Just stay away from children, monty.

It’s humiliating, sure, but no I don’t think that is violent in any way.

It’s acceptable to “punch a nasti”…
…and throw unknown substances over people.

You really don’t know who you are, do you?

OMG they stole her oxygen and they were serious!!

Hate speech is not free in a Western society. We fought wars over this stuff, we know where it leads. Why do all these neo-Nazis keep showing up in support of her message? Oh that’s right, it’s because she hates the same minorities that she does.

“OMG they stole her oxygen and they were serious!!”

Another example of “unseemly”. I think it’s time this pervert apologist was given time out from here. There is ZERO justification for this support of violence towards Keen or any other woman. What the pervert apologist has done is to completely out himself as supporting physical violence, threats and intimidation against women (and men) who refuse to follow his ideological line. I call that fascism, and it isn’t just unseemly, it’s highly dangerous.

I hope the pervert apologist isn’t invited to any Melbourne Cat get together. If so, I’d call the police.

Meanwhile, someone should advise women and children to steer clear of this pervert apologist.

Yes it is, but a woman saying transgender women aren’t women, isn’t hate speech. They are entitled to that opinion and to express it. The diggers did not die so cannibal Scottish rad fems could declare their desire to eat TERFS.

We fought wars over this stuff, we know where it leads.

We fought wars over the right to freedom of speech not for 1930’s style fascist blocking of all viewpoints but one dominant one. What you call ‘hate speech’ is just a means of oppression of alternative viewpoints to yours. Remember Orwell and the unity of hatred? War is peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength. You are doing a similar thing here with Hate Speech.

Why do all these neo-Nazis keep showing up in support of her message?

You tell me. The Melbourne turn-up of soy boys in black had nothing to do with Posie or her views. If you want to consider the word ‘confected’ with regard to these strange pseudo-Nazi appearances received with what a major Jewish organisation called unusual police acceptance, then I’m listening. These appearances are staged, and not by the women who wish to be heard.

The manner in which the media reported this uninvited and unwanted crew was a disgrace, indicating what ideological barrows they wished to push. At least in the end they were forced to rescind. Not like you M0nty, who is carrying the memes through to the bitter violent end of mob rule IRL by true thugs.

It was fascinating to see yesterday in real time the media suddenly change its mind and do a brisk about turn.

It happened in all places on Outsiders on Sky. Katherine Deves was being interviewed speaking about how media reportage was always constructed implicitly from the politically correct ‘trans’ point of view.
As she spoke, a banner explaining what she was saying ran constantly underneath, which is done a lot on Sky programs. This banner declared the topic to be ‘Violence at Anti-Trans Rally’. Hairy looked at me incredulously. Do you see that? he enquired. Then, after a minute, there came a complete turn around and the banner suddenly changed to ‘Violence at Women’s Rally’.

lol. Can you imagine the sudden horror and consternation behind the cameras when the banner writers realised what they had done, that they were explicitly doing exactly what Deves was complaining about – i.e. misrepresenting what the meeting was all about.

I already told you, Lizzie. It is because they know you are on their side on this issue.

Now, that doesn’t turn TERFs into Nazis per se. Hitler liked dogs, yada yada. But when the Nazis keep turning up in support of your rallies and your response is to double down, normal people like me conclude that you are on their side.

If you are actively in a coalition with Nazis where you stand side by side behind police lines, people who aren’t chronically online like us could be forgiven for thinking you are also a Nazi. It’s rather confusing to the lay person, isn’t it?

Sky News just managed to imply that thousands of Israeli protesters are on the street because the nasty Netanyahu government was trying to hobble the Supreme Court.
The facts are different, and you can go to Caroline Glick (try Facebook) for a more responsible view.
The left in Israel tries most of the same tricks that the left in the USA uses. They have an activist Supreme Court that wants to make law rather than leave it to the duly elected government. They also want to white-ant the Israeli Defence Force and use it against the duly elected government.
The government will legislate to clip the wings of the Supreme Court and restrict it to making decisions based on law rather than leftist wish lists.
Left-leaning media here and overseas are basically anti-Israel and pro Pallie, and never more so than when Netanyahu is heading the government.

The questions the ABC doesn’t ask.
Mills was thrust into homelessness after she was evicted from public housing in the city’s north.
She is banned from putting her name down for public housing for two years, and once she does apply, faces an eight to 10-year wait to get a unit in Darwin.

I would suggest the very good reason “our” ABC didn’t ask is cos they know (like most folk) you don’t get evicted fom gummint housing for trivialities .. other than a double digit gaol sentence or several months of non payments/fiddling rent eviction is a rarity ……..

While Corrections Victoria’s policy is to house trans inmates according to their self-identification, it also has a policy of not tracking them at the same time. So it is impossible for researchers to know what the outcomes of self-ID policies will be.

Just like everything Dan does in Victoria, there are no details so there are no problems. Very stalinesque.

No. Not if you have eyes to see and ears to hear. The Nazi alignment was confected, that is clear, and that has been said repeatedly by the women who were speaking. It had nothing to do with them.
Who did the confecting might be an interesting investigation. Who most wanted these women silenced?

I am not surprised by today’s push to ban me. I am speaking hard truths you don’t want to hear. It’s up to db of course, it’s his blog.

I don’t want to ban you, M0nty, banning is against my principles, but but I’d like you to crawl away and not seriously pollute this blog as you have done on this issue. Take a voluntary break at least. You fly far too close to the wind by very overtly completely excusing violence, indeed pretending it didn’t happen, and supporting mob rule; especially when it is violence against women wanting to be women. It seems the NZ police took another view to yours on the risks to Posie.

Your appellation here will be Black Shirt for some time to come. You may not like it, but that is a hard truth with which you have to come to terms. I hope it gives you pause to reflect.

The questions the ABC doesn’t ask.

it gets better.

June Mills Gudbiling is well known in Darwin for performing Welcome to Country ceremonies, teaching children traditional stories and language, advocating for better approaches to youth justice and tackling climate change.

She does much of this work for free while living on welfare.

Thanks taxpayer!

Ms Mills Gudbiling admits she was a messy public housing tenant.

She was told by NT Housing that she no longer qualified for a three-bedroom house because she has only one son still living with her.

well, yes

They rejected the offer of a singles flat for both of them, because it only had one bedroom.

“In the end, they came to say it was about fire, that a power cord was a fire hazard,” she said.

“But they kept changing the story: It was because I had an unregistered car … there was long grass that needed mowing … it was messy.”

“I am not surprised by today’s push to ban me. I am speaking hard truths you don’t want to hear. It’s up to db of course, it’s his blog.”

No, you aren’t speaking “hard truths”, you’re speaking lies but you’re speaking something worse, far worse, you’re sneering and trivialising violence towards women whose views you don’t like. IT IS YOU WHO IS UNSEEMLY. This means you’d happily support violence towards myself, or Lizzie, or Tinta, or Pogria, or Rosie. You are obscene.

Oh and quaint that you refer to “db” and “his blog”, because I’ve noted over the last few months how you’ve made quite a few nasty remarks to him here, which I find strange,
because there’s no way you would have done that to Sinclair.

I’m not into banning, because unlike you I do believe in free speech. So I don’t care that you come here every day and splatter your unseemly bullshit here but there is one thing I will do and that is to rebut and ridicule you when you pepper this blog with your adolescent obscenities. And for those who say “scroll, scroll, scroll”, sure, they can scroll you but I won’t because the reason why we’re in this unholy and unseemly mess is because too many people for too long have ignored too many pernicious and sinister individuals like yourself.

These four gents go out to play golf one day. One is detained in the clubhouse and the remaining three are discussing their children while walking to the first tee. “My son” says one “has made quite a name for himself in the homebuilding industry. He began as a carpenter, but now owns his own design and construction firm. He’s so successful that in his last year he was able to give a good friend a brand new home as a gift”.

The second man not to be outdone, told how his daughter began her career as a car salesperson, but now owns a multi-line dealership. “She’s so successful, in fact, in the last six months she gave a friend two brand new cars as a gift”.

The third man’s son has worked his way up through a stock brokerage firm and in the last few weeks has given a good friend a large stock portfolio as a gift. As the fourth man arrives, they tell him that they have been discussing their children and ask him about his son.

“To tell the truth, I’m not very pleased with how my son has turned out” he replies. “For fifteen years, he’s been in and out of work and I’ve just recently discovered he’s a bisexual. But, on the bright side, he must be good at what he does because his last three lovers have given him a brand new house, two cars, and a big pile of stock certificates”.

Posie Parker has appeared on a white supremacist show. She plays footsie with the Nazis, under the obvious target of the enemy of her enemy being her friend. It is not surprising in the least that they have turned out to support her multiple times, since she has a history of supporting them.

You can deny it all you like, but the Nazis are going to keep supporting your position in public. If you won’t face facts and instead descend into conspiracism, that’s your problem.

Smart arsed western progressives chime in and declare Russia prevents revolutions by not having a professional NCO corps which also makes their military unprofessional.

an eight to ten year wait for a unit in Darwin

Some of Albo’s money could go straight to putting up some demountables on Crown Land around Darwin, Alice Springs, and other places of internal migration in from remote areas. Toilet and ablution blocks could be provided, or they could be individually serviced by tank water and septic tanks, with water replenished and tanks emptied regularly.

They are cheap, permanent and can be up next week, and built for a variety of housing needs – short term or longer term. If they become destroyed they are easily replaced. Having large numbers waiting for architecturally designed and builder-built unit blocks is not the way to solve accommodation problems in these towns.

I have been reading a Movie thread over at Ace. The film is “A Man for All Seasons”.
The author has pointed out the parallels to our society now.

From a narrative standpoint, however, a great story (by my lights) is the one that tells the tale that truly is eternal which brings us to A Man For All Seasons, 1966’s Best Picture Oscar winner.
It is as great as I remembered it being, but it also maps perfectly on to the recent struggle against the lockdowns, the whole red vs. blue pill, and the dangers of going against The Cathedral (in a practically literal sense). It is odd to see a movie you know well and love and yet be shocked into wanting to check the copyright to see if it was actually made yesterday.

this is the story of Sir Thomas More, who stood against King Henry VIII’s decision to split from the Catholic Church in order to secure a divorce—and who expects his adherence to the law to protect him as Henry’s sycophants (and Henry himself) try bullying, cajoling and finally tricking him into breaking the law. Anything to get his agreement, which only seems to be important because he won’t give it.

Successful, respected, principled, we see More lose all his worldly goods, we see his family turned against him (at least insofar as supporting his principles), we see him jailed and finally railroaded with an outright lie in a court of law. And, in a scene that is apparently close to historical truth, we see him executed. (Spoilers on a 500 year old event?)

Here, More is not even expressly going against Henry VIII: He’s simply not going with him, and that is enough to spur the escalating madness. Throughout the movie, More (who is not naive) is increasingly red-pilled, as he realizes if the King wants you dead, you’re dead, law be damned. Throughout, his friends and allies are imploring him to be reasonable, because it’s better than the alternative. (Relevantly, the issue of “right” or “wrong” isn’t really at play here, except in the sense that Henry feels he’s in the wrong, and he can’t feel that he’s the wrong.)

Apologies for the word wall, I don’t normally indulge in them but I thought some here may find it as fascinating as I have, given the current situation in most Western countries.

What neo-Nazi’s do is their pathetic business and I have no truck with it nor any other despicable totalitarian ideology, such as Communism, which aims to replace the family with the State.

Similarly, people wish to be transgender, that is their business, provided they keep away from inducting children under 18 into their fetish or confusion, or demanding in Communist fashion that the State do so.

Mainly, I will absolutely fight the worrying trends in society that are happening right now to revert to the ideological forms of the 1930’s, of mob rule by intimidation, to silence all dissenting voices.

I’ve always l acknowledged that, like all vaccines and medications, covid vaccines, in rare cases, have serious adverse side effects.

Did you? Really? Yet at the time of the roll out you attempted to nudge others to get the jab, admitting that you wanted out of lockdown and if that was the only way…

And rare, you say.

From your link: 60 new cases.

The latest Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) weekly vaccine safety report, released on 28 October, has confirmed zero new deaths associated with COVID-19 vaccination since the start of September.

The regulator did, however, confirm 60 new likely cases of myocarditis since the last week, up to 24 October.

Rosie: The failures to recognise myocarditisin a timely manner in some young people and prevent their unnecessary deaths is particularly tragic.

Unnecessary deaths, yes.

Actual real life neo-Nazis disagree. They think your position is just swell.

So I guess you’ll drop support for a cause they keep on turning up to support? No? Ah well then. Trucks it is.

I think this whole thing is a rather meaningless circus in the culture wars, but I have the privilege to think that because I am not LGTBIQ+. People who are in one of those groups are steaming. I respect them enough to concede the floor to them on this issue.

The wider problem is that if this is what the Right thinks is important in the year of our Lord 2023, this is probably why they keep losing elections.

Far more worrying.

First it’s liquids, then eggs (though the cheapskates might find them a bit expensive these days), pies, fruit and then bullets.

These things always escalate if left unchecked on account of the childish mindset of the protesters.

Lizzie, there was no violence. No one was hurt, there were no injuries. Your flowery language is a vain attempt to confect something that did not happen.

Liar lying lyingly. Go away and review a less selective range of evidence.

Posie Parker’s message is hate and bigotry.

LOL. Bit rich coming from a supporter of rabid trans-women (???). Are you yet able to define a woman?

A bit of shouting and jostling was all she had to face.

Under 48 hours ago, you were gloating about her being egged (it was a tomato based substance, but details so not matter to lying leftards).

Note that you are being very selective, in the modern j’ismist fashion. Not even accepting that she was pushed and having liquid thrown at her, you have completely ignored the attacks on her supporters, more than one of whom was openly punched.

Go back to Phat Pussy, and continue the mutual stroking session with Steve and Homer.

