If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.


Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


The Gold Coast is awash with drugs and if you want the celebrity status of owning nightclubs then it’s best to know the law well. I won’t go near night clubs whether they are owned by family members or not, they are dangerous places where, like VLAD laws, mere association can be a crime and it’s impossible to know the ages of who you are speaking to.

Personally I object to being sniffed by dogs, manhandled by Maori bouncers and paying insane prices for alcohol. The two girls involved (now 18 and 19) were invited to a party in Jamie’s unit by a certain tennis player where communal amounts of cocaine were available. Apparently the two girls partook of the free party drug.

Jamie may have supplied the cocaine but was oblivious as to who had used it and in what amounts. It appears that when the two girls arrived home that night they were clearly under the influence of something. After interrogation they admitted to their parents that free cocaine had been available at what they believed was Jamie’s unit.

The parents then reported the girls’ admissions to the police. After the police had interviewed the girls they found two credible witnesses prepared to bring charges against Jamie. Jamie told me that he wasn’t even there and had never met the girls but that made little difference legally. It was his unit and reportedly his cocaine so the police had a water tight case if the girls stuck to their story.

It’s hard to find a party on the Gold Coast where drugs are not freely available and when a night club owner is involved it gives the police a free kick whether the club owner is in attendance or not!

Now I’m not defending him, he should have known better, but every underage kid I know skites about his/her use of a false ID to gain entrance to night clubs, so how can anyone tell their ages and how can anyone monitor drug consumption on such a large scale.

Jamie aged 51 (bloody hell, he’s older than me) says he is a changed man and has joined the fight against the proliferation of the evil drug ice. I suggest that this would be at the instruction of his solicitors. But I don’t doubt his good intentions because anyone who has witnessed how ice has destroyed good lives would want to help.

I no longer recognise former good friends who, because of ice, have sunk so low they have little hope of recovery. It's a hideous drug.

So if you hold a party at your home, even if you are not there, make sure that no drugs are available or you too might have a visit from the police accompanied by two girls who are now prepared to be honest about their ages.

Drugs are here to stay (as was alcohol) the only difference that police can make is in the price... it goes up with every seizure and we the home owners suffer more break ins.

Oh well, you don’t stop loving your kids just because they are stoopid. 


Melting ice sheets are causing changes in earth's wobble about its axis.

For a comprehensive debunking of the socialist anthropogenic climate scare campaign based on rising CO2, this 2012 report from David Middleton is a ripper .........

Visionary or deep Green loon? You decide. Reeve Musk (/?i?l?n ?m?sk/; born June 28, 1971) is a South African-born Canadian-American business magnate,[9][10] engineer,[11] inventor[12] and investor.[13][14][15] He is the founder, CEO and CTO of SpaceX; co-founder, CEO and product architect of Tesla Motors; chairman of SolarCity, co-chairman of OpenAI; co-founder of Zip2; and co-founder of PayPal.[16][17][18] As of March 2016, he has an estimated net worth of US$13.5 billion, making him the 75th wealthiest person in the US.[19]

Musk has stated that the goals of SolarCity, Tesla Motors, and SpaceX revolve around his vision to change the world and humanity.[20] His goals include reducing global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption, and reducing the "risk of human extinction" by "making life multiplanetary"[21][22] by setting up a human colony on Mars.

He has envisioned a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop, and has proposed a VTOL supersonic jet aircraft with electric fan propulsion, known as the Musk electric jet.[23][24]

Tesla recharging stations recently installed here in Wodonga, next to the Council Chambers. I have yet to see a car recharging at them. Both Sydney and Melbourne are out of range. Driving at the speed limit without stops in a Petrol/Diesel car takes about 4 hours to Melbourne.. So how long would it take an electric car that would have to stop along the way to recharge?
Just ANOTHER city centric pipe dream.

That's the last time I'm nice to you Saddler. Don't ever thank me again.

I'm kind to all my friends here on PP Sadlad. What channel are you on. You don't count.

Second wonder after all the exposees at the Tony Abbott /Dyson Heyon RC.

The nanny state is going gang busters in France. A new law has been passed, clients of prostitutes will be fined 1,500 Euros, What the hell has the state got to do with a guys private sex life with another adult female? So what if he pays her a few bucks.

For all you good folk arguing which political party to support, a question. What is the difference between a septic tank and a politician? There is a real limit to the amount of shit in a septic tank!

Google chain emails before spreading them. It's that easy.

Knight1, I still appreciate your being concerned enough to warn everyone here. It is well-intentioned on your part, and on behalf of everyone, I thank you.

Aussie, yes that email is an old hoax dating back to 2008. However, as I said, be careful of any email attachment.

No it's not you; and yes, Shorten is a juvenile


cinerama..yes you are spot on ..both times...


Two Australian students (read idiots) shot when a drug buy goes wrong, or something, in New Orleans. Tell someone who cares. Except for the money the Australian taxpayer is probably forking out for their education and will never recoup. With a bit of luck the US authorities will take a good look at this and kick them out of the country.

Great to see the Government has half a brain to stop funding islamic schools due to surprise surprise corruption within a barbaric system,now lets see if they can get back some of that tax payers money

Why do so many of our politicians and new ruling class suffer from arrested development...its in plague proportions.
