MTOW, imo the Greens exist simply because the Democrats do not. People are looking for someone to 'keep the bastards honest'.

Triggs is a different kettle of fish. She has her own agenda, and it gets played in the media simply because it's 'anti-government'. It just so happens that the current government is LNP. I don't think she's anti-Liberal per se, just anti-Liberal policy.

SOPS 29th Jun 2015 08:23

Ans it's not that women's job to have any view on any policy, not publicly at least.
She was put. In there by Labor, who hoped she would be a time bomb for the Libs.

Hempy 29th Jun 2015 08:29

In other words, a good appointment (from the Labor perspective).

Don't think that it doesn't work both ways. That's 'politics'. :ugh:

MTOW 29th Jun 2015 09:02

In the US, all government appointees remain in their jobs only if the new administration wants them. I understand that that vast majority are not wanted by the new administration, as many such jobs are seen as rewards given to those who supported them.

I'm sure many here in Australia would see that as unacceptable, but the Labor habit (which they've done repeatedly) of renewing long term contracts to top jobs with punishing break of contract clauses only months if not weeks before an election is tantamount to an abuse of power and should be stopped.

Relevance? I thought there was a 'Global Warming' thread or two already


















cue the space bar... :ugh:

A bit late, another favoriate of the left, some scientists from Google if I remember correctly came to the same conclusion.

Very relevent, unless your from the side pushing it, and want to restrict information to only the true believers and the already convinced anti side


So how much money has Oz wasted on the global warming nutter faith so far.
Due to the amounts of money on the table, its very relevent to the tax payer of Aus. The vast majority of people may not care enough to follow specific threads, so a bit of extra information to keep them abreast of the situation, so as help form a balanced political view can be most welcome.

Ah, cue the illiterate 'Doctor'. Always with something relevant to say :D

in the same way that narrow minded (or slightly dim) practitioners only see solutions in terms of their own specialty, be it law, yoga, iridology or herbalism, Triggs sees everything through the lens of her precious international treaties on human rights. these treaties are not the same as Australian law, which is why her silly suggestions for compensation are routinely knocked back. Perhaps Flying Lawyer could explain. Triggs is only there because its proper these days to have a human rights commissioner. shes an embarrassment but like the ABC board or Bill Shorten, is hard to sack.

Once again, Triggs has shown her true colours and given the government another reason (not that they really need one) to sack her. She ordered the ANZ Bank to apologise for not hiring a man convicted of a violent armed robbery. He'd applied for a position but failed to disclose his criminal past.

Can any of our huggy fluffies defend Triggs on this decision?


I thought not...

chuboy 29th Jun 2015 23:15

So he was found guilty of robbery and lied about it, and ANZ wouldn't hire him just because of that?

I would have thought he would be a perfect fit for a Big 4 bank to be honest! ;)

The women lives in an alternative reality.

Its always interesting when some one likes to try an attempt at personel attacks. It seems to be a attempt to inflict some sort of pain.

What was it some one said on another thread? Something about it showing more about their character and personality type than the targets!

That's very funny, chuboy.

Stanwell 30th Jun 2015 01:02

rh,
As an impartial observer, may I make a couple of comments?

You do, from time to time, come up with some worthwhile, indeed insightful, posts.
Now, while your command of the written language may not be the best, there's a couple of things
you can do to make it a little less painful for those of us trying to work out what you are saying.

1. Get your spellcheck sorted as a matter of urgency. (We'll take up a collection if that'll help.)
2. Read your posts before you hit the 'submit' button. (Important)
3. After 2200hrs, think about whether your post might be better left 'til the morning.

Cheers.

He seems to have the pre-requisite qualifications for CFMEU management - a violent past and a poor memory (TURC)

Bankers steal with a keyboard or a pen, this character probably stole with a knife or a firearm.

bosnich71 30th Jun 2015 03:31

Now then,Pinkus, you're being logical and that won't go down too well with some.
Hope I got the too..or should it be to.. correct.If not I' m sure someone will correct me.

bosnich71 30th Jun 2015 03:32

Rh... Don't worry too much about the grammar Nazis most of us know what you're on about.

Worrals in the wilds 30th Jun 2015 04:09

True, Bosnich; you can be unlucky anywhere.

Ken, do I believe that Labor, when they get back in to power, (especially if they have to keep the likes of SHY on side - but even without that factor), will welcome back Sharrouf's family and that there'll be calls, almost certain to be granted, that the children, and perhaps even the wife, be paid compensation?
MTOW, I think that's pretty unfair. Since they lost government Labor have generally been bi-partisan about terrorism related policy, even though it's been at the expense of some left wing support. The boat issue is shaping up as an internal punch-on, but they haven't opposed anti-terrorism measures. Like it or not (I know I don't) the Bali two had quite a bit of community support from people who were sorry for them and/or opposed to the death penalty, and the government wasn't about to risk looking mean. These guys do not have any public support at all, except for a few fellow loony extremists who are equally loathed by the general public.

No one has explained to me yet how it was legal for a 15 year old to get married.
They weren't legally married, were they? Anyone can rustle up a ceremony and get 'married' in a private place, but it doesn't make it legally binding (or any less :yuk: in this instance), so I'm guessing that's what happened :confused:?
The more I hear from/about the grandmother, the susser I get. :suspect::suspect:
