It may seem odd that political attention and resources are focused now on Sunni extremists, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and not on the Ebola outbreak in West Africa or Climate Change. We are told that the Government’s focus is to keep Australians safe.

The precautionary principle steps in, as it should, Dexter and Hannah are steered away from interacting with other dogs or people.
Tony Abbott may like running up the cab charge making the rounds visiting the important places. As long as he does not visit any wineries he should be fine. Just perhaps it would pay if he were to have a head to head with Papa Francesco. That may be a bad look for a Liberal Prime Minister but nonetheless be productive.
Spring has arrived. The creek may soon be running dry, but Dexter and Hannah will appreciate it while it still flows.
The case may be, or seems to be, at least in relation to Dexter and Hannah, if I behave well, provided I have them under control, they behave well. Anyway, Sally Hibbard says dog owners can get it wrong in several ways. She writes:
There is now 15 hours to the opening of the polls in the Scottish Independence Referendum. Polls are suggesting 48% of the voters will choose Yes. Close is not good enough if NO achieves 50% (probably plus one to make it an absolute majority).

Be afraid. Terror is afoot in the land, and what is worse it is religious terror. More specifically, it is Middle Eastern terror. This terror is not in any way, related to the bombing and barbarism visited on the Middle East and its people by the West over the last hundred years, oil, or any other crimes or causes. “We” are honourable; “they” are not. “We” are human; “they” are not. International law does not apply, especially when “our” interests are in play.
About one in eight voters in the Scottish Referendum on independence from the United Kingdom seems to have changed their mind in the last month or so. The latest YouGov poll has been a shock to the political establishment in London – both the Conservative and Labour Parties.
The rain is persisting. A good thing to be happening. Spring may be here but so it has presence felt. Dexter and Hannah are getting out more.
Now it looks as if one the wars that Tony Abbott had committed to will not be happening. Could this be mission crash? Or maybe not. There could be still two separate war fronts. Still there are those barbaric “people” in the Middle East – not the Israelis -and who must be stopped, as the propaganda rolls out from its spruikers in the media and all reasonable persons agree.
