    Nations within a nation. Demanding something like a tithe on all wealth created on their land.

    Quite a different proposition.

  3. The UN was out the wreck Rhodesia and South Africa through the 60s, 70s and 80s. Now I’m sure they have their eye on us and have for decades. The whole Aboriginal grievance ‘industry’ is nothing to do with Aboriginal advancement and that is demonstrated by their zero concern regarding the treatment of women and minors. It’s all about the UN agenda and undermining Australian sovereignty plus pubic service sinecures for connected people.

    Um, your memory may be shot JC, but mine isn’t.
    How much were they going to charge you for a squeeky door?

    I think your memory mightn’t be as good as you think, numpty.
    That was me, you moron.
    They listed it on the invoice as optional for $900.
    I just laughed and said no thanks very much.
    How does it make me somehow deficient because someone quotes me a price for something and I refuse?
    The point of that story is that I took the car in the next time and someone fixed it without charging.
    Anything else you need reminding on, you just let me know, OK.

    CateringLady upset at the implication that she didn’t “step up” to the covid political challenge. She then proves that she didn’t step up by complaining about how tough it was on her parents in aged care and never says what she did about the problem. D’oh!

  16. I love my book larnin’ Bear. Amazing the things you find.

    In other news, the sunset over Darwin tonight was spectacular, aided as it was by great towers of clouds, many grey with stored raindrops. Others white and puffy and back lit with the orange/red setting sun. There was a moment when the great, burning orb touched the sea…faster…faster…and then it was gone. Nothing quite like a tropical sunset over water.

    We sat on the roof, a little beer garden perched to catch the cool breeze. Behind me was a most satisfying eavesdroppable conversation about climate bullsh*t and so called “renewables”. It was pleasing to hear someone so much younger than me casually dissecting the whole shambling edifice. And with technical precision to boot.

  32. Rebel News debate…

    Everyone says preserving free speech is good, but details of how to do that seem a bit thin.

    CauliflowerCoot will stop the upcoming Disinformation Bill, sack the board of the ABC, and support free speech generally. He’s okay with people being free to incite revolution against the government… but he is going to protect religions from criticism somehow? Weird.

    CateringLady wants to protect children against bad words and bullying that disrupt mental health. She’s for freedom of speech *but*…. yeah, righto. She can’t define where the line is, making vague references to “common sense”.

    LibDruddick goes straight to Constitutional amendment to protect free speech similar to the USA 1A. He says private institutions should be free to infringe free speech, presumably through negotiated free agreement to rules, and that it is only the government that causes a free speech problem.

  40. I suspect this what’s going on in Musk’s big brain.

    Tesla’s down 37% from its high. Which means his net worth has probably fallen by about that much.

    He was buying Twitter at only 25% off the high.
    Meanwhile Facebook is down 50% from the high, which is roughly, very roughly a similar stock for a looksee.

    He feels poorer and although may not be looking for a way out, he could be thinking he can end with the stock at a cheaper level.

    Shit really changed in terms of market sentiment over the past few weeks.

    $43 billion is a huge nut to crack relying just on Tesla stock for net worth.

    I dunno, just my guess and thinking out loud.

    FMD though, I should have shorted this thing at $52. It would have been a great trade.

  44. I watched that Rebel News debate last night. There were some problems with the format. First off Avi was just showboating, half of his questions were along the lines of “what would you do in Parliament to stop me, specifically, getting arrested for being a dickhead”. Rukshan said little (though this is probably a good thing).

    The main problem was that it wasn’t really a debate, because they all took turns in agreeing strongly with each other. It was hard to tell them apart for most of the night. What’s the point of having six or seven blokes in a row when they all say the same thing? “What do you think of FREEDOM” “Yeah nah it’s good but” “Of course I agree” “Sure sure, freedom is good” “Freedom for life!” “Lizard people chemtrails um I mean FREEDOM”

    Also there was one cameraperson who seemed to think they were shooting an episode of 24, complete with shakycam and fuzzy objects in foreground.

  59. ‘I don’t recall’: SAS soldier’s mission memory fails him

    Stephen Rice
    NSW EDITOR
    @riceyontheroad
    7:54PM May 12, 2022

    It should have been one of the SAS soldier’s most memorable missions: his last in Afghanistan ­before going home.

