    He thinks he”s Australia’s Trump.

    First mistake: Australia’s government is parliamentary, not presidential.

    Pretty much he is delusional. He is very much thinking that he is our Donald trump. Look at his slogans and his style of politics.

    He is calling himself that. There was no vote.

    If he thinks Aussies want a Trump, he is seriously delusional.

    Palmer is only a living national treasure ... as he instructed his staff to vote for him. He doesn't deserve to be on this list.

    I'm sure there's a comparison between the Australian Cricket team and a sleeping kangaroo.

    No bounce perhaps?

    Why is power generation such a complicated cockup in this country?

    You'd think a nation the size of Australia, surrounded by ocean on all sides maintaining its own electricity production would be a matter of importance to any standing government not just selling everything not nailed down?

    That's what I was referring to... Privatisation hasn't quite been the silver bullet that the pollies tell the public it is.

    And the worst part of that is, your average person knew privatisation wouldn't end well. It never has.

    Hope you Victorian and SA peeps are keepin' chill. Our turn tomorrow, apparently.

    We have a phenomenon in Sydney/Central Coast/Newcastle. On certain days, that have been hot and still, in the later afternoon or early evening, a fresh, strong breeze comes roaring through and breaks the temperature. It's called a Southerly Buster.
    One has just arrived. Temperature dropped from 36 to 24 in about half an hour. Marvellous! Better than air con!
