  2. Behaviour I see as disgusting, I call out, comrade-ette. You see, 20 , 30 years ago, what I am calling out as pure irresposible selfishness and evil, most others would.
    Men certainly would have.
    You’re behaviour to me is disgusting.
    Let me put this in perspective for you all.
    30 years ago nearly everyone would be appalled at the idea that an Australian would submit to tyranny, get her good Nazi green tick and give her middle finger to Australians fighting the tyranny, and use it to travel Europe while the fight was still happening.
    It would have been a no brainer.
    She would have been seen as a traitor.
    Which she is.

    Nowadays people know that’s true………..but unfortunately, they too have the green tick and have used it, so the same standards no longer applies, and they go full opposite to what they know to be decent behaviour, and even cheer her on and wait for her reports back with baited breath.
    And declare such, as a way to justify their own failure.

    My standards have always remained the same.
    Now you can have different opinions than me regarding politics up until a point. Once you give in to communism and tyranny that’s a whole different ball game, and if you then promote yourself as some middle of the road intellect, when in fact you’re just a “whore to socialism” then you are evil and the enemy.
    30 years ago that would have been the case.
    And it is today.
    You just don’t want to hear it.

  3. Something lighthearted and uplifting for the day

    I Still Call Australia Home – Japanese performers sing with love and gratitude – – Voice Collage 4

    We are a Japanese group making music videos based in Sydney, Australia. This project, “Voice Collage”, was started in 2020 under the restriction of the Covid-19 epidemic. I named it “Voice Collage” because it was created by singing voices and smiles in a video recording.

    Our newest work is “I Still Call Australia Home”, this song is one of the patriotic songs for Australians. We performed this song by 32 participants (Mainly Japanese) living in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Newcastle. It’s been difficult to return to Japan due to this restriction, so we sang with love and gratitude for being able to stay in Australia. We feel Australia is our second home.

  4. The Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 requires that a postal vote application (PVA) be in the approved form [s184(1)].

    Reality, should be that you can only lodge a postal vote for, specifically, listed & proven reasons, not because it saves you the effort of physically attending a polling station ..
    It should be obvious to the Electoral folk that the troughers would/do subvert postal applications for their own benefit .. just like they do everything else they can trough off! …..

    No they aren’t. You sold your boat (a luxury item by the vast majlrity of folks’ standards. Including mine), and felt a need to use it as a sobbing martyr to your poor, downtrodden cause.

    If you truly had standards, the prime mover you alleged you still had parked up the back* would be gone. After all, you did say you don’t drive trucks anymore…

    */Ht the AdBlue Blues from February. You said wouldn’t be allowed to drive your truck ever again because it didn’t use Adblue, and all transportation links would collapse because all the Adblue users on the road would stop and be unable to run. April’s almost over, and the trucks are still running. Adblue and non-Adblue alike…

  8. Australia now has a ‘serious national security problem’ with fuel supply, as report warns we only have 68 days of reserves

    Australia now has a “serious national security problem” when it comes to fuel supply, with a report revealing how bad the situation is.

    The situation was already precarious for Australia, but now new research by The Australia Institute has revealed we have only increased our reliance on imported transport fuels in recent years.

    Now, it says Australia is reliant on imports for around 91 per cent of its fuel consumption — meaning the big oil producing nations, quite literally, have us over a barrel.

    Just 68 days of fuel in the tank

    Worryingly, the report states that Australia only has 68 days of liquid fuel to keep us going if we’re cut off — despite International Energy Agency (IEA) guidelines requiring us to hold 90 net import days worth.

    However, the average daily consumption over the last year means current stocks are expected to last just 32 days.

    “The Australian Government tries to bolster this by including some 21 days of fuel in transit to Australia or on-board ships docked in foreign ports – the majority of which are foreign vessels,” the report states.

    “There is no guarantee that this fuel would reach Australia in the event of a crisis.”

    If Australia needed to access US-based fuel reserves, the fuel would take around three weeks to get to Australia, the report states.

    That was the idea during the first couple of days but reports are that others are not having trouble with internet service in Kharkov. That he hasn’t had contact with family is worrying.

  12. I’m guessing multiple voting is the main issue in a country with compulsory voting.
    Not like the US where fraud seems to more around votes from non voters.

    Much harder to write it off as a bigger-than-usual turnout I suppose, rosie.

    The assumption of compulsory voting is that you get close too 100% of the eligible population on the day, with relatively small margins of absentees.

    And short of doing the indelible ink on the thumb thing, the multiple votes gag might be relatively easy to game amd difficult to police.

    Energy crisis: State pension warning as millions of Britons face ‘devastating’ blow (21 Apr)

    New research released on Wednesday revealed that energy prices in Great Britain are expected to remain significantly above average until 2030. The analysis has sparked concerns that the most vulnerable people in society, including older people reliant on fixed incomes, will be faced with impossible decisions to survive.

