Critical medicines are blocked from entering Australia as the supply chain becomes collateral damage in a union dispute at a Sydney port, causing drug shortages and delays. Critical medicine shipments are unable to reach Australia, sparking drug shortages and delays because unions are holding the country to “ransom” over a wharfie pay dispute. More
28.09.20. The ABC rounded up a few players to promote “cultural burning” in its march to promote constitutional recognition. There will be about 72,491 NSWRFS volunteer firefighters wondering why “hazard reduction” has suddenly become “cultural burning”—a new, magical solution? As someone that does go to fires, structural and bushfires, motor vehicle accidents and regular civic duties at many show events, I have not encountered any of these ‘cultural burners’ playing about with fire in short grass. The image above is what volunteers do attend because Green stacked councils virtually stopped reduction burns. The image below shows the lack of those ‘cultural’ burning experts now clambering for centre stage! Fellow volunteers when reading this article might consider using bullshit rather than water on future fires?
The ABC: Les Simon watches in satisfaction as clumps of coastal tussock burn on a windswept headland at Meringo on the New South Wales Far South Coast. The Walbanga elder says cultural burning is an important traditional practice that rejuvenates the environment but traditional fire management has not occurred in the region since colonisation. More
28.09.20. ‘Criminal’ ban on hydroxychloroquine based on ‘faulty’ study. Liberal MP Craig Kelly says the ban placed on COVID-19 treatment hydroxychloroquine by Australian bureaucrats violates the Hippocratic Oath taken by doctors and is based on a study since proven false. Mr Kelly said health bureaucrats interfered in the doctor-patient relationship by prohibiting the use of hydroxychloroquine even if the doctor thought the treatment would save the patient’s life. Health bureaucrats have “violated the very first principle of the hypocritic oath” which is to ‘do no harm’,” he said. Mr Kelly told Sky News technically bureaucrats should only ban the use of hydroxychloroquine if the evidence shows beyond all reasonable doubt that firstly, hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work and secondly, that it is dangerous. “Recent studies show that proposition is no longer sustainable … and they must lift their bans otherwise they are engaged in crimes against humanity and they should be taken to the criminal court in the Hague,” he said. “They are withholding medical treatment from Australians that the evidence shows can save their lives More
Nine’s moment of truth as an owner of radio stations has finally arrived — and, interestingly, it’s the ABC smelling blood. In the most important radio survey since the 1980s, insiders at the new 2GB are sweating on Tuesday’s long-delayed ratings in the country’s biggest radio market, Sydney, featuring no Alan Jones. At stake is the No 1 spot 2GB has held for a generation. And ABC Radio Sydney, the city’s No 2 rated radio station, has been taking its shot at the crown with targeted ad campaigns. More
The controversial intervention by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the US election was a “violation” of their “Megxit” deal with the Queen and could further jeopardise their links to the monarchy, according to senior royal aides. Courtiers held talks last week to discuss how the royal household could distance itself further from Harry and Meghan after the couple called on voters in America to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity” in “the most important election of our lifetime” – comments widely interpreted as a swipe at President Donald Trump.

28.09.20. Australia never had such a crass, arrogant, egotist, bully like Paul Keating. True to the Labor elite trademark Mr Keating did comply. The consummate wanker in all respects, to describe the pillock kindly. Need one continue in the same manner, or has the point been made? Paul’s missus could tell you. Although, Annita Keating is too much of a lady to do that!
Paul Keating has never been one to do things by halves. He’s not satisfied with having just a chip on his shoulder; he has two. One of them is named Bob, the other is named Bernie. That’s Bob Johnston, the governor of the Reserve Bank he inherited as treasurer from the departing Fraser-Howard government in 1983. More
