    Time to dust off those Aussie companies paying halal tax on your behalf.

    Apart from Cadbury’s, sadly Harris coffee, Vittoria coffee, Milo all contribute to the Islamic tax.

    The only good coffees not paying halal certification are the imports – Lavazza and Aurora.

    • luk1955 16/02/2020, 2:24 pm

      I used to buy Natural Sea Salt chips till I found out that Natural fell for the islamic halal tax.

    Vegemite. Coopers Beer(!).

    • Pensioner Pete 12/02/2020, 8:03 pm

      Yair, the Coopers Beer made me laugh as fair dinkum Musso’s do not drink alcohol – supposedly, thus what is the point of the Halal ripoff being on Coopers Beer, other than to rip us off to support terrorists?

      • Peter W 16/02/2020, 9:57 am

        ….that’s why some non food products are listed as halal; alcohol (metho) has not been used for wiping down surfaces. Can you seriously believe this scam?

    This is no good ‘Woke and Joke’ are negotiating with Goldman Sachs,


    The Queen is the last monarch as Chuck won’t last 5 minutes. Once they go political they have automatically alienated a section of the community.

    I feel for Philip and the Queen to finish their lives with such a woke preaching & money grabbing mob to succeed them.

    And BTW Turnbull was CEO Goldman Sachs Australia so it is clear as to how low these two have sunk.

      His son also spent time at Goldman Sachs.

    Pauline Hanson is cementing herself and One Nation into the spot where the National Party once kept until now whereupon they (Nationals) are tearing themselves apart over failing to meet the Natiional voter base expectations.

    Refers: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7995791/Racist-Pauline-Hanson-says-Aboriginal-people-disadvantaged-negligence.html

    Everything Pauline says can be backed up by facts and evidence over decades, she is RIGHT ON THE MONEY.

      I agree P/Pete. Pauline is everything the Nationals were supposed to be but are no longer even close.

    I am never endingly surprised at the arrogant stupidity of Victoria coppers. I live on a busy country highway that has a lot of large truck traffic. Between the truckies and mortorists I find that I am constantly tailgated, and I mean tailgated. To add insult to injury I have been tailgated by the local copper on two occasions and have witnessed him doing the same to other motorists. No, he is not checking speeds but moving from one location to another as he operates from two country police stations. When this fool tailgates you it is for many kilometres and at a distance of one car length or less at 80 to 100 kph in high risk Kangaroo strike areas.
    I have thought about putting a rear facing camera on the car but have been told by locals, who also complain about that blokes conduct, that Victorian coppers won’t accept vehicle cameras as evidence and so this moron continues to get away with tailgating and unnecessary speeding.

    • Pensioner Pete 13/02/2020, 3:11 pm

      Old 4WD Toyo farm ute, with lots of bullbar and towbar steel and unusually very efficient brakes would see a quick end to his behavior. You would need the dash cam front/rear to ensure you have evidence to protect yourself.

      Like out here, with a bit of close bush, it is almost impossible to tell when a roo is planning to dance with your vehicle.

      My suggestion comes from witnessing an accident whereby two young blokes were driving a early model Toyo 4WD ute in Cairns at a major intersection, they got a green turn right light, moved forward when a young sheila in a buzzbox ignored the red and the Toyo hit it fair in the guts, there was another buzzbox close behind the Toyo, which ran into the towbar.

      Outcome was two written off buzzboxes, two young sheilas in tears, and two young blokes from the Toyo cacking themselves with laughter. No one was hurt thankfully. the Toyo was completely undamaged and the carnage around it was truly a sight to see.

      Personally, when this happens when I am driving, I put on my Akubra cockies hat, and keep tapping the brakes and slow down, this encourages the wanker to either back off, or pass with middle finger raised and lots of mouth movement. I look at them and smile like any good cocky would.

    • Peter W 16/02/2020, 10:00 am

      I would still film it for the entire length of the “crime” and forward it to a TV station to investigate.

