    Green hydrogen:

    The hydrogen fools don’t realise that we already have a hydrogen system. It’s called HYDRO-carbons and its most effective energy sources are coal, oil and gas.

    Big Gubmint, Big Business all in cahoots.

    ***********************************

    Big Government, Big Business & Big Unions – an unholy trinity. This is Bob Hawkes “great accord”, what an ugly thing it is.

    It’s been a major learning experience for those thousands of workers who’ve been members of unions for many years who thought that their union would stand up for them. Betrayal everywhere, you’re a commodity to be bought and sold to enrich the people who hate you.

    Somebody wondered yesterday whether these characters really existed. They do, sadly, in their thousands. When I worked in an emergency dept it was astonishing how many of these characters came through the doors. None of them were ill as such. Big prizes for the top 3 suggestions. Answers posted later.

    Which one’s the man. Did some work in various Cultural Institutions a few years back. The number of homos and dykes unbelievable. The hetero women were very attentive even to an old bloke like me soon as they knew you didn’t bat for the other team (not in the joe burns manner, neil). The other noticeable thing was as soon as the H & D s knew you weren’t interested whether they were fruits or not they behave quite normally.

    You may file under “things that never happened”. Adam Bandt in today’s Hun:
    ‘ I have been too coal towns from Collie to Muswellbrook and said “I’m from the Greens, we want to phase out coalby 2030 and to work with you to ensure you’ve got secure jobs afterwards.”
    Sure, guys in hi vis vests sat with their arms folded staring at me while I talked. But I didn’t get run out of town. In fact, the common response was “I don’t agree with everything you say, but at least you’re being honest with us.”

    I just listened to the First Episode of the IPA’s ‘Their ABC’ expose.
    Compelling and well put together. Too soft, but a start I guess.
    Of course it is wasted money as long as Photios’s whore remains in in the big chair.
    I had a giggle a few nights ago at a function when a particularly lefty journalist said to me “Ita should have stuck to editing bra ads”. “It was the only thing she was any good at”.

    For those with a urge to plumb the bleakest reaches of their psyche I recommend the series on Prime,’The Crimson Field’. The plot is based on a British field hospital in WWI at Abbville.
    Really well put together, great acting, excellent sets and historical vehicles and equipment but dark and very, very grim.
    Of course there has to be some irrelevant woke, and senior officers are all bastards but this is minimal.
    Worth the effort but it ain’t an easy watch.

    🇷🇺 What does a man have to do to get a beer around here? Well if you’re in the Siberian town of Taiga then the answer is quite a lot. I searched everywhere for a beer and met legends on the way. Welcome to the towns other bloggers don’t show you, where everyone is a character with a twinkle in their eye.

    For you guys searching on a map for the towns I visit in this film, they are: Novosibirsk-Bolotnoe-Tomsk-Taiga-Taishet

    On the ward this morning, after we moved over to the recovery room, the newly introduced midwife said to my wife ‘no its ok, you don’t need a mask’
    So i let a thank fůck for that, and got in reply ‘oh no, you still need to wear a mask’
    Yes, i replied, we must follow the science.
    Never again in the next 7 hours did i see that nurse.

    You’d have to wonder why Alec Baldwin was pointing a gun at non-actors or how they got in the way of whatever was happening. Maybe he was fooling around or trying to make them feel uncomfortable because he was angry about something and was pretending to shoot or something.

    Even so, at his age and experience and the awareness of safety something went terribly wrong.
    Surely someone is liable for that woman’s death, but since it is Alec Baldwin the supreme Trump hater and beloved Democrat, probably it will be hushed away.

    I’ve taken to wondering again if Clive Palmer is genuine.

    Possibly he has done a tacit deal with a major party to give them UAP preferences in exchange for something or other and he is using the anxiety and worries of people about the forced vaccination, threatened job loss and terrible things happening here in Australia, to gather membership and party position to force something on the major party to his advantage of some sort.
    Craig Kelly will get used up and spat out if that is the case.

    Correct. In the US today, and most other Western nations, there are 2 legal systems, one for shits like baldwin and other demorats and another for the poor bastards who had a wander around the Capital building on jan 6.
