    Judge throws out ‘unfair’ all-male jury in child sex trial
    Janet Fife-Yeomans, The Daily Telegraph

    Subscriber only

    EXCLUSIVE: The jury in a sex assault case has been discharged­ before even being sworn in because­ all 12 members were men and the judge did not believe they were representative of the community.

    District Court Judge Donna Woodburne said the law gave her the right to intervene if she thought that the trial might appear to be “unfair” because of the make-up of the jury.

    Of more than 1000 jury trials heard every year in the District Court alone, this is believed to be the first time a jury has been dismissed because of gender. Jurors were chosen as usual at random from a panel of both men and women.

    They were to sit on the trial of a 78-year-old man charged with 14 counts of raping and indecently­ assaulting his partner’s granddaughter when she was aged just seven and eight.

    “It appears to the court that the composition of the jury isn’t going to be representative of the community,” Judge Woodburne (pictured), a former Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, said. While women have been able to sit on a jury since 1947, single-sex juries are not prohibited by law. However, the Act does state a judge may “discharge the jury … if in the opinion of the judge (it) has resulted in a jury whose composition is such that the trial might appear to be unfair”.

    Defence barrister Kellie Stares said the situation was the first she had encountered.

    Another jury containing both men and women was sworn in on the same day late last month and convicted the man on 12 of the 14 offences. He was remanded in custody for sentence on December 14.
    New South Wales Bar Association president Arthur Moses SC.

    NSW Bar Association president Arthur Moses SC said the gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation of a juror would not determine if the defendant­ got a fair trial, but said he could not comment on the specifics of this case.

    In case you missed some fine hammering and gluing on the
    last page.

    I saw the video, and the footwear that your apprentice is wearing.
    There are several questions that need answering:
    1. The footwear does not appear to be OH&S compatible.
    2. What is the apprentice wage remuneration and does the apprentice get paid leave to attend TAFE education?
    3. Have you been given permission to employ a person under the age of 16 – we are not going to imply the apprentices age or gender – that would be wrong. And bad.
    4. When did your apprentices workplace last have an OH&S Inspection?
    It would be much easier for you to present at your local Police Station to answer these allegations. Bring your Lawyer.

    1st Australian Tunnelling Company A.I.F.

    The last to fall-
    By the end of October 1918, the First World War was over for most Australians. Sadly, for those few still fighting, the war’s final days could still prove deadly.

    By late 1918, with the armies moving quickly over open country, there was little underground activity on the Western Front and the 1st Australian Tunnelling Company found themselves being used on general engineering, roadworks, bridging and labouring jobs.

    Zero hour for the attack on Sambre canal was set for 5.45 am on 4 November 1918. The 1st Australian Tunnelling Company’s role was to unload and assemble heavy steel joists during the night and bring them and other material up to the canal. Later, and once the infantry had established a bridgehead, they were to construct a heavy-duty bridge near a lock suitable for tanks to cross. It would all have to be done under enemy fire.

    Three Australians were killed as the battle opened, Sappers Albert Davey, Arthur Johnson and Charles Barrett. The three Australians were buried in a row, together with about 50 other British soldiers.

    The death in battle of three diggers of the tunnelling company so close to the end of the war was tragic. They seem to have been the last Australian fatalities in a ground action on the Western Front. On the same day, further north, three pilots of the Australian Flying Corps were killed in air combat.
    Other Australians died away from the battle front. The last Australian battle deaths on the Western Front may have occurred on 4 November 1918. However there were more deaths in the following days, including about 20 from illness and wounds on the last day of the war.

    Many thousands more would die of war-related causes in the decades to follow.

    “The Era Where Jokes Have Come to Die”

    There’s a joke that’s been going around for a while that runs: “How do you know someone is a vegan? Because they f—— tell you!” Certainly veganism seems to be more than just a preference for a vegetarian diet; there is a moral unctuousness to it that seems to go hand in hand with a PETA membership card.

    Which brings me to Megan McArdle’s column in the Washington Post a couple days ago relating how a food magazine editor was fired for making a joke about vegans, “How Many Vegans Does It Take to Screw Up A Meal?” But McArdle goes on to note that this story is about more than just a joke at the expense of vegans; comedy itself is starting to become a suspect category for the left’s cultural commissars

    Moral unctuousness sounds just like the sort of dressing you’d want to put on your kale and broccoli salad if you were a vegan activist.

