Brexit Project Fear is the Reality of an own goal – if not two or three

We have met this regretful, leave voting fish merchant before – he now thinks he’s ‘stuffed’, poor chap. Basically by carrying fish from several exporters in one load – his transport agent has warned him that if a mistake with his paperwork leads to the truck being turned back at the border he will be...

ScoMo Tells The Arts To Start Putting On Some Fundraising Shows For The Struggling Coal Industry

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 18/12/2020 - 7:43am in

Australian Prime Minister Scotty from marketing has called on Australia’s arts industry to come together and start organising some fundraising shows for the struggling coal industry, like they did for last summer’s bushfire victims.

“We are all in this together, so today I call on our country’s muso’s like Delta, Tina and good old Guy Sebastian to dust off their microphones and sing for our coal industry,” said Scotty from marketing. “It is tough for our countries miners, poor old Gina Rinehart is at risk of falling down the ladder of Australia’s most richest people.”

“Now, we wouldn’t want to see that happen would we?”

When asked why the Arts industry which has been decimated by Covid should be expected to bail out other industries, the Prime Minister said: “I reject the premise of your question.”

“Buskers can still busk and comedians can still tweet. There is work out there if you’re willing to have a go.”

“Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to meet the Treasurer to re-jig the budget. We’ve booked the party room at Engadine Maccas for 10am and they don’t like it when you’re late….or miss the toilet.”

Social infrastructure is also vital to any recovery plan

This is a letter to the FT from the Progressive Economy Forum (an outfit that our esteemed benefactor, Richard Murphy, has been expelled from – simply because he doesn’t think Quantitative Easing will ever be paid back. Time has actually already told – it’s 12 years and counting that it has not…) UK chancellor Rishi... Read more

Invited by Ian McMillan, along with a poet and an archaeologist, to discuss ANOTHER NOW – On BBC Radio 3’s The Verb

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 28/11/2020 - 8:37pm in

What might a zero-growth world mean for writers? The Verb offers this provocation to this week’s guests, and asks how poets in particular can adjust to a world economy that’s changing rapidly under long-down. Is there such a thing as a sustainable poem? Ian McMillan is joined by: Yanis Varoufakis, economist, author and member of the Greek Parliament, Dr Seren Griffiths, an archaeologist and Radio 3 New Generation Thinker (fascinated by time and the taxonomy of soil), by novelist and poet Patrick McGuinness who is intrigued by the idea of a poem that leaves the ‘ordinary’ just as it is, and we welcome Jade Cuttle, (critic and poet) back to the Verb for second time this season – she reads French eco-poetry to her house-plant for us and we listen to its reaction via special technology.

Yanis Varoufakis’ new novel is ‘Another Now’, Jade Cuttle’s album of poem/songs is called ‘Algal Bloom’, and Patrick McGuinness’s most recent publication is the novel ‘Throw me to the Wolves’.

Gladys Berejiklian: 10 Iconic Buildings I’d Like To Turn Into A Pokies Den

My Government has achieved a lot for the developers…..err, the people of NSW yet we still have so much more to accomplish.

Walking around the glorious city of Sydney the other day as I awaited for the results of my Covid test, I thought how could we make the place more lucrative. Sure, we could build more units and collect more stamp duty but that’s an occasional revenue stream.

Then it hit me as I sat looking over the Opera house. This State just doesn’t have enough pokies machines.

Imagine sitting in the Opera House as you wait for your show and slipping a few pineapples into the machines to kill a bit of time.

The Family Law Court, wouldn’t it be great if you could slap that new child support lucre into the Queen of the Nile? It would even give some of the children a place to hang before they say goodbye to one of their caregivers

Or better yet how good would your daily commute be with pokies. Some people in NSW have to travel a couple of hours a day just to get to work. Under my Government I will ensure that all trains, ferries and buses are fitted with pokies machines.

As well I will make it mandatory for all companies to pay their workers in cash.

Together we can make the State of NSW great again by making sure the pokies machines keep running.

The title of this article was 10 iconic buildings I’d like to turn into pokies dens, but if I’m honest I’d love to turn the whole State into one big giant Pokies den.

Let’s get it done NSW.

New poster campaign

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 19/11/2020 - 7:16am in

Which is, I suspect, organised by Led by Donkeys – the posters seem to suggest their blackly humorous and hard hitting style, which is, as more and more of us realise, no more than the truth: What they don’t mention is that all this self-inflicted hardship is actually in the middle of a pandemic…...

Is rebellion imminent?

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 10/10/2020 - 7:55am in

This moving piece from Channel 4 news and from a real small employer (rather than a grasping rentier capitalist) correctly explains why so many are completely adrift in the government’s occasional, random and unscientific lockdowns. For sure the science is uncertain – but the money creation to ensure both the lady in the interview and... Read more

Sunak is going to trash our economy and our lives

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 26/09/2020 - 10:43pm in

Sunak’s disastrous recently announced ‘Job Retention Scheme’ spoke of his desire to keep ‘viable’ jobs, which even the Telegraph thinks will not deliver, . He has given us no indication of those jobs he considers viable and as we all now know there is no objective viability – only Sunak’s bizarre and cruel political choice... Read more
