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)

Bikies and the Great Recession

The Great Recession is polarising politics.  As the crisis deepens the extreme right will gain a hearing. Radical reaction is growing again in the womb of society. Pauline Hanson won 22 percent of the vote in one electorate in the Queensland election on Saturday. The Liberals are shifting further to the Right. Her supporters, to generalise, come from […]

Why?  Declining budgets now and into the future. In other words the Rudd Labor […]

The rate of unemployment among 15 to 19 year olds looking for full time work is a little under 24 per cent. There will be at a minimum […]

Welcome to the Great Recession

We are entering the Great Recession.  These are the words of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, head of the International Monetary Fund, not some minor pamphleteer on the web. The IMF predicts global growth this year will fall, possibly by half a percent. Only six months ago the prediction was 4.5 percent growth. In fact, according to ABC […]