    DELINGPOLE: No, Vegetarianism Won’t Save the World from ‘Climate Change’

    Vegetarians and vegans have been getting very uppity of late. One reason for this is that some idiot told them they hold the key to saving the world.

    According to the (rampantly vego-loon) Humane Society “your diet could save the planet”.

    According to Yvo de Boer, the former head of the UN climate agency, “the best solution would be for us all to become vegetarian.”

    Maybe de Boor should hold her breath instead, to stop breathing out ebil CO2.

    Territorians have seven times the national average of gonorrhoea
    LAUREN ROBERTS, NT News
    November 5, 2018 1:30am
    Subscriber only

    TERRITORIANS are getting gonorrhoea at a rate nearly seven times the national average and health experts are urging Territorians to look after their junk because the dangerous sexually transmissible infection is starting to resist standard treatment.

    Australian Health Department figures show there’s been 699.4 notifications of gonorrhoea for every 100,000 people in the NT so far this year — substantially hig

    me time frame.

    Centre for Disease Control sexual health physician Dr Manoji Gunathilake said as the Territory had a smaller population, STIs could spread quickly and it was important to get regularly tested.

    “Generally, the NT has really high rates of STIs,” she said.

    “The good thing is more and more people are getting tested, our testing rates are really good compared to other states.”

    The latest CDC bulletin shows a spike in the number of gonococcal infections in Katherine, East Arnhem, Darwin, Barkley and Alice Springs.

    Dr Gunathilake said she was mostly concerned about an increase in the presentations of drug-resistant gonorrhoea cases, which in simple terms meant the infection was getting harder to treat.

    The jury in a sex assault case has been discharged­ before even being sworn in because­ all 12 members were men and the judge did not believe they were representative of the community.

    You can see where this is going.

    It’s the same illogical thinking that says Parliament must be made up of 52% women because that reflects the community.

    Ok.

    So therefore, given 15% of the population (2017 figures) is aged 65 or over, then 15% of the seats in Parliament should be reserved for such people.

    And so on.

    You’d think a judge would see the failure in logical thinking.

    A controversial decision from Virgin Australia to give military veterans special boarding and in-flight privileges has received mixed opinions from passengers. The move, backed by prime minister Scott Morrison, would see Australian ex-servicemen honoured in a similar way to those who fly in America. Thousands of Australians have expressed their disapproval and campaigned to boycott the airline completely if the new system is adapted. While some were happy to comply with the US-style concept, others were convinced it was a politically-driven stunt designed purely to boost Mr Morrison’s popularity. If the plan goes ahead it would see veterans offered priority boarding and thanked during the airline’s in-flight announcements.

    Oh God. More apeing of Americans.
    Real ex-servicemen don’t want that sort of attention.

    Bill Burr has ridiculed this concept brilliantly:

    the judge did not believe they were representative of the community.

    Most juries are made up of moochers who can happily hang around for days.
    Retired, unemployed, public servants etc.

    Any kind of productive businessperson cannot afford to do this and will get a dispensation.
    So no businessman or woman on trial will ever be tried by a jury of their peers.

    “That’s dangerous, because that undermines their confidence in the justice system. That’s our concern. It’s an attack effectively upon the rule of law.”

    The freedom to criticise the administration of law is in fact a principle of the rule of law, which of necessity includes free speech.

    If the criticism is uniformed, it should be easy for the learned judge to offer a rebuttal.

    PVO thinks it’s wrong…

    Congratulations to Qantas for not following the virtue signalling lead of Virgin Australia by putting in place a populist and selective policy “honouring” military veterans.

    Of course our veterans must be honoured, as they are on Anzac Day and via a host of other means. But boarding flights first with a salute thanking them for their service? What rubbish.

    It’s a classic reactive decision in the wake of the Invictus games in the month of November. And let’s be clear, most veterans would be embarrassed by the Virgin offering. That’s been the dominant reaction so far.

    Why single out veterans? What about emergency personnel: police, firefighters and paramedics? What about nurses, aid workers and social workers, especially in remote Indigenous communities?

