Truth stager than fiction time:

The Bathurst 12 Hour is on this weekend with very little publicity.


I almost missed it and was lucky I googled to see when it was.


Do the organisers want to keep it secret I wonder ?

I was thinking along similar lines.

It looked like the publicity people were asleep at the wheel.

I hope they do a better job next year.

I think it gives an indication of the man's character.


If his wife can't trust him, why should the electorate ?

Don't know. She was a former employee of his, so maybe there was some undue influence there, but the whole thing is pretty tacky, like Hawke throwing over Hazel for Blanche.

" The electrically powered EHang 184 can carry a single passenger weighing up to 100 kilograms for a 23-minute flight at sea level at a speed of 100 kilometres per hour. " 


I wonder how long before they produce a bigger two seat version?  :)

I'd normally say a persons private life shouldn't be used against him, but in this case he seems e having some sort of midlife crisis. Not sure he's fit for an important job like Deputy PM.
