A clear example of political prostitution - with Malcolm Turnbull acting as 'the john' and One Nation playing 'the tom' "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"


 The Courier Mail, 19 October 2017:

BARNABY Joyce has warned Malcolm Turnbull to stop gifting Pauline Hanson cash to make Government announcements.

The warning came during a face-to-face meeting sparked by ropeable Queensland Coalition backbenchers.

The frank discussion, held on Monday at 8am in the Prime Ministers office during a scheduled meeting, was in part dominated by the decision to give the One Nation leader $15 million for projects Coalition MPs wanted to announce themselves.

Mr Joyce, who has a good relationship with the PM, laid bare his fury after he was bombarded with complaints from the Queensland backbench.

It is also understood Mr Turnbulls office received complaints but the PM did not know intimate details of the deals with Senator Hanson.

THE ZOO 25 "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

 

Brisbanes most iconic venue The Zoo is turning 25. To mark this silver anniversary, over 25 of Brisbanes most celebrated musicians are coming together to perform including:

Adele Pickvance & Ian Haug / Ben Ely / ISIS

Marcello Milani & Tenzin Choegyal / Sabrina Lawrie

Sissybones / Tim Steward & Kellie Lloyd

(With more to be announced)

 

Original owners Joc Curran and C Smith opened the the doors in December 1992 and the venue quickly became one of the focal points for the explosion of music, art and creativity in Brisbane in the 90s. Since then, bands too numerous to mention from all over the world have performed there, and literally hundreds of people have worked at The Zoo, many young artists, managers and musicians, all doing time on the bar, at the door, as a glassy or duty manager. Creating this breeding ground of creativity and strength of community has been the great achievement of The Zoo and is continuing into a new generation, helmed by new owner Pixie Weyand.

All of the artists performing at this event have long histories with The Zoo and have become stalwarts of the Brisbane music scene.

This event is also supporting two very worthwhile charities:

 

Support Act www.supportact.org.au

Support Act is a charity which helps Australian artists and music workers who are facing hardship due to illness, mental health problems, injury or some other crisis. Since 1997, they have helped to pay rent, keep the power on, repair instruments, provide petrol, buy school uniforms and rehouse a prized vinyl collection.

Feed Music www.feedmusic.org

Feed Music is a not for profit website that enables touring artists and bands to use their location while on the road to pinpoint cafes and restaurants situated in their passing town, in which they can eat and drink at for free, promoting a better mental wellbeing.

Senator Canavans ambitious plan for a State of North Queensland "IndyWatch Feed Capricornia"

Senator Matt Canavan, a friend of mine from my Canberra days, is not wasting any time while he is temporarily out of the Cabinet. He is making plans for a new State of North Queensland. With his background as a Productivity Commission economist and as the former Minister for Northern Australia, Senator Canavan has the expertise and experience to come up with a credible and convincing plan for a new State of NQ. The Senator made some very interesting observations to the Townsville Bulletin last Friday:

Ive often said were big enough and strong enough and wealthy enough to represent ourselves, he said.

I reckon wed get more things going if we didnt have the handbrakes put on us by Brisbane and Canberra.

Senator Canavan said Tasmania had 12 senators with 500,000 people but North Queensland has only two and we have more than one million people.

I utterly reject any notion that we couldnt stand on our own two feet, he said. Our average per-person economic output in North Queensland is 30 per cent higher than in southern Queensland. All the money seems to get spent in Brisbane.

Senator Canavan is absolutely right about NQs higher economic output per capita (see chart below based on the most recent official estimates from Qld Treasury), although this is a result of the disproportionate contribution of mining to NQs economy. A lot of the income generated in NQ is earned by mining companies, and the bulk of it ends up leaving NQ, with a good proportion of it going overseas. The average NQ resident does not earn a higher income than the average SEQ resident. That said, the large economic contribution of mining (e.g. around two-thirds of North West Qlds economy, half of Mackays, and one-third of Fitzroys) means that a new State of NQ would earn healthy royalty revenues. Of course, as currently happens with Queensland, this healthy royalty revenue would count against NQ in the distribution of GST revenue.

While I concur with the Senator that a State of NQ would be economically viable, Id be careful about rushing into it. The set up costs would be large, and there may be trouble filling senior public service positions, given the vast majority of current Queensland public service SES positions are in Brisbane. Also, as Ive posted on previously, Im unsure NQ gets such a raw deal from Brisbane (see my post Is NQ under-funded relative to SEQ?). That said, I am v...

Exodus! "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

Census findings

Further interesting news from the 2016 Census has been released.

Some of it is rather open to interpretation. For example, there was lower employment in the younger age bracket, comprising 15-24 year olds.

But, on the other hand, 22 per cent of the population now have a degree or higher level of qualification. 

That's up +3.2 per cent from 2006-2011, replicating the same percentage increase as five years earlier, according to ID, the population experts.

Employment opportunities were certainly curtailed by the financial crisis and resources downturn, but we're also studying longer, so it's a somewhat mixed picture.

Exodus!

Similarly, there's quite a bit been said on the apparent mass exodus from Sydney.

