Germany’s wind and solar power generation came to a standstill late last year. More than 23,000 wind turbines ran out of wind and most of the one million photovoltaic systems ran out of sunlight. For a whole week, coal nuclear and gas-powered plants generated an estimated 95 percent of Germany’s electricity.
What is it with footballers of all codes? Rugby League star Blake Furguson, after repeated other offences, has been found guilty of groping a woman’s breasts in a Cronulla nightclub. CCTV evidence shows him also forcing his hand up her dress and grabbing her front bottom while she struggles to free herself from the oaf. Crumbs, tennis players and golfers don’t do this sort of thing, do they?
Fly west from Australia’s east coast, look below and witness the gradual degradation in land and its gradual decrease in value. Not until you near the west coast does land quality and its value start to increase again.
The Senate Inquisition on Scott Morrison’s success in stopping the boats should have been compulsory viewing for all Australians. It was rare television entertainment (but far from funny) as the deep schism between unrepresentative, un-Australian swill and representative competence was on display for all to see.
Julia Gillard and Bruce Wilson would have been in jail in the late 90s if it weren’t for the lack of a complainant, and we would have been saved from three years of a PM from hell. It’s easier to spear a slippery eel with a broom handle than nail a corrupt unionist without a complainant.
Thank you for your recent letter to The Immigration Department expressing your profound concern at the treatment of Islamic boat arrivals to our country.
Michael O’Connor (brother of Gillard Cabinet Minister, Brendan O’Connor) is National Secretary of the CFMEU (BLF) and no stranger to corruption.
It is impossible for a modern Navy vessel not to know exactly where it is at any time to within a metre. So, is there more to this?
We are a country of rich and diverse cultures and we celebrate that with gusto. European and Asian immigration has made us what we are.
According to his Facebook page at the time, Omar Halaby works for a construction company while boasting that he currently draws a disability pension.
As with all third-world Islamic States, Indonesia has an inflated concept of its own military capability. The will of Allah is their secret weapon and he will ensure the infidels’ destruction in any conflict. That hasn’t been the case of course, yet it hasn’t dulled their genuine belief in Islamic supremacy.
This bloke, Minister for Social Services Kevin Andrews, is the idiot author of the $200 save-your-marriage vouchers. As surely as Labor attracts the odd Commo, the Libs attract the odd far Right nutter.
Just when you think the Libs have got it all together they come up with another pearler... $200 vouchers for newlyweds to visit marriage counsellors. WTF? Newlyweds don’t need counselling, they’re too busy trying different positions in the shower, on the kitchen table and in the stair well. And in my limited experience it’s hard to pick a fight during orgasm.
While Left-Green commercial media drowns in red ink, the taxpayer funded ABC, still pining for Gillard, continues to defy its charter and openly seeks to discredit and undermine the Abbott Government... and not a murmur of disapproval from the responsible Minister, Malcolm Turnbull.
