With the TV media warned of the Federal Police raid on the Metalworkers union office it is a clear indication of just how desperate the Turnbull LNP mob are to be seen to be doing something!
This police state action follows on from Malcolm Turnbull’s photo opp with the SWAT squad.
Clearly both were organised to portray him and the LNP as being prepared to defend “The Land of OZ” to the death against those nasty union persons.
The Heydon “Mickey Mouse “ royal commission helped drag the LNP just over the line at the last federal election on the basis of scare tactics and it is obvious this latest action is designed to create a similar political atmosphere.
Hopefully , the people will see this continuing personal attack upon Bill Shorten for what it truly is.
It is nothing more than a distraction from the problems created for the nation by the LNP and the ongoing sniping of Tony Abbott upon a moribund Malcolm Turnbull.
Joseph Goebbells, Adolph Hitler’s Minister for Propaganda used similar tactics to destroy criticisms of the German government in the 1930-40’s.
With some of the LNP members holding similar extreme Right Wing views perhaps we should not be too surprised “A back to the future LNP” has re-jigged the Goebbell’s tactics.

Arnold Jago what hypocrisy!
Voting against gay marriage is a loss of freedom?
You conveniently quote the warm and fuzzy bits from the book of infantilism regarding the bible and ignore Leviticus from said book that states that if a man lies with a man and not a woman he is an abomination and shall be condemned to death.
Or elsewhere if a woman does not scream during rape she will receive the same fate.
Such is the love of your god?
So puerile is the bible that after scientists have proven its many falsities even the Vatican has declared it cannot be taken literally.
They didn’t mind lying to their gullible flock for a thousand years though.
I can only say thank god I am an atheist for it was your god that declared all humans including children are evil.
This being so your expressions of love have no validity in the pretext of your religious dissertations. To be free is to reject the obvious constraints of religion.

I find it extraordinary that Skydive should be requesting virtually unlimited number of parachutist to be released at one time given the two fatal incidents that have occurred this year under their management.
A single fatality in WA and a triple fatality at Mission Beach.
It is reported both incidents were a result of mid air collisions between parachutists.
Clearly current the level of operations is unsafe.
The should be no increase in the number of parachutist released than the current permitted eight until such time as the results of the corronial Inquests into the two fatal incidents has been released and studied by the Australian Parachute Federation Safety Committee.
Then and only then should there be any consideration to changing the maximum permitted numbers jumping at one time be considered.
Such consideration by WCC must include a documented safety review of Skydive operations by the Parachute Federation.
I note that Skydive currently are dropping 10 tandem parachutists at a time now.
What is WCC and the Parachute Federation doing to ensure Skydive comply with its licence conditions?