Posie is happy to dump the term feminist now. So am I, because it is a devalued currency when today’s feminists fail to speak up for genuine oppressions of women and concentrate on middle-class wokeness, which can be quite detrimental to women’s real interests.

Posie generally allies with the Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists known as TURFS. They include such feminist luminaries as Germaine Greer and J.K. Rowling and many lesbian women. None of them are Nazis. What a ludicrous idea that is being put forward by our resident Black Shirt.

Newly discovered diary records landmark sighting of Australia in 1687
Rob Harris
By Rob Harris
March 27, 2023 — 5.30am

London: A newly discovered 330-year-old journal that contains an eyewitness account of the first verified French sighting of the Australian coastline is expected to fetch more than half a million dollars when it goes up for auction in London this month.

Unpublished and unknown to historians, the handwritten diary of the Louis XIV royal fleet’s senior surgeon, known only as “Bremond”, recounts the voyage of the L’Oiseau under Captain Abraham Duquesne-Guitton, as part of a second French mission to Thailand in 1687.

Five ships left Brest, a port city in north-western France, on March 1, and sailed to Cape Town, from where they departed on June 28 aiming for Batavia, now Jakarta. But a week of violent storms drove them further east than planned, causing their unexpected landfall in Western Australia, north of the mouth of the Swan River.

The journal, which will go on sale in the region of £350,000 ($643,105) through Christie’s Private Sales, is thought to be the only 17th-century manuscript description of Australia to have come to the market – by some way the earliest mention of Australia ever offered for sale.

The voyage described in Bremond’s journal formed part of a flurry of diplomatic exchanges between Siam and the French court of Louis XIV over a decade, and was led by the diplomat and mathematician Simon de la Loubere and Claude Ceberet, a director of the French East India Company.

The mission also comprised 14 Jesuit scientists under Pere Guy Tachard, and a considerable military force carried in five warships – including Bremond’s L’Oiseau – of 46 guns.

Thomas Venning, head of books and manuscripts at Christie’s in London, said such a find was “extremely rare”.

“In 25 years as an autographs specialist at Christie’s, I’ve never seen anything similar,” he said.

Venning said when his research showed up that the ship had made an unexpected landfall on the Australian coast he started frantically turning the journal’s pages to see what Bremond had said about it.

“It was a really heart-in-mouth moment,” he said. “I had no idea if he would describe it at all! When I saw the words Terra Australis (or ‘terre auxtralles’ in this rather eccentrically spelled French) in a manuscript written in 1688, I was completely dumbstruck.”

Translated from French, Bremond records seeing “Eendrachtsland or Terra Australis” on August 4.

“I was one of the first [to see it] with the chaplain as we walked on the poop. At first sight, we thought that it was some ships but as we sailed onward at speed in a short time we saw that it was rocks,” he wrote.

“At the same time as we were saying ‘there’s land’, Mr Duquesne came close to us, and we said to him that we had just seen land; he much surprised climbed the main shrouds [and] found that it was true. All of a sudden, everyone was much surprised, for everyone was packed one next to another.”

Bremond, who wrote that the fleet had been blown off course days earlier due to a storm, said that they did not precisely know by what people inhabited the land.

“Perhaps there is no one but for a few people; what makes one think this is that the earlier navigators having been in these lands found the mark of the foot of a man which was a foot and a half long.”

The visit of L’Oiseau to Western Australia is the first verified French sighting of Australia, with historians recording it as the 33rd verified sighting of the coast by any European vessel. The sighting was noted at least as early as 1741 in Jacques-Nicolas Bellin’s chart of the Indian Ocean.

It was and remains quite clear that the pseudo-Nazis at the Melbourne rally were approved of and supported by the VicStasi.

Can someone please let me know what “rights” trans people do not currently have when compared to normal people?

They have all the rights of any citizen. What they seek are ‘new rights’ that would require non-gendered public facilities, non-gendered legal documentation and socio-linguistic multi-gender recognition. What is at issue is that these new rights would impinge on the natural rights of what is normal in human life, the presence of two differentiated sexes. Most particularly, and where it is more obvious, is that transgender males turning female impinge on all of the existing rights of the female sex.

One could summarise it as about toilets and sporting events – but it is much more than that.

A sane society would accept some people, rarely till recently, will change genders, but document that change for passports and other legal matters. Disabled facilities are available when change rooms and toilets are at issue or are not unisex in their design (as many are these days). If these are not available then men feeling a bit female should simply use the male facilities, rather than impose on the genuine females who have separate facilities for good reason. A considerate approach by all would make this work without social disruption.

Obviously, transfemales, not being physiological women, should not complete in sports with women.
The obvious fact is finally being recognised by many sporting bodies.

Also, sheer insults, such as women being asked if they are male or female as they enter maternity wards to give birth, or who are required to chestfeed not breastfeed, should not be tolerated. If a pregnant woman on male hormones claims to be a man in a maternity context, she should be kindly told she is actually a female today. I’d also ask her to stop the male hormones before she does further harm to her baby.

A third of the nearly 400,000 public sector workers across the state are women, and a third are aged under 35, Mr Samaras told the panel on the ABC’s election coverage on Saturday night.

“They have effectively now become, across the country, but particularly in New South Wales and Victoria, Labor’s new working class,” he said.

“There’s a slow realisation that this particular group, largely females, tertiary educated, are overwhelmingly the biggest supporters of the red side of politics.”

‘Hang out and be a dad’: Lib leadership in doubt as Matt Kean says no

Samantha Hutchinson National reporter

NSW’s high profile former treasurer, Matt Kean, has ruled out a tilt at being the opposition leader, filling a vacuum left by Dominic Perrottet, saying he has a young family who he wants to spend more time with.

Mr Perrottet resigned from the Liberal Party leadership in his concession speech on Saturday night after the Coalition’s crushing defeat.

Some in the Liberal Party are hoping he could be convinced to fill a casual vacancy in the Senate formerly occupied by the late Senator Jim Molan. Preselection for the position is scheduled for late next month, in a deliberate decision not to clash with the state election.

Already, the starting list for preselection is long, with names circulating including former Wentworth MP Dave Sharma, former NSW transport minister Andrew Constance and one-time Bennelong candidate Giselle Kapterian.

The NSW Liberals face an uncertain week as the parliamentary team sizes up potential replacements to lead the party, with former sports minister Alister Henskens and attorney-general Mark Speakman emerging as two potential contenders amid the fallout of the shock loss.

But the biggest surprise came from the ebullient deputy Liberal leader Mr Kean, the leader of the dominant moderate faction, who announced on Sunday he had decided against standing for the leadership. He also revealed he had decided against a return to the top rungs of the parliamentary team.

“I have decided not to throw my hat in the ring for the NSW Liberal leadership,” Mr Kean said. “I have a young family and I would love to spend a little more time with them. The election result will enable me to do that.”

Mr Kean said his young son had turned three and he wanted to spend more time with him, in a statement which also praised Mr Perrottet for his service.

“Now is the time for me to hang out and be a dad,” he said, adding that he would continue to serve his constituents and the Liberal Party, “though not as leader and not as part of the leadership team”.