    Analysis from Cornwall Insight showed that energy prices will remain in excess of £100/MWh annually for the next decade and possibly beyond. The highs are well above the previous five-year pre-2021 average of £50/MWh in Winter and the even lower prices in pre-2021 Summer.

    Although forecasters predict prices may temporarily drop from the all-time highs seen in recent months, they will remain high and likely hike beyond the record levels seen in the coming years.

    STORY AT-A-GLANCE

    Those at highest risk of dying from COVID-19 are also at highest risk of dying from the COVID shot. The shots are also causing severe heart damage in younger people whose risk of dying from COVID is inconsequential
    While you only get at most six months’ worth of protection from the COVID shot, each injection will cause damage for 15 months as your body continuously produces toxic spike protein
    The spike protein is responsible for COVID-19-related heart and vascular problems, and it has the same effect when produced by your own cells. It causes blood clots, myocarditis and pericarditis, strokes, heart attacks and neurological damage, just to name a few
    The safety signal is very clear, with 19,249 deaths having been reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System as of November 19, 2021. Historically, drugs and vaccines are pulled off the market after about 50 suspected deaths
    Children aged 12 to 17 are five times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID jab-induced myocarditis than they are to be hospitalized for COVID-19 infection

    A white couple lived on the top floor. The couple survived the fire.
    Jesse Jackson, John Burris and Al Sharpton were furious!! They flew into LA and met with the fire chief. On camera, they loudly demanded to know why blacks, Muslims and Hispanics all died in the fire and why only the white couple lived?

    The Fire Chief said, “They were at work.”

  39. China blasts West’s theft of foreign reserves as a ‘violation of sovereignty’, says US sending weapons to Ukraine worsening humanitarian crisis

    China has called on Western states to refrain from freezing the foreign reserves of other nations, saying that the measure undermines world economic stability.

    The Chinese ambassador to the UN, Zhang Jun, made the remarks at a UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine on Tuesday. The call comes a month after roughly half of Russia’s foreign exchange reserves, worth over $300 billion, were frozen by Western countries as part of sanctions over Moscow’s military operation in Ukraine.

    “Arbitrary freezes of foreign exchange reserves of other countries also constitute a violation of sovereignty, and is tantamount to weaponizing economic interdependence,” Zhang said.

    “Such practices undermine the foundation of world economic stability, and bring new uncertainties and risks to international relations,” the envoy said, adding that they should be abandoned as soon as possible.

    Zhang also called for “eliminating the negative impact of sanctions,” saying that all-dimensional and limitless economic penalties entail “serious spillover effects, with developing countries bearing the brunt.” The envoy criticized unnecessary export restrictions as well.

    The diplomat called on the West to stop sending offensive weapons to Ukraine, warning that this would only escalate the current conflict and worsen the humanitarian crisis in the country.

  40. Thanx, Bruce, for the link to the Welsh long-duree occupation site.

    A genetic dating would help explain what the grave of the Romanised soldier might be about.
    This bit was interesting to me:

    Oddly for a Christian time, the burial mounds appear to have been reused in the Early Medieval Period, the team noted, with some 450 people’s remains recovered from the site from then and the Bronze Age together.

    Graves show what concerned people, and here we seem to have something of a reversion to traditional belief systems, probably syncretic with Christian ones in that western part of Wales near the River Severn.

On the question of whereabouts our super should be invested, (all?) members in public/industry super funds currently are fighting a rear guard action on the incursion of ESG principles on the investing of their nest eggs. While the fund’s responsibility to invest wisely for the long term benefit of the member still trumps ESG, I think it’s only a matter of time before the left ensure that our money will be pulled from anything they don’t like. It only needs a slight change to legislation for that to happen.

  47. Four persons were arrested for allegedly r@pingj a Bengal monitor lizard in Sahyadri Tiger Reserve (STR) in Maharashtra, a forest official said on Wednesday.

    The incident, which occurred at Gothane village in Ratnagiri district, came to light days after the four accused were booked for illegally entering Chandoli National Park, which is part of the reserve, with one of them carrying a gun for hunting, he said.

    The accused were being probed after they were booked on March 31 for illegally entering the forest when the crime came to light, the official said.

    The STR is spread over four districts of Satara, Sangli, Kolhapur and Ratnagiri.

    The accused were identified as Sandeep Tukaram Pawar, Mangesh Kamtekar, Akshay Kamtekar and Ramesh Ghag, he said.

    “During the investigation, the forest officials found that the accused had allegedly r@ped a Bengal monitor lizard. Their act was also recorded in a mobile phone of one of the accused persons,” he said.

    “We have recovered all the related evidence from the accused and they were granted forest department custody initially, but are out on bail now,” the forest official said.

    They have been asked to mark their presence before the forest officer, who is probing the case, every Monday, he said.

