    Never forget that Birmingham was visiting James Cook Uni to praise its leadership at the same time Peter Ridd was being persecuted out of a job. Never forget that the current minister could have told James Cook that, were they to continue the ongoing legal tussle with Ridd, their federal grants would be cut by a similar amount.

    Birmingham is a retard of the highest order.
    It would be better for the Libs to be in opposition than to have this fool in a decision making capacity.

    I think so Cassie, Zac holds Dawesville by a minute margin. And most polls in WA showing a primary vote for ALP of between 60-63%!!! **rolls eyes**

    It’s amazing what a “pandemic” will do… oh, all the sickening lovey support of 7 News, The Worst Australian Newspaper, PerthNow and Sunday Times (all owned by Kerry Stokes who has earned himself a 9-figure payday from a State Govt in a mining deal…).

  17. Des Deskperson says:

    ‘Des, you are making the assumption that she will actually go to the incarceration centre as part of her investigation.’

    Although it is a ‘virtual’ committee focused on personnel and training, l would have thought that some first hand idea of the physical arrangements at the ‘centre’ on the part of the Chair would be helpful. Of course, the cluelessness and fecklessness of the ACT government and its public sector when it comes to serious stuff is hard to exaggerate, so we can’t be sure of anything.

    The whole place is run on a sort of voodoo. Having a wimminist icon chairing a committee like this means that everything will turn out looking good and we won’t have to worry about hard, messy stuff like details and processes.

    Does anyone care? It seems even the Lieborals are using him as a sacrificial annode.

    Given that the press gallery was lining her up to be gang-assaulted today, her doctor must have advised her to avoid it.

    Interesting that a couple of drunks rooting on her couch in what may, or may not, have been a consensual act, is apparently a bigger crime than persecuting combat soldiers, destroying the SAS and lying about the cost of deisel submarines.

    Canberra has really lost touch with reality.

    Ha!

    How many times have we egged people on saying “Drive it like you rented it!”

    I just had a sudden realisation though – those ads where they tell us that ‘In the future you will own nothing, and you will be happy.’

    Just compare how people treat their own property to public property.

    Note also that the people pushing this make sure they never have to rely on public things like public transport, housing, hospitals or health, lawyers, etc.

    I was interested in Ms Higgins current boyfriend, it appears he’s had a patchy work history, a former reporter on SBS, then a reporter on Sky News, then on WIN then went to work in government in the office of Prime Minister and Cabinet until, it is reported, he joined his new employer Stream in January where he worked until yesterday. This fellow sounds like an all ’round attention-seeker.

    I also found this article from 2018 on R U OK Day which indicates he has mental health problems, the article says he was married in March 2018 to a young lady by the name of Alexandra but it would appear that marriage may be over given that he has taken up with Ms Higgins.

    I don’t know when Ms Higgins took up with this character but she may not be getting the appropriate help/advice from people who have her best interests at heart.

    @ANZ_Research

    Australia’s #wage growth jumped 0.6% q/q in Q4, with annual growth consolidating at 1.4% y/y. The strong result was boosted by the reversal of pandemic-era wage cuts, as well as the deferred minimum wage increase kicking in for workers in most industries. #ausecon

    I usually end up watching a show about British country real estate on the secondary Seven Network channel

    So do I, Tom, when Hairy wants to watch Foxtel sports and I see that at least the British countryside is on fta. He so kindly set it up ready for me in my study to get rid of me the other nite, and as I walk in he’s there smirking on his way out to his footie. Have fun with these two, he says, and I must admit I started to back out, for two of the most boring people in the world were staring me in the face as they sought their pre-nursing home pitched stairs and low ceilings. But I held my nerve and sat down with the remote in my hand. In the event, though they were indeed deathly dull and the poor presenter had a very hard job of it, but to each their own I said to myself in the spirit of common humanity and the countryside itself saved the day. Glorious England. How I long for those meadows of cowslips, lupins and bluebells and the grand old oaks while a ruined castle slowly disintegrates in an interesting way in the distance and I imagine some Roman soldiers down there by the stream where the sign says they had made their fort.

