    Brown resigned in January 1988 for misleading there house, so it would have been in Old Parliament House.
    The wifey had a relatively successful career as a PR consultant. Reportedly, her schtick was: ‘If you give me the job of publicising your function, I guarantee I can get a Federal Minister to open it for you”.

    Sounds like she wielded a pretty good stick.

    ALP/MSM finally don’t want the solution for voters to decide.

  4. Snoopy

    There’s nothing for it but to ban the words ‘solution’ and ‘final’ from public discourse thereby ensuring that they never again appear contiguously. It’s the precautionary principle, people.

  5. Roger

    Anning’s speech was reportedly written by staffer Richard Howard, whom Pauline Hanson describes (derisively) as a “propaganda specialist”.

  6. jupes

    MSM invented the WAP ‘quote’.

    They have also been successful in demonising the last sensible immigration policy we had.

    Multi-culturalism is a policy that has clearly failed in every country it has been implemented. There isn’t one country that isn’t worse off that has imported immigrants from the third-world. Not one.

    Yet politicians, the MSM and other assorted idiots still carry on as if multi-culturalism is a good thing. FMD how brain-dead are these morons?

    Sounds like she wielded a pretty good stick.

    Wife was supposed to have thrown a hissy fit at some Canberra bunfight, at her place card, describing her as “Mrs John Brown.” “I am not Mrs. John Brown. I am (whatever her name was) a successful businesswoman, and a person in my own right.”

    The hostess looked at her coldly. “If you weren’t ” Mrs John Brown,” you certainly wouldn’t be here.”

    He wasn’t even proposing a “final solution” to the problem. Not only was the language used jarring, it made no sense whatsoever.

    All very suspect. One can only conclude Anning is in cahoots with the immigration ponzi or has been set up to fail.

    If he suddenly has a few apartments in Sydney appear on the parliamentary register, please let me know.

    In July 1987, Brown entered cabinet with the expanded portfolio of Minister for Arts, Sport, the Environment, Tourism and Territories, which he held until his resignation in January 1988 for misleading the House,[6] in response to a question from Neil Brown regarding the assessment of tenders for the Australian Pavilion at Expo ’88, which suggested possible impropriety.

    Yeah right. DL is responsible for how the MSM perceive a speech given in Parliament written by someone else and spoken by someone else. He is also responsible for Anning having final input too.

    Some of you are just anti-libertarian trigglypuffs.

    Any lingering problem requires a “final solution”. Land rights are one, as are mineral rights. It isn’t equivocal to the Wannsee Conference either.

    On the other hand, holding third parties once or twice removed accountable for the actions of others might be valid. Let’s ask Archbishop Wilson about that.

I’m no fan of coincidences. Not like this. That speech was a setup and quite possibly Anning didn’t even know it.

    Mehreen Faruqi to become first female Muslim senator amid Fraser Anning outrage

    Faruqi is due to become a Greens senator for New South Wales this afternoon during a joint sitting of the state parliament, where she will be chosen to fill the casual vacancy left by the outgoing Lee Rhiannon.

    Faruqi told Guardian Australia Anning’s speech had thrown millions of decent Australians under the bus in a “desperate attempt to remain relevant and reignite a long gone racist policy”.

    Do you care to explain how the evilest man in Parliament (TM) also tricked Pauline into hiring Howard?

    Also, note the way Pauline reacted versus Katter:

    “I back him 1000%” (BK)

    Temporary visa boom swamps Dutton’s permanent migration cuts

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-15/temporary-migrant-visa-blow-out/10117762

    International students, graduates and people on bridging visas are continuing to fuel Australia’s immigration boom.

    The number of temporary visa holders in Australia in June increased by 107,000 in the past year — a rise of 5 per cent according to statistics released on Friday afternoon.
    These new visa holders easily eclipse the Government’s 20,000 cut to permanent visas over the same period.
    The number of bridging visas — now at 176,000, having grown by almost 40,000 in the past year — was described by Abul Rizvi, a senior official in the immigration department during the 2000s, as “unheard of”.
    “Bridging visas were introduced as a means of dealing with a situation of keeping a person legal while we processed their visa — it was a stopgap measure and that’s how it should be viewed,” he told the ABC.
    “If bridging visas are increasing in number, what it says is that the immigration department is not able to process the visas quickly enough.”

    Gupta’s billion-dollar renewables program the ‘ultimate liberator’ for Australian industry

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-15/gupta-launches-1-billion-renewables-program-in-whyalla/10122036

    The first project in a US$1 billion nationwide renewable energy program has been launched near Whyalla, in South Australia, as part of a push to bring down Australia’s electricity prices.

    The 280-megawatt Cultana Solar Farm will begin construction in early 2019, employing 350 workers during construction and providing greater energy security to the Whyalla Liberty OneSteel steelworks.
    Billionaire Sanjeev Gupta said the investment by his company, SIMEC ZEN Energy, formed part of his firm belief there was a great future for energy-intensive industries through a transition to more renewable energy.

    re Australian link to ANC farm expropriation list –

    The two farms in Limpopo are not used for ag but for hunting safaris, expropriation won’t compromise food security. Nor will it be distributed to poor Africans. Most likely it will be given to ANC allies in Limpopo who can then negotiate royalties with the Australian coal miners who want to mine the deposit there. May also be a political sweetener to the SA+Aust mining interests to reduce public criticism of expropriation.

