Articles from Pure Poison
This is it, the very last Pure Poison open thread. I think that we’ve said everything that we wanted to about Pure Poison closing down already, but I’d like to take the opportunity once more to say thank you, Pure Poison was more than just Jeremy and I and we will miss all of your contributions, even if we won’t miss moderating them.
As the media demand that politicians PUT ASIDE POLITICS and SAVE LIVES but are vague on the specifics of how exactly to do that, the parliament wrestles with legislation that will SAVE LIVES whilst simultaneously PUTTING LIVES IN DANGER and if only people on the other side to me would put politics aside for a minute and vote with my party then nobody would drown again.
Quick question: has something happened to our government this week that we’ve missed here at Pure Poison? Talking of an action by the Australian government, a columnist at News Ltd writes of ““this farcical boat people regime”.
When did that happen? Have they broken out of detention centres and seized Parliament?
Jeremy (from Victoria) and Dave (from NSW) announce that they’re leaving Crikey at the end of the week.
Coincidence? We’d love to tell you, but we can’t. Yet.
