  1. I would love cars to become redundant and obsolete but it’s not going to happen,’ (Dame Edna) Turnbull says.”

    Why would anyone utter these words?

    “I would love cars to become redundant and obsolete but it’s not going to happen,’ (Dame Edna) Turnbull says.”

    Tell that to someone living in the regions where the next town is an hour’s drive away and there is no train or daily bus service.

    Perhaps the Turnbull Coalition Team will create travel by Rainbow Unicorns, powered by Pixie Dust…

    under tough carbon-emissions standards being actively considered by the Turnbull government

    The community survey mailout by my local member (who doesn’t appear to mention the Turnbull Coalition Winning Team) includes options which would make Lucy and Malcy cry.
    Icky things like more dams, new coal mines, uranium mining and nuclear energy.
    Concerns about carbon taxes, deficits and debt.
    The heresy that the private sector could have the greatest role in creating jobs.

    I must say I have new found respect for Minister Greg Hunt after revelations that he used inappropriate language in the presence of Katherine Mayor Fay Miller.

    Not that I necessarily approve of it but I really didn’t think he had it in him.

    Why can’t he use the same passion and straight forward talk in his appearances on Q&A instead of the squibbing mealy mouth sycophancy we see.

    Oh the misogyny!!!

  5. thefrolickingmole

    Oh dear, Im almost in agreement with Germaine Greer.

    Germaine Greer calls for punishment for rape to be reduced

    Shes echoing points i used to make before I was banned at the gruiniad, that you can either have huge penalties for rape, but also the rigorous defense and full court procedures, or you can lower the penalties to nuisance value and deal with it with a much reduced burden of proof.

    This would still leave available adding on GBH, weapons and ancillary charges for the more serious end of the spectrum.

    Rape trials were foundering and not ending in convictions as lawyers argued over the issue of consent, she said. Why not believe the woman and lower the penalty?

    “If we are going to say trust us, believe us, if we do say that our accusation should stand as evidence, then we do have to reduce the tariff for rape.”

    Greer acknowledged her thesis would be controversial. “It is moments like these, I can hear the feminists screaming at me, ‘you’re trivialising rape!’

    “Well I’ll tell you what … You might want to believe that the penis is a lethal weapon and that all women live in fear of that lethal weapon, well that’s bullshit. It’s not true. We don’t live in terror of the penis … A man can’t kill you with his penis.”

    She said that, in cases of obviously violent rape, the courts should concentrate on the violence which should attract bigger sentences, rather than having long trials in which women are humiliated for long periods.

    Rest assured the ABC will be kicking the Greg Hunt incident can down the road for days.

    Queue other woman spoken to in the same fashion by Greg Hunt.

    Can I hear possible calls for his resignation in the wind?

    Any bets on a Q&A question being formulated for airing next Monday?

  8. Chris

    Just seeing the anti-cyclist shit on Facechook gives me the screaming irrits.
    Some ordinary people (including my mates) think their resentment against sharing the road with people SOME of whom are pains in the arse entitles them to talk about killing their neighbours. Some really immature ones gloat when it actually happens.
    Talk about registration and taxation is all sweet, but cyclists are almost all licensed drivers too, paying rego on cars that are at home not filling the lanes, when the whingers apparently think sharing a lane with someone who isn’t armoured in steel is such an inconvenience.

  9. Chris

    Greg Hunt? The ABC were felching him when he was banning hunting trophies.

  10. Snoopy

    Turnbull’s Australia:

    The car industry has warned that some of Australia’s most popular cars will be taken off the market, or face significant price hikes, under tough carbon-emissions standards being actively considered by the Turnbull government.

    Trump’s America:

    President Donald Trump’s administration repealed a rule forcing states to comply with a policy monitoring greenhouse gas levels from tailpipes of American automobiles.
    The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) signed a final rule May 22 that eliminates a mandate requiring state agencies to establish emission targets, calculate their progress toward those targets, and determine a plan of action if they failed to make progress during a performance period.

