After watching Steve Price block Van Badham’s attempts to speak about the cultural problem of disrespect to women, in what could have been a training video to teach people exactly what disrespect to women looks like, I was angry.

It’s now been two weeks since polls opened, and we are now getting very close to a conclusion of the House of Representatives count.

There is only one conventional seat still in play, which is Herbert. There will also be news today in Melbourne Ports which may either make the seat a serious seat in play or make it a clear Labor seat.

Herbert

The Liberal National Party, at the time of writing late on Friday night, led by 12 votes in Herbert.

There are 200 absent votes outstanding. Labor has won 51.5% of these votes so far. If the remaining votes break the same way, Labor will gain six votes.

The US, UK and Australian "intelligence" agencies manufactured FALSE INTELLIGENCE.

I had a career first—I took a phone call in the middle of a shit. I've never been in a position where I've had to do that professionally—through I do once remember taking a personal call whilst on the toilet some ten years ago—but as part of stepping up I had to stay in contact with people; make calls, receive calls and basically push things through.And so it came to pass that I was pushing something through when a call came in about pushing something through.