    Hope and Change in an Alabama Coal Mine

    …During the Obama years, Ellis said, “we were watching our hours,” trying to squeeze more productivity from fewer workers. There were few opportunities for overtime pay: “We want overtime, and in the last year, we’ve seen more overtime.” For Ellis, that means more opportunities for vacation with his two 6-year-old grandchildren: In May, he and his wife took them to Disney World for five days. And the week after we spoke, he and his wife were headed down to Gulf Shores for their own trip. “It’s all just allowed for a little extra money,” he told me, “and it goes a long way.”

    Everyone I spoke to for this story, whether at the mine itself or within local businesses, seemed to express sincere excitement about voting in November’s midterm elections. That they’ll vote for Republicans is largely unsurprising—it’s Alabama, after all. But their enthusiasm may signal higher-than-usual turnout for a midterm election in the region.

    “For this area, when you see you’ve elected someone who cares about our industry, it makes you want to get out there in November,” Ellis said. “You don’t have to encourage people around here to vote right now.”

  54. calli

    He was using the words with their ordinary meanings.

    Can’t have that!

    It’s a neat trick, isn’t it? Someone says something you don’t like, and even if it’s true (especially if it’s true) the words themselves must be examined minutely for traces of Something Else. Never mind the speaker’s intent or the argument itself, whether it is just or true, just the form in which it is made. In that way it can be twisted, the argument dispensed with and the speaker mocked.

    That only applies to one’s enemies, of course. One’s own words must be taken at face value only. To do otherwise is considered grossly unfair.

    Lewis talks about this in Screwtape (Dover can probably pin down the chapter). He thinks it’s demonic, and I agree.

  59. Makka

    From 2017. The Uniparty will continue to defy to will of the vast majority of Australians. They are selling us out.

    Anning was only stating facts about the electorate’s will that are already in the public domain. The Uniparty will fight tooth and nail to suppress public opinion and divert attention away from their population/immigration ponzi. Too much by too many elites – Banks, Industry, Govts, Councils, Business etc – has been invested in the ponzi to stop it. We must become a third world shithole Big Australia to be successful.

    Three quarters of Australians believe the country doesn’t need any more people and almost half support a ban on Muslim immigration.

    A survey of more than 2000 people, by the Australian Population Research Institute, also found 54 per cent want a reduction in the annual migrant intake.

    The independent organisation claims the results are driven by a rapid change in Australia’s ethnic and religious make-up and concerns over quality of life.

    ‘Australian voters’ concern about immigration levels and ethnic diversity does not derive from economic adversity,’ academics Katharine Betts and Bob Birrell wrote in a report based on the survey.

    ‘Rather, it stems from the increasingly obvious impact of population growth on their quality of life and the rapid change in Australia’s ethnic and religious make-up.’

    Some 54 per cent want Australia to cut its annual immigrant intake of about 190,000 people and 48 per cent backed a partial ban on Muslim immigration.

    The strongest support for the partial ban came from One Nation voters (89 per cent), with more than 50 per cent of Liberal voters agreeing and just over a third of Labor supporters.

    ‘The willingness to take a tough, discriminating stance on Muslim immigration is not limited to a small minority, but extends to almost half of all voters,’ the report said.

    The words “final solution” are not a Famous Phrase.
    They’re just two English words.
    In Canberra today, it’s like Hollywood’s old war movies – with folks believing the Germans spoke Her Majesty’s. Die Endlösung der Judenfrage (the final solution to the J-wish Problem) was the German phrase used by Nazis. Wiki has this to say about it:

    Historians have shown that the usual tendency of the German leadership was to be extremely guarded when discussing the Final Solution. Euphemisms were, in Mark Roseman’s words, “their normal mode of communicating about murder.”

    Which should come as no surprise to anyone listening to Malcolm Turnbull and the ALP talk about abortion and euthanasia. The timing as regards the latter Nazi policy and this parliament marks a new zenith in hypocrisy. Euphemisms are their normal mode of communicating about murder.

    I would hazard a guess there’s lots of folk who don’t know the origin of “final solution” phrase. After all the Holocaust was near 80 years ago. It’s not a main topic of conversation, is it.

    We have seen what happens when muslims come to power, it makes the holocaust look like a mild irritant.

    Sex slavery, sharia punishments, vile torture, mass slaughter, horrific ritualised public executions.

    The nazis had nothing on islam.

    The cost of Energy and Immigration, arguably the 2 biggest issues in Australian politics today (taxes are up there with these 2).Energy and Immigration policies have screwed future Australia over within hours of each other. I’m no fan of coincidences. Not like this. That speech was a setup and quite possibly Anning didn’t even know it.

    Government wealth transfer, government debt and the hidden unemployed all over the place are also important but no one wants to talk about. Anning did have an attempt but probably won’t go far. You never know.

    Hopefully Anning comes back and does the “Just Like Greece I Tell You! And Then Venezuela!” speech which at least could be a useful mark in the sand for when stuff starts to go properly wrong. Short memory I suppose, no one in Parliament is worried about 10 years ahead, sheesh, that’s more than one election.

    I’ll post again the Econtalk podcast on Mao and China, astounding stuff. Just the “Great Leap Forward” and they give a conservative estimate of 45 million dead, mostly from starvation or indirect results of starvation. Socialism comes in various forms, and they are all nasty, but Chairman Mao must be remembered as the biggest mass murderer in human history (for the time being at any rate).

    Margo Kingston once used that exact term on Radio National with Phatty Adams.

    I remember that.

    Margot used to be a fruit loop but is now a centrist in modern Australia.

    She has Earl Grey and scones with Janet Howard every Wednesday in the front room.

    So if Chelsea thinks that killing babies saves money, then how does immigration make money?
