TIME FOR GRATTAN TO GO

Objectivity and Michelle Grattan were always items of unfamiliarity. She is now pushing 70 and on an ALP mission to degrade Abbott (for punching a wall 35 years ago) while at the same time religiously defending Gillard and her farcical recent Press conference “explaining” the Wilson scandal, with terms like, “...that should now be the end of it.”

Not all of the super-trawler is a trawler, according to the Australian Fisheries Management Authority.


Trawler a pyrrhic victory

Emotive and visibly horrific, this giant trawler was to replace three other trawlers that were collectively confined to exactly the same quota of fish. Not one extra fish was to be caught. Funny thing is the Greens will get exactly what they didn’t want.


NO ADVANTAGE NONSENSE!

The ALP’s “no advantage” assurance for asylum seekers is about as empty an assurance as our “investment pipeline”.


UNIONS CALL FOR SURVEY ON RUDD

The rot has set in and the hounds are baying for blood as two prominent QLD unions call for tenders from polling companies to quantify Rudd’s appeal in marginal seats.
