The grate debate

I am  looking forward to the grate debate and the victory of the worm over the two grubs.

The worm will win

My prediction is that the worm will win tonight’s debate, not the two grubs. Vote for the worm, not the grubs.

A citizens’ dissembly?

The citizens’ assembly is a Rudd like trick to give the impression of doing something when not actually doing anything at all on climate change. Remember the 2020 summit?

Same policies, different parties: Saturday’s socialist speak out

A citizens’ assembly? WTF? More procrastination on climate change. Refugee bashing. Sustainable population as the new racism. No real difference between Labor and the Liberals on most issues. And meanwhile the possibility of a global double dip recession re-emerges and no one talks about it. Hit the comments button to have your say on these or any […]

When Labor took over the government three years ago, […]

WorkChoices – it’s alive!

Labor’s Fair Work Act is much like Howard’s hated WorkChoices. That’s why Tony Abbott says he can live with it.

Gillard and Abbott – the Bobbsey twins of conservatism

Real change doesn’t come through Parliament. The way forward is class struggle, not the Bobbsey twins of conservatism.
