    For a moment there… well done Farmer Gez. Anyway, the government of South Australia is now a bank offering cheap loans for batteries that will take 40,000 homes off grid on top of massive subsidies for said batteries. The batteries of course will be recharged by solar panels, also subsidised. As per normal government banking practice the savings from buying a battery will be recouped in 13 years. And the battery has to be made in SA. Unfortunately the batteries are only going to last 10 years. Which, I think we’ll all agree, is a win-win. Just not for taxpayers.

    Nauru a ‘very pleasant island’: Abbott urges PM to hold firm on asylum seekers

    Tony Abbott has urged Scott Morrison to hold the line on asylum seekers and says Nauru is a “very, very pleasant island.”

    The former prime minister’s comments comes as a poll in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph showed almost 80 per cent of voters want children and their families transferred off the Pacific island’s detention centre.

    “The people on Nauru and Manus now are nearly all would-be economic migrants. And if we give them what they want, we get more of them. That is to say the boats will start up again,” he told 2GB’s Ray Hadley today.

    “Of course, kids off Nauru is a good slogan but it’s a dreadful guide for policy because if we can’t have kids on Nauru, just bring some kids with you and you automatically get to Australia.”

    Mr Abbott also said children on Nauru are “very well looked after.”

    ““Health services on Nauru for boat people are more extensive than the services a lot of regional towns get in Australia,” he said.

    Nauru is no hellhole by any means. I’ve been there. If you like living the tropics, it’s a very, very pleasant island.”

    Mr Abbott, who wrote in The Australian today calling for unity in the Liberal Party, also told 2GB that the Liberal Party was a “stronger, better team” under Scott Morrison’s leadership.

    “Whether you’re a Turnbull supporter or an Abbott supporter, we all need to back the team,” he said.

    “No government is absolutely perfect … but the Morrison Government is an infinitely better bet than the Shorten Labor Party which will be the most left-wing government in our history if we get it.

    “The right protested in Longman, they left protested in Wentworth but now we all need to get it out of our system and pull together … we are already a stronger, better team than we were a few months ago.”

    From the dead thread.
    Has The Guardian ever published a similar piece on Obama’s close relationship with convicted terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn?

    Ayers ghosted The Kenyan’s stamp on the western canon of great literary works. I’d also like The Grauniad to investigate how many times in eight years Ayers might have been ushered ,via the back door, into the White House to reminisce over a reefer or three about the good old days.

    What to make of this?

    More than half of West Australians support a tax on sugar-laden drinks blamed for rising rates of obesity in adults and children, a poll has found.

    Results from Cancer Council WA’s LiveLighter survey found that 57 per cent of people supported a sugary-drinks tax and 60 per cent favoured restricting the sale of sugary drinks in government-owned buildings such as hospitals and public recreation centres.

    Either more than half of West Australians are wowsers or you can’t trust Cancer Council WA.

    My money’s on the latter.

    What to make of this?

    More than half of West Australians support a tax on sugar-laden drinks blamed for rising rates of obesity in adults and children, a poll has found.

    Results from Cancer Council WA’s LiveLighter survey found…..

    Livelighter:

    In 2011, the WA Department of Health contracted Heart Foundation WA, in partnership with Cancer Council WA, to run a new public health education program.

    Big Government funds Big NFP to do something Big Government should arguably be capable of doing itself.

    OR

    Big NFP could stump up some $$ and run their own campaigns.

    But no. The real intention as in so many cases is to get Big NFP ( or Big Green for enviro issues ) to agitate and lobby the government that funds it to bring in policies that Big Government wants but lacks any democratic mandate to initiate themselves.

    Now they can seek to cheerfully tax and regulate consumer behaviour the New Puritans of the Protected Classes frown upon, and claim ‘The Science says…’ and ‘Public Opinion is calling for….’

    Public Opinion:

    Notes on data:

    1 Results from LiveLighter’s WA Weekly Surveillance Study, which conducted a cross-sectional survey or ( sic ) WA adults between 9th April and 30th September 2018.