    So Swamp Bitch Mitch is voting for Garland.

  55. Now working from home for 2 weeks after the crew evacuation from one of the cargo ships.
    Rather miffed in that the blokes long term recovery may have been compromised because they couldn’t organise a 10 minute helicopter recovery as the vessel passed another port with a hospital which could have given him treatment which would have been extremely effective.
    Instead it will be about 24 hrs before he’s getting definitive treatment.

    Only fairly young as well.
    In one respect he’s lucky. What he took after it could have killed him with a slightly different condition ( only tell in hospital)
    Still I can scratch “ scramble up the rope ladder onto a cargo ship” off my bucket list.

    We watched that show on Sky last night about anti-vaxxers. It was full of sleigh of hand, lumping together people concerned about any new type of Covid vax with people who pushed the complete anti-vax line that can produce a nightmare of dying babies. There was no middle ground allowed. No mention of new treatments for Covid either.

    ‘Front page of the West OZ is a Harvey Norman add. Smalls news banner at the top.

    Same with the Canberra Times. There seems to be a reluctance now for print media to reveal circulation figures, but I would be surprised if it was selling more that 10,000 copies on a weekday. Harvey Norman ads are probably all that keeps it going.

    According to Ray Martin – the campaign figurehead – the CT and other vibrant and independent regional outlets are threatened by proposed government media changes. The CT would be no loss. It has a few competent, mostly female, writers but its opinionistas are septuagenerian, bourgeois left males. No longer part of Nine Fairfax, it sill prints a lot of ‘progressive’ SMH/Age op/ed, included, judged by her own CV, one of Australia’s least talented journalists, Jenna Price.

    The CT cartoonist, Davis Pope, makes David Rowe look positively even handed, as well as a much more talented comic draughtsman, by comparison. Rowe will at least unflatteringly caricature Labor people from time to time, once depicting Plibbers as someone’s half crazed aunt. Pope draws her like a Scandinavian super model.

    How can a doctor not be trained to jab punters?

    Doctor who gave vaccine overdose did not have proper training: Hunt
    The doctor who was stood down after he gave a coronavirus vaccine overdose to two Brisbane nursing home patients did not have the proper training, Health Minister Greg Hunt says.

    Mr Hunt says the government will now take action against the doctor and the company he was working for, Healthcare Australia, which is helping administer the vaccine at the nursing home.

    This comes after the Health Minister told Parliament the doctor’s training was up to scratch.

    But an hour later he has had to revise that advice.

    “One, I apologise to the house; two, I have again reaffirmed my apologies to the family,” Mr Hunt says.

    “Three, I have asked the [Health Department] to take action against the company and the doctor for what is a clear breach on both fronts.“

  68. jupes says:

    I have just returned from a 5 day visit to Sydney so can offer a snapshot of WA and NSW Covid restrictions and reactions to them.

    Perth policy – 5 day lockdown followed by compulsory mask wearing for 9 days. However since the 9 days finished, masks are not required anywhere other than the airport. Mandatory sign-in laws to enter businesses. Government permission required (via an app) to enter the state.
    Masks – Just about everyone wore them when told. Probably >98% of the population did so. I was chipped twice by (male) Karens for not wearing mine.
    Sign in (still in effect) – Some people may sign in to businesses, but the vast majority of establishments don’t enforce it. I have never signed in anywhere in WA.
    Airport (federal government imposed mandatory mask wearing) – Most people wore masks however, I was able to get through check-in, security and the Qantas club before I was told to put on a mask at the boarding gate. Hosties didn’t enforce mask wearing once on board. On the return journey however, I was met by a posse of police officers and (I assume) nurses checking that masks were worn correctly and that we had filled out the WA government entry app. I hadn’t because the stupid app didn’t work on my phone, so I was delayed an hour sorting that shit out.

