The problem with business' under thew= Liberal Party is that they're so used to having their cake and eating any form of restriction or regulation is met with howls of protest and cries of socialism. The sooner they're booted and Bill Shorten is PM the better it will be for this country.
Every one knows bill can’t be trusted

It was old bill and Julia who when writing the fairwork act never fixed up the labor hire component hence why we see business exploit it today! Stabbing their ex union buddies in the back in the same time

Basically sums up the state of politics.

Yet if Labour are comforted by this shitshow, they must consider its implications as far as their own performance markers go. Imagine not having a 10-point poll lead over this lot. “Don’t know” (39%) still outpolls both May (36%) and Jeremy Corbyn (23%) as to who would make the best prime minister. This is Groundhog Year. For all their big talk, and their dick-waving, and their self-started fights with minority communities, both parties are exactly where they were a year ago in the poll tracker, even as various doomsday clocks have ticked closer to midnight.

Whether or not they can admit it to themselves, both parties (though Labour more so, being the opposition) are effectively waiting for a crisis to shift the numbers in their favour. No deal, a recession, a welfare system failure – the best hope for moving the polls is one disaster or another befalling the people whom their different forms of ineptitude have already shamefully failed. That is the most likely gamechanger – and a reminder that however atrocious the current state of politics feels, it is still not the darkest timeline. There are much darker ones, and we could easily cross into several of them.

This is amazing.
https://www.theguardian.com/science...cient-greek-discovered-at-bottom-of-black-sea

Archaeologists have found what they believe to be the world’s oldest intact shipwreck at the bottom of the Black Sea where it appears to have lain undisturbed for more than 2,400 years.

The five metre (75ft) vessel, thought to be ancient Greek, was discovered with its mast, rudders and rowing benches all present and correct just over a mile below the surface. A lack of oxygen at that depth preserved it, the researchers said.

I’m guessing you didn’t watch Four Corners tonight.
Is that the documentary where our African friends describe conditions in their youth centres?

Well the Parkville riots ended
When they clubbed the rebels down
And if you're not Caucasian
There is pizza
You can hear the brothers singin'
When Domino's comes around
Four walls, wash basin, garlic bread

Thread is "news of the day". An election is looming and this problem has remained uncontained for nearly three years.
Sure it has. Or more likely, it's a minor problem that's being pushed by a not-independent newspaper pushing it down everyone's throat as an issue because they want their man elected.

It's especially believable to people who think one race is superior to another.

Pity we can't deport these animals. Start with the lawyer who disgracefully implies that the perpetrators are actually victims of racism.

I don't care what colour someone is. If one kicks or punches someone when they are down, 10 year labour camp.

If your standing around and don't help a victim, be it call the police, intervene, provide medical attention, call for help or whatever is deemed appropriate..............just like France a crime has been committed.

Being part of a society has responsibilities.

How do those people not see she killed this man! As if he crashes the same day she requests a will from him. For the very thing that causes his death. Then it says he dies 14 months later the moment he is discharged!!!
Benny, Benny, Benny... it's not uncommon for people to crash their motorcycles when they first get them. There are videos on YouTube of people riding from the dealer's after picking up their new bikes and crashing within 100 metres. New bikes take a bit of getting used to and if this guy was a 'returning rider' then they're right up there in crash statistics. There's nothing in that article that tells me (I currently own 11 motorcycles) foul play was involved.

Is this really where we want to be as Australians? Video, quite a hero!

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-30/video-shows-anti-semitic-road-rage-in-melbourne/10763556

A man has been caught on video making "vile" anti-Semitic remarks to a rabbi during a road rage incident in Melbourne in what a Jewish anti-hate group says is one in a series of similar outbursts against Jews in Australia.
From the passenger seat of a car waiting at traffic lights on North Road in Caulfield, in the city's south-east, the man can be heard saying: "Would you like me to get out and show you what Hitler did?"
The man then called the rabbi a "f**king selfish c***t of a Jew".