    Without seeing the survey data, the trick is of course to focus the ‘sampling’ in a place like Freo and then jiggle the data to extrapolate for the rest of The Deplorables.

    Rinse. Repeat.

    Eventually find yourself with Big Government taking direct control of personal consumption;
    ask how it happened ?;
    be pointed to ‘surveys’.

    Ballot boxes and electoral mandates have not delivered the world sought by the Protected Classes and must be rendered effectively pointless.

    This will give you sow idea of the quality of ACT politick and politicians

    https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/canberra-s-hurtful-place-names-may-disappear-after-review-20181028-p50cih.html

    Cats may remember how Bec Cody was enraged back in early 2017 when she discover the the toilet in a South Coast had tiles depicting Indigenous people. She also considers herself a ‘legend’ because when Federal Election polling day in 1993 fell on the same day as her wedding, she had her self photographed voting in her wedding dress, an obvious, clumsy and narcissistic piece of self promotion. She is reportedly a CFMMEU stooge, she rides around on a Harley and she is no longer married to her 1993 spouse. Her contribution to policy development appears to be zilch

    Never the less, she now want an audit of the names of suburbs and streets in Canberra because she has letters that had ‘expressed pain that Canberra still named places after people who had acted in ways that were criminal, reprehensible and abhorrent’.

    Oddly, for such a shameless, albeit cac-handed, self-promoter, she declined to identify candidates for name changes, ‘saying she didn’t want particular places to become the focus of a community discussion and audit'[??]

    To my mind, any audit of objectionable place names ought to start with the of Caldwell, named after the ‘two wongs don’t make white’ Labor racist.

    Lefties, “the children must suffer so our pieties arent interrupted”

    These shitheads would rather kids be abused, neglected or damaged by long term state care than adopted to loving families.
    They are evil bastards.
    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/oct/27/fears-of-another-stolen-generation-after-new-south-wales-move-on-foster-care
    The New South Wales government has quietly tabled a piece of legislation that, if passed, will have a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of children taken into state care every year.

    The government says the bill, which was tabled on Tuesday night, will ensure a permanent home for every child within two years, so they are not bounced around the out-of-home-care system for years on end. But critics say NSW is “walking open-eyed towards another stolen generation”.

    The bill’s appearance came as a surprise to organisations in the sector, which said they were “stunned” at the lack of transparency and public dialogue on a policy that goes to the “heart and soul of our society”.

    ….
    It has refused to rule out adoption as a last resort for Aboriginal children, which has alarmed the Aboriginal Child, Family and Community Care State Secretariat (AbSec), the peak body for Aboriginal child and family services in NSW.

    Aboriginal children are only 5% of under 18s in NSW but they make up 37% of all young people in care.

    “Most people don’t have an intimate knowledge of the child protection system and I understand that the idea of adoption and a ‘forever family’ sounds really nice,” the AbSec chief executive, Tim Ireland, told Guardian Australia earlier this year.

    “The reality is, Aboriginal children already have a forever family – their extended family, kinship network and community back home.


    The NSW Greens MP David Shoebridge said “having now read the government’s proposed law in detail, I am deeply troubled.”

    “For families struggling with chronic poverty, homelessness and the often associated mental health and addiction problems, two years will rarely be enough time to get their lives in order,” Shoebridge said.

    “Waiting times for public housing in this state are over six years, and it can take more than 12 months to even get admitted to a drug rehabilitation program.”

    He said the Greens were drafting amendments to “unambiguously protect Aboriginal children and families from this damaging plan”.
    “Just five years after prime minister [Julia] Gillard apologised on behalf of the Australian people for people affected by forced adoption, NSW is set to make forcibly adopting kids official policy,” he said, “It’s like we’ve learned nothing from history.”

    Baby born with syphilis in South Australia for first time in 18 years

    ‘Extremely serious problem’
    The outbreak, which is believed to have started in an Aboriginal community in northern Queensland in 2011, has spread across four jurisdictions to include the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.
    Health Department figures show that to September 30, 1,184 cases had been diagnosed in affected areas in Queensland, 877 in the Northern Territory, 196 in Western Australia and 44 in South Australia.
    There have been up to 15 congenital syphilis cases diagnosed in neonates or infants that are attributed to the outbreak.
    Of these, up to seven babies have died.

