Friday, September 29, 2006: Frost-afflicted fruit farmers will share in a $5M government payout (The Age, 29/9/2006), rewarding them for not taking out crop insurance. Does this mean all Victorians can look forward to Bracks underwriting their

Thursday, September 28, 2006: The Age opines that frost-affected stone-fruit farmers took "the sensible, and expensive, precaution of watering the ground" (The Age, 28/9/2006). What about that other sensible precaution - buying crop insurance. Too expens

Tuesday, August 15, 2006: I object to The Age headline "Bracks ministers sold to business leaders for $7500 a head" (The Age, 15/8/2006). This is misleading and unfair - those ministers were rented out at a competitive daily rate, in a transparent commer

Tuesday, May 16, 2006: They're not paying $3 per banana in the Phillipines. The Government ban is propping up a few hundred voters in Queensland at the expense of the developing world - and our breakfasts! Let the free market work.

Tuesday, April 11, 2006: When scotching free public transport, Bracks pointed out that we'd all vote for free beer too. No doubt Doyle's already talking with the brewers about that - plus new "tolerances" for drink-driving.

Thursday, March 30, 2006: There is no inconsistency between the Liberals' policies for the mid-80's Australia Card and the present smartcard (The Age, 30/3/05). The original Australia Card concept would have caught all transactions, including those relati