On Sunday, MPs said the bulk of discussion around potential leaders had centred on Mr Henskens and Mr Speakman, both of whom are barristers and senior counsels. Both had been touted on Saturday evening as potential starters by outgoing transport minister David Elliott.

“I would have thought the three leading candidates will be Alister Henskens, will be Mark Speakman and of course will be Matt Kean,” Mr Elliott said.

On Sunday, Mr Henskens didn’t rule himself out of a leadership tilt, telling Sky News that he would wait to discuss the party’s direction with colleagues and members. “There are a whole lot of seats that are still undecided, I’m much more interested in scrutineering … than talking about leadership,” the frontbencher said on Sky News.

When asked about the result, Mr Henskens was quick to assert that it was not the “landslide” the Labor Party endured in 2011, when it lost 15 seats to the Coalition at the end of Kristina Keneally’s term. He also argued the party had suffered a “perfect storm” of hurdles including a dozen retirements, difficult redistributions as well as an “It’s Time” factor which had set in after 12 years in government.

He said Labor ending up with 45 to 48 seats, in a parliament which required 47 votes for a majority, would produce a “hotly contested political environment”.

Mr Henskens entered parliament in 2015 after a long stint at the bar, and rose to the ministry in 2019 as families and community services minister. In the last government, he also assumed responsibility for sport, enterprise, investment and trade in a reshuffle after Stuart Ayres’ resignation from the frontbench.

Mr Speakman, who represents the seat of Cronulla and has also been regarded as a potential successor to Scott Morrison in the federal seat of Cook, joined parliament in 2011 after a career at the Bar. He held the heritage, environment and domestic violence ministries before being appointed attorney-general in 2017.

Within the party itself, some wings are yet to give up hope of Mr Perrottet changing his mind to stay on as leader to steer the reconstruction phase, even as they know the chances are slim.

A resolute Mr Perrottet addressed Liberal HQ in Sydney’s CBD just before 10pm on Saturday where he declared it was “very clear” the party needed a “fresh start” after the election defeat.

A third of the nearly 400,000 public sector workers across the state are women, and a third are aged under 35, Mr Samaras told the panel on the ABC’s election coverage on Saturday night.

“They have effectively now become, across the country, but particularly in New South Wales and Victoria, Labor’s new working class,” he said.

“There’s a slow realisation that this particular group, largely females, tertiary educated, are overwhelmingly the biggest supporters of the red side of politics.”

It has been quite obvious for some years that the Liars are now the party of the tertiary credentialled (but not educated), publicly funded (not all of them are public servants, there are many NGOs that are publicly funded), often inner-city dwelling, frequently female, demographic.

The (real) working class can kiss their arse, they’ve found a new voting demographic at last.

Culture wars were invented by agents of the rich as another way to fool idiots into voting for plutocrats.

You know who else blamed the plutocrats?

Hitler.
Also Plutocrat was often used as a coded way of referring to Red Sea Pedestrians in Germany.

Dont be a Hitler supporter monty/Spode.

In that speech, Goebbels claimed that “English capitalists want to destroy Hitlerism” in order to retain its imperial status and harmful economic policies.

This was portrayed as Jewish, so as to attack both Communism and plutocracy, describing Jews as being behind both. Anti-capitalist propaganda, attacking “interest slavery”, used the association of Jews with money-lenders.

Nazi propaganda and officials such as Robert Ley describe Germany as a “proletarian nation” as opposed to the plutocratic England, a political divide that Goebbels described as “England is a capitalist democracy” and “Germany is a socialist people’s state.

The AFR View

Another election slide into bigger spending, debt and government

Australia’s post-2008 political slide continued in NSW on Saturday, without any sign of the microeconomic reform agenda that created the nation’s modern prosperity.

Much like federal Labor last May, premier-elect Chris Minns has led NSW Labor back to office with no real policies to guide the nation’s most populous state through the gathering global economic slowdown and beyond.

Saturday’s NSW election continues Australia’s post-2008 global financial crisis political slide into bigger spending, bigger debt and bigger government, without any sign of the mainstream microeconomic reform agenda that Labor and Liberal governments implemented in the 1980s and 1990s to create Australia’s modern prosperity.

Mr Minns’ unfunded promises to boost the pay, conditions and staffing ratios of frontline essential workers and alleviate the cost of living by abolishing the public sector wage cap copied Anthony Albanese’s election tactic of promising more funding for the “care economy” and support for a minimum wage increase in line with inflation.

There is no sense of where the money is going to come from in NSW, at a time when the budget priority should be repairing the hole blown in the public finances by the pandemic, paying down debt, and making the state a more attractive place in which to invest.

Mr Minns’ pledge to enshrine government ownership of Sydney Water in the state’s Constitution is a stunt wrapped up in a slogan. But Labor’s populist campaign against privatisation rules out using public asset sales and the user-pay principle to fund the cost of time-saving, congestion-busting infrastructure projects.

The only fiscal plan seems to be to call on the Albanese government to revisit Scott Morrison’s generous GST distribution deal with Western Australia.

Squabbling over shares in the declining revenue raised by Australia’s so-called “growth tax”, introduced 23 years ago, to fund more redistribution and higher social spending today is symbolic of the entire political system’s failure to progress the fair dinkum incentive-sharpening tax, workplace and regulation reform agenda needed to help grow a bigger pie.

Federal Labor sloganeered about “getting wages moving again”. But it has paid lip service to the Productivity Commission’s latest productivity-enhancing to-do list to sustainably grow real wages, while delivering the retro “pattern bargaining” political stitch-up that benefits the institutional interests of Labor’s union paymasters.

Beholden to the unions

Mr Minns’ maiden speech to parliament in 2015 flirted with reducing union control in the ALP. But he is now beholden to Labor’s industrial wing.

The NSW Rail, Tram and Bus Union’s disgraceful and highly political rolling industrial action – which blackmailed the Coalition into retrofitting NSW’s new fleet of trains with guard compartments at a cost of $1 billion – helped to get Labor elected on Saturday.

State Labor governments’ ideological refusal to allow coal and gas to be included in the National Electricity Market’s capacity mechanism has added to the risk of the grid going dark amid the transition to renewables.

Will Mr Minns back starting Narrabri to tackle the east coast gas crisis and help bring down electricity prices?

His campaign thought-bubble about the state buying the Eraring coal plant to help keep the lights on suggests wall-to-wall mainland Labor governments won’t necessarily increase the policy clarity and certainty around Australia’s energy transition.

The NSW Liberal Party avoided a repeat of the teal wipeout in blue-ribbon inner Sydney seats that helped to sweep away the Morrison government, but lost traditional swing seats in aspirational western Sydney.

NSW voters have turfed out what was, overall, a good government. Mike Baird’s asset-recycling infrastructure program literally got Sydney moving again after a decade-and-a-half-long stall under Labor.

Gladys Berejiklian’s vaccine-led reopening strategy was the blueprint that led the country safely out of the COVID-19 gilded cage.

And Dominic Perrottet led the national debate about structural reform of tax and federal-state financial relations.

