We've Come a Long Way...































Back in June 2007, Noddy Newman was Lord Mayor of Brisbane.

At that time, Nick DiGirolamo was chief executive of the notorious AWH, and Paul Nicolaou was a Liberal Party fundraiser.

The meeting did take place, and since it has come to light, the money has been refunded.

It is fascinating to consider what was the subject of the meeting, and what small favour could be bought for $5000.

Obviously, not much has changed.

Except perhaps, in Jo Bjelke-Petersen's day, brown paper bags were used.

Excuse my sarcasm........

Hi 'numbers' I follow you when you are giving it to them on the CAT, that is where I found the link to your page during one of your stouches. Recently they posted an item about the passing of Gary Becker and thought you might be interested about this comment from the New Yorker that spells out the ideology over economics that libertarians pursue. I have occasionally posted on the blog but get bumped pretty smartly. Anyway more strength to your arm, the blog is only worth reading when you show up, Cheers. Jack O'Toole.
