  1. Brave performance by South Africa in the first test against India. Elgar is a gem and it's good to see De Kock back amongst the runs. Pretty impressive opening debut from Rohit! Back in Australia, the Shield season starts on Wednesday. And given the post-Ashes holes in Australia's batting lineup (opener and number five are vacant), it's going to be a very high stakes start to the summer.
  2. This Kyle Sandilands thing. Shouldn't the people who supported Folau be demanding Kyle not be sacked? There seems to be some inconsistency here...
  3. No cigar for the Giants, but at least abortion has now been decriminalised in our nation's most populous state. Not sure who to go for in the NRL final...I'm not a fan of Canberra generally but seeing the Roosters win two in a row is equally nauseating.
  4. The Giants finally win a prelim! Happy to see Collingwood miss out on another GF...give someone else a go!
  5. Whoops...got the spelling confused with NZ's left-arm opening bowler! I think the doco is worth a watch though.
  6. The new (and second in as many months!) Adam Goodes documentary "The Australian Dream" is worth a look. It certainly has a particular slant on the controversy but they did put Boult's views into the mix for a dissenting voice.
  7. Maybe so for students, but what about staff? Is it right that my sister would be sacked for telling her colleagues that she is gay? Also, we might want to change the thread title. Looks like the Libs are keeping ICAC in business after all with a Minister resigning ahead of an investigation.
  8. Not to be outdone, the NSW Libs are apparently going to call a spill motion in protest against modernizing the legal framework around abortion. What a joke.
  9. My memory is that if you "come to a nuisance" it is much harder to get a remedy. In other words, even if social norms are changing, you won't be successful in displacing "the way things are around here." Lord Denning said it best in Miller v Jackson:

    People tend to have quite strong opinions about Blood Meridian one way or the other. It is the slog of slogs and not for everyone. I wouldn't persist if you didn't enjoy the first third. It's not as if it changes much from there.
