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)

The biggest issue of concern is economocide. This is the main policy supported by the super rich which enables everyone else across the world to be financially abused.

Friends who have worked in the federal parliament told me some years ago that they thought Tony Abbott was grooming Peter Dutton to be the next Prime Minister. Since Malcolm Turnbull has been PM, the grooming has continued, remembering also that the PM is never chosen by a party or by the people, but by those working for the super rich.

Peter Dutton is my elected representative. I would like to see him marry certain of the better elements of his personal social policy to the economic needs of ordinary Australians.

What he spouts on TV comes from a script written by others. He has about as much idea of what happens in refugee camps as the rest of us.

Not long ago, left wing television was caught out falsifying the record. The only way to find out what happens on Manus Island, Nauru etc is to go there ourselves and try to get a decent “heads up”.
