What Is Climate Change?
WA Police Open Letter To Mark McGowan
In a recent open letter to the WA Premier, Mark McGowan, it was pointed out that there are no minimum staffing levels for police.
What does this mean to you and I? Unlike other large organisations, if ALL police at a given station call in sick, there will be no-one on duty at that station.
This results in longer response times as officers have to travel from another district to give assistance. It could mean the difference between life and death for the public in the worst-case scenario.
During the discussions with the Government, it was said that as crime has no prescribed number of occurrences, there was no need for a minimum or prescribed number of police on duty.
What absolute rubbish.
Justin Trudeau – Brownface Photo
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologised for a “brownface photo” which was taken during his attendance at a Vancouver private school back in 2001. Is this PC gone mad? Do we need to ban themed parties?
Trudeau has unreservedly apologised saying that when he attended the Arabian Nights themed party he should have known better, but didn’t.
Did he harm anyone? No, not really.
Were the people at the party offended? It appears not going by the photo released in the press.
Why was nothing said about this when he was first elected as Prime Minister of Canada? Because the dirt diggers of the opposition are better at their job than the first time around.
We see actors playing out roles on TV, movies and on stage. Sometimes they are playing characters who are wife beaters or racists.
Are they held accountable? No.
Why not? Because they are acting.
And acting is really what PM Trudeau was doing back in 2001. He dressed up as a character. That was all he did.
So I guess we will need to ban costume or themed parties after all.
Hi there, I’m Chris.

Michael McCormack Says Come Pick Our Fruit
Michael McCormack happily sits in an airconditioned office with a comfy chair and tells Pacific Islanders to “come pick our fruit.”
After the Pacific Island Forum in Tuvalu, this was the Deputy PMs response to concerns about the islands being swamped due to global warming. His comment was reportedly made at a Wagga Wagga business function.
Michael McCormack Gaff
To be as insensitive to say that a Nation will survive global warming because they come to Australia to pick fruit has to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, big-headed, full of my own importance, idiotic statements of Modern History.
Enele Sopoaga, (Prime Minister of Tuvalu) is reported by the SBS News [*1*] as accusing Australia of worrying about its own economy and not the implications of climate change.
Should the deputy PMs comments accurately reflect the opinion of our Australian Parliament, then his (Enele’s) statement is both true and worrying.
Are we a nation that is so self-centred that we only care about ourselves without concern for others and the bigger picture of what is in store for us in the future if climate change is ignored? I hope not, because, let us not forget that the vast majority of our population live on the coast. Also, if we were forced in the future to abandon our homes and move inland would we even have the resources left to sustain life in our arid centre?
Make your voice heard. Tell your local parliamentary representative that you are not happy with Michael McCormack’s comment and that you want your government to take climate change seriously. Even if we won’t be sinking under the oceans tomorrow.
