What's what might have left the building.

So here's the new location for the events and personalities that you think may elicit an interest from others.

Or just anything that makes you raise an eyebrow.

Maybe because one was a spontaneous act of rage by an individual without any precedent by fellow ideologues that accounted for a single death , whilst the other was a premeditated and studiously designed mass murder that is the latest in a long , long string of incidents that account for THOUSANDS of death each year and is a global threat based on eradicating anyone that doesn't ascribe to a narrow set of religious dogma that offends everything that a civilised person should believe in.

Long sentence , huh ?

or maybe its because there is more political capital to be had in focusing on islamic terrorists and not born and raised American terrorists.

@blowin, did you see 4corners last week on the rise of white nationalism in Germany? Made some valid points about people's natural concerns about so many immigrates flowing into the country but also highlighted concerns on the rise of white nationalism and neo nazis including the use of explosives and fire bombing refugee houses and those of their supporters. Interesting the local police were initially very slow to act and when charges were laid they were on the minor (misdemeanour) scale but eventually the national anti terrorism squad took over the cases and all offenders now face many decades behind bars for terrorism offences if proven guilty.

iview if you missed it.

Didn't see it .

I'll try and check it out. Not on a Friday night though.

That'll be home made pizzas , a bottle of wine and a watching that old flick " The Commitments " about the Irish Blues band.

Never realised that Penny Wong had nailed her colours to the mast already.

Only slightly less odorous than the poor , victimised Sam Dastyari. Or that paragon of non negotiable idealism , Bob Carr.

Need any other reason to kick Labor to the Kerb ?

They do realise that China is an unwavering communist dictatorship don't they ?

But , but .....Trump is single handedly destroying democracy. As the Chinese bury it with a benign smile.

Cultural exoticism is so now , baby !

And never malign , obviously.

Haha, love those Freudian slips!

Odious/odorous/odoriferous/onerous/obnoxious - I'm sure they all fit one way or the other!

Labor going for broke in their desire to display total lack of self awareness.
