Ya gotta laugh!

Seems the only bit that Bill will say categorically is that Labor didn't pay any people smugglers to turn back, probably because they didn't seem to have an idea how to stop them or make them do that.

He pulls the "operational bull****" though on whether they paid them BEFORE they took off from Indonesia.

They're all ****ing worms yet half you blokes refuse to see or acknowledge that and only post what suits your flawed arguments.

Meanwhile, in North Western NSW, Barnaby confirms that being free range is a lifestyle choice for chooks.

FEDERAL Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce says commonsense must prevail when it comes to applying “black and white” rules on the “arbitrary actions of a chook”.

The New England MP said free-range egg producers attempting to comply with the law must be shown “some latitude” by the country’s peak competition regulator.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) pursuit of farming operations for making “misleading” claims over free-range eggs has angered the industry.

The backlash prompted state and federal ministers to announce last Friday the development of an enforceable national standard on egg labelling.

NSW Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation Victor Dominello said the average Australian consumes about 220 eggs a year.

He said it was therefore imperative that labelling allowed consumers to make informed decisions when purchasing free-range or caged eggs.

“This is a significant win for consumers and producers and I thank my counterparts for demonstrating leadership on what has been a difficult issue,” he said.

“Growing uncertainty about the definition of free-range has meant many consumers have lost confidence in the existing regulation of egg labelling.”

A recent Choice report claimed shoppers were paying twice as much for eggs labelled free-range, but the absence of a clear definition rendered the term pointless.

Mr Joyce said a key aspect of his upcoming agriculture White Paper would be to resource the ACCC with more experts in farming to avoid “confusion between regulation and reality”.

“A lot of chooks that have the opportunity to be free-range choose to stay in the airconditioned premises where they slept the night before,” he said.

“I think there should always be the latitude for people who are genuinely trying to be compliant not be faced with penalties for things that are basically out of their control.

“It’s not that (the ACCC) deliberately goes out to be litigious or over-prescriptive, it’s just that ... they don’t have a wide enough skill set in the agricultural sector.”

Yes, we now know the Government is implicated - via a government agency, probably ASIS. We also now know that Australian governments have been paying people smugglers since as early as 2010, so previous governments are also implicated. Those earlier Labor governments actually initiated such payments. Maybe Bill Shorten should have researched before he blundered in. Trying to "do an Abbott" (after also refusing to confirm or deny) by being devious in saying that Labor has never paid money to people smugglers to turn back boats doesn't do his standing any good at all.

Australia will never be a winner in any FTA whilst we are the smaller party, what are going to do sell China iron ore at an even lower price - Liberals ideals, fact is not a reality

Freudian slip by Abbott?

"They never did a single Turnbull"

Someone's sweating about their leadership.

Under the FTA deal between China and Australia signed off, it does include a little item stating that Chinese investments over $150 Million can bring in their own workforce.

Lets just say a $150 Million + Chinese owned coal mine was about to go through the construction and operation phase. During this phase, the company has made a promise to use local labour throughout the project.

Under the new FTA, do they still have to abide by this promise?

yeah right, welcome to the world of FTA's, the bastards have no idea, the one that Howard signed with USA was pretty bad as well

Good-bye Australian manufacturing, all the bastards are after is our beautiful produce, livestock and natural minerals, they have no intention of taking anything else, it is all about getting their poxy produced garbage into Australia a lot easier and cheaper
