There is no river here nor are there water lilies, so I can’t “tirra lirra” as Sir Lancelot sang.

But I can describe the enormous church that is Santiago. Like the lovely and recently desecrated (again) Santa Sophia, it crouches on its mound above the old town. It is huge, Romanesque and completely delightful. Unlike the ancient sister on the Bosphorus, this one is a typical Latin cross. The great censer was not in operation, thankfully. The Beloved’s asthma would be triggered instantly.

Down into the crypt, then up again into the arms of the apostle. From the Christian’s point of view, the next time I’ll be this close to the old saint is side by side in the heavenly choir. Lots of pilgrims from all over the world and we caught up with them and listened to their stories.

After the spiritual, the inner regions needed sustenance. An enormous seafood platter, crab, scallops (naturally), clams, mussels, prawns, langoustines and other good things are now on the inside, along with some excellent Tempranillo wine.

So far you can’t get a dud meal in Spain.

Here’s a bit of the poem to go with Dover’s choice –

She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces thro’ the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
      She look’d down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack’d from side to side;
“The curse is come upon me,” cried
      The Lady of Shalott.

So much for spying her true love.

Starting the week on a :jolly” note that has been circulating for a while:

“THE NUMBERED MEN”
 
“One day while I was driving down the highway in the sun
I sat behind a milk truck just returning from his run.
His sign said “Licensed Vendor” and it made me feel secure
That only numbered milkmen could come knocking on my door.
*********
Then I saw a licensed builder with his number on the door
And a plumber with a permit which was issued by the law.
Then a hawker and publican each with his licence plate
And a licensed money lender with his number on the gate.
*********
I pulled into a café, which was licensed to sell beer
And struck up conversation with a licensed auctioneer.
He’d just been selling forfeit goods to pay the fines imposed
On a maverick hardware dealer whose late trading he’d exposed.
*********
A warm glow spread inside me as I drank a licensed beer
And I pictured the inspectors who called in every year
To check upon the numbered men and safeguard fools like me
Who’d waste their money buying things from men who paid no fee.
*********
I thought of all the union men whose cards protect their job
And dairy men whose quota scheme defends them from the mob.
The teachers who are registered, the chemists with their guilds
And lawyers with their closed cartel which keeps their coffers filled.
*********
As I sat among the numbered men it suddenly occurred
That I was just a cleanskin in a tamed and numbered herd.
Somehow I’d missed the muster when the planner combed the land
And now I was a maverick, a man without a brand.
*********
The numbered men live sheltered lives, their keeper is the State,
Their job depends less on their skills than on their licence plate.
Their future is determined and their charges are prescribed,
And the standards of their conduct are in rules and acts described.
*********
But thank the Lord for mavericks, who don’t fit in the mould,
They help distract the licence-men from getting far too bold.
Without the help of mavericks, the planners would persist
Till we all need applications for a licence to exist.”

Andrew Bolt:

Nothing Penny Wong does in the rest of her political life will wipe out the disgrace of voting in the United Nations last week to reward Hamas mass-murderers and rapists.

Australians should weep in shame.

No decision by any Australian foreign minister in my life has been so disgusting, dishonest, incoherent and wilfully blind to evil. Wong has betrayed not just Israel but Australia’s values.

Yes, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese should share this guilt, but, alas, he’s just Wong’s doormat.

On Saturday, our time, Wong had Australia vote with other nations to ask the UN’s Security Council to accept Palestine as a full member of the UN, just seven months after Hamas terrorists invaded Israel and massacred 1200 people, raped women, beheaded men, shot children and took 253 hostages, half of whom are still captive, dead or alive.

The timing alone tells you – and terrorists – everything. Hamas can pack-rape Jewish women, and sexually mutilate and shoot them – kill their whole families – and Wong will then help their cause.

Former prime ministers are stunned. Scott Morrison calls this vote “the most hostile policy act of an Australian government to the state of Israel”. Tony Abbott says it “looks like rewarding the October 7 atrocity”.

But hear Wong now, pathetically trying to hide exactly what she’s done.

No, no, our foreign minister protested on Saturday, her vote to recognise Palestine was “the opposite of what Hamas wants’’. She says it’s a move towards a two-state solution Hamas opposes – for Israel and Palestine to exist side-by-side.

