Marriage is prostitution, says ABC panelist

Written by Editor on .

 The campaign against marriage continues, intitiated by Marx and Engels. It is part only of a wider agenda to destroy traditional values and through such tools as the national curriculum, to take away the memory of the nation.
Jane Caro, announced on the ABC Q&A that she would be saying '' something really dangerous.''

“When you have a society where women’s main currency is really their sexual favours, their ability to reproduce, then a lot of what women do is a... form of prostitution,” she began.

“I would argue that traditional marriage, which included conjugal rights, particularly when women were not able to go to work or were fired when they first got married, and were basically selling their bodies and their reproductive rights to their husband, he bought them, by giving her room and board in return, was a form of prostitution.

“We really have to discuss what we mean by prostitution. At least the women who choose it as a career choice, freely and uncoerced — that's very, very important — only have to put up with the customer for about an hour.

“Once upon a time, it was a lifetime ladies, a lifetime.”


''Planned'' population growth- whose plans?

Written by Editor on .

Surely it is time to consider our immigration policy. When so many jobs have been exported to Asia as a result of government policies, what are the aims of large scale immigration which is essentially to our major cities and certainly not to support agriculture or mining ?
We say this in the light of an extraordinary forecast about housing needs in Sydney and we assume other cities.

Former NSW state architect Chris Johnson has forecast Sydney needs to build 100 new high-rise apartment towers a year for the next 50 years to protect suburban life from being ruined by over-development as the city’s population grows. “Five thousand new towers, containing 110 apartments each, would provide 550,000 new homes — that will accommodate only a third of our planned population growth over the next 50 years,’’ Mr Johnson said.

Child sex abuse tolerated

Written by Editor on .

The gross sexual abuse of about 1400 children, some as young as 11, by Pakistani men in the English town Rotherham went unreported over a 16 year period. This was because staff were afraid of being accused of racism, and no doubt the legal ...consequences of that.

The children were repeatedly raped, beaten, intimated and trafficked to other towns to be shared by other criminals.

Some victims were doused with petrol and threatened with being set alight and terrorised with guns. Others were made to witness brutally violent rapes. They were told they would be the next if they spoke out.

In two cases, fathers had tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused.

But it was the fathers who were arrested when police were called to the scene. The police seemed to fear being accused of being racist.

There is an Australian link to this, apart from laws like section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act which after the Andrew Bolt case may make people just as reticent as the staff in Rotherham.

The Australian link is through the deputy secretary of Victoria's Education Department, Dr Sonia Sharp who is also a committee member of Australia's National Centre Against Bullying.

She was Rotherham's director of children's services between 2005 and 2008.

The department maintains she is an outstanding leader and said her experience in England has helped strengthen Victoria's system.

The Victorian Opposition Leader, Daniel Andrews ( ALP) , said the Government had questions to answer about the appointment of Dr Sharp.

"This is not some junior bureaucrat, this is a senior, perhaps almost the most senior person... that is charged with the welfare and protection, the nourishment, the advancement, the education of our kids, there's answers that need to be provided to this and the Premier and the Minister are the ones to provide them.

Ask the people if they want recall elections, Premier

Written by Editor on .

It's time for Mike Baird to revisit the recall promise, insists Sean Nicholls in The Sydney Morning Herald.

We agree. In fact the question must be put to the people at the next election. 

''No ifs or buts.'' as the  former Liberal leader Barry O'Farrell famously said about another issue, no CSG mining on prime agricultural land.

The government was all for recall elections, at least before the election.

Afterwards they appointed a panel which, no doubt  to their surprise, supported the recall of a government , but not individual MP's. (One member, a prominent Labor lawyer and academic, predictably dissented)

When Alan Jones asked about progress, the Premier's office told him the panel had recommended against recall elections.

When CANdo's Jai Martinkovits tackled a senior minister about this, his answer was surprisingly honest "We're in office now,'' he explained.

As a surprising number of MPs are under examination over corruption claims, it is time the NSW government acted on the report to bring in recall elections for a government, and we believe, for individual MPs.  

A referendum should be put to the people at the next election.  Let the eople decide.

They were the worst

Written by Editor on .

They were the most dysfunctional, wasteful and incompetent governments in the history of our nation – the Rudd and Gillard governments.
''Chapter after chapter of Paul Kelly's book, Triumph and Demise, ''lays bare an awful period for the I’ve belonged to for 47 years,'' writes former senior Labor minister, Graham Richardson.

''Rudd essentially got away with using a four-person subcommittee to run the country because the cabinet allowed him to. No one had the courage to challenge his style, to stand up to his rudeness or belittle him for his mistakes.
''Criticism was rampant but it was in the shadows. We are reminded that Gillard was a tremendously successful deputy who simply could not succeed as the boss. She was hopeless and eerily similar to Rudd in relying on a tiny group of advisers.
''She had absolute faith in her judgment. Yet she was wrong time and again. You can learn from history, and that is what Kelly writes. This should be compulsory reading for anyone who cares how this nation is run.''
