    As well as punishing councils who don't hold citizenship ceremonies on Australia Day, Morrison wants to introduce a dress code for ceremonies as well.I wouldn't be surprised if he tried pushing reciting the oath in schools.

    it was once said that patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

    scumo is proving that in spades.

    I understand the impulse for 26/1 because history. I also understand the impulse for not 26/1, because whites can be arseholes, over and over.

    But really Scummo is using patriotism as a distraction for the monumental fuckup of the Murray-Darling River System, abetted by the NSW Govt.

    Honestly, Baaaanaby said today (I can't find the actual quote which is annoying), something like, "If they want rain, they need to go to church."

    Seriously, fuck that guy.

    Untill the planet is fucked up beyond help. Then it's "not my fault it's his fault. Look over there something shiny."

    I actually got one of them last week, for God knows what reason. As I deleted it I can't pass on what gibberish it contained. I was tempted to reply with "fuck off" or something but I just wanted it gone.

    The hell with whatever crowd sold my mobile number to cretins like Palmer, too. That crap really shouldn't be legal.

    Actually the electoral rolls is part of how they get people's numbers. Because political parties are exempt from privacy laws go figure.

    Seems now he sending texts saying that he will ban it them if elected. There is more chance of me saying that rugby union is better than rugby league - this fool has no hope.

    Tasmania is making $7million a day selling power to Victorians during this hot spell.

    Oops - I got that wrong. It is up to $7 million per hour, I suppose that is during the hottest part of the day.

    Which is OK for Tassie as long as they keep an eye on the dam levels and don’t sell too much power.

    A few years back there was a concern that S.A could wind up sitting in the dark because the generating companies could make more money selling to Victoria at times of very high demand than selling locally which wasn't the intent when Labor initially created the national energy grid.

    A couple of years ago Hydro Tasmania made a packet selling power but they let the dams drain down to about 15% which would have been OK of the usual winter rains had come to top them up. Unfortunately the rains did not come and we had to buy power back from the Mainland.

    Only one power company in Tasmania and that is government owned. Because of the uproar about them letting the dams get so low I don’t think they will make the same mistake again.

    I went for my early morning walk and I could not see Mount Wellington due to the thick smoke haze. I could not smell smoke on my side of the river.

    Up near the the Great Lake the town of Miena has been evacuated, while down here in the South, the Tahune Airwalk is being threatened by fire.

    These Clive Palmer ads are a bit much they seem to be everywhere. I don't get his game here, he's got very little chance of being elected and if one person constitutes a party well the system is a bloody joke.

    Oh and when did the Australian people vote him a living national treasure?

    Delusional much?
