    A fake news classic in the SMH
    First, the home page hook:

    A UNSW researcher has found more women in Australia are purchasing sex as a way to guarantee consent and condom compliance.

    Through to the ‘report’: Women buying sex to ensure safe experience.

    Rachel* was in her 40s when she first purchased sex.

    As a transgender woman, she had experienced life-long reservations about her own body and didn’t want to risk her emotional and physical security by diving into online dating. After talking to a friend in the industry, she contacted a sex worker.

    “It was like hitting a gold mine,” she said.

    So a bloke went to a prostitute.

    ‘When they told the school’s deputy principal about their son’s behaviour, “he commented, ‘Well, we all know he won’t achieve anything with a butter knife.’”

    Except perhaps in the judicial system, it would be hard to find a professional – or perhaps more accurately, sub-professional – group less accountable for its performance and behaviour than ACT government schoolteachers.

    Thanks Mark, that’s what I was hoping.

    The building in question is a 25 year old, very tiny, 2 bed cottage in a street of 4, 5 & 6 bdrm houses. Repairing it to its original condition seems a waste of time and resources.

    It will I’m sure they are not in the business of wasting money.
    Word of caution, they can also be stubborn when the client appears to be “greedy” in their eyes, by getting overinflated counter quotes.

    Be reasonable and consider everything carefully, all I’m saying.

    47-year-old Sydney escort John said the internet has made it possible for Australian women to seek out a sexual experience outside of real-world dating.

    “I got into sex work nine years ago because my IT business was ruined by the global financial crisis,” he said. “I think that women are feeling more confident in taking control of their sexuality and choosing how they experience it rather than feeling compelled to stick to traditional forms of dating and relationships.”

    Very clever and cutting, indeed, Numbers Ho. The F111 aircraft wasn’t effective in Australian service,

    But its wonderful political promise helped keep the Coalition in power until 1972.
    In that sense, it was effective until Australian voters saw through the Red Menace scam.

    The trouble with slithering is that eventually you lose control and slide right off the highway.
    Or the runway if you happen to be in an F111.

  21. Knuckle Dragger

    The aircraft museum in Darwin is a gem. It’s in a shit shot, opposite an industrial area but is excellent for whiling away a few hours. Kiddies love it.

    The B52 is an even more remarkable beast up close. The specimen on display has, from memory, a palm tree or similar painted on its tailfin which my genius has interpreted as coming from a squadron based in Hawaii or somewhere.

    Also, all the planes and choppers have signs on them and little ropes out front that say ‘Do Not Enter The Cockpit’.

    This is clearly a dare.

  22. pete m

    Helen, look for the section usually called “how we pay claims”.

    You will almost certainly find any lump sum option is entirely at their discretion.

    However, if your friend advises them he wants to renovate and replace the property they should be happy to then insure something with a higher value.

    He needs to have a chat with them.

    If it gets prickly he can just refuse to agree on the scope of works or sign any agreement with the builder and by being a pain to deal with they will likely cave in if they first didn’t.

    Note owner does not need to sign anything with the builder this is an insurance job they are paying for so they should solely contract with builder.

    If your friend wants legal help happy for sinc to pass on my email to you no charge.

    Belated, but one of the best WIPs ever. Good work Tom.

    The snippet about all the coppers turning out to reports of a naked chick is, according to my good friend, both all too true and a trap for young players which is only ever avoided by bitter experience.

    A job coming over the radio of a naked woman somewhere in public attracts the undivided attention of every copper everywhere, and they drop everything and race as fast as they can to wherever she’s supposed to be – thinking, of course, that the ladeee in question is some sort of cross between Jessica Alba and Emily Ratjowxkzcki.

    Invariably, the subject of the job turns out to be some heaving, gut-tatted manatee that’s 75% cellulite, has shit itself and is lying on the middle of the road pouring the remnants of a Woodstock can over itself.

    Some days, they just can’t pay you enough.

    ‘Have you ever gone on that thing Des? ‘

    Only once, when it opened, just, as they say, for the ride. It was crawling with ticket inspectors, all of them obese, a bit dingy, I thought, given that it was early days and they could have cut new travellers some slack.

    The interior ergonomics – seating, hand rails etc – seemed to be shoddy and poorly designed, but I’m no expert. On the other hand, you can stand upfront and see where you are going, although the TWU will probably put a stop to that soon.