What a liar, or a fool.

In fact, Hamas had already contradicted Wong. It welcomed the vote, calling it “an acknowledgment on the necessity for our Palestinian people to obtain their legitimate rights and an affirmation of the international rally around our people.”

Yes, the Hamas rapists and baby-murderers think our vote is proof that we “rally” to their cause. The shame!

Wong is right on one thing, but it just shows how wrong she is.

Hamas indeed doesn’t want Israel to exist. It wants it destroyed, and has called for a genocide of the Jews.

So who exactly does Wong think will run her “Palestine” and represent it in the UN in her “pathway to a peace” and a “two-state solution”?

There are just two options.

One is the Palestinian Liberation Organisation that right now controls the Palestinian Authority which runs the West Bank, giving it observer status at the UN.

The other is Hamas, which runs Gaza, the other Palestinian territory.

But – plot twist! – both actually want democratic Israel wiped out.

The PLO is the terrorist organisation long run by Yasser Arafat and now by Mahmoud Abbas, who was elected the Palestinian Authority’s president in 2005 and has banned any election since for fear Hamas would beat him after already taking over Gaza at gunpoint.

True, the PLO has said in English it will recognise Israel, but Wong seems to overlook that it never made good its promise to remove from its official covenant, in Arabic, its demands that Israel be destroyed.

The PLO’s covenant still insists Israel is “entirely illegal”, and “armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine”. Indeed, the Palestinian Authority today pays more than $400m a year to terrorists and their families under its “pay for slay” policy.

Hamas, easily beating the PLO in Palestinian opinion polls, is even more hard line.

It demands the “death” of Israel. In 2021, its leader Yahyah Al-Sinwar called for “the full liberation of Palestine from the sea to the river”.

In support of its Jew-hatred, it’s quoted a verse from Islam’s sacred Hadith: “Then the rocks and tree would call: oh Muslim, oh servant of God! There is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

So which one does Wong think will represent the Palestine state she wants created and accepted into the UN? Which bunch of Jew-hating terrorists does she prefer?

But I must add one more example of Wong’s dishonesty and cynicism.

The UN’s own charter – article 4 (1) – says “membership in the United Nations is open to all peace-loving states which accept the obligations contained in the Charter”. Which half of terrorist-led Palestine does Wong believe is “peace-loving”, and therefore qualified to join the UN?

Nothing Wong says to excuse this vote makes sense. It’s clear Labor is just desperate to appease Australian’s 800,000 Muslims, most packed into Labor seats.

But the price of that appeasement now includes encouraging terrorists. What next?

It’s like our elected betters are engaged in a race to the bottom with their antics that are trashing Australia. Your lot monty, fetid turds one and all.

@LauraLoomer

EXCLUSIVE:

New Jersey Democrat Congresswoman @MikieSherrill, who told President Trump to “go back to court” in New York City (where he’s on trial under Judge Merchan) yesterday while he was having a MASSIVE rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, is a CLIENT of Judge Merchan’s daughter, Loren Merchan, who is the President of the Democrat Political Consulting firm “Authentic Campaigns” @Authentic_HQ.

This is evidence of a Democrat elected official in Congress using President Trump’s trial under Judge Merchan as a form of social media content which directly financially benefits the Judge’s daughter since @MikieSherrill is paying Loren Merchan for “digital consulting”, which includes social media management for the clients of Authentic Campaigns.

Over the last 9 months, @MikieSherrill has paid Judge Merchan’s daughter’s company Authentic Campaigns over $216,793.98

This is another example of yet ANOTHER conflict of interest and another reason why Judge Merchan should recuse himself from President Trump’s trial in NYC.

This is ELECTION INTERFERENCE of the highest order, and it’s being carried out via malicious and unconstitutional gag orders and shady high dollar payments to a Judge’s daughter under the guise of “political digital consulting”.

It’s worth noting how large the payments are by elected Democrats to Authentic Campaigns for their “services”. These rates are considered to be EXTREMELY high for “digital consulting” to a single vendor, and really reiterates the need for an independent @HouseGOP investigation into Authentic Campaigns and their bank records.

