    Has editing died ?

    Probably victim to cost-cutting. Newspapers are dead, just that nobody's gotten through to the fogies that still buy the stupid things. Online news is a volatile product, as in once the new content rolls in the old stuff is like 3 day old prawns and nobody gives much of a shit about it. At least on the positive side, the journo's haven't taken the path of just writing stories like a 12 year-old would compose a TXT message on the phone.

    What's on your mind?

    By the looks of it, Foxtel Go is only available for existing subscribers, ie ones paying the set monthly fee for their services. I'd just like the adhoc approach. Don't much give a crap about ongoing TV series and get my share of docos and other stuff elsewhere. I just want things like the odd boxing match and AFL/NRL matches that don't make it to FTA.

    What's on your mind?

    If Foxtel are so desperate for money, then why can't they allow adhoc paid streaming of sporting events? On average there's a football game or 2 every week that's not on FTA and I'd not mind viewing and paying a few bucks to do so. It could potentially earn them extra millions and cost SFA to provide. * and when I say "streaming" I mean proper streaming to a computer or smart TV/blackbox device. Not that shitty phone one that's Mpeg-1 quality and limited to 7 inch screens.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    If it actually happens in this timeframe it'd be really nice but I sorta doubt it...

    how crap is this government ?

    All this aside, congratulations due to Joe Sixpack (the Aussie public) for not forgetting past history. Though returning to surplus has been a right exercise in chain dragging but if Shorten had won I doubt it would happen before the late 2020s.

    Penny Wong is an even more surefire way to lose. She seems to turn any disagreement into a conflict where she's the victim being discriminated against. We had that bullshit from Gillard enough, no more thanks.

    From the comments in that previous link - so true: " The Greens are unelectable because only 15% of the richest and poorest people can afford them."

    Kimmo very conspicuous by his absence - do you reckon he got arrested?

    Even bigger Palmer laff - Jaquie Lambie (Senate ind, Tas) might just scrape over the line, and if she does it'll likely be on Palmer Senate preferences which means his entire spend of $80 million would have been not for nothing but for her benefit.

    Clive Palmer despite his Apollo program ad budget looks to have under 2% of the Senate vote in NSW, falling behind the Shooters Party and even Fred Nile.

    Hurry up! Bad sport Shorten must be grasping at straws, really he should have made the concession speech half an hour ago. Meanwhile I'm wanting to have a shower before midnight.

    He's likely to win in his own right and any perceived blood on his hands will be gone which takes away any justification for someone to take a stab at him. If Dutton had won that previous challenge I suspect we'd have been looking at a Labor landslide.

    I don't mind Albanese now having seen him in commentary and informal chat situations on TV - but Shorten just shits me. He's been nothing but a whinger from the moment he took the reins. The navel-gazing if thorough in any way should point to his negativity and lack of substance with his own ideas and policies. But, Labor stench is still Labor stench whoever is running their show, so if they choose someone who's not the best for the job (ie most likely to win next time) then who am I to complain?

    i see dead people

    Quentin Pongia earlier today aged 48. He was a key part of their (most recent) 1994 Grand Final success. https://www.raiders.com.au/news/2019/05/18/vale-quentin-pongia/

    ABC seem to be using a totally different algorithm to the others, calling seats way earlier - but whatever way you look at it, for the last 45 minutes it's looked like a foregone conclusion. No Labor, not likely even in a minority form with what would be an unpalattable alliance. The question that remains re that lot is will it be Albanese or Plebersek as the next leader.
