Clean up the Sharia rubbish… standard

Letter to the Editor 16.9.14 Clean up the Sharia rubbish from of our own back yard, before we clean it up in others’. When I hear that Mr Abbott has sent us to war again in the Middle East against extremists and terrorists – I can’t help but think of the wise advise my grandmother gave. “Clean up the rubbish in your own back yard, before you try to up the rubbish in others.” Every one knows that the extremists and terrorists end game is to impose a brutal Sharia culture on the rest of the world, including Australia.

PUP Senator Jacqui Lambie no lap-dog standard

SO FAR, PUP Senator Jacqui Lambie has been her own worst enemy in politics. She told the Prime Minister he needed to take a “bucket of cement and harden up”. She talked about a possible “Chinese invasion”. And she joked that she is looking for a man with “loads of cash and a package between their legs”.

People were listening to Lambie, and they liked what they heard. They wanted her to stop talking about whipper-snippering her bikini line and abusing the Prime Minister, but they also saw her as a very welcome breath ...

Tasmania’s Great RET Rip Off standard

7.9.14 Tasmania’s Great RET Rip Off “The Australian RET Scheme is good for Tasmania – right? Wrong! After this week’s briefing from Tas – Hydro during the latest Senate sitting, and the research carried out by the Parliamentary library*, it’s clear that the mainland RET scheme rips off more than $1.1B from Tasmania each year.

So why are we missing out on the other 95%, or more than $1.1B of possible Australian RET credits? This is an important question that the federal Liberal ...

Letter to the Editor 7.9.14 Lambie counter’s Labor lies re: Injured Veterans’ Children Payments, School Kid’s Bonuses, Low Income Super Contribution and Income Support Bonuses   The Labor party feels a little bit irrelevant. So for pure political gain and to cause mischief, the Labor Party has raised unnecessary alarm and spread some nasty lies about the loss of Injured Veterans’ Children Payments, School Kid’s Bonuses, Low Income Super Contribution and Income Support Bonuses. It’s now time the facts were heard about these family payments. Last week Palmer United Senators struck a compromise and voted for legislation, that not only abolished the hated mining tax, boosted our economy and created jobs – but we also stopped Tony Abbott from taking the ...