Donald Trump has been gagged and threatened with arrest by Judge Merchan, all while Judge Merchan’s daughter’s clients are using her father’s position as the NY judge overseeing Trump’s trial as a way to attack President Trump online, which then turns into payments for the judge’s daughter, Loren Merchan who bills this service as “digital consulting” to her Democrat, anti-Trump clientele, which also includes the Biden-Harris campaign, the Democrat Senate Majority PAC, and @RepAdamSchiff, among many other high profile Democrats.

It seems the political classes are congenitally unable to face reality. If a group of people commit murder, they are put away, usually for a very long time. If a large group of people do the same thing, they are deemed ‘freedom fighters’, and hailed and praised by the political glitterati and their hangers-on. As President Biden might say, think about it.

The Russians simply walked in, Ukrainian troops in Kharkiv tell BBC
Denys Yaroslavskyi is angry.

As the Commander of a Ukrainian Special Reconnaissance Unit, he fought in Ukraine’s surprise offensive in Kharkiv in the autumn of 2022, which pushed back an initial Russian invasion all the way back to the border.

But now Denys and his men are facing the prospect of doing the same all over again.

Russian forces have, in recent days, made small but significant gains right along the border in the Kharkiv region.

Their advances are only a few miles deep but have swallowed up around 100km (62 miles) of Ukrainian territory. In the more heavily defended east of Ukraine, it’s taken Russia months to achieve the same.

Denys wants to know what happened to Ukraine’s defences.

“There was no first line of defence. We saw it. The Russians just walked in. They just walked in, without any mined fields” he says.

Despite the United States voting against the resolution, and the United Kingdom abstaining, the foreign minister stressed Australia was not an outlier in its position.

“Much of our region and many of our partners also voted yes, including our ally New Zealand, our special and strategic partner Japan, our comprehensive strategic partners Indonesia, Singapore and the Republic of Korea,” she said.

All of which special, comprehensive strategic partners have Jewish populations measured in hundreds – in most cases foreigners resident.

None of which special, comprehensive strategic partners contribute greatly to Australia’s strategic and defence interests.

Pope Francis: We Need More Children; There’s ‘No Shortage of Dogs and Cats’ (11 May)

ROME — Pope Francis lamented the West’s continued demographic decline, insisting on Friday that fewer children signals a lack of hope in the future.

Countering “outdated” myths of dangerous overpopulation, the pontiff contended that far from being a problem, human beings are the solution to the world’s difficulties.

The climate tragics all want people to stop having children. But it’s a very welcome thing he is saying. One for mum, one for dad and one for the country someone said once. And brought in a baby bonus, which caused a small boom in births as I recall. Monetary encouragements do work.

Bolt’s column suggests that Wong voted with the murderers and rapists for a few Muslim votes.
I suggest that is a smaller part; the larger motivation is for the approval of the radical left that is ‘her’ party, and her own self-approval.

The job of the Opposition and in fact all decent people should be to have this taken as a litmus test; all the far left are OK with murder and violent rape of innocents by muslims.

As an indicator of the slow creep of Islam I just past a bunch of Muz praying on the grass in a park. A few years ago they would never have done that. Now it is a demonstration of faith. Combined with the new signage hamas flags going up in houses. Sorry, in my experience, I don’t see this ending well.

No, it’s a step in the continuum that Islam has the right to arrogate to itself public space and deny it to others.
It’s like the occupation of public roadways for prayers (or green protests) – it is done to humiliate others, and to create a situation where they can loudly proclaim victimhood, while being the aggressors.
Many many ways this is done – refusing to give over a public park to a booked soccer game, demands of special days in public swimming places, deciding to have your prayer mat out in a busy embarkation platform.
The only way to deal with this is to reoccupy the public spaces – violently if need be.
But expect a long hard fight because they’ve used this tactic for 1400 years and well meaning fool/cowards have ALWAYS backed down.

From the old thread.

You have to ask: what does Russia gains by engaging in acts of sabotage in Europe that could possibly allow NATO to actively enter the war, particularly now as the tide appears to turn against Ukraine?

