Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Improving Parliament’s maturity

Green Senator Sarah Hanson-Young bought Kora, her two year old, into the Senate yesterday.  The President of the Senate threw Kora out.  She was showing up other senators with the decency of her behaviour and her intelligent contributions.  What sort of workplace, so divorced from reality, doesn’t allow a mum to bring her bub in occasionally? As for the House of Representatives, I suggest you tune in to Question Time to see some really childish behaviour.  Such is the nature of bourgeois democracy.

Improving parliament’s maturity has been set back decades by the dereliction of duty evident on both sides of the political fence, with regard to promoting anthropogenic global warming. They have not conducted any due diligence of the science on which AGW is alleged to be based. They unquestionably accept AGW. After 20 years of searching, the IPCC has failed to come up with any irrefutable evidence to substantiate the claim. Yet, with the use of its unvalidated models and alarmist predictions, the IPCC has conned the media, parliamentarians and people at large into believing that AGW is real. Parliament should be aware that there is no scientific or economic justification for passing the CPRS legislation, and that its passage is being driven on false political grounds. Passage of the CPRS can only result in serious economic damage which will impact throughout the Australian economy.