Mr Perrottet was also elevated to premier before his time, after Ms Berejiklian was forced to resign by the Independent Commission Against Corruption inquiry into pork-barrelling allegations that don’t meet the average person’s definition of genuinely corrupt conduct.

Would a personally popular female premier, who was strongly associated with the government’s infrastructure achievements, and who saved Australia from the pandemic, have lost on Saturday?

It’s scandalous that 18 months later, the ICAC is yet to deliver its verdict on Ms Berejiklian.

Ukraine Offensive Takes Shape, With Big Unknowns

Weapons and training from NATO allies will be pivotal, while targeting will seek Russian weak spots

After months of new weapons deliveries from the West, Ukraine is poised to punch back at Russia’s invasion forces in coming weeks—a high-risk campaign that will set the course of subsequent battles and potential peace negotiations.

Ukraine’s operational plans remain confidential, but some aspects of what is to come are discernible from a look at the equipment each side has—or doesn’t have—and their recent performance on the battlefield. Both are struggling to make gains and have been burning through munitions at rates not seen since the two world wars.

Ukrainian forces have been training for months in Western Europe and the U.S. to use modern equipment and to operate on a battlefield in large formations. Kyiv’s prospects will depend on its ability to coordinate different types of troops, including artillery units, tank corps and foot soldiers, in what are known as combined-arms maneuvers.

Despite the training and the influx of North Atlantic Treaty Organization equipment, Ukraine won’t be able to launch a NATO-style assault, because neither side controls Ukraine’s skies. To dislodge an entrenched enemy, as Ukraine wants to do, the textbook approach for the U.S. and its allies would begin with a massive air assault using aircraft and cruise missiles. That is how the U.S. launched both wars in Iraq.

“We would attack from the air and establish air superiority,” said John Nagl, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel who is now an associate professor of warfighting studies at the U.S. Army War College. In Ukraine, he says, neither side has a real air-power advantage.

Ukraine has only a limited number of fighter planes and attack helicopters to deploy and needs to protect them, so is unlikely to risk them in a frontal attack on awaiting Russian forces, Mr. Nagl said.

Instead, strategists say, Ukraine will probably launch a big attack—or multiple smaller attacks—using ground-based precision long-range weaponry including rockets and artillery, much of it donated by Western allies. U.S. M142 Himars or M270 mobile rocket launchers and big cannons such as howitzers can fire satellite-guided explosive projectiles over distances up to 50 miles.

That range, combined with intelligence from Ukrainian and Western sources, should allow Kyiv to target Russian forces far behind front lines. Ukrainian troops over the past year have scored big hits against Russian logistics bases, command centers and supply lines. The goal of such strikes is to isolate units on the battlefield, undermine their ability to fight and sow disarray within Russian ranks.

Following an initial fusillade of artillery and rockets, Ukrainian ground forces are likely to advance in large numbers, much as U.S. troops would. A big difference is that U.S. or allied forces would be led by a vanguard of modern main battle tanks, while Ukrainian forces will only have a small number of them.

Britain has promised to deliver 14 of its Challenger 2 tanks, and at least 22 German-made Leopard tanks are arriving from Poland and Norway, with more expected soon from other countries, including Germany.

The U.S. has pledged M1 Abrams tanks, but they are slated to arrive only later this year.

Ukraine also has several hundred Soviet-era tanks from its own armories, ones donated by former Warsaw Pact neighbors, and others captured from Russian troops. How many Kyiv has, and has lost in battle, is unclear.

While those older models lack Western tanks’ armor or ability to target and fire on the move, many have been updated by Ukraine or its allies with some modern equipment, such as night-vision gear, targeting computers and secure communications.

Behind a front wave of tanks would likely follow dozens of armored fighting vehicles. Some, such as the French AMX-10s and U.S. Bradley Fighting Vehicles, resemble tanks, thanks to their treads or gun turrets. The Bradley carries an enormous machine gun able to fire up to 300 rounds a minute and destroy a Russian T-72 tank from over a mile away. It also carries TOW antitank missiles that can destroy a target from more than 2 miles away.

Behind or alongside those vehicles with big guns, Ukraine is likely to deploy armored infantry carriers like U.S.-supplied Strykers. The fast and mobile eight-wheeled vehicles can transport foot soldiers to take and hold territory, or to fend off Russian infantry that might threaten Ukrainian forces.

“While I’d prefer to be in an M1, the truth is that infantry fighting vehicles are going to be able to do a lot of damage,” Mr. Nagl said.

John Spencer, chair of urban warfare studies with the Madison Policy Forum, a think tank in New York, said making some tangible progress now—before other weaponry like the Abrams tanks arrive—is important for maintaining Western support.

“A Ukrainian spring offensive with Leopards and Bradleys in the lead will do more for them in the alliances than any actual ground they take back,” he said. “Ukraine has to have movement and has to have wins.”

Where Ukraine will strike Russian troops remains an unknown. Mr. Spencer said Kyiv would likely stay flexible, probing to find Russia’s weakest defenses and holding back a strike force that can be deployed elsewhere. He said this strategy allowed the Ukrainians to reclaim thousands of square miles in the northeastern Kharkiv region last fall, after messaging for months that they would launch an attack in the southern Kherson region.

Phillips O’Brien, a professor of strategic studies at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, said Kyiv would like to sever the land corridor Russia has established along Ukraine’s southeast by pushing from Zaporizhzhia toward Melitopol and the Sea of Azov. Success would bisect the Russian forces and cut supply lines to those further west, in the direction of the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula.

Moscow, anticipating such an assault, has spent months building up defensive fortifications in the Zaporizhzhia region, which some analysts said could lead the Ukrainians to instead try another approach.

“One thing they have been good at is seeing where they can take advantage of weaker points in the Russian line,” Mr. O’Brien said of the Ukrainians. “The key thing is to have some success.”

Physical defenses are only an obstacle if well defended, said Mr. Nagl. If Russian troops don’t man trenches, Ukraine can bulldoze them and advance, he said.

Mr. O’Brien said he worried that the weapons deliveries from the West could pressure Ukraine to launch an offensive without all the capabilities it needs to succeed—particularly longer-range weapons that could help cut Russian supply lines. Since last year, Ukraine has asked the U.S. for Army Tactical Missile System, or ATACMS, which has a range of about 190 miles.

The Biden administration, which has pledged more than $32 billion worth of weapons and other security assistance to Ukraine, has declined to provide ATACMS over concerns Ukraine could use it to strike Russian territory and spark a wider conflict with the West.

But Mykola Bielieskov, research fellow at the Kyiv-based National Institute for Strategic Studies, a government-backed think tank, said the long fight for Bakhmut had depleted the Russians, potentially giving Ukraine a chance to make progress.

“Now, a unique window of opportunity might be opened to do an offensive, with Russia weakened given its unsuccessful offensive and before another possible round of Russian mobilization,” he said. But he added that both sides were now facing the same problem, after a year of fighting: “difficult mobilizing resources to sustain the same level of fighting.”

