    I'm likely to have a crack at this Roll call?

    PBK Shipping

    PBK have been OK of late. I just haven't used them recently because of limited range available

    Sharks vs Broncos

    Something like that...

    Sharks vs Broncos

    Agreed, but that scenario would make my life a bit awkward Every team needs a Paul Gallen, but we're the only team which has one. Everyone else can suffer in their jocks

    Melbourne are definitely the new Manly. Mostly because of Smith, Slater and Gould. Certainly made 2016 all the sweeter Can anyone remember the last time Melbourne scored and Bee Sting Head didn't say 'UN - BELIEVABLE?'

    Darwinism should usually take care of people like that

    Plastic bag ban.....

    1) Nothing there about how many shopping bags end up in the oceans. Just a big scary number about how many get used 2) My mistake. I withdraw and apologise 3) We are penalising ourselves for a non-discernible benefit

    Plastic bag ban.....

    1) So you don't really know how serious the problem is that you're trying to solve? 2) Free shopping bags are also biodegradable 3) Not so. We're talking about cost-benefit I have asked for more specific data, but given your inability (or unwillingness) to answer question #1, I have to assume that you care more about feeling smug than the actual impact of what you propose. As shown by your last sentence

    Plastic bag ban.....

    'We're a rich country so we have to Do Something even though the impact of other countries dwarfs the effect of our self-nullifying gestures. ' Hmmm, where have I heard that before? Two questions: - What proportion of marine plastic is comprised of shopping bags? - How is rubbish encased in a purchased bin liner any less harmful than rubbish encased in a free shopping bag?

    So you want me to buy thicker biodegradable bin liners instead of biodegradable shopping bags... What do you propose we do about countries like China, Indonesia and the Philippines as the source of the vast majority of plastic bags in the oceans?

    Do any of those articles take into account any increase in sales of bin liners to replace shopping bags? Those are the companies which your super fund should be investing in

    lol This whole 'issue' is all kinds of awesome A greeny so-called initiative that will both raise revenue and cut costs for big evil corporations whilst doing three-fifths of f*ck all for the environment Well done guys, keep it up

    Well you're talking about people who think that despite packing meat and two veg downstairs and having a body full of Y chromosomes, you can still call yourself a woman if you like And then they call the other side 'anti-science' So, yeah. They are... *Disclaimer* Of course the far right are also a bunch of arse-hats

    No Prince. No. The best way for society to become inclusive is by holding events like these which highlight our differences...

    Am I turning into a right winger?

    Of course. They were allies, after all...
  19. IronJimbo

    Am I turning into a right winger?

    And that's the key The left will call anything they don't agree with 'hate speech' in order to shut people down so they don't have to bother thinking of ways to rationally refute them

    A Dragons jersey is usually a bit of a giveaway

    Am I turning into a right winger?

    Ah, the old compass I wonder how a thread to debate the actual questions would go...
  22. IronJimbo

    Am I turning into a right winger?

    A bit of both I'd imagine. That's the difference between liberals and leftists - a genuine liberal will usually be prepared to agree to disagree, but a leftist will try to shut you up

    Am I turning into a right winger?

    There are two simple questions which can show whether you are indeed coming to your senses: 1. Which is more important: (a) equality of opportunity; or (b) equality of outcome? 2. Who does free speech apply to? (a) everyone; or (b) only people who agree with me If you answered (a), well done If you answered (b), you and Parky can still be mates

    That's because he would have had the place vetted And we all know that Bill does vetting better than anyone
