    It keeps the providers in jobs and profits (Therese Rudd, anyone?) but simply adds to the despair of the hardest to deal with of their clients, who experience repeated failures.

    We have one such across the corridor from our office and all I ever see is people going in there, sitting around a table, with one of the Employment Deniers standing an easel draped with butcher’s paper and a black permanent marker. Oh and the door of that office is locked at all times with a note displayed that says “please use buzzer office is locked” – so that’s segregated employment for sure.

    The dignity of work is such a salve to self-respect and yet there are so many who will be denied that salve on the basis of ideology. Brought to you by taxpayer funded advocates.

    Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said the measures would put a distance between road users and pedestrians. “We want to create real space between vehicles, no matter who is driving the vehicle and what their intent, and pedestrians,” he told reporters on Thursday.

    Are Vic Pol the most truth avoidance in Australia? Here “no matter who is driving the vehicle” refers primarily to terrorists, who are primarily advocates of the religion of pieces.

  8. You can measure the Dems failure by noting that the day following the mid-terms they are retailing the same tired slogans that they were flogging the day before. Nothing has changed politically; they will simply have the platform of the Leadership of the House from which to announce their still impotent rage.

    Good comment by Gil over at Tim Blair: Gil

    Reg, your thinking is shallower than a birdbath. Delve deeper and you’ll find nuggets of information such as Trump campaigned heavily for nine candidates for a 7-2 result; Obama got on the hustings for seven candidates, all lost.

    And do some research on the Republicans who went under. Pretty much every one was a Never Trumper; so that rump of the GOP has been purged.

    Then do a comparison of midterm results, president by president. Wikipedia has a table going back to 1910. Trump’s results put him among the better performers. And here’s how the most recent Democrat presidents did in their first midterm exposure —

    Clinton: lost 54 HoR seats (258-204) and nine Senators (57-48); thus losing control of both houses.
    Obama: lost 63 HoR seats (256-193) and six Senators (57-51).

    Of course, for Obama, losing control of the lower house and having a thin majority in the Senate meant nothing (“I have a phone and a pen”) as he used executive orders (i.e., ruled as an emperor) to do an end run around those pesky legislators.

    Zyco,
    Power bills up? Appliances burning out? You may have a voltage problem
    The article does not mention that voltages tend to be set to insure that maximum demand is met at acceptable voltage. Maximum demand determines much of the grids properties, settings and costs. Domestic PV has an effect of lowering demand some of the time but not in a predictable way at street level. RE also effects how the 3 phases are loaded . It causes issues with harmonics, power factor, fault-current discrimination and ground current issues. The distributors need to keep voltage as high as possible to meet specification, keep transmission loses down and maximize the energy the grid can transmit at times of maxium demand. Because PV comes and goes as it pleases, the distributor in effect has to assume PV might not be there at any given time. To address these issues more money will need to be spent.

    “A staffer in Daniel Andrews’s office has been linked to China’s United Front organisation, which co-ordinates Beijing’s overseas influence operations, amid growing criticism of the Victoria Premier’s decision to sign up to Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative.
    The Australian can reveal Mr Andrews’s adviser Marty Mei was named a “special consultant” to the Shenzhen Association of Australia, which is part of a network of organisations in Australia that is guided by the Chinese Communist Party’s United Front Work Department.
    The association was opened in November 2016 by a senior Communist Party official, Ma Yongzhi, who is vice-minister of the United Front Work Department of Shenzhen.”

    Good rant Lizzie.

    I will add two cases I know personally:

    1) IQ of about 75; sheltered workshop for most of his life for work; lives with family; drives; has some social outputs – pretty OK and useful member of the community.

    2) IQ of about 115. A number of short term jobs, generally fired for being slack. Dodgy dealings everywhere – a sort of poor man’s Arthur Daley. Too lazy to pursue qualifications – relies on charm aka bullshit abilities. Takes lots of recreational drugs. Has spent the last 20 years on disability pensions, Newstart, etc etc. They make him work a bit in a bottle-o or whatever but he gets fired for not turning up etc.

