"then find themselves languishing in a Siberian prison, guarded by a Cossack who doesn't GAF."

It's funny watching the fluffies jump up and down over them, getting every gov't to try to put pressure on Russia / Putin who also doesn't GAF and the various Gov'ts knowing full well that interfering in another countries legal process is fraught with danger. And when it comes to Russia, the more they push the likelihood the longer the delays !!!

Be interesting to see if the drilling company prosecute for costs when they had to stop drilling to deal with the interlopers! Back in the late sixties and early seventies it cost US$10,000 a day for a relatively small rig, today ten times that would probably be nearer. These jokers may have to stay in prison until the bill is paid, regardless of any punishment the courts hand down

I couldn't think of a better use of Greenpeaces funds

Gallows ?

Greenpeace like it "au natural" and have you seen the size of the bears in that place ? They are massive.

Drop them near a mother and cubs and leave the rest as Greenpeace likes,
"to nature"



SOPS

So do I

I couldn't believe it when he sent that memo out over how to refer to AS.
That would have made the fluffies have a heart attack

What, with the return of TPVs and that memo, they will be positively exploding at the seams, but there is nothing they can do about it.

And just who the hell funds the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre? Sounds like another huggy fluff thing that needs closing down.

On Politics for a moment, on the Radio the other day I heard the Opposition spokeman for Immigration speaking, the usual 30 second sound bit after the
Minister of Immigration had spoken (his press conference).

So it seems now the Opposition have their places, they are starting to respond
which is good to see.

That does leave the question open of the new method of election of a Labour leader and the delay in getting people into position gives a new Gov't one hell of a leg up by allowing easy time to settle in etc.

Just my HO.


Did anyone read the Article on the Labor Deputy leader, Tanya P ??????.
In the Age and others like SMH.

Worth reading as she is being shown as the shining light for the future.

You have to love Labor. Now out of Gov't but wanting to claim credit for the drop in boat arrivals. They had how many years to fix it ?

"The race to claim credit for the drop in asylum seeker boat arrivals has begun, with both the Coalition and Labor insisting their approach is responsible for slowing the boats.


On Sunday, Labor's immigration spokesman, Richard Marles, and former immigration minister Tony Burke suggested Labor is behind the recent drop in boat arrivals, not the newly elected Coalition government."


Both sides claim credit for slowing boat arrivals

Interesting report on Aussies views re Immigration / AS

Interesting report on Aussies views re Immigration / AS.

The bit quoted below is what quite a few of us have been saying.
It also shows one of the reasons Labor was kicked out.

Australians back immigration but not boat people: Scanlon-Monash Mapping Social Cohesion report

"Eighty-four per cent of people said that multiculturalism has been good for Australia ... in contrast to that, only 18 per cent of people thought that those arriving by boat and claiming asylum should be eligible for permanent residence,” Professor Markus said. “That’s really a characteristic of Australians ... high level of support for immigration, for the humanitarian program, but not for people coming by boat.”"

I reckon Pickering has his finger on the public pulse.

Quick question. Has Mr Bandt been out fighting any fires today, or just sipping lattes and harping on about climate stuff?

Nice to see the UN sticking it's nose in

Clear link between climate change and bushfires: UN adviser warns Tony Abbott

A senior United Nations climate change official says there is ''absolutely'' a link between climate change and bushfires and has warned that the Coalition government will pay a high political and financial price for its decision scrap carbon pricing.


In an interview with CNN's Christine Amanpour on Monday, the head of the UN's climate change negotiations, Christiana Figueres, said there was a clear link between climate change and bushfires such as those raging in New South Wales.

Just a thought, but does anyone on Prune have any data on bushfires in China ?

The UN would ignore it as it doesn't fit their agenda.

Just like they ignore Indonesia because they aren't a signatory re Refugees.

If we have the discussion with the premise that climate change does contribute to bush fires and other extreme weather phenomena then regardless wouldn't a country like Australia acting on it merely be symbolic if the likes of China and India etc. do absolutely nothing about it?

Yes.

Especially when you consider what China spews into the atmosphere on a daily basis reminds me of photos of the Industrial revolution in the UK.
