Well yes  he is from the same bunch, but, he's not Newman, and it has been some time since then, and well yeah, " same bunch of **** ". It seems some dude up here in the Greens put forward the idea of a public holiday for the Origin. I was sorta contemplating the Greens till I read that little titbit in the CM today. No idea if it's fakenews or not .

One Nation. Fraser Anning, replaces Malcolm Roberts in the senate for ONP. One meeting after, he's apparently quit ONP. Well, he said Pauline kicked him out! So he's now an independent senator and ONP just lost their senate spot.

Just goes to show the level of conceit of contemporary pollies. They're all just too good to read the rule book. Obviously much too busy contemplating the next piece of real estate we would buy them, and of course, along with the decorating of their pollie office, a total brain drain set in.

So. Um. I find I'm in agreement with Cory.

 

He wants to stop abortion on gender grounds from being a thing on the Medicare. Frankly, I'm appalled the gender of the fetus is a reason for an abortion.

I wasn't aware that, in states where it's openly legal, there was the need to give any particular reason.

 

I'd be surprised if things like gender are a particularly common reason, tho'.

Selective ignorance because it's part and parcel of some cultures to not want female babies?

I'd imagine the doc. would want to know the health etc.of the female wanting to terminate and there'd be a need to understand the reason for it, possible complications.

I guess hereditary issues might make some want to specify the gender of the child, With that in mind then I'd be open to being gender specific.

In light of child protection there are so many hurdles to clear for the average person to work in any field that may include minors. None of the checks and balances work one hundred percent of the time which is majorly unfortunate for those needing the help / instruction / care from said 'cleared' adults. And it shows just how appalling the system can be when those chosen to work as assistant electorate officer in the electorate office of Queensland's Child Safety minister Shannon Fentiman, have previously been charged with child porn offenses. And these charges go back a matter of six-ish years, not decades past when lost files, floods or whatever could be blamed. There's a deep-seated lack of care and pride from contemporary pollies with regard to the job they've been chosen to do. QLD has a an abysmal record of child care/ protection. It's really really shameful. To be fair this failure pre-dates the current Gov. but with that said, this Gov. should be so fucking embarrassed allowing this Fentiman women to still be in charge of this port folio. Getting rid of her won't magically fix all the millions of issues, but at least a new person might actually attempt to get in and work at it.

Wealthy parents are ditching private schools it seems. Makes sense, seeing how expensive some of those schools are.

I've always thought of private schools as a waste of money. My parents sent me to one my first year of High school, I hated it and did very poorly. The next year I was in a public school and loved it. which led to a slew of academic qualifications that took me to Uni via the Forces.

 

Cheers

I get the impression the "religious" aspect of some private schools is part of the selection of schools.

Hmm,

 

Quite possibly, the one year I was in that private school, it was boarding, they made us walk to church every Sunday. I'm about as religious as a plank of wood, but I put up with it for the year.

 

Cheers
