Diana – eternally

For Heavens sake! “By the woman behind her style” and so it goes on in the media. Will the media never allow Diana to RIP? What next – the woman who did her laundry? The men she knew (perhaps not!)? I have had enough of Diana Spencer and surely it’s time to let her go and stop using her to make money in the media. Diana RIP.

Rorts – are they everlasting?

Fixing a rort – Labor’s family trust policy is innovative” SMH 2 Aug – How do we go about getting rid of Rorts or making them acceptable, Royce Millar?  Perhaps if we loudly shouted “remember Eddie Obeid and his trust supporting several sons” – perhaps then someone would listen and remove this big end of town tax rort.  But does anyone have the intestinal fortitude to tackle this problem?  I doubt it.

A SIMPLE “THANK YOU”

How often do we see persons –  royalty, VIPs, politicians,  come from a building or in/out of a car and the faithful “somebody” stands by and opens the door?

Do the royal persons, politicians, VIPs, premiers, prime ministers ever say “thank you”? I have watched the scene thousands of times on the news but haven’t yet detected any movement of mouth to say “thank you”.

Gladys and buses

Over 700 breakdowns of buses according to Berejiklian and Constance – but my question is WHY/ Why are the faults in the buses not attended to? Is it because – as a bus driver said to me – that Gladys was getting ready to sell off the bus lines (note “lines” not just the current lines under discussion). Will private bus lines be better maintained and if not will those bus lines be subject to condemnation or even returned to the government?  No way!!!   Is it intended to privatise ALL buses?  Will we be told – no!!!!

SCHAPELLE CORBY

Are other viewers/readers as disgusted as I am at the behaviour of the media pursuing Schapelle Corby? Guilty or innocent she has done her time and she is surely entitled to be treated with a certain amount of respect and not pursued as if she were an animal out on the African veldt.
What pleasure will viewers/readers get watching a TV interview or listening to her being hounded by media or interviewers. Have some respect or sympathy for another human being and turn off the TV or go to another channel. Don’t watch the harassment of a human being done for ratings and money – even if the whole show appears to be stage managed for profit.

Chelsea and Donald

Poor WikiLeaks whistleblower Chelsea Manning – released from gaol after seven years (SMH 18 May) for doing much the same thing – disclosure of intelligence matter – as the President of the USA. But Donald will tough it out and build up his ego without doing time in any form.

The amazing Donald Trump

Is this how Donald Trump conducted his business interests prior to becoming President of the USA? Lies, obfuscation, mind-boggling mind-switches, vindictive staff relations, constant staff turnover…how on earth did he become a billionaire. Oh yes! He confused and bewildered his business opponents but for how long will this system work in diplomatic/political circles.
Will someone remind me – what were Nixon and Clinton taken to task for – impeached for?