    Indeed what about anyone who receives an Order of Australia for that matter? Especially for community service.

    That the armed forces is separated from this pack makes sense if only front line personnel are being honoured, given the extreme harms-way they put themselves in for the nation. But the honour includes all veterans, and excludes so many professions which do so much for this country.

    So a cook in the army gets honoured by a police officer in the line of fire doesn’t?

    While I’ve seen the Virgin plan likened to what happens in the USA, that is false equivalence. Individuals aren’t honoured in the US the way they will be by Virgin here in Australia, partly because airline authorities see such a move as a potential security risk.

    And of course our ex-marketing PM Scott Morrison was right there alongside the Virgin CEO applauding the announcement — populist as ever. Reactive as ever. Not thinking through the inconsistency and selective nature of the announcement.

    A member of my family on my mothers side has fought in every war the US has been involved in dating right back to the war of independence in 1776. I could hardly have more respect for what service men and women do. But the Virgin plan isn’t about that. It’s a cheap marketing ploy to take advantage of these good men and women.

    While the government might be too populist to see the virtue signalling depths of the announcement at least the national carrier saw through it. Bravo.

    Driving anywhere, in the Wheatbelt, even somewhere so well traveled as Great Eastern Highway to Kalgoorlie, I was always struck by the amount of fools who didn’t even take the most basic of precautions – spare fuel and water for the radiator, let alone drinking water even for children in the car…

    It’s a habit with me that I always carry food and water in the vehicle.
    Reason?
    I’ve seen many occasions when outback roads are cut by floodwater, and they have been closed to all traffic. People blame the coppers, but it’s really the road constructors – forgotten their name – Teksomething? – who are responsible. The police put up a sign and there is a huge fine for using a road closed.
    So while the road is trafficable, people get caught for days by the roadside. Often there are families with kids, and it becomes a nightmare.
    I took in a family once, their vehicle had been stuffed when a semi going past had shot a load of water into their air intake and blown the motor. They stayed with me for about a week, I think. Also went around letting people use my shower and laundry facilities.
    The lesson is that roads can be cut anywhere, and there may not be an alternative.

    I subsribe to a very leftist mob of woke newsletters.

    But this one is so woke it can smell time passing and is wokemortal..

    Sapiosexualism is the new dating trend that won’t go away

    Shot: If you have gone on any internet dating app lately you’ve probably noticed the term “sapiosexual” in people’s profile. Most people use this to mean they are highly attracted/turned on by intelligence.

    Countershot: The argument goes that sapiosexualism is a form of ableism because you are judging people with different mental abilities as being less valid and ignoring the neurodiversity of differently abled people.

    Muddle through: In the end, we are left with a compromise between those who feel sapiosexualism is a natural extension of their sexual identity and those who feel it is pretentious, elitist, and ableist. We can appeal to evolution to both explain why sapiosexualism makes sense to people and why it is myopic in its understanding of what types of intelligence are attractive in romantic partners.

    Nobody should feel guilty for being attracted to people with big brains. But at the same time we shouldn’t limit our understanding of “big brain” to only those good at taking IQ tests. There is so much more to the human mind and what it means to have an expansive, interesting mind.

    So in the end they defend their “discrimination” by saying Johnny glue eater may just be “differently highly intelligented” or something.

    Why this Turkish-Australian teacher and poet thinks we need an extra minute’s silence

    What is the opinion of one menopausal moonbat national news? Because it happens to suit the usual ABC agendas?

    Schoolkid to schoolteacher
    The Turkish-Australian teenager was unable to voice her request — in those days her English wasn’t good enough to express what she felt.

    But she imagined that when she grew up, she’d be a teacher, and her students would stand in silence for two minutes.

    Today, she has achieved both aims.
    “I haven’t been able to do it at every school because of protocol and politics, but I have done it — yes!” she says.

    Students at her current school aren’t standing for the extra minute, but at other schools she’s taught, they have — with the support of the principal.

    A 20-year-old man has been charged with the murder of his “best mate” following an alleged assault on Sydney’s northern beaches yesterday morning.

