    IBAC: $10,000 for developer’s dumplings with Daniel Andrews

    The Flower Drum Chinese restaurant in Melbourne. Picture: Nicole Cleary


    10:00PM MAY 6, 2022

    When you follow someone, you’ll see their latest stories on your homepage in the ‘Following’ section.
    You can buy a lot of dumplings for $10,000, even at the Flower Drum.

    But for property developer John Woodman it was a price worth paying because it also bought him an intimate lunch with Dan Andrews.

    Having won the luncheon with the highest bid at an earlier ALP fundraising auction, Mr Woodman and a small group of associates, including Labor-linked lobbyist Philip Staindl, gathered at Melbourne’s most ­famous Chinese restaurant on September 13, 2017.

    Mr Staindl briefed them about the ground rules for the lunch; a precondition of the Premier’s ­attendance was an embargo on raising any specific planning ­issues with him. Rather, this should be seen as a relationship-building exercise.

    But IBAC has obtained evidence of something that the Woodman camp intended to raise with Mr Andrews. But the agency has found no evidence of any specific conversations having occurred. The exact nature of the topic has not been disclosed.

    In its quarterly statement on monetary policy, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) warned core inflation could now hit 4.6% by December, a startling two percentage points higher than its previous forecast made in February.

    That would be well above the RBA’s 2-3% target band and inflation was only seen returning to the top of the band by mid- 2024, suggesting a lengthy tightening cycle was in store.

    From my eyes four point six is an understatement. Dunno about the rest of you up in the mainland but have some observatuons;

    1; price of meat is through the roof. Obviously the srought has not helped. Rump steak here is $30/kg from four years ago of $15/kg

    2; pork is into $18/kg

    3; cans of meals have gone into $3.90 after sitting at two bucks fifty for yonks.

    4: Bread is starting to nudge four dollars

    A lot of these are a function of wages. Central wage fixing in this country is a sick joke and will be the biggest hurdle to overcome. However, how can we get rid of that politically as well as waking people up from the union yoke?

    Living in a crazy market evolving on a minute by minute basis here in Slowbart. Established land has been parceled out at quarter to half an acre and is now nudging the million bucks down where we are at Kingston Beach. Lucky we got ‘in’ on a parcel and build for four hundred.

    Wage slaves selling their arse by the hour are bouyant but can’t get a realistic price for a home while filthy mainlanders can sell in Sydney, for example, and buy a home AND a shack.

    To summarise G vanden Bossche

    The vaxx is non-sterilising, it has also driven a highly mutagenic virus to, der, mutate.

    Predominant mutations could circle back

    These mutations could effect vacinees because those immune systems have been primed to fixate on the spike

    There is a potential, and he wagers his dick and balls on this, for sugar moieties on the spike to occlude sterilising Immunoglobulins from affecting the normal routine of recognition and removal

    Dendritic Cells can pick-up the human-made cellular made spike and open the trimeric spike for presentation for transinfection.

    Natural immunity has less chance of opening the door to consequent and persistent infection

    Oil carryover is present in all pneumatic systems where the compressed air is generated by oil lubricated compressors. With the increased use of electronic and small orifice components on trucks and coaches, the problem of contamination and failure related to oil carryover in the compressed air system has increased. Even though the rate of oil carryover out of the compressor has improved over recent years, problems persist. This paper will describe how the oil is transported out of the compressor, the various states oil is generated including vapor pressure profiles and size distribution of the condensed aerosols. Also reviewed is the oil removal effectiveness of various components downstream of the compressor. A model of oil liquefaction from vapor and aerosol states will be presented. The effect of liquefied oil combined with other contaminates in the pneumatic system and various design criteria for downstream equipment will be discussed.”

    Another excellent essay from the good Doctor. RTWT here.

    A taster:

    Care homes and COVID19

    1st May 2022

    [Lessons must be learned]

    I love the phrase ‘lessons need to be learned’. It always makes me laugh when I hear it. Usually intoned with a voice of great seriousness by the leaders of an organisation found to have made disastrous errors. It is right up there with ‘safety is our number one priority.’ About the only group I have yet to hear say this are arms manufacturers. Although I wouldn’t put it past them. Maybe … ‘You could take someone’s eye out with that.’

    As I have occasionally remarked about airlines … when they tell us that safety is their number one priority. Well, in that case don’t take off. Everything is perfectly safe when your plane is on the ground. It’s that hurling yourself into the air, dashing about in the skies, then landing, where all the accidents take place.

    Getting back to lessons learned. The only lesson I have ever learned, about lessons being learned, is that lessons are never learned. The same disasters occur again, and again, for all the same reasons. The reasons being institutional inertia and the overwhelming desire of those at the top to protect themselves from any criticism.

    What I have also learned is that the primary function of any enquiry is to make sure that no-one who actually made those terrible decisions can be blamed for anything. A few scapegoats further down the pecking order will be dragged out and punished. Then all goes quiet again.

    ‘Mistakes were made.’ This is another one I enjoy. Mistakes were made – but who made them? The use of the passive voice is all you ever need to pay attention to Here. You never hear. ‘I made this mistake. Or, that person made this mistake.’ Even more rarely will you hear ‘I, alone, made this mistake.’

    Yes, once the dreaded passive voice comes into play, you know that no-one is going to be singled out, no lessons are going to be learned by anyone. Instead, some vague unidentifiable entity will have to learn from the mistakes that some other vague and unidentifiable entity may, or may not, have made.

    The interview with Clive Palmer I posted last week shows Palmer with some considered views on Putin through some direct conversations he has had with Putin regarding geopolitical situations including Ukraine. Nothing particularly “pro Ukraine” that I could see.

    Cossack has shown us that there is only one issue that he is really passionate about – Russian nationalism.

    Whoever leaked the Roe v Wade draft document was hoping that the media and leftists could pressure the public and the companies to get involved to reverse the decision.

    Not so simple.

    PR Giant Tells Corporate Clients to Stay Silent on Abortion, ‘No-Win’ Situation

    A massive PR firm that represents high-profile corporations like Coca-Cola, AT&T, and Starbucks is privately advising its clients to remain silent on abortion rights, according to an internal email obtained by Popular Information.

    With its top corporate clients – including Kia Motors, Astra Zeneca, and Pizza Hut, Zeno Group, a subsidiary of the world’s largest public relations conglomerate, Edelman Holdings, earns almost $120 million in annual revenue.

    Zeno suggests its corporate clients remain silent on the issue because taking a public stance could be a “no-win” situation for companies.

    The email template said:

    Do not take a stance you cannot reverse, especially when the decision is not final. This topic is a textbook “50/50” issue. Subjects that divide the country can sometimes be no-win situations for companies because regardless of what they do they will alienate at least 15 to 30 percent of their stakeholders… Do not assume that all of your employees, customers or investors share your view.

    Russians can be like that.

    See also Putin, Vladimir.

    March 2022: Chinese companies have secured a major contract to begin building the first phase of a new inter-city railway across the Philippine island of Luzon
    When the entire line is complete, in 2027, PNR Bicol passenger trains will run at a speed of up to 160km/h and freight trains will run at a speed of up to 100km/h.
    Almost same distance from Sydney to Melb, yet mountainous terrain and in 5 years.
    Perhaps we could do a deal with …
    Naah we need more F-35A Lightning 11 in case they invade us.