    Australian Catholic bishop calls for women’s ordination & rejects the biblical image of the church as Bride of Christ (readers of C S Lewis’s essay ‘Priestesses in the Church’ will not be surprised), while labelling traditional Catholic men ‘reptilian’.

    Traditional Anglicans are only too familiar with these Judases in episcopal vestments. Be aware, Catholic friends, that these men are not promoted despite their heterodoxy but precisely because of it.

    Scroll-by Alert…Anecdote O’clock:

    Watched this one with the Good Lady Wife on SBS Catch Up last night*

    The Obesity Myth Season 1 Episode 2 — Eating Your Feelings

    Talking about the work done here at Alfred Health with close ups on some of the patients.

    The thesis of one of the docs there – who is apparently a world-class clinician in this sort of thing – is that some people can’t get sated.

    Their body is always craving more food. Something to do with carbs, hormones etc etc.

    Watching a girl who has already had one stroke talking affectionately to a plate of spuds is indeed suggestive of something going on.

    Assuming there is at least one cohort of the overweight whose bodies are tricking their brains – then indeed, taxation is not going to do a blind bit of good with what is like an addiction. If taxation worked – no one would be smoking or drinking booze.

    I will of course defer to the well-read health types like Mitch M on this, but to me it makes sense that there are some people whose bodies are out-of-step in a world with abundant cheap calories.

    * It quickly became uncomfortable viewing for me because I don’t like icky stuff like surgery and manky extremities. And I seem to have inherited a pre-disposition from my late grandmother that I find looking at the very overweight hard because all I can see is a pile of bad health.

    There aren’t tens of thousands of “loving families” lined up to take damaged often extremely difficult children from state care into their families forever.

    You literally have to pay people (often suspect) to do it for short periods of time currently.

    Abo children will not be touched by this law. It has nothing to do with them and the framework about cultural sensitivity when dealing with them is accepted by everyone . It’s about trafficking the children of the white welfare classes in a mass social engineering experiment (with a dash of real actual chikd trafficking on the side).

    Leftwing uk councils did exactly the samething starting in the late 1980’s.

    A search and rescue operation is underway off Indonesia after a Lion Air passenger aircraft was seen plunging into the water just 13 minutes after take off from Jakarta.

    A short time later a tugboat notified authorities it had spotted a plane crashing into the Tanjung Priok sea.

    National Search and Rescue Agency (Basarnas) spokesman Yusuf Latief told The Australian the Lion Air JT 6.10am (local time) flight from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang lost contact with air traffic controller at 6.33, 13 minutes after it took off from Soekarno Hatta Airport. It was scheduled to land at 7.20am (AEST 11.20am).

    “We suspect that the plane has crashed because a distress signal has been detected,” Mr Yusuf said.

    “A tug boat spotted what looks to be the crashed plane at 7.05am off the coast of Karawang, Bekasi.”

    Mr Yusuf said three rescue boats and a helicopter have been dispatched to the suspected crash site but “we still don’t know how many on board and whether there are any survivors”.

    The aircraft is believed to be a Boeing 737 — and aircraft that can seat as many as 172 passengers.

    Lion Air last made headlines when an aircraft missed the runway at Denpasar in 2013 and ended up in the water. All passengers and crew survived.

    Turnbull likes negative polling tweet as Morrison shrugs off Newspoll

    Scott Morrison has brushed off his descent into negative personal polling territory in today’s Newspoll after Malcolm Turnbull liked a tweet showing the Prime Minister’s numbers going down.

    For the first time in his nine weeks as prime minister, Mr Morrison’s dissatisfaction ratings are bigger than his satisfaction ratings at 44 per cent of voters disapproving of his performance compared to 41 per cent approving.

    “These things bounce around and that’s the case for all politicians. But it just doesn’t distract me from the job I have,” Mr Morrison told K Rock FM in Geelong.

