That's a funny one Bill. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif Where on earth did you pluck that idea from? http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

I made it up scepo. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif Labor still have some members of Parliament who believe in the Sky Fairy. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif so nothing is going to change .

Poor old Curly is trying hard to buy votes everywhere

Apparently that's working for him scepo.

It would seem that the leftwing Guardian has lost faith in their prefered party - Shorten reminds me of an out of control windup doll - someone needs to remove his key and put him back in the closet before he does any more damage.

Labor has apparently not been able to learn anything new. The difference this time around is that they might get an unwelcome judgment from an electorate that has, and one that expects something better.

"Poor old Curly is trying hard to buy votes everywhere."


You are right Scepo, Billy wants the top job so bad that he will buy votes even if the going looks marginally good, it doesn't matter how sick the voters are or what smell is behind them, a vote is a vote to grubby Billy.

From Bear:
It would seem that the leftwing Guardian has lost faith in their prefered party

"Their preferred party" is actually the Liberals (not the LNP http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif ) Bear, and the Political Editor, Katharine Murphy, ex-NewsCorpse and Fairfax, writes a daily 'puff piece' supporting her dream love interest the agile, innovative and unflappable Brian Trumble.

FDNC members would love her opinion pieces, maybe not the genuflecting towards Trumble, but her attacks on Curly even to the unlikely support of the Greens in preference to Labor, is a sight to behold.

The Guardian is run by a charitable foundation, but like any modern news outlet, it relies on advertising and subscriptions/donations to remain viable.

The Guardian is no different to NewsCorpse in that respect. They control which stories that they cover, how the story is framed, and importantly, which stories are not reported at all.

For instance, rarely do we see an article criticizing Israel.

Rarely do we see an article critical of Malcolm Turnbull's government. They completely missed the Barney Joyce affair. while every other publication was yelling it from the rooftops.

No story about Trump is ever open for comments. Even the Daily Telegraph opens Trump stories for comment.. Different audience, I know. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif

In the U.K. they provided unwavering editorial support for Brexit and Teresa May during the elections. That has changed recently after they realized that they got it wrong.

The Guardian used to be a beacon for international news, and was regarded as 'left wing' because of its support for writers like Robert Fisk and John Pilger, and the publishing of the WikiLeaks files.

It struggles to be seen as a 'centrist' publication, and financial constraints stop it from ever being a 'left wing' publication.
