Sometimes the shovel is hilarious and all of the time it is snarky. Today it just gets right to the point and cuts through all the crap.

Ian Macdonald, the Liberal chair of the legal estimates committee is currently grilling Gillian Triggs, head of the human rights commission about her report that the government has rejected as partisan. He has just revealed that HE HAS NOT READ THE REPORT!

In other revelations Gillian Triggs was offered another job by the secretary of the Attorney General's Department if she resigned as human rights commissioner.

This is just astounding.

Human Rights Commission president faces attacks in Senate estimates over children in detention report, as the prime minister continues to battle leaks and infighting, and new polling shows a small bounce for the Coalition. All the developments from Canberra, live

What the hell !? Far as I can tell she's done a hard job admirably as possible and she's copping flak from someone that hasn't read the actual report. 

What a depressing stitchup. :/

This is a disgrace. If the government believes the report to be in error then they should debate the issues rather than conducting Ad Hominem attacks on the human rights commissioner.

Does nothing for fucking years. Completely ignores the removing of aboriginal children from their families and finally gets caught playing politics. Get out. Stay out and good riddance

Oh My. I was literally laughing out loud in the office, I just couldn't stop myself.

Typical Liberals, they even failed at this simple task they wanted to achieve. They can't seem to get anything right this term. Perhaps they should have asked Labor, there experts at it.

On the one hand our government is bemoaning the cost of Medicare and on the other hand they are going to sign up to a deal that will cost the health system hundreds of millions of dollars. 

One wonders if the sustainability of the health system is secondary to the profits of pharmaceutical and health insurance companies who can make campaign donations.

The thing that gets me riled up is the fact that the government can sign this agreement with no scrutiny whatsoever. So much for living in a democracy.

“Neither the prime minister nor any other member of the government has pointed to any factual errors in the report; their concern has been to attack the timing and motivation of the report and to seek to assign all fault to the other side of politics.

“A well-functioning democracy requires that the executive respect the work of independent public institutions established by parliament to perform specific functions even if it does not agree with specific positions adopted by them,”

Whether yo agree or disagree with Gillian Triggs, you have to argue the facts and not the person.

This makes me angry.

ONE Show! A SINGLE Show is released right after it airs in the US. Can you watch all of the shows you want for a reasonable price? No. Do you have to sign up for multiple services and pay through the nose for the privilege just to see some of the shows you want to watch? Yes. Does most of the content come on significant delay? Yes.

Until the Australian content industry comes up with a decent value proposition across a range of entertainment choices piracy will be an attractive and viable option for many people.
</rant>
AUSTRALIA is a nation of pirates. It’s one record we lead the world in which we wish we didn’t. For a long time that blame has been put squarely on the fact that Australia often gets new TV shows later and for a premium price than the rest of the world.

How about 2 shows? Would you still pirate if there were 2 shows at a reasonable price with no significant delay?