For Ukraine to succeed against Russia’s deeper resources and entrenched defenses it will need a combination of skill and luck, finding and quickly exploiting weak points, say strategists. While Kyiv’s forces are more motivated and, in some cases, better armed than Moscow’s troops, Russia has had months to prepare for a Ukrainian attack and shown greater willingness to expend lives and materiel.

“This is going to be very, very difficult,” said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in an interview. “The big potential and brutal force of the Russians cannot be underestimated.”

Glenn Greenwald And Russell Brand: They Are Trying To Silence Dissent

Journalist Glenn Greenwald talks about the big-picture societal struggle behind the decline in public trust of experts and establishments in Western society, with “Stay Free” host Russell Brand.

They discuss questions such as: “Why are the elites no longer even pandering to ordinary people? Do they think advances in AI technology and the militarization of police mean they no longer have to pretend to listen to us?”

GLENN GREENWALD:

What I concluded… was that the elite class has two options.

You can appease the anger of the masses, give them just enough to keep them just enough satisfied so they don’t want to get off their couches and risk things.

Or you can say you don’t give a f@ck about them, ”

They probably will get to the point where they want to revolt, and so our strategy instead will be to militarize.

To build a para-militaristic society where we keep them under constant surveillance, make sure the weapons we have are far greater than the weapons they have, so if they do want to try something, they’re going to be crushed by force.”

And that will either deter them and convince them ahead of time that it is futile, or if they try it, they will in fact be crushed.

And clearly, the elite class has chosen that second option.

RUSSELL BRAND:

Yeah that’s not a heartening note to end on, Glenn. The elites have armed themselves to the teeth. Gone are the glory days when it could be considered compassion to hurl dollar bills out of the limousine at the rats and scumbags in the gutter. I think that you’re right…

From the Comments

Interesting read….hence, the Tyranny of Oligarchy.

“He did not see that the continuity of an oligarchy need not be physical, nor did he pause to reflect that hereditary aristocracies have always been shortlived, whereas adoptive organizations such as the Catholic Church have sometimes lasted for hundreds or thousands of years. The essence of oligarchical rule is not father-to-son inheritance, but the persistence of a certain world-view and a certain way of life, imposed by the dead upon the living. A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors.” (George Orwell, 1984)

In that speech, Goebbels claimed that “English capitalists want to destroy Hitlerism” in order to retain its imperial status and harmful economic policies.

In my files I have an ET of a booklet written by Goebbels in 1929 to explain Nazism to the German worker. It was reprinted several times into the 1930s, which means several hundred thousand copies were distributed.

In concluding the section subtitled “Why are we Socialists”, he writes…

“The worker has a claim to a living standard that corresponds to what he produces. We have no intention of begging for that right. Incorporating him in the state organism is not only a critical matter for him, but for the whole nation. The question is larger than the eight-hour day. It is a matter of forming a new state consciousness that includes every productive citizen. Since the political powers of the day are neither willing nor able to create such a situation, socialism must be fought for. It is a fighting slogan both inwardly and outwardly. It is aimed domestically at the bourgeois parties and Marxism at the same time, because both are sworn enemies of the coming workers’ state. It is directed abroad at all powers that threaten our national existence and thereby the possibility of the coming socialist national state.”

The section includes a cartoon of a Communist and a Social Democrat (roughly equivalent to Anglo Labour parties) accusing each other of abandioning the working class, captioned ‘Der Denkender Arbeiter kommt zu Hitler’ (‘The thinking worker comes to Hitler’).

By 1933 the Nazis held more seats in the Reichstag than the Social Democrats and Communists combined.

Andrews makes flying trip to China in breakthrough visit

Gus McCubbing Reporter

Daniel Andrews is set to fly to Beijing as he seeks to boost the number of Chinese students studying in Victoria, noting that two-way trade was worth more than $40 billion last year despite COVID-19 shocks.

The Victorian premier’s four-day trip will be his seventh visit overall to China and his first since 2019. It is also the first visit to China by an Australian state or federal leader since the pandemic.

Victoria has about 42,000 Chinese students enrolled in higher education, but Mr Andrews said before his flight to Beijing on Monday night that he wanted to increase that by up to 20,000.

The Victorian premier, who in 2020 controversially signed up to China’s Belt and Road initiative, will be briefed by Australia’s ambassador to China, Graham Fletcher, on Tuesday and meet senior representatives from China’s education department. He will later meet senior officials in Jiangsu province and the city of Chengdu, in Sichuan province, before returning on Saturday morning.

“China is incredibly important. Our two-way trade in 2022, with all those COVID shocks, was still in excess of $40 billion. This is our largest and most significant trading partner,” he said on Sunday.

“We’ve got about 42,000 Chinese students enrolled in Victorian higher education settings – those students are a really significant part of our Victorian economy. Close to $14 billion worth of economic activity can be traced back to our international education sector.

“This is a great city and a great state to study and learn in. International students are more than welcome. And they are very strongly supported.

“We have to always impress upon all of our partners, China being the leading partner, that we want their students to come here and if they do, they’ll be they’ll be part of a respectful community, a community that values them.”

Asked why he was travelling without a media contingent, Mr Andrews said the trip would involve back-to-back meetings without any “picture-friendly” tours or major events.

He said he had spoken to Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, who was “very supportive” of the visit, and that he did not expect to be questioned about Australia’s $368 billion AUKUS submarine deal.

“I’m a state leader – matters of defence policy, strategic policy and foreign policy are a matter for the federal government.

“This trip is about making sure we have as many students choosing to come to Melbourne as possible … not going to Canada, or to the US, or to England instead, or indeed Sydney, Brisbane or Perth.”

Mr Andrews said that although the Victorian government’s views on human rights were “very well known” by all its trading partners, he would not discuss the detention of Australian writer Yang Hengjun and journalist Cheng Lei in China with any Chinese officials.

“There are a number of people that are in custody. I just want to make it very clear, that would not be something that I would raise because they are deeply sensitive matters,” he said.

“They’re best dealt with by the Australian foreign service. Some things are absolutely appropriate to raise. Other things you need to be very careful when you are the leader of a sub-sovereign state.”

Assistant Trade Minister Tim Ayres will visit China this week in the first trip to the country by a federal government representative since Australia announced details of the AUKUS security pact. He will attend the Boao Forum for Asia, alongside an Australian delegation that includes Fortescue Metals Group founder Andrew Forrest.

“The Boao Forum provides a platform for high-level dialogue between governments, business, academics and other non-government organisations to discuss regional economic and trade issues,” Mr Ayres said in a statement.

“In addition to engaging in a series of meetings to discuss trade and investment, I will participate in a panel session exploring the future of clean energy.”

He will be the first Australian minister to attend the forum since 2016.

Last year, Victoria attracted more international students from India than from China.

It is the dominant state of choice for Indian international students, and drew 53,189 or 41.2 per cent of the 128,979 students enrolled in Australia last year, according to the Department of Education.

Mr Andrews visited China once each year from 2015 to 2018, and twice in 2019.

