Nice work by SMH’s Ben Grubb, who took Telstra to task over being able to see his own mobile phone meta data.
If the $400 million Gallipo-fest wasn’t enough oi-oi-oi for ya, we now have a tsunami of selective sorrow and outrage for Australians executed in Indonesia. There’s no part of all this that isn’t sickening.
Let’s face it, if you want a fight between the monarchy and the workers, you want our side to come out on top right? Never forget that May Day actually means something.
The cultification of an imperialist invasion of a foreign nation that Australia had no quarrel with is against all ideals of modern society
The charade that Western governments believe in free speech etc etc blah blah blah continues, and Bishop is certainly late to the party. As outrageous as the murders of Charlie Hebdo staff were, it is beyond hypocritical for these leaders to shamelessly suggest they actually stand for freedom of expression.
Naive and stupid move from Dr Karl to agree to assist the government – especially when Hockey had been sitting on the IGR document beyond the statut..
Wow Gallipo-fest 2015 is really hotting up! We got gallipo-surfboats landing at Anzac Cove! Gallipo-fresh foodstuffs! And check out the gallipo-merch available for a short time only!

The remote-controlled hunting of human beings has become standard practice in American warfare.
Now that the Group of 8 universities have withdrawn support for any further compromise on Pyne’s higher ed legislation, he’s moved on to easier things like fixing weaknesses in a Death Star… with the same degree of success I’m sure.
I have no intention of leaving the Labor Party
As someone who lives with small children, it’s shocking when you realise that most kids books still imply that 85% of Earth’s fauna is male and that boy stuff matters more than girl stuff. Luckily, they’ll grow up to realise there’s more to the story.
Anyone who tells you that these are simply billing records or the envelope surrounding substantive communications is either technically illiterate or lying to your face
It’s been 75 days since Costa Rica’s power grid last had a sip of petroleum.
This winter, Arctic sea ice extent reached a record low, and peaked earlier this year than it ever has before.
Ok everyone, it’s serious. We need direct action: the data is in and these LNP brain farts are going to kill us all!