Maybe they’ve just had a gutful of West and its moral corruption and duplicitous governments that appear to be on a 100 year “Kick Russian Arse Campaign.”
Maybe they’d like to point out that there’s a price to pay if the West doesn’t embark on a policy of “Live and Let Live.”
The fact that each of them have have been meddling in each others affairs for decades, and playing “The Great Game”, doesn’t enter into the picture.
The pair are sitting on a pile of gunpowder, shooting flares at each other, and each thinking they can contain the conflagration.

This is guy is a genuine fuktard. Even NASA (and the CSIRO) concedes the planet is greening:

NASA Satellite Data Support ‘Shockingly Large’ Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Effect: Study – NTD CANADA

World food production has increased every year for over a decade. More people are living better lives. And it is a fact that wildlife have a better chance with modern economies which run on energy dense sources such as fossils and nuclear. Primitive societies which burn wood destroy wildlife. The 3rd nations are a classic example; they destroyed the Mega Fauna, the biggest man made animal extinction ever:

Survey of dealerships finds that majority are doubtful about the future of electric vehicles (11 May)

A survey of managers and executives at dealerships finds that 65% say they are pessimistic about the future of electric vehicles

CDK Global, a research firm specializing in data for dealerships, surveyed 250 dealership managers and executives and found that 29% were very pessimistic about the future of EVs. A third of them said their customers simply aren’t interested in the technology.

Dealers are the people fronting the punters, and the punters just aren’t coming in. This story comes a single day after GM went all in on Gaia golf carts but Ford backed away from the precipice slowly and carefully. The dynamics are interesting.

I suspect both companies are going to go bankrupt.

Dawson wanted to have it all: Judge
Claire Harvey
Justice Christina Adamson has asked the public defender representing Chris Dawson about Dawson’s motive to murder Lyn, given his desire to keep the children and the house, as well as his obsession with teenager JC.
Belinda Rigg told the court JC never indicated the reason she wanted to end the relationship was because Dawson was married.
“So it’s not as though she had ever expressed to the applicant a view, or care, that Ms Dawson was an impediment or the reason for her disinclination to continue with the relationship,” Ms Rigg said.
Justice Christina Adamson said: “Nonetheless, the applicant, from his point of view, wanted to keep the children, wanted to keep the house and wanted to keep JC, and one way of doing that would be to murder his wife.”
Ms Rigg said Dawson didn’t necessarily murder his wife despite those factors.
“Despite his love for his children, it was only two weeks earlier that he’d been prepared to leave them and leave the house,” Ms Rigg said.
“He had demonstrated himself to not particularly care about financial consequences,” Ms Rigg said.
Justice Adamson said: “But his brother, who was a solicitor, said if you leave that house you might jeopardise your financial interest in that house, and he explained that the pre-Christmas departure (when Dawson went to Queensland with JC) was impulsive because he was so desperate to be with JC.”
Ms Rigg said: “There was obviously a financial impact upon the applicant potentially in leaving the house and leaving his wife in the circumstances that he had, but it wasn’t something he’d shown himself to be overly troubled by in the circumstances.”

However, another hearing is set to be held on Wednesday.

… and now I’m awake, for how long is ‘our’ ABC going to continue its attempt to socially reconstruct Australian society by forcing aboriginal interpretations of the names of our major cities? For God’s sake, you can’t even find the bloody places on a standard NRMA road map!

There is no basis for changing the name of Sydney to an Aboriginal name as there was no Sydney before the First Fleet turned up. Same goes for every major City, other cities and every town/village that was not here before then.

Change other place names such as Ayers Rock if need be (no need really) and maybe those on Native Title land.

It’s all a load of BS IMHO.

“A better policy would have been to adjust the income tax regime to encourage working families to have more children and allow mothers to stay at home to care for them if they wished.”

It has been mooted from time to time for decades.
It’s called “income splitting”. But it’s not available to families where one is the breadwinner and the other stays at home to give the best care for kids. That would be the mother.
Women have been sold a crock ever since the bad old days of the 1970s, when we “mere males” were demonised day in day out as “male chauvinist pigs” and women who stayed at home were told they were tied to the sink by their apron strings and were of less value to society and to their own self respect for doing so.

Was listening to something on Twitter.