    The Australian stevedores available to help unload were usually middle-aged men.
    [41]
    capable of handling not more than 9 tons per hatch per hour, as compared with the 25 tons that the U.S. troops could discharge. Their ways were exasperating. They had a break in the middle of the morning for smoking—called a “smoke-o” —and another in the afternoon for tea, with one man on the pier delegated to keep the water hot for the tea; in this manner, one impatient Ordnance officer noted, they wasted two or three hours a day. They would not work in the rain and observed strict union regulations on hours, refusing to work on Saturday afternoons or Sundays, even though ships were docking with badly needed supplies, and threatening to strike when troops were assigned to do the emergency unloading. 18

    QLD liars going the whole hog to get re-elected:

    Queensland public servants to be given huge bonus

    Jack McKay The Sunday Mail September 22, 2019

    Over 200,000 Queensland public servants are set to be given a $1,250 bonus under a staggering quarter of a billion dollar cash splash from the Palaszczuk Government. Treasurer Jackie Trad announced the extraordinary one-off bonuses in a lunch time media release yesterday — insisting the move was about driving economic growth.

    It came as the Government committed to maintaining future public service pay increases of up to 2.5 per cent at a time when Brisbane’s most recent inflation rate was recorded at 1.7 per cent.

    The bonuses have prompted Opposition claims that the Government is trying to buy votes, with the LNP calling for the payments to be tied to guaranteeing better services.

    The payments will apply to almost all public servants, including nurses, teachers and desk workers, who sign up to new agreements finalised between March, 2018 and March, 2021.

    But senior executives and senior officers will be exempt.

    Ms Trad defended the $1,250 payments, which are expected to set taxpayers back about $250 million and be paid out to about 200,000 workers, saying they would provide additional economic support while “maintaining the budget balance”.

    “The Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia last month called for all levels of government to provide additional support above existing caps on wages growth to drive economic growth,” she said.

    LNP deputy leader and treasury spokesman Tim Mander said the bonuses were a “desperate taxpayer funded cash splash for votes”.

    “Jackie Trad has already blown the budget by $1.4 billion last year so this taxpayer funded cash splash should be tied to guaranteeing better services as Labor have created a major health crisis with waiting lists blowing out and education results slipping,” he said.

    Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace later told reporters that she believed Queenslanders would find that the payments are an “appropriate spend”.

    “We believe that’s good for the economy, we believe it’s good for our balanced budget and we believe it’s good for workers,” she said.

    “This is fiscally responsible.”

    The Minister said some of the payments would be made ahead of Christmas, putting more cash in the pockets of public sector workers during a busy time of the year.

    She also said new agreements would include productivity improvement clauses.

    The Government yesterday confirmed more than a dozen agreements were still being negotiated, while four have been referred to the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission for arbitration.

    Queensland Council of Unions Acting general secretary Michael Clifford said they welcomed the public sector bonuses.

    “It should also put pressure on the private sector to lift wage increases,” he said.

    So Beijing announced Made in China 2025, a 10-year plan to advance its manufacturing base through cutting-edge technologies. “It set out ambitions to be number one globally in electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, AI, robotics, advanced manufacturing. If it’s high-tech, China wants to lead, not follow,” says Michael Dunne, a China automotive industry expert.

    Dunne, who was been a China consultant for 30 years, says its control economy means its businesses operate very differently from those in the West. “An order comes down from on high and once it’s understood, everyone goes into action,” he told a recent edition of US podcast Autoline This Week. “It gives China one of its greatest advantages: it can move very quickly to establish infrastructure, new plant, charging stations — you name it, they have a big edge.”

    Imagine when OBOR offers their victorian andrews satraps the ability to do Skynet on the rfid chips the chicom peoples liberation army has installed in electric vehicles sold into yarragrad. The chicom secret police getting first access to the metadata.

    Tracking devices will soon be fitted to cars registered in China in an effort to tackle the country’s notorious congestion and pollution problem.

    According to The Wall Street Journal, from July the country will begin fitting cars with radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags at registration time. Although the scheme won’t be compulsory at first, it looks likely it will become mandatory for new cars starting from 2019.

    RFID units will be placed on a vehicle’s windscreen, with readers situated at strategic locations by the side of the road. Due to the in-car unit’s lack of a GPS receiver and network connectivity it can’t be used to track a car everywhere and at all times.

    The plan is to use the RFID system to help the government combat congestion and pollution, a problem which has reached worrying levels in many cities throughout the country.