    Your taxes at work. The first a caring society looks after; the second takes advantage of the caring society.

    Indeed. That’s the whole point of these cases. If the other side can’t question that then the case is over. I’m not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but isn’t the whole “truth is the best defence” the thing that stops you from losing these cases?

    Trump’s exchange with Acosta from the Fake News Network was quite funny in parts.

    Acosta: “Your campaign had an ad showing migrants climbing over walls …”

    Trump: “Well that’s true …”

    Acosta: “They’re not going to be doing that …”

    Woman pleads guilty to making false [email protected] allegation against ex partner

    Prosecutors will press for full time jail for a woman who has admitted she made a false [email protected] allegation against her former partner, a court heard on Tuesday.

    The former NSW police worker, 28, pleaded guilty this week to the false accusation charge, admitting she staged a fake crime scene, self-inflicted injuries to her head, called triple-o, and later concocted a fake story to police.

    Among the false allegations she made were that her ex-partner had come to the house and [email protected] her before hosing her off in the yard, court documents say.

    When the man was arrested on her false allegations he spent more than three months in Goulburn Supermax prison, because of his work as a Canberra prison guard.

    And then it was all over. The West.
    All that remains now is the coming spectacle.
    First you lose a few colonies. South Africa, Rhodesia, Israel.
    Then your enemies start to take advantage strategically: China will push through the Pacific in the early 2020s and cut Australia and New Zealand off from the rest.
    Then the borders into the heartland break down completely: Europe and America become completely porous.
    Then it is all gone forever.
    You were a people. Not a race. Or a gender. Or a sex. Or a political ideology.
    A people. With a shared language. Culture. Territory.
    A people becomes exhausted and spoilt. Takes for granted that others will do the hard and difficult and dirty things that need to be done.
    Eventually, a people comes to the end.
    What to do? What to do?
    Read the new testement. It is the best set of instructions how a man should behave as his world ends.
    The ending is just as important as the beginning or the middle: Maybe more important. It is how we will be remembered.
    It determines how much of the good we were is injected into what must come after us.
    Of course there will be a fight. I salute in advance those who will fight and die to try to preserve something of the greatest thing to have ever existed in history.
    But the biggest battle is within yourself. It is spiritual. Because the forces are massive and insurmountable. At some point you must acknowledge: What will be, will be.

  39. Zatara

    An assault in DC is defined as the threat or the use of force on another person that caused that person to have a reasonable apprehension of imminent harmful or offensive contact – Check.

    A battery is defined as an actual offensive contact from one person to another person – Check.

    Guess who gets to define offensive contact? Why the victim of course. We do believe the victim right?

    That’s all you got?

    Two years of non-stop campaigning, denouncing and doxing — and all the Resistance has to show for it is a House majority smaller than the one Republicans currently have and a net loss of three Senate seats? (Thank you, Justice Brett Kavanaugh!)

    Democratic leaders may try saying, “THIS IS JUST WHAT WE WANTED! We wanted to be down by three Senate seats.” But I think their voters are saying, We were hoping for more of a rebuke.

    The media exhausted itself on this election! Can they go back to that level of hysteria today?

    President Clinton lost 54 House seats and eight Senate seats in his first midterm, as voters responded to Hillary’s attempt to socialize health care. President Obama lost 63 House seats and six Senate seats in his first midterm, as voters responded to the Democrats’ successful party-line vote to socialize health care.

    America’s response to Trump’s first two years? Republicans lost fewer than 40 House seats and gained Senate seats. (Again: Thank you, Justice Kavanaugh.)

    And that was with more than 40 House Republicans being spooked into retiring rather than go down to certain defeat in what the media convinced them would be a big blue wave.

    It’s always a bad idea to give Democrats control of any part of government. You don’t want those guys running a lemonade stand.

    But — wow — are there silver linings!

    First, all the worst Republican House members were defeated, such as cheap labor advocate Kevin Yoder of Kansas and Florida’s Rep. Carlos Curbelo, a second-generation immigrant who goes around calling his fellow Republicans white supremacists. (Alleged white supremacist Steve King won and Curbelo lost — hahahahaha!)

