    Joe Biden´s history of unwanted touching threatens to put off women if he runs for president
    Los Angeles Times, by Michael Finnegan and Melanie Mason

    For it to get a run in the lefty LA Times means someone in the Democrat Party has kicked off a long stored weapon of MSM destruction.

    The most vigorous supporters of communism were always found living outside of any communist country. They were the ones who didn’t go away and were the problem. The actual communists lived through it and knew what kind of BS it was. The Soviet leadership were well aware of the total failure their system was.

    Zombie soviet agi-prop living on in Western causes and incubating in Western educational facilities is what has caused the new love affair with socialism.

    The walls are closing in on Joe Biden:
    What’s the matter with Joe Biden? He’s a weird dude.

    I once worked with an attractive woman who had a strange encounter with Joe Biden. As a young reporter on Capitol Hill, she got stuck in a melee of reporters shouting questions at the senator. Biden saw her plight and invited her to join him as he marched into an elevator. My former colleague was delighted: here was a rare interview opportunity. As soon as the elevator doors closed, though, Biden took out a Snickers bar and inserted the whole thing into his mouth. He then masticated heavily throughout the ascent and walked off without a word.

    That’s Joe Biden, the man who could well be the next president of the United States. He’s a weird dude.

  21. C.L.

    It will need to be accessible to all without any excessive technical effort. No VPNs.
    It will need to be moderated – lightly – but moderated nevertheless. Otherwise it will fill up with crap like “Brisbane mom makes $2000 a day at home.” or comments made to deliberately shut down the forum.
    It will need a figurehead – how about “Devotees of The Doomlord (PBUH)”

    At the OZ, their MSM-DNC operative Cameron Stewart has parroted the Biden touch story. My comment:

    Cameron, this story is just the basic MSM line, which is serving the reason this story was planted: to clear Biden’s face off the presidential slate for some other Dem candidate. Why can’t The Australian have a US Correspondent who adds one sentence: ‘The complainant was a Bernie operative and now is associated with X campaign.’??

    The BATs of this world—the Blairs, Arderns and Trudeaus (or should it be Trudeaux?)—are growing more numerous; for in politics, as in many other things, demand creates its own supply. Our children seem to be increasingly indoctrinated into unthinking and sickly high-mindedness, into a kind of magical thinking in which expressing a wish to do good is nine-tenths of actually doing good, just as possession is nine-tenths of the law.

    Missing Quebec woman was kidnapped, taken to Mali: Human Rights Watch (31 Mar, via BCF)

    A Canadian woman who’s been missing in West Africa for several months has reportedly been kidnapped and taken to Mali.

    Edith Blais of Quebec and her travel companion, Luca Taccheto of Italy, went missing in December while travelling in Burkina Faso.

    They were travelling by car in southwestern Burkina Faso en route to Togo, where they planned to do volunteer work with an aid group.

    The kidnappers may be the usual people we cannot now name, or they may just be bandits. But it’s clear these two kids have imbibed the kool aid in their schooling and had embarked upon a great adventure to help the people of Africa without any understanding of homo sapiens sapiens in the wild. That is what lefty indoctrination in schools gets you.

    Editorial: Labor’s carbon dioxide plan demands close scrutiny

    Editorial, The Daily Telegraph

    According to a firefighting guide published by electric car maker Tesla, extinguishing a battery blaze requires more than the usual resources.

    “If the battery catches fire, is exposed to high heat, or is generating heat or gases, use large amounts of water to cool the battery,” the Tesla guide instructs. And what do they mean, exactly, by “large amounts”?

    The guide continues: “It can take approximately 3000 gallons of water, applied directly to the battery, to fully extinguish and cool down a battery fire.”

    That works out to around 11 tonnes. Quite how this fits with Labor’s aim for 50 per cent of all new car sales by 2030 to be electric is unclear. Miniature Warragamba dams at all city intersections, perhaps.