    Its extremely reassuring to see these multi ethnic folk leaving Christmas Island with high praise for the island. (coronavirus)
    These people now know and should spread the truth as the Gangrenes and their sleeper agenda driven “doctors” spread utter bull$hit about the terrible place.
    Keep the praise going, you are doing us a great service at the same time burying the lying filth.!

    • DT 19/02/2020, 7:38 am

      It won’t stop the lying, the refugee industry and its activists have thick skins and have been lying for decades.

      Now they claim that foreigners who came here legally with airline ticket, valid passport and visa, who after arrival apply for asylum, are government sponsored.

      How could government authorities discover that seeking asylum is the real reason for visa application?

      I read that there are now thousands of them who failed the processing now awaiting deportation. How many of them have refugee activist lawyers stalling deportation via the courts?

      Thankfully the Morrison Government followed the lead of the USA and refused to sign the UN Compact on Migrants late in 2018.

      • Pensioner Pete 19/02/2020, 10:12 am

        I understand the number is 50,000+ awaiting deportation due to Peter Dutton doing his job for which he is tasked as the Minister.

        This is why, I have confidence, Peter Dutton will make an excellent Prime Minister, because he gets the job done, come hell or high water, despite all the leftards protests and legal machinations, he continues chucking the fake refugees out.

      • Peter W 24/02/2020, 8:09 am

        I do hope that figure is correct PP.
        All the government needs to do is check their “my life is threatened” statements then check their passports as to how many times they’ve returned to that country they were “escaping”.
        I know someone working in a university where these “asylum seekers and refugees” don’t turn up; the reason is they’re either attending a wedding, a funeral a party etc in these sh!tholes.
        Kick them out, they’ll NEVER be Australians!

  • DT 19/02/2020, 9:17 am

    No wonder QLD and VIC have agreed with the Federal Government to approve construction of two new gas fired power stations, energy emergency and desperation is setting in …

    “If only SA had kept the coal plants running, says Ian Waters:
    The Heywood interconnector can normally carry 650Mw of reliable brown coal fired power from Victoria and regularly stops blackouts in S.A. when the renewables are found wanting. The AEMO has been forced to take extraordinary steps to keep the lights on in S.A. and are ready to force shutdowns of solar, wind and gas units if the demand drops. They have taken control of the 3 batteries in S.A. in desperation. It is an !unprecedented! disasterand the whole state is on the edge. Please look at AEMO market notices 73830, 73832, 73838, 73857 and 73858 and you will recognise how desperate they are and how they are running around in blind panic.

    Now here is the first point: If Weatherill, Turnbull and the AEMO had kept the Northern coal fired power-station running, most of these problems would not occur, the price would be much lower, the State would have sufficient system strength and S.A. would not be minutes or hours away from the next blackout!
    It’s all just another reminder of how fragile our “renewable” grids are now. Despite having nearly twice as much infrastructure to make the same amount of electricity, SA can’t keep itself going without help and a lot of extra money. It’s more prone to price swings, spikes and squeezes that serve Big Corporate profiteers very well.

    Someone is making a lot of money out of this. It’s a bit of a short squeeze with few frequency stabilizers able to help. And spikes can reach the same cap as energy charges — $14,700”

    The NSW Deputy Premier says the Liberal-National Coalition has been “undermined” and is now under threat.

    Environment Minister Matt Kean has launched a consultation period into noise and air pollution caused by freight trains in regional New South Wales.

    The NSW Farmers Association has warned the scheme will hurt industry, force more trucks on the roads and push up grocery prices.

    It’s the latest in a raft of green policies announced by Minister Kean, putting conservative colleagues and constituents offside.

    Deputy Premier John Barilaro has hit out at his colleague in an explosive interview with Ray Hadley, saying he won’t take it any longer.

    “This is wrong, we can’t stand by and cop it and that is why, for me, this has undermined what I believe is the strongest Coalition in the nation.

    “When a Minister of the government is undermining my communities, I cannot stand idle.”