    As the movie character Ninotchka said of Stalin’s reign of terror: “The last mass trials were a great success! There are going to be fewer but better Russians.”

    Second, the main accomplishment of the Resistance in the first midterm was to help Trump win his re-election bid.

    Even voters skeptical about Trump will embrace him after two minutes, let alone two years, of watching Speaker Nancy Pelosi run the House, Rep. Maxine Waters chair the House Financial Services Committee, Rep. Jerry Nadler head the Judiciary Committee — and Rep. Adam Schiff run around issuing subpoenas all over town.

    How about Rep. Alcee Hastings, an impeached and convicted bribe-taker? His seniority surely requires giving him a committee chairmanship! Is Pelosi going to discriminate against Hastings just because he’s a proud black man? Right now, Pelosi is trying to determine which committee chairmanship requires no honesty whatsoever.

    If you were hoping the Democrats would seize this opportunity to make utter fools of themselves — impeachment hearings, resurrecting the Kavanaugh gang rape claims, and Russia, Russia, Russia — I’ve got good news! That’s exactly what their base is demanding. I promise you, Maxine Waters is not going to say, “Don’t worry, guys. I’ll be keeping a very low profile.”

    Voters will be pleading, Couldn’t we get an infrastructure bill? Will you please do something about all these criminal aliens in my sanctuary city? And the Democrats will be carrying on about Trump’s taxes.

    The Senate math was on Republicans’ side, but countering that were several GOP retirements. Republicans not only held the Senate with a bigger margin … but now with no Jeff Flake, John McCain or Bob Corker!

    The only GOP senator to lose his re-election was Dean Heller of Nevada. That makes him the fourth Republican who supported Marco Rubio’s 2013 amnesty bill to lose his seat. Inasmuch as about 85 percent of incumbent senators win re-election, at least for the past quarter-century, this is quite an accomplishment!

    Mercifully, of the 14 GOP traitors who voted for Rubio’s amnesty, only six remain in office. Four were beaten, three retired one step ahead of the guillotine and one took the easy way out by dying.

    Which raises the question: What exactly was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s plan for victory? Hope a Supreme Court justice retired and that the Democrats would make vicious and false claims against our nominee?

    The Republicans’ stunning Senate victories resulted from nothing they did. These are the guys who ran like little girls from Trump’s campaign promises on immigration. Republicans didn’t even bother forcing Democrats to cast wildly unpopular votes on the wall, sanctuary cities or anchor babies. In fact, Republicans did very little of interest to any voters.

    The one and only reason Republicans picked up Senate seats in a midterm election is the utter derangement of the Resistance, which — by complete happenstance — was recently put on display when Democrats got the bright idea to falsely accuse a sweet nerd like Brett Kavanaugh of gang rape.

    As Trump is accused of the foulest treason over the next two years, he might want to remember Kavanaugh.

    You think having MSNBC gloat over your tax returns and Robert Mueller accusing you of collusion with Russia is outrageous? I imagine it was also unpleasant to be accused from every media outlet of gang rape. But Justice Kavanaugh and his family soldiered on, winning the nomination — and winning three Senate seats for the GOP.

    Just remember, Mr. President, every time Adam Schiff appears on TV, the RNC should be sending a receipt to the Democrats.

    Right-Wing Hate Groups Are Recruiting Video Gamers

    John, a father of two in Colorado, had no idea what his 15-year-old son had gotten into, until one night last year when John walked into his home office. We’re not using his last name to protect his son’s privacy.

    John saw a large pile of papers facedown next to his printer. He turned them over and found a copy of a notorious [email protected] propaganda book. “It’s ‘the white culture’s in trouble, we are under attack by J3ws, [email protected], every other minority.’ It was scary. It was absolutely frightening to even see that in my house. I was shaking, like, ‘What in the world is this and why is it in my house?’ ”

    John confronted his son angrily.

    “I was through the roof.” And then, “I went back into my room. I was crying. I felt like a failure that a child that I had raised would be remotely interested in that sort of stuff.”