    “The four accused have been booked under various sections of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972,” field director of Sahyadri Tiger Reserve (STR), Nanasaheb Ladkat, said.

  49. Hunter Rips Joe in Blistering Letter: ‘You Have Finally Crossed the Line’

    Hunter Biden’s laptop has revealed a lot, not the least of which is that Joe Biden and his family have some serious issues.

    The National Pulse has a draft letter from Hunter to his father that was on the laptop that puts a sharp focus on that. According to them, part of the letter is mentioned in Miranda Devine’s book on the laptop and Devine appears to acknowledge that.

    The letter is sometimes hard to decipher because it reads like Hunter wrote it while on parmesan cheese or some other more powerful substance. But the gist is a lot of anger at the way that Joe Biden has treated the family

    It makes clear that there’s something very dysfunctional with the relationships in the family and that Hunter doesn’t feel like Joe is hearing or seeing it, that he’s too wrapped up in his own narrative and not seeing the worth of the people around him. It’s pretty sad when it’s Hunter who has so many issues having to preach to Joe about how to act.

  51. Michelle Obama’s brother and his wife, Craig and Kelly Robinson, are suing the private school their children attended, claiming their sons were kicked out in retaliation for their complaints about racial bias at the academy.

    The Robinsons brought the action against the University School of Milwaukee on Monday, claiming their two young sons were expelled last year after the parents raised concerns about bias in the curriculum and mistreatment of students of color, they said during an interview with Good Morning America on Tuesday.

    They are seeking financial compensation from the school, which charges about $24,000 a year for tuition, but say they will donate any monetary award to initiatives for diversity, equity and inclusion in schools.

  52. It’s Not Just Joe Biden. The United States Has A Potemkin Government

    BY: JOY PULLMANN

    Joe Biden is a symbol of the entire federal government: Its dangerous incompetence, corruption, and utter disrespect for the American people and the rule of law.

    Joe Biden’s shameful performance at the White House Easter egg roll Sunday was another strong visual indicator that he is not really governing this country. And he’s not the only sham authority in this country — our nation is replete with them.

    The term “Potemkin village” arose in Russia to describe empty buildings set up as propaganda, to give a false impression of industry and life. The fake villages were intended to hide the regime’s mass mismanagement and infliction of suffering upon its own people.

    The glorious Oxford English Dictionary gives examples of the term being used to describe everything from political situations to personal libraries. It dates the origin of the term to 1787, and today defines Potemkin as: “Sham, insubstantial; consisting of little or nothing behind an impressive facade.”

    That is precisely what the U.S. federal government has been now for many years.

    Both parties have been complicit in such behavior such that no other conclusion can be drawn but that leading elements of the Republican Party are simply a controlled opposition.

    This should not even need stating – I am not and have never been a member of the gliberal party let alone an advisor to them. The last time I voted for them was almost a decade ago and that was solely to ensure labore were turfed. I will never vote for them or any of their candidates intentionally or otherwise, ever again.

    BTW, if there’s a more strident critic of the gliberals on this blog, I’d like to know who they are. Even some of my collectivist work colleagues have conceded I’m a more strident critic of the gliberals than they are.

  59. Deceptive Edits: Audio Contradicts Piers Morgan, Shows He Warped Trump Interview Ending in Promo

    Audio provided by former President Donald Trump’s team to Breitbart News of the end of Trump’s interview with Piers Morgan proves that Morgan and his team deceptively edited the interview to make it appear as though it was a contentious ending when it was not.

    A 30-second promotional clip that Morgan released on Wednesday afternoon seemed to show Trump flying off the handle and walking out mid-interview as a righteous Morgan asked him tough questions about his views on the 2020 election. But the full story seems to indicate that Morgan’s team deceptively edited the clips together to make it as nasty as possible for Trump—and to drive up the ratings for Morgan’s new show. Morgan’s new show, Piers Morgan Uncensored, launches next week on Talk TV, a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation.

    LISTEN:

    After another minute of back and forth between Trump and Morgan, Morgan asks Trump’s team for yet another “last question.”

    Budowich replies by saying: “You’ve done last question four times now. I feel like you’re lying at this point.”

    Trump interjects and says “very deceptive.”

    “You’ve said last question four times,” Budowich says.

    “I haven’t asked about—I wanted to end with your hole-in-one,” Morgan says, then asks Trump to describe his recent hole-in-one when playing alongside golf legend Ernie Els.

    Trump agrees and says “go ahead.” Then Morgan asks his question, and Trump answers for more than a minute. After that’s over, Morgan agrees the interview is over and thanks Trump for a “great interview.”

    As they’re unhooking their microphones and Trump is getting up to leave, Trump can be heard saying “turn the camera off,” and then a Trump staffer asks to “turn the mics off too,” and Trump says “very dishonest” as the audio file ends.

