    • The Traveling Wilbur

      UK is weird in this general regard. Youff culture has been just wrong since wassssssssssssssssssup entered the lexicon. A severely UK-particular phenomenon.

      I blame the Venga Boys, Amy Winehouse and fckn Lewis Hamilton. But not in that order.

    Did anyone see the Leigh Sales interview with Angus Taylor on 7.30 tonight regarding Snowy Hydro 2.0? A train wreck?

  2. TailorTrashMEMBER

    Straya looks a better fit in Africa than Asia ….based on that commodities reliance chart

  3. SnappedUpSavvyMEMBER

    Dependence on commodity exports and external debt to China charts does not look good for a lot of Africa and South America

    Edit beat me to it ^^^

        No mate, have family between Deniliquin and Wakool. I’m a bit old for doing circle work and guzzling that much booze.

        • The Traveling Wilbur

          As usual Gunna your literary eloquence cuts to the heart of multiple matters in a way that the membership can understand at its heart.

          In this case you’ve managed to encapsulate in a single sentence the essence of why Macro Afternoon is so beloved by all.

    • Gunna – one of the stories on SBS’s Struggle Street is a dairying family from Denny (can’t spell it). I’ve heard of Mallee bulls but Denny Dairy Cows look equally as sleek. The filming was obviously done some time ago but they look to be doing it hard. Who’d be a cocky?

  4. So anyone see there is gonna be an inquiry into why the banks haven’t passed on the latest cuts in full? LMFAO what a kangaroo court that will be, oh noes you didn’t lower teh rates enough..

    But no kind of inquiry into why perhaps people are allowed to borrow 9x their wage or lowering of lending standards, creation of private debt out of thin air, screwing of retail depositors, the push for QE and other nonsense… Just not enough cutting rates.

    • Good find Gav.

      The delicious irony is that the Libs cannot go for the kind of stimulus that actually works, ie posting everyone a cheque and splurging on micro-infrastructure (ie school halls etc), because they rubbished Labor for a decade for doing it.

      On the upside, if they do tax cuts again instead, it will i) personally benefit me and you, and ii) not work.
