    I see. Still no quote to back up your fat mouth , numpty. What a surprise

    You and I are completely opposed on the fundamentals of employment environment . While you are determined to give more job opportunities to cheap migrants flooding in from Mumbai, I am dead against importing more third worlders into this country, robbing those opportunities from our youngsters, crush loading our cities and sponging off tax payers. (No wage fixing there, right numpty?)

    All in order to keep wages growth low to negative and save Business from actually investing in local development, while pocketing an ever greater share of GDP.

    The readership will easily work out what a slimey, deceitful piece of work you are. Fk off.

    What a world

    Collingwood suspend two memberships over posts about alleged De Goey indecent assault

    Oh

    the Pies later confirmed the bans were handed out over sexist comments circulating on social media referencing the alleged incident.

    The individuals’ memberships would not be considered for reinstatement until they acknowledged wrongdoing and complete respect and responsibility training, the club said.

    This is an unfortunate juxtaposition to the allegations made against De Goey

    It’s not OK – just as the Catallaxy narrative that there is a major problem with teachers abusing children in public schools is not OK.
    Statistically it’s bullshit.

    The bin chicken doesn’t like public schools and their senior staff being held to the same politically correct standard applied to the Catholic church.

  10. Bruce of Newcastle

    BJ – The Left has been actively protecting schools from scrutiny because teachers’ unions, but the Left has been attacking the Catholic Church because class-enemy. If the same standard was used for the former as for the latter I suspect the results would be quite explosive.

    Trades is the down side of the internet. A big mouth union parasite with a keyboard.

    I see. Still no quote to back up your fat mouth , numpty. What a surprise

    Of course there’s no quote. That’s because you refuse to answer the question, you dishonest dickhead.

    You and I are completely opposed on the fundamentals of employment environment .

    That sentence assumes we’re on a equal footing but we’re not, Trades Hall. You’re a Fairwork supporting parasite whereas I’ve always supported a free and unimpeded labor market.

    While you are determined to give more job opportunities to cheap migrants flooding in from Mumbai, I am dead against importing more third worlders into this country, robbing those opportunities from our youngsters, crush loading our cities and sponging off tax payers.

    Kinship economics again rears its ugly deformed head. Trades Hall sees the economy like any union parasite. He believes its all zero sum. He also has the detestable view that we should pay for his kids.

    (No wage fixing there, right numpty?)

    Lol. The grey labor market is well below the official one, so of course there’s wage fixing, but that comes from Fairwork – not employers and prospective candidates negotiating rates of pay and conditions.

    All in order to keep wages growth low to negative and save Business from actually investing in local development, while pocketing an ever greater share of GDP.

    We have the highest minimum wage rates in the world and Trades Hall wants more. Business should fork out more, according to Trades Hall the union parasite!

    The readership will easily work out what a slimey, deceitful piece of work you are. Fk off.

    I’m sure they do, but what they see is the slimy, hypocritical sack of shit that you are. Pay your own kids the money and don’t expect us to, you parasite.

    Again:

    Do you support Fairwork or a liberalized, open labor market?
    Go!

    Another day in the life of Clive, another legal entanglement.

    The corporate watchdog has charged businessman and former federal MP Clive Palmer with fraud, relating to two payments worth more than $12m during the 2013 election campaign.

    The Australian Securities and Investments Commission charged resources billionaire Mr Palmer with four offences in February: two counts of dishonest use of his position of a director and two counts of fraud.

    But ASIC has now revealed details of its case against Mr Palmer, who has vehemently denied any wrongdoing and says the allegations are “simply made up”.

    Clive’s legal bill must be around $20 million a year.

    Jeez Louise. This has to be a first in oz.

    A 10-year-old boy fishing from a boat was “grabbed” by a shark and pulled into the water off Tasmania‘s northwest coast on Friday afternoon.

    The boy, who suffered lacerations to his arm and cuts to his chest and head, is in a stable condition in Burnie‘s North West Regional Hospital.

    “The boy, from the northwest, was aboard a six-metre vessel on a fishing expedition about 5km from shore with his father and two other men when a shark grabbed him from the boat,” Ambulance Tasmania said in a statement.

