Is this talk of a Rail Strike making you nostalgic for the ‘70s ?  :|


Let’s add a Petrol Strike and Brewery Strike to the mix.


You’ll never yearn for the good old days age!

Yes I was reminiscing about that on the previous thread.


The Fair Work Commission has just announced that the strike on Monday cannot go ahead.


It was a ridiculous voting process. Text messages were sent out and all those that did not respond were counted as YES for the strike toi go ahead.


That should make the strike illegal for a start.

Yes, it's good to see that the Australia Day awards system has matured in that direction. All excellent recipients of the Australia Day awards, but I particularly like the recognition given to Eric Woo.  What a wonderful, energetic person!  I wonder what Pauline Hanson thinks of him?

Forgot to mention that Michelle Simmons' award has made me read about quantum computers this morning.  Crikey, if this technology can be harnessed and Australia takes a leading role rather than selling out to overseas, then we will really be the clever (and prosperous) country.

Tony Abbott's "razor gang" considered banning anyone under 30 from accessing income support in a radical proposal ahead of the 2014 budget, according to cabinet documents obtained by the ABC.


Thank heavens that this idea was killed before it was born.

No, the Doctor needs to be a male. Although I suppose she would be good at reversing the polarity of the neutron flow.

The Government should cut or withold payments to "parliamentary snobs".  These are the politicians who prefer to sit in their offices and write their biographies or raid the drinks cabinet rather than sitting in the chamber when parliament is in session.

He'll probably turn up on the 7.30 Report in the next few days and lie his way out of this story ... as usual.  "Like any other responsible minister, I was just acting on the advice given to me by senior bureaucrats in my department."   :roll:

I agree, but if one is set up, it is bound to turn around and bite Labor too.

Never set up an enquiry unless you know the result first.


Just ask Nick Greiner.

Have you been following the circus around the classified documents in the second-hand filing cabinet?


What a bloody joke!