    Depending on what data is stored along with the RFID unit, it could also be used to clamp down on drivers who use fake plates to get around time-of-day or day-of-week driving restrictions.

    The State is very close to being able to ration road access according to social credit scores, even using electric cars as a form of internal passport controlling internal freedom of movement.

    Their billion dollar a year abc bully pulpit to champion this, to save the planet.

    ‘Maybe this isn’t the restaurant for you’: Chef roasts fussy diner who demanded a custom meal because of her intolerances with an incredible online response

    Attila Yilmaz is the owner of Middle Eastern restaurant The Pazar Food Collective
    Chef Yilmaz blasted a dinner for demanding a customised meal at a lower price
    He had banned iPhones, iPads and colouring books at his venue earlier this year

    By Sahil Makkar For Daily Mail Australia

    Published: 11:04 AEST, 22 September 2019 | Updated: 11:05 AEST, 22 September 2019

    A fussy diner got a public roasting by a top chef after ordering a custom made meal because of her ‘incredibly restricted diet’.

    The woman attempted to book a table for eight at the award-winning Middle Eastern restaurant, The Pazar Food Collective, in Canterbury.

    But she got an angry reply from chef Attila Yilmaz when she said she couldn’t order anything from the current menu.

    The would-be customer said she would need to be cooked a lean steak with sweet potato and a side salad but that she was not prepared to pay the same as her friends.

    Mr Yilmaz is no stranger to controversy after previously banning iPhones, iPads, colouring books and building blocks, at his restaurant earlier this year

    I’m in this blokes corner so far.

    ANZ once was the subject of attack by the woke brigade after it was mentioned as financing the then-planned pulp mill in Tasmania.
    The ferals started a campaign against ANZ, and the bank folded, announcing it will not finance the construction of the pulp mill, which was since abandoned.

    Big Australia, with fifteen millions in melbourne, means not everybody can drive and park a car.

    Rationing the road network is a basic foundation of mass millions of population growth into a city of high rise dogbox death traps with no carparks.

    Beijing adopted a lottery policy in 2010 to curb the rising number of new cars in the city. Under the policy, a person must win a license through a lottery before buying a new car.

    “Even though there is strong demand for cars, city policymakers still have to put social fairness as a priority to ensure the effectiveness of existing regulations,” she said.

    He has been in the lottery for six years, but has not yet been lucky enough to get a Beijing license plate.

    Big australia will make us such a wealthy country that we can afford to drive a car once we win the lottery.

    That’s an interesting observation as well known US based old school anal(yst) suggested the the same thing this week. Headcount is collapsing at the big US Money Centre banks as a large portion of the work is being automated. Further along compensation is falling as a % of total costs. If the yield curve rights itself, the fear of recession recedes and Warren , or Warren-like creature doesn’t enter the White House, large bank stocks could double into early 2021.

    Anarchists hijack climate strike in Paris

    By Peter Conradi
    The Times
    50 minutes ago September 22, 2019

    Violence erupted on the streets of Paris on Saturday after “black bloc” anarchists hijacked a peaceful march by 15,000 climate change activists, setting fire to a barricade in the Latin Quarter and smashing the windows of banks and shops.

    The incidents occurred hours after riot police used tear gas to drive away gilets jaunes protesters who had tried to demonstrate on the Champs Elysees, on the opposite side of the Seine. It was the 45th protest by the movement since it began last November.

    Adding to the day of mayhem, several thousand members of Force Ouvriere turned out to vent their grievances. The far-left trade union is unhappy with President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reforms.

    More than 7,500 police were deployed and protests were banned in central parts of the city amid fears that the combined presence of red, yellow, green and black-clad groups would be explosive. By late afternoon there had been more than 160 arrests

    From the Oz.

    The Epstein matter is getting really bizarre. A Florida cop “defects” to Russia and…..

    British intelligence chiefs are concerned that Russia may have obtained kompromat, compromising material, on Prince Andrew over the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

    MI6, the foreign intelligence service, is understood to be concerned about the activities of a former Florida police officer who had access to the investigation into the billionaire paedophile and then moved to Russia.

    The bizarre case of John Mark Dougan, a former deputy in the Palm Beach County sheriff’s office, has provided further evidence that the prince’s repeated efforts to distance himself from allegations of sexual abuse are failing to shield him from the fallout of the Epstein case.
    Read Next

    A security source said last week there were concerns at MI6 about how much Dougan knows of the original police investigation into the multi-millionaire paedophile’s activities and what Dougan may have passed on to Russian authorities.

