  1. The Doomajee case is cause for national shame and really shows why no real progress is made in Aboriginal affairs.
    Lack of trust.
    As ever, Aboriginals ask themselves “why bother”, when whites proclaim the superiority of their civilisation, centrepieced by our so called justice system and urge the victims to rehabilitate themselves to meet “civilised standards, when our “standards”, when the default measure for our “civilisation” is Palm Island and the frightful murder of Doomadjee.
    .

  2. In regard to the “CPRS Endgame”, it would appear that one of the teams has split in 2.

    It seems to me that an endgame could be some months off, with the entire proposal being placed in the hands of a Senate inquiry.

    You have to admire the tenacity of Peter Dutton, trying to get himself into the position of Deputy Leader under Tony Abbott in order to raise his profile, after his previous plan to desert his electorate in favour of greener pastures failed.

  3. Copenhagen mightn’t be enough based upon scientific evidence, but at least if it goes in the direction it seems it might, then enough countries will be heading on a path in the same direction.

    From that we may apply pressure upon those that refuse to carry any burden, however slight. Even Canada has thought it had better make a showing at Copenhagen, now that the USA has.

    Perhaps if Copenhagen is successful at getting the countries on the same path, roughly aligned, it may then be possible to adjust the path to be more realistic in the face of the scientific evidence. One can hope.

    Cheers,
    Don.

    PS: Have you thought of running again, say as an independent?

    Have you ever tried getting the Chinese government to do anything that it doesn’t want? Especially in view of the fact they are producing 55% of emissions?

    Put pressure on them for what. Havent your heard the earth is cooling.
    This tax grab has nothing to do with the environment. Its all about control and enforcement with wealth distribution. Thats it.

    Havent you heard. Andrew threw a left turn into the greens.

  6. Thanks Donald

    You’re right about Copenhagen Donald. I think there is still a fair chance of some progress being made there which will at least move things further in the right direction – whether it will be far enough, fast enough is an open question, which is why it is important for the general public to keep maintaining the pressure in as many ways as possible.

    One benefit of the weak CPRS being defeated is that it opens up the chance of a much stronger scheme being put in place and for there to be much fuller debate about the facts of climate change, what emissions cuts are needed to avoid serious environmental, social and economic harm as a consequence, and how best to bring that about. If the flawed amended CPRS had passed, there would have been a fair chance the government and media would have treated the issue as ‘dealt with’, at least politically, and shifted attention elsewhere.

    As noted, I am running again. I’ll be pursuing much the same approach and be as independent minded as I was before – but running as an independent candidate never really appealed to me, as I prefer to put energy in building and supporting a wider group of people. Needing to find a new viable party, the Greens were the obvious choice, given the many similarities with the Democrats over a number of years, and the fact that they are now evolving to take on much of the Democrats’ previous role and approach.

    (and best to just ignore Tony – he’s mostly harmless, despite his habit of dishonest propagandising. I hope he only takes that approach on this site, rather than when he’s speaking in his official role for the DLP, although sadly I wouldn’t be surprised if adopts the same tactics elsewhere too.)

  7. I don’t think Tony is the stupid one on this, but I don’t think Andrew has taken a left turn either. He has just continued down the same relentless path to Global Communism, along with wiping out the livestock industries, and legalisation of amoral recividist acts.
