NEW: This is the fifth Panelbase poll to ask the independence question in 2020 and those polls have now found support for independence to be 52%, 49%, 50%, 52% and 54% and that would seem to suggest the momentum is now with the independence movement.

It's an English paper, what would you expect? Very few English journos see that issue straight, although it's only fair to say, is one of them.

If he had simply taken the money he inherited from his father and put it in the bank, he would have more today. So yeh, real successful.

If you are as contemptuous as Cummings, and you don't like people having a go at you in the street... call me crazy, but you could always try not being quite such a dickhead. You can affect these people's lives, but you're upset because you had to hear them? Aw, diddums!

Oh god, I'm going to have to agree with you! Strange bedfellows. But this is a clear cut situation, Emily only offence was being right. We must defend objectivity. Balance does NOT mean covering up the truth to save the government's blushes when it has clearly fucked up!

I think number one amongst her attributes would have to be NOT being a blithering posh twat who's half-arsed everything he's ever done in his miserable life, because he's been brought up with no appreciation of consequence. That'd be my guess.

That is one reason I named my second kid Zoe - so she could sign her name like that. 😂 Under-appreciated of course, like everything you do for your kids.

Right, I know 3 fifths of fuck all about NRL, but listening to this discussion it's already crystal clear to me that this guy Gould must be a prick, is the main problem for everyone else involved, and obviously should go. Am I right? Or am I missing something?

Let's ban talk of electricity prices, it's just a distraction anyway. If they really wanted cheap power the answer is simple - renationalise the bloody lot, and TELL THEM WHAT TO CHARGE!!!

I think I can. It's called a cultural cringe, and it's exactly why we need our OWN broadcaster!

Totally agree, that's one hell of a cultural cringe right there! I'd be in there still. 😀

So what you're saying is that it's better that we maintain a delusional belief in a supernatural being because we can't be trusted to develop our own morality? Greg, that says far more about YOU than it does about atheists!

Come on, we all know very well what greg would have done - if it was an ALP member, he'd have been revelling in it, if it was a Coalition member, he'd have sat on it.
