New MP Zali Steggall is a global-warming crusader, yet drives an SUV and hasn’t bothered to put solar panels on her roof.

But now that the independent has beaten Liberal Tony Abbott in his beachside Sydney seat of Warringah, she’s being begged to set a powerful example.

A change.org petition urges her to erect wind turbines along Warringah’s beaches, given that locals are apparently so hot on global warming that the GetUp!-backed Steggall won 57 per cent of their vote, after preferences.

“Zali Steggall and the people of Warringah need to show leadership on immediate climate change ACTION,” the petition says.

“The proposal: wind turbines are to be placed along the foreshore, taking advantage of the sea breezes. Let’s lead the way by example, for everyone who voted against climate action …

“Let’s do it for the children!”

What a brilliant opportunity for Steggall and her supporters! As one petition signer said, an ounce of example is worth a ton of advice.

No wonder hundreds of Australians rushed to support the petition within hours of it being posted, although — heavens! — their comments suggest that they suspect Steggall’s supporters are all cant and no climate action.

‘This Isn’t The Britain We Fought For,’ Say Britons of World War II Era Daily Mail (Britain) http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1229643/This-isnt-Britain-fought-say-unknown-warriors-WWII.html .. .. Nearly 400,000 Britons died. Millions more were scarred by the experience, physically and mentally. But was it worth it? Her answer – and the answer of many of her contemporaries, now in their 80s and 90s – is a resounding No. They despise what has become of the Britain they once fought to save. It’s not our country any more, they say, in sorrow and anger … They feel, in a word that leaps out time and time again, ‘betrayed’… Read more »

Is there anything sadder, (with the possible exception of gender quotas), than picking a leader “because it’s his turn”?

What a waste of a vote. With the LNP winning a majority, Warringah has just lost all or any power to achieve anything. With ScoMo in they could have had a seat at the table with Tony or at least as an adviser.

Nobody will listen to Zali as there is no political benefit or power. I’m assuming she is a one term wonder…..meanwhile her law career takes a hit.

Pity, I really respected her when she was a skier.

I think that the LNP should bring up Nuclear Power, even if it does not get passed have a long discussion on it. I would be a Life of Brian moment hearing Albo say “newqueer” power as he says it. Like “Free Wodger the Wobber” or Wodney the Wapist”

So Franny, considers I am a prig for hauling filthy mouthed ‘trolls’ up for denigrating women? So the two highly praised moderators of this site, who sang loud and long about their ‘new toy’ and the standards they expected, are condoning the likes of Missionchris for scurrilous attacks on Blance d’Alpuget and the filth that he has leveled at myself and using my father, my wife as a crutch to delve in his ‘forte’ filth. I tell you this, I worked in the building industry for fifty years an industry that see some tough individuals, but this site has seldom… Read more »

We should all be very pleased that we got the election done and dusted with the right result before the stunt that about to be pulled in the US plays out.
The loony left are going to attempt yet another coup.
Their sinister plot failed before and after the 2016 election but what they are attempting to do this time in desperation to protect themselves form what is coming will cause outrage and probably riots ( which will be short lived )
They will fail and this will bring down the house.
Trump wins again, the WORLD wins.

I wonder when Scumo is going to do the right and step in and protect an Australian being improperly persecuted by the US? Since when does American laws apply to non US citizens operating in international jurisdictions? How about America clean up the crooked Clinton’s et. al. for committing actual crimes, before it tries to improperly silence an Australian journalist for reporting those misdeeds.

Completely off topic, sorry. Just spotted a headline on my home page, “Black mamba kills judge in Zambia” . . . I thought it was the title of a Dr Seuss book.

THE BIRDS AND THE BEES. This is in fact so very serious .. homosexuals and lesbians who selfishly have children .. how do they counsel their children when they reach puberty? They have already failed as role models .. how do they give a proper, wholesome, biologically accurate picture of the very sensitive, personal subject of human sexuality to their probably already confused children? This is never talked about by a society heavily brainwashed by aggressive homosexuals and lesbians. In fact, most dare not think about the fallout from unnatural sex for fear of being labelled with a shonky, meaningless… Read more »

Switched over to the Gaybc this morning and there was the worst commentator on Australian television Trioli who I can’t stand , having a go at the conservative media in a not so subtle way on a story about Albanese and Brexit , this woman is a moron and when the government cut back on finances for the national broadcaster the first to go should be this bitch.

BREAKING NEWS:

Nancy Pelosi and Democrats Block Bill to Stop Infanticide For 50th Time, Refuse Care for Babies Born Alive

The crazy baby murdering lefties are very much the same here in Australia.
It’s a terrible worldwide industry under many fake names including one that is totally ridiculous….’reproductive health’ when it’s more like an butcher shop, body parts for sale.

Yeah sure…healthy baby murder.

BILLY B.

Billy B, there must be a part of you that has commonsense .. I ask this part of you this question :

Is it better to have a representative in parliament who can do nothing (such as Zali), or one who is very experienced and capable of achieving a lot ?

Keeping Abbott hatred to one side, what does the part of you that has commonsense say in response to this question?

The good news is David Speers is taking over from Barrie Cassidy as host of Insiders. The bad news is Fox will lose one of the few decent journalists it can claim.
