    I still call Australia home

    That's why people like me are in such high demand. Different genes to add to the shallow pool..... FKT

    People like Meli would run crying to the UN about cruel & unusual punishment though. Plus she & her Greens friends would complain about the destruction of a pristine wilderness environment. FKT

    That is true, why should you care - few do. I'm happy to be overlooked. If it weren't for Bass Strait this place would be overrun by refugees from Victoria and real estate prices would go up. All you bastards with boats would want your own moorings and people like me & Olaf Hart wouldn't be able to own as many as we wanted. God forbid I actually have to learn how to anchor a boat. The point is, though, in Tasmania's case it would make more sense to abolish all the local councils and have the State Govt run everything. There's only half a million people after all. Or contract it out to Brisbane City Council on a renewable 5 year basis - hard to see how they could do a worse job and at least they seem to be able to run a half-decent public transport system. FKT

    Funny you should say that - I have the wood fire going as I type this. Yesterday was 28C, today - somewhat less. Don't have to boil the rainwater though, the bird shit adds a piquant flavour that has to be appreciated. FKT

    No problems. We can always re-commission Sarah Island. Or better still, ship them all to Macquarie Island. FKT

    Come on, the answer to that is bleeding obvious. The failed Labor politician/groupie who gets appointed to be El Presidente will be better off. I'm certain that the beloved Lord Kevin of Queensland would allow himself - reluctantly, of course, in the public interest - to be drafted. FKT

    Waste of time even discussing it then. Stipulated that for the most part they are obsolete and inefficient, not to mention occasionally quite corrupt (not that local councils are any better, quite the contrary). Point is this is a Federation of States. Eliminating them would involve - at minimum - a referendum. Good luck getting *that* passed. No way the smaller States would support it - it was the main reason the Senate was set up with equal representation for States regardless of population. Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane have the population to outvote the rest of the country. FKT

    So which layer of Govt would run Tasmania? Given the total population is less than Brisbane City Council. FKT

    Dammit - this is another one of those rare occasions that I agree with you. The only thing wrong with a lot of Aussie blokes marrying Filipina, Thai or whoever bar girls is, the *AUSSIE* is an arsehole who shouldn't be allowed near any woman. Not all by any means, probably only 20% or so, but that's still a lot. Probably about the same number of women who are just after a free ticket. One dickhead shot his ex last year down here because she left him. OTOH a man over the hill has a Thai wife, set her up with satellite TV back in the day so she could watch stuff in her native language, takes her back for regular visits home, has her extended family out here. Dunno what her background was, don't care, it works for them. FKT

    As I said, numeracy isn't your strong point. That figure you list above is out by 3 orders of magnitude. But hey, that's about the standard for lefties wanting to spend public money, so I'm sure nobody here will be surprised. FKT

    FAIR Act to Reform Asset Seizure Laws

    Sure - after you're convicted in a court of law and the magistrate/judge applies a penalty they consider appropriate. Not just some law official confiscating stuff and forcing you to court to get it back. We don't attribute crimes or criminal intent to property (*). Do try to follow the dots. FKT (*) well most people don't but the anti-gun brigade seem convinced to the contrary.

    Absolutely nothing like your RICO laws and if you can't tell the difference, that's not my problem. FKT

    We both know she won't answer that. I remember one of Turnbull's finest moments - crying when his beloved republic referendum went down in flames. Yet despite that loss, Meli seems to think more Aussies were heartbroken over that event than not. But numeracy has, as demonstrated many times, never been her strong point. FKT

    But if I meet a Filipina in a bar in Sydney or Brisbane, that's different, right? FKT
