The Commonwealth GamesThe Commonwealth consists of 53 nations 25% which are multiracial multiethnic and multireligious. 40% of young people and 30% of the world's population with 78% control of the world's oceans. One needs to ask why Peter Dutton fails to recognize most of those nations yet remains a monarchist. Why most of the athletes competing in the games on the Gold Coast would be rejected if they sought asylum here. Yet the Commonwealth Games represents something significantly different than the Olympic Games. Somehow winning is less important than participating. It's a bit like a platypus really hard to describe but recognizable when you see it. Why can't the ultra-Conservatives in Australia recognize the spirit of Commonwealth?
“The headline has become the fact that it’s not changing," and News Corp controls the headline. Government by media has become commonplace staid and do nothing thanks to the assistance of commentators like Andrew Bolt Newspoll their tool.

He added: “If the Newspoll is saying, again and again, you’re failing rather than that there’s light at the end of the tunnel, it becomes self-fulfilling ... The party says things still aren't working.
“That makes Turnbull’s job much more difficult. He won’t get any credit for having a good week."
When polls were better, a leader felt more able to take risks, he said.
“The lesson is to forget about the polls and get on with it. Which is absolutely what the electorate would like to see.”
Mr Stirton said a broad interpretation of all polls indicated voters would like “to have Turnbull but not his party and would like to have Labor but not its leader”.
Mr Stirton said the right wing of the Liberal Party - and in particular, the division being created by its open tussles with Mr Turnbull - were turning people off the party as a whole. Stirton polling expert
Unions will campaign ahead of this year's state election for the Andrews government to make ‘wage theft’ a crime and punishable by up to 10 years in jail.
The move by the Victorian Trades Hall Council and its Young Workers Centre is part of a growing legislative push in Australia to try to turn the deliberate underpayment of wages into a criminal offence.
They did it for 230 years to Indigenous Australia, women, our youth, newly arrived immigrants tourists the handicapped and the unemployed. Billions of dollars and there for the take. The worst that could happen was a slap on the wrist. If an Aboriginal kid took a Mars bar it was jail time in Dondale and Andrew Bolt praised the justice done.

“When you don’t control the national borders, in the end, you will be just like these South African townships and farms, you will be forced to defend your life and your family at ... your fences.
“That’s what could happen if you are creating these multiculturalist societies where diversity reaches a point and a level where it becomes toxic, violent and dangerous.”
Within months of the issue going on high rotation in the alt-right-o-sphere, Australian politicians spoke up.
“Just imagine the reaction here in Australia if a comparable number of farmers had been brutally murdered by squatters intent on driving them off their land ... we would say this is a national crisis,” said former prime minister Tony Abbott.
He was following trailblazer Peter Dutton: last month the Home Affairs Minister told The Daily Telegraph that white South African farmers deserved “special attention” such as fast-tracked visas because of their “horrific circumstances”.
Dutton, in turn, was apparently reacting to a news report and strident columns in News Corp newspapers.
And for this, Sellner claims credit.
