[A prologue to this story is an important one: I have read an extensive, albeit heavily redacted, transcript of police interviews with Kathy. The police appear to have carried out their investigations in a professional and comprehensive manner. It is clear there was not much more they could have done.
I never reply to abuse I receive because I believe it’s your right to express whatever opinion you want. But, as much as I love you guys, in this case, as with Julia Gillard and her attendance at the Royal Commission, many posters missed the point.
After having lived in South Africa I left fearing for its future. Affirmative action was ripping the heart from a tough nation of builders, the ANC was corrupted by its newfound power and white rule had started to appear the lesser of two evils. But the transition from Apartheid is finally working and no better indication of that was the performance of Judge Masipa and her handling of the Pistorius case.
Every Western nation is confused as to why their Muslim youth is flooding to support the Islamic State, yet it’s an easy question that no Western leader will confront. The answer is deeply imbedded in the Muslim psyche. The answer is this, it has been sitting there for 1500 years and will never change:
Stoljar had not done his homework, Galbally should have stayed in bed and Gillard lied through her teeth... but she had her ducks in order. Wilson is still clearly under her spell and other witnesses had changed their evidence overnight to suit Gillard's account of events.
We are told by government-funded climate alarmists that their forecasts of dangerous man-made global warming rely on “settled science”. Their “settled science” represents a mare’s nest of computer models, resting on a few match-sticks of science, surrounded by tall forests of uncertainty
For those who intend to watch a former Prime Minister try to defend the indefensible in the Royal Commission into Unions today here’s a brief précis of what Julia Gillard and her union thug boyfriend, Bruce Wilson were up to.

I too heard the music and saw trailers for “60 Minutes” and was anticipating a Coalition meltdown with Ministers resigning en masse but half way through the program, which was entirely given over to the Ashby/Slipper saga, it was time for a cup of tea, we had heard it all before.
Australia - my Australia - is a place where I grew up embracing multiculturalism. I knew nothing else. A baby-boomer and all my mates at primary school were New Australians, as we called them then. Their parents had fled a war torn Europe to a country that was as far from their shell-shocked motherlands as it was possible to be.
I have never checked my Aussie smoked salmon for that rotten little Arab sign denoting halal certification. But there it was, that little circled bit of calligraphy (which probably says ‘sucked in’) was on my Tassel Tasmanian smoked salmon. I mean seriously, HTF can a fish be halal? Does the damned boat need to be facing Mecca when you're gutting the bloody thing?
With an eye on mid-term elections in November and the possibility of losing the Senate as well as Congress to the Republicans, will Obama take up arms against his favoured faith? It’s doubtful.
