RIP Tommy Ramone. RIP Gavin Jones (http://www.deadlyvibe.com.au/2014/07/gavin-jones-1966-2014/) RIP Deadly Vibe (http://www.deadlyvibe.com.au/2014/07/announcement-vibe-australia/) ABC cuts, particularly Australia Network. For this government, all relationships are about trade. FOFA. "Research by Rice Warner, commissioned by Industry Super Australia, estimates the costs to consumers of a windback of FOFA reforms could be AU$550 million a year." (http://www.smh.com.au/business/fofa-reforms-sell-retirees-short-20140512-385tm.html) MH370 scams. Smallpox in a drawer in a disused storage room. David Hicks made a plea bargain for a non-existent crime in a impotent tribunal. Where to start when there are constant lies across the board? The Australian's 50th birthday today. Praise for The Saturday Paper. Julie Bishop's SMH puff piece. Iron ore is just red dirt. Solving the Middle East crisis by building a big shed. War as a spectator sport. Tony tries to blatantly blackmail Bananaland (http://www.news.com.au/national/tony-abbott-backs-queensland-premier-campbell-newman/story-fncynjr2-1226986660387) Riding roughshod over political norms. Sinkhole on the Gold Coast (http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/sink-hole-closes-gold-coast-highway-20140713-zt65c.html) One whale saved on Gold Coast, but hundreds to be slaughtered by the Faroese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WhalingintheFaroeIslands) What was Tony signalling to Japanese, that we're open for business? Pig Iron Bob rides again. It seems like there might be no windfall from repealing the carbon tax. Clive and the Queensland LNP. Maybe Clive's just doing the biggest payback ever. CORRECTION: 'The Spectator' IS NOT owned by Rupert, but by David and Frederick Barclay. The Australian publication, 'Business Spectator', IS owned by Rupert. Clive and his abuse of Senate staff. PUP office in the National Press Club building. The famous 10 minute Press Club speech was a device. Is Clive the new left wing. Sensible and human things to say on a range of social issues. A classic wet? Ricky Muir thinks Mike Willesee is unethical. Leyjonhelm trading temporary protection visas for marriage equality. Xenophon and Rossi boots. Boots out, warships in. Indonesian election: quick counts, voting irregularities, victory claims, rallies, Prabowo's coalition may be crumbling, Julie Bishop and Prabowo, vested interests behind the scenes, bad polls planted to foment uncertainty. Unemployment rises in Queensland ... thanks to sacking 15,000 public servants and cuts in spending across the board. Sport. Official protest lodged against the sports theme. World Cup Grand Final. Lots of disappointment. Swannies. Harry having a 'mare, but we still love him. Deutschland, Deutschland ... Pro-gambling anti-gambling advertising. Match-fixing dudes in Singapore. Dragonheads are two out of our three audients. Our favourite biter, Luis Suarez, gets GBP75 Million contract with Barca. Maradona is a bitch. Gina is still a fat boob turtle. Waratahs are definitely going to win. Pararoos funding pulled because they might not win. Winners are grinners - Lifters not leaners. We call on Clive to sponsor the Pararoos and Deadly Vibe. Bowls O'Clock. Road trip to Innisfail. Get out of Rockhampton, now. Welcome Laurie. Commonwealth Games. Harshing our vibe.
