After great dispute this morning at No Award, we’re singing along to Savage Garden, and I’ve realised how many Aussie bands are from Brisvegas.
No Award is an Aussie blog with an anti-private-healthcare agenda: Market failure: private health insurance only worth it for ‘the pregnant, the rich and the sick’
UScentric, but the point about thinkpieces and hot takes being largely ineffective is a good one: I’m eating turkey with Trump voters tomorrow, and this is what’s on my mind.
For the first time in a long time, Steph reconsidered her NO Qanda stance:
The excellent Luke Pearson: All media need to do better at reporting on Indigenous issues
Speaking of people you should be following, Yen-Rong Wong: Australia, I’m Tired of Your Casual Racism
Anne Aly: ‘Women Like Me Don’t Need To Be Saved’
You should definitely have a read of the transcript of Monday’s HCA sitting as Court of Disputed Returns in the matter of Senator Culleton, because it is a doozy. It has a certain air of ‘it’s justice, it’s the law, it’s the vibe’ to it.
SENATOR CULLETON: So is it best that I go back to George Brandis and we hug and say, look, perhaps there is a way that we can move forward without wasting the Court’s time on this, your Honour, please?
HIS HONOUR: I am not going to speak about your personal relationships with the Attorney-General.
Ugggh why is she here: Pauline Hanson Is Sick And Tired Of People Calling Her Racist
From Steph’s hometown: Fake police car pulled over by real cop in Perth CBD
Operation OBP (Orange-Bellied Parrot) has reached their initial funding goal since I first decided to include them as this week’s grassroots business, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t learn about them. Read about Operation OBP at Pozible (and donate).
