    Asked if they would be interested in pursuing Rowland, noting that there were others.

    Good stuff LL. We can only hope but they have another four lawsuits against US media corporations still going, so if they can be bothered after all that winning, it might take a while before they get to the dickheads at the ABC.

  2. Good evening all.
    Did anyone else hear Neil Mitchell call those Albanian protesters ‘gorillas’ today just before signing off? Nothing short of astonishing.

    VicPol knows where Dandenong is. Who knew ?

    Exactly.
    Xunts.
    Last year when tall yoofs in singlets were doing ag-burgs and knocking off cars all we heard was … “nuffink we can do. Just hand over the keys”.

    Now?
    A few blokes go for a walk with a boom-box playing “Advance Australia Fair” and the Magda-Cops are all over them.
    .
    They live there.
    They’ve seen this bullshit first hand.

    Just had a thought about Dan Xi-Man throwing the dollies out of the pram over Sco-Mo’s Foreign Relations Bill.

    I would suggest this should be prime example number 14,568 that no Australian Public Service Government ™ should ever again be allowed to negotiate a so called “Commercial in Confidence” agreement ever again.

    Thank you for your thoughts above mister lee

    True Jupes.
    With the money from the US lawsuits he could take on anyone.
    Who knows if he wants to?
    Anyways, I did say that, whatever comes or goes, to let him know that his cause is known and supported in Australia.

    Commercial-in-confidence has a place in the commercial world.
    It has no place in executed government contracts as far as commercial terms go.
    Yes, it has a place during tender evaluation and negotiation. Losing bidders will always try to de-rail and destabilise negotiations by spreading dis-information.
    After the contract is executed, suppliers may want to protect their technical IP.
    That is OK.
    Easy to redact technical terms whilst releasing commercial terms.
    In Government contracts “Commercial-in-confidence” means “Dan would rather you didn’t know.”

    More power than that bloke with the little moustache

    BERLIN: Most of Germany will impose a minimum fine of 50 euros ($59) for breaching mask-wearing rules as coronavirus infections rise again, Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday after a virtual meeting with the country’s state governors.
    Officials also agreed to extend a ban on big events where social distancing and contact tracing cant be ensured until the end of December.

    Just emerged from the slit trench I dug in the backyard.

    No complete and total global meltdown as yet. The night, however, remains young.

    28 August was the day mentioned. Stocked up on durries, identified some neighbours who’d have lots of food and are easy marks as well. Can’t be too prepared, I always say.

    Yarra Valley Water advises inmates in Melbournes 99 outer eastern suburbs to boil their water due to potential contamination

    I’m in an affected suburb and feeling smug that I insisted on a Billi boiling/chilled filtered water tap in the new kitchen two years ago. I flaunt the Vic regulations on the filter refills as well and buy the disallowed (in Vic) .2 micron filter from foreign supplier in far off Sydney. Apparently the health boffins here don’t like you removing fluoride from your drinking water. That’s a surprise.

    I’ve totally enjoyed making tea today.

    Am I allowed to suggest that the female referee at the rugby game between the Force and Brumbies is less than impressive.
    She might be a great referee, but it somehow does not feel quite right

    I’ve got past that same feeling after watching Amy Perrett over many seasons. She has been on the sideline and in the middle at Shute Shield level for a few years now, and has done a lot of touch judge duties in Super Rugby.
    It did take me some time to get used to the idea. Players seem to have accepted her quickly.
    She’s just another ref now.
    On tonight’s performance, a good one.

    best i ever heard, and it may be hearsay upon hearsay, was the ‘bois’ in St Kilda grabbed a safe – pre ATM days – and after performing all their safe cracking technology kicked it off a cliff down Portsea way in the hope it would smash apart on the rocks below.

    No rocks.

    Interesting link, thank you.

    When the United Sates Navy recommissioned the Iowa class battleships in 1981, the experts condemned the move. Where would they get the crews with the specialist skills to man those ships?

    At the same time, the Navy was getting hundreds of letters from the veterans of the class – the oldest was nearly 80 years old – offering their services – “I might not be able to go to sea, but I can still train the young fellows…”

    Had a friend in what was MFB back some lifetime ago.

    One night we went from Echuca to top end of Lake Boga where he played the bag pipes.

    11pm at night.

    About a thousand birds shit themselves and took off faster than the old WWII water birds did and his old Brigade Captain roared out at us across the water.

    Many beers, much food and lots of laughs and sad stories later we got back to Echuca about 5am and went to our respective workplaces.

    Ch7 News tonight said that a backup plant had failed causing the water contamination to occur.

    If that is so, Vic Govt can spend billions on not building a road and a desal plant that has never operated ,yet can’t do fundamental maintenance properly on our vital basic water infrastructure? Is this another clusterfk cover up like the quarantine hotels?

    By the look of it Lin Wood is not representing Kyle Rittenhouse – though is/was involved in finding an attorney for Rittenhouse.

    Yes, but I think we can rest assured that he will be all over the defamation case(s) when the time comes for Rittenhouse to sue the bejesus out of people ala Nick Sandmann.

    On another note, despite the disinformation claiming otherwise, Rittenhouse did not transport the weapon across state lines. It belonged to his friend, a Wisconsin resident. (Which is why he wasn’t charged with such).