    Evolving technology should eventually reduce that required water abundance. But other elements of Labor’s carbon dioxide policy demand close scrutiny.

    “Labor will also work with industry to introduce vehicle emissions standards,” the policy announcement declares.

    “Australia is now one of the only developed nations without vehicle emissions standards in place.”

    This is simply not true. Australia has had vehicle emissions standards since 1972, and they have become progressively tighter during the decades since.

    What Labor means is we have no standard for carbon dioxide emissions. There is a lack of precision in Labor’s words.

    Additionally, a plan by Labor to slash industrial emissions by 45 per cent during the coming decade would clearly involve some kind of carbon trading scheme — despite Labor leader Bill Shorten’s pledge that there will be no carbon tax or carbon pricing mechanism.

    Again, language is important. On other matters, Labor’s policy is also unclear: “Labor will restore and reform important institutions like the Climate Change Authority.”

    The use of “restore” suggests a revival of the Julia Gillard’s pointless and expensive Climate Commission, which basically provided government salaries to leading climate change alarmists for doing what they do anyway. After the Commission was abolished in 2013, it continued as a private initiative.

    Labor is leaving many doors open with its climate policy. The overriding concern, obviously, is that Labor’s ambitions will mean a great increase in costs for ordinary Australians.

    Just as planned by Maurice Strong in 1992. What he said at the Rio Earth Summit:

    We also need new ways of financing environment and development objectives. For example, emission permits that are tradeable internationally offer a means of making the most cost-effective use of funds devoted to pollution control while at the same time providing a non-budgetary means of effecting resource transfers. Taxes on polluting products or activities, like the CO2 taxes now being levied or proposed by a number of countries, could also be devoted to financing of international environment and development measures.

    They work slowly, but they do get there in the end.

    I watched the ABC drama ‘The Heights’ again last Friday and I had a slight surprise.

    Sure, the dialogue is still try-hard tinny, the acting indifferent, the Indigenous shtick even more cloying and the caricature Irish barfly so racist that someone need to tell Timmy, but one scene had a rich, raddled old bourgeoise progressive whitey woman – a typical ABC viewer, one might opine – emoting passionately about Australia’s shocking treatment of refugees, but with the clear aim – unsuccessful – of getting the young Iranian character to shag her.

    It’s by no means the level the originality, unorthodoxy courage or honesty one normally expects of ABC drama – I expect none of those qualities – and I’m puzzled as to how it got through.

    Regrettably, I think your correct (about the blog). Initial thoughts:

    It should probably be hosted on an overseas server if only to cloak it from direct Australian based interference;

    I suspect that VPN’s will eventually be necessary for all blogs that don’t tow the correct political line (and to discourage snooping by nosy Govt departments) but that will only be a suggestion to blog contributors;

    Unquestionably moderated otherwise it will be overrun as you describe;

    Does it need a figurehead? This is a double edged sword. A high profile figurehead will raise the profile but will certainly result in more rabid undesirables or attempts to shut it down, meaning more moderation, which defeats the raison d’etre of a Cat-like blog.

    A ‘membership fee’? Something small (a few dollars annually) but that money can pay for hosting and contribute (however little) to the Administrator’s time. A fee may also limit the more rabid commentators as they won’t be able to post ‘ad hoc’ to a ‘members only’ blog. Fee only applies if you wish to post – no cost for lurkers. Fee cannot be paid by credit card to preserve anonymity – cash deposit with blog non de plume as ID or, Bitcoin accepted.

    The Liberals and, more importantly, the nation are now suffering the consequences of not opposing and exterminating the ‘climate change’ hoax in toto, ab initio. But Australia’s gas-lit fag conservatives decided to magic their way through by accepting the ‘climate change’ premise in its entirety, deciding instead to win plaudits (and elections) by being more ‘responsible’ climateers. This country’s political ecosystem is now being overrun by the toad of leftism, for want of a natural predator.

