The day that Malcolm wants to take you to the cleaners — I mean vote for himself — in the next Federal election, could be the "coldest" of the year. It's not a fluke.

This is a Budget of smokers and mirrors.
You could have been dazzled by this budget to end all budget since even Mr Morrison does not call it a budget but a way of life or such...
Impressive. So many rabbits, one does not know where to look. Even Leigh Sales was so impressed she asked ScotMo what was the point of the Liberals (CONservtives)' three years in government. I believe she thought the Libs could have released the rabbits earlier... Another economists tells us that this budget asks "for an act of faith"...
I suppose that the big earners that will be hit by the budget will find loopholes in the rabbit warrens as one would tunnel towards the Cayman Islands to deposit some cash.
The clincher for me is "real work for the dole"... I am in tears....
When Vice President Joseph Biden travelled to Iraq a few days ago, he did it, as always, under a shroud of secrecy. The mainstream press was asked in advance to keep the trip secret and dutifully complied. Biden declined to spend the night in Iraq, staying only 10 hours before whisking away to Italy, where presumably he slept safe and sound.

It seems Oz Post CEO Ahmed Fahour might have found the perfect way to finally kill off the business. Paying millions to his executive team while laying off 900 postal workers who actually did something useful like, you know, delivering the post, was a good start.
But shaking down punters to collect packages that have already been paid for by the sender is the coup de grace.I think it's almost certainly illegal. Oz Post has no contract with the recipient of the package, you see. The contract to deliver, for which payment has been made, was with the sender.
SYDNEY, Australia — Responding to the military challenge from China, the Australian government on Thursday announced a robust increase in military spending, including the biggest expansion to its navy since World War II.