    Dougan is known to have had contact with Pavel Borodin, a senior Russian government official sometimes referred to as a mentor to President Vladimir Putin.

    Dougan was working in Palm Beach in 2005 when a woman walked into a local police station and claimed that Epstein had paid her 14-year-old stepdaughter $300 to strip to her underwear and perform an “erotic massage”.

    After the Epstein case was reopened in July this year, Dougan claimed on Facebook that he had spoken extensively about it to the investigating officers and still possessed confidential documents that no one else had seen.

    Dougan, a former US marine, later fell out with his bosses, resigned in 2009 and ended up in Moscow. He made his Facebook posts from Russia.

    His intervention alarmed intelligence officials, who appear to have been tracking his activities since he was photographed with Borodin in 2013.

    Andy could be in trouble, but at the same time British Intel can’t be trusted in the least.

    Kyrgios blames Laver Cup loss on spotting ‘hot chick’ in crowd

    Nick Kyrgios has blamed his Laver Cup defeat at the hands of Roger Federer on a loss of concentration sparked by a “really hot chick in the crowd.”

    The Australian firebrand had claimed the opening set of the match but lost a decisive super-tiebreaker gainst the Swiss master 6-7 (5), 7-5, 10-7 in the afternoon session on Day 2 of the competition.

    As he came off court, Kyrgios was caught telling teammates:

    “I lost concentration, I saw a really hot chick in the crowd. Like, I’m being jarringly honest — I’d marry her right now. Right now.”

    Biggest-Ever Climate Protest In Photos: Greta Thunberg And The World’s Youth Demand Action

    While local climate issues were emphasized in the different countries– for example, control of rising sea levels in the Solomon Islands, a ban on toxic waste and new mining in South Africa, controls on air pollution and plastic waste in India, a “green new deal” in the U.S. and U.K. – the global demand was unified around a single theme: Cut emissions and stabilize the climate.

    The truth is women love it and most spend most of theirvyouth making sure it happens.

    Luke 7:36-50 King James Version (KJV)
    36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to meat.
    37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,
    38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
    39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
    40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.
    41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.
    42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?
    43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.
    44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.
    45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
    46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.
    47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.
    48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.
    49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?
    50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

    Purdue Pharma, the company that made billions selling the prescription painkiller OxyContin, filed for bankruptcy in White Plains, New York, days after reaching a tentative settlement with many of the state and local governments suing it over the toll of opioids.

    The filing was anticipated before and after the tentative deal, which could be worth up to $12 billion over time, was struck.

    “This settlement framework avoids wasting hundreds of millions of dollars and years on protracted litigation,” Steve Miller, chairman of Purdue’s board of directors, said in a statement, “and instead will provide billions of dollars and critical resources to communities across the country trying to cope with the opioid crisis. We will continue to work with state attorneys general and other plaintiff representatives to finalize and implement this agreement as quickly as possible.”

    So far the peoples liberation army slave labour fentanyl factories haven’t had to pay a cent.

    More than 70,000 Americans died from drug overdoses last year, and a growing number of those deaths are attributed to the powerful synthetic opioid fentanyl. Journalist Ben Westhoff says the drug, while an important painkiller and anesthesia medicine in hospitals, is now killing more Americans annually as a street drug than any other in U.S. history.

    Westhoff’s book Fentanyl, Inc. examines the manufacture, sale and use of fentanyl and other synthetic drugs. Over the course of his research, he visited two factories in China that make synthetic opioids and ship them to the U.S. or to Mexican drug cartels for distribution.

    The failed war on drugs has handed the concession to win the new opioid wars to the peoples liberation army.

    Once australia’s The Ton became addicted to chicom donors and sponsors, the possibility of any meaningful interference with the flow of plastic Aldi bags full of cash diminished.

    On the Chinese government’s attitude toward fentanyl

    China has big problems with drugs like heroin and meth and ketamine but they don’t have a fentanyl problem like we do in the U.S. And so a lot of people think this is why they haven’t sufficiently cracked down on this huge industry that they have. …

    The big problem in China is that a lot of these drugs which are banned in the U.S. are still legal in China. And so the companies can make them with the full support of the government and have them basically smuggled into the U.S. … The biggest and most disturbing revelation from my book was that not only is China not doing enough to contain this industry, they’re actually encouraging this industry through a series of tax breaks, subsidies and other grants.