    Sydney policy – Despite nil cases, masks were compulsory on public transport. Mandatory sign-in laws to enter businesses. Nil permission required to enter state.
    Masks – Many people didn’t wear the mask on the trains. From about 5-10% in the morning to about 80% around midnight. I never saw a cop on platform so it looks like they applied the correct priority to the stupid mask law. Nil Karens. Even less people wore masks on ferries. I took three taxis sans mask and on two of those trips the taxi driver didn’t wear one either.
    Sign-in laws – strictly enforced in most establishments. The utterly stupid ban on standing while drinking was also strictly enforced during the Cat catch-up.
    Airport – Strictly enforced mask wearing from entry. There was a bloke handing out masks to recalcitrants like myself. Similarly, the Qantas club wouldn’t serve anyone unless they had a mask on. Even the hosties on the flight were enforcing the stupid rule.

    Conclusion – WA massively over-reacts but eases up to (almost) normal when there are no more cases. The Sheeple seem to love this and do whatever they are told.
    NSW over-reacts to a lesser degree, however keeps unnecessary rules when there are no more cases. The Sheeple don’t seem to mind this either, though there are far more rebels per head of population than in WA.

    According to Bari Weiss, she gets calls from a number of people but no one is willing to risk talking about it out loud. But here’s a woman, Jodi Shaw, with the courage to do so.

    Whistleblower at Smith College Resigns Over Racism

    Jodi Shaw was, until this afternoon, a staffer at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. She made $45,000 a year — less than the yearly tuition at the school.

    She is a divorced mother of two children. She is a lifelong liberal and an alumna of the college. And she has had a front-row seat to the illiberal, neo-racist ideology masquerading as progress.

    Now today, she is resigning from the college.

    In doing that — and in speaking out — she is turning down a settlement that would have given her a much easier way out. We need more people like her.

  76. feelthebern says:

    Linda Reynolds should resign.

    Same with the police minister in Victoria.

  77. Cassie of Sydney says:

    And therein lies the rub…until Ms Shaw, Ms Weiss and other “progressives” stop being “lifelong liberals”…it will only get worse. These progressives helped light the fire and now they’re being consumed by it. It’s time they owned up to their culpability in helping to facilitate this madness. Oh and I bet both Ms Shaw and Ms Weiss voted for Biden.

    Lizzie, the thing that knocks me out about UK country real estate is the price — e.g., 4BR on 5 acres in Devon with ocean views for under $A1 million (GBP500k) — a half or a quarter of what you’d pay on the Mornington Peninsula, for example.

    Same with US real estate: 15 years ago, my stepdaughter and her hubby bought a 2-storey 4BR house on a big block in East Nashville — 5kms from downtown — for USD110k. Sold it about five years later for double that — a fraction of what you’d pay in Australia.

    A conservative saying the same thing will be dismissed as a white racist. When one of their own does it, it will create a dent. Dave Rubin, in a Mark Levin interview, described himself as someone who used to be a Bernie Sanders supporter.

    What Jodi Shaw has done requires a great deal of courage. She could have taken the easy way out, but she resigned with a detailed letter (included in the link in previous comment).

    This is her GoFundMe page set up for her legal battle and to help others take action and free themselves from “a hostile work environment”. These are potential Dems crossing over to Conservatives.

  87. Makka says:

    Reynolds handling of the matter has been abysmal, Cash’s even worse, so much for female empathy and caring in politics.

    How about the abysmally stupid and very lame handling of this matter by Ms Higgins herself? She claims to have been raped. No ifs or buts so why did she just not report it herself to the police directly immediately at the time when evidence may still have been available and then go hard after the perp? Where were her family in all of this and what was their advice at the time? What did her parents advise? With something as serious as this being allegedly done to you, why TF would you listen to a politician’s advice, of all people? Was it because she was counting on some leverage from it all down the line?