    The Nationals leader says the entire government Coalition is now under threat and insists he’s prepared to deal with the consequences.

    “This has undermined that Coalition because of the constant attacks on my stakeholders and my communities. I can’t sit idle and that will put a strain on the Coalition, there’s no doubt about it.

    “I’m fed up with it and, I tell you what, my partyroom’s fed up with it and that’s why this does put a lot of pressure on where we are at the moment.

    “I’ll cop it from a whole heap of people for saying what I’m saying on radio to you but the truth is, enough is enough.

    “I cannot stay quiet and I’m prepared to cop the backlash for that. I just can’t cop it anymore and that’s why I’m speaking out.”

    Of great relevance to the idea of a man made 50% CO2 increase is equilibrium. The story is that it is all our fault and we need to stop eating hamburgers and everything else.

    I would like to explain how equilibrium works with CO2 between air and the water. Temperature is the average speed of the molecules, in the air or the water. Some are faster and some are slower. They bang around. They impart energy. The hotter they are, the faster they all go. And 98% of the earth’s free CO2 is dissolved in the oceans. The oceans are unimaginably huge.

    And CO2 is very soluble, even under slight pressure as everyone knows. Soda water, lemonade, beer, champagne, yeast, bread making. And very compressible. Remove the lid on lemonade or champagne or beer and the bubbles come from the bottom. Put the lid back and they stop. Cool it and they stop. These are the rules.

    So CO2 will certainly go into the ocean. And CO2 will come out of the ocean. The hotter, faster CO2 molecules in the air can enter the water. The hotter, faster CO2 molecules in the water will escape into the air. So does all the CO2 leave the water leaving none in the ocean? Or does all the CO2 in the air get absorbed? No, so what determines how much is in each, that is the equilibrium level?

    Henry’s Law says that higher pressure and more CO2 is dissolved. Higher temperature and more will leave the water. It’s very simple. It’s an almost obvious law. You see it when you boil water, bubbles of steam. You see hot beer go flat. You can make soda water in a soda stream with compressed CO2.

    And for a given air pressure say 1 atmosphere, how much is in the air and how much is in the water, the equilibrium level is determined by only one thing. Surface temperature.

    Where the ocean surface gets hotter in the tropics or in summer, CO2 leaves the water. Cooler arctic water absorbs CO2. Untold millions of tons of CO2 pass each way, every minute, cycling. And oxygen. Fish breathe. Waves pound air into the water. And surface phytoplankton release half our the planet’s oxygen and gobble CO2. Every living thing needs oxygen and outputs CO2. Many under the water. It is eternally being aerated.

    So if you put more CO2 in the air by burning fuel, more is absorbed by the water. The equilibrium level is maintained, rapidly. Of course this completely defeats the idea of man made CO2 levels. It is the forbidden topic.

    Can we tell how fast CO2 is absorbed on a world scale? Yes. Radioactive C14 was doubled in 1965 and this permeated the world’s CO2. Only one in a trillion CO2 molecules had C14 instead of C12.
    We watched as the C14 plummeted in rapid perfectly smooth curve.

    Now the massive excess of bomb infected air is nearly all gone. And C14 is almost back to the normal level of the last 50,000 years, according to ANSTO. What this means is that all the CO2 from 1965 has utterly disappeared. C14 cannot disappear. It is easily detected and lasts for 5400 years before it is half gone. So where has it gone? There’s only one place. The giant reservoir of CO2 in the deep ocean where it is only 2% of the total.

    As CO2 equilibrium levels are controlled by the ocean surface temperature only, the very idea that mankind is responsible in any way for world CO2 levels is anti science.

    So why is there 50% more CO2 in the last 120 years? Simple. The sun has been a bit stronger. And that is the only reason we can live on what would otherwise be a frozen lump of dirt. As Monty Pythons says, ultimately “the sun is the source of all our power”. The idea that CO2 has somehow warmed the oceans is desperately illogical, the reverse of the truth.

