The best example was the Fairy Penguins.Originally Posted by CraigYeah that is the thing I never seem to understand, people (academics/pc losers) move to ban something because they are worried it will offend somebody when it clearly doesn't nor do they even ask if it does offend them. Like changing 'Happy Christmas' to 'Happy Holidays' because it they are worried it will offend 'non-Christians' yet they go out buy gifts and the like for their children and that anyway.
Maybe it is just me.
Anyway I find it quite remarkable how at a federal level, love them or hate them, the Libs/Nationals are very much united and yet there are so many divisons in the ALP federally. Yet (only speaking for Queensland) the Libs/Nats couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewry if they tried. That is what cost them the state election here. Replace a popular leader in Bob Quinn for some idiot called Bruce Flegg (the amount of gaffles he made was amazing) who hadn't been in politics for very long.
Anyway despite how much the Unions and the ALP say that Howard must be voted out because of the IR Reforms (I have never been forced onto anything, and if anything I earn more and work less hours then my last job. I did nearly have job at place where they build cars but he rans rather dodgy and I didn't get it because his offsider was staying on), if they can get their act together then they will probably be voted back in. If this isn't a PR boost for the Coalilation then what is?
Anybody agree/disagree? Fuller, SL anybody else perhaps?