    Karl Rove, a former George W. Bush adviser, told Fox News on Tuesday that a recent skit mocking Biden on Saudi television is a signal of the rift between the two countries that has also been exacerbated by the Biden administration’s negotiations with Iran on a nuclear deal.

    Rove continued, “I think the bigger issues are these three, and they feel like the new administration in the last year-and-a-half has not been working with them, but is working against the interests of their country. And they don’t understand why — they think of themselves as a strong ally and they know that we want help from them on energy issues, and they can’t understand why we have on all these big issues: Yemen, Iran, nuclear deal and military assistance to Saudi Arabia been less than forthcoming in this administration.”

    Piers Morgan’s fiery interview conducted with former President Donald Trump, as advertised in a dramatic promo Wednesday, does not quite live up to the hype.

    Whereas the 30-second ad, shared by Morgan himself, strongly suggests Trump walked out of the room after being confronted about his claims of a stolen election in 2020, audio obtained by the Washington Examiner indicates the interview actually ended amicably.

  79. Irony Alert, as Biden Preaches: ‘You Shouldn’t Make Money While You’re in Office’

    “Joe Biden being Joe Biden.” It’s a thing. And that thing is not only getting more pathetic, such as clueless Joe’s Easter Bunny minder at Monday’s White House Easter Roll, but also more mind-blowingly ironic and devoid of self-awareness. The latter brings us to the latest example.

    During his Tuesday remarks on the so-called “Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” Biden did what he always does: embellished, took credit for things he didn’t do, outright lied, and in one ironic as hell admonishment, declared: “You shouldn’t make money while you’re in office.” (Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, and the majority of the members of Congress were last seen rushing for the exits.)

    Despite the long history of Washington politicians of course making money while in office — and a hell of a lot of it — the 500-pound elephant in the room is Joe Biden himself, and his “The Big Guy” cuts of his grifter son Hunter’s shady business dealings in Ukraine and China.

  81. Before the vax mandate, Christian was a science teacher. Now he drives trucks

    Christian Marchegiani used to be a high school science teacher at St Gregory’s College in Campbelltown. Now he drives trucks.

    He left teaching when vaccine mandates were introduced last year because he refused to be vaccinated – he did not think there was enough evidence to prove they were safe or effective – and became an unofficial spokesman for teachers who felt the same way.

    He declared victory on Wednesday after the NSW government said the mandate would not continue beyond mid-May for most teachers and health workers. The decision comes amid serious shortages of health workers and teachers due to COVID-19.

    “I’ve been inundated with messages. Everyone’s saying, ‘we did it, congratulations’,” said Marchegiani, who also taught at St Joseph’s College in Hunters Hill.

    “It was a victory, but there was a lot of suffering and heartache along the way. A lot of struggles. A lot of teachers lost their homes, they couldn’t pay their rent anymore. A lot of them will reapply for their jobs, although there’s a bitter taste in their mouths.”

    However, the decision worried some of their vaccinated colleagues. “I think it is highly problematic,” said Craig Petersen, the president of the Secondary Principals Council. “I am concerned that this may compromise the safety and health of our students and staff.

  84. Putin tests ‘world’s deadliest weapon’

    Vladimir Putin has boasted that he had unleashed the first successful test of a new nuclear missile known as “Satan II” which carries a dozen warheads and could be used to strike enemies around the world.

    The missile is believed to have a range of 11,000 miles and can deliver between 10 and 15 nuclear warheads at hypersonic speeds.

    “This is probably the most destructive single weapon on earth,” Ian Williams, a fellow at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies think tank, told The Telegraph.

    “It could destroy 10 cities with one missile,” he said, as the warheads it carries can be “independently targeted”.

    According to one military analyst, if it was based in Russia’s extreme west, it could reach London in minutes. The missile will only be deployed at the end of 2022, according to Russian news agencies.

  87. CFMEU chief accused of disrupting sites to host super fund BBQs

    The head of the CFMEU in Queensland is facing court action over claims he unlawfully entered building sites and stopped work to host meetings with the industry superannuation fund.

    The building industry watchdog has alleged Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union Queensland secretary Michael Ravbar, who is also a director of state super fund BUSSQ, broke right of entry laws when he and another official disrupted Brisbane’s billion-dollar Cross River Rail project for site barbecues.

    According to the Federal Circuit Court statement of claim, in August last year a Cross River Rail project supervisor sought to block a vehicle carrying a BUSSQ trailer from entering the site as it was not authorised.

    However, CFMEU official Andrew Blakely allegedly pushed the supervisor out of the way with his hip and shoulder and directed the vehicle into the site through a gap in the boom gates.

    Mr Ravbar followed on foot as Mr Blakely directed the vehicle down the site haul road, the statement of claim said.

