      Just thought I;d start the regular crap.

      Labor bad, Liberal good
      Liberal bad, Labor good
      Abbott is a misogynist
      Gillard is a liar
      Conservatives are fascist
      Labor is communist
      Greens are feral

      Carry On

      How can a ‘Liberal’ Government be fascist?

      However, the ‘body count’ of the Socialist Left is the highest of any ideology.

      Even now, the Socialist french Government has deployed riot police to evict illegal immigrant camps in France and at the European Socialist forum, where some 1400 Lefties gathered for the conference, there was shocking homophobic attacks.

      Not the guardians of minority interests in fact.

      Abbott has now reached his “Use By” date
      Gillard passed hers on 24th June 2010

      @PJ - “European Socialist forum, where some 1400 Lefties gathered for the conference, there was shocking homophobic attacks.”

      I think I found this one. Is it 2 Croatian guys getting kicked out of a conference for being overtly homophobic? That one?

      You’re a hoot babbleon. I see you still have your PJ’s on.
      I also see your problem and understand why your posts are so confused.
      The Liberal party is liberal in name only. The Liberal party is a right wing conservative party. Have no idea why they decided to call themselves the liberal party. They might as well have called themselves the ultimate green party. That would have been as close to their beliefs are the liberal party.

      Opi is right.

      For PJ - The Liberal part of the Liberal Party is now an accident of history. Its the Right Wing Conservative Party - which is about as Liberal as the Catholic Church…

      Yesterday it was announced at lunch time that Beijing would reduce the price of petrol by 4c AU a liter, the fourth such reduction in 12 months, due to the falling price of oil. It made me wonder what was happening with Petrol prices in Australia. I noticed that they had raised to 148 and in the last weeks fallen back to about 144.Still high in my book with falling commodity price.

      Don’t get me wrong I don’t make this statement in an attempt to laud the Chinese government but to ask why Australia’s prices still remain high when global oil prices seem to be on the decline?

      Remember I am not there so I ask are petrol prices falling? I am relying on graphs but every thing I read is talking about low oil prices and falling oil prices. Also futures are at a remarkable $85 a barrel. Yet Australian petrol prices remain stagnant.

    • iansand says:

      08:28am | 17/11/12

      I don’t know where you are, but up the road I can get 129c/litre pre discount.

      Have the Chinese solved their supply problems, or is petrol still rationed?  Are prices still kept artificially low so the local oil companies are forced to sell at a loss?

    • Gregg says:

      10:26am | 17/11/12

      Australian prices are based on a price set in Singapore as a global benchmark, can’t remember whether that is crude oil of refined but whatever, you will find that there is always some lag time between various pricing, just the way free enterprise works and no real emphasis meant on free for it is a long established term that is used, the basis being that enterprises in a competitive international market will see a price established with free movement brought on by the supply/demand forces of any commodity.
      ie. if the demand is up, more people may be prepared to pay a bit more for it or likewise if there is a shortage of supply.

      What you may find when prices are reduced at point of sales and yes Australian prices do fluctuate significantly, more people will be buying fuel to make trips they might have otherwise reconsidered the necessity of.
      That in turn will raise demand again and any price drops can be short lived.
      Obviously, the key international suppliers also like to have a finger in the pie re what price their product will achieve for them.

      ” Yet Australian petrol prices remain stagnant. “
      You will also find graphs will lag behind reality and it is more reality you ought to rely on but I would not be getting too real over yonder and coming out with what a another lot of clones we have in the new politoburo.
      Did you have a chance to vote btw!

      That new el pingo leader could nearly be a Chinese version of our Ray Martin.
      Any chance the Chinese could get interested in cricket?
      Could be the Australianisation of Asia in return for Julia’s Asianisation of   Australia.

    • ZSRenn says:

      11:06am | 17/11/12

      @ Greg Thanks for your long winded answer but a simple No Australian Fuel prices have not come down would have been easier.