    Just caught up with your evening post about the British tank crews stopping for a cuppa. Yes they did – because the tanks that were left were running on fumes and their last rounds of ammo. To have pushed ahead into the German lines would have been an act of the greatest military folly, and the commander who ordered the men into the action would have been cashiered.
    And I think it was Urquart who said ‘I had never seen the Germans fail to react in some way to any serious threat to their flanks.’

    Those filthy plebs and their disgusting mass produced, cheap, tasty meats..
    Dont they know only the wealthy should be able to eat beef?
    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/may/30/meat-and-fish-protein-multinationals-jeopardising-paris-climate-goals

    Meat and fish companies may be “putting the implementation of the Paris agreement in jeopardy” by failing to properly report their climate emissions, according to a groundbreaking index launched today.

    Three out of four (72%) of the world’s biggest meat and fish companies provided little or no evidence to show that they were measuring or reporting their emissions, despite the fact that, as the report points out, livestock production represents 14.5% of all greenhouse gas emissions.

    “It is clear that the meat and dairy industries have remained out of public scrutiny in terms of their significant climate impact. For this to change, these companies must be held accountable for the emissions and they must have credible, independently verifiable emissions reductions strategy,” said Shefali Sharma, director of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy European office.

    And the Turnmerkel signed us up for the Paris wankfest as well.
    The whole article is a hatchet job on protein producers, whay are lefties 90% likely to be some form of food fanatic?

  19. Mother Lode

    “Right to Try” loosens regulations on experimental drugs and treatments for individuals suffering from terminal diseases.

    This is madness.

    It treats people’s lives as if they themselves own them, rather than holding their lives in trust on behalf of the state which actually owns their lives, and as such is entitled to decide what people must do with their lives. And punish them when people do something with their life that the state does not approve of.

    It is like the way they calculate the ‘costs’ of smoking where they estimate the amount of taxation foregone if a person dies earlier.

    Barr was guilty of a really bad joke and just gave a b c an excuse not to renew the program for another season and I think they did not want to review it for another season because they were pissed that it was popular given it stood for everything against what the Liberal elites believe.

    Contrast with the writers of The Good Fight, whose TDS must have reached fever pitch.
    The main character thinks she sees a couple in the office building next door regularly having sex in ‘Trump masks’, her boss has to work with Republicans who are ‘barely functional’ in their roles.
    It’s more farcical than Their ABC’s output, and that takes some doing.

    Id take an opposing view, as it stands the feminist narrative is less protections for the accused (believe all women) and harsh penalties.
    I think we can agree that would be a disaster.

    A lower penalty/ lower evidence threshold would see more convictions, but as you state might not encompass the enormity of the damage done.
    Thats where cops would have to tack on bodily harm/use of a weapon etc to ensure greater sanction.

    As it stands the narrative is then 90% arent reported/few convictions etc because many are he said/ she said with no physical evidence available.

    Without being smart how would you propose to “improve” the legal processes around this, or is the balance about right now?

  26. Mother Lode

    Given their individual merits, if I was advising either Trumble or Tits in the next election, I would employ the same two pronged strategy regardless:

    1) Throughout the entire campaign, do not go out. Do not speak to the press. Do not let yourself be photographed. Actually, a medically induced coma would be a good move, in a reinforced concrete bunker 100 m under whatever serves as the Reserve Bank in Nigeria.

    2) Let the other guy talk. Do not engage. Do not respond. Do not do anything that takes the spotlight off him.

    That is it.

  27. Crossie

    Cars are the greatest thing that has ever happened for freedom.

    True. And that is why the left want to get rid of cars.

To have pushed ahead into the German lines would have been an act of the greatest military folly, and the commander who ordered the men into the action would have been cashiered.

