In other news, I see the people on the latest boat arrival have not even docked yet, but they have lawyers already working for them.
Reported on TV news tonight that the free loading libertarian 'Human Rights' gang of lawyers had heard of the boat and, "were trying all means to contact the people on board so that they could seek an injunction to prevent it being turned back" - the perfect fifth column!

Those,like SHY,should take a trip to UK and ask normal people..not Greenies for example,what they think of her efforts in "saving" asylum seekers,AKA as effing free loaders in Britain,she would most definitely be put in her box.The Brits that I've personally spoken to over the past three weeks are sick and tired of the whole immigration/ asylum seeker garbage.

Don was my local MP.

When he initially supported the idea of Ascot Capital closing Jandakot airport and supposedly relocating it to Canning I sent him an angry email, not expecting any response. He was on the phone the next day wanting a meeting. From then on he was a staunch ally and he took a lot of time to listen to airport people, people who lived in the proposed location and fully understand what was going on and oppose the so-called "relocation" and be our voice in Canberra while Mark Vaile as the airport landlord did very little at first.

I had dealings with him on some other federal matters, he was a good man, always avialable to listen and help out, he really stood up for his electorate and got things done. RIP Don.

I don't read Bolt very often but I have seen him write several times of his work for the ALP.
You learn something every day , I never knew that! For the Hawke campaigns, so it says on Wiki. I'm guessing that it wasn't a Fun experience .
At least Bronwyn Bishop has succeeded in uniting us. We all agree its time for her to go.
Everyone except the PM and the lady herself, or so it would seem.

Bardot blasts Australia's plan to slay wild cats
It is times like this when I really despair of the intelligence of some people!

Thay want a sterilisation program rather than a cull now, do they?

I can just imagine a team of appropriately qualified People spending several months camped at Coongie Waterhole (Not the Lakes area!) setting traps to catch and sterilise the Feral Cats I saw there way back in 1982 when I was with a Seismic Survey Crew. (GSI 1847.)

Or the Ferals I saw right out in the middle of nowhere about 60km (?) due west of Cordillo Downs Station in mid `83.

Could someone please explain to me just why anyone even pays attention anymore to anything that sad, old, has-been of an Actress even thinks, let alone says?

Apparently the only thing that went in the 'Honourable' Mr Hockey's favour was the wording of the Twitter post linking the story, the story itself was accurate. Oh well, I'm sure he'll be able to cough up the difference in legal fees. Just one or two more 'Dinners with Joe' should do the trick

Either Joe or his wife will have to sell a few shares, that's all.

New evidence is emerging from a former member of the AWU that suggests Gillard may have been involved in a one million dollar swindle!

Won't be long before at least half the opposition will be sitting in parliament in orange boiler suits and chained to their guards! Can't wait!

You wont get an answer to that question, because he can't provide one. Nothing like changing the angle of the conversation with some unaccountable noise to try and hypnotise the audience.

You are running the Fairfax/ABC spin.

Fairfax was found guilty of defamation and the evidence presented also clearly demonstrated the problem of the media acting as a player rather than a reporter of events. No better than Murdoch in this regard.

Hockey didn't prove his entire claim and Fairfax ran this as them expecting at least 70% of their fees to be paid by Hockey as a result.

In the final wash up, they are paying 15% of his fees instead.

They defamed him and have lost money as a result. The quantum of the damage to reputation and the compensation/costs issue are peripheral debating points.

This isn't the first time pursuing justice has cost the victim more than he receives in compensation.

The cost of accessing our so called Justice system is the reason why many frauds and cheats go unpunished. The cost of pursuing them just ain't affordable.

Actually I'm running the Judiciary's 'spin', but whatever floats your myopic boat.

As usual Hempy, we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Bloody hell! Joe is up for $650k to pay 85% of just his bill? And Fauxfacts will be up for $200k in fines, 100% of their own legal fees and 15% of Joe's legal fees - and Hempy, Fauxfacts and the Left are presenting this as a Fauxfacts victory?

They're going to have to sell an awful lot of SMHs to pay for this.

It brings home how out of control our legal system is. The only people who seem to have the assets to take a case to the High Court are asylum seekers.

A legal system that is unaffordable for 95% of the population isn't a legal system.

And that's the question I keep asking Saltie. Where do the likes of the AS and the chocolate shop looney get the money to go to the high court?

Doesn't Julian Burnside provide his services to asylum seekers gratis? That's what I heard.

I highly doubt the asylum seekers are paying "retail price", so to speak. If they were really that wealthy (as in wealthier than any of us) there would be no need for them to attempt to enter Australia 'illegally' as there is probably a conventional immigration pathway available to them.

And who pays for the time expended by all the court staff? The salary of the judges? And who has his time in court delayed? I'm always amazed how quickly the asylum seeker cases get heard. I understand that for normal people, the delays can run into years.

Just asking