    Shorten’s ‘there will be no carbon tax under a government I lead‘ moment:

    “There will be no carbon tax, carbon pricing mechanism, or government revenue,” Labor says.

    “Rather, Labor will reduce pollution from the biggest industrial polluters by extending the existing pollution cap implemented by Malcolm Turnbull.”

    Businesses that choose not to shut down operations to remain under the “pollution cap“, will be allowed to purchase offsets on the international carbon market.

    The carbon pricing mechanism they will be forced into is substantially driven by competition from the EU ETS market – which, thanks to intervention by the EU, is running at €20 per ton (up from ~€7) and heading to €100 per ton by 2020.

    So, no government revenue and nothing at all to do with Labor. No siree.

    Just a gentle flow of Australian wealth into the grateful hands of oligarchs in China, Brazil, and India.

    Large housing estates with tiny blocks of land are ‘turning communities into ghettos’
    Danielle Le Messurier, Exclusive, The Daily Telegraph

    Subscriber only

    Young families dreaming of buying a home with space to roam in Western Sydney will have to look elsewhere with the once generous blocks shrinking to the size of a tennis court.

    Furious council representatives say the trend towards large housing estates with tiny blocks of land is turning communities into “ghettos” and goes against the character of the region.

    Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils president Barry Calvert said Western Sydney was “known for its space — not for tight little houses with no backyards”.

    “In many of those new ones there’s not even enough room to get your garbage bin down the side,” Mr Calvert said.

    “That’s the sort of thing that happens in Newtown — that’s not what should be happening in Western Sydney.”

    Increasing numbers of posts and comments on the Cat despair at the irrationality of Australia’s self destructive climate change policies and the apparent public support for them. IMO this is not a problem that can be tackled directly by counter arguments for a range of reasons. The foremost among them is the steep decline in the habits of rational thinking as opposed to emotionalism in the West.

    A lot of it has to do with our increased affluence. Emotion-based decision making is a luxury you can only afford when your survival is not at stake. It seems like the restoration of rationality must await the loss of affluence and declining civil order (guaranteed over time under current policies) or a war.

    Humans always seem to need to have their backs against the wall before their frontal lobes kick in. Do we really have to go through this before Australians snap out of it?

    Reportedly, “Twelve days after Wayne wrote the document that formally created Apple, he returned to the registrar’s office and renounced his role in the company”, therefore relinquishing his equity in exchange for US$800 on April 12, 1976.[11][13]

    Chris Kenny doing a sterling job on the non-biased ABC :

    ABC hits heights of hypocrisyCHRIS KENNY
    12:00AM APRIL 1, 2019COMMENTS
    Ah, hypocrisy, we love it don’t we. Media commentators especially enjoy pointing out hypocritical contradictions in politics. And why not?

    What could be more telling, for instance, than pointing out that the ultra-nationalists of One Nation are willing to spruik Australian political outcomes to suit potential foreign donors? Or that a leading figure in a party cracking down on negative gearing as a sop to the rich forgot about his investment property?

    Or even how a politician advocating family values has taken up with his staffer? But too often media hypocrisy is left unexposed. Which is why it was gratifying to see The Australian follow up my Sky News Kenny On Media revelation last week about the ABC’s dishonesty over the consequences of giving a platform to extremists.

    This relates to an ABC radio and online report that rightly made a big deal about how the alleged Christchurch terrorist had responded directly to Australian extremist Blair Cottrell on social media after he made an appearance on national television.

    The ABC did not mention on which station or program Cottrell had appeared; perhaps hoping their audiences would assume it was Sky News because the ABC has been critical of an appearance by Cottrell on Sky News last year. But the timeline of events made clear that the ABC had been deliberately deceptive.

    There was only one program the alleged terrorist could have been responding to, so the ABC clearly decided to hide this fact.

    The viewer — now known as an alleged terrorist charged over the assassination of 50 Muslims at prayer — was watching Cottrell on ABC TV in 2016.

