Pioneers, Builders and Termites

To compete in today’s world we need to score well on resource availability, capital assets, energy costs, tax burden and workforce/management. It also helps to have secure property rights and a sound currency. Today’s Australia scores poorly on all counts.


HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Thanks for a year of interesting, clever and informed comments. A Happy Christmas to all and we’ll give ‘em heaps next year. I am going to take a few days off with my family of 41, sink a few reds and tell a few lies. Thanks again and see y’all real soon, Larry

THE GREENS INFILTRATE NAURU'S SALVOS

... while Honiara becomes the new processing centre

The Government has secretly called for tenders to build a new offshore processing centre in another recipient of substantial Aussie aid, The Solomons, according to an informant.



PENILE PROTECTION


THE GOOSE FINALLY RUNS OUT OF GOLDEN EGGS

Mike Devereux was given three years to turn around Holden’s five years of losses. He was unable to do that, so Detroit’s decision to stop the haemorrhaging, barring further massive government assistance, was actually made over three years ago during the Rudd regime.
