  1. Everybody except the Canberra press gallery is talking about it.

    Well, the press gallery and the usually talkative AWU boss, Paul Howes..

      The Canberra Press Gallery are a first rate joke and have been for quite some time. As for Paul Howes……….nope this man is not worth worrying about anymore. Feel that Newspoll today giving Labor 5 points is very suspect, have always said the only poll that counts is the election poll, so will wait for that one, thanks.

        The term you are looking for is the ‘Presstitutes’

        As for Paul Howes he is a bloviating bloated Yak a union flunky with the real world work skills of a 15 year old schoolboy.

      • Indeed. Sean put a lot of good ones the other day, too.

    Put this up on “Don’t let the door hit…….” but because it is an open thread will put it up again, the alarm bells should have been ringing loud and clear on this.

    Wonder if the money is going into a secret “bank account?”

      Whoops should have said with thanks to Kabul on Piers for that article.

    • From that link…

       It comes as government insiders admit Labor’s dismal polling is making the task of attracting corporate donations “challenging”.

      HA!

    I must admit I dont pay much attention to the tv news anymore, but I’m amazed there has been no mention of this. Maybe someone should send FOX a little email…

    • I didn’t think Oz has FOX.

        Only on foxtel (satellite/cable for you foreign types).

        • American FOX, or Aussie?

          (and FFS, I know what bloody Foxtel is!) ;-)

            Didnt know we had our own FOX. Its been I while since I had cable.
            Either would do, if someone starts mentioning it on tv, the others might catch on in a few months.,..

            • As far as I’m aware, we don’t. However, there is talk of it. The lefties would go apoplectic if it started up. :-)

    Samsung pays Apple $1 Billion sending 30 trucks full of 5 cent coins

    http://www.zurmat.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/samsung-pays-apple-1-billion-sending-30-trucks-full-of-5-cents-coins.jpg

    This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