    I die in jail or trying to run’: police had contact with Bourke St accused prior to rampage

    Tessa Akerman

    @TessaAkerman
    4 minutes ago November 8, 2018

    Police were in contact with accused Bourke Street killer James Gargasoulas from 11.48am on the morning of the incident, until he turned onto Swanson Street about 1.30pm using a mobile phone he allegedly stole from a friend earlier, a court has heard.

    Mr Gargasoulas is charged with six counts of murder over the deaths of Yosuke Kanno, Jessica Mudie, Matthew Si, Bhavita Patel, Tahlia Hakin and Zachary Bryant.

    He is also charged with 27 counts of reckless conduct endangering life.

    As family of the victims were shown vision of the incident, Director of Public Prosecutions Kerri Judd QC told a supreme court jury today at Mr Gargasoulas’s murder trial that Detective Senior Constable Murray Gentner spoke to Mr Gargasoulas for about 30 minutes from 11:48am and tried to calm him down and persuade him to surrender.

    By this time, the court heard, police had already been following Mr Gargasoulas through Melbourne’s inner east and South Melbourne.

    Ms Judd said Mr Gargasoulas came close to agreeing to Detective Sen Const Gentner’s request but said he “needed a day to sort out his stuff”.

    She said Mr Gargasoulas was then seen by witnesses in Yarraville who called Triple 0 after he told them they would see him on the news.

    She said Mr Gargaouslas texted Det Sen Const Gentner saying he had calculated his options.

    “It’s not looking good,” Mr Gargaouslas said.

    “I either die in jail or I die trying to run from the boys of which I’m one of them.”

    From the Oz. Six more casualties of the failure of the strategy of “contain and negotiate.” Lindt Cafe, anyone?

    1.5 M potential Democrat voters

    Voters in Florida approved a ballot measure on Tuesday that restores voting rights to citizens with felony convictions once they have completed their full sentence.

    More Cities Experiment With Community Courts
    The newly elected Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis opposed the measure called Amendment 4. But more than 64 percent of Florida voters voted in favor of the amendment – well above the 60 percent support that was needed for it to pass. This means that 1.5 million U.S. citizens in Florida automatically regained their right to vote, increasing the number of eligible voters in Florida by more than 10 percent overnight.

    A Pronoun Showdown at Ohio College
    Nicolas Meriwether teaches philosophy, but he might lose his job over grammar! Turns out, calling a male student “sir” puts you on the wrong side of America’s brave new battle over pronouns.

    Like a lot of educators, Meriwether assumed that biology was pretty self-explanatory. Just because a guy wants to be called a girl doesn’t mean he is one. His employers at Shawnee State University in Ohio beg to differ. When Nicolas refused to call a male student “ma’am” or “she,” he was hauled into his bosses’ office and slapped with a personnel violation. According to administrators, acknowledging someone’s biological s3x with the right pronoun “creates a hostile environment.”

    Brazil: Jair Bolsonaro’s Lawmaker Son to Meet with Donald Trump Next Week

    ….Although never bad, relations with the United States under Brazil’s former socialist administrations of Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva and Dilma Rousseff were never particularly close. Both leaders preferred to form close alliances with leftist allies across the continent, such as Hugo Chávez, Fidel Castro, and Evo Morales.

    Bolsonaro, elected President of Brazil last week in a major shock to the country’s political establishment, has pledged to forge much closer relations with the United States. He is also likely to mirror much of Trump’s foreign policy, including pushing back on growing Chinese influence in the region, moving the Brazilian embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and helping to isolate Nicolás Maduro’s socialist dictatorship in Venezuela….

    Kind of odd that Ashleigh Raper wanted to keep the lid on Luke Foley’s sexual assault.
    She works for the ABC.

    A separate statement from the ABC said the corporation considered it extremely unfortunate that media and public pressure had been applied to Ms Raper and caused her to speak publicly on an issue she did not wish to pursue or to comment on.

    But the ABC had no problem pursuing Barnaby Joyce’s perfectly legal relationship.