    Those tanks also had no infantry support. There were two companies of German infantry along that road – a single lane road well above the level of the surrounding countryside – supplied with hand held anti tank weapons, and four tanks, without infantry, would have been nothing more then target practice.

    The role of the Centurion tanks, in Viet Nam, just about sums up this fvcked up country of ours. When the tanks were deployed, they couldn’t be serviced, or maintained, because the union laborers, who loaded those tanks for overseas service, from Australia, had stolen all the tools off every tank.

    And someone today, still alive, knows damn well who they were, yet refuse to own up.

    I notice Tony Abbott supports him and speaks to him, and praised him for his work efforts etc. just being a friend, cheering him up. The LNP has kind of thrown him out otherwise.

    Unfortunately, once Australia completes the rollout of their left’s meat assurance scheme, meat producers will have to present for inspection written management plans for all the left’s agendas, upon demand, and the compliance officers have right of entry to your house to demand to inspect your papers if that is where your office is.

    In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if they were holding hands while on patrol.

    Possible, I guess, but I doubt it.

    Liège Police Chief Christian Beaupere named the two female officers as 45-year-old Lucile Garcia and 53-year-old Soraya Belkacemi.

    He said Belkacemi was the mother of 13-year-old twin daughters who earlier lost their father, also a police officer.

    Garcia got married to her boyfriend of 14 years a month ago, and the pair had just become grandparents, their colleagues told Laaste Nieuws. About 10 years ago, The New York Post reported, she lost her 21-year-old son, Axel, in a car crash.

    Good on Morgan Freeman.
    He’s set to sue CNN for lying and (as per somebody above), lawyers say he has a rock solid case.
    Here’s what CNN did:

    On specific example of the harassment — and the core of Freeman’s defamation threat– was detailed by Melas, who said that when she’d interviewed Freeman at a press junket for the movie “Going in Style,” when she was six months pregnant. According to Melas, Freeman held on to her hand after a handshake while, “repeatedly looking her up and down,” as Freeman’s co-stars Alan Arkin and Michael Caine looked on. Freeman reportedly said to Melas, “I wish I was there,” and, “you are ripe.”

    Here’s the problem: there are concerns that Melas’ account is not that credible. During interview in question, cameras had been rolling. Freeman was recorded saying, “boy, do I wish I was there,” but there was no photo evidence for any of that “ripe” talk. Further, a letter sent to CNN Tuesday by Freeman’s attorney offers alleged context for the “wish I was there” statement that isn’t remotely inappropriate:

    “It is correct that, during the interview, Mr. Freeman said, ‘I wish I was there.’ …Mr. Freeman was in fact responding to a story that Michael Caine had just told.

    In that story, Mr. Caine had congratulated a woman on becoming pregnant, only to learn to Mr. Caine’s (and the woman’s) embarrassment that she was not pregnant. When Mr. Freeman said ‘I wish I was there,’ any reasonable viewer would have known that the ‘there’ to which he was referring was the conversation in which Mr. Freeman’s friend, Mr. Caine, had embarrassed himself. That is exactly what Mr. Freeman intended.

    I haven’t seen the Joyce interview but I did read somewhere that he discussed the ‘sexual breakdown’ of his marriage. It is sad when this happens in marriages, reflecting (sometimes, but not always) a failure of many women to recognize that sexual relationships form the foundation of the institution and that male sexuality differs to that of females, often in the urgency and frequency of the need. Contemporary feminism greatly encourages this failure of recognition, paradoxically by insisting that female sexuality must never give way to mere and quaintly antique ‘recognition of male needs’. It is a complicated thing, often confused with unnecessary ideas about sexual ‘performance’. Sexual interest in each other is about more than performance; it is about compassion and love too, in all circumstances of sickness, health, joy, need and stress. For each partner. A difficult navigation at the best of times, and one lost in ‘open’ marriages, philandering of all sorts, and divorce that carries no blame or shame. Separation of partners in time and place simply adds to the difficulty and enhances temptations.

