I don't know this is great idea given rhe chances our biosecurity being as dodgy as it is

Just more fruit picked waay too early and 'treated' to be safe for the consumer, on our supermarket shelves.

I could probably count on one hand the number of mangos I had this past season. As yummy as they may be, keeping the sugar content down

is a more prominent desire for me.

 

Given how many biosecurity issues we've had in Australia importing 200 tonnes of mangoes, guaranteed some fruit flies will get out and attack our native mango crops.

 

Well yes. But you know, I would think after the banana fiasco/s I'm sure our lot have a bit of experience dealing with the shit that is let in ...

hope so anyway.

 

 

What I've learnt from how we handled that is we aren't capable to dealing with it in a timely manner.

We hit the panic button when the horse has bolted.

 

Of course. Because some idiotic fools think it's silly to use precautions. And well geez just think of the job created with having to eradicate the infestations.

Just like Africanised bees, and fire ants.

OH yeah! Sarcasm is hard enough to pick out sometimes, and that's as subtle as a hand grenade. For all that people seem to think they look childish, emoticons serve a purpose!

I think that if Larissa is all geared up to bring bub into parliament for nourishment, then any of the pollies should just bring a picnic basket in for their nourishment needs.

Hey I'd love them just have picnics so they don't do any work so they don't push through policies we don't want.

I thought the bond of feeding one's young was an exercise best done in a space of calm. A park, even a cafe I thought would be more conducive to a

healthy digestion of nourishment. ... Also how much focus is she really giving to the job we're all paying her for ? ;) ... there's a time and a place for most things really.

She has a very supportive partner and breast pumps are a 'thing' too ... imo she's depriving her partner of his bonding time with his child.

"... He's a fixer, (Malcy) who snaps on the Marigolds and wades into the reeking, grime-encrusted political imbroglios of the past — even those on his own side — with an industrial-strength rubbish bag and a smile on his face..."

 

I wouldn't call him a "fixer" as Anabelle does. I'd call him a pollie ( finally, but that's no compliment ) with no new ideas.

I'm not sure either ;) and neither it seems is the AFP. What a screwed-up-piece-of-smelly-festering-turd is this crap ?!

The sons eyes are set waaay too close together for my liking, and as yet I haven't seen a pick of the sister, not a one ! Dad looks shonkey in his trendy rectangular

grey-tinted glasses too :P ... Seriously this story is far too OTT to be real, and yet it is. The list of goods and monies accrued is fucking outrageous.

Aawf with their heads !! ... the sheer volume of their supposed theft is extra-fucking-ordinary. I suppose for the family it's a good thing their crime did not come to light in a

less 'civilised' country

 

edit: just to say I have now visited my abc news and have now seen a pic of the sister ... she is not thwarted with such closely set eyes

So nice how the most prolific tax dodgers are the ones who are most able to pay them in the first place.
