Actually the demise of the sizzle will be because stagnant wages have forced folk who run them to work extra weekend jobs instead - so the LNP are in fact directly to blame.
That makes as much sense...
Sausage sizzle in dangerCharities are being warned they will raise less money under labor's unexplained climate change plan.Northern Australia Minister Matt Canavan seized on silence from Opposition Leader Bill Shorten to warn even the Bunnings sausage sizzle, favoured by charities across the country, was at risk because of the cost of electricity and meat.
That's right, you heard it first on Murdoch's Courier Fail.Vote for the LNP because if you don't the end of the sausage sizzle will be Labor's Fault™ too.
....and oh, what a surprise that butt hurt Murdoch also just can't help but keep his champion Campbellend Newman in the news even though he was, is and always will be, a complete and utter dud!
I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be outraged about.

So that's what a newspaper looks like.
Quiet day for them then? "Sausage sizzle in danger" in a little sidebar story doesn't exactly rise to their usual level of fear & outrage baiting shat across the headline…
"The bbq sauce should be strong, with a dash of smokey flavour"
Hell no. Aussies will not stand for that chipotle shit.
Pickles are another bit of misinformation. They're certainly not a thing around here in Newcastle.
I left Australia 16 years ago. When did gherkins get renamed as pickles?
Fun fact, the ‘burger with the lot’ was one of the many foods Aussies created due to inferior fresh ingredients at the time.
Canned pineapple and beetroot were easy to add when beef was low quality for a flavour kick.
It’s the same reason why we have chocolate powder on our cappuccinos - our coffee used to be terrible so we masked it with a bit of sweetness.
Who puts the sauce on the lettuce?
why? don't they have them overseas?
All of those ingredients are placed, almost upside down.
Pretty generic burger I've had in a few countries...
Get rid of the beetroot, pineapple and pickles, inferior burger toppings that they are. Add a hash brown or scallop instead, and extra hot sauce plus chicken salt.
Pineapple & beetroot? Surely it's just one or the other?
Nothing wrong with a bit of goey.
This guy was a fuckwit
Well they need to try and trick someone into accidentally watching it I guess.
I'd take watching that over trash TV masquerading as news.
5/10 doesn't seem legit, should be lower.
such a bullshit biased program.
Probably the greatest threat to biodiversity after feral cats. Kill on sight.
Your supposed to kill these.
He wants your wallet.
It's a welcome change from having a crocodile follow you home from the pub though.
His asshole mate killed one of chickens couple of weeks ago. Didn’t even eat any of it, just slaughtered.
Kill it. It was imported purely for the sake of 'sport' and is a feral pest. If you can't kill it then incarcerate it somehow and call animal control.
Apparently there's actually a refuge for them in NSW but in Queensland it's illegal to even transport it to a vet to be euthanised.
Put a bullet in him.
Been seeing a huge amount of foxes around canberra lately, way more than usual.
OK immigrant here, so I understand this is an invasive species, so if I happened to encounter a fox (or cane toad, rabbit, etc.), what would be the best course of action?
Do you just let it be? Call animal control? Do you guys literally takes sticks and bash it like one poster suggested?
Obviously, after I take a picture and post it for reddit karma, I mean.
Fucken kill it. They're major pests.
Turn him into a rug!
Grab a stick and bash it's head in.
What did he say?
Swiper no swiping!
He wanted a friend!
Commie city hippy liberal here. I wouldn't kill it. I'd neuter it and/or adopt it.
SMH gone completely down the toilet
Is it wrong of me to think instead of the media pushing what political parties they favour they should just report on stories as much as they can?
But who am I kidding, this is the Murdoch media here and just simply reporting a story without picking favourites will never happen
While the Herald thus chooses Ms Berejiklian, the risk at this election is not which party wins but a minority government which puts voters at the mercy of minor parties such as the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers, which is largely a single issue party focused on guns. Before giving a protest vote to minor parties and independents voters should understand the risk of instability if neither party wins outright.
That's right - the real terror is a minority government with minor parties and independents. Fucking what? Devaluing the votes to minor parties and independents is just unaustralian. Fuck off with your 2 party only system.
What a surprise.
They support the Libs' Labour Expense Cap requiring government agencies - including emergency services - to reduce their salary costs year on year. The only way to do that is to remove staff, which doesn't exactly lead to improved public services. Meanwhile many agencies resort to using contractors for years at a time as their pay is budgeted separately to ongoing staff salaries, leading to less secure employment and further workforce casualisation. Brilliant.
FTA:in contrast to the ALP, which has not fully shaken off the legacy of corrupt former minister Eddie Obeid and has failed to produce competent new faces.
So mention Obeids corruption as a sticking point and gloss over the fact that since then there was about 11 Lib MPs resign for corruption and that includes a sitting premier
"Independent. Always" Bullshit!
Does it matter who owns our newspapers? Does it matter who controls the media? In far off days, which I am old enough to remember, Prime Minister Bob Menzies went into the federal parliament to prevent a British company buying four radio stations. He said it was wrong for people who do not belong to the country to own such a powerful instrument for propaganda.
