    It's ok. It's definitely not you that's living in a parallel universe.

    Not sure changing people's opinions is the measure of a valid discussion. I do hope you agree though.

    Don’t worry , I do. Look I get that, but these discussions continuously break down to a point where posts need to be deleted and posters warned over forum rules etc. and it just keeps happening , I just don’t understand what the point is of continuing to engage when you know exactly where it’s going to end up.

    There is something wrong with Jones. He is on (I guess) national radio. The Kiwis.... they are our friends. We don't have many.
    She is the elected Prime Minister. And he says that !

    Why Stan Grant remains hopeful about the future of Australia

    I just read this article on Goodes and the AFL. I was still in denial to some extent, but it looks as though we have lost the great man forever from our code. I hope he feels something more positive for the club though.

I know that's how China and the ABC work but it's not morally right. Maybe the thread should be in the sandpit where it really should have been in the first place?

    The funniest thing is I think you could be serious.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.

    He actually is Annie....you're right, if one didn't laugh, one would cry.

    In the minds of the 'entitled' right winger, simply disagreeing is slander and an attack on their 'freedom of speech'....and then they talk about 'morals'. The hypocrisy is mind boggling.

    It's open slather to slander the names of people like Panahi, Bolt, Newman, et al, ...
    *hypocrisy
    I'd like to ask you a question... do you think that Alan Jones' attack on the New Zealand prime minister (a woman), i.e. telling our prime minister (a card carrying happy-clapper) to "shove a sock down her throat" was something that would entice violence against women? Is that OK, or would it be "slander" to pull him up on it? Is it ok if I say that as well as being racist, he's misogynistic? It still makes him lesser of a person.

    Seems the advertisers don't agree with his views either. Not as archaic as some.
