    There are everywhere. TV, radio and on road signs. I hope he fails big time.

    I mute them as soon as I see them - plus he is getting sued by Twisted Sister for using one of their songs in his campaign.

    And is likely to lose!!!!

    Because I am asthmatic I am confined to the indoors as there is a great deal of smoke over Hobart though the major fire is in the South West. 34C at the moment.

    A great shame to see model and actress Annalise Braakensiek appears to have taken her own life, made more tragic by the fact she was recently an ambassador for RUOK. Yes, very good looking, but she was also fun and funny (her turns in Fat Pizza were pretty good) and it's just so sad when people feel they have no recourse but to do this.

    I kind of knew the name but not the face. So when the story came on the news it was kind of sad because I knew the things she had been doing in the past and TV and stuff.

    It really pains me that people feel that bad that this is the only out they have.

    Oh did anyone see this?

    What a day in Australian politics - there is a new extreme far right party (from Fraser Anning) and it's been reported that Clive Palmer is sending unsolicited text messages out to Australians.

    Bring on the election, so I can put these loonies last.

    The Nationals will take issue with that name.

    Though the libs can't say much - they've got form for that sort of crap unless people have forgotten about spam phone calls from the lying rodent back in 2007.

    There are some 177000 words in the English Language and yet political parties seem to hover around the same words when naming their own party usually around 30 to 50 combinations of the same words.

    See: Palmer's United Australia Party. Hanson also tried it with Pauline's United Australia Party. Both were unrelated to the original United Australia Party.

    What is it with Queensland and far right micro parties? Is it sunstroke?
    Hanson, Palmer, Katter and now Fraser Anning. It's just that Liberal who created the Australian Conservatives party, whose name I don't recall. (Good going! Way to increase your profile!)

    Maybe they can unite with Corey Bernardi's party and be the Conservative Right LNP.

    That’s who I was thinking of. Leave the government, drop off the radar.