    The assault was witnessed:

    This was witnessed by Sean Nicholls, who was then the state political editor at the Sydney Morning Herald and is now an ABC journalist.

    Mr Foley then left the bar.

    Sean and I discussed what happened.

    As shaken as I was, I decided not to take any action and asked Sean to keep the events in the strictest confidence.

    He has honoured that.

    Accused driver James Gargasoulas has pleaded not guilty to murdering six people and hurting 27 others — so that he can take to the witness stand and explain his actions, a jury has been told.

    Mr Gargasoulas, 28, is accused of being behind the wheel when pedestrians were mowed down in Melbourne’s CBD on January 20 last year.

    The Supreme Court heard he texted a friend in the hours before the horrific one-minute trail of carnage: “I’m going to do something drastic, take everyone out. Watch me. You will see me tonight on the news.”

    It is well known that Foley had and probably still has an alcohol problem….busted twice for drink driving. Perhaps he should never have been leader. However, I don’t relish seeing any man’s career destroyed….even if I don’t like his politics. It’s not as though he cornered her in a room and raped her. As Germaine Greer has said and I agree with her….why didn’t the ABC journalist just smack him in the face if he did what she alleges he did. Our society is now so f*cked….we have turning women into pathetic, helpless, hapless, mouse like victims…so much for female empowerment. What a joke.

    Technically you are wrong.

    A mid cut dress would also allow access to panties area. Bloke tall, girl shorter etc. However, given the type of evening she went to likely it was a bare backed number. Who cares? It is irrelevant what she was wearing.

    It is not technically an indecent assault. It just is, as it was not consented to. Nothing technical about it.

    A crime is committed whether the victim lodges a complaint or not. The police can investigate a crime whether the victim lays a complaint or not. A police officer can be the complainant.

  126. pete m

    NSW police website on complaints of sexual assault says:

    Generally, action will not be taken to investigate or prosecute an alleged sexual assault without the permission of the victim. There may however be some occasions where it is in the interests of the broader community to proceed.

    One should not laugh though, it’s the fashionable thing for the sheilas to come up with in their desperate pursuit of relevance – a new target every week or so to keep the narrative alive and it’s Luke Foley’s turn this week. I cannot for the life of me remember any of Their ABC stunners being able to lay claim to such attention from any blokes ever … Our Ashleigh is a bag of bones with a huge gob, given to wearing sunglasses the size of a suburban bus windscreen.

    I anxiously await her interview, to watch her version of the Christine Blasé Ford fake 8 year old baby voice, as if asking daddy for a lollipop, as primary evidence that she is credible.

    I am reminded the New York Times did thunder its guidance about that hysterical bint “Believe all women”, before she was found to be a shameless liar. One of her wrinkled old blonde co-accusers, Judy Munro-Leighton, admitted last week she herself lied and used the allegations as a ploy to get attention; and her admission has been referred by the Judiciary Committee to the US Attorney General and the FBI.

    The first a caring society looks after; the second takes advantage of the caring society.

    Agree, Top Ender, it is hard to watch someone on massive amounts of constant ‘recreational’ drugs drift and grift without feeling ripped off as a taxpayer. But that is what they do. A life spent on $250 a week is their reward because it is all they end up fit for. Catch them early enough, in their teens, throw them off the dole and into proper work, smarten them up about drug use, offer them a hint of Jordan Peterson’s ‘clean your room’ and treat various psychological deficits, and we all benefit. I would like policies that don’t allow this ‘taking advantage of our caring’ to get a hold on people. Also a change in the culture about the ‘harmlessness’ of ‘recreational’ drugs. ‘Recreational’ drug use is a curse for vulnerable unemployed people. It can make them unemployable if they have other problems too – and many have, such as undiagnosed or hard-to-diagnose personality or autism spectrum issues made worse by drugs but not bad enough to be recognised for DSP or NDIS help.

