S H-Y

South Australian Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young has been stripped of the immigration portfolio, in a major internal reshuffle.

Hearing the shrill from the new mad senators is mind numbing... And some of them will get to stay six long years... Let's hope that the new ignorant lot starts to study reality beyond their long-learned prejudices... Let's hope that the ultra right-wing mongrels start to see that their sponsors, the rich, are rorting society under the premise of dripping-down on the plebs and that the lefties abandon harsh refugee policies. Let's hope that all see that the planet is at a slow turning point of sort, with CO2 climbing sky high to dangerous levels due to our burning of fossil fuels. Global warming is real.
