What drugs are these people on. As for Sky, well it seems to be a haven for pedo supporters.
So a former Gillard adviser doesn't know what he's talking about when he says that the left is planning a "New Green Deal" as a backdoor for acquiring private property and mandating behaviours?

What are YOU smoking?

McTeran was an advisor for Blair And Gillard, credibility in spades. Who’s he working for now?
Add Sky news and Peta Cretin, a grain of salt.
And no, don’t smoke.

So you don't think he's got any credibility because he's being paid? He's right on the money, the Messiah Greta has herself been calling for the curtailment of personal and property rights due to the "climate emergency".

Not particularly, on the credibility aspect.
Greta and McTeran are in the same fringe dwelling basket, but on opposite ends of the spectrum.
Confident sensible middle ground is attainable.

So when he was working as an adviser to Gillarad you wouldn't have accepted a word he said.

Now he's out there bagging the left all of a sudden he's your number one hero Laughing

ScoMo has just stubbed his toe again. He boldly said that there were no ineligible bodies given grants in Bridget McKenzie's gratuitous hand outs.
Wrong! . . the Auditor General has found that 43 percent of the handouts were to ineligible groups.
The "sports rorts" thing is blowing over despite the best efforts of the ALP and the Greens... MacKenzie went, end-of-story.

Previous page sure, but it certainly doesn't seem like it's "blowing over" to me! Just look at the North Sydney grant that was supposed to be for regional Australia. There's more and more coming out still.

It's being overtaken by the COVID-19 narrative and the huge economic impact on our country - which isn't really being discussed at the moment but it's a paradigm shift for sure, almost certain to trigger the first technical recession since the early 1990's.

Speaking of things not being discussed, I've been really disappointed in the light of that horrible domestic violence incident in Brisbane that nobody has talked about the group of Aboriginal women led by lawyer Josephine Cashman who went to Canberra to protest the death toll from domestic violence in Aboriginal communities.

Nobody of any importance met with them apart from Aboriginal Affairs Minister Ken Wyatt - and Senator Pauline Hanson. From News.com.au:

“They really liked her because she’s not a snob,” Cashman told me. “She’s open to listening.” Unfortunately the only press about Hanson that day was over her excruciatingly contorted comments on poor Hannah Clarke and her family, which are impossible to comprehend let alone defend...

...While the nation was rightly united in grief for the Clarke family, the same deadly epidemic continues to sweep through our most vulnerable communities every day yet is strangely invisible.

According to Cashman, in the small and mostly Indigenous town of Wilcannia, which is home to only 550 people, 10 people have died in just the last eight weeks. Some by suicide, some by violence, all bound by poverty.

The death toll from suicide, violence and alcohol abuse in Aboriginal communities is huge but simply doesn't get reported on - I guess because its out-of-sight from most Australians. It's a terrible shame that one the same day she met with the Josephine Cashman delegation that Pauline's only reported comments was her apparent insensitivity about the Brisbane domestic violence incident -

This stuff is happening all the time to black people all over the country and it is getting ignored in favour of side issues like Aboriginal self-determination and the date of Australia day.

Bridget McKenzie is fighting back against attempts to scapegoat her for Sports Rorts.

This explains ScoMo getting on the phone to talk about toilet paper with supermarket execs earlier this week. It wasn't about trying to lower Tony Abbott's record for Prime Ministerial gravitas, but simply that he was sh***ing himself and didn't have a copy of The Australian nearby.

Speaking of the Australian - there was an article yesterday about the $350,000 that the Commonwealth gave TV star Scott Cam to be "trades ambassador" last year. In that time Scotty Cam hasn't done very much to earn his money -

The Block host is being paid $350,000 for the 18-month position, including $226,000 this financial year. He has received $145,000 for the first five months of the contract.

Skills Department officials told Senate estimates on Thursday that Cam had appeared in three short videos, made a combined four posts on Facebook and Instagram, and posted on an “engagement hub” on the National Career Institute’s website.

Officials initially told the hearing that further events were planned for Cam. When pressed by Labor senators for details, officials said the department was negotiating with Cam and his talent agency.

The Morrison government has defended TV tradie Scott Cam's job as taxpayer-funded careers ambassador despite the Gold Logie winner attending just one event since October.

Employment Minister Michaelia Cash subsequently told the hearing that Cam would take part in at least eight events as careers ambassador this year.

Senator Cash said Cam, a Gold Logie winner, would join her for a TAFE event in Western Australia next week and would host the National Training Awards in November.

“It is literally the Logies of training awards in Australia,” she said.

I'm astonished they've even bothered to try and justify it, surely there's better uses for $350,000 in this day and age?

They justify it because they know perfectly well that they'll get away with it anyway.

ScoMo looks very Presidential at the moment - he must have learned after the debacle of the fires - ABC News;

The Reserve Bank has cut interest rates, and an official number has been put on COVID-19's likely impact on the economy.

Scott Morrison has received praise for his handling of the situation, which is being contrasted with his cack-handedness during the bushfires.

(Notably, without the crisis, Morrison would have been on the back foot this week. It overshadowed embarrassing revelations at Senate estimates about the role of the Prime Minister's Office in the sports rorts affair, and the Chief of the Defence Force, Angus Campbell, saying he had expressed concern to Morrison over the use of defence material in the PM's notorious bushfire advertisement.)

Often secretive and downright slippery, on the coronavirus the Government has shared information, and provided regular updates.

He's been refusing to answer questions related to "sports rorts" and Bridget MacKenzie but then I suppose he has an excuse at a COVID-19 briefing.

Smeg Don, you’re letting him off easy.
If the leadership wasn’t a poisoned chalice, Dutton, Taylor and others, well there’d be a cue.
Scumo is the complete package, religious, evasive and untruthful. Ticks all the boxes.

Bridget Mc, has been pushed into ropes, come out swinging, you good thing.

More power to her arm. Bridget is not completely blameless, but she seems to have decided the she's not going to be the only one carrying the can. I've been wondering when when one of ScoMo's own mob would tip a bucket over him, and I hope this bucket keeps being re-filled and tipped until he's drowning.

Who the frig does Kevin Rudd think he's talking to?



He's an also-ran Aussie Prime Minister who was sacked ten years and and left parliament over seven years ago. As if Trump (or anyone else) is going to be listening to his overly intellectual and vapid advice.

He’s talking to you Don.
You’ve obviously read/listened to it and provided a link.Laughing

He’s still pissed he didn’t get the UN gig, and needs to feel relevant.

It's just been announced that Peter Dutton has COVID-19. I guess that means ScoMo will need to go into isolation for two days and will miss the rugby match he was hoping to get to on Sunday!

And now ScoMo cancels the footy match he was going attend... like the Grand Prix ticket holders I'd be feeling a mite p*ssed off right now being told at the very last minute that it's cancelled - sorry 'bout that.

I am hearing now that Scott Morrison won't have to go into isolation, nor will any of his cabinet.

Isn't it funny how ScoMo believes everything that is told to him by medical scientists, but not climate scientists?

Actually, it's not.
  djf01 Chief Commissioner

IMHO it's not an unfair comment to call out ScoMo now as a gutless wonder.  The way he became PM, the way he handled the bushfires, and they way he's f-ing about with Coronavirus.  Criticse Rudd all you like for his hubris and many personal failings (there are plenty of them), I'd sooner him (but not before  Howard, Whitlam, Hawke, Keating, Costello or Fraser or even McMahan) as PM now.

At the very time we need a someone to show leadership and make the ballsy costly decisions that we all know need to be made, we've got this pathetic waste of space deciding *he* needs to go to the photo op at the footy instead.
