When I saw Stephen Fry in this car in Kingdom, I wondered what it was. I thought it might be a small Rolls Royce or Bentley.

“Facts” about Tony Abbott.

Antony Green's House of Reps Calculator - 2010 Federal Election - ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
Having some fun fantasising about a 10% swing to Labor and seeing the Libs left as a rump of 13 seats in the parliament. Oh joy! No more Abbott.

Very nice… and seemingly cheap. I’d imagine this car is at an age where the price should start to go back up a bit if it’s well looked after.

So, the fabled suspension problems are unfounded according to this.
This is unusual in that a News Limited paper has published an article in favour of the Resources Super Profits Tax and pointing out the twisting of the facts by the Minerals Council of Australia.

Behind the resource rent tax hysteria | David Buckingham | Commentary | Business Spectator
More analysis on the latest Newspoll.
A good poll result for the government. News Corp and The Australian, in particular should be very embarrassed by their failing campaign against Labor. Also, the ABC is becoming more and more tabloid, picking up on the more sensationalist angle of Abbott “closing the gap” on Rudd as preferred Prime Minister. It’s the 2PP result that is the more important and worthy of highlighting.

V8 Supercar driver Mark Skaife calls for speed limit on Victorian freeways to be lifted to 140km/h | Courier Mail
Good call. The ridiculous obsession with an artificially low 100km/h speed limit on a good road like Eastlink or the M1 is more dangerous than a more sensible 130 – 140km/h limit.

Big tick for the Labor Government’s Building the Education Revolution programme. It’s a shame the opposition won’t let the facts get in the way of a good beat up.
Add to this the use of the bcc: field in mass emails to prevent accidental and potentially embarrassing Reply Alls.
More hateful Liberal dirty tricks when it comes to asylum seekers. They really don’t mind the facts getting in the way of getting a few more redneck votes. The Liberals are utterly despicable and ill-named.

God, I hope the ALP retains office. A Liberal government with Tony Abbott as Prime Minister would be a social and economic disaster for Australia.

UNHCR - Asylum Levels and Trends in Industrialized Countries 2009: Statistical Overview of Asylum Applications Lodged in Europe and Selected Non-European Countries

Exposing the myths around asylum seekers.

More rational insight into the RSPT debate.
I don’t get all this negotiation. The Government doesn’t negotiate tax rates with the public, so why do the miners get special treatment?
Thinking of getting one of these.

Good to see these trolls getting caught and dealt with.
A new site to counter the Liberal Party and the big miner’s spin on this important issue.
