considered harsh.

    The gangs must be reigned in and tapping into the innate sense of decency of voters is the way to do it.
    If the ALP cracks down on the gangs, the Africans will blockvote for the Liberal Party.
    Then, when the Liberal Party is in Government they’ll be looking to placate their new voters, so…
    Also, learn to spell rein.
    Please.

    I think harsh is good, methods for the times. Not being from Victoria or WA – I have no opinion or comment on failed Liberal leaders in those states except to say they are losers.

    Good.
    Shut the fuck up then.
    I was an LNP member at the time. It is common knowledge that Napthine was genuinely drafted by the party (both Parliamentary and organisational). He refused three times over a month long period and met with Low Energy Ted a week before Ted got the arse to advise him of the situation and even suggested a couple of things Ted might do to save his skin.

    In terms of mandatory sentencing if you suggested ten years for home invasions and car jackings the reaction from most people would be … “What? Don’t we already have sentences like that?”

    The simple fix is to let the citizenry DIY and do it very publicly. Would probably only take 5 home invaders to get drilled before home invasion became a thing of the past.

    The biggest factor in the next Vic election will be that the last couple of years most of us couldn’t fucking drive anywhere without being stuck in a massive roadwork caused traffic jams.

    I tend to think a premier or PM is elected. I don’t see why they should be bullied to “save their skin” because the reps are worried about losing their positions.

    You know, it’s about the people who vote for the premier or PM. They should be given the opportunity to vote “no”.
    Terms are 3 years. The desperation I see says “whatever it takes” because the chaps and ladies do not want to lose their fantastic salaries. It is no more than that. It is simply not about policy. It is about their salary.

    On Africans, anyone been to Guangzhou ?

    Another fact close to the ground is that an awful lot of African traders are in Guangzhou to be missionaries. They want to convert China to the word of the Lord, and that’s not commonly known.

    Another common feature is, most African traders in Guangzhou say that they have been cheated by Chinese, and a standard line is that Chinese cheat.

    The Arabs say the Africans are drug dealers, the Africans say the Arabs are terrorists, they both say Chinese are cheaters.

    And another stereotype I gotta tell you, this one’s funny – “We believe in God, but the Chinese only believe in gold.”

    And there’s a grain of truth to that. Many Chinese are not religious. Many Muslims are offended when, after a deal, the Chinese want to have a glass of liquor and smoke a cigarette. But that’s a cultural difference that has to be somehow dealt with.

    … one of the saddest interviews I conducted was with a man from Central Africa who had been in China for many years and spoke fluent Mandarin. He felt Chinese, but he just looked at me and said: “You know, when Chinese refer to me as a foreign friend, they emphasise the foreign and not the friend.”

    Obama was very necessary because without him there would be no President Trump. But I’m worried that too many people still want socialism. Hopefully President Trump will be able to smash the illegal voting.

    Smith said Maxwell could consider himself “unlucky” but urged the 29-year-old to take the axing as a wake-up call and change his training habits to get his way back into the national team.

    “Just looking at the way he trains … I think he could train a little bit smarter,” Smith said.

    “We’ve all seen the way he can come out and play and do all his funky stuff and be pretty cool with that.

    “But when he puts his head down he’s actually a really good batsman as we’ve seen in Shield cricket. He’s got some big runs there.

    Roger said Howard disarmed Australia. When did this genuine reason to own a weapon come into force? Did Howard introduce it?

    Yeah little johnny did; he got rid of D category weapons and made the licences for both being a shooter and each weapon some of the toughest in the world. From his viewpoint and the green bureaucrats who infest firearms his biggest mistake was not getting rid of the clubs. The clubs enable a large voting block (see SFF) to maintain their base and interest and makes them very hard to pick off as they do occasionally with some poor bloody farmer.

  39. Mater

    When did this genuine reason to own a weapon come into force? Did Howard introduce it?

    When I got my licence prior to ’96, I didn’t need to go fumbling around joining clubs, getting hunting licences or seeking the signatures of large land holders.
    When I was required get it again, post ’96, I did.