    It is alleged that despite the site’s senior industrial relations adviser telling Mr Blakely “you need to leave” and his access was “unauthorised”, both he and Mr Ravbar supervised the set-up of a barbecue attended by about 50 workers from labour hire outfit Heinrich Constructions.

    Mr Ravbar spoke to the workers about COVID-19, amenity issues on the project and that vaccines should not be mandatory before BUSSQ representatives then addressed the workers.

    It is also the fourth court case against Mr Ravbar for alleged industrial breaches. Most recently, he was fined $10,656 for right of entry breaches in 2020.

    Mr Ravbar joined BUSSQ as a board director in September and before that sat in on investment committee meetings as an observer. He is now chairman of the investment committee of the fund,

    The super fund has experienced a rocky start to the year, with all its employer-nominated directors quitting, its chief executive taking personal leave for several months and its CIO recently resigning.

  98. Explainer: The seats that will decide the election (and why)

    Here’s a crash course in which seats are the ones to watch this election, and why.

    To form government, a political party needs to win the majority of the 151 seats in the House of Representatives.

    Some of those seats are considered safe, where the representative voted in at the last election is so popular that they are a shoo-in for re-election, or where a community has a strong political leaning in one direction. But there are a number of electorates across the country that are deemed at risk of changing political hands – and they could win or lose the government an election.

    Many of these seats are marginal, which the Australian Electoral Commission defines as ones held by a margin of under 6 per cent (where the winning party beat their closest opponent by less than 6 per cent of the vote at the last election after accounting for preferences).

    “Safe seats” are defined as those with a margin of between 6 per cent and 10 per cent, and “very safe seats” are those with margins above 10 per cent.

    The closer the score is to zero, the more competitive the race between the candidates in that electorate at the next election is deemed to be.

    As a result, those marginal seats – where only 6 per cent of voters (or less) need to be convinced to vote differently in order for the electorates to change hands – tend to be a key focus of the major political parties in the lead up to the election.

    But not all the seats to watch are marginal. There are a number of safe Liberal seats being challenged by well-educated, well-connected and well-funded businesswomen who are frustrated that not enough is being done by the current government, particularly when it comes to climate action, and they are building momentum within their electorates.

    There are also a number of popular MPs who are retiring from politics, which could allow for other political parties and their candidates to get their foot in the door.

    These are the key seats across the country that could decide the election.

    What are the seats to watch in NSW?

    – Gilmore
    – Parramatta
    – Dobell

  104. If you really want to stand out, buy a ‘continuation car’

    Replicas would seem to be a thing, if Bentley, Aston Martin and Jaguar are anything to go by. Join the queue, if you’re a cashed-up nostalgic.

    Bentley will soon deliver the last of its 12 new Blower Bentley Le Mans cars.

    These modern-day replicas of the 4.5-litre supercharged Le Mans racing car were built using the original 1920s moulds and jigs, and traditional hand tools. They sold quickly at $US2.1 million apiece.

    Aston Martin is in the process of building a small run of new Goldfinger DB5 coupes, complete with replica James Bond spy gear (though no ejector seat, alas).

    The same company’s new-but-old 1960s DB4 GT Zagato costs £6 million (about $10.5 million) and comes with a current model Aston Martin thrown in. That’s for a very practical reason: the Zagato Continuation doesn’t pass any modern safety or emission standards so cannot be road registered in most places.

    In 2014, Jaguar built six new Lightweight E-Type coupes (the competition version of the 1960s classic) and sold them for a mighty price. Understandably, it kept going. Its latest continuation is a C-Type racer built to the exact specifications of the 1953 works cars that dominated that year’s Le Mans 24-Hour with their revolutionary disc brakes.

    Former F1 world champ Jenson Button is involved with the Radford Type 62-2. It’s a modernised take on the Lotus Type 62 from 1969, built in partnership with Lotus on Evora underpinnings.

    Ferrari’s reluctance has left a gap for others to fill, and the English RML Group is among those that have moved in while somehow dodging the lawyers of the highly protective Italian company. Officially, the RML Short Wheelbase “takes its inspiration from the great road and race legends of yesteryear”. But to most it looks remarkably like the highly prized Ferrari 250 GT SWB, first seen in 1959.

    The newcomer aims for modern comfort and uses a lot of 2022 technology. So, in strict terms it isn’t a continuation, though it is pitched at the same cashed-up, nostalgic buyers. The dashboard has a satnav system that appears only when being used. The body is made from carbon-fibre, and a rebuilt Ferrari V12 from the 1990s provides the power. This is linked to a six-speed open-gated transmission.

    RML Group does a lot of prototyping and development work for big car-makers. A spokesman for the Wellingborough-based company tells us it will produce 30 examples of the Short Wheelbase, each tailored to the buyer’s requirements. The first customer cars are now in build and deliveries are starting about August, priced from £1.35 million ex-factory. That’s nearly $2.4 million, before you start factoring in freight and local taxes.

