Here we are... Gus is about to blow his chance to work for the public service, though he has long passed retirement age... If my informants in the APS are correct, the deck chairs are being moved from here to there...
One could cope with a gas-guzzling family sedan, but a road machine that goes four times the speed, despite our road speed limits, for barely 20 per cent more, is attractive... even if we have kids...
Not only we know that our fast car is backed by a vastly superior warranty, the restored sedan could be a lemon within three months... Yes, the old Telstra network is not what it used to be, especially when it rains...
But there are some fanatics of the "PC" who support the horrible concoction designed by the coalition boofheads...
The "double-cross system" has been used in war and peace, in order to deceive.
Former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher made "unabashedly racist" comments during a meeting with Bob Carr, the Foreign Affairs Minister has told Lateline.
The "coalition" newly released broadband plan is an abomination... First the "coalition" boofheads expect Telstra to give them the copper network for nothing...
I am not really fond of he Archibald Art Prize... For those who don't know, the Archibald Prize is given to the best portraiture in Australia — apart from its rival the Moran Prize... The Archibald is prestigious and is usually won by the same artists in a small group of brushies who seem to know their stuff...
In an interview with Inside Business, NBN Co chief Mike Quigley conceded the capital costs of the Coalition's FttN plan could be more than 20 per cent cheaper.
There is one major ugly factor that has influenced politics around the western world since the early 1970s like no other... His empire has employed armies of scribes, armed with poisoned pens and lies bigger than Ben Hur, to make nightmares come true.
Hitherto unseen evidence given to the Chilcot Inquiry by British intelligence has revealed that former prime minister Tony Blair was told that Iraq had, at most, only a trivial amount of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and that Libya was in this respect a far greater threat.
I could be wrong but I finally have come to a conclusion that astonishes me, myself and my reflection in the mirror: Like Abbott, Mike Carlton is a closet misogynist...
A petulant child who has a tantrum is often after some love and affection... but it will reject it straight away as it does not want to appear soft and conciliatory... We all make mistakes of evaluation of behaviour... yet we cannot smack the brat before it does a bad deed, whatever his silly reasoning/excuses are...
In August when Tony Abbott launches the Coalition's campaign for the September 14 federal election, he could start as follows: "And the first pledge I now make, a commitment which embraces every other undertaking, is that everything we do as a government will have the one great goal - to reunite this great community of ours, to bring out the best we are truly capable of, together as a nation, and bring Australia together to win our way through the crisis into which the policies of the past and the men of the past have plunged our country."
The chaotic daily churn has left news organisations with gaping holes that political pundits are all too happy to fill. But don't assume they're motivated by a desire to inform, writes Jonathan Green.