    “The boy’s father jumped into the water at which point the shark swam off. The boy, who was wearing a personal flotation device, suffered lacerations to his arm, and other cuts to his chest and head.
    “He is in a stable condition.”

    The attack is the latest in a series in Australian waters.

    My hunch is that we’re fishing their food supplies (other fish) and they’re protected, so there’s now a large number of very hungry sharks skulking around for a feed because there’s so many more of them.

    Brave dad.

    I don’t think so, Tim.
    Two possible contributors.
    1. Overly enthusiastic berley laying;
    2. Gutting and chucking lots of entrails off a stationary/slow moving boat.
    Fisheries authorities have (or are about to depending on where you are) ban chucking entrails overboard from boats towing hooklines to protect birds.
    This could lead to unintended consequences of dumping lots of waste in one go.

    Lol, right over the target. Fatmouth JC is getting all in a panic with the truth bombs.

    Even though the RBA acknowledged low/negative wages growth and immigration are connected, fatmouth slime like JC still wants everyone to believe his plan for ever more migrants here to keep wages lower and prevent job opportunities staying here with our people is a great outcome. There will be all those great bespoke barista jobs available. Negative per capita GDP is good for the soul.Right fatmouth?

    From the same article:

    More drastic measures for everyone, save Professor and Mrs Rait.

    The Strategist

    Until recently, the West’s acquiescence in the face of Chinese assertiveness appeared to have vindicated the CCP’s Hobbesian worldview. Before the rise of Trumpism and the subsequent radical shift in US policy towards China, Chinese leaders had encountered practically no pushback, despite repeatedly overplaying their hand.

    But in Trump and his national-security hawks, China has finally met its match. Like their counterparts in Beijing, the US president and his senior advisers not only believe in the law of the jungle, but are also unafraid to wield raw power against their foes.

    Unfortunately for the CCP, it now has to contend with a far more determined adversary. Worse still, America’s willingness to absorb enormous short-term economic pain to gain a long-term strategic edge over China indicates that greed has lost its primacy. In particular, the US strategy of ‘decoupling’—severing the dense web of Sino-American economic ties—has caught China totally by surprise, because no CCP leader ever imagined that the US government would be willing to write off the Chinese market in pursuit of broader geopolitical objectives.

    For the first time since the end of the Cultural Revolution, the CCP faces a genuine existential threat, mainly because its mindset has led it to commit a series of calamitous strategic errors. And its latest intervention in Hong Kong suggests that it has no intention of changing course.

    Coming to the pub? No, I have to be home by the time Jessica gets here.
    What’s going on? Oh, I have to drop her off at work and then pick her up when she knocks off.
    Golf? No, I only play on the weekends when Jessica wants to. Then we play together*.
    Answer your phone, you cock. Sorry. Jessica and I were talking about both of us giving up smoking.
    You mean you giving up smoking. Yes.
    I mean, what sort of man makes his missus’ own engagement ring, makes a movie, covers the whole fucking thing with love heart effects and pictures of them both and sends it to his family as a Christmas present?

    It’s like seeing Jack Nicholson being arrested at the end of A Few Good Men. Could have been anything, but fucked it up royally. Or like your dog dying.

    At the outset I say Victoria deserves everything it gets; people voted over and over again for more of what they are now copping from their politicians; cops choose to work for the most disgraceful policing pretence in the country (jointly holding the Dead-Man-Monis-is-Our Hero Award won by career interrupted Assistant Colonel Debbie Byrne of NSW Police Pop Ups); residents cannot get enough of those rich cultural North African home invasions; the elderly earned the right to be ignored when they ring 000, for not stopping the rot decades ago by lynching Kirner and Cain; ambulancemen deserve to be pelted with bottles by sub-hooo mans for not going on strike for a couple of months; and so on.

    This encounter offers fabulous comedy value – the police-girlie topped her class in immediate surrender techniques; her shift superintendent topped his in failing to brief his constables in what to say when challenged about their authority – you know, glib one-liners to shut them up; asking permission from the punter to ring her sergeant? – where did that come from? that took the cake.

    Jobs, wages etc. are far more complex than labeling each other names.