    Now everyone I have written to has ducked this. Climate Commissioner Chemist Dr. Will Steffen gave me no answere and just referred me to the IPCC. Of course.

    And the IPCC reports say that the man made CO2 either (a) stays in the air for thousands of years or (b) takes 80 years to be half absorbed. And they state without proof that the deep oceans cannot release CO2 for thousands of years, which is not our experience in life. Bubbles come from the bottom.

    Last week the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology spokesman replied to my letter that I am completely wrong (NON OFFICIAL), but is prepared to talk privately, if he can find the time and I can make it to his office in Canberra. Nice.

    The ABC science guy denied the whole idea and said I didn’t have a clue about radiation and C14.

    And everyone who disagrees with man made CO2 driven Global Warming wants to debate whether CO2 warms anything. Which is not the point.

    Equilibrium is a concept unknown to most non science people. Chemist Annie would know it. It is known to everyone who has studied chemistry. It’s why there are double arrows in a chemical equation.

    Release CO2 into the air and it just gets absorbed. In fact the more you release, the faster it vanishes. And Earth is 75% covered in very deep water at an average of 3.5km, which means 350x the weight of water and 1400x the heat capacity. Upper atmosphere scientists like James Hansen are missing the big picture on Climate. Sun and oceans. Otherwise it is a closed system. Gravity is our bottle top. Nothing escapes. A few men heading to the moon. The odd probe. And Helium.

    In 100 years, mankind has perhaps added 1% to the world’s CO2 in the closed system. And if, as the CSIRO admit, the world is greener, plants cover substantially more, why isn’t CO2 going down? Because the plants don’t count. We humans don’t count. The CO2 levels are set by equilibrium from a massive reservoir in the oceans.

    There is almost no man made CO2 in the air at any time. This is expected, provable and obvious science. CO2 levels are controlled by equilibrium, not us. Which is exactly why the UN,IPCC bang on about ‘emissions’ because if we really seriously believed excess CO2 warmed the planet and was man made, we would be measuring the impact $2Tn a year is having on CO2 levels. None at all.

      Thanks DT: This all makes sense upon what I know about science and physics. Thanks for posting this up.

    • Aktosplatz 21/02/2020, 8:44 am

      That’s very well presented and thank you DT. However the good news about CO2 removal continues.

      CO2 in the ocean is sequestered as Calcium and Magnesium Carbonates which precipitate as solid . Some of it exist as bicerbonates that remain soluble.

      More importantly though CO2 is scrubbed out of the air by rain and falls on the ground and is grabbed by growing plants and trees (photosynthesis).

      I measured the CO2 falling in rain in 2007 and I obtained results from 1.5 mg/L to 9.7 ,mg /L over several weeks. That’s quite a lot of CO2 removed.

      CO2 is plant food alright which is why your garden seems to spring up after rain.

      So we have a God given free very effective CO2 removal system .

      Oh yes the most important thing Ihave left until the end.

      CO2/rain + sunshine gives (photosynthesis) plant growth + OXYGEN

      Yes! OXYGEN more COs leads to more oxygen.

      We need more CO2 in the air not less.

      We have a wonderful system that is not broke and does not need fixing.

    “So where do the 1934/1998/2010 warm years rank in the long-term list of warm years? Of the past 10,500 years, 9,100 were warmer than 1934/1998/2010. Thus, regardless of which year ( 1934, 1998, or 2010) turns out to be the warmest of the past century, that year will rank number 9,099 in the long-term list.

    The climate has been warming slowly since the Little Ice Age (Fig. 5), but it has quite a ways to go yet before reaching the temperature levels that persisted for nearly all of the past 10,500 years.

    It’s really much to do about nothing.”

    Hybrid Cars Hidden Drawbacks [EV same problem but much worse]

    More than a decade after the debut of the first hybrid car, hybrid technology remains popular with shoppers. But while hybrid cars offer a major cost savings at the pump, they can come with extra expenses, as well. We’ve examined a few of them to let drivers know that going with a hybrid could cost more in the long run.

