    Everything about the old thief’s regime is malicious incompetence and in-your-face humiliation of good Americans. A filthy transsexual dressing up as a naval officer, one million dollar payouts for illegal immigrants and a dirty old crook pretending to be potus.

    I note how none of the sisterhood, the usual noisy suspects like Jane Caro, the ABC sisterhood, Cane Toad Wilkinson and so on have uttered a word to defend the former Liberal premier Gladys.

    Well noticed Cassie. Thus you can conclude that those excitable ladies are utter hypocrites.

    I can’t see anything from golden girls Grace Tame or Brittany Higgins in support of Gladys either.

    What if members of “the resistance” start identifying themselves to each other by wearing an item of clothing with “Let’s Go Brandon!” on it? A t-Shirt, a baseball cap or just a pin.

    British sub’s visit an Astute showcase of AUKUS alliance
    The Royal Navy nuclear-powered sub at HMAS Stirling.

    A British nuclear-powered submarine has arrived in Perth as the UK moves to showcase the Astute’s capabilities to the Royal Australian Navy.

    The Astute-class submarine has been sailing in a task group with British aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth on its maiden voyage through the Indo-Pacific.

    The British visit comes less than 24 hours after Scott Morrison spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron for the first time since Australia scrapped the $90bn ­Attack-class submarines, in an ­effort to patch up relations ­between the countries before this weekend’s G20 meeting in Rome.

    Defence Minister Peter Dutton said the British submarine’s visit was a testament to the US, UK and Australia’s commitment to greater co-operation on security and defence capabilities.

    “The AUKUS partners have committed to bolstering our collective efforts in meeting the challenges posed by our strategic circumstances in the Indo-Pacific,” he said. “The Royal Navy’s visit to Perth reflects this commitment but is also a clear demonstration of the strong bilateral ties between our two navies that go back more than a century.

    “We look forward to continued work together over the coming decades as we work together in the pursuit of a secure, stable and prosperous region.”

    France took the first Test 22–8 at Lancaster Park, coinciding with Frenchman Philippe Sella’s hundredth match for his country The second and final Test on tour was at Eden Park on 3 July 1994. The All Blacks were winning 20–16 with three minutes remaining after Matthew Cooper had kicked a penalty. The French counter-attacked and ran the ball the length of the field from their own in-goal area to win. The ball was handled by nine French players before the try was scored by Jean-Luc Sadourny. French captain Philippe Saint-Andre called it “a counter-attack from the end of the world” (l’essai du bout du monde) France won 23–20 and won 2–0 over the All Blacks. 🙂