    Australias current war on drugs is producing billion dollars a time drug importation shipments, and they are not all caught. Urine analysis of wastewater plants proves that supply is never threatened. The corruption that can be funded by a single billion dollar shipment is too much temptation for australia kleptocracy.

    Australias corruptocrats will ration panadol, so obviously the cheap panadol retailers are not as good a donor class as the pharmacy cartel and the chicom fentanyl factories.

    British intelligence chiefs are concerned that Russia may have obtained kompromat, compromising material, on Prince Andrew over the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

    MI6, the foreign intelligence service, is understood to be concerned about the activities of a former Florida police officer who had access to the investigation into the billionaire pedophile and then moved to Russia.

    The bizarre case of John Mark Dougan, a former deputy in the Palm Beach County sheriff’s office, has provided further evidence that the prince’s repeated efforts to distance himself from allegations of sexual abuse are failing to shield him from the fallout of the Epstein case.

    A security source said last week there were concerns at MI6 about how much Dougan knows of the original police investigation into the multi-millionaire pedophile’s activities and what Dougan may have passed on to Russian authorities.

    Dougan is known to have had contact with Pavel Borodin, a senior Russian government official sometimes referred to as a mentor to President Vladimir Putin.

    Dougan was working in Palm Beach in 2005 when a woman walked into a local police station and claimed that Epstein had paid her 14-year-old stepdaughter $300 to strip to her underwear and perform an “erotic massage”.

    After the Epstein case was reopened in July this year, Dougan claimed on Facebook that he had spoken extensively about it to the investigating officers and still possessed confidential documents that no one else had seen.

    Dougan, a former US marine, later fell out with his bosses, resigned in 2009 and ended up in Moscow. He made his Facebook posts from Russia.

    His intervention alarmed intelligence officials, who appear to have been tracking his activities since he was photographed with Borodin in 2013.

    A western intelligence source said Dougan exhibited a number of “classic traits” that made him suitable for recruitment by a “hostile intelligence service”.

    The source added: “His knowledge of the Epstein case would have been of great interest to Russian intelligence.”

    Contacted in Moscow last week, Dougan acknowledged that information about Epstein might be “incredibly valuable” for any intelligence agency and might give “leverage” over “a guy like Prince Andrew”.

    Asked whether he was controlled by the Russians, he replied: “Oh God, no. I have never met anyone from the government other than immigration officials.”

    He said he thought “a whole bunch of people were involved [with Epstein]” and claimed to know nothing about Andrew.

    The Moscow angle proved only one of the prince’s Epstein-related headaches last week. Buckingham Palace was once again forced to deny that he had any form of sexual relationship with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, the young woman who appeared in a now notorious photograph with Andrew’s arm around her waist.
    Giuffre appeared on American television on Friday with four other alleged Epstein victims to repeat her claims that she once had sex with the prince in a bathroom — and that he had said “thank you” afterwards.

    The other women included Anouska de Georgiou, a British former model who was educated at Marlborough College with Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge. Appearing alongside Ms Giuffre, Ms De Georgiou claimed she had been groomed and raped by Epstein when she was a teenager.

    “When Jeffrey would see me he would physically shake because he wanted to get at me and that was very unnerving,” she told an interviewer from the US NBC network. She said there was a “very special bond” among Epstein’s victims, who were “united against a common enemy”.

    She added: “Jeffrey thought we were disposable and he threw us all away. And look who’s still standing.” Epstein was found dead in a New York jail last month.

    Exactly what Dougan knows remains a mystery. During the original three-year police investigation, which concluded with a controversial plea bargain in 2008, the deputy was stationed near the financier’s Florida mansion. It was from Palm Beach airport that Epstein’s private plane, nicknamed the “Lolita Express”, is alleged to have trafficked underage minors from across the globe.

    In 2016, three years after his meeting with Borodin, Dougan set up a website posing as a Russian hacker called “BadVolf”. Since then he has published the confidential addresses of US public officials and leaked Democratic Party emails that are believed to have been hacked by Russian agents.

    Last week Dougan claimed his encounter with Borodin had been innocent: “I wanted to start doing some business in Russia and I started clicking through Facebook profiles and I found this dude sitting in front of the Russian parliament.

    “I added him as a friend and started conversing with him on Facebook. I asked him for a meeting. As an American, it’s really easy to get meetings with people here.”

    Buckingham Palace declined to comment on Dougan’s activities. The prince has said that he never took part in, witnessed or even suspected any untoward behaviour. But it seems unlikely that the Epstein saga is going away any time soon.