      @ iansand the figure I gave was the average, I would assume you are in a city or on the north coast of NSW129c / litre was what I paid in June in those areas so I guess you are saying No they haven’t also

    • ZSRenn says:

      02:01pm | 17/11/12

      It works out at about the same cost, yetagain, / litre but when you compare it to the average wage it is fucking expensive. It is good Aussie prices are also falling. I hadn’t heard any hoorahs or the like and the AIP chart I saw has it at 144 so I wondered. That is all!

      WHAT IF…what if John Winston Howard had better judged the political climate and stood down a year out from the election he lost.What if he had conducted an orderly transition of power to Costello.What if he had not pushed his IR reforms faster than the electorate were comfortable with.
      Is Howard a vain old man who put his place in history ahead of the nations welfare.

    • tez says:

      08:08am | 17/11/12

      Not everyone knows how and when to go, he would be remembered well if he had stood down for Costello and Abbott would be where he should be now representing his local electorate from the back bench.

      Borders still protected ?
      Budget surplus ?
      No public debt ?
      Business confidence ?
      Civil Parliament ?
      Murray Darling Plan in place?
      Strong foreign affairs standing ?

    • Gregg says:

      Old old story LMAO and then of course we have Abbott and Bishops not to mention Swann and the ugly ducklings.

      Howard btw Aghast was always quite open with maintaining he would serve as leader of the LNP in parliament whilst the LNP wanted him to remain.
      Aside from his electorate having a different view there for a while, it was up to Costello or whomever to have enough support to dethrone him, just like Julia and Kevin, Brendan and Malcolm and Malcolm and Tony.

      02:00pm | 17/11/12

      If Costello had stayed in Parliament he would probably be the Liberal leader today and the Liberals may well have won the last election.  That was Costello’s third bad decision.  The first was when he stepped aside in 1995 to allow Howard to become Liberal leader again.  The second bad decision was believing John Howard’s promise that he would hand over the leadership midway through his second term.  Australia is the poorer for those bad decisions by Costello and one can only wonder what if…

    • LMAO says:

      If I may, Oscar. One bad decision may be regarded as a misfortune, three looks like carelessness.

      Another Labor Policy that has been proven to raise the price of Power has been scrapped and about time to. Climate Change Minister Greg Combet said households had borne the brunt of those payments, through higher power bills, and the multiplier should be scrapped early.
        Opposition environment spokesman Greg Hunt said the Government had “finally admitted its solar phantom credits scheme has driven up electricity prices”.

      “The Coalition warned the Government for over three years that the creation of so-called ‘phantom credits’, where people were paid for solar energy they didn’t generate, would drive up the cost of the scheme for everyone else,” he said.
        I love it when another Labor Policy follows the same route as most Labor Policies and screws the Australian public until they finally realise that its the Policy that is causing the problem. I’ve lost count of the number of Green Labor Policies that have failed, cost more than budgeted or have ripped off the Australian Tax payer for billions but I’m sure there are people out there keeping tabs. How many more of these World saving Policies can the Australian Tax payer afford if this is the direct result?

    • andye says:

      12:48pm | 17/11/12

      @ramases - It doesn’t appear to have been scrapped. It appears to have been scheduled to end 6 months early. Most of your argument rests in the opposition interpretation of the move as indicating failure of the policy, but it would seem demand for solar has been high and if that was the intended goal and they are finishing 6 months early perhaps they are making a budget saving while still having achieved goals? The list of failures that seems to be shared around tend to rest on a failure being any deviation from the original plan. In a dynamic environment, one does not always have the luxury of a stationary target.

      My thoughts are with you mouse. Best of good wishes for your health and wellbeing. It’s fascinating how those that have overcome adversity seem to be the most composed and sanguine people. I would definitely put you in this category and always appreciate your positive posts.

      Not that I’d wish misfortune on anyone, but it seem most people could do with a dose of hardship so as to appreciate humanity a bit more.

      G’Day pa_kelvin, I hope all is well in the land of floor beautification and facial decoration.

