    Port Stephens where I now live did too, but there aren't any rivers there, just lots of trees down and beaches eroded. My daughter told me in the harbour even the waves were crashing onto the road.

    I grew up there and never saw that.

    Re: Why are Australians so stupid?

    Good one Refuse, nice pic in the karma thread.

    I miss Paul, he's the man, when he criticized Mahathir as being 'recalcitrant', brilliant.

    Here's part of a recent interview...

    PAUL KEATING: Individual workplace agreements, AWA's. And what has the last Labor government's laws, the Keating IR changes given Australia? Two per cent inflation for a decade, a 20 per cent real increase in wages, and three per cent trend productivity, doubling what we had under Howard and Fraser in the 70's.

    ELEANOR HALL: Now you might say that they're once and for all reforms, but what's wrong with the Howard Government coming in and saying, look we want to go one better, we want to improve the economy even further?

    PAUL KEATING: But it's not one better, it's one backwards. Howard's change was always ideological and nasty.

    The point is - let me explain the point. Individual workplace agreements are of their essence, anti-productive.

    See, Howard paints this picture, we took the Keating changes and we went on to do more things. Well what's happened is trend productivity has dropped from three per cent a year under me to one per cent now.

    ELEANOR HALL: But it…

    PAUL KEATING: No hang on, just a second. From three to one.

    Now on this floor at the ABC here, there must be 150 people. If you went out there and said to them, look we're going to make an agreement for the next three years or four with the ABC and we want three per cent productivity a year out of it, or two per cent productivity, together you could all do something.

    But if they just take Eleanor Hall by herself and say, you will give us an increase in productivity, how can you, individually? How can you? What are you going to do, talk louder? Talk more? Be at work earlier?

    I mean, the fact is the key to enterprise productivity is enterprise barg himaining, the key to it is the collective and that's what Howard hates. Howard is an old, antediluvian, 19th century person who wanted to stomp forever when he got his chance with control of the Senate, he wanted to stomp on ordinary people's rights to organise themselves at work…

    Re: Why are Australians so stupid?

    Always liked Keating.

    A prick of a man, but one you would want on your side watching the books.

    He should recontest and run for parliament again.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    I used to knock him and call him "Poor Cheating" but only because I liked Bob better
    ( I talked with him on the phone, Did the same with Mal before him ) and Gough even more. I loved his ability to detract from his knockers . he is brilliant in that respect.If only he could of seen out his vision with our neibours.

    Looking at what we got in power now a "drovers dog would be preferable"

    Re: Why are Australians so stupid?

    Paul Keating qoutes about John Howard:







    On Prime Minister (formerly Opposition Leader), John Howard (right):

    "The little desiccated coconut is under pressure and he is attacking anything he can get his hands on"


    "For Mr Howard to get to the high moral ground, he would first need to climb out of the volcanic hole he had dug for himself over the last decade. It is like one of those diamond mine holes in South Africa. They are about a mile underground. He would have to come a mile up to get to even equilibrium let alone have any contest in morality with Kevin Rudd."
    "What we have got is a dead carcass, swinging in the breeze, but nobody will cut it down to replace him."


    "He's wound up like a thousand day clock..."


    "...the brain-damaged Leader of the Opposition..."
    (Of his 1986 leadership) "From this day onwards, Howard will wear his leadership like a crown of thorns, and in the parliament I'll do everything to crucify him."
    "He is the greatest job and investment destroyer since the bubonic plague."
    "But I will never get to the stage of wanting to lead the nation standing in front of the mirror each morning clipping the eyebrows here and clipping the eyebrows there with Janette and the kids: It's like 'Spot the eyebrows'."


    "I am not like the Leader of the Opposition. I did not slither out of the Cabinet room like a mangy maggot..."


    "He has more hide than a team of elephants."


    "I do not want to hear any mealymouthed talk from the Member for Benelong."


    "The principle saboteur, the man with the cheap fistful of dollars."


    "Come in sucker." During Great Debate '96: "You're so rude!"