Now, as you’re reading this keep in mind that the 9th Circuit is famously left leaning liberal, which means that they would go with anything the tribe would support and support for the right to posses guns isn’t one of them.

Keep that in mind and now read this.

In U.S. v. Duarte, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals found a law prohibiting some criminals from owning firearms violated the Second Amendment. The ruling overturned a district court judgement making it illegal for people to possess guns if they were convicted of a crime punishable by more than a year in prison.

Suddenly, a leftwing court found the Second Amendment. But why?

Some pundits are suggesting the reason is that Bunter Hiden is up on gun charges and it’s a way of clearing him of wrong doing. In the past I would’ve said, naaaa, that can’t be, but not anymore.

Duty of care in war.
While attempting to declutter, I’ve stumbled upon the following in Commando, the official newsletter of the Commando Association of Victoria* Vol. 11, No. 79, Sept. 2011.

The author is a Tim McCormack, then Professor of Law at Melbourne Uni. First published in The Age, 25 May, 2011).

The chief judge advocate’s decision to dismiss the charges in last week’s pre-trial hearing restores the orthodoxy.

Negligence has never been an acceptable fault element for the perpetration of a war crime. At the International Criminal Court in The Hague, for example, the minimum requirements are intention or recklessness.

But our military prosecutor claimed that these two soldiers owed a duty of care to the civilians in the compound in Afghanistan [my bolding]. Despite the fact that the ADF contingent was subjected to sustained bursts from an AK-47 within the compound, the prosecutor insisted that the two ADF members demonstrably breached the alleged duty of care.

The chief judge advocate thought otherwise. In a meticulously reasoned decision, Westwood found that Australian law does not impose an enforceable duty of care on ADF members in the context of combat operations.

The incident referred to above took place in Oruzgan Province on the 12th of February, 2009. One adult and five children were killed when a grenade was launched into a room from where small arms fire had emanated, threatening the Australians outside.

This also begs the question re Israel & h@m@s: Legally, which combatant has the duty of care regarding civilians? If Israel has a legal as well as moral duty of care for the civilians in Gaza, did h@m@s not have a similar duty of care towards Israeli civilians on the 7th of October, 2023, which they grievously breached?

* Lest a provocateur seek attention, I have never served, nor have I ever claimed to. My interest comes from a military history perspective, and the fact that one of my ancestors was a WWII independent company/cav cdo man.

Children were forced to evacuate the pool still in their swimmers after smoke was seen billowing from the roof just after midday.

He said while it was believed the solar panels were the cause of the fire, there could be a number of reasons why they ignited.

Dear Robert, 
In Canberra tomorrow, I’m going to talk at Family First’s ACT gathering about Sophie Scholl.
In 1942 at the tender age of 22 she went to the guillotine with her brother Hans for her role in distributing anti-Nazi flyers at university.
If we had good leaders in Australia, the anti-Jewish protestors occupying our university quadrangles would be told to do some reading about the Scholl’s White Rose Society and the true nature of evil.
comment image?1715309974
“Finally someone has to make start,” Sophie said before she was executed.
“We only said and wrote what many people think. They just don’t dare to express it.”
While not quite facing the horrors of Nazism, we nonetheless face a renewed totalitarian impulse from our elites which makes Sophie’s words resonate today.
Whether it’s the uncontested demonisation of Israel or the trashing of the family, faith, marriage, life and freedom values you and I hold dear, Australian politics lacks leadership to push back and speak up.
Someone has to make a start.
That’s why Family First is on a war footing as volunteer teams prepare for October elections in Queensland, the ACT and federally.
A Federal election could be as early as August or as late as May.
Your candidates on ballot papers can be beacons of hope, amid the dearth of moral leadership.
Victorian lead Senate candidate Bernie Finn is already campaigning hard – click here to see his schedule of public meetings.
And Family First’s Federal Executive this week asked me to lead the Senate ticket in New South Wales. Announcements for Senate candidates in other states will follow.
To succeed in getting elected to the Senate, Bernie and I need lower house candidates to run with us to lift the Senate vote.
While we welcome people with time to campaign, even a minimal effort on your part is incredibly helpful. Simply getting Family First on ballot papers is key.
Getting elected will be hard, but we must make a start. Waiting for someone else to step up is not an option.
If you’d like more information about standing as a candidate, please contact the following volunteers:

 
Supporting Israel
Family First stands firmly on the side of Israel in its war with the evil Hamas terrorist organisation.
I encourage all Victorian supporters and members to join with Jane and Bernie in showing solidarity with our Jewish community by attending the Never Again is Now rally on May 19.
This week on ADH TV, I conducted an extended interview with Dr David Adler of the Australian Jewish Association. He dispels myths about civilian causalities and other Hamas propaganda that has been bought by our government and media.