    Well, I do sound like an old fuddy-duddy there, but wisdom of ages, peoples.

    I’ve posited the thesis before that the lycra fetish grew out of mandatory helmets.
    It’s an accepted fact that most people who’d like to ride a bike, even occasionally, don’t do so because they regard helmets as inconvenient, embarrassing, condescending and infantile. A certain number of people (men, mostly), decided to go all out the other way. So they contextualised and sportified the helmet by matching it with professional cycling attire. Voila: you’re no longer a helmeted dork in trousers and cuffs on your way to work; you’re a full-fledged sportsman. They went from there and never looked back (figuratively and literally – given how many of them ended up as road pancakes).

    Anyone applying fir a driver’s license should first have to do two years on a bicycle, and then another two years on a motorcycle (WITH LOG BOOKS) before being allowed to even start learning to drive a car.

    This would weed out most people and there would be a lot less cars on the road, also the idiots would kill themselves before they get the opportunity to kill other people. More people would catch the bus so that’s going to make the traffic more manageable.

    Bus drivers would need to pass additional requirements. Every bus driver would first have to demonstrate they can safely rule a third world South American state for a minimum of six months without serious incident, and only then would they be allowed into a bus. That should fix things up!

  116. And the dozens of other cyclists keeping left must be punished for it.

    Love is grand and all that, but I hope Vikki Campion realises that if he does it with her, he can do it to her, and that past behaviour is the best predictor of future behaviour.

    Natalie Joyce’s obvious and publicly-expressed sense of betrayal and hurt should probably be factored into this discussion a little more than it is.

    Thinking of weddings, here’s one:

    The Bride and the Tide.

    You all know that I enjoy health walks around our neighbourhood, and one of my favorites is to walk to Neilson Park, just beyond Vaucluse house. It is a bushland peninsula popular throughout Sydney, and certainly the Eastern Suburbs, as a picnic spot with a netted harbor area for swimming. One late afternoon recently I strolled in and came across a wedding; not altogether unusual here. The bride was having her picture taken on the beach and as the sun was close to setting she wanted a romantic shot of the water glistening behind her. Crowned with elaborately coiffed dark hair, she was quite a large bride actually, some might unkindly point to a BMI well into the obesity range. Her dress was a floss of white tulle, puffing from her approximate waistline, and the shorter underskirt consisted of two front cutaways which showed an occasional ample thigh as she moved. Which she did then, quickly, as the incoming tide overtook her up to her knees.

    Fuck! she yelled out, and again, Fuck! My dress is all wet! And my fuckin’ hair’s falling down, information which started a ribald shouted conversation with her bridesmaids and supporters up on the pathway above the beach. Their accents were broad ‘ethnic’ Australian, as was their general appearance. Encouraged by her courtiers, her hair now fallen into wild gypsy style, and having moved beyond the tide, the bride approached closer to the rather dapper floral-waistcoated bridegroom, silhouetting both of them alongside the water. The bride then delicately lifted her tulle up and holding her cutaway skirts apart in a bubble of tulle, started thrusting her yearning thighs, thankfully exposed only to the groom, in some simulated sex expertly captured by the photographer. Clutching her wet satin shoes, the still yelling and gesticulating bride then walked past me, sitting on the steps, and caught my eye.

    Good luck, I said to them both, we and all laughed. I meant it too.

    Australia’s new supercar to be tested in SA

    Business SA chief executive Nigel McBride said ZF Lemforder, and its associated investment group Fusion Capital, wanted a 400-bus contract from the State Government to underpin its Brabham investment.

    “The critical mass of the bus contract would underpin Fusion’s plans for the Brabham supercars and allow other niche projects, including electric vehicles, to become a reality here,” he said.

    US-based Carnegie Mellon University, an international leader in autonomous vehicle technologies, put a five-year, $25 million plan to the former State Government two years ago. The plan forecast up to 3000 jobs would be created in IT and manufacturing and research collaborations between Pittsburgh in the US and in Adelaide. The plan found no traction, but is a worthy proposal to re-visit.

