wow!

what a speach!

some straight up, straight talking aussie culture at its finest there...

the sort of straight talking kick up the butt parliment needs - and not just on indigenous issues...

Im sure it will make the partisans uncomfortable... and I wish she left some things out... but that was most impressive

Im glad she brought up the welcome to country thing... i thought she was praising it initially...

sometimes it comes across as cool and well placed... but like most things, tokenistic and mandatory, ...it becomes lame and mundane pretty quick...

and quntas doing it their flights now... abslutely reeks of marketing and mundane over anything else

and, whilst its hardly an original observation...

and, that word 'diversity' now makes me cringe from deep inside...

the 47th parliment truly is quite a diverse one, definitely the most diverse ever, where parliment is finally beginning to represent the true face of australia

from vietnamese refugees to indigenous people from across the spectrum...

..the independent women's club, and the nutty katters and 'poorlines'...

personally, I think its great

lets see what a labourious labor can do with it...

and hopefully not fuck it up, with their oh so whimsical (non existent) 33 % of the vote mandate...

Good speech by Jacinta Price. Such a difficult scenario with indigenous disadvantage, I have no idea on the best way to address the systemic disadvantage and the generational abuse taking place. Big things need to be done. Saying that however, so called tokenism I believe is a start, giving acknowledgement starts a conversation, indigenous round in footy etc. If you disagree fine, but if someone bumps into you and keeps walking with saying anything you get pissed off, if they immediately say sorry you feel better. That's just tokenism or in other words manners.
What is happening in schools and education in Qld anyway is positive
As far as PH and her racist attitude goes. Bigotry is like cancer and should be cut out as soon as it appears. Howard initially gave this individual oxygen to appeal to that particular fringe, and now she still is there. Fortunately most Australians see her for what she is, a grifter playing on humanity's worse impulses.
What is one thing positive she had ever contributed to the national debate?

Im on the fence about an indigenous body advising parliment, but I reckon price raises good points

and even though she didn't say it expliicity, i dare say she sees it as the same old establishment aboriginal crew that enabled many problems to fester just consolidating their power

so yeh, a direct challenge to her agenda...

and price, a direct challenge to their agenda...

all about power... bring on the challenge i say!

...challenges...

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nit.com.au/full-list-record-number-of-i...

and, interestingly, for those that love quotas... (the left) ...aboriginal representation in parliment has already exceeded the percentage of population...

that's all good in my book, and gives some credence to price's points

no mention of gas / energy crisis and housing crisis. over plays the 30% protection (also fails to mention lab states responsible for massive land clearing - hello QLD) and completely ignores the recently announced overhaul of "your future, your super" review. fails to outline how labour will recover the 450GL (tip - it requires buybacks) remaining for the MDBA.

Ok sorry was being glib.
I really don't think policy wise Labor are going to be radically different in the issues you raised. Fact is they cannot be as Labor have different factions, and ideological internal battles going on. IE no new coal mines. Greens can push for it but won't happen. Labor are very flawed also. However in saying that I believe with our 2 party system of preferential democracy (with all its faults) they are the party which will have a greater positive impact for Australia and Australians. Some small changes can have a huge effect, seen this already with the Witness K fiasco..

Why would anyone even consider according specific rights to any particular group in our constitution? Who’s looking good for a nod in the 'second' amendment? Don’t stop me now! In the age of communitarianism, every identity group should have a voice.

Get your ears over Slate or the Daily Wire. Your eyes over Fox News or CNN. Supreme super heroes or supreme super villains! Get a load of the rampant destruction/nation saving remedial action these amendment busting Supremes wrought during the end of term third act frenzy. Bam! Kapow!

I rather suspect that there’s a puffed up, self important, megalomaniac sitting or aspiring High Court judge or two somewhere out there in the Lucky Country. One who's watched the RBG doco a hundred times, or one who goes to bed every night reading Clarence Thomas dissents. Licking their lips at the prospect of the 'first' amendment.

Here's future Justice Canavan. And look, there's Justice Hanson-Young! Egged on by their respective cheer squads within the perforce hyper partisan media and political and education classes.

