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)

Commonwealth Bank cuts workers’ wages

Commonwealth Bank management salary cuts are tokenistic posturing aimed at convincing staff to accept a real wage cut.

Stats sacks staff

According to Satuday’s Canberra Times, the Australian Bureau of Statistics has begun to carry out its decision to sack 180 staff.  This week 31 learned they are going. More will get the boot in the coming weeks. My union, the CPSU, has done nothing but talk. Only mass meetings of all CPSU members to consider indefinite strike […]

Is this 1929 or 1989, or both?

Every strike contains the seeds of revolution. Therein lies our hope and our future.

The Liberals are shifting further to the Right. Her supporters, to generalise, come from […]

Queensland has class

Working class voters decided Premier Bligh in Queensland could protect and create jobs. She can’t. Politics is about to get very interesting.

Booze, bingeing and bullshit

Let’s get drunk on our power, not their poison.

The spectre of unemployment

A spectre is haunting Australia; the spectre of unemployment. Last month in Australia unemployment went up from 4.8 percent to 5.2 per cent. There are now 590,000 unemployed. 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 […]

Labor will dexter the public service

Lindsay Tanner will not take a meat axe to the public service. He’ll dexter it. Although the techniques are very different, the results are the same. Tanner will destroy public service jobs, programs and lives. In Long-term sustainable growth, a speech Tanner gave to the National Press Club on 11 March, the Minister for Finance said: The Rudd Government inherited an […]