    Battery Issues
    The biggest drawback to a hybrid car is the battery systems. Nearly all hybrid cars use batteries that are integrated into the powertrain. That’s good news when you’re on the road, since it means the car operates under battery power some of the time. The result is better gas mileage.

    The problem comes when the batteries can no longer hold a charge. Like the batteries in your TV remote, they’ll eventually go flat, and they’ll need to be replaced. Otherwise the car will no longer work, since the batteries are part of the powertrain.

    But unlike the batteries in your remote, it’s not a question of buying more from the grocery store. Instead, you’ll have to buy a new battery from a dealership or a refurbished one from a mechanic. A new battery can cost upwards of $2,500. And while a refurbished unit can be cheaper, it may not last as long.

    Worse, there’s no way to know when the battery might go flat. Many hybrids can last up to 150,000 miles on their original batteries, while some batteries fail as early as 90,000. At that level, buying a used hybrid can be a big risk.

    Do the Math
    We understand there are many reasons to buy a hybrid. For some drivers, it’s about making an environmental statement. But for shoppers who just want to save money, a hybrid may not be the way to go.

    A Toyota Prius, for example, is several thousand dollars more expensive than the similarly sized Toyota Corolla. And while it gets better fuel economy than the Corolla, it would take years to make up the price difference. In fact, depending on your driving style, it could take up to a decade — and that can make a hybrid far less enticing than a gas-powered car.

    In many cases, choosing a hybrid is a good pick. But it’s important for shoppers to know there are still a few drawbacks to modern hybrid cars.

    Hybrids seem to be all the rage with some taxi outfits who probably get rid of them just before the batteries need replacing. I look at it this way, all these supposed renewables are supposed to stop pollution but a Tesla runs pretty much on electricity produced by coal and the hybrids use fossil fuel as in petrol to charge the batteries they run on so where is the gain in that?

    • Pensioner Pete 23/02/2020, 10:01 am

      Bots: The reality there is nothing but a net loss involved with the hybrid, or any battery type vehicle. Thank bloody goodness I don’t own one, the replacement battery cost is horrendous.

      I will stick to my ever reliable and ready V6 petrol 4L HiLux beast thanks.

    • Biking Voter 23/02/2020, 10:25 am

      Hybrids and battery powered vehicles are a sham created by companies to fool the people into thinking green and extract subsidies from gullible governments.

      Renewable energy is like claiming to have perfected perpetual motion, it just aint gonna happen. Every form of renewable energy relies on fossil (or nuclear) energy somewhere in its production cycle and the net output is always less then the input.

