22.10.21.  Re the missing names mystery, we can’t say how to fix it. It is not caused by Morning Mail as our Chief System guru spent two days chasing tips without result. The feature appeared suddenly and disappeared just as suddenly on iPads. It still works on windows based systems apparently. Apple has received more than 600 complaints and couldn’t give a toss apparently, so nothing from that end—net zero! More

22.10.21.  While digesting this article the reader shall be excused for thinking they have been transported to another planet—for the insane. To wit:
The very able Kate McClymont writes: The Obeid family will keep $30 million in proceeds of crime despite family patriarch Eddie Obeid and his son Moses being sentenced to jail terms for their role in a crooked coal deal. Sources have told the Herald that while the NSW Crime Commission could have proceeded against the family for confiscation of their ill-gotten gains, it was decided that the Tax Office would instead pursue them just for the tax that should have been paid on the money. Eddie Obeid was sensationally released on bail within minutes of being jailed for a minimum of three years and ten months on Thursday after his lawyers flagged concerns about the risk of him contracting COVID and dying should he be held overnight at the Surry Hills police station.

22.10.21.  No matter how wrong Tim Flannery gets climate predictions he is “not pulled up by the left,” according to Sky News host Chris Kenny.
“His alarmism over the years, warnings of permanent droughts and empty dams and the like have always proven to be wrong,” Mr Kenny said.
“Today Flannery was out and about again, announcing he was going to the Glasgow climate conference next week … he’ll be off there bagging his own country again.
“The man who encouraged desal plants to be built in all our major cities, $12 billion worth of white elephants, he gets a free pass in the media.” More
22.10.21.  They are not wrong, whom ever ‘they’ are, when they say a fish rots from the head down. That invokes another Labor favourite adage, ‘it’s only a rort if you’re not in it!’ Scandal in politics, the degree of which, is only measured by the scoundrel scale when it doesn’t directly harm a battler. “Inside” knowledge is fair winnings. Nobody gets physically harmed as dollars stream into the bank accounts of the connivers. Ian McDonald, wasn’t he dubbed “Sir Lunchalot” by media for his boozy Friday lunches on the taxpayers? Anyway, Eddie Obeid, the party Godfather is going back to jail.
In the end, not even the pandemic is likely to save Eddie Obeid from jail.
The fallen Labor powerbroker had argued he might not survive imprisonment at 77, too vulnerable to the Covid-19 outbreak sweeping the prison system.
It seemed judge Elizabeth Fullerton was way ahead of him. More
22.10.21.  You can’t say of Donald Trump that he’s ‘back’ because he never really went anywhere. Those in MSM that took delight in trying to eviscerate Trump at each and every turn may well find themselves being targeted by Trump’s many millions of loyal supporters. Poetic justice, it might be said!
After being banned from several social media platforms, former US president Donald Trump has announced plans to launch his own app, TRUTH Social, in a bid to “stand up” to bigger companies. TRUTH Social will be created through a new company formed by a merger of the Trump Media and Technology Group and a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), both organisations said in a statement.

22.10.21.  Morning mail has been following the burgeoning social and financial predicament now facing China’s Xi Jinping, the would be conquerer of the free word. Most of that news is beyond the purview of MSM.
The fear has been turned down “only a notch” after Evergrande shares were down by 10 per cent on the opening of the Hong Kong stock market on Thursday, according to Sky News Business Editor Ross Greenwood.
“The reason is because this company has got some $400 billion worth of debt, it’s China’s largest property developer, it has been the main stay for many Chinese people to actually try and get their foot onto the property run,” Mr Greenwood told Sky News Australia.
“And of course, many of them will lose significant amounts of money if this company goes broke. More
22.10.21.  The Gladys Berejikilan/ICAC saga rolls on like a glacier grinding a path across the land. A dispassionate look at notes is followed by an emotionless deliberate phrasing of a question and you get the impression that there is nothing wasted, the question always seems to have a point and is cross referenced. It doesn’t pay to be glib and light-hearted with this type of questioning, snappy one-liners are slowly rolled over and questions go slowly relentlessly on.
Berejiklian’s situation is rife with varying predictions from commentators at large. They all can’t be right, and maybe none are, but one report at least is confident she is unlikely to be vindicated.
The shattering force of Mike Baird’s evidence to a NSW ­corruption inquiry on Wednesday effectively ends any pretence that Gladys Berejiklian might emerge unscathed and vindicated at the conclusion of the public hearings. It should also rightfully end the ludicrous attacks recently waged against the Independent Commission Against Corruption for daring to pursue this investigation, which mere days into its two-week sitting has already unearthed troubling findings.

22.10.21.  Nearly 1,900 Washington state workers were fired or quit over the state’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, officials said Tuesday. Before the mandate led to resignations and terminations, the state had approximately 63,291 workers. About 3 percent, or 1,887, left their jobs or were fired as of Oct. 18 due to the mandate, the state’s Office of Financial Management said.
In Australia Australia’s supermarket giants Woolworths and Coles will make the Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for staff whether they are on the check-outs, in office jobs or distribution centres, as German budget retailer Aldi flags it is likely to do the same. Woolworths’ 170,000 workers and tens of thousands of Coles employees across Victoria, NSW and the ACT will face a mandatory vaccine policy.
Meanwhile the the Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Oct. 21 called for a special legislative session to consider bills countering vaccine and mask mandates. The move follows a series of CCP virus vaccine mandates imposed by the administration of President Joe Biden. This does not sit well with the Florida Governor, and he has “had enough” of federal interference into state business, Christina Punshaw, Press Secretary told the Epoch Times. More
22.10.21.  If you want to see if cancel culture will come to you, put up a controversial point on Facebook then sit back and see what the cancel trolls do to you. The drive to eradicate offensive words, images, and opinions from the public square is rapidly displacing liberal commitments to freedom of speech.
For ‘cancel campaigners’, freedom of speech is not a right; but something permissible only insofar as it conforms with conceptions of social justice regarding race, gender, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. We have seen even our governments cancelling anyone who dares argue with over lockdowns and jabs. In Victoria, they even shoot you for arguing an alternative view, and as Michael Brown discusses, we need to stand up against this insidious left-wing culture: More