    Mathew Flame, 20, is accused of killing 26-year-old Liam Anderson — the son of rocker Gary “Angry” Anderson — following what was reportedly a frenzied assault in Queenscliff.

    Police said yesterday Mr Flame — one of Mr Anderson’s best friends — was still attacking Liam when police arrived.

    Liam was unconscious when police arrived, and officers say the attack was so savage the injuries left Liam unrecognisable.

    They said “significant force” and a large number of police officers were needed to arrest Mr Flame.

    Anyone who thinks one day cricket is a pay-to-view event is a complete mug.

    Quite so, Humphrey. Cricket Australia’s new TV rights deal not only sold out cricket fans, it’s also a giant miscalculation:

    Cricket Australia’s $1.2 billion move to Foxtel has, much like the Australian team’s performance against South Africa, debuted with a whimper.

    Sunday’s coverage of the first One Day International (ODI) in Perth between Australia and South Africa on Foxtel’s new Fox Cricket channel attracted an average audience of just 205,000 viewers across the five major cities.

    To put that in perspective, Foxtel scored higher ratings in recent weeks with its coverage of Gold Coast Supercars (212,000 viewers) and an NRL test between Australia and Tonga (231,000 viewers).

    The figures represent an almost fourfold drop when contrasted with last season’s ODI in Perth between Australia and England on Nine – the fifth game in a series England had wrapped up early – which attracted an average audience of 956,000 viewers for the free-to-air network.

    For a further comparison, the last time South Africa toured Australia for an ODI was in November 2014, with the opening game, at the time also played in Perth, attracting just over one million viewers for Nine.

  114. C.L.

    Gay panic?

    Mathew Flame, 20, from Narraweena, is accused of bashing Liam Anderson, 26, to death at Pavilion Park in Queenscliff, north Sydney, early on Sunday morning…

    The ABC understands the men had returned to the northern beaches from a party in the city before they started fighting…

    Mr Flame featured in Mr Anderson’s social media posts, including in September at the Defqon.1 music festival.

    At the time, Mr Anderson described Mr Flame in his captions as being his “homie” and wrote “love ya mate”.

    “You guys are obsessed (with) each other”, another friend replied.

    Mr Anderson wrote back: “Yeah pretty much”.

    From Michael Walsh via Instapundit, a story of a massive CIA failure under Obama. A key paragraph:

    As I’ve been saying since the whole silly “Russian collusion” fantasy was concocted to explain away Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 presidential election, Russia is our adversary, but China is our enemy. (So is Iran, and has been since the Carter administration.) The Chinese have repeatedly hacked their way into government networks, planted spies in the agencies and on the staffs of prominent Democrats, and have generally used their money and influence to gain access to American officials (beginning with the Clintons) and educational institutions. The American media is obsessed with the Russians’ piddling efforts to interfere with the electoral process; meanwhile, the Chinese and the Iranians are stealing us blind.

    I was 25 and the New York correspondent for The Australian . Fraser was in New York as part of the UN’s “eminent persons” group on apartheid and after a press conference I ended up in a busy New York bar with him where he proceeded to get overly friendly. I fled to a cab to escape him but he jumped in after me, leading me to try pushing him away with my feet on his chest until the New York cabbie said, “I can see you are in trouble lady” and dropped me off at the next corner, speeding off with the bewildered Fraser. When I recounted the story, my colleagues were sceptical the dour Fraser would misbehave like that. More experienced hands felt it was not a story.

    A few weeks later broke the bizarre story that Malcolm Fraser had been found in a Memphis motel missing his trousers after an “innocent” drink with a woman we later found was called Peaches.

    I am not surprised, considering her vision of rights is “whatever I think would be nice”.

    I mean, there is a right, sanctified by the imprimatur of The Blessed and Most Holy, The United Nations, to enter a country seeking asylum when escaping persecution. But she imagined it to be the right to leave your country and go to another country because their welfare is more generous, no questions asked.

    As for the rest of us, we have always had the inviolable right (‘which shall not be denied or abridged’ – I have always rather enjoyed that phrasing, showing that real rights are stern ancient bulwarks)…anyway, our right to Gillian Triggs’ opinion, her generous castigations, her sweet and sincere loathing.