Again, there's a strong element truth to this story.

But it's equally important not to take away the wrong visual image from this. 

The fact is, New South Wales always loses people interstate, and it always will, largely to Brisbane, south east Queensland, and even to Melbourne.

In reality, though, the numbers leaving the state on a net basis were dramatically lower in the 2011-2016 Census period than they were in the preceding five years.

And they were much, much lower than they were in the five years before that, with net interstate migration tracking at way under the half the rate of seen from 2001 to 2006.

China buys QLDs The Real Pet Food Company for $1bn "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

A Chinese-led consortium has struck a billion-dollar deal to buy a Queensland-based pet food giant to exploit the growth of pet humanisation in the United States and ultimately China.

The majority owner of The Real Pet Food Company (TRPC), Quadrant Private Equity, has sold its interests to the Beijing-based Hosen Capital, Chinas largest agribusiness company New Hope Group and the Singapore Governments investment vehicle, Temasek.

Quadrant Private Equity bought into The Real Pet Food Company in 2015, along with the founding Quinn family and its management.

The proposed billion-dollar sale is a major coup for Quadrant and the Quinn Family.

The company is known for its pet food brands such as Natures Gift, Natures Goodness, Farmers Market and Ivory Coat.

The deal which needs approval from Australias Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) is targeting the growth of pet humanisation in the United States, Europe and eventually Chinas modernising economy where pets are becoming part of the family.

Nick Dowling, Australian chief executive of New Hope Group said the acquisition was a logical step for the consortium.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take a really successful Australian company global to follow the theme of global pet humanisation, Mr Dowling said.

Its the move of pets out of the backyard, through the kitchen and into the bedroom.

For us, this is something we think we can collectively deliver to the world.

Vitamins, milk, baby formula, now dog food

With the US and Europe key initial markets, Mr Dowling sees changing social and economic times in China as a major potential focus.

In China, the powerful force is the change in family structures, an increase in urban lifestyles and rising incomes. What thats leading to is very important forces particularly with millennials and with empty nesters, Mr Dowling said.

The consortium is hoping to cash in with Chinas new wealth in a similar vein as vitamin supplement supplier Blackmores, dairy producer A2 Milk and baby food maker Bellamys.

The deal has been referred to the FIRB and Treasurer Scott Morrison will have the final say on whether the acquisition is in the national interest.

We certainly have made our representations but we think this is a great news story for a really fantastic Australian company, Mr Dowling said.

Australian household electricity prices may be 25% higher than official reports "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

Australian household electricity prices may be 25% higher than official reports

Bruce Mountain, Victoria University

The International Energy Agency (IEA) may be underestimating Australian household energy bills by 25% because of a lack of accurate data from the federal government.

The Paris-based IEA produces official quarterly energy statistics for the 30 member nations of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), on which policymakers and researchers rely heavily. But to provide this service, the IEA relies on member countries to provide it with good-quality data.

Last month, the agency published its annual summary report, Key World Statistics, which reported that Australian households have the 11th most expensive electricity prices in the OECD.


Read more: FactCheck: Are Australians paying twice as much for electricity as Americans?


But other studies notably the Thwaites report into Victorian energy prices have reported that households are typically paying significantly more than the official estimates. In fact, if South Australia were a country it would have the highest energy prices in the OECD, and typical households in New South Wales, Queensland or Victoria would be in the top five.

Cloud Nothings "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

DRW Entertainment welcomes kings of cathartic and anthemic alt-punk, Cloud Nothings, back to Australia this coming February.

Fresh from a huge European and US tour with heavyweight rock-revival favourites, Japandroids, in-demand Cloud Nothings are returning for the first time since 2014, bringing their heavily-praised fourth studio album, Life Without Sound to Australian shores.

Indie-rock tunes and a punk as fuck performance, Cloud Nothings tore the Oxford Art Factory apart (2014) Blunt Mag

From its beginnings in Dylan Baldis basement in 2009 to include the trio of drummer Jayson Gerycz and bassist TJ Duke, Cloud Nothings are a band that continue to challenge the genre, while remaining nostalgic and loyal to their loud and brash basement roots.

Cloud Nothings pair fuzzy power-chord riffs with pop hooks on Rollingstone

In the bands most bold and unprecedented phase, a second guitarist, Chris Brown, has bulked up the bands lo-fi sound resulting in a remarkable expansion in the Cloud Nothings story and production.

The band seems to be hitting their stride ever more intently (each record could perhaps be assessed as the band hitting their stride, which speaks to the groups impressive consistency) Pitchfork 

If their new album recorded with producer John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Blonde Redhead) has delved into a more cohesive chapter in the bands journey, their live shows still inspire some of the most fanatic praise of the bands raw and driving energy.

Recent international shows have undoubtedly confirmed Cloud Nothings as one of the most invigorating, magnetic, and yet enigmatic live bands, as fans get the sense that the bands metamorphosis is coming to its most important and career-defining stage.

Cloud Nothings have mastered the art of thrashing catharsis, pummeling out the anxieties of nostalgia and expectation with bloody verve. Pitchfork