Glenn Greenwald And Russell Brand: They Are Trying To Silence Dissent

Journalist Glenn Greenwald talks about the big-picture societal struggle behind the decline in public trust of experts and establishments in Western society, with “Stay Free” host Russell Brand.

They discuss questions such as: “Why are the elites no longer even pandering to ordinary people? Do they think advances in AI technology and the militarization of police mean they no longer have to pretend to listen to us?”

They aren’t trying, they succeeded decades ago. Does anyone remember Manufacturing Consent? Apart from a few strident left wingers how many read texts like Manufacturing Consent? Since when have the elites been pandering to ordinary people? Greenwald and Brand are to be commended for pointing out the issue but I much prefer people apply a historical perspective to it. That won’t happen because today subjects like history and philosophy are regarded as irrelevant. Fools be people who think like that. It isn’t my generation that is going to raise this into a public issue, it is the Millennials etc. People complain about how the younger generations won’t work for companies with toxic work environments or expect them to work for free. The younger generations have seen us played as suckers throughout our lives and decided not to be so naive and conformist if not obsequious. Good luck to them because if things don’t change advanced nations will be composed of peons in perpetual servitude to the oligarchy.

We’ll be tuning in tonight. From ABC’s Watchlist:

TV’s power lies in its universality. We watch at home, on the way to work or anywhere else we please. More importantly, we dissect it with one another. Anyone who tells you the water cooler is dead in the streaming age is probably trying to sell you snake oil.

But why do some shows take hold, while others don’t? Succession (Fox Showcase and Binge from Monday) did not begin its life as a hit. An intellectual soap made for premium cable in the US, it was a fairly modest performer that capitalised on the profile of media and political dynasties such as the Murdochs, the Redstones and the Trumps.

Then something happened: Succession transformed from a satire that rendered the rich wholly unlikeable to a three-horse race in which everyone has backed a potential winner.

In the starting lanes – as the show comes off the curve and into the final straight – are the almost-Machiavellian Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong), the smart-mouthed Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin) and the ambitious but sometimes uncertain Shiv Roy (Sarah Snook). At stake is the billion-dollar fortune of their father, Logan Roy (Brian Cox), and control of his company, Waystar RoyCo.

The success of ’80s soap opera Dynasty seemed to be built on the idea that working-class audiences loved watching wealthy families tear themselves apart, as though poverty was some sort of panacea from the torture that would inevitably stem from wealth.

Australian actress Sarah Snook isn’t so sure. “I wonder how many people watch it and go, ‘this is an indictment on too much wealth, too much media control, too much power’, or whether they see it as a family drama and those are just the circumstances,” she told me this week.

Equally compelling is the painstaking detail applied to every episode; Succession is stunning because it feels handmade. And the series will never outlast its welcome, now that creator Jesse Armstrong has declared the upcoming fourth season will be its last.

“That’s the best thing about it. And that’s the discipline of the writers. They know that it’s a finite thing. It’s not infinite,” Brian Cox told me. “A lot of American television wants to be infinite and wants to go on, and some programs go well past their sell-by date. [With Succession] that will never happen.”

So we watch, compelled to the bitter end, as the members of the Roy family carve each other into pieces in pursuit of power, wealth and succession. As Albany said to his father-in-law King Lear in William Shakespeare’s masterwork: “Humanity must perforce prey upon itself, like monsters of the deep.”

There are elements of Greek tragedy in it all, unfolding, as the camera lingers on Logan’s cragged face.

The acting and camera work in the last episode of the previous series, which we watched last night as a refresher, is just superb. In the final series we hope the standard keeps up. It’s compelling to us in a special way, because there are four children inheriting – for Logan Roy has an older son from a previous marriage – who fits the bill for my first generous but off-whack slightly autistic son, Shiv is too close for comfort to our own corporate high flying daughter, Ken is a wheeler and dealer like my second son, whose deals, like Ken’s, never come off, and Roman has the caustic one-liner wit and self-doubting uncertainties of my son with Hairy.

Then there’s Greg – their cousin, always a rabbit in the headlights, monstered by smarmy Tom, Shiv’s sucking up husband, plus there’s Gerry, the corporate legal handmaid and older woman in Roman’s life. Always putting flies in the ointment is Caroline, the aristo British mother of the three, and a lingering figure of mysterious Parisian jet set provenance is Marcia, Logan’s new wife, previously married to a Lebanese arms dealer. Plenty to chow down on for Monday night’s premiere of the final series.

Washington’s chronic disinterest in conflict exit strategies doesn’t bode well for Ukraine

The US has started or inserted itself into multiple wars in recent years – none of which ended in peace and stability

Rachel Marsden is a columnist, political strategist, and host of independently produced talk-shows in French and English.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again today that if coming out of this meeting, there’s some sort of call for a ceasefire, well, that’s just going to be unacceptable,” US National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said on FOX News Sunday referring to the meeting in Moscow between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The truth is that an off-ramp from armed conflict has never really proven to be a desired outcome for Washington.

This is understandable when the US establishment elites seem to have more to gain than to lose from continued conflict in Ukraine. “The Ukrainians have proven that they are a really good investment for the United States,” former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said last December. “They are not asking us to be there to fight their war; they’re fighting it themselves.”

But it’s the US establishment that reaps the benefits of billions of dollars of US taxpayer cash poured into the military-industrial complex under the guise of defense spending for Ukraine.

There’s also the added bonus of having the entire European Union now more dependent on US energy, and its businesses bailing to the US in the wake of Brussels cutting itself off from the cheap Russian energy, on which the continent’s economy was built.

The month of March serves as a convenient reminder that US-led wars don’t have exit strategies, only segues or bridges to even more quagmires. Two such events come to mind that were both started in March of years past, in Iraq and Libya.

The invasion of Iraq was itself just a segue from the invasion of Afghanistan which was set off when a group of Saudis attacked the US homeland on September 11, 2001. But who cares about details. Better to take everyone out that isn’t clearly onside with Washington, just to be sure. While the notion may sound ridiculous, it was the actual basis for a defense policy strategy concocted in 1992 by then undersecretary of defense, Paul Wolfowitz, under Defense Secretary Dick Cheney. It underscored the need to orient US defense actions to “prevent the re-emergence of a new rival” to the US in the wake of the Cold War.

Clark said that in the wake of 9/11, an officer from the Pentagon conveyed to him the contents of a memo from then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s office that indicated the US was “going to attack and destroy the governments in seven countries in five years.” Those countries, Clark said, were Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran – all considered to be client nations of Russia. There was a rush, the general said, to bring them under US control.

So it’s no wonder that there was no real effort to end any recent US-led wars beyond leveraging them to spring-board from one country to another while leaving behind weapons, Western-trained jihadists, and general chaos when the neocons who supported the very idea of it dominate the national security establishment. The fact that all of it risked spilling into neighboring nations at worst just served as a convenient pretext to take out yet another adjacent unsympathetic government or leader.

Who’s to say that the weapons dumped into Ukraine today and US-backed radicals won’t ultimately plague other European nations someday, requiring Washington-style assistance with securing ‘freedom and democracy’?

