    "He should look at himself," Willie Jackson says. "I mean, he's one of the reasons why things didn't go too well for us in the polls."

    What he said sounds quite plausible. Turning the gang law into a Treaty issue, funny

    @Dodge yeah, I'm posting with a big grain of salt. But, if true, then it should help stop this black and white, good, evil, reductive, cartoon view of this conflict.

    Jeremy Corbyn has to be the UK's (if not the world's) unluckiest anti-racist. Every time he attends an anti-racism rally, someone stands behind him with a racist placard.

    Australia has a housing crisis and it's easy to point the finger at immigrants, primarily because of the record amounts arriving here, but also accurate. The problem is it's not just their fault, although housing all of them is clearly a key driver of the problem. Some people complain that it's because of negative gearing, but that's an ignorant argument, the real problem is the capital gains discount treatment and increasing population with decreasing ability to met the commensurate demand.

    On that last point it occurred to me that the insistence on making children remain in school until they're 17/18 and go to university to get a useless degree (with associated debt) has resulted in less people doing trades. Less tradespeople, more work and we're confused as to how properties cost more? And then how our tax treatment encourages this unproductive speculation?

    It's fucking sad that anybody has to live like this.

    IT's even worse that it will never ever change.

    liberalism
    /ˈlɪb(ə)rəlɪz(ə)m/
    noun

    willingness to respect or accept behaviour or opinions different from one's own; openness to new ideas. a political and social philosophy that promotes individual rights, civil liberties, democracy, and free enterprise.

    Not entirely sure what the writer was trying to say and not an expert, but liberalism has nothing to do with the political left these days. The political left with its post-modernism-driven identity politics, etc is completely illiberal, the complete opposite of liberalism. Liberalism embraces modernity and science, considers opposing views to progress, believes in judging people not by any immutable characteristics, the list goes on and on.

    Engineers that live in that region have a lot to answer for .....

    Dam Engineering is hyper safety focussed, with rigorous peer review. It's international as well. They are bloody hard to get 'right' - so I am very surprised that this one has gone as poorly as it sounds like it has.

    Interesting update - will google a bit and see what I can find out

    Yeah super common and has been for a few years. Seems to only be certain areas and even then I hear from charter guys saying their catches are all good (which i take with a grain of salt) and others (mainly rec) saying quite a high percentage of their snapper catch are mushy.

    We’ve only had a few of them over the past couple of years but most the fish i target aren’t school fish, so could be something in that.