    Spectator Magazine

    If you think the shutting down of Holden, the end of that much-loved brand, the loss of automotive jobs and the death of an Australian icon were heart-breaking, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The relentless campaign by (shamefully) the Business Council of Australia, (disgracefully) several bed-wetting Liberal MPs and (predictably) Labor, the Greens and the media to commit us to the latest globalist fad of ‘zero net emissions by 2050’ will see the wholesale slaughter of Aussie brands, products and jobs.
    Qantas will be the first to go. As Julian Allwood wrote in the Financial Times recently, ‘The only way the UK can get to net zero emission aviation by 2050 is by having a substantial period of no aviation at all.’ His reasoning applies equally, if not more so, to Australia courtesy of our physical remoteness from the rest of the world. So forget about the ‘flying kangaroo’ or the ‘spirit of Australia’. If you want to leave these shores in 2050, it’ll be on a small (hopefully virus-free) wooden sailing ship with hemp sails, if at all.
    But the brand carnage won’t stop there. Net zero emissions means net zero production in a host of industries, particularly agricultural ones. As our vegan activists keep reminding us, there is no place for farting and burping animals in a net zero emissions world.
    So kiss goodbye to the Aussie meat pie, the steak on the BBQ and the Sam Kekovich-inspired lamb roast. Bid adieu to our double brie cheeses and Tasmanian camembert.
    And forget about Golden Gaytimes, Cornettos and Paddle Pops. Australian children of the future won’t know what a milkshake or an ice-cream tastes like.
    Without aviation, most of our fresh food exports, which rely upon low-cost airfreight, will collapse. Net zero emissions also means no coal or gas exports due to the fugitive emissions that occur during their extraction.
    In 2018-9, we exported $69.6 billion of coal and $49.7 billion of gas. A total of $119.3 billion that helps pay for our hospitals, schools and healthcare services.
    What export earnings will replace them? Lithium exports, which currently are worth around a hundredth the value of our fossil fuel exports? Dream on.
    As the Australian Financial Review reported last year, ‘Australian lithium exports are growing much slower than expected, and weak demand in China has analysts predicting prices for the battery commodity have further to fall.’
    To even offer up net zero emissions as a ‘target’ without any realistic or viable means of achieving it, as these fools so disingenuously do, is to condemn our children and grandchildren to a lifestyle of probable high unemployment, increased welfarism, poor public services and ill health. In other words, to gift them an Australia that more resembles modern-day Venezuela than the future prosperous land of plenty that should be their birthright.
    Set the targets first, says the BCA, then worry about the mechanism to achieve them further down the track. This, from a body supposedly representing ‘business’, is the height of irresponsibility. Increasingly these days, once ‘aspirational’ targets have been mooted, they tend rapidly to become legislation.
    Scott Morrison is right to refocus the emphasis on technological targets or aspirations, and hopefully this formula will prove successful in silencing the bedwetters within his own party room. But the risk here is that the government starts committing taxpayers’ money to specific projects in the hope of being seen to be ‘doing something to tackle climate change’.
    One only needs to look at the disgusting waste of money on any number of government projects, particularly the woeful, pointless and counter-productive NBN (a Rudd-Turnbull disaster of epic proportions) or the French submarines (another monumental Turnbull disaster) or the looming white elephant of Snowy 2.0 (another Turnbull… are we spotting a pattern here?) to appreciate the danger: governments and bureaucrats with no skin in the game have a disastrous record when it comes to ‘picking winners’.
    And, of course, there is a rather glaring flaw in this latest push by climate alarmists to commit us to this unattainable and undesirable long-term goal. Namely, if — as we keep being told by the media, by the UN, by hysterical schoolgirls, by nutty princes and by dotty doco makers — the world has only X (take your pick) number of months left to avert ‘catastrophic climate change’, then worrying about targets to be achieved in thirty years’ time seems a somewhat pointless exercise. Won’t we all have drowned by 2050?
    As is now standard practice with the climate cult, ‘catastrophe’ is always just around the corner, but the crippling financial burdens required to ‘tackle’ it are magically pushed onto future generations.

    Ever wonder why today’s young people are so bloody dumb? The answer may lay in the fact that it has just been revealed that student teachers trained in our wonderful leftist universities are so lacking in literary and numeracy skills that they are failing their final exams. It is a joke that these dills want to become the teachers of your children and grandchildren when they can’t even master subjects that were once tackled with relative ease by year 5 and 6 primary school children.

    • Peter W 24/02/2020, 12:36 pm

      Yes saw that article. Trouble is most teachers believe they are there just for activism and personal agendas. That in itself opens up more thought on what do they actually know about what their beefs are.
      Bloody morons. WTF are our universities so sought after by nations that are more full bottle than ours?
      Time teachers were weeded out and given the boot. No wonder they fought tooth and nail against being “tested” in the class rooms.
      I’m all for paying teachers far far more than they get now, but kick the useless ones out. Those that can hold a class and have them pass with glowing results need to be remunerated well.
      Those that don’t will no doubt claim their students are dumber than they are.

  • Bwana Neusi 24/02/2020, 12:46 pm

    We can substitute cataclysmic for catastrophic – for a bit of variety don’t you think.

  • Albert 24/02/2020, 4:08 pm

    Are Australian politicians really that dyed-in-the-wool stupid that they can’t understand the falsity of the UN bred fraud that is global warming, carbon polution etc, or is their conduct really a “look over there” thing to distract us from discovering a much more sinister agenda.

