    Doesn't your side of politics ever get sick of whinging?

    Honestly, it's relentless.

      Ah, the old "my side of politics never complains" argument.

      We just need something to do while we're waiting for websites to load...

    "Mate - just fix your second-rate NBN."

    Good point and very concise and efficient.

    If only Labor's own NBN was as such.

      *NBN rollout.

    Fully agree with Michelle Rowland - however as a fun fact, the new date for the Triple J hottest 100 coincides with International Holocaust Awareness Day, so if they were trying to offend less people, I guess they failed miserably.

      Except if anyone read the actual announcement by the ABC, its been moved to the 4th weekend in Jan - its not tied to any specific date.

      changing the date from the arrival of the first fleet is removing the connotation that Australia day is celebrating European settlement - a process that was marred by the genocide of the native people.

      No one could ever be mistaken into thinking that Australia day is celebrating anything that has even the remotest relation to the holocaust - its just an unfortunate coincidence (once every 6 years)

    Never foget this is the c**t who stole 30 million off the ABC and gave it to Murdoch. When asked why he laughed in our faces and said he didn't have to explain himself. Remember these anti democracy, self serving grubs are what we are up aginst.
