    Tasmania Fire Service investigators have announced that the fire in the One Nation truck was mostly likely caused by a discarded cigarette, The police have review CCTV footage and no one was seen running away from the truck.

    I doubt Pauline Hanson will apologise for jumping to conclusions and blaming ‘lefties’.

    You know I don't like or support Pauline but I kind of 'get' she would jump to that conclusion.

    Yeah sure, because lefties want to go find her truck and burn it. Get real.

    I would believe it. Lefties have gone a little crazy of late. Comes from losing every fight they've been in lately...

    She still needs to apologise and admit she was wrong.

    Hanson Apologize that will never happen.

    And blaming the left for a car fire is just being stupid and ignorant.

    I suspect it's more from losing every fight because they try to fight fair against opponents who lie and cheat their way to a win.

    Someone needs to sit down and carefully explain to Queenslanders there aren't 10,000 jobs in the Adani mine, there are ~1500. There are more jobs available in renewables (~5000). The blatant lies have been terrible. And the LNP thought they'd lose, so left a couple of economic boobytraps behind, which they now have to sort themselves. Karma's an... accountant.

    Indeed the boobytraps they set backfired rather well. I predict Morrison won't last the whole term.

    At this stage I'm pretty much hoping for a recession. Might finally break the myth that the Coalition is the better economic manager. Although I'm sure they'll still find a way to blame Labor for it.

    Oh come on of course they will. "Born to rule" is in their blood and nothing is ever their fault.

    Well anything good that happens is their fault. Like the global recovery of the world economy and increasing ore prices. Only bad things aren't their fault.

    It's a regular visit, organised ages ago. It's a non-story, except for conspiracy theorists.

    It's worth pointing out when the date was arranged the Chinese knew what it was... you know, that date nothing happened.

    I have a whole personal story about China, I might share it another time.