    Lezzos kissing on a flight gawked at. Here is Fairfax’s burden of proof as to the story’s merit:

    I suspect this is a deliberate LGBTI strategy. I was on a Johburg – Perth flight last year. Not Qantas. Three men in the row in front. Well before the seatbelt light went off two of them were indulging in a noisy and passionate tounging. Straight male calls hostie and requests another seat. Granted. The two lovers shared three seats for the remainder of the flight. Simples.

    I see where your heading John but people need to take a few precautions to help themselves. Only a few of us are capable of fighting off or outrunning the scum so a bit of protection wouldn’t hurt the oldies that are under siege. The oldies then need to hotline a few local white punks to come to their aid for the price of a carton. Go community spirit! 😉

    I’m sorry but you are wrong, there was no need for a license to buy a firearm in the seventies-eighties, automatic or not. All that came after the Howard buy-back, confiscation.

    Do you realise that if you had a gun when that dog bit you, you could have shot it in self-defence and now you wouldn’t have that irrational fear of guns and dogs. Nor this fantasy about AK47s.

    Years ago, gun owners were not licensed and guns were not registered. Any legal gun owner now will have his/her weapons confiscated as soon as the civil shit hits the fan in this country.
    Anyone who thinks they will be good for when society inevitably breaks down is only fooling his/her self.

    Andrews has actually clawed back support in the last six months.


    The truth is all politicians are useless and basically have no powers. The bureaucracy holds all the power and department heads make ministers toe the line. At least trump gets to pick his supporters to help him run the country but not in Australia where politicians come and go but public servants are firmly ensconsed in their fiefdoms. My Senate vote will count but what is the point of a two horse vote in the HoR for no difference in policy. Stuff them. Same for State

    Neil,

    Howard knew these efforts would be expensive. But he said he knew they would also be worth it.

    “The fundamental problem,” he wrote in a New York Times op-ed 17 years after the Port Arthur shooting, “was the ready availability of high-powered weapons, which enabled people to convert their murderous impulses into mass killing. Certainly, shortcomings in treating mental illness and the harmful influence of violent video games and movies may have played a role. But nothing trumps easy access to a gun. It is easier to kill 10 people with a gun than with a knife.”

    These reforms passed, creating the National Firearms Agreement. Aside from banning certain semiautomatic and self-loading rifles and shotguns, the legislation required all firearm licence applicants to show “genuine reason” for owning a gun, which couldn’t include self-defence.

    Discovering that the local cops couldn’t spell “human rights” and tend to shoot first, and ask questions afterwards, could be a downer.

  52. cohenite

    So did you need a gun licence before 1996 or not?

    For handguns yes; up until 1996 long-arm licences were random.

    So did you need a gun licence before 1996 or not?

    In the early 1990s, Queensland introduced a shooter’s licence for rifles.

    Prior to that, the only requirement was to be age 17 and older (except for pistols which required a licence).

    Sports stores sold rifles & ammunition.

  58. nemkat

    So did you need a gun licence before 1996 or not?

    In Qld, a licence was needed for handguns.
    Long arms could be registered at a Police Station every 12 months – voluntarily.
    The best reason for doing so was if the weapon was kept for self defence.
    On the off chance that it was used for self defence, the person could present as a responsible gun owner.

    I remember standing behind a slightly slow farm boy in the local cop shop years ago, the poor old duck administrator was at pains to talk him through his reasoning for wanting a license. Her every “yes, that’s fine but it’s not a good enough reason” was continually met with “to kill fucking foxes and snakes and protect my family”. She eventually talked him into ‘to protect livestock and euthanise injured livestock’ or words to that effect. I found it intriguing that offing vermin and animals that would cause livestock and your livelihood harm wasn’t quite enough. Offing your own animals was though.

    Neil,
    I gave you quote and a link to an article which answered your question directly. As I said, all states were different – I had to get my first one when I moved to the ACT in the nineties (but what else would you expect).
    Don’t conflate the licensing issues of today with a process which basically only allowed the serial number of the gun to be allocated to an individual. It was not unlike registering your microchipped dog/cat.

