    Every man and his dog knew that too. It was hardly a secret.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Man Obeid really has a face you want to punch. One of those ultimate slime ball politicians. Just added nothing to the state at all, solely involved in public service for his own profit.

    ****ing NSW and its backroom deals and kniving leaders in the back.

    Not like anything of that **** happens in the great state of Victoria.

    Gillard needs to step aside (i.e. gtfo) right now. This can't go on.

    surprised theres been no mention of the labor party's media reform laws in this thread? david feeney's attempt to explain the "benefits" of the reforms was worse than kohli's slips catching

    Sydney Uni staff going on strike for 48 hours next week.

    That makes it 3 days of class-time down in the first month. Not good for students. Both sides of this need to sort their **** out.

    Obviously capable but seems to have a massive chip on her shoulder as she is at pains to mention that she is a self made woman at every opportunity

    With her bulk, you'd think she could carry it and be happy with her billions
