Zak Brown and Michael Andretti are United in Supercars and Extreme E, and fierce rivals in Indycar, so why not also take on your business partner in the highest form of open wheel racing?

https://www.news.com.au/national/victoria/news/victorian-opposition-leader-matthew-guy-calls-for-daniel-andrews-to-resign-amid-ibac-investigation/news-story/2df563e21ca751185caf3a61aa6f3389

So, should Andrews resign, or is this different because he is labor?

It's different because he's a bloke, and the sexist anti corruption boards don't investigate them. That's if you believe some of the Sky News and NewsCorp peanuts that truly believe that.


On another note, from the five minutes I've seen of Dominic Perrotet, (or Perentie as mum put him), he comes across as a decent, genuine dude, despite his strong beliefs, unlike ScoMo, whose attempts at relatabilility just seem false.

It's good to see a younger bunch in charge, even though him being 39, makes him only 10 years older than me. It is something that seems to be lacking in the halls of parliament, so if Dom goes well, hopefully it encourages a few more younger folk to enter the ring.

I'm fully vaxxed now. Sadly, I haven't picked up any 5G capabilities, but for some weird, unknown reason, I now have cravings for Cydectin and Ivomec. It's possible the vaccine has ivomectin in it, so that may be why. :D

I know that people don't take their phones everywhere they go, (I'm one of those), and most stores have someone willing to sign you in or have paper forms to fill in.

How would that that work with the vaccine permission slip?

They have to cater to the same folks that don't take phones with them, so do you have to cart around a paper form all the time to show that you are?

Surely there is a better idea than that?

Probably. He said he is. I can't say that I pay much attention to what the Nats are doing, whether in State or Federal politics. Kind-of hear whatever they're saying in the news, shake head, move on...

That being said, who's next in line as Nationals leader?

I can only think of Kevin Anderson or Adam Marshall throwing their Akubras (or Brigalows) in the ring.

Awww poor John Barilaro being picked on by a youtube user was the last straw? Or the jig is up on the NSW LNP protection racket.

Did he resign on his own free will or did he get a tap on the shoulder by ICAC?

I'm a little surprised that Brad Hazzard or the price minister bloke haven't thrown their hat into the ring as yet.
Too abrasive and argumentative. It's looking like Dominic Perrottet will be the next Premier of NSW, just to let the anti-Gladys types realise that you have to be careful what you wish for. She was to the left of the Moderate faction in the Libs, while 39 y.o. RC father of six Perrottet is well on the right of the Conservative Right faction. Chris Minns, the relatively new leader of State Labor is looking better all the time.

That's the Labor leader?

I've either not being paying attention or NSW Labor haven't really been out there pushing their cause?

The big question remains: How many of the Sydney shows will be considered so boring by Channel 7 that they will only transmit about 30 minutes of racing per day, and probably after midnight if previous efforts are taken into account?



At least two of them. ;)

Mar 4-6 would seem to put to bed early any talk of the F1 labour day weekend in Vic. (the next weekend)

Also means that any covid concerns around that part of the world may have quelled by then. It is pretty bad down that way at the moment.

Was due to have my 2nd dose next Friday but the doc just rang and said come in now if you like.
Into town, jabbed and back home all in just over half an hour.
I'm a bit disappointed though, especially hearing about others having their 5G working properly.
There's absolutely no difference in performance of my internet or my phone...


You might need a reboot as the vaccine might not be compatible with the CDMA network you old blokes still run on.  ;D

Gladys resignation bears fruit. Andrew Constance has quit.

Only to have stand for the next Federal election.

They had Sharri Markson on Sunrise yesterday who suggested that ICAC wouldn't be investigating Gladys if she was a bloke.


Errrr, ICAC have brought down plenty of those in the past.