    “When you become prime minister in the way that I did, I wasn’t planning for that to occur at that time, but when you have to step up for the leadership as I did, you just get on with the job and the people you’re trying to help.

    “I frankly don’t have the time to focus on those sorts of things.”

    The government is also facing a wipe-out at the next election according to Newspoll with Labor’s two-party-preferred lead over the Coalition increasing by one point to 54 per cent versus 46 for the government.

    Today’s Newspoll results would be concerning for most Coalition backers. But former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has liked a tweet which showed the preferred prime minister gap between Mr Morrison and Bill Shorten closing.

    Mr Turnbull appeared to remove his like of the Newspoll tweet later in the morning.

    Anthony Albanese said Mr Turnbull’s Twitter activity and reported delays for people trying to access the old age pension were signs the government needed a “mercy rule” to allow it to more easily call an early election.

    “It is quite extraordinary that people are having to wait to receive an aged pension,” the opposition infrastructure spokesman told reporters in Brisbane.

    “Now that we have this revelation today, we have Malcolm Turnbull is out there liking a tweet that Mr Morrison’s numbers have gone down in Newspoll … We have dysfunction and chaos wherever we look.

    “Perhaps it’s time to have a mercy rule in politics whereby things are so chaotic that the government just calls an election because if you can’t actually process a form for a pensioner who has turned pension age … this is an indictment of a government that simply is incapable of performing basic functions.”

    Mr Morrison still leads as preferred prime minister at 43 per cent of respondents, but that is down 2 points from the last Newspoll.

    The Opposition Leader’s preferred leader rating has gone up one point to 35 per cent.

    Opposition communications spokeswoman Michelle Rowland said Labor was not focused on Newspoll and would continue to roll out policies rather than being a “small target”.

    “We’re very focused on ensuring that we present ourselves as a credible alternative government,” she told Sky News “We will be prosecuting our case in the lead up to the next election which will be very close.”

    “A lot of people have given advice that the best thing Labor could do is be a small target and Bill Shorten expressly rejected that from the outset.”

    Meanwhile, Scott Morrison has demanded the competition watchdog take “action” on rising petrol prices.

    The Prime Minister said Australian Competition and Consumer Commissioner Rod Sims should be investigating why motorists are paying upwards of $1.60 a litre.

    “This one is a really tough problem because we have got a lot of issues pushing the prices up which are outside Australia, which are things that are outside of our control,” Mr
    “But I want some answers out of the ACCC, I mean they are the cop on the beat, they are the ones that we fund to go out and monitor why prices are moving up and down and how they are timed, that is their job, that is Rob Sims’ job, to make sure that all these petrol companies, these fuel companies do the right thing by customers.

    “So if they are not, he has the powers, he has the resources, to investigate them and I expect them to get on and apply the pressure, that is why we have an ACCC, it is to deal with that precise issue.”

    Mr Morrison said he gave more powers to the ACCC to take action on fuel companies when he was treasurer.

    “There are some things we can’t control, like what is happening with international oil prices and things like that, that is outside what any government can do, but we can ensure that the people selling it here behave,” he said.

    “I am expecting some action.”

    Earlier this month, Mr Sims said motorists were paying too much for petrol.

    “In our view, margins are two to three cents a litre too high,” Mr Sims said.

    “That’s $400-600 million — that’s a lot of money for Australian motorists.”

    Incompetent Culprit Or Plausible Patsy: Paul Craig Roberts On The Latest ‘Bomb’ Scare

    Stephen Lendman raises the question whether Sayoc is a real culprit or a patsy for an operation orhestrated for political reasons.

    …beginning on October 22, harmless mail bombs began to be delivered to prominent undemocratic Dem Trump critics.

    None exploded. No one was hurt, the mailings intended to sow fear, create alarm, and make headlines.

    They likely intended to influence the outcome of the November midterm elections, undemocratic Dem dark forces likely behind them, hoping to regain control of the House and/or Senate…

    This seems to me to be, at our present state of information, a legitimate question. If the security agencies and the Democratic National Committee were willing to orchestrate a fake ‘Russiagate’ scheme against Trump for political reasons, why not also a fake bomb attack on Democrats?