    Clarence Thomas with the verbal smackdown

    One wonders what this Court waits for. We failed to settle this dispute before the election, and thus provide clear rules. Now we again fail to provide clear rules for future elections. The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence. Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us. I respectfully dissent.

  93. Ed Case says:

    ***How about the abysmally stupid and very lame handling of this matter by Ms Higgins herself? She claims to have been raped.***
    Not the issue.
    The issue is the complete lack of support from Reynolds herself, she handballed Brittany to Cash, and soon after, Brittany’s time in Canberra was at an end, the bloke involved landed on his feet as a lobbyist, Reynolds refuses to say if he was sacked, got a payout, got a reference, slap on the wrist, anything, nobody even knows his name, and probably never will.

  94. Makka says:

    Not the issue.

    It’s the only issue that matters. Has a criminal act in fact occurred? All else is waffle and noise, smoke and mirrors.

  95. Struth says:

    I’m not following the raaaaapey story.
    Needless to say, those who knew of the crime from the victim to anyone else who did not immediately go to the police, are a disgrace and criminal.

    Reynolds has already changed her story and apologised to the Senate, now she’s having a little rest, incommunicado.
    There’s been a wide ranging coverup, if Brittany’s story is so weak, why so many Cabinet Ministers and their high powered staff involved?
    Yesterday, Craig Kelly resigned for no apparent reason, though it’s got Brittany off the Oz’s front page today.

  100. Ed Case says:

    Let’s say the cops decline to prosecute, a likely outcome, since only 4 of 75 Rope complaints proceeded to Court in the ACT last year.
    Does that mean Brittany made it all up and the coverup was all for nothing, so Reynolds, Scotty, and some others are off the hook?

    No. What I presume you mean is that the wider population don’t know his name. There would be thousands in Canberra and elsewhere who know precisely who he is. The media would know but they cannot name him at this time. The man reportedly checked himself into a Canberra hospital. Minor league sleuthing by any doctor/nurse/orderly would identify the person.

    Not to mention the police from the initial report and now, apparently, a refreshed report. What about the man’s previous employer from whom he recently resigned due to his position becoming untenable?

    Thousands of people and growing. Furthermore, there is no chance that all of these people have zip-locked their mouths and not repeated the fellow’s name to ‘a mate’.

    That’s for sure, but … Linda Reynolds bought her story, Morrison’s CoS bought the story, Brittany did go to the cops, so plenty of very hard nosed people bought the story at face value and managed to keep it very quiet for 2 years, no small feat.

She went off medication to become pregnant , against advice , was not really coping after the first and been put into psychiatric hospital where you are not allowed to leave , a while back .

    There’s CCTV of the Security guards finding her in the office asleep on the floor and naked from the waist down.
    At some stage Reynolds became aware of this [The Security Breach] and called Higgins and Mystery Man into her office [separately].
    The Australian today try to spin the Security Breach as the reason for the meeting, but how credible is this?
    Isn’t it more likely that Reynolds intended to sack Brittany and end the matter there, Brittany Karened Up, so the Cabinet went to Plan B, the cover up?

    Take the case of Brittany Higggins.

    a/ She was 24 and according to her this was her “dream job”.
    Which means you want to make sure that you are on your best behaviour in all situations that may, in anyway, be connected to work.

    b/ She organised the event and invited some people to the party. Including this male staffer whom she didn’t know that well. So, she was the “hostess” and the attendees were her guests.
    Which means she should have stayed sober enough (one or two social drinks) to ensure that her guests were all enjoying themselves and there were no problems.

    c/ Instead, she gets herself so drunk, she is falling all over the place. By her own admission. How much alcohol it is a good idea to consume with your colleagues around you, at a function you have organised? Having realised how drunk she was, she decided to go home and planned to take an uber. So why didn’t she?
    Which means there had been no prior planning of how she would get home. Why trust someone you don’t know that well, but still invited to the party?

    d/ She didn’t report to the r-pe to the police because she was worried that she would lose her job. Someone else is responsible for a 24-year old getting drunk at a social function, and then proceeding to a high security work environment (which happened to be the site of her dream job) with someone she didn’t know and trust well enough.
    She didn’t take the necessary action, even though she was being supported by her employer, because she didn’t want to lose her job. Return to point a/.

