    [–] 'For the Pacific it's always about cash': Environment Minister in diplomatic incident over climate change Niscellaneous 3 points ago in australia

    PR spin. All politicians undergo PR training before they enter politics to deflect, muddy the waters, and instigated whataboutism. No politician in recent memory has honestly answered a question, they just give vague answers

    Everything from curing cancer to purify the air.

    Can they do the same with Himalayan Salt lamps?

    [–] Zed Seselja says he didn't know 'OK to be white' history Niscellaneous 9 points ago in australia

    Is history something that isn't taught anymore? Or do they only focus on Australian History? I sure as shit remember learning about WWI and WWII and the propoganda associated with them.

    Maybe my upbringing was different.

    [–] Internet access should be classified as essential service like water and electricity in rentals: experts Niscellaneous 16 points ago in australia

    Not yet at least anyway. Given how many essential services are transitioning to online services, it will become essential. Any unfortunately, a lot of people where online services are limited or non-existent will be left out in the dust.

    [–] Privatising WestConnex is the biggest waste of public funds for corporate gain in Australian history Niscellaneous 11 points ago in australia

    There are some examples from developing countries. But poor examples like the one posted far out strip good examples. In Australia, it's particularly bad because of the constant moving of politicians to private industries whom still have influence in the federal, state or local level.

    [–] Privatising WestConnex is the biggest waste of public funds for corporate gain in Australian history Niscellaneous 121 points ago in australia

    The NSW government has confirmed it will sell 51% of WestConnex — the nation’s biggest road infrastructure project — to a consortium led by Transurban, the nation’s biggest toll road corporation.

    NSW treasurer Dominic Perrottet described the A$9.3 billion sale to one of his party’s more generous donors as a “very strong result”.

    I would describe it differently: the biggest misuse of public funds for corporate gain in Australia’s history.