    Just as the presstitutes went along with “Russiagate” despite the absence of any evidence, RT reports that the US media is blaming “Trump’s ‘hateful rhetoric’ for the packages.”

    While driving I listened to a large part of the press conference, and the affair struck me as an orchestration. Every agency involved was present, from the Postal Service to the FBI and Secret Service, the directors of which praised the expert professional performance of their agencies in intercepting the bombs. It seemed to me overdone, especially in view of the FBI’s admission that they could not say that the bombs were functional. Why would a bomber send non-functional bombs?

    Indonesia’s biggest domestic carrier is a Third World airline in every sense:

    A [brand new!] Lionair Boeing 737-800 MAX, registration PK-LQP performing flight JT-610 from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang (Indonesia) with 178 people on board, was climbing out of Jakarta when the aircraft reached a maximum altitude of about 5400 feet, then lost height, radar contact was lost about 35nm northeast of Jakarta over the Java Sea. Rescue services are on their way to the suspected crash site.

    Indonesian Authorities reported it is certain the aircraft crashed north of the Karawang area in the waters of the Java Sea.

    According to ADS-B data transmitted by the aircraft’s transponder the aircraft departed Jakarta’s runway 25L, never climbed above 5400 feet remaining between 5200 and 5400 feet for about 6 minutes before losing altitude and disappearing from radar about 12 minutes after departure about 35nm northeast of Jakarta’s International Airport.

    The B737-800 MAX is state of the art. Lionair put a near-new 737-800 into the sea off Bali’s Denpasar airport in 2013. The airline has been growing at breakneck pace, a feat that takes great management skill to maintain safe operations — a task that is beyond Lion Air.

    The FBI’s reluctance to disclose whether or not the bombs were functional is indeed suspicious. I suspect if the bombs were functional the FBI would be making no secret of the fact. It’s telling that Sayoc hasn’t been charged with attempted murder IMO.

    Bourke Street driving rampage accused James Gargasoulas found fit to stand trial

    23 minutes ago October 29, 2018

    A driver accused of killing six people during a rampage in Bourke Street has been found fit to stand trial.

    James Gargasoulas faced a Supreme Court hearing before a jury last week to determine whether he was fit to stand trial on six counts of murder and 28 counts of attempted murder.

    The hearing heard evidence from medical experts that Mr Gargasoulas suffers from treatment-resistant paranoid schizophrenia with Messianic delusions.

    The jury took just four and a half hours to reach their verdict.

    Forensic psychiatrist Lester Walton told the court Mr Gargasoulas was “convinced that the Almighty will intervene”.

    “He doesn’t care about the final verdict,” Dr Walton said.

    “I’m not sure if he’s sure whether this intervention by God will occur prior to a verdict being reached or after.”

    Forensic psychiatrist Andrew Carroll gave evidence Mr Gargasoulas believed a comet will hit the earth in 2020 and “burn us all” or people will march on the Melbourne Assessment Prison and he will be released.

    A guy has written a piece at NRO and linked on his Twitter with:

    When writing about Apu, never give in to the narrative that artists should customize their work in order to serve the political agenda of any side.

    The auteur and their vision isn’t meant to serve a purpose or provide a learning lesson. It’s art. They can do as they please…

    Apu is now the fulcrum of raging debate on culture….( I think this dude is telling Sri ‘Problem with Apu’-ji* to settle down – but who is going to read 2000 words on either side of this ??

    Apu. Think about that.

    This is Trumps fault. The Chinese were happy quietly making money. He’s gone and upset the apple cart.

    No, the Chinese Hawks have been saying crazy shit for decades, just not reported because The Chinese Communist Party is the western media’s gold standard for everything. They must be protected. Similarly they’ve been running serious border disputes with virtually every single neighbor except their really crazy favourite uncle The Norks. Again, for decades.

    What Trump might however have precipitated is The Chicoms making a now or never play, given that the tide is turning. An emasculated US Military is something you don’t get very often.

