    You still a ward of the state or back in work?
    If you have an MC license and a couple of machinery tickets the only questions you will get in WA is “when can you start”…

  2. The ABC never changes.

    A story today with a breathless heading about a private school teacher arrested with vile stuff involving minors on his computer. They would never flag a government school teacher in that fashion: they probably wouldn’t report the charges at all.

    And here is the background at the end of their latest piece of outrage on the Porter blind trust brouhaha”

    he former attorney-general sued the ABC and journalist Louise Milligan in March over a story about an historical rape allegation that had been made against an unnamed minister.

    Mr Porter revealed himself as the subject of the allegations but strenuously denied any wrongdoing.

    Months later, he decided to discontinue the defamation action against the ABC and Ms Milligan.

    No damages were paid following the settlement of the case, although the ABC paid $100,000 in mediation costs.

    Notice that they don’t mention that, as part of the settlement, they conceded that (1) they did not men to imply that Porter committed the offenes (pull the other one!); (2) they could not prove the assertions to whether the criminal or the (lesser) civil standard of proof. They make it sound as if Porter just conceded.

  4. Yes, the Police respectfully letting the Unionists get on with blocking roads, cars & trams, (while harassing Jews going about their lawful business – even under the covid rules – with mounted patrols), sends yet another message that doesn’t equate with justice –

    “Victorian construction workers protest against government restrictions and mandates

    Highlights from Victorian construction workers protesting on Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. The protest was a part of a series of demonstrations by construction workers in response to new workplace restrictions.

    These street lunchroom protests are a being claimed as a coordinated action by unions in response to restrictions on lunchrooms, so therefore the workers are only protesting during their defined break periods by having lunch/smoko on the street.

    Union leaders have said these are not protests, and are just workers having their lunch on the streets because of the inability to work within the CHO directions. The actions have caused disruptions to the road and transport network within the city and outer suburbs.

    Speaking to people from these worksites off camera, they have a mix of views and concerns, mandatory vaccination is one of them (however the unions don’t publicly support them on this matter).

    Victorian workers have only a few days left until they will no longer be allowed on worksites without providing proof they have had at least 1 dose of the vaccine.

    Some workers claim they are also protesting against the unions for not backing their workforce against government overreach into their ability to make free informed decisions about their decision to vaccinate.

  5. LOL. Socialist Macron says he was stabbed in the back by socialist Biden!

    France demand answers from PM Scott Morrison after joining US, UK in new nuclear submarine deal

    Mr Le Drian also accused US President Joe Biden of stabbing France in the back and acting like his predecessor, Donald Trump, whose time as president was characterised by tense relationships with European allies.

    “It’s a stab in the back. We had established a trusting relationship with Australia, and this trust was betrayed,” he said.

    “This brutal, unilateral and unpredictable decision reminds me a lot of what Mr Trump used to do.

    “I am angry and bitter. This isn’t done between allies.”

    Cheese-eating surrender monkeys are unhappy!

  6. I assume people are aware that many childhood vaccines are abortion tainted and the church’s position on the use of said vaccines has been in place since at least 2005, when Pope Benedict XVI was Pope.
    And of course Pope Francis, Pope Benedict and Cardinal Pell among many others are vaccinated against covid.

    BTW, is there anyone in Victoria who doesn’t think Cornelius is the reincarnation of Herman Goering?
    Or is that unfair to Goering, who actually earned his array of medal ribbons in combat before becoming a Nazi?

  11. Sancho Panzer:

    Almost as importantly, this is a sign of a minister willing to grab his portfolio by the scruff of the neck and tell the bureacrats he is makes the decisions and they implement them.

    It shows you a Minister who took on the job to get stuff done, not someone who wanted to be a prizewinner.

  13. Today in Melbourne, did VicPol:
    1) Tell the brothers to put their masks up between sips?
    2) Snatch a mobile phone off anyone (that footage still enrages me)?
    3) Stomp on a brothers head while other VicPol was holding him down?
    4) Make any arrests?

    The answer of course is no.
    VicPol are the biggest blouses in the country.

  14. I understand that, Rosie. The Beloved, a fine Christian man, is vaccinated with AZ. Not offered a choice, and suffering from a variety of co-morbidities, he made a decision to go ahead.

    His conscience was not exercised in the acceptance of the vaccine. Mine, however, has been. I don’t know why this is so, but there it is. Perhaps it has something to do with my resistance to submission in previous tests of faith. Everyone’s walk is different.

    And it gave him an opportunity to talk about faith and the vaccine with someone today, quite unexpected, but he was ready. Mysterious ways they say. 🙂

  16. I assume people are aware that many childhood vaccines are abortion tainted and the church’s position on the use of said vaccines has been in place since at least 2005, when Pope Benedict XVI was Pope.

    Then your assumption would be wrong. We cannot reverse the past but now that we have knowledge that these vaccines are abortion-tainted, we can choose to follow our conscience.

    And of course Pope Francis, Pope Benedict and Cardinal Pell among many others are vaccinated against covid.

    And? So what?
    We all will one day stand before God and be judged.

    Most surprising was finding acres of seashells scattered atop the towering (and beautiful) Bunda Cliffs on the Nullabor. These cliffs are up to 120 mtrs above sea level.

    Remnants of the inland sea that existed in central Australia?
    Back in the early 1970s at Quilpie during the floods, I remember seeing small dusky brown crabs swimming around in the water.

    There used to be a site called Sahul Time from Monash uni which was an interactive map based around Australia where you could see sea level from the past; so 23000 yrs ago sea level was 135 meters BELOW what it is today. 6 million years ago it was 110 meters ABOVE what it is today. The site had some problems and is being redeveloped; this is a typical image:

    Planetary surfaces can be very dangerous places.

    Why doesn’t VicPol have the water cannons out clearing the unions off the streets today?

    Were the unions involved in the protest or was the street smoko break a spontaneous event? I thought that the Big Unions were onboard with Big Business and Big Government in this fascist takeover.

  20.

They make it sound as if Porter just conceded.

    He should look into threatening them with another lawsuit – by omission they are suggesting exactly that which they had to retract already.

    If he doesn’t then the next person they target will have to do so, as well as repeat the preceding legal rigmarole.

    Porter was targeted because of his party and profile. The ABC backed down because of his profile and his being part of the government. The next person they target will not have those protections – it will be one person against a $1.1 billion slavering mongrel.