  111. In 2014, Jaguar built six new Lightweight E-Type coupes (the competition version of the 1960s classic) and sold them for a mighty price. Understandably, it kept going. Its latest continuation is a C-Type racer built to the exact specifications of the 1953 works cars that dominated that year’s Le Mans 24-Hour with their revolutionary disc brakes.

    Husband, who is a classic car fanatic, has always lusted after the Jaguar C-Type. A production company in NZ has been manufacturing an affordable replica for some years and “the man” fancied that I could be eventually convinced that it would be a good investment. Sadly for him (but great for our finances) Jaguar has apparently withdrawn permission for the replica to be manufactured. We understand Jaguar themselves will be the only constructor from this point.

    Personally, I always thought it was a purchase only suitable for the zillionaire collectors who just garage huge collections. The C-Type, I know, is a classically beautiful sports car, but is totally impractical for a collector who wants to use them from time to time, as it lacks any sort of top – not even a canvass fold back or a mountable hard top. Woman are practical….I know.

    Interesting that Aston Martin is building a rerun of the DB5 s. Husband’s car collecting/restoring mate (they used to do this together before we bought our farm -ha! ha! says me! ) about a year or so ago bought a DB5 which he thought could be easily restored. That was before they took some of it apart and saw the extent of rust damage! Covid appeared & the car was sent to a professional restorer. Now, some $200,000 later, it still is to be reassembled! Restorer bloke reckons it will be with up to $2 million when finished. But mate’s wife… who thinks like me….is speechless….

    “It could destroy 10 cities with one missile,” he said, as the warheads it carries can be “independently targeted”.

    MIRVs (Multiple Independently-targeted Re-entry Vehicles) have been around since at least the 1980s.

    Indeed.
    I base my personal End-of-the-World scenario on someone in Russia/US/possibly China launching a nuclear attack aimed at an opposition city. As I understand things, our collective destruction would then become pretty automatic – with ICBM’s striking first, and sub launched, bombers following up.

    Not sure that Poot’s sooper dooper extra sonic [cue spooky music] SATAN missile changes that algebra at all.

  120. BTW in the midst of this spat re vaccines going on at the moment on the blog:

    Family arrived at Easter with what they thought was “Long Covid” (they had Covid about a month ago). Three days after they left, husband and I (recall – unvaccinated) came down with some respiratory “thingy” – husband reasonably unwell, me – so-so.

    Very annoying, given the almost 2 years of careful healthy diet, FLCCC protocol etc. But was it Covid? We returned to Sydney and, still with symptoms but negative RAT tests, decided to have a drive-in PCR test. Results – NEGATIVE – arrived this morning. Guess it must just be a respiratory virus of some sort – funny one too – with fleeting aches & sticky congestion in back of throat, fatigue & some digestive upset.

    The point is – we have become so entrapped in the Covid narrative, that we forget that colds and flu once were a normal facet of life!

    PS it has responded to the Vits, Bisolvin, Bonningtons Irish Moss, aspirin, and asthma inhalant, & a touch of Ivermectin on the inside of the wrists (as anything should!) – but then…..it had probably run its course!

  147. NPR CATCHING UP WITH INSTAPUNDIT: It’s planting season in Ukraine, and that means problems for global food supply.

    The day after Russia invaded Ukraine, Lebanon’s economy minister announced the country of 6.8 million people had enough wheat reserves to last just one month.

    Russia and Ukraine are major exporters of agriculture, which Lebanon depends on. Ukraine alone exported more than $27 billion in agricultural products to the world last year. About 80% of Lebanon’s wheat comes from Ukraine.

    So when the war started, so did worries of food shortages and price hikes.

    “You could say the majority of the Lebanese population is living in survival mode,” said Maya Terro, founder of the non-profit organization FoodBlessed Lebanon, which feeds vulnerable people in Beirut.

    Weeks after Russia invaded Ukraine, food prices soared. The invasion sent ripples beyond the immediate conflict zone, breaking supply chains and creating food shortages as two of the world’s biggest food exporters went to war.

    In response, Egypt’s prime minister fixed bread prices, Bangladesh launched a nationwide food subsidy program, and consumers in Indonesia noticed a favorite instant noodle dish went out of stock.

    In Lebanon, people turned to desperate measures.

    “Some families have resorted to selling their belongings in order to use the money to buy food,” Terro said.

    Lebanon is heavily dependent on food imports, so anything that happens elsewhere affects the country’s food security, Terro said. “The repercussions of war between Russia and Ukraine have led to catastrophic surges in food products like cooking oil, wheat and some types of grains.”

    Terro said FoodBlessed Lebanon had seen an increase in demand in the last few weeks. This is happening at a time when global food prices are at record highs, and prices in Lebanon have risen by 1000%.