We watched the trailer for this type of horror movie - starring Chief Justice Barwick - back in 75. I reckon we’ve seen enough. Don’t need to start popping the popcorn for the gold class full feature.

I’d prefer we left this portal closed. That we didn’t enter this multi-verse. Wherein we'd officially confirm our status as the 51st state. Replete with it's black robed caped crusaders. The parliament’s bad enough and more than bloody enough as a law making body. Let them sort it out.

Next week's News...Kick Start the Boats
22nd June Home Affairs Clare visits Sri Lanka after Oz intercepted 4 vessels
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2022/06/23/cyrt-j23.html
Some (23) passengers were indeed taken to Christmas Island then flown home!
https://www.skynews.com.au/australia-news/politics/australian-border-for...

June : Oz caretakers celebrate restart of Reffo Invitational Honeymoon Cruises to Australia!

Opposition : "Disgusting, Vile, Puny & Pissweak Labor refuses to [ Share our Boats ]"
or Sounded a lot like that!

4 Sri Lankan boats totaling 125 pass/crew were turned back from Oz during Honeymoon Period!
See above...during Early June change of Government...

Aussie Welcome Mat (vs) Sri Lanka Reffo Exodus (Choose this one first!)
India are mopping up the Reffos...many in similar number & vessel size!
Many vessels are sailing daily...to Indian Beaches.
Thru Covid...India has taken in 100k's of reffos.
240k Sri Lanka > 20k Myanmar > 5k Afghanistan > Thousands from Tibet..
Malaysia also takes in Syrian Reffos....& so on...the area is abuzz!
Sub continent takes in half a million Reffos without a brow beaten...

Oz goes into meltdown with 4 or 5 posh skips of 100 Sri Lankan Yuppies...
Sri Lankans affording these sleek VIP cruises to far off modern world are just that.
These are wives & kids of educated political classes at high risk of being tortured / Kidnapped.
We know this is the model operating from Sri Lanka into India...VIPs sending Females / Kidz first.
Mostly in orderly fashion on half decent seaworthy vessels...none are chancing beat up junks!
Females are aware & know their rights to seek asylum...Rich/Poor no matter, all are treated equal.

Don't be surprised if Oz accepts legitimate Women's claims on the down low...under the radar!
Politics involve UK / Canada / India / Oz ...we will see these nations addressing these Reffos.
tbb has done some light searches on this topic but knows there is a missing charter of sorts!
Question : Does our Commonwealth bind us (Oz) to accommodate reffos from fellow states?
Kinda like NATO / EU must defend & secure each other as one...Our Commonwealth likewise!
So if Sri Lanka needs Oz or Commonwealth assist then we gotta lend a hand...sounds about right!

Albo might need to pick up the tab as part of some founding Commonwealth Agreement...

Crew are smart enough to see that Commonwealth is crumbling & Games need a Headline Act!
Sri Lanka can't be cast aside as Dog's Vomit while competing in the Queen's Games!
Also reckon some clever lawyer has sussed this & waved the Flag for Reffo Games to begin!
Recall 2018 Goldie Stolenwealth Games ..kinda similar StolenWealth Theme (Again!)
Word is that the recent Oz Cricket Tour only went ahead to donate ticket sales for Games Teams.
This was the only way Sri Lanka could send teams to UK Games.
https://www.dailysabah.com/sports/sri-lanka-athletes-defy-crisis-to-fulf...

Explains why Sri Lankans are setting sail...& maybe, just maybe, slowly gaining entry?
Reckon these new clever VIPs are reciting a very clever Commonwealth clause!
"I'm a citizen of the Queen's Empire...get me outta here!" or something similar!
Maybe just maybe why Albo is staying Mum...on Queen's account to keep this hushed up!

Just saying that Commonwealth has obligations to secure our fellow members! All say Aye!
Should that include the murky world of People smuggling...(Our Queen rules the Waves!)

Please, all you people threatened by woke-ness. Do you consider yourself a believer in equality, diversity and a fair go? Do you frown upon intolerance, injustice and ignorance? Then congratulations, your woke...or on yr way to it!
Now, trigger me with your microaggressions while I virtue signal my blessed position on transgenderism...
