Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing.

Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped.

Surely there are other things to worry about than stopping the boats.

If we do buy all of those un seaworthy boats, wouldn't the smugglers just find more boats to use, and then we will just acquire more of those boats. What do we do of those boats that we buy back?



Use them as the boats to transport the asylum seekers back to where they came from after they have desecrated their own boats to an unseaworthy state

To respond to Bruce in the NRL thread: it is probably the single hardest loss I have had to deal with at Souths to lose Bully. Much worse than Sam Burgess as he didn't symbolise Souths as Bully did. I think a lot will underestimate just how much a loss he will be to Souths but I fully understand how engrossed he is with NZ and I think given that he will make the successful transition that others haven't.

What do we do with the boats?
We fix them to make them more seaworthy and sell them back to the Indonesians!

It really sounds like something Clive would come up with, but its not. The only people who would benefit from this are if your name starts with Sims, and ends in Metal.


LG, that is the most logical suggestion that I have read.

Another beat up. It's been revealed that Rudd wasn't rude to the make up lady from witnesses in the room and she has retracted her account of the event.

Regret not retract!

At the cost of $12.8 million to us for each boat that turns up in our waters, I think that would cover the costs pretty easily if you stop just one?

I think its a great idea. Needs some smoothing over for sure, but with having the on ground policing force there, it would be a lot easier to stop the boats at its source than waiting for them to turn up in our waters. Its not just buying the boats, its gathering intel on the smugglers in their own environment which has to be a benefit. Seems like a pretty drastic solution, but maybe in drastic times...

The funniest line from this election campaign is Labor asking the Libs where the money is coming from.

You're not a surfer Willsy are you? Ever been to Indo...and done a deal with a local...fisherman, cop whatever?

Wait till you see the amount of boats that start turning up...the idea is hair-brained, wackiness....completely...and utterly! Bet they stole it straight from Pauline.....so naive'....

That's fine blade LG. Either way she stuffed up. Witnesses in the room back Rudds version of events.

Big difference Albie!!!

To retract is to admit something you said was wrong.
To regret is to be sorry for opening your mouth which is what she said.

Abbotts lost the plot.

He'll end up paying big money for these boats while fishermen over there will just get new ones built which will end up in the same place.

His maternity leave is a joke as well.
Over 3000 businesses to get taxed , then he'll hand it back. Finally the truth comes through and this ****tard is going to be plundering peoples retirement and shares so some women that live in Double Bay, Toorak or Hamilton get paid more than what most earn to have kids

I'd expect Katter or even Palmer to come up with stupid shyte like this. Not some one that will be leading this country after the next election

One thing, the next 3 years will be entertaining