    In an unfettered capitalist system with no gov. welfare there would be low wages and hardships.
    Make no mistake, there are, were and will be bloody minded ruthless bosses ready and willing to exploit.

    Saying that one can refuse to work in a job if wages offered are too low is BS, 3 kids a wife and mortgage will see to that.

    In that scenario only the highly skilled and in demand trades and professions could demand the payment they want.
    There was a need for collective muscle, unions.
    That was the situation before gov. intervened.

    I’m not in fav of unions these days, you cannot have the employers being attacked on two fronts.

    “Delta Force” was shot in Israel. The film company flew an American expert to brief the Israeli extras on how to carry out a counter terrorist raid. As he finished his presentation, one of the extras stood up.

    “You are obviously unaware that, like all Israelis, we’ve all done military service. I’m a member of our counter terrorist unit, and I can see at least three others here. Given your recent military record, we reckon we’re better at the job then you.”

    “Delta Force” was shot in Israel. The film company flew an American expert to brief the Israeli extras on how to carry out a counter terrorist raid. As he finished his presentation, one of the extras stood up.

    “You are obviously unaware that, like all Israelis, we’ve all done military service. I’m a member of our counter terrorist unit, and I can see at least three others here. Given your recent military record, we reckon we’re better at the job then you.”

    The military expert flew home that evening.

    Good yarn, true or not.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., continues to dish out six-figure payments to her husband’s firm, which has now received more than $1 million from her campaign this cycle.

    Federal Election Commission records released Tuesday afternoon show that Omar’s campaign funneled $228,384.93 last quarter to the E Street Group, a D.C.-based consulting firm run by the congresswoman’s husband, Tim Mynett. The payments, predominantly for digital and fundraising services, bring the total that Omar’s campaign has sent to Mynett’s firm to just over $1 million for the 2020 cycle.

    That’s because cops don’t know the law and I was crossing state borders for my job the whole time.
    Cops, even when they do know the law think everyone around them is the enemy and a fuckwit and they belong to a special club.
    It may surprise you to know I used to work with the ex senior sergeant of Bourke cops who quit and went out piloting oversize loads, he started me years ago on learning my rights.
    The stories he told me about the women in the force, how they stuffed it, how the young cops have trouble writing up reports because they can’t spell, how they would go to their homes if called out to the blackfellas and just not turn up etc.
    He was from the old school.

    By the way, to those Queenslanders, surprise surprise, people I know who have a pub got told by the AHA that they will most likely be in lock down again soon.
    Funny how they know.

    The anti alcohol wowser groups around the country, and the AHA actually being one of them, are having a ball.
    Anything fun or social that they cannot fully control has pissed them off for years.
    Now they have total control.
    Unless we rebel by either someone of some party coming along to reverse this, we will never have free interaction and fun in pubs, or in many other ventures the bureaucrat wowsers fun haters have been attacking for years.

    the Pies later confirmed the bans were handed out over sexist comments circulating on social media referencing the alleged incident.
    The individuals’ memberships would not be considered for reinstatement until they acknowledged wrongdoing and complete respect and responsibility training, the club said

    Nick, since when did sporting teams think it a good idea to turn on the people who stick with them through thick and thin and who pay their way?

    I don’t thing it’s a good look to be banning members for matters not illegal and beyond the jurisdiction of football clubs. Gee, if the current draconian controls remain in place for much longer in Victoria there will be no-one left with enough money to pay for a membership!

    Struth, thanks for trying to provide a link but it took me only to Amazing Polly.

    I think you need to get your argument straight Mark. I have never argued for fixing wages only fixing our skewed immigration system that brings in over 200,ooo migrants per year over the last decade and more. That is on top of our organic population growth. The clown JC claims I have but he can’t find a single quote of mine to substantiate. No surprise as it’s all lies. His style.

    Beyond that , wages and salaries locally can sort themselves out through supply/demand but without the flood of imported labour to artificially pump prime the supply side, suppressing wages growth and depriving our youngsters of job/career opportunities.

  101. Bar Beach Swimmer

    Included in the same poll was that 57% of the respondents also believe their neighbours are lying and secretly support Trump

    Shades of our pollster from 2016, JC. btw has he given an update yet?