    Why would the ABC not include this fact?

    The Australian pursued the issue and reported this response: “An ABC spokeswoman said Mr Cottrell has ‘made TV appearances on a range of programs and networks over the years, including Seven, Nine, the ABC and Sky News Australia.

    “It was decided not to specify any of them in this report so as not to detract from the central and very important focus of the story, that being his connections to white supremacy groups in Australia,” she said.

    What a cop out. The ABC continues to smear Sky News partly because Cottrell once made an appearance (Sky News subsequently banned him and axed the show he appeared on) yet the national broadcaster failed to mention he appeared at least twice on the ABC and that crucially, it was an ABC appearance that triggered a direct response from the alleged Christchurch terrorist praising Cottrell.

    As ever, imagine their response if it was another media organisation playing these games of double standards and omissions.

    It is not as though the national broadcaster doesn’t have form. The ABC has infamously given platforms to Zaky Mallah on Q&A as they have done more than once to David Hicks.

    The ABC has often talked down the threat of terrorism and condemned discussion of issues around Islamist extremism, encouraging arguments of rampant Islamophobia and attacking conservative commentators for “whipping up anti-Muslim sentiment.” There is much to discuss so let’s allow room for disagreement. But there is a red line everyone should recognise — violence.

    Condoning violent responses, encouraging them, making excuses for violence or even joking about invoking it always amounts to going too far.

    Yet here, too, the ABC falls into hypocrisy and, predictably, its stumbles always fall in a way that confirm its ideological leanings. Listening to ABC radio recently I was shocked to hear a casual joke and shared laugh from a presenter about a wistful absence of conservatives being murdered — but “not through the want of trying or wishing”.

    It was a joke in poor taste but it reveals much. I’ll broadcast it on television tonight before they delete it from their files.

    One reader Paul from QLD commented on the case of one Benjamin Law who wanted of gr a p e conservative politicians who did not support SSM:

    stopped thinking that the ABC was honest or impartial or decent when the Benjamin Law comments appeared regarding “hate ef f ing” coalition pollies he disagreed with. This suggestion of h o m o s e x u a l r a p e of your political enemies was met with chuckles by most at the ABC (and a notable ALP pollie) and Benjamin continues to be employed by the ABC. What a fine, upstanding example he is to young people and a contributor to Australian culture and discourse. And our taxes fund him. Sigh.

    Erdogan’s AKP trailing in Ankara election, ahead in Istanbul: state media

    Istanbul (AFP) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AKP was trailing in a very tight race for the capital Ankara in Sunday’s local elections, state media reported, in what would be a major defeat for the ruling party after a decade and a half in power.

    With 75 percent of the ballot boxes counted, the opposition CHP candidate for Ankara mayor was ahead with 49.81 percent of votes. the AKP close on 47.82 percent, Anadolu state agency reported citing initial results.

    The AKP candidate for Istanbul mayor was ahead with 49.68 percent of votes to the CHP’s 47.77 percent, with 88 percent of ballot boxes opened, it said.

    Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party (AKP) have won every vote since the party first came to power in 2002, but this time, analysts say, the party risked losing Ankara and faced a challenge in Istanbul as an economic slowdown took hold.

    IMO this is not a problem that can be tackled directly by counter arguments for a range of reasons. The foremost among them is the steep decline in the habits of rational thinking as opposed to emotionalism in the West.

    To use behavioural economics jargon, we are suffering from the effects of ‘bounded rationality‘ – Herbert Simon’s concept of “rationality tailored to cognitively limited agents“.

    Simply dejargonized, faced with a seemingly ‘intractable problem’ and struggling with their own limited/poor cognitive ability, our elected representatives are making shit decisions because that’s the best they can do.

    What First Responders Don’t Know About Fiery Electric Vehicles

    Lithium-ion batteries, once ignited, are extremely difficult to douse.

