Rightwing politicians and media commentators had a field day.
Derryn Hinch has long played the "nice guy" image. He's not nice. He is an opportunistic bastard who is prepared to sell the soul of this country for his pension as a senator. He should be thrown out as soon as possible. The only thing he understood about truth, freedom and justice is ... ratings (TV and radio).
This planet was degraded by the Intergalactic Council from a natural beauty to a humanoid dump long ago. The problem started a few thousands of years ago when some idiots believed that they had committed a silly crime. The legends goes that there were only two stupid people, the name of whom were Eve and Adam who should have known better.

No super computer in their right mind would be able to calculate or predict at any point in time, where the bubbles and convection currents are and will be, though we can see them. The normal setting for the climate and weather combo is simmer. No boil, barely a ripple at the surface. We know the energy lost around the saucepan -- or in the case of the planet, what energy is lost into the blue yonder.
Bill Leak may have been the poster boy for "free speech" anti-Section 18C nutters, but his death has not heralded the end of racism and bigotry, writes John Passant.