    British billionaire Sanjeev Gupta is also considering building an electric car manufacturing hub in South Australia but he is facing hurdles in his negotiations to secure parts of Holden’s infrastructure in Adelaide’s north.

    I think so too, calli, mainly because I find it very hard to accept the idea that Vikki Campion was or indeed is a victim of anything except her own impulsiveness.

    Coerced abortion is a real thing; I’ve seen it happen a lot, and it’s very hard to do much about it. And I don’t doubt that some staffer said exactly that – make the baby go away, or the media will come after you.

    However, I find it hard to believe that the baby was ever in danger of being aborted, because this baby was going to secure Joyce for Campion on a more permanent basis, one way or another. The fact that the sex of the baby was known and bruited around in the media from fairly early on – the Son He Always Craved – was an indication of this.

    Sorry but that is preposterous and belies the fact that the chances of being killed or injured as a percentage of total journeys is minuscule.

    Far better to ban cyclists from anything from dedicated bike tracks; hipsters and hobby cyclists don’t need to be on the road, in the inner city, in Melbourne anyhow they can take a tram and for leisure riders get out of here! Motorcyclists can continue to take their chances, I would never ever ride a motorcycle, neither would most women (that do the grocery shopping and ferry children and parents here there and everywhere).

    Keep pumping 125,000 extra people into Melbourne and Sydney every year, more and more crowded roads are inevitable.

  148. Mother Lode

    I have heard the argument about cyclists generally also paying registration and other car related imposts so they have a right to do their thing on the road.

    Paying rego does not permit you to do whatever you want on the road. It gets you the right to use the roads in a certain way. You can’t set up a tent in one lane. And three is no way they get an entitlement to the road that overrules other people’s entitlement to the road.

    Personally I find it annoying in peak hours to have to queue up while the cars ahead have all to carefully go around a couple of cyclists.

    Also when they stop and have a cup of coffee but aren’t dead. I could almost forgive them the coffee otherwise.

    But isn’t there a law about slow moving vehicles and obstructing traffic? I wouldn’t know because I gauge my speed.

    Anyway, it is a matter of establishing what is permitted and not continuously indulging pedalling demographic at the expense of the more numerous just-want-to-get-to-work or just-want-to-get-home demographic.

    Joseph went on to say “Australia is one of the most tolerant countries in the world and I am so lucky to live here.”
    Actually, no.
    No he didn’t say that.
    But, of course, that is implicit in what he is saying.

    Natalie Joyce’s obvious and publicly-expressed sense of betrayal and hurt should probably be factored into this discussion a little more than it is. I know she’s the embarrassing Banquo’s ghost here in the otherwise delightful story of Twu Wuv, but her side of things is definitely worth looking at more closely.

    True Philippa.
    I don’t have a problem with the paid interview, per se.
    It is no different to a sitting pollie righting a book and trousering $150k in royalties.
    But anyone with an ounce of decency wouldn’t flaunt their TwuWuv in front of the cameras after having walked out on his family. That is really taking the salt-shaker to the wounds.

    I find it hard to believe that the baby was ever in danger of being aborted, because this baby was going to secure Joyce for Campion on a more permanent basis, one way or another.

    Certainly. Just because I stand up for a second go doesn’t mean I know nothing of betrayal and hurt.
    Oh I do. In spades. Don’t get me started on being a dumped deserted wife, left with two children under three in my early thirties for a younger, more intellectual, more classy and more feminist (!) version.

    Natalie Joyce will survive it, and pull through stronger. She’ll never forget the anguish though, the sheer humiliation and pain of all the destroyed dreams and lost hopes. Oh no. At least Barnaby stuck around while his children grew up.

    Perhaps that makes the pain even worse though.

