Peter Dutton is, to use his own words, more or less, a mad fucking wanker.

When I read your report that  the Baird government had sold the Education Department building and the Lands Department building for $35 million, I checked the date, thinking that it must have been April 1 ("Baird's $3b sell-off", January 2-3). Each of those buildings occupies a complete block in  one of the most prestigious parts of the CBD.  Were competitive bids sought before this unbelievable price from a Singaporean hotel developer was accepted? 

On this scale of values the government no doubt will consider selling the Opera House for $1 million and the Sydney Harbour Bridge for, oh say, $50,000.

Rupert Murdoch is the major mass publisher of climate change denialism. ALL his journals, newspapers and TV outlets sing to the same tune: "Global warming is CRAP". Even when his learned journalists publish some purportedly "balanced" articles on the subject, it is designed to sow doubt in the mind of fair minded people. In his heart he hates anything that smells of anti-coal, anti-oil and anti-gas. He wants to burn the place down with more CO2 emissions. So how can he and HALL got into a relationship?

Here is some of what Jerry Hall wrote in the daily Mail in 2009:

From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the oil industry.

The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.

The most dramatic example of this is recommendation 60 – which singles out the CFMEU for its “culture of disregard for the law” and suggests parliament consider legislation banning individual CFMEU officials.

Here we are at the end of 2015, and apparently there has never been a more exciting time to be an Australian.
