It is called 'your space' . not a forum apparently, you fill out a form like vote compass.

I miss the old 'Have your say' , thousands of members, always busy.

Facebook seems to have killed off the good old forums.

Agreed Max. HYS and Q&A forums were vibrant and productive. They had their share of loonies, but that's life. The ABC now want to direct opinions not let their audience decide what they wanted. That's why their Facebook site lost me and a lot of others I suspect

Border Force corruption and widespread rorting 'undermining Australia's immigration programs'


A 7.30-Fairfax Media investigation has discovered that in the last 12 months, Australian Border Force chief Michael Pezzullo has referred 132 cases of suspected corruption inside the department to the national corruption watchdog, the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI).


It comes as a former immigration official claims that a focus on boat arrivals has allowed migration crime involving people arriving by plane to flourish unchecked.


Scott Morrison & Peter Dutton, Border Force is your child take responsibly.   :mad:

A Tampa moment for Labor ? Judging by this morning's polls, they need something to give them a boost.

I expect Labor and the Greens to jump on this one with maximum effort.

Do not waste this opportunity !   :/

I put that result down to two factors:

(1) They've stopped smoking that Mexican wanky weed.

(2) Bernie Sanders supporters are coming to terms with the idea of voting for Hillary Clinton.

Chew on this Boris..........


The Scottish Parliament may have the constitutional power to block the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says.


Under the UK's complex arrangements to devolve some powers to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, legislation generated in London to give effect to the vote to leave the EU would have to gain consent from the three devolved Parliaments

Brexit: Australia to team with NZ to negotiate new trade, immigration deals, Malcolm Turnbull says.

I have mixed feelings about this article:

Good to see increased co-operation with our Kiwi cousins.  :)

Worried that Turnbull is using Brexit to scare Oz voters (don't fall for it folks).  :mad:

Watching the ministers filing into No 10 Downing Street - watching the Slitheens going in. Where is the Doctor? Harriette Jones must be inside already? Where is the Doctor?

So that explains Boris' behaviour, a Slitheen has killed him and is wearing his skin.

He really needs a Doctor now !   :P

I found it Max, despite the TV ad being a vague.

It's an online research community, whatever that's supposed to mean.

Doesn't look like a reborn Have Your Say to me.  :|

Another Border Force Scandal.

Two US Air Force members and a number of Australian Border Force (ABF) officials have allegedly been recruited by international criminal syndicates attempting to smuggle goods into Australia.

Certainly they have some very serious mental issues in the USA.

In particular when in comes to the subject of firearms, reality becomes a very blurred concept.  :roll:

Did Bill Shorten mention the Border Force Scandals during his speech at the Press Club today ?  :|
