By Barddylbach So I’m thinking about kids on Nauru, global warming, the recent by-election and our idiot politicians who dish out cruelty like Smarties, smirk and think they’re smart.  “No party seizes the imagination of the people unless the people know the party stands for certain things.

By Isidoros Karderinis Italy joined the eurozone in 1999, with Prime Minister Massimo d’Alema of the “Democratic Left” party. This fateful participation, which entailed the complete loss of independent monetary policy, is undoubtedly the main cause of the disappointing performance of the Italian economy. The country’s GDP currently stands at EUR 1.75 trillion euro and…

While some were shocked at Alan Jones’ interview of Louise Herron over her insistence that the Opera House sales aren’t just some giant billboard.
