After months of pressure from his own side of politics, the Prime Minister has announced a royal commission into the banking sector.

Nationals senator Barry O'Sullivan, who was ready to introduce a bill forcing a banking inquiry, says he is happy the Government listened to its members, but another backbencher says Malcolm Turnbull had to be dragged "kicking and screaming" to the decision.

My cartoons are “lazy plonkt”.

I have been lucky. Very lucky. I count my weavings and duckings. I don’t believe in “blessings”... Understanding things has been my quest, though I still don’t understand much. One of my very good friend gave me a book. Lucky me.

These included conversions of money, weight, and content, method of barter, business partnerships, and allocation of profit, alloying of money, investment of money, and simple and compound interest.”

Thus, while at the local barber yesterday, I felt I deserved a small pat on the back. Mind you there are a lot of better cartoonists missing in the line up of the Press Club. This is where one remembers Groucho Marx about joining a club, especially: "The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made." We've all been there.