    One issue with the cycling debate is that the use of the road system for recreation rather than transportation. Not saying that the former is wrong but I don’t see that it has the same claim to legitimacy as the latter. Especially where it involves a wilful refusal to use dedicated bike paths and lanes.

  182. Philippa Martyr

    But people think about the relationship purely in terms of a ‘good catch’ don’t they?

    notafan, every cliche in the book is present here in large letters, and it’s very hard to see the two of them as anything other than – as I said yesterday – a road-company Paolo and Francesca.

    It’s also been interesting to see Barnaby Joyce’s tendency to blame anyone but himself for his problems. This should definitely be noted by Vikki Campion (and her family) for future reference – although he has already thrown her under a bus twice in public, so it’s hard to know how much more warning she would need.

    People who cheat on their partners demonstrate two things: a sense of entitlement, and poor impulse control. It doesn’t matter who they are, or what they’re paid. Cheating is not inevitable, by any means. There are plenty of people in ‘sexless marriages’ or other unhappy and lonely arrangements, who manage to get some couples therapy, and/or arrive at the conclusion that divorce would be the best option, all without cheating.

  183. Notafan;

    Rape trials were foundering and not ending in convictions as lawyers argued over the issue of consent, she said. Why not believe the woman and lower the penalty?

    Because when you’re innocent of rape, a lowered penalty is not justice?
    (Yes I know you weren’t the person who said it, but that statement is absolutely staggering in it’s stupidity.)
    Look, I may be a cranky old fart at the moment, but imagine the scenario:
    Judge: “We can’t find you guilty of the murder of your spouse, but the witness who saw you in Ulladulla at the time of the murder, 2970 km away doesn’t exactly have a stellar record when it comes to the truth. How about instead of twenty years in the slammer we just give you ten, and call it quits?”
    Defendant: “I don’t bloody think so, Your Honour.”
    Judge: “How about seven years and two years for good behaviour?”

  190. Peter Campion

    Assorted howling-outrage-monkey outbursts from TheirABC and Channel Nein overwhelmed my capacity to obey my wife’s instruction to just shut the fvck up. So I told News Corp some home truths – with thanks to our more inspirational Cats …

    * Baanaby received no money for the Channel 7 interview. It went via Vikki, (a private citizen), to a trust account for Sebastian’s future health and education. My wife is the trustee.

    * Lieboral Minister for Women Kelly O’Dwyer should give herself a double uppercut from a running start for embarrassing women and Lieboral voters everywhere by parroting unresearched, anti-conservative, ABC-luvvie groupthink about Baanaby’s new family. That the Lieboral Minister for Women thinks it’s OK to endlessly harass a young mother shows how completely disconnected the Lieborals have become from reality.

    * This same disconnect is very evident at TheirABC, where a news bulletin yesterday morning that lead with the ‘VikBaa and the six-week-old VB Kid’ story then veered across to sympathetically agreeing with Julianne Mitchell of the Heart Foundation about how women need additional care and attention in the twelve weeks post-birthing. FFS!!! It would be bloody hard to imagine a less self-aware public broadcaster.

    * Ditto News Corps’ Susie O’Brien and a range of other self-declared but un-self-aware “feminists”. How is it OK to ignore the woman, the newborn baby, the need for bonding, to establish breast-feeding, to reduce external pressures in this? How dare these people deign to lecture us on “feminism” when they’ll happily rip apart a sister who should be front and centre for their fvcken support! They demean what worthwhile messages there are in feminism.

    * As a newbie journo at the Tablelander a decade or so ago, Vikki single-handedly squeezed an extra million dollars in funding for the Atherton Hospital out of the government – and in the process was banned from the hospital buildings and grounds by its manager. She has done more for local people than most young mothers but that is entirely disregarded as the media and pundits howl their jealous outrage that she made a windfall for her new baby. Their envy is palpable and sickening.

