do you think people will be allowed to make violins?

****, we should have done this earlier. This is brilliant.
Haha he threw out four and has Julie Bishop on a warning already. This is comedy gold.
Brilliant this is. What a move. Shows what happens when you move to disendorse one of your own in a hung parliament. Extraordinary day.
Hoping Gillard shuts down qustion time too. After one question.

Still a wat to go to beat the tear gas used in South Korean parliament the other day..
It really is a grubby move from the Government not to nominate their own Speaker. I
t feeds into the perception that Gillard's a single-dimension, political machine; willing to do or saying anything.

In general though, despite poor recent returns, savings are always best housed within the superannuation environment, as earnings on those savings (e.g. interest) are taxed at just 15% in contrast to outside superannuation where they are taxed at your marginal rate.
Another political assasination.

Gillard Sinks the Slipper in
Factional warlords give Jenkins the pink slip.
The (as yet) largely unreported aspect in all this is Rudd's role in in visiting Slipper's seat last week. He was obviously in on it.
Surely once the Libs started the process of preselecting someone else in that guy's seat people in the party would have expected this might happen? I mean if you're going down you may as well go down in style!

hear ye, smear ye!
In December 2002 Slipper felt the need to visit a toilet during a parliamentary sitting. Somehow, he found himself in the disabled toilet – and when he had completed his business, he couldn’t get out. He pushed and pulled at the door before hitting the panic button. Four parliamentary attendants hurried to his aid. Disabled toilets, it was gently explained to him, have sliding doors.
