  1. We have gangs of foreign criminals rioting in the streets attacking police, and this is all the UPP have to offer? The UPP senators need to do their jobs and start holding this useless ALP government to account. If they are too busy, they should resign.

    • MR. BYAM have you ever heard of the principle of the RULE OF LAW. The government in nearly everything it does is contrary to that principle. What the principle implies is that the government like you and me must obey the law and that includes the rules of Parliamentary procedure. The Opposition should have been doing that a long time ago.The current Opposition is really soft compared to the ALP renegades when they were in Opposition.

      • “What is the point of the UPP?”

        Gangs of foreign criminals rioting in the streets trumps esoteric principles every time. Nobody cares about “tree” day notice. Foreign criminals are attacking the police with impunity. What is the UPP going to do about it? This is the only thing we want to hear from Mr. Lovell. Nobody is voting UPP over no “tree” day notice.

  2. Isn’t the host Mrs. Spencer-Sayers??

    Put some respect on the lady’s name please. Yes it’s still a man’s world, but women live in it!!!

  3. Seriously. If they can’t even get her name right it calls in question, what other areas of the story might be incorrect.
