One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has accepted the resignation of the party's Queensland leader and Senate candidate Steve Dickson after he was caught on camera groping strippers and making derogatory comments about women. Dickson resigned from the party on Tuesday after more footage from an Al Jazeera sting was made public, following on from video released last month which showed him meeting with officials from the U.S. National Rifle Association. 'White women **** a whole lot better, they know what they are doing, Asian chicks don't,' Mr Dickson was recorded saying in the footage aired on Monday.

Senator Hanson said she was 'shocked and disappointed' after seeing the footage - … [Read more...] about ‘I’m upset by this, Steve is a family man’: Pauline Hanson accepts resignation of One Nation’s Senate candidate after he is caught groping dancers in strip club scandal

I was in Venice when the acqua alta struck on 28 October 2018. I noted in my diary: “It happened today. The first big acqua alta of the year, with a siren at 09.17, followed by two steady tones. One tone is for 1.1 metres, two 1.2 metres, three 1.3 metres and four 1.4 metres or more. The tidal chart says the level should peak just after noon. At 12.30 I put on my green rubber boots. Stepping out along the canals, I found the water above my ankles and immediately had to re-learn how to walk. Walking at normal speed causes the water to splash over your boots and on to your legs. I slowed down, finding I also needed to watch out for little waves from the boats on the canal, which rode up right over the submerged pavement. “Tourists used bin bags or fluorescent pink plastic booties over their shoes, walked barefoot or just got their shoes wet.

“Getting Brexit Done” runs through the Conservatives’ election campaign like the writing through a stick of rock. From there, all else follows to “unleash the potential” of the UK, Boris Johnson has argued. But maybe the Prime Minister’s second most pressing priority – when he’s pulled us out of the EU on Jan 31, that is –should be creating a new generation of capitalists. While the Tories are far enough ahead in the polls to make a Johnson majority look assured against a Labour Party determined to wreak havoc on the economy in two days’ time, addressing housing could be key to the Conservatives’ longer-term success. The PM has said he wants to build 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s, but... … [Read more...] about After Brexit, Boris Johnson needs to create a new generation of capitalists