      I had a read of Velocity, as per your recommendation, and found it a good read. Not as good as a Matthew Reilly, but a good start for a young bloke. He did get a bit carried away in some chapters but that is why the genre is classified as fiction, I suppose. I’ve always enjoyed an Aussie related novel. Wouldn’t know if you have read any Matthew Reilly, but if you liked Velocity then he is your man.
      I’ve been captured by Conn Iggulden recently, and I had to finish his series of books on the Mongol Khans before I could move on to any new material. Mr. Iggulden writes “Historical Fiction” and does so very well. I started his series on Julius Caesar a while back and look forward to completing these as well. Highly recommended as a bloody good read; though you\I wouldn’t have thought so. (Genghis Khan??)
      I’ve just picked up my boys copy of Game of Thrones and have seen his stack of books in this series with trepidation; there looks to be a few weeks of reading to get through that lot. “The journey of a thousand pages starts with the Prologue”.

      All the best with Movember (I will be donating) and respect to ma_kelvin. Live long and prosper.

      I,ve read every-thing published by Matthew Rielly inc the one published {Road Racer?} for the teenage market {sad I know}.. Can hardly wait for his next book..
      I’m a big fan off Clive Cussler, but his story-lines are a bit to alike, but still make for a good read… Also Andy McDermott Cult of Osiris series of books.

      I enjoy Matt Reilley books for the explosive adventure ride they are. They are escapist over the top fun and don’t pretend to be anything else. There are pretentious knobs who like to waggle their fingers at his work as far to lowbrow for them, but I say get into it, enjoy them for what they are - fun and exciting.

      I have all his books and met him one time at a signing.

      I thought “Hover-car Racer” was alright for the market he was aiming for; yes, I read it as well. I purchased the edition with the schematics and race plans, for my boys, of course. Eagerly await his next instalment.

      This Game of Thrones series, do you know much about them? Over the last 2 nights I’ve tried to get into the first book with much who?-ing and what?-ing going on. Why can’t Mr. Martin just call his characters George or Charlie. These Illyois’s and Aankuhjretf’s (?) do my head in. And why can’t they come from the Land of Sand, instead of the Land of Aankuhjretfstien-South. I’m sure it will all gel after a few more chapters…?
      I had the same problem with Lord of the Rings. Every time I tried to start the bloody thing, it all seemed a bit traumatic, so I just went and re-read The Hobbit, again.

      All-time favourite book?  I’ll have to think about that.
      I do like a good biography. Keith Richards’, “Life”, was excellent. As was Marianne Faithfuls “Faithful”.
      I do enjoy Peter Fitzsimmons’ writing. His Kokoda book is a very good read that should be manditory for schools. Beats “to kill a mocking-bloody-bird”

      Hi Yak…. Not much into Fantasy books, and would rather wait until they transfer to the movies…. I actually thought “Game of Thrones” was a new computer game when I first heard of it… smile
      Do love a good Sci-Fi movie ,but not the books as its easier to see a light saber than it is to imagine one…

      Glad to hear that you are on your way to good health and enjoying every day to the fullest.  Congratulations and high regards goes to all the doctors and nurses that help people with cancer.
      With all the new treatments and discoveries it won’t be long until we no longer need to live a life with cancer.
      I have noticed so many people have cancer or know someone with cancer.
      I myself have had cancer back in 2005 a 3 cm clear carcinoma was found in my left kidney.
      My doctor said because it was found in the middle of the kidney he was going to take it out. Also people live a long time with one kidney with no problem.
      I got very lucky too as I had no symptoms and I went to my doctor to get healthy and get my blood pressure down. During routine checkup she discovered it.  One month later I had the kidney out with only a minor infection.  I went to both my doctors who said I was very lucky and go and have some champagne to celebrate.
      Also one of my doctors said to me did you see the other lady in the reception with the bald head she was not as lucky as you.
      Doctors and health care providers are my number 1 best people.  Also I appreciate your conversations and comments of encouragement for Pa_Kelvin. Its good to know there are good people out there in this tough world. You deserve to be happy and wish you all the happiness and joy into the future. I will have a toast of wine to all the health care providers and you and thank them.

