The $500-a-day service charge to kill solar

Queensland businesses are being hit with service charges of more than $500 a day on their electricity bills, in a move the solar industry says is designed to kill the roll-out of commercial-scale rooftop solar across the state.  more ...

Culture & Life – MH17, “fundamental British values” and fascism

The evidence that Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by an aircraft, presumed to be Ukrainian, rather than brought down by a Russian missile as claimed by the Kiev junta has been allowed to quietly slip away into silence and obscurity. Even Tony Abbott seems to have stopped strutting the world stage demanding that Russia be brought to book for it.  more ...