    After an out-of-control Tesla Model S plowed into a stand of palm trees on a highway median outside Fort Lauderdale last month, police rushed to put out the ensuing blaze using a department-issued fire extinguisher. It was a wasted effort. The car kept on burning after the crash, which killed the driver.

    The police may not have known lithium-ion batteries inside electric vehicles, once ignited, can’t be put out with chemicals from a conventional extinguisher. The battery fires are susceptible to a self-destructive chain reaction known as thermal runaway, causing a feedback loop of rising temperatures. The Tesla fire stumped a series of first responders in Florida. Firefighters eventually doused the flames with water, which seemed to work, but the wrecked car reignited twice more after being towed away. That prompted what a police report later termed “extraordinary measures,” including a call to Broward County’s hazmat unit for advice on stamping out the fire once and for all.

    The accident illustrates the challenges faced by first responders unfamiliar with the special characteristics—and hazards—of electric vehicles’ powertrains. Safety experts say the only way to extinguish a lithium-ion battery inside a car is with thousands of gallons of water, much more than what it takes to stop a fire in a typical gasoline engine. The other option is to just let it burn itself out. “It’s such a difficult fire because it takes so much water to put out,” said Robert Taylor, fire marshal in Davie, Fla., where the crash occurred.

  98. Evilelvis:

    The Greatest Generation did all the dirty work but no one left at home bothered marginelising the commy slime that remained, unionists, public servants, etc.

    To be fair, Peter Greste did say the investigation “raises ethical questions”, but only after vigorously defending Al Jazeera as just a sort of Arabic BBC (actually, that’s probably not far off the mark these days) and describing the lead investigator, a former ABC journalist, as “well respected”. This was in an interview with the ABC’s Steve Austin, who used to be rather open minded, even hosting Peter Hitchens as a regular a few years back, but who now seems to have drunk the ABC kool aid. Naturally, being the ABC, no alternative voice was given air time.

    The pop out door handles on that tesla failed and so the people who tried to rescue the driver were unable to open the doors. The emergency door release is on the inside of the car… somewhere. Tesla’s are an ideal euthanasia compartment. Any issue that punctures on of the 7000 odd lithium cells can start the chain reaction to a 1000C fire.

    Lithium Ion batteries over a certain rating may not be carried on board commercial aircraft because of the fire risk. Airlines can assess the risk of high powered batteries and arrange for them to be carried as cargo in specialised containers. Naturally many $$$$ will be charged to the the consignor.

    Even personal device Li ion spare batteries like iPod or phone must be transported in carry on baggage, not in checked baggage.

    I would not be surprised if 80% of air travellers were totally unaware of Li ion battery restrictions or simply ignore the regulation.

    Good afternoon all
    I’m seeking some information for DD who is up to the end of WW2 in her Year 10 history studies. I seem to remember someone (Top Ender???) posting a fairly comprehensive list of facts regarding the Japanese and the Americans at the end of the war…a list of facts that should be known before passing judgement on whether the US should have dropped the bombs or not. I’d be very grateful if someone could point me in the direction of those facts so that I can share them with DD to balance out the (biased) textbook. We’ve learned to take anything that is listed under the word “Contestability” with a very large grain of salt e.g. blitzkreig was a term invented by the Times to cover over Britian’s early failures in the war.
    I’m hoping I’m remembering properly. Many thanks 🙂

In his acceptance speech he condemned Australia’s treatment of asylum seekers and declared that ‘the era of the dominant, white, able-bodied man is over’. He added: ‘We see a perverse attempt to disown the monster of Fraser Anning without attempting to acknowledge and take responsibility for the collective roles played in the creation of that monster.’ He went on to say that Australia was in desperate need of a parliament ‘as diverse and as vibrant and as energetic as the community it is sent to represent’

    Mole – maybe you could apply for a small grant to investigate this phenomena: the public toilets near the end of the Nightcliff Pool carpark in Darwin.

