Joe Hockey’s attempt to minimise flak from a proposed co-payment by limiting it to seven dollars will prove pointless. Around 35% of a budget for each new Government “initiative” is usurped by administration costs and that 35% component rises exponentially with a falling return.
Over the past few days we have had a boatload of supposed asylum seekers supposedly from “India”, but really from “Sri Lanka”, and the people who knew more about it than anyone else were members of the Greens, the ALP and immigration “activist” Ian Rintool... now I am as cranky as all hell!

I don’t believe he is in any sense a paedophile. Rolf Harris is just a dirty old man. He is a talented octogenarian from another age where girls learnt to fend for themselves. Under the shadow of a despicable Jimmy Savile and in a climate of paedophile purges, he was always a gonner.
Campbell Newman’s leap from Mayor to Premier was an indication of the LNP’s shallow talent pool rather than an indication of Newman’s ability.
While we watch Wimbledon tonight, members of the ISIS will be stopping vehicles on the road to Mosul to determine if the occupants are Sunni or Shia.