    Owners of Camp Boomerang RV Park and Campground, a new, private gay campground in Orleans, Michigan, made it clear that the campground is for men only, effectively banning transgender men — biological females who consider themselves males.

    “Camp Boomerang is a private, membership-only rv park/campground that allows only ‘guys,’” Camp Boomerang cofounder Bryan Quinn wrote, defining “guy” as “a person with a penis” who “presents himself as male and has a state-issued ID that says ‘male.’”

    Bronte Vanderfield told police how she was roped by a friend at home

    Ex-Redlands School student Bronte Vanderfield is one of 1400 girls — many from private schools — who have signed a petition saying they were roped or sexually assaulted.
    @DanielleGuss
    4 min read
    February 24, 2021 – 9:38PM

    Two years of intense counselling and living with the shame of being roped by a friend culminated last week with Bronte Vanderfield walking into Dee Why police station to report the harrowing events of January 1, 2019.

    Bronte, 16 at the time, had been predictably anxious when she invited 30 friends to her idyllic northern Sydney home for a New Year’s party while the parents were on holiday interstate.

    By her own admission she was as “drunk as a skunk” having sank copious amounts of spirits to calm the nerves and, by the time the house filled with fellow Redlands private school students, including the friend, she was relaxed in her own environment socialising by the pool.

    Some time around 11.30pm the friend led her by the hand up the stairs, to her bedroom, and flung her onto the bed muttering, “Let’s do this.”

    “I don’t want to, I don’t feel well,” Bronte recalls protesting, tears falling from her eyes.

    “I was vomiting on myself, I was that drunk. I was afraid, paralysed, I had a lot of trust in him, he was my friend, I was too shocked to do anything,” she said.

    “He didn’t listen … he told me ‘you’re so fat, I like it.’”

    Last Monday, the childcare worker told police the boy’s name but did not press charges.

    The police officer explained the daunting process of going to court would take several years. “I told her everything, how I didn’t consent and was so drunk I didn’t remember much, except that when he finished inside me he just walked down the stairs and left the house.”

    Bronte, now 19, is part of an explosion of rope and sex assaults claims among NSW teenagers — statistics show an annual 10 per cent rise in juvenile offenders of sexual assault since 2010 with 374 incidents reported last year.

    Min, the sad case you recount has similarities to the mother of my first grandchild, a boy who is now a strapping seventeen year old lad. Tell your friend to hang in there with both understanding and support. I have had a lot to do with my grandson’s upbringing and he is doing well. It’s sad when these mothers decide to go ahead and have another baby while they are not coping with the first. Thankfully my grandson’s mother agreed to long-term contraceptive injections or there would doubtless have been another child involved in this mess. Support all round is what is required. This woman was once coming down from Queensland to kill me with a male friend with a knife; both had escaped from a locked ward in Qld after having run me a merry dance through the appalling family court of WA. I stuck by her re her illness and forgave a lot. She now rings me frequently for emotional support, which I offer; she visits at our home too. Her son is thriving living with friends now, having lived with my son his dad (who has problems too) and we all jostle along as a family now. A good outcome can still be achieved for your friend’s daughter.

    Tom, I too am amazed at how cheap a ten acre country property can be in the UK, with distances from major centres being what we in Oz would consider a local doddle. I get tempted indeed. Let’s buy something in the UK, I say, muzzling into Hairy. I am not returning to live in that class ridden hellhole, he answers. One of his upper-crust mates at Cambridge asked in an email recently if he was still ‘a communist’. Hairy was mightily offended. I had a heart in my youth but have brains in my older age, he responds. I believe the Peoples’ Rowing Club at Cambridge which he founded has now been defunct for many years; since he left actually. His brother was a Blue and oars decorate the family homes. lol, I say. You are still a social socialist re the Hooray Henrys, I say. You know they would welcome you as a rebel back into the fold. But our lives are mapped out now here in Australia with our grandchildren. 🙂

    Pretty sad viewing, really. Such a doofus way to die. Wasn’t rated to fly instruments-only but thought, ‘I’m a Kennedy – what could go wrong?’