You did check the switch didn’t you, the way he put it in on the old dimmer switch, said that was the only way to do it if we wanted to keep the light there? I ask. Of course I did, and the remote battery, he sez scornfully back.

    Electrician comes, turns up the dimmer switch, and it works.
    Call out fee of course.

    hat is Birmingham going to do to keep migrants in regional towns? Build a wall around each town?

    No welfare within fifty km of Sydney for new migrants.

    The weirdest line-up on Q&A tonight including

  180. Old School Conservative

    No welfare within fifty km of Sydney for new migrants.

    So the government is acknowledging that migrants come here for welfare, not jobs.
    Finally an admission we can believe.

  181. Death Giraffe

    Your comments are on record here, my little turtle rat.
    Once final footage emerges of the hyper- chick vacuuming awesomeness of the completed and fully operational death- to- all- giraffes- mobile is up, you shall eat your words.

  182. H B Bear

    All welfare for new migrants only paid in cash at the Cunnamulla Centrelink with photo ID should fix it.

  183. Tintarella di Luna

    As Professor Gillian Triggs left the position of president of the Australian Human Rights Commission ­in 2017, she said she had seen human rights for women, asylum-seekers, refugees, the homeless and ­indigenous Australians regress in the last five-years.

    And it all happened on her watch, before her five year tenure there was equal pay for equal work irrespective of gender. Triggs has a lot to answer for including her politicisation of a statutory office by delaying an Inquiry into Children in Detention because it would have embarrassed the Labor party which had appointed her.

  184. Shy Ted

    Oh I do hope this aeroplane is leaving and not coming to Oz.

  185. Armadillo

    the hyper- chick vacuuming awesomeness

    Fake news. The contraption Giraffe is attempting to build bears no resemblance to the “video evidence” provided. He’ll be lucky to convince a blind 100 year old granny to get in the passenger seat of his “Death Mobile”. Not unless he puts a tray on the back and converts it to a hearse.

    Feel sorry for the comrades at australian media desparately striving to prevent a Trump Republican government in Canberra . The Trump arepublicans will not rule in Canberra you say , you could have fooled me the way they are going on . I hope the Trump regime treats the australian uniparty as a hostile group ,they certainly havent been enthused by Trumps wins and sensible anti fascist actions .
    Read where USA is now biggest oil producer in the world since Trump scrapped stifling regulations which enslaved theUSA to the oecd fascists ,wonder what our oil and gas situation would be like if fracking were allowed ,no more two weeks supply rubbish .destroy the left. Defund them .

    Dr Fred, the kindest thing Trump could do would be to put us on his hate list with Cuba, Iran, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. It’s where we deserve to be.

    I know there are separate threads for the Ross Cameron gerfuffle but it follows that certain trigger words now exist and are verboten in public life: slanty eyes (just imagine if Cameron had said chinks or honkers), anything to describe people of darker hue, a particular synonym for minge, the name of a certain ethnic group who ostensibly run the world. Anything else and more importantly is there a rhyme or reason to it.

  209. Nick

    Ross should have used some of the offensive terms that the Chinese have for everyone apart from themselves. No one would have dared say a word.

    Pretending to fight “crime” …

    Almost 10 million illegal cigarettes seized by Australian Border Force in record WA haul.

    A 28-year-old man has been charged with illegally importing 9.5 million cigarettes into Western Australia after what the Australian Border Force (ABF) has described as a record seizure for the state…

    ABF officers later raided two homes and a tobacco shop in Morley as well as a storage facility in the southern Perth suburb of O’Connor on Friday.

    This is a good man – lots of dash. Shame it didn’t work out for him this time around.

    There are concerns the haul could be part of a wider illegal operation.

    Ahahahahahaha. Ya think?

    The ABF said the illicit tobacco market was worth about $600 million a year in evaded revenue.

    Anyone with information on the illegal importation of illicit tobacco is encouraged to contact Border Watch.

    Go f-ck yourselves. That’s my contact.

    How the hell do you illegally import 9.5 million cigarettes?

    Stick it down your undies? Swallow it after wrapping it in a condom?

    If they can simply put it in a cargo container, imagine how much heroin gets through. If it’s estimated that $600 million in lost revenue from tobacco smuggling alone PA, I think we might have bigger problems.