    Baldrick:
    read a book review today that would interest you.
    Apparently, all other Counties beside Australia in the 14/18 War counted men who died of wounds after the Armistice in their total of War Dead.
    Using that criteria, Australia’s 14/18 War Dead totals over 70,000.
    He also presents evidence that the casualty rate was massively underreported, and that Australia paid a greater price, per capita, than any other Country, on either side.
    Overall, a reappraisal of the real cost of the War is long overdue.

    An excited Nassim Khadem (Fairfax) says it’s time Australia follows the example of … Iceland … and makes it law that women be officially treated as retarded and incapable of matching it with men:

    Iceland has mandated equal pay and Australia has to take note.

    According to Iceland opinion polls, Icelanders generally support quotas.

    So there’s been systemic changes: In 2008, Iceland passed a law that requires at least 40 per cent of each gender to be represented on boards and in senior management in public corporations.

    According to Iceland opinion polls, Icelanders generally support quotas.

    So there’s been systemic changes: In 2008, Iceland passed a law that requires at least 40 per cent of each gender to be represented on boards and in senior management in public corporations…

    Iceland also has continually worked towards the most gender equal parliaments in the world, with about 50 per cent of lawmakers being women.

    The culmination of all this is that for the past nine years Iceland has been ranked by the World Economic Forum as the world’s most gender-equal country.

  128. C.L.

    Further …

    87 per cent of the Icelandic gender gap has already been closed. It has been reduced by 10 per cent since 2006, making Iceland among the fastest nations to reach gender equality.

    Australia, meanwhile, ranked 35th out of 144 countries.

    Meanwhile, in the Credit Suisse list of the world’s wealthiest 30 nations, Australia ranks 12th.
    Iceland doesn’t make the list.

    He also presents evidence that the casualty rate was massively underreported, and that Australia paid a greater price, per capita, than any other Country, on either side.

    I find that difficult to believe. John Terraine’s classic “The Smoke and the Fire: Myths and Anti Myths of the First World War” cites the heaviest casualty rate as being suffered by the Austro Hungarian army – NINETY percent of all men mobilized were killed, wounded or captured. The highest casualty rate amongst the victorious powers were the French – over 70% of all men mobilized were killed, wounded or captured. No wonder the French weren’t so keen on a re – run in May, 1940.

    “Meanwhile, in the rush to put on a good show for the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in September, Ashgabat garnished the wages of state employees by 20-30 percent — officially a “donation.”

    Pannier and Anceschi call this a “terminal crisis” — a crisis from which there is no exit without radical change in economic policymaking. Importantly, there is no democratic means of changing course in Turkmenistan. A dissatisfied public has no outlet to either complain or motivate change.

    The story of the black car ban — the arbitrary rulemaking that autocrats enjoy — is just another footnote in what could be a slow burn into real crisis.”

    Australiastan is into the slow burn of autocracy. We know that our superannuation funds will end up being donated to the cause, that their Julie bishop and the turnbullites will sign anything to put on a good show for the transnational looting cartels, we have no pathway to complain, or demand change.

    Removal of cash, paramilitary death squads with shoot to kill 007 mandates, NBN to censor all, the mass importation of the population Ponzi, private vehicles to all become belonga State, firearms to become too dangerous to be privately held, because we have imported so many potential terrorists and crims that might steal them.

    What’s so extraordinary about 37C compared to -13C? If you’re not wearing a hat and gloves in -13C and lolling about in a t-shirt you’re very likely to be suffering from hypothermia within a few hours. The only conditions that could make this unlikely would be very dry air and still wind. And you going in and out of heated areas reasonably often.

    The glittering autocrat and their black hand clique ruling us here in turnbullistan may well only be keeping the seats warm for the true shorten crime family to take over but….

    “As Ronald Watson (a pseudonym) wrote in his introduction to an ongoing series of articles about the Turkmen economy published by Exeter’s Central Asia Network, “As is characteristic of this country, the government is most effectively fighting the rumours about the problems rather than the problems themselves.”

    Deindustrialisation, export of our industry as war reparations, mass importations of military age single male veterans of the war against racism and colonialism, rolling blackouts and demand destruction to cope with the side effects of dynamiting our power plants….

