Is Australian Politics Becoming a Topless Joke?

Posted: March 31st, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Favorite New Thought . . ., From The Web, They Said What | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Is Australian Politics Becoming a Topless Joke?

Is The Australian Sports Party a Topless Joke?As polling booths prepare to open across Perth, one political party has ramped up its media presence with that standard Aussie manoeuvre, a pair of strategically place boobs.

In this latest round of political campaigning – Senate seats for Western Australia – The Australian Sports Party has posted a joke on it’s Facebook page that has many wondering what direction – if any – the party intends to canvas punters on.

Australia has a rich history of political cranks, our last election, 2013, witnessed a cacoffiny of crazy, odd-ball candidates.

From Clive Palmer’s paranoia – the billionaire turned politician still reckons lefty Greens are funded by the CIA – to the dope (hemp if you must) party, This latest election – a senate only re-run due to bungling by the Electoral Commission – will surely see politics over-run by mental micro opinion?

The big question has to be ‘has Australian politics become, well, too Aussie?’ As minor, micro parties busily stitch together preferences, swapping deals in the hope of riding an unpredictable wave into the Australian Federal Parliament, the marriages are likely to be idiosyncratic matches, The Hemp, Sports and Sustainable Pollution Parties have little in common but are likely to swap preference in order to gain seats.

The Australian Sports Party -ASP – should apologise for the above Facebook photo, a prominent women’s rights group says. The picture is accompanied by an anecdote about the woman, described as “voluptuous” and a “babe”, who is running with a sign around her neck saying, “If you catch me, you can have me” :: Read the full article »»»»


Australia Considering Heavy Handed Copyright Enforcement

Australia's Attorney General Considering Heavy Handed Copyright EnforcementAustralia’s Attorney General, Senator George Brandis has foreshadowed serious changes to the nations copyright laws.

Senator Brandis says one move he’s considering is asking internet service providers – ISPs – to issue warnings to customers.

Australians are among the worst offenders when it comes to illegal downloads, Senator Brandis is also apparently considering asking ISPs to block sites where content can be illegally downloaded.

Copyright holders like film and television and music studios have long argued that it is ISPs role to prevent internet users from illegally downloading their content.

The glitch in the plan might be a landmark High Court ruling in 2012, where the court found service provider iiNet wasn’t responsible for its customers’ illegal activities :: Read the full article »»»»

Australia’s War on Sugar

Australia's War on SugarIn Australia the war on obesity is heating up, three major health organisations want a sugar tax on all sweetened beverages – not just soft drinks, but products like flavoured milk and sports drinks – to limit consumption and curb what is shaping up to be the nations biggest health problem.

However, Australia’s Food and Grocery Council – the body representing the food and beverage industry – is hitting back against health campaigns aimed at reducing sugar consumption, prompting critics to compare the industry’s position to that of tobacco companies fight against smoking decades ago.

In the UK a similar campaign ‘Action on Sugar’ has just launched, in the hope of reversing the obesity epidemic by targeting the “huge and unnecessary amounts of sugar that are currently being added to our food and soft drinks”. The campaign’s expert advisors include heavyweights from the scientific and medical community.

Last month leaked draft guidelines from the World Health Organisation – WHO – suggested the organisation is considering halving the recommended daily intake of sugar from ten teaspoons to five. WHO’s “global strategy on diet” also says an unhealthy diet is a major risk factor for chronic disease and recommends reducing sugar intake to help prevent conditions like type 2 diabetes and dental problems :: Read the full article »»»»
