Laocoon2 says: March 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm Victoria – you are indeed correct! Thanks for that. victoria says: March 1, 2012 at 1:51 pm the rumours re Abbott personal situation have been doing the rounds for quire some time. myk42 says: March 1, 2012 at 2:31 pm Let he who without sin … markjs says: March 1, 2012 at 3:11 pm Gotta love this one :) Damien Saunders @damienps Follow Looking great TAbbott!! pic.twitter.com/46Ku4TJ3 markjs says: March 1, 2012 at 3:15 pm Stephen Smith will be confirmed as Foreign Minister by JG tomorrow… Don’t ask me how I know….If I tell you…I’ll have to kill you!! ruawake says: March 1, 2012 at 3:22 pm Stephen Smith will be confirmed as Foreign Minister by JG tomorrow Makes sense to me. I always thought it was up to him to chose between FA and Defence. Laocoon2 says: March 1, 2012 at 3:27 pm Professor White said: ”The government could be put in the embarrassing situation of having a desalination plant in operation under its contractual obligations and at the same time having Warragamba spilling over.” Read more: http://www.smh.com.au/environment/water-issues/desalination-test-may-waste-millions-20120218-1tfv0.html#ixzz1nqbC1T3c That story is from a few weeks ago. Warragamba starting spilling over today. The people of NSW are lumbered with a ridiculous contract for the desalination plant by some bizarre illogic of off balance sheet liabilities (ie contract to pay money to private owners of infrastructure) is somehow considered different (indeed, better!) than on balance sheet government debt, at lower cost, for exactly the same asset. Crazy. More crazy to the extent that it is driven by discredited ratings agencies. Darren Laver says: March 1, 2012 at 3:53 pm Crikey is giving me the bloody shits. you cannot get around its stupid mobile site without it then pushing you out of the blogs, only when you then push to get back it revets to the stupid mobile site again. A circular trap to send you around the bend! I wish they’d spend more money on their web interface and servers than paying Bernad Keane money to spew crap we can get for free from News Ltd and ABC! myk42 says: March 1, 2012 at 3:53 pm I can confirm that I was not approached for the role of FM… Darren Laver says: March 1, 2012 at 3:56 pm it is a pity Smith ever left Foreign Affairs. i understand DFAT were less than enamoured with his replacement in 2010 :-) leone says: March 1, 2012 at 4:02 pm Smith was pushed out because Mr Ego wanted his spot. He was pretty angry about it at the time. If he wants the job back then he should have it. Smith did a good job before, some say much better than The Ego, he just didn’t spend his time telling us all how great he was and where he was going next and who he had talked to yesterday. He just got on with it. ruawake says: March 1, 2012 at 4:18 pm I am sure ACCI and the HIA are thrilled that the media are examining toenail clippings re Bob Carr instead of helping them persuade the Senate to drop amendments to the ABCC legislation. They have become a joke. victoria says: March 1, 2012 at 4:20 pm ruswake Do the senate seek amendments re coercive powers? ruawake says: March 1, 2012 at 4:27 pm Do the senate seek amendments re coercive powers? No the reps introduced amendments and they passed. The ACCI and HIA are going ballistic, the Libs tried to get the amendments sent to committee but failed. Another case of Abbott failing to look after business. They are not happy he has ignored the issue. victoria says: March 1, 2012 at 4:33 pm ru I know the bill passed the HOR at last sitting at same time as private health bill. Wilkie and Bandt voted for, and W & O against. I was under impression Greens in senate were attempting amendments re coercive powers which has ben retained in the bill. Of course the Libs voted against abolishing the current ABCC.