  • Peter W 24/02/2020, 4:34 pm

    Hello, anyone been receiving emails from the:

    “The Australian Federation Party”

    I believe they’ve been canvassing us fools that backed Cory Bernardi.
    So I expect they too will be one hit wonders also.
    Still, I will be backing Mark Latham in One Nation.

  • Peter W 24/02/2020, 4:39 pm

    So Dave Sharma, Liberal(?) has been donating to GetUp!

    WTF????? But then its Wentworth, obviously under the instruction from the TurdBull.

    Time for Dutton to make a move.

    • DT 26/02/2020, 7:38 am

      The Australian today reports that GetUp cannot pay the wage bills, apparently donations have fallen.

      Time for more $ millions from unions, AWU and CFMMEU?

      And the Soros Associates of course, maybe the Mansion mob too?

    Our motor vehicles and heavier than air machines have batteries and the battery runs all the little lights, switches, chimes, buzzers, indicators, cruise control, and hundreds of little bits and pieces by a series of wires and circuit breakers and a distribution board. Power stations are like that, a giant battery distributing electricity through a switchyard to a zillion homes etc. Solar panels are each like a tiny DC battery, not even an efficient one depending on what the sun or some dust can do to the panels, and so renewable energy is opposite to a power station and all the wires and switches all have their own tiny battery and the experts tell us that is efficient, A few giant batteries supplying the country with electricity but renewables calling for millions of tiny batteries. It doesn’t compute.

    • Neville 27/02/2020, 8:53 pm


    • DT 28/02/2020, 1:47 pm

      And when the renewables fans quote “installed” they refer to the engineering performance rating “nameplate capacity” but because of the intermittent performance, no wind no sunshine, Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) rates them with Capacity Factor.

      CP 30-35% Wind Turbines but just under 30% is actual recorded performance and solar lower still.

      SA claims 50% of grid supplied by wind and solar, installed, so 15%.

  • Pensioner Pete 28/02/2020, 5:10 pm

    Yet another blow to the rural sector, aided and abetted by the Nationals under the leadership of McCormack. The Nationals have yet again betrayed their voting base and our local MP, David Littleproud voted AYE, thus he is no longer on my Christmas Card list.

    One Nation, are voting NAY in the Senate, thus, attain more voting support out here, edging closer and closer to taking Maranoa off the Nationals, as they are for the Qld seat of Gregory, where the Nationals are also under serious threat from One Nation, and rightly so.


  • Albert 29/02/2020, 8:56 am

    The reason for this draconian plan to stop you spending your own money is supposedly to clamp down on criminal elements. What a load of cocky droppings. It is just another part of a planned move toward a complete police state where your every action will be noted and acted upon.

    • Pensioner Pete 29/02/2020, 5:06 pm

      Albert, I have no doubt this is the case. I telephoned my Federal National Party MP last week about this, to be advised he is voting for the bill, I advised, as a consequence, my friends, my associates, my relatives, and myself are no longer supporting him at the next election, we are all voting for One Nation.

      I then phoned the One Nation office, they advised One Nation are voting against the bill in the Senate.

      The bill however, will pass into law, as Labor/Greens/LNP are voting en masse to pass the bill in the Senate.

  • DT 01/03/2020, 7:53 am


    I found this link at JoNova, UK Doctor John Campbell is the presenter, just skip the annoying lead in advert.

    The person who posted the link commented that it is one of the most informative he has seen.


    • Pensioner Pete 01/03/2020, 2:19 pm

      DT: When this current coronavirus Armageddon dies down, as it will, I wonder what is the next ‘we all is gunna die’ courtesy of the UN going to be?

      After all, the Global Warming scam has worn very thin, polar ice caps failed to melt, polar bears multiplied in numbers not seen, seas failed to rise and flood all and sundry, I am sure you get my drift.

      Perhaps a consultation with Saint Greta may reveal all?