    Even more memorable, Nine newspapers allege, because he witnessed Ben Roberts-Smith ­execute a terrified adolescent “shaking like a leaf” with a pistol shot to the head.

    But on Thursday in the Federal Court, the soldier known as Person 11 could recall almost nothing about the 2012 operation in a village called Fasil, except that he was certain Mr Roberts-Smith did not kill the teenager.

    “Mr Roberts-Smith went inside a room in the compound with the adolescent who had been handed to you by Person 16 and shot that person in the head with a pistol,” counsel for the news­papers, Nicholas Owens SC, put to the witness. “That’s not true,” Person 11 replied.

    Another member of the patrol, a medic known as Person 16, has given evidence in the defamation case brought by Mr Roberts-Smith against the newspapers that he and another soldier manning a checkpoint stopped a Toyota HiLux ute with four men inside.

    After finding bomb-making materials in the ute, they took two of the men into custody: an older man with a full beard and a slightly chubby late teen who was “shaking in terror”.

    Person 16 said he handed the men to Mr Roberts-Smith and 20 minutes later heard him call over the radio “two EKIA” (enemy killed in action).

    Later, the medic claims, Mr Roberts-Smith told him: “I shot that c..t in the head … blew his brains out. It was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

    In court, Person 11, who was a member of the patrol and is a close friend of Mr Roberts-Smith, had little recollection of the mission.

    “You and Mr Roberts-Smith went and collected some PUCs (Persons Under Control) from Person 16?” Mr Owens asked.

    “I don’t recall collecting PUCs, I don’t really recall the mission, Mr Owens,” Person 11 said.

    Mr Owens put it to him that the last mission of the rotation would surely have be memorable.

    “We were pretty happy to have things wrapped up,” Person 11 said.

    “You can remember what happened on this mission, can’t you?” Mr Owens asked.

    “No, I can’t,” said Person 11.

    Mr Owens: “One of the EKIAs was shot by Person 56, correct?”

    Person 11: “That’s not something that I recall, Mr Owens.”

    Mr Owens: “I want to put to you that the other EKIA was shot by Mr Robert-Smith. Correct?”

    Person 11: “I don’t recall any ­engagements.”

    Person 11 was shown photographs of a body alleged to be that of the dead youth but said he did not recognise the person and denied that an AK47 assault rifle was placed on the body to give the false impression he had been armed.

    He denied the patrol carried weapons that could be used as “throwdowns” – items that could be planted on bodies to make it ­appear they were combatants.

    Mr Roberts-Smith has categorically denied shooting the teenager.

    Perhaps all he wanted to do was finish the mission and get the fvck out of the place..and, as pointed out earlier, if you are carrying 30 to 40 kilos of gear, where do you carry a “throw down” AK 47?

Gets a radio call out to tower who then manages to find him and establish mobile coms to talk him down for a safe landing. Pax also made an awesome call, they wanted him to change channels, he flat out refused because he didn’t want to risk his lifeline.

  68. no more than you could demonstrate that he isn’t correct

    I’ll do it. Only a couple of things – there are of course more, but as starters:

    1. Death camps. Utterly and irrevocably wrong, and on all counts; and
    2. ‘They will kill us all, and those who survive will wish they were dead.’

    On being proven wrong, the rancor just set in. It’s haymakers every morning from him, and people wonder why people fire one back, and right down the pipe as well.

    People (some people) used to rock in and say ‘Struth is 70% correct’. I have zero interest in adhering to someone who is 70% correct when the remaining 30% is 100% batshit craziness from the darkest corners of the wompus web that rrsrsrsr would struggle to post, and calling people cock smokers when he absolutely refuses to do the things he demands of others.

    If you could point out where ‘struth is correct’ with the abovementioned, Matrix, it would be appreciated.

    Flinders Hwy was totally washed out at Mingela a few days ago and effectively cut till Roadtek repair. Given their slovenly work practises who knows when and then it will be a trickle. Alternatives, via Harveys Range rd & Gregory Developmental rd likely to be problematic as well, Star river was 2m over road at the height and they had 1-2″ up that way from squalls last night. Bruce hwy to Ayr was particularly affected especially around Giru. Then there’s the mess from Gumlu to Proserpine that is likely to be even worse now. Burdekin Dam spilled over yesterday too.

    the 70’s were also a time of truly awful monetary management and deeply deluded regulatory overreach.
    among such wonders were price controls as an attempt to rein in inflation. nixon literally tried to freeze wages. it was a hilarity of failure and debacle, because in the war of diktat vs supply and demand, supply and demand is undefeated.
    if you mandate a price higher than market, demand collapses.
    if you mandate a price lower than market, supply dries up.

