For when one interesting things thread isn't enough.
Ha VL goes from snoring peacefully in his kennel to all slobber and teeth at the end of his chain if anybody mentions the Rword but is all catholic school boy about ....
Cottaging? Its not my thing, but nothing wrong with consensual.
Chests ya reckon Patrick? Not really your forte hey!!! I'm way beyond booked out these days, endless streams of pleading surfees with crippled backs, knees, shoulders, ad infinitum, and of course your well and truly under developed lot. Come on down, I'll put you on the waiting list, join the queue, love to have a laugh at ya!!!!
But, aaahh yes, the ship jumpin' rats. Young ('watch it... I got me a belt I 'ave aaayyyee') Andrew, its making sense now, this recent angling of yours. Ya dude mmmaaayyyteee that aint no favourite mmmaaaayyyttee... or is he... who knows... anyway, he was forced to let it slip out, to get it off his 'chest', about the 'kick 'em till they twitch', 'heavy bag', 'scone crushin and mashin reflex jab ' knock ya block orf aaayyyeee stuuupe... aaaayyyeee mmaaaayyyteee... stand up game. And so of course, keeping in tune with your dude mmmmaaayyytteee, you were then forced to spill your guts about your love of having... a well, bloke grapple... so to speak, with ya belt, as you were just gettin' it out there... off ya chest... that you got the ground game covered. As, in ya mmmaaayyyteee that aint no favourite mmmaaaayyyttee's case, you too suddenly, although a self confessed late bloomin' one, quickly swillnutted from a gronk and late bloomed into a bad boy, shreddin' surf legend, with a bad arse grapplin' and ground game!!!! Yikes!!!
So when ya joined arms with ya dude, but just a gronk mmmaaayyyteee, that aint no favourite mmmaaaayyyttee... well... who knows... is he... who quickly swillnut morphed into an all Asian, anti camp, anti exposure ledge, when yas joined arms to clear the country of those 'despised stinkin', lousy immigrants', (zennies lot), which one of ya torped ya other maaaayyyteee, that immigrant, out of the place!!!??? Remember him???!!! That immigrant mmmmaaayyyttte of yours that ya spilled ya guts about, you remember, the poor immigrant stuck in this dreamland, who, having been educated, couldn't, in ya dude blowies lingo, get a decent, proper job off of an ozzie!!! But who ya screeched was being forced to live like a low life, crappy, piece of shit, mere, poxy, useless, shit head taxi driver, whilst stealin' food from ozzies mouths, and taking their houses out from under them, forcing realty up.. ad infinitum... in the dream land????!!! So in the end, who's ship did ya jump to, young Andrew... ya sneaky rat!!! Which one of ya drop punted ya mmmmmaaaayyteee out on his arse (not to mention zennie!!!) Young ship jumpin' Andrew???? Which one did ya ship jump to, ya sneaky rat!!!

What’s the feeling in your hood on the new Japanese PM Yoshihide Suga?
Seems like he’s walking into a tough gig?
I'm a little removed from politics here Eta, but I take an interest on a local level.
I quite like Suga, he was a good foreign minister and seems quite measured. I think he'll do ok. I don't think he is/was as hawkish as Abe but he's not shy at putting Japan first.
I guess we'll have to wait and see.
I think ‘measured’ is going to be a useful trait in the months and years to come.
Zen, how long have you lived in Japan again?
Do you vote there?
Do you vote here?
Been here 15 years unbelievably.
No, I'm ashamed to say I don't vote here. I used to vote in every election back home religiously but haven't since I've been here.
So, I guess I should check myself when commenting on Oz politics.
Well, voting is compulsory here.
Imagine if it wasn't.
I wonder why the Libs (and the right in general) are the ones that occasionally, yet routinely, fly the flag to change this state of affairs...?
Interesting stuff... Orcas in the Mediterranean “attacking” boats. They’ve probably just had enough of humans.https://www.insider.com/orcas-ramming-boats-in-portugal-spain-unusual-di...
"A crew member of a 46-foot delivery boat described being surrounded by nine orcas that rammed the boat for an hour, causing it to spin 180 degrees and the engine to shut down."
One for the "they're all the same/hardcore neoliberal" brigade?
Sounds like very expensive snacks.
Please Stunet give me an ignore button for Talking Turkey, Shatners Basoon, Dale Cooper, Factotum, Pupkin, and any new fake profile he decides to create.
Party pies, sausage-rolls, mini Vol au Vents?
An ascendant China really is a worry.
"Chinese Australians scared to speak out for fear family members in China will be targeted, paper says"
Andrew, what is Labor's position on all this?
Dunno mate, throw me a bone.
Surely if you're part of #teambartholomew you've gotta be across the briefs?
Otherwise you're heading into VEEP SNAFU territory!
Even Gary Walsh has to be up to speed.
(you may have to google)
Surely there's a better photo than that.
Looks like he's barbecuing alone.
China Matters is a publicly funded think tank which was previously very much pro-China.https://www.crikey.com.au/2019/12/19/china-matters-taxpayer-funding-fore...
As this line of thinking became less agreeable to the government they started to lose their funding. Sounds like they have decided to hold onto their lucrative positions.
Not to say that the allegations are not true but it helps to put their reports in the context of their willingness to follow the current government line. Who knows, they might be pro China again by this time next year if our relations thaw.
Nice links Blowfly, paints a clearer picture.
There ya go https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWxAarluK8s I thought this was interesting and somewhat humorous
Finance and monetary policy is pretty much all Chinese to me Facto. What I believe is the situation here is that even as a proportion of GDP, Japan has one of the highest debt ratios in the world, but unlike other countries, the majority of that debt is 'in house'. Also, Japan has huge foreign currency reserves, low interest and almost full employment. There's actually a labour shortage here with the Japanese government going about it in a half arsed way to attract more women into the workforce and begrudgingly import unskilled labour. The Japanese are huge savers too and there is a peoples bank administered by Japan Post of which 99% of people have an account. I believe that holds billions if not trillions of cash reserves too.
Japan is a very benevolent country and unlike their neighbour, don't engage in debt trap diplomacy.
I think it will be business as usual under Suga.
Sorry, I wish I could give you more of an insight into your article of which it deserves but I can't speak with any authority on matters of money. On a personal note, I'm doing alright and have weathered the covid storm quite well (touch wood). I haven't had to rely too much on the gov., I paid my staff for a couple of months out of my own savings as I didn't want to borrow the money back. As it stands I was eligible for quite a nice little business grant which pretty much negated what I'd spent anyway. So, plugging along here I guess.