    The difference between Turkmenistan and us here in turnbullistan is that one country has an even chance of dodging electricity blackouts this weekend.

    [ the 30 percent donation garnished from the wages of the turkmenistani public service seems like a good idea though. For the Cause.]

    Donald Trump Didn’t Want to Be President

    Way back in early 2016 lots of people thought that Trump didn’t really want to be President. It was said well into the year that he was in the campaign simply to spoil the chances of the other Republican candidates, to burn them off and then walk away. Many opined that he was doing this partly because of his intense dislike of the Republican Party but also to assist Hillary Clinton to become President.

    Steve Bannon book author is a total hack, according to everyone who’s ever worked with him.

  191. Myrddin Seren

    Saw this on the Sky News at the motel this morning:

    Boy, 5, shot by cousin in the face at Stanthorpe

    THE distraught family of a five-year-old boy fighting for his life after his cousin accidentally shot him in the face was last night anxiously awaiting the results of emergency surgery.

    The boy was playing in a shed at a family home along Granite Belt Drive at Cottonvale, near Stanthorpe, on Tuesday afternoon, when his 12-year-old cousin picked up a rifle.

    While playing with the weapon, he accidentally fired a shot at the boy’s face.

    The victim’s distraught grandfather, Tony Calvisi, last night told The Courier-Mail the children were forbidden from touching guns, but curiosity got the better of them.

    Because in the whole history of the human race, boys have never, ever done anything dangerous when unsupervised……

    “They were playing with something they were always told never to touch, and I don’t know why,” Mr Calvisi said.

    (The gun) was in a place where they shouldn’t have got to it. But children, they find things.”

    Really sorry for the family – this is going to be devastating. Both for the boy shot, if he survives, and the boy who pulled the trigger and will have to live with that for the rest of his life.

    Based on what I have been reading here from the Cat Collective, I get the impression that “(The gun) was in a place where they shouldn’t have got to it” is not likely to cut the mustard with the Police and the future of weapons storage and gun licenses for the Calvisi family ?

    Most farms are family businesses in which both husband and wife work. Children too.

    Boy,5, shot by cousin
    Absolutely no excuse for a loaded weapon being left where kids can get to it.
    The magazine should be empty and and the chamber checked. The old man taught that to me when he bought me my first rifle and I never vary the routine.

  201. I see Bannon and Trump have declared war on each other.

    Here are the key quotes attributed to Bannon in Wolff’s book, per the Guardian:

    “The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor — with no lawyers. They didn’t have any lawyers. Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately.”

    “The chance that Don Jr did not walk these jumos up to his father’s office on the twenty-sixth floor is zero.” (Note: It’s unclear what a “jumo” is, though Bannon has used the term “jamoke” in the past, so maybe that’s what he said here.)

    “You realize where this is going. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner. … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”

    “It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.”
    “They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.”

    And here is Trump’s full statement in response:

    Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican party.

    Now that he is on his own, Steve is learning that winning isn’t as easy as I make it look. Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country. Yet Steve had everything to do with the loss of a Senate seat in Alabama held for more than thirty years by Republicans. Steve doesn’t represent my base — he’s only in it for himself.

    Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was. It is the only thing he does well. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books.

    We have many great Republican members of Congress and candidates who are very supportive of the Make America Great Again agenda. Like me, they love the United States of America and are helping to finally take our country back and build it up, rather than simply seeking to burn it all down.

    Wolff’s book will be released on Tuesday.

    Moar popcorn!

    You’re kidding yourself.
    i know that neck of the woods well. The likelihood that the gun was licenced is zero, and the likelihood that the cops will take any action – about the same.

    Victoria’s police union has lashed out the lack of respect shown to police, after an officer was allegedly kicked in the head by a youth at Highpoint Shopping Centre. “This is what disrespect looks like, for our police, for our law and for the community,” Police Association secretary Wayne Gatt told the Herald Sun newspaper on Thursday.

    And the law itself could be setting the pace here. Those Allahphiles who will not stand for the Beak, Judge or whomsoever, straight down to the cells and rot there if Allah so wishes it.