China Credit Shrinks for First Time, Loan Growth Disappoints

Credit contracts as government bonds record net repayment

Shadow banking credit shrinks in sign of risk prevention: JLL

By Bloomberg News

May 11, 2024 at 7:25 PM GMT+10

Updated on

May 12, 2024 at 10:39 AM GMT+10

China’s credit in April shrank for the first time as government bond sales slowed, while loan expansion was worse than expected in a sign of weak demand.

Aggregate financing, a broad measure of credit, decreased by almost 200 billion yuan ($27.7 billion) in April from the previous month, according to Bloomberg calculations of data released by the People’s Bank of China on Saturday. That’s the first time the measure has declined since comparable data began in 2017, reflecting a contraction in financing activity.

Credit contraction is very ungood, signaling there’s a problem. It could be coming out of the besieged real estate sector though.
They’re partially trying to export their way out problems, but I think this isn’t going to work as the barriers will go up. Hiden is talking about raising 100% tariffs on Chinese EV sales and I’m sure the Euros are that far behind.

Accused Islamic State terrorist Neil Prakash faces court
By john ferguson

  • Associate Editor
  • 3:35PM May 13, 2024

The man accused of being one of the nation’s most feared terrorists made a rare court appearance on Monday that ended abruptly when he turned his back on the video camera and knocked on the door of a prison witness room.
Neil Prakash, 31, was extradited from Turkey to Darwin in December 2022 and has been charged by the Victorian Joint Counter Terrorism Team with six terrorism-related offences following his time allegedly with Islamic State.
Prakash has rarely been seen in years, appearing via video link before the Melbourne Magistrates Court, wearing a white Islamic prayer cap with a black band.
He closed his eyes several times over a period of about 20 minutes before magistrate Rohan Lawrence ruled that the accused could be absent from proceedings until, or unless, he is committed to stand trial.
The charges include being an alleged member of a terrorist organisation, of advocating for terrorism and engaging in hostile activities overseas.

Prakash was raised in Melbourne and became a high profile international figure during the rise and decline of Islamic State.
Prakash has previously refused to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court.
The court heard that Prakash had become radicalised more than a decade ago after attending the now closed al-Furqan Islamic Centre in Melbourne’s Springvale.
A former senior journalist with The Australian, Paul Maley, also gave evidence about a series of communications he said he had with Prakash that led to prominent articles published nearly a decade ago.
Mr Maley outlined how he had received a series of threats while reporting on Islamic State during the worst of the Middle East crisis.
He was questioned at length by defence lawyer Liz Morgan about what records he had kept of exchanges with Prakash, what communications platforms had been used, including twitter and encrypted services.
Two former friends of Prakash gave evidence about his alleged path to radicalisation.
The Australian has previously reported that Prakash’s citizenship was revoked in 2018 by former Home Affairs minister Peter Dutton.
However, it was reinstated after a High Court finding that the laws used to strip him of his citizenship were unconstitutional.

This is another P.O.S. who should be given a fair trial, then shot.

China seems to be settling into an indefinite period of deflation.

They really have a problem, particular because it’s a controlled exchange rate. If the exchange rate was a free float, they could at least say that a fall in the price of the Yuan was market determined and there’s not much they could do. See the Japan/ Yen as an example.

If they begin to depreciate the Yuan in any meaningful way there’s going to be an almighty squeal from the Americans and the Europeans.

On the “rose tree” perfectly possible. It’s just a matter of finding suitable rootstock (usually Rosa centifolia) and grafting material into the cambium layer.

Commercially, it’s done using slim wand-like canes (pencil thickness), but in the video they’re using quite old, heavy bases. The most common types of grafting material on such tall standards are usually the “weeping” varieties. These guys use upright forms and plenty of them to create a large base at the grafting point.

