Expect KK got a bit of help with the article.

Did not see article. Left the Oz Weekend somewhere and refuse to subscribe online to the Oz (perversely I buy it two or three times a week)

Yes she is clueless on company tax but she is generally right in that he is a serial tax avoider.

If you cant make the point that he is a serial tax avoider without the distortions she uses then you need more help

Meanwhile Quadrant, Australia's extreme right journal, has used the Manchester bombing to launch an attack on the ABC. WTF.

See below. I refuse to click on Quadrant.

The ABC’s national security manager, Jason Alcorn, has written to staff about the Quadrant article and assured them that “proactive steps have been taken to ensure the safety and welfare of all staff and users of ABC Ultimo”.

“While consideration is given to minimise inconvenience please appreciate that intermittent increased security presence and more rigorous security screening is to ensure staff safety and well-being,” Alcorn said.

“The safety and security of all ABC staff is a shared responsibility, be alert and not alarmed and if you see something unusual or suspicious, use your judgment and report [it].”


Seriously?

A total load of shit

A shit over-reaction by a shit organisation to a shit article about a shit program featuring shit people

I was one of the privileged few to view a video of one of Twiggy's sessions with a NT group before lawsuits and criminal briefs flew everywhere. Almost wanted to suit up again. He is the reason good people have to break the law to even things up.

Camels and needles come to mind when I hear of his donations.

Eloquently put. The absurdity of the Q&A segment was evident but calling for it to be bombed was, perhaps, a step too far.

Must say I laughed at the 4 Corners 'expose' of the Chinese purchasing influence. The usual suspects - Dastyari, Robb. The Chinese are doing no more and prolly a lot less than the USA and transnational corps have done for years. Robb could be in strife, but then there was no investigation of Fishnet's role in the E Timor spying exercise. Downer of course got a big consultancy with Woodsde after leaving politics. Was Woodside kept abreast of the outcomes of the spying. If yes, was Downer involved?

I think Truffles was bloody funny. Oakes did him a favour leaking the vision.

Expect his popularity to increase.

I was suprised someone with the experience of Oakes would ignor protocol. Can't see him getting too many exclusives in the future.

Fatoaks has always opposed in confidence. Personally I thought it was funny. Waving two fingers at POTARSE is great.

I'm seriously thinking about joining the Tories so I can vote Abbott out in preselection.

Lots of talk that Dutton will challenge Turnbull shortly.

Abbott has gone completely off reservation and is now praising the ALPs defence policy and seems to be happy making Ng waves on the promise of the Defence Minister job if creepy Pete gets the top job.

The lunar right have not got the numbers to get the qld copper up. Meanwhile the Mad Monk has flipped his wig. Maybe the possible gaoling of his confessor - Big George-has unhinged the bloke.

The vast bulk of tory voters do not support the lunar right's views on the world. Even Skully would not want the MM back or the likes of Pope Andrews or Erics Anazi

That would 100% guarantee the Libs lose the next election. An election that would simply have to be called ASAP if that were to happen.

Democracy is f*cked.

His thinking on nuke subs was a hoot. With Pell hitting the news the same day I had to choose whether to split the news over one bottle of champers or buy two.

Do we even have a nuclear engineering school in this country?

I can't believe how out of touch the Libs have become with the party faithful.

I am dreading 4 years of a Shortarse Prime Ministership, with that wailing banshee Plebiscite by his side. FMD. suicide

Instead you've got Dutton who was not up to being a copper and so plonked into a safe seat. still being a qld copper no doubt helped boost him into his extensive property portfolio. You've also got Michaela show me the money, little George and ScumMo. That lot almost make short pants look like a grown up.