  150. And then the worst hypocrite of all chimes in.
    The untra fucked up Notafan.
    She of the right wing good catholic girl type prior to 2020.
    She advertised herself as such.
    Very judgemental of others who didn’t come up to her Rosary clutching standards.
    Went straight into losing her shit and hysterical…screaming at the nanna killers, after swearing she’d never use a passport while scoffing at the thought there’d ever be one, abusing conspiracy theorists who were just RIGHT while she was WRONG,……. before showing her good Nazi tick to everyone and even going on Holidays to Europe with it.
    While other Australians held the line and still are.

    Hypocrites.
    Of the highest order.

  151. The Fusion Party seems to be ultra-green, for example check out their statement on renewables at this candidate’s page

    “Declare and mobilise against the climate emergency with a 10 year transition to negative emissions. Put a price on carbon and lead internationally to restore a safe climate with 800% renewables.”

    lol, and they boast about following “scientific method”

    BTW in the midst of this spat re vaccines going on at the moment on the blog:

    Family arrived at Easter with what they thought was “Long Covid” (they had Covid about a month ago). Three days after they left, husband and I (recall – unvaccinated) came down with some respiratory “thingy” – husband reasonably unwell, me – so-so.

    Very annoying, given the almost 2 years of careful healthy diet, FLCCC protocol etc. But was it Covid? We returned to Sydney and, still with symptoms but negative RAT tests, decided to have a drive-in PCR test. Results – NEGATIVE – arrived this morning. Guess it must just be a respiratory virus of some sort – funny one too – with fleeting aches & sticky congestion in back of throat, fatigue & some digestive upset.

    The point is – we have become so entrapped in the Covid narrative, that we forget that colds and flu once were a normal facet of life!

    PS it has responded to the Vits, Bisolvin, Bonningtons Irish Moss, aspirin, and asthma inhalant, & a touch of Ivermectin on the inside of the wrists (as anything should!) – but then…..it had probably run its course!

    With non stop Covid being caught by friends, family and classmates of live in Son-in-law, Daughter, Grandkids 5/8/10 Years – finally caught Cold/Flu off 10 year old after he had it for 2 weeks (all RAT and PCR Tests Negative) – had avoided Cold/Flu for over 3 years

    Drippy Nose and Chest Cough – same as you Vits, Bisolvin, paracetemol. Vicks Vapour Drops etc, but with racking chest and death rattles, (have had Pneumonia in past – 3 Pneumococcal vaccines) got urgent appt GP and she prescribed Pseudoephedrine Tabs (I know can get with Drivers Licence) and Azithromycin which I had had before when Chest Rattles, and at her suggestion had this years Seniors Flu Vaccine as has worked on me well over the last 12 years – cleared it up in a week, now Wife has caught my Cold/Flu (both of us cleared RAT/PCR Tests) and she is made of sterner stuff than me, just waiting till it blows over – me, I am a Wuss and like to hit it with what I can – also used Betadine nasal Spray

    GP suggested second Flu Vaccine late July as she felt Flu Season could be long and bad

  153. He wants those that did this brought to justice.

    No. Many people want those that did this brought to justice, including me, and I have not forgiven or forgotten.

    What A1 wanted and got was to put forward a facade of a political party, which incidentally was almost completely staffed by rellos, ask for money for months, print some black T shirts with peddler slogans on them, then not run for anything despite saying they were going to and giving the people who gave them money the very clear impression that this was the case.

    Then all the net-based material went quiet, no running for anything and now they’re living on the proceeds of the gullible.

    Clearly, they got you and I’m not surprised.

  154. China Eastern Airlines MU5735 Aircraft Flight Accident Investigation Preliminary Report has
    been completed.

    The report mainly includes factual information such as flight history, crew and maintenance personnel, airworthiness maintenance, and wreckage distribution.

    The main situations are as follows: On March 21, 2022, the Boeing 737-800 B-1791 of China Eastern Airline took off from Runway 21 of Kunming Changshui Airport at 13:16 Beijing time, rose to a cruising altitude of 8900 meters at 13:27, entered the Guangzhou control area along the A599 route at 14:17, and at 14:20:55 Guangzhou area control radar showed a “deviation” Command altitude” warning, the aircraft left the cruise altitude, the controller called the crew immediately, but received no reply.

    At 14:21 :40, the last recorded aircraft information by the radar was: standard pressure altitude of 3380 meters, ground speed of 1010 km/h, and heading of 117 degrees. Subsequently, the radar signal disappeared.

    The accident scene is located in a valley running from southeast to northwest near Mocong Village, Conan Town, Teng County, Wuzhou City, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. A puddle with an area of about 45 square meters and a depth of 2.7 meters can be seen at the scene, which is determined to be the main impact point, located at 23°19’25.52? north latitude and 111 °06’44.30? east longitude.

