"The problem with a closed conversation with the Liberal party base (or a powerful element of it, in any case), is it tends to drag you way off the political centre, particularly if you are … how can I put this politely … a bit of a blunt instrument."

The PM has found himself in a classic bind: if he can’t hold the party behind him, he’s finished. But he won’t win the next election by having a closed conversation

Got a question for y'all. Anyone know of any software, preferably open source, that assists in mapping out database design, forms, pages, reports etc for Web application. I have an archaic programming background but I'm strongly familiar with what was once called the software development life cycle. Is that still a thing?

So, we're talking about entity relationship diagrams, what tasks are activated when you click button a, b or chat, etc

If I'm as clear as mud, tell me I'm old!

"The industry minister, Ian Macfarlane, didn't tell reporters in Adelaide the government had backflipped on the ATS cut because the South Australian vote is an important one and there is a federal election next year. Also, after Abbott's submarine lies to SA Liberal MPs during #libspilll  he was running low on credibility and bargaining chips."

Letting the government have their way while looking the other way.

Palmer is self interested.  The Brick On Legs is a coward.

The Palmer United Party's two senators, Glenn Lazarus and Dio Wang, will abstain from voting on government legislation indefinitely, according to party leader Clive Palmer.

He'll be the first one a federal ICAC nails, I reckon.  Because he's clearly bought and paid for but too dumb to hide it as well as some others we might mention!
 
What's even more noteworthy about how seriously the government takes the suffering of children is that Senator Ian Macdonald, chair of the estimates committee looking into the report, didn't actually read the thing.

"I haven't been bothered to read the report because it's partisan," the grown adult heading the committee said to other adults on the commitee. And after all, we all know that the best way to know how biased a report might be is to not read it. That's just sensible.

You might recall Macdonald as the serious-minded public representative who brought quiet dignity to the senate by wearing a hi-vis Australians For Coal mining vest during debate over the mining tax, just in case anyone was unaware whose corporate interests he was serving.

But Big Mac was on fire today, asking necessary and relevant questions such as "With so much time and money being spent on children's welfare, how can anyone call them 'forgotten children'?" Triggs spoke for the nation in her understated response: "I'm not sure I understand your question."
Also, the government is the real victim of detention centre child abuse, says the government. Your news of the day, reduced to a snarky rant.

Dear +The Guardian

It's NASA, not Nasa, 'k? It's an acronym.

That is all.

Also, an ocean on Mars? Very cool :)

These are the voices we need in parliament.  The political class is not destroying our democracy.

My hope is that my story will highlight how crushing it is to be young and unemployed in Australia.

PW:DR.  But yes.
 
Did we ignore siege warning signs because Monis was only violent towards women? [$]
Man Haron Monis' long history of violence against women is being brushed aside as Man's world of counter-terrorism takes over.
