It’s a new week (in fact, most of Monday seems to have disappeared already), so let’s have a fresh thread. It’s the first sitting week of the new House of Representatives, so by Wednesday we should have a better feel for just how the New Paradigm is shaping up. The Senate, of course, stays in its old configuration until July of next year.

Have at it.

    I was just suggesting that in preference to googling “fair skinned aborigines”. Since they were mentioned in the age news article as the “offending” threads and all, it seems likely that whatever the plaintiffs have in mind is probably contained therein.

    “I’m not necessarily saying I agree with the claim. And given it’s an ongoing court case, I think I’ll just let folks form their own conclusions anyway ”

    You advised me to read the three articles you linked to see evidence of Bolt accusing these individuals of fraud — there’s no such evidence in them that I can see, he clearly believes they don’t deserve the awards they received, but that’s a far cry from calling them frauds, again if you see a quote in them that supports the claim against him, please enlighten me.

    “If you think you’ve got a good argument, write it up and send it to Mr B.”

    I suspect his lawyers are far more capable of defending him than I am, but thanks for the thought.

    Captain Col @ 101, I somehow thought that might be the case.
    Glad that you are still sticking to your ‘many sensible views’ in here.

    I wonder who the fiendish impersonator (they seek him here, they seek him there….) might be?

    Anyone hazard a guess?

    Adam Rope @100, there is a fiendish impersonator over at the ABC. If he’s going to imitate me, he should at least imitate my many sensible views, none of which are represented in amongst that tripe.