    For a while there was a practice by some members of the local community (who appeared to have been both sleeping rough overnight, and possibly subsisting on curry or baked beans, or perhaps baked beans curry) gleefully using the facilities in a unique fashion. Step one, enter dunny. Step two, leave door open. Step three, drop dacks and bend at hips at 90 degrees. Step three – let rip – a moist, brown cloud of various strength and density.

    As you might imagine there was a degree of public horror surrounding these events, but also fascination at the sheer amounts involved, especially for younger members of the community. On most occasions the Darwin City Council would quickly dispatch a clean up crew (HAZMAT suits, gurni etc.). Pretty awful if I’m honest, and would give the 70+ crowd a run for their money.

    Not only a racist, but an intolerant, foul-mouthed, hysterical, mansplaining chauvinist. The Oz ‘Cut and Paste’ today with a snippet from The West Australian 14 March:

    “A Greens Senator [Jordan Steele-John] was tonight forced to make an embarrassing public apology after after telling The West Australian columnist Gemma Tognini to ‘shut the f**k up” and calling her ‘right wing nut job” for her article saying students skipping school to protest action of climate changes were being used as political pawns..”

    Ms Tognini, BTW, seems to be of Italian heritage. So much for encouraging ‘diversity’.”

    This creep called Senator Jordan Steele-John…don’t you just love the double barrelled name…reeks of white male privilege…for a white man he is…is way, way more insidious and way, way more dangerous than Pauline or Fraser.

    This creep is one of the verminous Greens that our current toad of a PM is saying that the LNP will preference above One Nation. Wow….great political acumen there…don’t you think? No wonder the Labor party and Bill Shitten are laughing….at the end of the day all we can do too is laugh at the stupid effing Liberals.

    Even with Bruso’s story deleted from Facebook, screenshots and copy-and-pasted posts went viral, stoking a tense atmosphere already generated from Stanford’s earlier allegation. The larger narrative of bigoted white men patrolling Portland to attack LGBT people then began to take on a life of its own. Activists sent out “attack alerts” warning the queer public to carry Mace and to travel in groups. Other activists circulated photos and addresses of the alleged attackers in flyers around town and on social media posts.

    The city was in a panic, and it focused its energy on one main antagonist: the Proud Boys, a right-wing, pro-Trump fraternity and drinking club. They were blamed for the indiscriminate violence.

    The group has infamously been involved in bloody street brawls against Antifa. Members of the group are currently facing charges for a 2018 fight in the Portland area.

    “These are the faces of the attackers that have been terrorizing the queer/trans community lately. If you see any of these faces in public, hit them with a brick, because the police don’t do anything to stop it,” read one widely shared post on Instagram. It included a group photo of the men and names.

    As noted before the left are generally inept at argument.

    In my experience they do not actually argue with the tools of reason, but present their own versions of facts.

    My BIL (who is a worthy enough fellow in his way) could almost be the holotype. Just when we get to the meat of a discussion and he will blurt out some ‘fact’.

    This technique has an advantage for them: Logic is always there where the people are. If you are caught in a contradiction then there is no wheedling out of it. Facts take time and research and cannot be settled on the spot.

    It is also means that it is more important to establish memes and slogans than to understand. And of course, the left is awash in these things. People can easily get ten people to speak in unison. But if you ask ten people to work out a mathematical problem you will get ten people solving it in their individual brains after which they may all agree.

    One thing that also follows from this is that I will admit when I do not know something, he will not. So he has ‘the last word’, and counts that as victory, even though he is wrong.

    He was certain Trump was going down. Told me about the evidence they had against him last year. Soon I expect he will tell me Meuller never mattered.