    * Baanaby and Vikki endured the media pushing the story of Sebastian Joyce into the limelight, so the media has no right whatsoever to be upset with Vikki taking money for it on Sebastian’s behalf. It seems the media think it’s OK to make money and score ideological points out of Baanaby and his family while prohibiting them making money and scoring ideological points out of the media.

    * This is the story of Sebastian Joyce. If he hadn’t been somewhat unexpectedly conceived there’d have been no story. Politicians of all stripes have affairs all the time – with staffers, with constituents and even with journalists (think Shorten, Albanese and Burke). The unspoken rule was that it wasn’t newsworthy. However the story of a baby who wasn’t aborted, whose mother and father took the mature, ethical and caring decision to love and nurture him, is newsworthy. Such a sad indictment of our society. Because it is Sebastian’s story, my daughter very responsibly directed the interview proceeds into a trust account for his future health and education. Regardless of what happens with his parents, Sebastian’s future is now much brighter financially because of that interview.

    * Regardless of what PM Talkbull thinks, the ABC is a socialist outfit that detests all conservatives.

    * Channel Nein didn’t lose a bidding war with Seven because the story wasn’t offered to anyone. Seven had the idea to explore the story and made Vikki an offer for the privilege, which she accepted. Nein’s negativity is a fat, festering bunch of sour grapes because it wasn’t their idea. When they belatedly made an offer it was 40% bigger, but far too late.

    * Now I’ve been plenty cranky about some of Baanaby’s decisions in recent times: public ones supporting Talkbull’s enviro-nonsense; and private ones for media gaffes regarding my daughter. To keep things in perspective, however, Baanaby’s decisions are far better than nearly all of his contemporaries’ decisions. He’s one of the best of a pretty woeful bunch. One thing we can be sure of with Baanaby, he’s not some polished actor simply mouthing lines fed to him by a shadowy organisation in the back rooms. He’s the genuine article.

    * Unlike Talkbull, Baanaby understands coal-powered electricity is vital to our future and that the climate alarmists are wrong about CO2. Vested interests would love to destroy him. By the way, is Talkbull’s son still heavily invested in Big Wind? But people are outraged because Baanaby’s newborn son gets a payday from Big Media?

    Talk about registration and taxation is all sweet, but cyclists are almost all licensed drivers too, paying rego on cars that are at home not filling the lanes, when the whingers apparently think sharing a lane with someone who isn’t armoured in steel is such an inconvenience.

    Then why is it that most cyclists I come across clearly think they own the fking lane. The roads were designed and built for motor vehicles. Travelling on them is difficult enough these days without having to navigate past entitled cyclists in traffic who expect decades old driving norms to change just for them. That’s the environment cyclists venture out in so they should get used to it and stfu with their constant whining.

    Dear ,

    As a result of changes to Australian GST law, on 1 July 2018 Amazon’s international shopping options for Australian customers will change.

    While we regret any inconvenience this may cause, from 1 July we will be redirecting Australian customers from our international Amazon sites to amazon.com.au where you can shop for products sold by Amazon US on the new Amazon Global Store, available today. We have taken this step to provide our customers with continued access to international selection and allow us to remain compliant with the law which requires us to collect and remit GST on products sold on Amazon sites that are shipped from overseas.

    Amazon Global Store will allow Australian customers to shop on amazon.com.au for over four million items that were previously only accessible on amazon.com. This selection is in addition to the more than 60 million products that are already available on amazon.com.au across 23 categories, including books, fashion, toys, and electronics.

    To welcome you to amazon.com.au, and thank you for choosing to shop with us, we are offering you a $20 voucher to redeem against your next purchase on amazon.com.au of items sold and shipped by Amazon AU. Just include your unique promotional code below at checkout when purchasing eligible items (see full terms and conditions below).

    Thank you for choosing to shop with Amazon.

