Topher Strikes Again. You cant keep a good man down!

Strip away all the politics, the spin, the environmental hyperbole, then do some basic research, examine the facts, apply some rational thought and hey presto, Topher cuts through all the BS.

PS. Although Topher rightly places the problem on Tony Bourke's doorstep, John Howard deserves some major stick for this debacle. It was his government that introduced the Water Act 2007 which is the source of the problem.

My Blackberry is Not Working!

Ronnie Corbett, still going strong! Imagine Ronny Barker as the shopkeeper, alas it wasn't to be.
Unfortunately, I am very familiar with the phrase "My Blackberry is not working". Part of my job at work is to support the blinking things.

How Many of These Ten Political Principles Do You Believe In?

  1. Liberty as the primary political value

  4. Rule of Law
  5. Civil Society
  6. Spontaneous Order
  7. Free Markets
  8. Toleration
  9. Peace
  10. Limited Government
If you agree with 5 or more of these political principles, you might just be a Libertarian or a Liberal in the classical sense. This short video by Dr. Nigel Ashford succinctly explains the 10 core principles of the classical liberal and Libertarian view of society and the proper role of government.