Watch the Western Quislings suck up to Iran in the hopes of not being the first to have the nuclear egg laid on their porch.
And when it does (probably) get laid on Tel Aviv, either by aircraft, rocket, or donkey cart, the Mullahs will tell the Quislings that they have two more emplaced in London and Washington.

And if teams can work differently, it’s clear that where work happens doesn’t matter. That’s the missing insight that a lot of CEOs don’t have today.”

Ms Dean’s boss, Atlassian co-founder and co-CEO Mike Cannon-Brookes, says remote arrange­ments work if people “don’t hire idiots” and those employees are managed well. He said some of return to office mandates stem more from commercial real estate decisions, rather than what’s better for the companies, raising the question of what problem they’re really trying to solve.

Ms Dean said Atlassian focused on giving employees choice, including providing office space to ensure they remained productive and generated their best work.

“We have spent a lot of time making sure that we have an ­efficient real estate portfolio and that those real estate offerings or office offerings are compelling, that people want to come to them – they’re healthy, they’re vibrant,” she said.

“And people are coming to the office. Eighty per cent of people are coming every quarter despite the fact that 40 per cent of people at the company can’t easily access an office. So it’s impressive that people feel drawn to and excited about coming to visit as opposed to being mandated to be there.”

An under-performing hire is an “idiot” working in the office or at home. It doesn’t change a thing.

Earlier, from a tropical ulcer-infected retired nurse::

The only way to deal with this is to reoccupy the public spaces – violently if need be.

Me:

Obviously, retired residents of small Quenthland towns will be leading the way here.

The retort:

Fairly standard reply from the peanut gallery.

So what’s your excuse for doing Jack Shit? And don’t avoid the question – what have you done apart from sneering at everyone else who offers a suggestion?

Thanks, Faulty.

This concept, it hardly needs to be said, has been rightly pilloried for quite some time.

If one is to advocate for violently overthrowing governments/kicking out Muslims from praying in public/storming the nearest Chemtrail Inc office and burning it to the ground, one should at least be in a position to actually lead the charge, rather than yelling about it from the couch.

You are, in fact, the peanut gallery you complain about.

If you are not prepared to do that, then gobbing off about it (Rise Up! Stand, Fight and if necessary Fall!) will inevitably generate further justified ridicule.

And in answer to your question – I will do something about Muslims praying in public as soon as you do. And it wasn’t a ‘suggestion’ you made, it was a statement.

Of course, if some of those people end up in hospital and desperately ill, I will be right behind you as you sneak into their rooms and pull the plug on the BingBong machine.

Political staffers in NSW would get a pay rise of up to 30 per cent under an bold wage claim by parliamentary bureaucrats.

A reminder, if I may.
Charlise Mutten’s murderer was in court today.
We all know that the turd shot her. Evidence in court today, shows that, there is no way the turd can claim “it was an accident”.
The first shot “may” have been because of malicious, junkie stupidity.
The second shot was to stop her from ever being able to point the finger.

She suffered two gunshot wounds, entering the right side of her face with a projectile in her head, and a shot to the left lower back,’ Mr McKay told the panel.”

The grammar, if this is how it was recorded in court, is shocking.

Sir John Monash was a proud Jew and a proud Zionist.

My grandfather loved and adored the following….his wife, his children, his grandchildren, his kelpie, Sir James Cook and Sir John Monash.

I feel so ashamed of this country now, we have sunk so low.

I love this story about a young John Monash….

John Monash was brought up bilingually (but never acquired any Yiddish); his parents spoke good English. For three years he attended St Stephen’s Church of England School, Richmond. His father had suffered ‘terrible losses’ and was never again to be well off. He opened a store at Jerilderie, New South Wales. It is reputed that around this time Ned Kelly and his compatriots rode up from Victoria to trade horses with John’s dad Louis. And that John actually met Ned.”

Who knows, but it’s a good story!

Double standards news (the Tele):

A “highly decorated” military man has suffered a fall from grace after several subordinates spotted him being “intimate” with a superior in a Hawaiian hotel spa, a court has heard.