    Interesting insights on Jackie too. After Bobby was shot, she was apparently close-to-certifiable and was immensely impressed by Onassis’s 70-man security detail.

  221. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    A bit of both?

    Yes. Pfizer is most effective at both apparently. I get that in March, so the timeline (lol) says. As a young chappie, Hairy gets the Astra Zenica, which he likes more anyway, at 66% effectiveness and about which Miranda Divine is now complaining re the Aust Govt’s choices.

    We have pretty much decided to book to go up the Amazon on a small cruise liner in March 2022 and take the rap if it gets cancelled because we can’t get out of Oz.

    Currently, they are in the epicentre of the Brazilian strain in Mancoun, the major centre there. Oh great, I say, when I hear this, looking at pictures of a third world mass grave full of crosses. We may have to top up our inoculations by then anyway.

    A year is a long time, Hairy says comfortingly.
    It’s you I’m worried about, not me, I say.

    We had been hopeful of going in a ‘bubble’ to the Cook Islands soon for an already-paid week away, cancelled last year, but given the way lockdowns are still being called that seems unlikely for a while, at least till vaccination takes hold.

    Doubts over Linda Reynolds’ return as Defence Minister

    @bennpackham
    An hour ago February 24, 2021

    Government MPs and industry figures are questioning the future of Linda Reynolds as Defence Minister after she was admitted to hospital following increased pressure over her handling of the ­alleged rope of former staffer Brittany Higgins in her office.

    Scott Morrison is standing by his embattled minister, who went to hospital on Wednesday as a “precautionary measure” after the stress of the past week exacerbated an existing medical condition relating to her heart. She remained in hospital overnight.

    While government sources stressed the Prime Minister was not considering a reshuffle and expected Senator Reynolds would be back at work soon, some Coalition MPs said her position was becoming increasingly ­untenable given the importance and sensitivity of the defence portfolio.

    There were no suggestions she should be pushed out but — frustrated and surprised by how she had dealt with the rope allegations in 2019 and the fallout over the past 10 days — they questioned how Senator Reynolds could return to the role as normal.

    Dozens of defence industry executives had flown to Canberra for a National Press Club address Senator Reynolds was due to give on Wednesday, but which was cancelled just after 9am following her admission to hospital.

  228. Leigh Lowe says:

    I doubt it Lizzie as my friend is not allowed access to her great g’daughter as there are issues from g’daughter s life with mother and step father . Friend brought up her G’ daughter and she had psychological problems as a teenager probably BPD from the description o f her behaviour . I actually picked up that she was in a manic stage
    before she was hospitalised the first time and the official diagnosis was not made for weeks . Personally I do not think her medication is right at the moment and she is not capable of concentrating on the therapeutic process . It is all very sad and believe it or not , similar problems with another friend , both professional women who have had bad marriages . Genetics not the nurture maybe an answer.

    This blocking out of a lineal families who may be able to help has to stop.

    And yes, genetic elements may be involved; they are definitely involved with my sons from my first marriage, according to a prison psychologist who came to see at home my re my second son’s parole, for we had invited him back home. Do you have other children? she asked. Three I said. Do any of them have similar problems? she ventured. His brother, I replied. With the same father? she asked, knowing I had remarried. Yes, I said. No problems with the other two, fathered by Hairy.

    I see it so much, she said. Genetics, and then implosions due to parental separation.

    He left me, I wanted to wail, so it’s not my fault. But I stayed stum.
    He wasn’t stable the way Hairy is stable, but you don’t see that in your youth.