Gawd, you have to stick around for a bit longer yet….or who’s gunna look after pa??? lol Hope you both are hanging in there. If pa has to go ahead with chemo, fear not, it is not the big bad bogeyman it used to be, you will both get through it together!  Having a scare like that tends to put a new perspective on most things I think.  Nothing gets me down any more, no time for it I’m afraid.  2 weeks ago I went over to Melbourne to pick up a brand new camper trailer, a nice bright, shiny one! lol So there will be a few short runs to work out what’s needed, what isn’t, etc, etc.  Then a few longer ones maybe, then maybe hit the road, maybe follow and work the fruit trail or pick up some other sort of work along the way. Who knows, who cares! lol It should be fun.  Both of my kids are self sufficient. My darling daughter will be around the house for a few more years yet and look after the animals when we are not there, so there is only one way to find out hey!! Never know, I may just head up to Qld one day, to pick bananas or pineapples or cut sugar cane and might just bump into you both!  hahaha Scary times ahead!! LOL :o)

      The following is multi-culturism in action, but lefties wouldn’t want to talk about it, because it doesn’t suit their idealism. Their political correct feeling is way important than the welfare of western nations. The emperor has no clothes but it’s a bigger sin to say he doesn’t have one. So the knock out terms are “racism”!!!

      “SHE is as renowned for her outspoken views as she is for her cooking.
      So when celebrity chef Clarissa Dickson Wright decided to write about her day out in a multi-cultural part of Leicester, she didn’t mince her words.

      She wrote: ‘I found myself in an area where all the men were wearing Islamic clothing and all the women were wearing burkas and walking slightly behind them.

      ‘None of the men would talk to me when I tried to find out where I was and how to get out of there because I was an English female and they don’t talk to females they don’t know, while if the women could speak English they weren’t about to show it by having a word

      ‘I have many good acquaintances and even some friends among the Muslim community, yet here I was, in the heart of a city in the middle of my own country, a complete outcast and pariah.’

      She said the positive side was the ‘very good selection of Asian restaurants’ and added: ‘If multiculturalism works, which I have always been rather dubious of, surely it must be multicultural and not monocultural.”

      ‘Joan Rivers mistaken for illegal alien’ makes better sense.

      Nah, it’s good to have another female to chat with. Don’t get me wrong, I love talking to you guys, but sometimes having another lady to bounce off is good too. I’m glad ma is on board and may her contributions continue, the lady is much welcome!  :o)

      Apparently a lot of important Jews in this country do not like me.
      May I ask them that, if it is personal, they don’t take it up with my parents and bribe them to retract my inheritance (which didn’t work, and blackmail was the effect) then they can argue any point with me, here.
      There are so many geniuses there, hey ... so where are they ?

      Came in to check on the article by James Campbell, The Unfortunate Paper Trail Which Labor Can’t Ignore and it has disappeared out of the blue. Just vanished into thin air without any explanation. This is what I got.

      Has PM Julia Gillard used her authority and have ordered to take it down because was about her and her involvement in the Slater & Gordon boyfriend AWU slush fund.

      I am guessing I won’t have this published.

      The article has been pulled for the time being @Shine A light. Advice was both given and heeded. All I can say for now, sorry - Ant

    • pa_kelvin says:

      Censorship at its best Ant…
      I can understand an oops that shouldn’t be up, but its been taken down with only 2 hours of the Punch remaining….

      Thanks Ant, much appreciated. I would hope Punch would do the same for the Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott when things get too hot and sticky.

      What I find rather odd is the article was pulled out altogether. Other articles concerning PM Gillard was usually left with Punch closing comments for the day.

      Once again, thank you.

      Potentially yes, but this isn’t a righty vs lefty thing, it’s just a thing thing and a thing which occurs sometimes in online media
