    Mega George is Mega again

    But by jailing a cardinal for these sordid crimes Australia has demonstrated once again that the rule of law runs in this country. Getting here hasn’t been easy but no other country stares down the Catholic church as we do now. This is a day to be proud of that record.

Luke Foley, was forced to apologise for using the term “white flight” during an interview with The Daily Telegraph in which he claimed “many Anglo families” had fled certain Sydney suburbs.I’m particularly concerned about suburbs around Fairfield because they’re carrying just a huge burden when it comes to the refugee intake from Syria and Iraq,”

    Yes wally, nsw Labor pollies are particularly thick headed.

    Do you disagree with his analysis though. I am not from Sydney, but I have read many stories of people being forced out, and rich people from China etal moving in.

    What makes me amazed is this is pushed by the conservative side, who are also the ones screaming ‘immigration’

    “”……..but I have read many stories of people being forced out, and rich people from China etal moving in.”

    I dont agree. Most of the younger Chinese are preferring to live in apartments either inner city or within 10km city ring but still in apartments

    The older ones( for whom it is legal to buy older houses) with children buy based on where the best schools are.

    The main enclaves for the Asians are Haymarket/Ultimo (which is city centre) or Zetland and Wolli Creek a bit further out. The families go to Chatswood or Hurstville.

    Palm Beach is barely even in Sydney

    He really might have hurt his vote because Hurstville and the Ryde areas are very close at this stage 4 days out from the election.

    Then again Gladys cant sell her record. She should be miles ahead based on economic performance but with so much infrastructure being built and causing disruption people only see the short term pain not the gains

    Because they are not factually reported. Cherry picking comes to mind.

    There is an over-representation in the overall statistics

    But consider, statistically, the ethnic group in question is over-represented in the groups of younger and poorer.

    These groups are themselves over represented in the crime statistics

    The #AfricanGangs statistics then becomes lower than these groups, which means, they are actually UNDER represented.

    Further house price declines, rent increases and a $2.3 billion loss in stamp duty revenue due to a slump in property transactions are forecast under Labor’s negative gearing policy if it is elected at May’s federal election, according to new modelling.

    Capital city rents would increase by up to 12 per cent due to an underlying shortage once supply dries up, according to a report released on Thursday by property investment researchers SQM Research. Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide were forecast to be hardest hit, deepening current declining vacancy rates and tightening supply in these cities.

    Batteries allow you to store your excess solar energy and use it when you need instead of sending it to the grid.

    While l agree macrobiz is correct on the visas teamcheerer, there is an overlay of other info which means the nation is stuck with a much higher level of visas than sallymc, you and l would like. Starting with rural, they drove their own workforce away and to the big smoke, bugger all have returned. Then in the big smoke, apart from a few stragglers boomer gen has retired. Patchy and spasmodically younger gens have abandoned various skilled areas, or not further progressed. EG sparkies no longer bother move into repairing white goods or being multi licensed lift mechanics; motor-mechs often toss it in a few years after finishing apprenticeship; few plumbers now bother to do advanced water tech or advanced gas tech. So we have probably now become dependent on highly educated cheap visa slaves much more than any govt will ever admit.

    With ” pre-polling expected to top 30 per cent at this year’s election, Mr Daley’s stumble may be too late to give the Coalition the boost it would like among early voters. He now has just two days to get back on message and convince the remaining undecided voters to back Labor, so expect him to play the stadium issue to the hilt until NSW votes. It remains to be seen if stadiums will prove to be the Premier’s Achilles’ heel as she tries to sell the Government’s infrastructure success without cutting a single red ribbon.”

    TB said – If the Federal Parliament is overstocked with lawyers and economists…

    Inside the Labor caucus, 55 per cent of MPs have previously worked as staffers, electorate officers or advisers before being elected, while 40 per cent have previously worked in roles within the trade union movement.
    Opposition Leader Bill Shorten’s frontbench includes 40 per cent former trade union officials.

    What percentage are lawyers and economists?

    The Simpsons Movie (2007) ; As yet another example that “The Simpsons already did it,” the PRISM story broke nearly six years after The Simpsons Movie depicted the National Security Agency keeping tabs on the average American citizen via wiretaps and unmanned drones. But one man’s Orwellian nightmare is another’s farcical misuse of defense-department resources so when an on-the-lam Simpsons clan is tracked down by the NSA, it’s cause to take a chink out of the armor of our new surveillance overlords. Pointing out the basic foolishness of seeking terrorist needles in ever-accumulating haystacks of pizza-delivery orders and idle chitchat, the NSA wonk who locates Bart, Lisa, Maggie, and Marge ; who’ve escaped from a federally quarantined Springfield ; declares, “Hey everybody, I found one! The government actually found someone we’re looking for!” In the grand tradition of The Simpsons, it’s a throwaway satirical barb that now looks eerily prescient ; much like the “Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others” platform adopted by all viable political candidates in the 2010s.

    @to visualize, this simpsons scene is a fcuking huge call center room, filled with govt clowns eavesdropping thru wiretaps on the average citizens daily blah blah blah. Every time clowntown has given more privacy invasion spook rights; this scene jumps straight to the front of my mind. Worth googling and watching the clip if you haven`t seen the film. (and don`t forget to vote, it makes such a difference!)