Darren Kevin Cox, a flight sergeant in the Royal Australian Air Force, was fined $1000 in the Defence Force Magistrates Court on Monday after he pleaded guilty to prejudicial conduct.

So far, so good:

Reading from an agreed statement of facts, prosecutor Lachlan Ellis told the court the offence had occurred while Cox, 51, was on a deployment to Hawaii in November 2022.

Major Ellis said Cox had become “mildly intoxicated” after drinking rum and Coke while socialising with other members of his squadron in an outdoor spa at their hotel in Waikiki.

Five subordinates and an Australian Defence Force contractor were all in the spa when the court heard a female flight lieutenant was seen “hovering” over Cox’s lap and giggling.

The court heard the “flirtatious” pair were then spotted touching each other underwater in the corner of the spa.

And:

Cox’s defending officer, Wing Commander Jodi Mather, stressed that there had been no allegation of sexual misconduct and the incident had involved “two consenting adults”.

Wing Commander Mather told the court Cox had not invited his superior to “hover” over his lap at the beginning of the incident, but he had not deflected her advances.

Just wondering where the sanction is for the chicky flight lieutenant.

PwC ‘not liable’ for alleged rape of graduate employee

PwC says it is not liable for harm caused to a graduate employee who says she was raped by her boss after getting drunk with colleagues following a company gathering, saying the woman’s alcohol intake and the alleged sexual assault were “not connected” to her employment with the firm.

The rape allegedly occurred a month after her boss forced her to put her hand on his erect penis and kissed her neck while on a dance floor at a Sydney pub after an end of financial year party.

The firm also claims it should not be found at fault because the alleged perpetrator had engaged in a mandatory “sexual harassment and victimisation in the workplace” training module in the year prior to the alleged rape.

The most embarrassing thing I did at a Christmas party, that I’ll never forget, was congratulating a woman for being pregnant. She wasn’t. She was overweight.

‘Settler colonists’: Leading Palestinian activist slams Australia, IsraelTricia Rivera
Australian Palestine Advocacy Network president Nasser Mashni turned up to the rally and made a speech shortly before 8pm.
“We need to be very clear in our minds what our fight is for. We fight together for all of humanity,” Mr Mashni said.
“Palestine, the Palestinians we see there … they are an exemplar of steadfastness, of faith, of dignity.
“These are the tenants of who we are and we should draw our strength from it. It should inform our struggle.
“Our struggle is a just struggle, it’s a just struggle for humanity.”
Mr Mashni said that “settler colonists” such as Israel and “the system here” bomb land.
“Indigenous people don’t do that,” he said.
“Israel and Australia share two things in common, aside from being a sh*thole, racist, settler colony, that’s the number one thing, they also have the highest incidence of skin cancer.
“Their skin is designed for Northern Europe, where there is not much sun so you need to be white so you get extra vitamin D.
“But our skin is designed for this land, it’s designed for the Middle East. Not to say Judaism isn’t connected to the land.”
The rally wrapped up at about 8:15pm.

Yesterday I bought a clam shell with the pilgrim’s mark on it. I am a fraud. But it’s not for me but my brother, who will never get to visit here.

“Higher rate of biological aging”!!!

Cancer Surging in Young People: Experts Ignore the Obvious

It isn’t obvious. It is a very complicated issue. Take Professor Farnsworth seriously: “I knew it, I found the answer on youtube!”

A decades long trend. Not just cancer. CVD, obesity, Diabetes, NAFLD, anxiety, depression, all spiking. Diet certainly is an issue, even with anxiety and depression there is good evidence for that. What isn’t obvious is why are so many chronic diseases occurring at younger ages? Why specific types of cancer? For example:

A study by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital reveals that the incidence of early onset cancers — including breast, colon, esophagus, kidney, liver, and pancreas — has dramatically increased around the world, with the rise beginning around 1990.

I even read a report a few days ago of higher rates At Fib in people under 65, arrhythmias are risk factors for stroke and heart failure. Yesterday a report about a surge younger onset colorectal cancer.

This is a paradox for me. It is the age of gym, the age of organic food, the age of health awareness greater than any previous generations yet younger onset of chronic conditions are rising at alarming rates. It is only “obvious” if we ignore all the data.