    Shock/horror, a leftist victim narrative widely supported by the media/pollies turns out to be a stinking lie….
    https://www.thestranger.com/slog/2018/10/26/34543412/matthew-shepard-is-the-worlds-most-famous-gay-hate-crime-victim-but-was-he-really-killed-for-being-gay

    And of course the “right” is too cowed by being seen as nasty to actually state the facts or refuse to sanctify a “victim” of the day.

    Matthew Shepard’s death was the kind of event that took on outsized importance. All the national press covered it, repeating the story that soon we’d all come to know: Shepard had gone to a bar and talked with the wrong guys—guys who would soon trick him into their truck, rob him, and drive him to a remote stretch of Wyoming land and beat him beyond recognition. Matthew Shepard’s only mistake was running into some homophobic Wyoming rednecks and, for that, he was now dead. That’s the story America, and the world, believed.

    The murder became a rallying cry for the gay community. Gay rights groups organized around Shepard’s death and the public began talking about hate crime legislation. In the following years, film, novels, plays (including the Laramie Project) and many other works of art would be inspired by Shepard’s story, and the Matthew Shepard Foundation has become a powerful force in the queer community. Eventually, Congress would pass the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crime Prevention Act, which expanded federal hate-crime laws to include crimes motivated by gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability. Today, Matthew Shepard is perhaps the most famous hate crime victim of the last half-century. He’s certainly the most famous gay murder victim.
    ….

    Jimenez found that Matthew was addicted to and dealing crystal meth and had dabbled in heroin. He also took significant sexual risks and was being pimped alongside Aaron McKinney, one of his killers, with whom he’d had occasional sexual encounters. He was HIV positive at the time of his death. …

    Matthew’s drug abuse, and the fact that he knew one of his killers prior to the attack, was never explored in court. Neither was the rumour that the killers knew that he had access to a shipment of crystal meth with a street value of $10,000 which they wanted to steal.

    Bindel spoke to Waters, who told her, “I believe to this day that McKinney and Henderson were trying to find Matthew’s house so they could steal his drugs. It was fairly well known in the Laramie community that McKinney wouldn’t be one that was striking out of a sense of homophobia. Some of the officers I worked with had caught him in a sexual act with another man, so it didn’t fit. None of that made any sense.”

    That’s right: One of Shepard’s killers was queer. Jimenez found through his reporting that McKinney had been Shepard’s lover. Sure, it’s possible that he had some internalized homophobia, but the narrative that Shepard was killed by bigot rednecks who targeted him for being gay is not, according to Jimenez, actually true. They killed him over meth.

    After Shepard’s body was found, a couple of men in the local gay community contacted the press as well as gay rights groups, who connected the murder to the state legislature’s recent failure to pass hate crime legislation. The story that this was a hate crime began to spread, and in the days immediately following his death, a vigil was held for Shepard on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Ted Kennedy, Barbra Streisand, Elton John, and Madonna all got involved, and his funeral was attended by over 1,000 people, with many of Shepard’s friends dressed as angels

    But in best lefty tradition…

    And maybe that’s a good thing. Things did, in fact, change for the gay community after Matthew Shepard’s murder, and today, most gay people aren’t just protected by hate crime legislation, we have most (but not all) of the same rights as everyone else. It seems fair to connect those victories, at least in part, with the story of Matthew Shepard. And so even if he was more the victim of a drug robbery than a hate crime, his death still helped push forward the fight for gay rights. Whatever the truth, the National Cathedral seems like a fitting resting place.

    Lies just dont matter if they advance the lefty narrative.

    China reportedly threatens Vietnam into ending energy exploration in South China Sea

    Talisman-Vietnam, a subsidiary of Spanish energy firm Repsol, commenced gas-drilling operations in an area about 400 kilometers off Vietnam’s coast earlier this month, but Hanoi has since ordered Repsol to leave the zone, the BBC said, citing an unnamed source.

    Last week, Beijing warned Hanoi that it would attack Vietnamese bases in the Spratly Islands if drilling continued, the BBC continued.