    The Greens staffer who spray painted “No pride in genocide” on a statue of Captain Cook in central Sydney has been compared in court to a “guerrilla in the night” who deliberately fuelled Australia’s longstanding racial tensions.

    Like all hard-left activists, she lied to the court.
    From news.com – Xiaoran Shi released a statement declaring “the real crime is that nobody has been convicted for an Aboriginal death in custody”, after her lawyer Michael Blair had told the court his client took full responsibility for the act.

  104. Salvatore, Social Distance Martyr

    Makka;
    1/. The artificial floor price in wages is set arbitrarily by the FWC (who’re totally inoculated from any adverse consequences of their decisions) & any market or other forces are not a factor in the wage level, how does the import of 200,000 or 2,000,000 or only 20 scrawnies from 3rd world shitholes have any effect?

    2/. Even with (for argument’s sake) the wage reducing effect of supply & demand from the current numbers of 3rd world scrawnies swamping the country, almost nobody in Australia is paid the National Minimum Wage. How does this come to be?

    With rare & difficult to find exception, every employee in Australia is paid above (& measurably above) the National Minimum Wage.

    Employers have to pay the artificially set floor price or else the force of the state will be used to ruin them.

  105. Makka

    Having watched another game of my team throwing in the towel from the first set I can only scream for the sacking of White, Siebold, Nolan and Lockyer. You fkheads have wrecked what was once a great team and club. Nothing short of your dismissals by Sunday will save this team. they have capitulated completely. It’s written all over their stunned mullet faces as try after try was waved through tonight.

    Get Kevie in their – NOW, Brisbane. His #2 must be Gordon Tallis so he can help them to find their spines. Ditch Milford, Boyd, Isarko immediately- pay them out and fuck them off. Put that lzy fk Croft on notice too. Take $2k off player game for every missed tackle. Every player to clean the shithouses at Red Hill.

    Start there and work like dogs to earn the respect of your disgusted fans, you unworthy piles of hot air.

    Agree.
    Didn’t want to involve other aspects only wanted to point out the fallacy of markets fixing everything.
    To a certain degree it’s true but when it comes to who has the upper hand in employment it is not true unless the weaker side is organised and has the power to demand.

    Never was fond of immigration just to increase the population numbers .
    Otherwise I have no problem, with a lot of qualifications which would label me with all the currently popular tags.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Seibold, the coach, thinks he’s an academic. He speaks to brainless mongs in a pseudo intellectual manner that is both needless and above their heads.

    Supportive evidence for this theory – the players can’t work out where to stand in defence, don’t know which opposition players to tackle, and can’t talk to each other to coordinate a defensive line.
    Simple stuff for a coach to fix – normally.

    A little while ago I overheard someone complain that they hated people trying to beg for smokes because “they are a fuckin dollar each”.

    Sooo, does anyone know how BAT FLU hotspots work in NSW?
    I am in the vulnerable classification being 72.. yet live 100mts from the latest NSW hotspot in Wetherill Park and my 1st info on the issue was from a daughter, who lives in Melbourne, ringing me yesterday to ask how I feel. She had seen it on the TV news but as I don’t watch media rubbish had heard nuttin’, nuttin; at all!
    It seems that it was detected several days ago but to date nothing has been said/done around here that I’m aware of .. My property adjoins the shopping centre involved, in fact, I am the closest residential property (fence adjoins & 100mts from restaurant involved) to the outbreak spot yet hadn’t heard anything official or otherwise.
    As far as I’m aware there are no notices posted in the centre and am unaware of any testing being done so how does it work?
    Is the whole idea of a hotspot based on the level of media coverage or does the gummint have a plan?
    Given that I live in a small HC estate and none of the occcupants are jumping up and down you can rest assured that this BAT FLU outbreak isn’t common knowledge .. with this estate being 95% CentreLink dependent you can guarantee if the ethnic masses thought there was a quid to be made out of this situation they’d be screaming blue bloody murder but nary a whisper is doing the rounds!
    Or as they say in the classics ..
    GLADYS, WHERE THE BLOODY HELL ARE YOU .. WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER! ..
    except some of us appear to be more in it than others!