    The debris of the aircraft wreckage was mainly found on the ground and underground in the azimuth range from 0 to 150° of the impact point. The trailing edge of the right wingtip wing let was found approximately 12 kilometers from the main impact point.

    There were traces of fire in the forest vegetation at the scene of the accident. Major wreckage including horizontal stabilizer, vertical tail, rudder, left and right engines, left and right wings, fuselage parts, landing gear and cockpit parts were found at the scene.

    After investigation, the qualifications of the flight crew, cabin crew and maintenance release personnel meet the requirements; the airworthiness certificate of the aircraft in the accident is valid; There is no fault report and no fault reservation before the flight and short-term parking on the same day; there is no cargo declared as dangerous goods on the plane.

  155. Old Ozzie:

    Australia now has a ‘serious national security problem’ with fuel supply, as report warns we only have 68 days of reserves

    I find it too easy to believe that Australia is in this position.
    With the engorgement of the Government Leech on the economy, a Trillion dollar deficit, whores for invalids and having to import people of dubious character because our youngsters are too heavily taxed to afford their own kids, but aren’t so heavily taxed they have to support other cultures kids…
    This is incompetence from administration at a level that requires HOP time.

  156. Bosi has never got a cent off me.
    None of my effort.
    Lost me when he went on about Pedos.
    Which I have said 100 plus times.
    Still rather have a nation of Bosis than a couple of sneering from the sidelines, KD’s.

  157. Hey KD.
    I put myself forward for UAP as well.
    I failed.
    Wrong sex, probably look a bit rough around the edges, who knows.

    While you’ve done nothing like it, you’d sneer at me for having a go and not getting selected.
    Sancho from the slip lane of lies certainly has.

    All class that.
    Give me a Bosi anyday.

  158. Now on Central Australia time at Broken Hill.

    We drove the Wilcannia/Menindee road (Western), all gravel and through some beautiful countryside. All grey saltbush stark against the red soil. Except for the flood wash areas – fine, paler silt that had dropped out of suspension as the water slowed. Some of the bushes were barely visible, they were so buried.

    Menindee is full as a goog – in some places the water laps the road in to the national park. It is a magical, glittering landscape of drowned, naked gums and little waves lapping the shore. They catch carp there by the thousands, all left on the bank to rot. Made me think of their excellence as fertiliser.

    The banks are dotted with tents and vans – overflow from BH which is having some sort of Mad Max meet nearby. I expect many…many leather jacketed mullets in town – not so many engaging brilliant blue eyes though. *sigh*

    Coming in to town from the Menindee end – you can see the mighty slag heap with its funny horned business centre for miles. I love this city with its pub on every corner and its self conscious civic buildings cheek by jowl with more humble ones. Dinner is at the Musos Club opposite the Heap. Just so we don’t forget why the whole place is here.

  159. The Chinese taking in the Solomon Islands seems to me a bit like WW2 with the Japanese push at Guadalcanal, it will cut our supply lines with the USA.
    But our fucking useless government won’t worry as our strategic fuel supplies are in America (if Biden hasn’t already sold them).
    We are governed by traitors.

  161. “Declare and mobilise against the climate emergency with a 10 year transition to negative emissions. Put a price on carbon and lead internationally to restore a safe climate with 800% renewables.”

    A clear admission that renewables (ruinables) are inadequate is the aim for 800%. We used to manage quite well with a bit over 100% to allow for maintenance and other contingencies.

    What hasn’t occurred to the idiots is that if the sun isn’t shining, and the wind isn’t blowing, even 1800% won’t meet the requirement.

  162. A European business group says Western companies in Shanghai are facing a “logistical nightmare” as they start to reopen after a city-wide lockdown.

    The European Union Chamber of Commerce says that it expects the problems to last for several more weeks.

    On Friday, Chinese officials said they will help more than 600 firms restart operations in the major financial hub.

    It comes after UK and US business bodies also said their members have been hit by Covid measures in China.

    Although some firms have restarted operations in Shanghai by having their employees remain on-site, “many companies still face the challenges of labour shortages and logistical difficulties,” said Bettina Schoen-Behanzin, vice president of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China and head of its Shanghai chapter.

    “We estimate that less than 30% of their workforce are eligible to go to work due to the ongoing lockdowns, so there’s a huge gap between policy and the reality of implementation,” she added in a statement on Thursday.

    “Having an hour means that she can have what she needs done in the morning and what she needs in the evening,” Ms Rutherford explained.”

  165. Just a trim, same style, I say to the hairdresser and close my eyes blissfully for a few minutes.

    When I open them again I have a style that rivals Kennealy’s. Short and chopped in around the back.
    I’ll have to find a way to give it the fly-away look because turned under it looks gross.

    One of those times when I return from the hairdresser and head straight for the shower while a Very Insensitive Person who is male and approaching bald laughs.
