The NSW Premier will stop at nothing to find out who did this.
“If it wasn’t for the rampant corruption, wilful negligence and sociopathic sabotage of Greens Premiers and Prime Ministers, this wouldn’t have happened.”
Before Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison, you used to have to make stuff up.
No one can doubt that the Premier is making every effort to provide NSW residents with all the sophistry they need.
Not wanting to die in a bushfire is political correctness gone mad.
Spare a thought and a prayer for the dreadful reputational effects of these climate-fuelled bushfires on the coal industry.
Morrison pointed to an NRA graph which clearly shows an inverse relationship between thoughts and prayers and mass shootings.
Scott Morrison has lamented the fact that no one told him climate change was a thing.
Months of research by Labor stalwarts Craig Emerson and Jay Weatherill have led them to ask leader Anthony Albanese, “have you tried turning it off and on again?”
No government could be so morally bankrupt and pathetic as to throw a dead cat on the table in the middle of a national emergency, could they?
A survey of news articles since the May 18 election provides evidence for all fourteen early warning signs of fascism. This is no hyperbole. Any objective analysis would show the Government is driving Australia down a dark road. We must urgently resist their proto-fascist project and offer a different political vision to engage and inspire the broader community. The alternative does not bear thinking about.
We must offer hope to those hurting in the wake of Saturday’s infuriating result. Alienating the masses and tearing each other apart will get us nowhere.
It may be tempting to draw reactionary lessons from this calamity. These are the lessons of establishment journos and smug politics, and they are lessons we can ill-afford in an age of climate emergency.
From climate crimes to crimes against humanity, from coddling white supremacists to closing Indigenous communities, from attacks on public broadcasters to assaults on media diversity, from cutting funding to schools, hospitals, penalty rates, pensions and community organisations to cutting arms deals with terrorists, from prosecuting whistleblowers to protecting the banks, from its war on civil liberties to its war on the poor, from Islamophobia to homophobia, from rigging the tax system to ruining the NBN, from naked corruption to never-ending corporatism, the fight against extremism compels Australians to give the Coalition an electoral flogging of painful proportions.
A frank assessment of Hawke’s role in tipping the scales in favour of capital is fair enough. Ignoring his many progressive policies is not.
The best time to harness community outrage to demand emergency climate action, i.e. now, is of course not the most convenient time for the Government. Just going to leave this here ready for the time they are willing to have a full and frank conversation about their role in crimes against humanity.
A mining magnate who steals his party name from the 1930s, takes his slogan from a reality TV President, and rips his advertising budget from 800 of his own workers, can do so with reckless abandon because “there’s no limits”. We must change the system which feeds him.
Rupert Murdoch has been poisoning our democracy for decades. It’s time for a united front to offer an antidote.
The familiar awfulness of Australian politics is clearly a curse but the familiarity of the revue itself is a mixed blessing.
Powerful theatre which gives a truer account of our past than much of Australian history.
Spectacular entertainment for lovers of the Disney film.
A beautiful brew of intelligent writing, stimulating critique, and compelling crime drama.
Glorious entertainment which honours international struggles for justice.
Entertaining and playful with moments of exquisite beauty, Three Acts captures the spirit of This American Life.
Powerful performances portray the immense human costs of capitalism.
A fascinating depiction of how human beings try to absolve themselves of wicked deeds.
A diverse, thoughtful and amusing take on freedom under late capitalism.