    I vaguely remember Boy on a Bike. I wish I could commute by bike but I have been FIFO for way too many years, and only get to cycle sometimes now. Cycled around Bordeaux with some wine and cycle loving neighbours a while back, that was great even with FIFO belly. Drivers in other countries seem to be aware they have a duty not to kill their neighbours on the road even at the cost of dropping below the speed limit and go a bit wider.

    The whining I notice is not from cyclists, but car drivers who object to sharing the road with cyclists.
    I uphold the complaints they make where justified, and cyclists (like me) who willingly break the law to achieve separation from cars should pay the fine or do the time that entails.

    “Roads are designed and built for motor vehicles ” you say Makka; so when I legally drive a mob of sheep along one, the road is not there for that? When your family wlaking the kids and dog to school cross a road and some entitled nitwit in a Range Rover drives so as to endanger them, the family have no right to be there because the road is designed for the vehicle??
    Ooookay.

    Trump approach risks disaster, warns architect of previous North Korea talks

    Donald Trump’s approach to peace talks with North Korea has a high risk of “disastrous” results, according to a former senior Japanese diplomat who led breakthrough negotiations with the previous Kim Jong-il regime.

    Peter, you are a good dad, and you will stick up for your daughter in this stoush, no matter what. I get it.

    It doesn’t alter the fact that your daughter had an affair with someone else’s husband, and that your future son-in-law cheated on his wife to have that affair. This is a bottom line that many of us struggle to get past, having seen the effects of this kind of thing on the discarded wife, close up. Some of our lady Catsters have been the discarded wife. You may choose to dismiss this as having been going on since time immemorial, and it has been, but it doesn’t reduce the hurt and humiliation at all.

    This is an awful mess for you to be in, because you’re a private citizen and you love your daughter. I am sorry it’s turned out this way. Hopefully they’ll get legally married at some point, and Barnaby can start proving to you that he IS the real deal as far as your daughter is concerned.

    It was then, and still it about Joyces moralistic stance on SSM while conducting an on-going extramarital affair, his complicity in arrangements to find alternative employment for his mistress, and the cover-up that they and others were part of to keep it all from the public during the New England by-election campaign.

    A 2 hour ride, I presume?

    Foreplay alone should be an hour, am I right ladies?

    Regardless of what PM Talkbull thinks, the ABC is a socialist outfit that detests all conservatives.

    Unlike Talkbull, Baanaby understands coal-powered electricity is vital to our future and that the climate alarmists are wrong about CO2. Vested interests would love to destroy him. By the way, is Talkbull’s son still heavily invested in Big Wind? But people are outraged because Baanaby’s newborn son gets a payday from Big Media?

    Pass on my best to B and the family.

    Had the Beetrooter knocked up the local barmaid it would have been dead and buried in a couple of weeks.

    That’s bullshit. The leftwing pricks would have crucified B even if he had knocked up clementine ford.

    Roppolo can just sit this world cup out and save his money for Qatar 2022.

    It was then, and still it about Joyces moralistic stance on SSM while conducting an on-going extramarital affair …

    An extramarital affair diminishes not a wittle the logic and truthfulness of the adulterer’s opposition to two homosexuals pretending to be married. That’s like saying a man cannot insist on the reality of the earth’s gravity if he’s having an affair.

    No connection there at all.

    That’s bullshit. The leftwing pricks would have crucified B even if he had knocked up clementine ford.

    I think the ‘leftwing pricks’ argument in this matter is a ship that has sailed, and not only sailed, but was last seen disappearing over the horizon while spectacularly on fire.

    ‘The story is a story because she was a political staffer on a six figure salary ‘
    Always seems excessive when you quote a six figure sum rather than 100,000.
    The reader assumes six figure to be slightly less than a seven figure sum.

    Oops – looks like I missed one – list of items/activities identified on this thread in the last 24 hours that collectivists want banned:

    Tobogganing

    Plastic straws
    Cars
    Eating meat

    Again, FFS.

    All things are connected in the lefty universe. It’s just one big fucking connectivity.