      • DT 01/03/2020, 2:56 pm

        The hoaxers with straight faces will go to cooling is caused by man made CO2 emissions, we warned that climate change would bring about all kinds of consequences, the snow and ice is part of climate change.

        “socialism masquerading as environmentalism”.

  • Albert 01/03/2020, 1:33 pm

    Turnbull? More front than Myers:


  • Margaret 02/03/2020, 3:53 pm

    This is an interesting development in the Cardinal Pell case.

    I have always thought the charges against Pell were fake but I didn’t know who was out to get him or why. It seems the Ndraghedta mafia wanted to stop Pell.

    • Botswana O'Hooligan 02/03/2020, 5:09 pm

      The Vatican were out to get him alright and they probably hope the poor bugger will die before he can be exonerated as he should be.

      • Pensioner Pete 02/03/2020, 6:43 pm

        Margaret & Bots: On the money, Pell became aware of massive financial fraud within the Vatican.

  • Botswana O'Hooligan 02/03/2020, 5:15 pm

    Just reading in The Australian where the Liberal premier of Tassie is going the hydrogen clean green power bit and he said that with 50 million in concessional loans, subsidised power and tax breaks Tassie is going to be a leader and then to cap it off he says something along the lines of “it takes 2000 MW of power to produce 1000 MW of Hydrogen power” but it’s clean and green so that doesn’t count. They are bloody lunatics and completely out of touch with reality or smoking something real good.

  • PeterW 02/03/2020, 6:41 pm

    Apparently 450 homes on the west coast of Wales are under threat of rising seas.
    Climate change is the reason.
    Yep the coast is being washed away by high seas; apparently these seas are high just along this part of the coast.

    Beware of lumpy water.

    Is it just me? For I am seeing alarming parallels with the Global Warming we is all gunna die and the current Armageddon, Corona-virus, we is all gunna die?

    • Margaret 03/03/2020, 5:20 pm

      PP, same narrative. No coincidence.

      The ABC and The Australian have been very irresponsible.

  • Botswana O'Hooligan 03/03/2020, 4:16 pm

    Yairs PP, they are out to get us alright and you don’t have to be paranoid to know that. Mark Latham wants people claiming aboriginal heritage to be DNA tested but after doing a bit of research it appears that there is no known data base to establish that. Mind you, the supposed learned person who wrote that about too many false positives or negatives said that it is a known fact that many aboriginals are known to have light or blue eyes and blonde hair and have done so for 10,000 years so the odour of rodent leaps from the screen to assail the nostrils. I never saw any up in our neck of the woods or throughout the Islands but then again, truth is probably stranger than fiction.

    • Pensioner Pete 04/03/2020, 6:01 am

      True Aboriginal DNA can be extracted from Aboriginal remains kept in the basement of a museum or university of which I understand there are a few, so I see no obstacle to introducing the ‘Aboriginal Originality’ DNA test which needs to be the precursor to any ‘special’ taxpayer funded benefits.

      • Cliff 04/03/2020, 7:37 am

        In this age of so-called equality, where all men are equal, there should be no gravy train at all, but if there’s going to be one, anyone getting on for the free ride for life should be required to have in excess of 50% Aboriginal DNA. Anyone with less than 50% is a whitepella (or whatever else he is).

        Anyone is free to “feel” or “identify” as Aboriginal to his or her heart’s content – but NOT to latch on to any sort of gravy train offering benefits paid by the ‘non-identifying’ taxpayer.

      • Pensioner Pete 04/03/2020, 8:29 am

        Oh, of interest too is the fact, the true original Aboriginal people will be revealed via DNA, to be the pygmy race almost completely obliterated by the current mob of cannibalistic invaders of Australia only a few thousand years ago.

    • DT 04/03/2020, 8:40 am
      • Peter W 04/03/2020, 6:28 pm

        True DT, but I have an Indian friend who doesn’t want to know that! His only comeback was that India has about 640 odd distinct tribes so it wasn’t his folk.