    Once they’ve done 20 years at it, as like as not they are useless wrecks when it comes to productive employment, full of learned helplessness and victim culture and psychological problems which may have been the start of it all anyway. Sometimes they still manage the occasional bottle shop shift etc, seem relatively happy and somehow get by. If so, these are not the ones I am talking about. They still have some sense of their ability to work and can thus be reached by normal job seeker requirements and assistance. Tough love may work there.

    It’s those who are simply beyond this, highly damaged friendless people who sit all day in their rooms on Newstart or hang out around the streets aimlessly that I have seen, know of, and would like policies to help, the provision of some place to go where as Tinta says, instead of more whiteboard lectures about how to apply for jobs they will never get, they might find some personal dignity in sheltered work offering a small reward for their efforts, for they will never get real jobs, even low level ones. We should face this as a society even though it can be distasteful, avoid making more of them, and be more realistic about our expectations from those who have reached this nadir.

    Sir John Northcote flats in inner Sydney, a public housing block 13 stories high, is colloquially known as Suicide Towers. I was there once visiting when someone ‘went over’: a social reject, giving up his life sentence of living on the dole, unemployed and knowing he was an outcast, unemployable.

    Enjoy your tasty meats while you can – Big Green and the Health Nazis are coming for your sausage roll next:

    Taxing red meat would save many lives, research shows

    Taxing red meat would save many lives and raise billions to pay for healthcare, according to new research

    ‘Raise billions’ until only the rich are left buying it.

    Governments already tax harmful products to reduce their consumption, such as sugar, alcohol and tobacco.

    With growing evidence of the health and environmental damage resulting from red meat, some experts now believe a “sin tax” on beef, lamb and pork is inevitable in the longer term.

    ….said Marco Springmann, at the University of Oxford and who led the new study.

    “Nobody wants governments to tell people what they can and can’t eat,” Springmann said. But..

    But…= ‘We absolutely want the horrible things the Proles consume banned or rationed, but the spineless politicians think the Deplorables might object ?!’

    But the healthcare costs incurred by eating red meat are often paid by all taxpayers, he said: “It is totally fine if you want to have [red meat], but

    But… = ‘What I really want to say is…’

    …but this personal consumption decision really puts a strain on public funds. It is not about taking something away from people, it is about being fair.”

    ‘it is about being fair’ – as we strip away your freedoms.

    Meat eating is also damaging the planet.

    Of course.

    In May, a major analysis of the damage livestock does found that avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact.

    Be very surprised if they hadn’t come up with the Correct Answer.

    In October, scientists reported that huge reductions in meat eating are essential to avoid dangerous climate change, including a 90% drop in beef consumption in western nations.

    Goodbye Australian agriculture – goodbye..

    Australians would face a 109% tax on processed meats and 18% on unprocessed meats,

    They can always find a ‘study’ to support the Soylent Green economy.

    Remember – big reductions in agricultural and transport emissions are buried in the Dept literature about ‘Meeting Paris’. It won’t stop with closing the coal-fired power stations.

    So for Guy Fawkes Night, some chavs have a tasteless bonfire – which unfortunately for them finds its way on to Youtube.

    With no violent knife crimes or property thefts to deal with, the London plod throw everything they have at the crime.

    A sixth person was arrested last night in connection with the burning of an effigy of Grenfell Tower, as detectives raided the property where the “sickening” incident took place.

    Three plain clothes police officers spent two hours at the home of Clifford Smith, 49, and his 19-year-old son, Bobbi Connell, in south east London, before leaving with three bags of evidence.

    The pair handed themselves into police on Monday night along with three other party goers, after a national outcry was sparked when a video was uploaded to social media showing a group of people allegedly jeering as they burnt an effigy of Grenfell Tower.

    Last night a 19-year-old became the sixth person detained and was also being questioned by detectives.

    Scotland Yard said the men had been arrested on suspicion of intentionally causing harassment, alarm or distress under section 4a of the Public Order Act.

    It is thought the searches of the house may have been ordered in an attempt to ascertain whether any hate crime had been committed and whether the offences may have been racially aggravated.

    These guys are headed for the Tommy Robinson wing of HM Prison ‘Death to the Infidels’.

    Leftards call staring at a woman for more than a nano second sexual assault.

