Why is the ADF permitted to conduct drug trials on military personnel ?

It seems that the ADF has a group of cowboy medics who ignore medical ethics.

Tonight 7:30 reported on another experiment conducted on ADF personnel that went dreadfully wrong.

NBN news: Does this sound like a back-flip to you?


If re-elected, the Coalition will spend $14 million connecting towns on Tasmania's west coast to the National Broadband Network using fibre to the node, bowing to public backlash against original plans to use satellite.


The Coalition said it would abandon the current satellite roll out to more than 2,700 West Coast premises, and help fund fibre optic cable connections to Queenstown, Rosebery and Zeehan, while Strahan would get fixed wireless connection.

The LNP's whole campaign is blame Labor. They have no policies of their own.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has slammed Malcolm Turnbull's "maladministration" of the NBN rollout amid attacks from the Prime Minister over costings. 


Mr Turnbull says the Opposition has adopted "Shortenomics" – "short on economics".


I watched both press conferences on ABC News 24 this morning.

Talk about Chalk & Cheese:

Bill Shorten and Jason Clare (ALP Communications spokesman) knew they are on a winner talking about Turnbull's version of the NBN.  8)

In contrast Malcolm Turnbull could only rattle off a handful of clichés and talk about Greens preferences.  :/

Turnbull has stuffed the NBN no question. Is this still an election issue though ?


It's up to Labor to make it one again.

I've sure that the ALP will make the NBN an election issue.

It's a the heart of Turnbull's credibility as a modern leader.   :/

Warning:  Nut Job Alert !

A senior Russian football official and politician has praised his country's football hooligans, claiming they were defending the nation's honour and that it was "normal" for fans to fight at matches.


"I don't see anything wrong with the fans fighting," Igor Lebedev, a member of both the Russian Football Union's executive committee and the lower house of Russia's federal assembly.


"Quite the opposite, well done lads, keep it up!"


May be Trump should nuke Moscow after all.   :|