    Frankly, it was only a matter of time, given the market conditions, for Elon to impose some hardball tactics with the Twitter board. If it weren’t for the Elon bid the stock would be in the 20s now for sure.

    Some believe Elon will pay the $1b break up fee and walk away. I don’t believe that is the case and think the market is assessing correctly the new buyout price, around $40.

    Yeah, as I said we don’t know the provisions’ fine print. He could argue the breakup fee, eventually re-bid at say 40 bucks and pony up the fee. In any event, getting the deal at 40 bucks would be a discount of 26% to the original $54.20. He’d save $11 billion and even if he had to pay up $1 billion, it would still mean he saved $10 billion. It’s still a flounce, but a profitable one.

  124. Rosie, baking is not my forte at all, so I won’t be visiting any helpful sites. I would be a useless reporter of these anyway. There are huge baking competitions held here, and it is quite a thing.

    The Director of Activities (aka Hairy) has it all planned out for me anyway, kindly taking note of my interests and of places he’d like to visit or revisit. This is like a Royal Tour and I pity the poor Queen, for to keep moving and meeting up with people and on the hop constantly (plus a lot of figure-improving walking) is exhausting.

    Yesterday, for instance, was to be a ‘quiet’ day with a ‘short’ drive. He’s got the gps going now. In the event however we went to Flatford Mill with our picnic lunch, the place where John Constable painted his extraordinary clouds in what are now chocolate-box scenes. As we approached the mill we were driving down country lanes and I thought we’re reach an open field in isolated splendour. No such luck. We round the bend of the last lane and I see a huge tourist bus appear in view, and behind it a very large car park, and that is Constable country today. Visitors everywhere. However, the mill and river and lock are all there, the cottager’s cottage is now a cute little museum (where I bought a handy woolen Boadicca-check rug), and the day was fine, the walkways peppered with ambulant OAP’s.

    After lunch we head off and to my surprise I realise we are close to Sutton Hoo again – for his intention is to take me to explore the area of Rendlesham where recent archaeology has suggested a major hall of King Raedwald, of ship burial fame, had his headquarters. No signs at all suggestive of recent archaeology though, so it seems a wild goose chase until I see a sign saying St. Gregory’s Church. It’s a clue, a clue, I say, so turn around, we’ll go there. Cherche le church, I say as I said in the finding of the Bartlow Hills. He’s skeptical and sits in the car while I explore around the church and go into it, to come out exultantly saying yes, I was right, it is St. Gregory the Great, Saxon-named in the early seventh century. No sign to any recent archaeology, but we are on the Raedwald track al right.
    Documents inside the church suggest that King Raedwald did have his religious centre here on this sacred site (the church is 13th century). Bede mentions that Raedwald had two altars here: one to the new Christian god and one to the old god/s. Each-way Raedwald, I’ve always called him. More recently that’s made me think of Albo and I thought we might go home now so I could catch up on the Cat and Aussie news.

    Not so. Next he drives me to a place called Dunwich, now a small modern village on the Sussex Coast, where a thriving port town in the C13th was gradually taken over by the incoming North Sea, so that the town was holus-bolus sent underwater, to live only in myths of chiming church bells and ghostly apparitions arising at night from the deep. In his Last Kingdom series Bernard Cornwall has my hero Uhtred there fighting and setting fire to a tavern of rowdies who were after his blood. More mythology, I murmur.

    To round off the day with even more long hours of country by-ways driving (very scenic, and during which I demolished the best part of my fruit gum collection as a pick-me-up) we arrived at Aldborough much further along the coast, where a Tudor Moot Hall on the seafront is the main point of interest, although the town itself is attractive and redolent for Hairy as he spent a holiday there with his family in his teenage years. They played golf a lot there, but thankfully he didn’t insist on finding the golf course. We bought some lightly smoked haddock to have for dinner that night (we have a kitchen where we are). Freshly caught and smoked in Aldborough, and very delicious it was too.

