  1. Oh....I heard her interviewed on radio yesterday morning. I didn't twig at the time it was her. Interesting interview.

    Restaurant in Melbourne!

    One of the "successful" chefs who are now in legal hot water for "accidentally" underpaying their staff millions?

    You may not have seen any but there has been ongoing monitoring of climbing numbers since at least the 1990s (when it was 74%). In 2010 it was 38% and by 2015 down to 16.2%

    The weather in Tasmania today

    Max temperature for this October so far in Devonport is 1.2 above average - so not too shabby.

    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    Next will come "witch hunt" and "fake news"....just as soon as he's found the right page from Trump's Little Blue Book of Denials and Lies.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Apparently the Kurds deserve to be abandoned because they didn't help with D Day evacuations of Normandy. The man is certifiably insane.
  8. Did you read the links you were given to your similar query on Sunday? The many factors to be considered are listed in those links.

    Parks Australia and the management board of the Uluru-Kata Tjuta national park have been surveying numbers since at least the 1990s (when 74% of visitors climbed it). I'm sorry if they didn't advise you. I'm sure they'll apologize if you ask nicely.

    In the 2018/19 financial year 395,000 people visited Uluru. Of those, 87% chose not to climb the rock ie. 343,000 non climbers. Doesn't look like much foot shooting will be happening.

    Australia and Climate Change

    So you were really in Perth, USA - they have 2 -...or watching the Foxtel adult channel?

    No one's being asked to hand anything back. You are being asked to respect someone's wishes when you visit their ancestral home. Do you have a tanty because you are asked not to ride off-road in Windsor Great Park - or do you think the custodians have the right to set limits to activities there? It's not as if there aren't a zillion other places for sheeple to climb in Oz - with much more interesting views.
  13. Iran has bigger fish to fry with the UK than with Australia....going back decades (to at least the 1970s). So it will be looking for more leverage. Australia still hasn't been able to secure the release of the Australian based female academic who has dual Australian-British nationality.

    Home and Away

    Yes, I agree. Loved it back then. Then stopped watching once it turned soap operafied.

    Rename it? The British were the ones who renamed it. Invaded someone else's territory, renamed everything with Anglo/Celtic names, claimed "ownership" and territorial rights to use the land as they pleased. What's ridiculous is throwing a tanty because you are, belatedly, being asked to show some respect.