With Russia expanding its influence globally as a result of helping other countries clean up Western interventionist messes, a new threat to Washington’s global dominance emerged and the Cold War was conveniently rebooted.

This new Cold War is just Washington’s exit strategy from the decreasingly lucrative terrorism war – which is really the only kind of exit strategy it seems to be interested in.

Loading up Ukraine with weapons and training neo-Nazis on the Western border of Russia was only one aspect of a hybrid strategy to frame Russia as the new scarecrow, which also conveniently spawned the emergence of entire new multibillion dollar defense and security industries, like ‘cybersecurity’, to target the ‘Russian threat’.

Western leaders are now talking about the need for a Ukrainian battlefield victory against Russia and denouncing negotiations. Why let peace get in the way of a cash cow? European nations have also started following in Washington’s footsteps in using the Ukraine conflict as a pretext for bolstering their own industrial bases by ramping up weapons production with the help of billions in cash from Brussels.

With Western Europe’s industries suffering from high energy costs, it’s a poor consolation prize for having followed Washington into yet another misguided military adventure.

But the real concern should be for Ukrainians who apparently haven’t grasped the fact that a victory for Washington, in Ukraine or anywhere else, has never meant an exit or end – just the prolongation and continued expansion of chaos.

Mortgage customers showing early signs of stress: NAB

James Eyers and Ayesha de Kretser

Mortgage borrowers are starting to show the first signs of strain, as the effect of ten consecutive interest rate rises compounds growing cost of living pressures, forcing banks to proactively call customers who are at risk of getting into trouble on their repayments.

Ahead of The Australian Financial Review Banking Summit on Tuesday, National Australia Bank’s head of retail banking, Rachel Slade, said the number of customers reporting financial difficulties is “just starting to tick up”.

“We are hearing it: a subset of customers is starting to feel the pinch, and are getting more worried about their financial future,” Ms Slade told the Financial Review ahead of her appearance at the event in Sydney.

“We are not seeing spikes in arrears at the moment, but it is easy to look at averages in portfolios. We have to get down to the individual customer and look at the edges for the customers we have to get to first.”

The early signs of mortgage stress come as analysts remain cautious about the risk of bad debts growing and as global regulators tighten supervision of bank capital ratios after weeks of global banking turmoil. Growing concerns about Deutsche Bank over the weekend follow the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank and forced takeover of Credit Suisse.

This has raised questions about whether Australian banks might be offered leniency if they need to offset pressures for struggling customers with policies such as repayment deferral – as they did during the COVID-19 pandemic – or whether higher costs will be forced onto shareholders.

According to NAB’s Consumer Stress Index for the first quarter of calendar 2023, which has not yet been published, customer stress has risen for the fifth consecutive quarter, although it remains below the average for the past ten years as customers are given some comfort from the low unemployment rate.

Since May last year, the RBA has pushed the official cash rate from 0.1 per cent to 3.6 per cent, taking total annual repayments on a $500,000 mortgage up by $11,800 a year – and almost $17,700 annually for a $750,000 loan.

Customers are also facing higher grocery bills and stubbornly high petrol prices. Average prices for food at Coles and Woolworths rose 8.8 per cent in February, after a 9 per cent print in January, according to UBS.

NAB’s survey also pointed to growing disparities between younger and older Australians. For the fourth quarter of 2022, it found financial hardship remains most widespread in the 18-29 age group and increased steeply to 57 per cent from 45 per cent in the third quarter. Hardship also rose in the 30-49 age group but was unchanged for those aged 50-64 and over 65.

There are also signs of stress in personal lending. Around 1-in-20 customers experiencing hardship told NAB it was caused by being unable to meet minimum credit card repayments or not having enough to pay off personal loans.

The fibro shack with a backyard dunny worth more than $2 million

Long-time owners of traditional beach shacks are facing hefty land tax bills because nostalgic Sydneysiders with cash to burn have pushed up property prices.

Barry Spooner still remembers digging the dunny behind his family’s fibro shack in Bendalong on the NSW South Coast.

His mother, Mabel Jane, won the right to buy the block of land for £200 (about $400) in a lottery in 1959 on the proviso that she develop it, not a hard ask for a family of brick-carters from Sydney.

But thanks to a COVID-related property boom in regional areas, the NSW valuer-general now says the land on which the shack sits is worth more than $2 million and a hefty land tax bill means Barry’s family may have to part with it.

The Spooners were sent their first bill for $1200 last year. They paid it without issue, but were shocked to open this year’s assessment and find they owed almost $7000. They fear next year’s bill will be more than $16,000, as the taxable value of land is based on a three-year average.

University of Sydney housing economist Cameron Murray said land tax was an effective way to manage the property market.

“The point of it is to piss off property owners, so they do something productive [with their land]. It punishes you for not using your property as productively as possible,” Murray said.

“If you can’t afford [the tax bill], you sell … That’s a great choice – I’d love to be having that dilemma.”

We should totally be importing food from a shithole that routinely adulterates and falsifies its products.
https://www.theguardian.com/food/2023/mar/26/uk-honey-fails-authenticity-test

The report last Thursday by the JRC said honey imported from the UK had a suspicion rate of 100% and “this could be the result of honey produced in other countries and further processed in the UK before its re-export to the EU”.

In 2022, the UK imported more than 38,000 tonnes of honey from its biggest supplier, China, where there is a known risk of adulteration with sugar syrup. Country of origin labelling is not required for a blended product from more than one country, so many shoppers don’t know a cheap pot of honey probably originated in China.

A neat sidestep around regulations – import the 99% syrup from china, blend with 5% Pom honey and its origin is disguised for sale into the EU/export & local markets.

Leaving Mad Kean aside, no man who seriously values time with his young family should be in politics, which is all consuming, including weeknights and weekends.

Might have been his family’s idea to steer him toward a career that kept him out of the house. Greens are such killjoys and having one in the house with children always a bad idea. You know, kid’s imagination about driving a race car or fighting monsters in rocketships or shooting bad guys. Only to be tut-tutted by a smug condescending charisma-singularity trying to convince you it is more exciting to imagine you are a windmill (“Stand outside with your arms out and every time you feel some wind start spinning!”), or pretending that you are a fungus in an old-growth forest, or lying down in front of the clothes trolley when Mum is hanging out the washing because clothes pegs are not sustainable.

Just had a look at the first preference votes in the last federal election. If PHON< UAP< LDP and the many similar minor parties had been one bloc, they would've got around 16% of first preference votes. Likely more, because as a united party they would be way more attractive to jaded Lib voters. The Greens got 12.25% and did well.

There is a future for a new right of centre party, if only they could get together and merge. I doubt it will happen as they seem to hate each other more than they do the Libs or Labor. Point in case, the LDP preferencing Animal Justice ahead of similar parties in the Vic upper house last state election. They did it to (hopefully) improve their chance of a seat even if meant Animal Justice getting a seat as well. It didn't work out for them but it shows how petty they are, and how much they hate similar parties.

I did point out to them that their supporters would rather see PHON or similar get up if the LDP didn't and the last thing their core would want is Animal Justice succeeding. They didn't care, it was all about their chances.