  125. Today we took the train from Colchester to London Liverpool St Station, and tubed it to Australia House and did our civic duty giving Daniel Lewkovic LDP our vote in Reps and Senate. If he doesn’t get at least two votes from the UK we will know something is wrong with the system. Outside stood four people offering how-to-vote material – two for Labor and two for Liberals. No others at all. I took the Liberal handout just to publicly show my general inclinations and took pleasure in saying No Thanks to Labor. This was noted by a young woman who also followed us in to nominate the Wentworth Electorate in NSW. She sniffed to one side of me carrying my Liberal folder, nominating an address in Woollahra near Vaucluse where we are, and Hairy and I looked knowingly at each other: a classic Allegra-voter clone.

    We ambled out of Australia House’s magnificent marble (all Australian marble), built in 1918. Over the front entrance is an Edwardian sculpture of two Romanesque-draped women fussing over a shield, the one on the right scantily clad around the boozums and the one on the left entirely unclad on them. Hairy shyly confessed to being greatly impressed with these ladies when aged thirteen he travelled to school on the top of a double decker bus past them. Especially the very perky chest-feeders (to use the modern parlance) of the unclad one on the left. Impressionable young boys had to take whatever they could in eye-candy back in those days, he explained.

    We then wandered into St. Clement Dane’s (of the ‘bells of St. Clements’ fame), a Wren-church severely bombed in 1940 and beautifully restored now. It serves today as an RAF church and is perfectly kept with memorabilia and service details. Outside this church are two statues, one of ‘Bomber Harris’, head of bomber command (in strife these days for ordering heavy bombing of German cities) and the other of Lord Dowding, head of Fighter Command, where the inscription credits his organisational skills and leadership abilities with actually winning the Battle of Britain. Without him, it would have been lost, the inscription bravely states. Without my dad working on the spitfire engines too, I add to myself.

    Reliving Hairy’s days as a male chorister at the Temple Church, we put our noses into the church for a reccie there, and walk through the Inner Temple garden where as a younger choirboy he used to play antique children’s games of Prisoner’s Base and Jimmy Knacker (a rough one). Half of these gardens have been fashionably left to be ‘meadow gardens’, full of various flowers spilling over pathways, and with cow parsley, which fills the countryside in Spring as now, signifying the country intent. Hairy prefers it the way they were, formal, but I quite liked the wilder look with flowers everywhere piled high. Only problem was they started off a sort of hay fever in me, and hence when we went to Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese place (where Dr. Johnson and John Donne used to hang out) and met with two old College friends of Hairy’s, I kissed the one I knew, put my hand out to the one I didn’t (a very high up knight government official these days, and also ex-master of an Oxford College), I was totally embarrassed by a coughing fit I couldn’t control. In Covid-conscious London, not a good look, but I mastered it sufficiently to redeem myself in their eyes over lunch. We ended up taking lunch elsewhere as there was a forty minute wait at the famous cheese shop; we ate at a famous hang-out of journalists from Fleet Street.

    We walked Ludgate, Newgate, Aldersgate, the Old Bailey, Smithfield (once Smoothfield) and took a moment to ponder where Richard 11 met Wat Tyler, and where William Wallace was ‘executed’. Two men centuries apart who heard freedom’s call and died for it.

  126. We finished off today with a quick look at the pre-historical and Roman section of the Museum of London, which was noisy as it is currenting undergoing a big renovation. Came home to cook our British lamb chops with some Waitrose vegies. We have eaten out such a lot that these brief forays into my home cooking seem rather good. Miracles never cease. We leave here tomorrow and head to the Norfolk Broads, waterways for them what likes such. Our friends who have now sold their narrowboat recommend a day out on a self-drive boat here, but I am dubious.

    Norfolk are folk from the North, and Suffolk are folk from the south. Not to be confused with the Sussex (South Saxons) and Essex (East Saxons). More to ponder on in my dreams. It’s bedtime here.

  127. FMD, some (obviously retarded) bloke vox popped at a polling booth by Sky reporters;
    “Who are you voting for?”
    “Labour”
    “Why?”
    “For lower taxes”

    They walk among us.

    Glad to see the truth is finally sinking in with the public. Howard and Morrison have had the highest tax takes of the past thirty years.