    A good question

    You might think that a book about Socialism, the failed idea, would detail the catastrophic results that attempts to build Socialist societies have achieved in practice. You would be wrong. In Kristian Niemietz’s new book these are taken as read. The horrors of Stalin’s gulags and mass murders are all assumed, as are the mass starvation and purges of Mao’s China. The utter failures of North Korea, Albania and the others, up to and including Venezuela, are treated as fact, which they are. The book concerns itself with quite another question. Why, given the overwhelming evidence of what Socialism has achieved, have Western academics sought to deny that any of these examples featured it?

    https://www.weeklytimesnow.com.au/news/police-investigating-after-duck-rescuer-struck-by-car-driven-by-duck-hunter-at-lake-connewarre/news-story

    The duck rescuer claims she was taken to hospital after suffering a twisted knee, lower back pain and bruising.

    Another woman who saw the incident was taken to hospital reportedly suffering from shock.

    But the driver says he has given dashcam footage to police showing he was driving at 1km/h at the time.

    However, the driver, who wished to remain anonymous, has disputed the woman’s version of events.

    “I was doing a U-turn as I needed to reverse the boat in and this woman refused to get out of the way,” he said.

    “I had my horn on and I was slowing down to a complete stop.

    “The dashcam footage showed I touched her at 1km/h then went to 0km/h.

    “She takes one step back still holding her cigarette and coffee before walking away.”

    Andy Meddick, Animal Justice Party MP for Western Victoria, who attended the scene, said the driver must have ­realised he had struck the woman but still started his day of shooting.

    “This aggressive behaviour is disgusting, but, unfortu­nately, not surprising coming from a man who gets his thrills from shooting and killing wildlife,” Mr Meddick said.

    Kristian asks why Socialism is so popular today, especially among young people. The obvious answer is that they lack experience of the world and are happy to dwell in a world of theory untempered by it. A less obvious answer, he tells us, is that socialism feels right. That stuff about equality and fairness appeals to our instincts. Capitalism, by contrast, feels wrong. It is a hard exercise to override those feelings and look at the facts of what each achieves in practice.

    Over several threads, I have been having exchanges with a commenter at donaitkin.com. After some nudging, I finally got him to set out his ideas for future ekectricity generation in Australia.

    I won’t repeat his ideas here, but my summary was:

    If I could attempt to summarise your proposal, it seems to be “If I close my eyes very tight, and wish very hard, everything will be OK”

    I later responded with the following ideas:

    “Some quick thoughts.

    First, I agree with you that “the future outcome [should] be decided by engineerng, economics and accounting not hysteria.”

    First, the engineering. All technologies must be treated equally.

    Legislation must specify the voltage and frequency of the electricity to be provided by any generator operating in the market. The responsibility for meeting these specifications must lie with the generator.

    Generators must also meet a reliability criterion. To avoid cherry picking times to suit particular technologies, the time against reliability will be measured must cover at least a 24 hour period. Failure to deliver continuous power across the period must incur penalties equivalent to the economic damage caused.

    Generators must provide at their expense the transmission systems to connect their generators to the existing national grid. If someone wants to build a nuclear power station at Lightning Ridge, they pay for the link to the national grid. Same for a solar or wind farm there.

    Next the accounting. There must be no cross subsidies between technologies. All must get the same taxation concessions.

    Finally the economics. Purchases of output must be on a best price for the period. Failure to deliver, including failure to meet the specifications, must incur penalties commensurate with the economic damage caused.

    One final point you did not mention, penalties must apply to all technologies for, as an example, death or injury to protected species.

    Think of this as a good start.”

    I had to look it up, but it seems that a ‘normal’ ticket to a football game is between $40-110 for adults at Adelaide Oval which excludes any food/drink which I imagine are at extortionate prices. Therefore, free entry (and a free bus ride!!) would be just what the doctor ordered for the denizens of Adelaide and their families.

    The fact that its AFLW is probably incidental – what else are you going to do in Adelaide on a Sunday afternoon that’s free – other than polish up your knives and rinse out the barrels, or maybe, visit your 1st cousin and talk about expanding the family.
