    come on @~thehung.. unless Fenn or nickeax comes in with the goods, it looks like you'll have to give up your second artiste and song ... I mean since you seem a tad against the idea of google, I'm not gonna magic-up the answer any time soon

    how crap is this government ?

    I mean really ?! These 'powerful' people cannot learn or be persuaded to think more objectively about the environment their business will affect unless they get a mostly taxpayer funded exclusive holiday ... talk about fucking precious and one of the biggest cons put out by our Government yet .

    how crap is this government ?

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-14/great-barrier-reef-foundation-snorkelling-trip/10117660 " Within weeks of learning it would receive a grant worth nearly half a billion dollars, the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Foundation treated mining and banking executives to a weekend of snorkelling and sunset drinks. " " Key points: Some of Australia's biggest companies pay $20,000 to the join the Great Barrier Reef Foundation's "Chairman's Panel" About 75 per cent of that money goes towards saving the reef, rest goes to working holiday trip to Hamilton Island Federal Labor says donations should go towards saving the reef and not "making donors happy" " The "Chairman's Panel Weekend" at a luxury resort on Hamilton Island was billed as a way for executives to hear directly from scientists and experts working to save the reef. But the trip also included accommodation and meals at the expensive Qualia Resort, trips to yacht clubs and guided snorkelling tours." " Attendance was only available to the affiliates who paid the $20,000 foundation membership fee, including BHP, JP Morgan, Rio Tinto, Shell, AGL, Commonwealth Bank, Deutsche Bank, Boral Limited and many other companies. " " The foundation set 25 per cent of that fee aside to fund the Hamilton Island trip, rather than ensuring all of it was spent on projects to improve the reef " "A GBR Foundation spokeswoman said not all executives went on the trip and that they had no say in what projects the foundation funds. "Costs associated with this are fully paid for via their membership fees and no taxpayer dollars, grants or other donations received by the GBRF are used." " The GBR Foundation has charitable status, which means the majority of the membership fee is tax-deductible. "

    [ and this ^^ is why not being able to quote your full post can be a painful exercise ] Go for it Nich. If you want to do stuff to improve conditions then have at it ... The half a dozen or so bods that comprise this new group will need to spend a goodly amount of the half billion on premises. staff, supplies, etc. in order for them to do whatever it is Malcy thinks them capable of doing differently to the established groups already set up and running. And given the cost's of office space and fit outs suitable for this esteemed group of individuals, the amount of money actually left over to use on the good works will be very much reduced. These pre-existing groups can take the money and use it on it's desired purpose . It seems to me Malcy is not using his already paid for Government properly. They are there because they were chosen as supposedly capable of understanding where best our tax dollars need to go. Why pay private individuals again to do a job that we are already paying people for ? It seems like a huge waste. And I can only surmise that Malcy has chosen this path because he doesn't know how to make his Government do it's job

    Do own many things that others wouldn't?

    My world is mostly store bought. Some of it bought new and some bought 'pre-loved' with that, there is one or two bespoke pieces. I'd say that pretty much identifies with this time period.

    Yeah the 'how it got there' bit is a good-un, too right :) The thing is this group of bizness men have pretty much been given half a billion dollars of tax payers money to go and act like some wunnerful-phylanthropic-dudes-doin'- great-things-for-the-survuval-of-this-great-cuntry ! Now if that half a billion came out of their bizness profits and they'd all got together to use this money to offset some of the consequences of their bizness's practice on this land and ocean and it's people, then I'd hail this group as fine, ethical, individuals; a group thinking of the bigger picture for the country as a whole and not just their profit margins. But that's not the case.
