Schitty?

Or shitty?

PS when I just typed in "shitty", it autocorrected to "Scotty".

Which reminds me to ask where Paul is...with his Scumbo observations, now that we have  a 'Not Politics Thread' again?

:lol:

I'm still lurking in the background.

Lots of midweek game to ref before the end of the season. 

Tonight is one of my only night's off due to a forfeit.

I note that the Scumbo wants to build a gas fired power station.

Personally,  I'd support Thorium powered nuclear reactors for baseload power as their waste has short half lives of about 70 years and there is no chance of a meltdown. Plus there has has to multiple reactors meaning lots of jobs instead of centralized. The other point is that Australia has 20% of the world's Thorium.  And the only reason the world has uranium nuclear instead of Thorium nuclear was that the US Govt wanted the easy way to plutonium for weapons

Glad you had a chance to contribute tonight!

That's an interesting perspective, Paul...and not one I've really heard about before!

You need to go to the Climate Change and Alternative Energy Thread. Middy is VERY active there.

The NSW Govt plan is to raise the Warragamba Dam wall by many meters. 

And for those who don't know, Warragamba Dam has to spill recently. In fact, WaterNSW has had to release water to lower the level by at least 1 metre in case of flooding through major storms. Only 6 months to cyclone season when most water is collected in Warragamba.

But yet again, the govt is in the purse of the developers to reduce the amount of land that could potentially be flooded. Hence the reason the NSW govt wants to raise the Warragamba Dam wall by many meters.

And here is why they shouldn't

You just ignore the corruption issues being raised and personally attack him.

Your comment made me wonder what the Comments after the article were saying.

Wow...they were rightly supportive to a huge extent from the dozen or so I read!

Heaps if older people saying their kids got them onto watching Friendlyjordies, and they admired his work.

This is how I knew of him...plus thru Goat.

The guy ...and this article...may have turned a new demographic in his direction, and in the direction of YouTube commentary. Lol

 

PS One compared him to Jonathan Pie. :yahoo:

Woke cancel culture isn't it?

https://www.theguardian.com/law/2020/sep/20/miranda-devine-apologises-for-quaden-bayles-tweets-amid-defamation-case

It's woke political correctness gone mad, when you can't even falsely accuse a disabled aboriginal boy and his motther of being liar and stir up a bunch of online hate, without the loony left suing you for defamation. Surely Miranda Devines free speech and right to spread racism and hate should not be impeded. What would your Jonathan Pies have to say?

It is good that she has sincerely apologised, only the very cynical would think that her apology is related to the impending legal action

Whatever happened to him. Probably having trouble making videos now that he can't blame Corbyn for everything.

He's the human personification of the word "but".

HAHAHA 3:45 he just can't help himself. He's too obvious that you can predict what he's about to say before he says it.

I bet they never paid the little people whose land they acquired 10 times the value.

The question ask is

"How much money have the family who own the Leppington Pastoral Company donated to the Liberal Party"

My take is that the Liberal (Conservative) Party have redistributed federal government money to their party. If this has occurred it is truly corruption.

That's what the Parakeelia rort was. LNP sets up a company they own called Parakeelia, that provides software to LNP offices about their constituents data, they get charged $2500, which is then claimed back from the taxpayer as a office expense. It was as blatant as a drug dealer washing their cash through a pub poker machine.