    Beijing claims tremendous area
    The world’s second-largest economy claims a massive section of the South China Sea that extends roughly 1,000 miles from its southern shores. The huge area is home to significant energy deposits and the world’s busiest shipping routes. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also assert sovereign rights over parts of the international waterway.

    Apparently the Gosnell movie is pretty good.

    You know the one about the baby/woman murdering man who ran an abortion butchery and kept a jar of baby feet in his fridge?
    Surely you remember the wall to wall reports of his house of horrors, rivaling Ed Gein in its grisly collection of body parts?

    Pennsylvania law bars abortions after 24 weeks’ gestation, at which point a fetus is considered to be likely viable outside the womb. Gosnell performed multiple abortions at 24.5 weeks, and the grand jury report found that many of those procedures underestimated the period of gestation. One Gosnell employee estimated that about 40 percent of the clinic’s abortions occurred after 24 weeks. Gosnell, the grand jury found, killed the babies born alive in his clinic.

    “Gosnell had a simple solution for the unwanted babies he delivered: he killed them,” the report said. “He didn’t call it that. He called it ‘ensuring fetal demise.’ The way he ensured fetal demise was by sticking scissors into the back of the baby’s neck and cutting the spinal cord.”

    There were no inspections of the clinic over the next 16 years. The health department received multiple complaints about the clinic, including one from a doctor who said that his patients “were becoming infected with sexually transmitted diseases at Gosnell’s clinic when they had abortions there.”

    Abortion rights opponents contend that Gosnell makes the case for stronger clinic regulation, such as a new Virginia law that requires abortion clinics to comply with strict, hospital-style building codes.

    “Since Kermit Gosnell’s ‘house of horrors’ clinic was discovered in 2010,” Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement, “several states have enacted measures to ensure women going into abortion facilities are treated with basic dignity and respect.”

    Abortion rights supporters, however, say that the Gosnell case proves that women should have easier access to abortion so that they don’t have to seek care from an unqualified provider.

    “This is exactly what happens when you place undue restrictions and you try to shame women to keep them from exercising their constitutional right to safe and legal abortions,” NARAL Pro-Choice America president Ilyse Hogue told the Huffington Post. “You make them victims to people like Gosnell, because in their desperation they’ll turn anywhere.

Now here’s the thing – the group objecting to the name change is Aboriginal. The Victorian Government has proposed renaming the 1846m peak Jaithmathangs, after one of the traditional languages of the Bogong High Plains. But another Aboriginal nation, the Dhudhuroas, say the peak is part of their country and the proposed new name is just as offensive to them as Mt Niggerhead. Illawara Mercury

    Papua New Guinea’s bid for Australian military hardware

    Papua New Guinea has asked Australia to provide aircraft, pilot training and army vehicles to re­juvenate its depleted armed forces, urging Canberra to set aside memories of the Bougainville ­crisis when Australian-supplied helicopters were used as “gunships” against separatist forces.

    As negotiations continue for the establishment of a new joint military facility on Manus Island, former PNG defence chief Jerry Singirok said Papua New Guinea was seeking Australian support to build its “combat power”.

    “Increasing manpower is one thing, but you have to arm and you have to equip,” the retired general said. “We need platforms, weapons systems, communications and intelligence sharing at a strategic level.”

    The PNG Defence Force commander, Brigadier General Gilbert Toropo, urged Australian military leaders at a conference in ­Adelaide last month to upgrade support for the PNGDF beyond Australia’s current commitment, which ­largely consists of training and ­exercises.

    Mr Singirok, who is close to General Toropo, said PNG had a “wish list” for Australia, including greater “land mobility” and helicopters flown by PNG personnel.

    “How do you do surveillance? What do you do on day-to-day ­operations?” he said.

    PNG has been forced to rely heavily on Australia to ensure the security of next month’s APEC conference in Port Moresby, with the deployment of F/A-18 Hornets, a helicopter landing ship and up to 1500 personnel.

    Mr Singirok said Australia was PNG’s preferred military partner, but China was ready to step in if Australia rebuffed PNG’s ambitions to more than double the size of its defence force to 10,000 personnel, and equip it with modern hardware.