At least it’s not dangerous to use in the toilet anymore. The ink they use isn’t lead anymore as far as I know. It’s the best use of all Murkdoc newspapers.
I spoke to some people representing the "NSW Nurses & Midwives Association" just yesterday and they are at least in NSW all for Labor.
The hand out literally says
Their 3 main issues were Ratios for public hospitals, Safer nursing in aged care and No Privatisation of NSW hospitals.
The ladies biggest concern as the ratio issue where there is no set standard so sometimes its 1 nurse to 10+ patients where as I believe she said in QLD and some other state there is mandates for 1:3 and 1:4 (could be wrong on the states but there was two of them that already have enforced ratios according to her).
God. Imagine another 4 years of the libs. Hopefully it’s a minority gov and they have to compromise to get legislation through. State elections should really be every 3 years.
Business owners influencing readers so that more profit can be made.
OR, independent journalism, private enterprise style. Yeah, Rright.
They're just selling advertisements, it's how newspapers make money. Would you complain if a newspaper sold advertising space to Labor?
Pretty sure this happened last election too, nothing to do with nine. Fairfax have always sold to Liberals when election comes along
As a commenter on their pages, their moderation policies have also changed in a rightward direction. Try saying anything accurately critical of Berejiklian at the moment, disappears into the ether.
Or, to suggest that de-clawing unions has had a role in wage stagnancy. Puff. Gone.
The coalition paid for an ad mate. The ALP have too.
Newspapers always lend support through editorial on election eve. They unanimously backed Rudd in 07.
SMH/Fairfax supported Abbott. Abbott. It’s business as usual for them.
I'm triggered and outraged
Really putting the Shake My Head in SMH
It would be a paid advertisement.
SMH is owned by Fairfax which is owned by Nine Entertainment Co.
The chairman of Nine is Peter Costello, former Liberal Treasurer.
I am *shocked* that the SMH is endorsing the Liberals. Aghast, even.
A huge mistake at the time, and it has only gotten worse since then. We need to build a wall to separate the civilized south from those northern hordes.
Opened unofficially by Francis De Groot, a member of the quasi-fascist paramilitary, the New Guard.
A sadly relevant fact.
Did the guy who designed the thing to have 6-8 lanes get any flack in 1932?
when was the crossing toll introduced?
What did they do before the bridge? I imagine it must have been a huge quality of life improvement for those that needed to cross the harbour often. hard to imagine life without it now .
I think we got the best design, some of the other potential designs were hideous, the 3 span one was pretty interesting though, not sure how it would have coped with the increased population that we have now though
The one we have was based on this one in New York, it's so weird to see it, it looks so similar but is in a completely different city somewhere
Been a long time since we’ve been this excited about infrastructure
If anyone is interested, I came across a thesis written in 1986, which covers some of this time in Victoria, some interesting names in there.
The White Army of 1931 : origins and legitimations : the League of National Security in Victoria in 1931, and the means by which it was legitimated
Sbs has Australia in color which has footage of this in ep2 with the protester cutting the ribbon watch it
Later in 1932 the proud mayor showed it to the English conductor Sir Thomas Beecham, who responded ‘I don’t like it, kindly have it removed...’
Something of that scale could not be arguably done now, at least not to the same scope or quality of the build.
Probably one of the most iconic bridges in Sydney.
So what happened here? Was the mural painted over with white paint, then painted with anti racism phrase, then painted over again?
Why are racists such sad fukken losers?
The mural may be gone, but the image lives on...
Sounds like the work of Andrew Nolch - one of the men who held Egg Boy down - who was also responsible for defacing Eurydice Dixon's memorial (or one of his ilk):
Calm down everyone, this is a part of street art culture. It's just a kid wanting to be the one that did it.
This brick wall has had more updates than all my social media accounts!
You can destroy the mural but the legend of eggboi lives on
So thin skinned and pathetic these rightwing snowflakes are, can't even cope with a mural reminding them that a kid with an egg made them all look like fools. No wonder they need their special little safe spaces like voat, they can't cope with even the smallest amount of backlash to their racist views.
What do the words say?
Maybe they should have done something like the Naeem Rashid one in Avondale instead of a meme.
At least we still have the image, right?
Could this be Eggboi protecting his upcoming TM? /s
That's so bad. We needed something like that. I hope others remake it somewhere else.
At least Kilroy was there
Weird how these Nazis are all free on week days to deface murals
Yeah but rejected 3 times by a school in viena who are so difficult to get into to this day. If he went anywhere else in the world to study he would have been accepted so does that even count. His paintings where fairly decent other than having no imagination that is. That's not to say I like him he was a nutcase who people where stupid enough to let run the country
i am following... keep us updated! this is like the time the up and coming tagger took on banksy
more proof that right wing people have no artistic talent.. if they did they would have actually painted something over it that looked good..
Got paedophile right but fucked up you're and quoted the middle of their own sentence. 11/10.
Personally, as an atheist, I don’t believe in hell.