    I regularly attend meetings where the overwhelming majority of participants are such women. I make sure that I never make eye contact or allow my eyes to stray to their breast zone or their legs/ass zone. If I have to look at any of these witches, I look at their mouths, then look down at my notes as quick as I possible can. I only speak when I am asked to contribute and I make my points in once brief sentence. When I speak, I never look at anyone; I look down at my notes. If I am asked (rarely) to elaborate, I just say that the other participants have covered the issues far more comprehensively than I ever could. The majority of the time I just sit there nodding and having an expression on my face as though someone has said something insightful.

    Most of these meetings have food and wine. I always only drink water and I never top up anyone else’s water or offer food just in case I am accused of man-serving.

    Once the meeting is over, I get the hell out of there as fast as I can.

    Most of the women never remember my name but always tell me that they remember me from the previous meeting/event.

    My wife always asks me what kind of people attend these meetings/events; I just tell her “the kind of people I never talk to in real life.”

    From Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. at 5:27 pm:

    “Mick Gold Coast, haven’t seen you around these parts for a while. Good to see you.

    Agree with you.”

    I am pleased to see that, thank you.

    This somehow rejuvenated Western world womens movement does a great disservice to all females by aggressively confronting the differences between males and females at every opportunity; racing off to some dinky special purpose commission demanding action from people installed at public expense to do precisely what that lobby wants, relying on fabricated legislation; planting media fables; requiring equal numbers of female board members and parliamentarians and public service chiefs (notwithstanding that not one of them has offered anything remarkable); spouting vitriol in the Parliament about invented misogyny (I’ve not been able to fathom why that woman did that to such an undeserving subject and got away with it); and generally keeping a divisive campaign alive for no good purpose.

    Females have never been better off and it has been so for a long time – the law schools have been churning out more female graduates than males for a decade or more and all the professions are overflowing with them as well. I recently discovered the lie about inequality in tennis prize money, when Serena Williams claimed abusing the umpire was somehow excusable because she was striking a blow for females (the reality was that she was losing and did her characteristic blame anybody – she tried it on Sam Stosur while she (Sam) was beating her in the US Open seven years ago). I found that Serena had been on equal pay for about 17 years of her 20 years at the top because Billie Jean King had fought and won that battle a decade before she retired in 1983!

    It is all so damned pointless and my experience has been that success for them all – males and females – is a consequence of focused education support from the time they commence school (little girls perched on the bathroom stool practising for their spelling test, while I shaved, showered and questioned them on Fridays) lots of reading and encouraging wide academic, sports and life interests (I still meet No 1 daughter – now 41 – regularly at the Art Gallery in Macquarie Street for a wander around and a designer lunch, the menu for which I don’t understand but she does). Yet we legislate and mob rule for an inferior result.

    I am fortunate that my parents boasted equally about the academic and career successes of my brothers and sisters alike, conditioning us to repeat that practice. I know you are well aware of these things.

    It occurs to me that the feminist lobby has little interest in “success for them all – males and females”.

    The Western world females I observe now have no idea what they want to achieve and how, and a reducing capacity to correct their strategies and methods. I have counseled many young men (who are confused by their actions – and by their materialism) in my profession and in our trades workforce to cast their net more widely, with some success. I am blessed to have married into an Asian family long ago in which the women have run a matriarchal show for centuries and have no need or desire to pursue “feminism” – they shake their head in astonishment at what they see on that front. I expect you, Elizabeth, will also be familiar with the intelligent, clever and effective techniques that they employ to craft a peaceful family environment in which they make many of the decisions whilst publicly attributing that wisdom to their husbands as the respected figurehead. They manage to do that whilst maintaining all the seductive characteristics of a very feminine manner – there is no struggle or desire to be a male because they recognise the obvious synergy and profitability of accommodating one of each brand!

Anyway, she caught up with me in one of the isles and thanked me again and told me that she thought that there were no polite men left in the world and that she was chuffed that a man would make way for her. I just told her that I was brought up in a different Australia to the one we live in today. She said that was regrettably true.
