Does the Nine-Fairfax merger mean the writing is on the wall for Alan Jones? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"


With an ageing listener demographic, big brand unhappiness with 77 year-old wannabee politician Alan Belford Jones bitter, angry, bigoted, biased on-air persona, a string of defamation payouts by 2GB on his behalf and, his radio contract coming up for renewal in June 2019, has Alan Jones finally reached his use-by date?

The Australian, 12 November 2018:

Alan Jones has been sensationally disciplined by the board and management of Macquarie Media, which refuses to confirm or deny if it has forced its star breakfast presenter to pay some of the costs of the multi-million defamation action brought against the company by the Wagner brothers.

And the 2GB breakfast announcers infamous interview with Sydney Opera House boss Louise Herron was unbecoming and inappropriate, bosses say.

Diary is told the board is unhappy with the top-rating veteran broadcaster over three incidents: the Wagner defamation c...

Lowest vacancies since early 2014 "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

Rentals tighten

It's still early days, but the first indications that the dramatic clampdown on lending to investors is leading to tightening rental markets are surfacing.

Nationally the vacancy rate for residential properties fell to just 2 per cent in October, the lowest level in more than 4 years, according to SQM Research. 

Since many apartments were bought off the plan in Sydney and Melbourne many of the most impacted markets will initially include the smaller capital cities and regional centres. 

While Sydney's vacancies remained at 2.8 per cent or ~19,450 rentals in October, Hobart has crashed to just 0.3 per cent or 78 rentals, which is a full blown rental crisis playing out in real time.

Canberra isn't too far behind on that curve, declining from 2 per cent in 2014 to just 0.6 per cent, with vacancies declining again to 387 rental properties (remember many prominent commentators said that land tax 'in theory' would have no impact on the ACT rental market):


Interestingly, now many commentators are saying that the proposed negative gearing changes will have 'no impact' on rental markets too...but that's a whole other story.

BREAKING NEWS: Greens NSW MP Breaks Ranks, Calls For Buckingham To Stand Down From 2019 Election "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Greens NSW MP Jenny Leong has broken ranks with her party and issued a joint call with federal Senator Mehreen Faruqi calling for colleague Jeremy Buckingham to resign from parliament and not contest the upcoming March 2019 state election.

Ms Leong stood to make the speech in the NSW Legislative Assembly shortly after midday.

Our response to recent allegations about one of our own MPS has to date been completely unsatisfactory. It is for this reason that I am calling for Jeremy Buckingham to resign from his position as a member of parliament, and take himself off the ticket for the 2019 state election.

If he doesnt do this then I am urging the party to act so that he is no longer a representative or member of the Greens because we cannot advance our agenda for a more just, more sustainable and more equitable world when so much energy, effort time, resources and pain has been exhausted trying to manage one man and his unacceptable behaviour.

There is a need for decisive action to bring this to an end, which is why NSW Greens Senator Mehreen Faruqi and I have now issued a joint statement calling for Jeremy Buckingham to step aside and to not contest the next election.

It follows allegations in August that Mr Buckingham sexually assaulted Greens staffer Ella Buckland in 2011.

Ms Buckland alleged that a drunken Mr Buckingham grabbed her roughly on the vagina and kissed her neck outside his inner-west home in Sydney, following drinks at the NSW parliamentary bar.

Mr Buckingham continues to strongly deny the claims, and an internal Greens investigation found insufficient evidence to substantiate the allegations. That same investigation heard false allegations Ms Buckland was a promiscuous intravenous drug user.

It also follows last weeks resignation of Labor leader Luke Foley, over allegations he sexually assaulted ABC journalist Ashleigh Raper in December 2016, at a parliamentary Christmas Party.

Mr Foley resigned within hours of Ms Raper issuing a statement on the matter, mounting pressure on the Greens NSW to deal with the growing internal and external anger at how it handled the allegations around Mr Buckingham.

Cedric Patjole | Loop PNG | November 11, 2018

Speaking at the Companys Investor Conference, Executive General Manager, Craig Jetson, said the project has a wonderful ore body and is project of national significance to PNG.

Jetson said following the submission of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in June this year, the company are working with the PNG Government to finalize the necessary agreements to be required to enable them to approve the Special Mining Lease (SML).

One thing for sure is that Wafi-Golpu is project of national significance to PNG, so there is a lot of excitement in PNG about this project, and they see it as a big part of the economic development of the nation, said Jetson.

Yes: one year on "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

This week marks one year since Australians overwhelmingly voted Yes to the question of whether LGBTI Australians can marry the person they love.

Anna Brown, Co-Chair of the Equality Campaign and Director of Legal Advocacy with the Human Rights Law Centre said it was incredible seeing the majority of the nation back marriage equality and a fair go for all LGBTI Australians last year on November 15.

A year ago the nation celebrated with LGBTI Australians, their friends and families. Since then weve had a year where all Australians have had the same opportunities for love, commitment and to be treated equally.

Its been a wonderful year of cake and rainbow flags with LGBTI couples finally being able to say I do. Marriage equality has taken from no one and given absolute joy to LGBTI Australians, their families and friends, Anna Brown said.

Earlier this year, following leaks of the 20 recommendations from the Religious Freedom Review many Australians were outraged to learn that under current anti-discrimination laws, schools and other services run by religious bodies are legally able to discriminate against LGBTI children, clients and workers. The inquiry was called following the deeply flawed idea that marriage equality for LGBTIQ people would somehow pose a threat to religious freedom.

We reject this utterly, and remain concerned that conservative religious forces within the Coalition will be extracting their price for marriage equality. There should be no price paid for equality, Anna Brown said.

Australians voted for fairness and equality this time last year, not discrimination against LGBT people. Kids in schools should be worrying about classes and their homework, not living in fear of mistreatment because of who they are. Teachers should be able to do their job without having to hide who they are, Anna Brown said.

Michelle and Rhondas story

It was ironic that we were apart on the day that Australia voted that we could be together, legally. I was in Sydney and Rhonda was in Melbourne. Thanks to Facetime we were virtually together as we watched the results announcement for the Marriage Equality survey. After 6 months of never daring to dream that our love and relationship was going to be legally recognised, we were beautifully, joyfully and tearfully surprised at the result.

We said in our joint wedding speech (only 4 months later!) our two reasons to get married were firstly, because we adore one another and secondly, to salute and honour all of the campaigners who have given their lives, time, tears and energy for our right to be considered equal.

The Coathanger from Milsons Point Station All in the Name of Liberty


Milsons Point station is built into the northside approach to Sydney Harbour Bridge  The view is from the very end of the platform closest to it. I started a few months ago on warm days in winter. Then I got sick which delayed things for a bit, and when I recovered and had done a little more it then rained incessantly for weeks.

Now its getting close to summer I've been worried it would be too hot to get back, as there's no shade at all. Today it was reasonably cool so I went there toand got much closer to finishing, who knows, maybe finished. Perhaps I'll go back once more, perhaps not.Everyone there has been really cool, except one officious bloke at the start who worried I might worry the train drivers into thinking I might leap in front of them. None of the drivers or guards (who stop right next to me where I'm painting), have complained, some have been very appreciative. The attendant today came and looked a few times and said it made her day, which is mad
