Nothing wrong with Bundy but you have to spend your money on something. Just live where you want to and what it costs is what it costs.
Nah, tight arse to the bone. And you are right, nothing wrong with Bundy so why pay more to live in some over crowded tourism mecca where prices are double and many people look down on those who do not appear to be of the same social 'standing' as they are (and I have seen a lot of that over the years).

You get taxed on everything in this area. Went to IGA in Pamona a week ago as I needed some mushrooms, $7 a punnet. Bugger that, and I needed some fuel anyway so drove up to Gympie where diesel is $1.0899 a litre and went to the IGA there. Same mushrooms were $4.99. Only a fool throws away money.

And then we have to fact that the Sunshine coast has priced a great many out of the real-estate market who would want live here to escape the cold down south in their retirements. And they are going further north. And Bundy is an obvious choice. Always the eye on making a buck or two. I am looking at a couple of houses in Moore Park Beach, I might just buy them both.

As the old saying goes, look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves...

The only good thing about the Noosa area now is that you get to look at all the hot backpacker girls in their skimpy bikinis that disappear up their arses. And guess what, they have all disappeared...

The second rate hack speaks. And the left should take notice.

There is a quiet revolution taking place within the Labor Party but it’s not the revolution that radicals dream of.

It is a revolution born of common sense and common people.

A realisation that angry chants and socialistic us-and-them talking points don’t resonate with mainstream Australia.

Indeed, it’s not so much a revolution as a revelation.

But it is still quiet, as quiet as the so-called “Quiet Australians” who elected Scott Morrison when nobody was listening.

I have spent much of the last few weeks talking to central Labor figures.

Not necessarily those in parliament but union leaders, heads of think tanks, ex-ministers and senior advisers.

MPs come and go but these are the always purring engine of the Labor movement.

And they are all saying the same thing: The party must move back to the centre. The heartland calls.

* Wise heads in the party now understand this. The undergraduate dog whistle of class warfare is gone – a sensible move given it is typically activists from the tertiary educated upper-middle class who keep calling for it. Their backs would be first against the wall in any real revolution but they wouldn’t know enough proles to form a firing squad. *

As the great Neville Wran once said, the whole point of the working class is that you want to get out.

Only the grossly overprivileged fetishise the virtues of poverty.

Labor is the party of the worker but the working-class is not the great lumpen mass that arts graduates fantasise about liberating at inner city dinner parties
.

It is a galaxy of smart and streetwise people who are doing everything in their power to take care of their families and maybe even get ahead in life.

Of course there are also those who are cripplingly impoverished and struggling to even survive. The homeless and welfare dependent, those who live from week to week or day to day, for whom every sunset is a both a small victory and a terrifying new challenge.

These are people I know, who I once was, and I can promise you the last things they care about are critical race theory or intersectional feminism. I’m also pretty sure they don’t give a s**t about diversity quotas at the Oscars.

Seems the second rate's credibility has just improved.
May take a while for the stigma to wash off though.

Listening to the news this morning, Vic Parliament, etc, and this song popped into my head.

Maybe there is hope :).

If he does that we then know how low he really is.
He just like Gladys is having trouble with his recollection. Only been grilled for 90 minutes.

"I still can't recall that," Mr Maguire said.

Maguire: "I can't recall what reason. I just didn't."

When Mr Maguire stops says he doesn't recall, Mr Robertson pulls up a log from September, 2014 noting Mr Maguire was briefed on the code of conduct.

"Does that refresh your memory that you had a briefing about the Parliamentary code of conduct?" Mr Robertson asks him.
