Posted in: Australia accuses China of undermining world trade See in context

Can't wait for the rhetoric that will explode from the bowels of the Global Times. For China to say the sanctions against Australia are not politically motivated demonstrates the warped mindset of their Govt. Hope all their constituents enjoy the cold winter which, by banning coal imports, will bring unnecessary hardship upon the lives of millions. Still, as long as the hierachy are warm and cosy in their plush surroundings all is well.

Watching his speech at the National Press Club reinforced the concept of what a bumbling pawn of the IOC Coates is. Can only imagine the kicking and screaming performance that will ensue when another attempt to oust him as Australia's representative surfaces.

As if the CCP will allow them to suffer humiliation at the hands of USA/Canada.

Would be worth enjoying though!

Excuse me, say the sponsors could you please make a court appearance to justify our commitment to you?

Scenario: She wins her first match- "I'm happy with the world again!" She loses her second game, "I'm stressed, I need a break." Drama queens belong on Broadway, not centre courts.

So just do everyone a favour and fade gracefully into the background.

Memo to OGS- if you want to win, you have to play your best team. They are paid millions to play, not sit and watch.

She obviously was not too stressed at the recent Emmy Awards.

Have her sponsors jumped on her bandwagon too early? Do her contractual arrangements have a "no play no pay" clause? I think not.

You just have to realise when to cut your losses. If it puts their noses out of joint, so be it. Lengthy delays, cost blowouts are not acceptable when a contract states a time frame and expenditure.

Besides, they have never gotten over Australia producing higher quality champagne. They whinged so much that Australia was forced to rename to "sparkling wine." Cancelling a cocktail party just means that the taxpayers of France have saved some money.

So John Setka can identify everyone that is not a CMFEU member? Not many people can remember 30,000 faces that are registered as CMFEU members. Must be discomforting for him to realise that he is actually not god's gift to the union movement. Maybe he could donate some of his excessive salary to those who have had to stand down. (Pigs might fly too!)

Posted in: Australian PM rejects Chinese criticism of nuclear sub deal See in context

Zhao Lijian, the quintessential spokesman, reading what is written for him, refusing to answer any questions deemed to be critical and with the oratory skills of a lump of granite. A ladder climber in the true sense of Chinese characteristics.

Smashing tennis racquets seems to be Novak's choice of expression. God knows what will happen if the umpires have the intestinal fortitude to issue a game penalty. Time to penalise these tantrums with more appropriate measures.

Posted in: Osaka should take whatever time off she needs See in context

If you are unhappy when you win or lose, time to put your cue in the rack. Do some volunteer work to gain a different perspective on life. Often, the pressures of life come from those close to you who see a personal benefit from your own success. Time to reassess your goals.

The police did not arrive until after 11am. Did the daughter normally sleep in that late? The mother did not check? There are more questions than answers here.

Monday - island emerges, capsizing 30 Chinese illegal fishing boats.

Tuesday - the CCP enact a State of Emergency, fuel up nuclear weaponry.

Wednesday - the WHO send an emissary to investigate if this was the source of Covid.

Thursday - PLA paratroopers arrive and plant rice.

Friday - North Korea request rice importing rights.

Saturday/ Sunday - the island submerges, everybody goes home for the weekend.

Just how much money does he need? Hopefully, he is a generous philanthropic guy who doesn't publicise this aspect. Millions of euros certainly changed his mood quickly.

To those privileged few who complain how tough it was, you were no doubt informed of the limitations before you went, so the choice was yours. Just be thankful that you had an opportunity to display your talent, with all expenses paid.

Be interesting to see the fate of any Chinese athlete who did not win gold. Anything less is considerable an abject failure and unleashes their social media bad mouthing.

No cabin crew should have to put up with that crap behaviour. Federal police in Sydney must have been on a tea break. Fine them, shame them and ban them.

There are a multiple reasons why this occurs. The bottom line however is that three lives have tragically been lost. Having no obvious connection between them strengthens the assertation that social media may have been involved, which raises various scenarios. The beckoning question is- who wrote the note?

The young can be so vulnerable to online predators, if this is the case. Whatever the situation, three families now have to endure heartache for the rest of their lives and many do not recover. RIP
