Adelaide butcher refuses to remove 'non halal' sign after it was found to be offensive (200)

An advertising regulation body found that the sign implied Islamic dietary practices were 'not Australian'.

A South Australian butchery has refused to take down a controversial window sticker which read 'non halal certified' after the advertising regulatory body found it to be offensive and said it 'incited hatred' towards Muslims last month.

Hey can you spot the difference between 'non' and 'not'?

I’m fine with it, well done to the butchers, just stating a fact for shoppers !

It’s offensive that halal is permitted in this country...

Good. If they can put the halal sign why can’t you do the opposite?

But I want only non halal food because I don't agree with halal slaughter or with halal certification. I have a right to know if my food is non halal.

Water storage capacity risks falling behind population growth | Sky News Australia (48)

The states are being urged to build dams as new analysis shows water storage capacity is at risk of falling behind population growth. \n\nThe data suggests at current rates water storage per person in NSW, Queensland, and Victoria will fall by 30 per cent within a decade. \n\nFederal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud called on the states to take action. \n\n'The states have been responsible for urban water since Federation and should be taking the lead,' he said. \n\n'They're just not keeping up with their growing populations.\n\n'This is not just about agriculture, it's about water security and food prices in our towns and capital cities.' \n\nImage: Getty

The states are being urged to build dams as new analysis shows water storage capacity is at risk of falling behind population growth.

Great idea. Dealing with climate outcomes the sensible way.

Not just at risk of falling behind population growth, it is already miles behind population growth. Australia gets plenty of rain but we are very poor at catching & storing it. This should be the main focus, not arguing the toss about climate change or whatever they call it.

We can grow more cotton too 😁

I worked for the State Rivers in Victoria 30 years ago and we tried to tell everyone then....message never got through

Dont worry the chinese are going to eventually invade Australia. Let the greenies nogiate with them!

Leaving a dog in the car could end in jail time and huge fines (43)

Queenslanders who leave a dog in a hot car will face jail time and tens of thousands of dollars in fines under changes to the law.

Queenslanders who leave their dog in the car — even just for a minute — could face jail time and fines up to $266,000 under proposed new laws. Should other states follow suit?

The fines are OTT but all states need to have legislation re kids and animals.

Queensland where you get heavier fines and penalties for leaving a dog in the car than if you leave your kids in the car! Lmao. “Beautiful one day, in jail the next”. Auspol

Yes - should be Australia-wide! 👏👏👏 and not just Have a law - but Enforce it! ❌Never Leave Dogs In Cars!❌

How about enforcing the current law regarding carrying a dog on the back of a ute? The police already turn a blind eye to that one!

Love dogs but this is not the way to do it.

NSW politics LIVE: Gladys Berejiklian to remain Premier as Liberal MPs call off leadership spill (29)

Three rebel Liberal MPs say they will move a spill motion against Premier Gladys Berejiklian in Tuesday's party room over her 'shameful' handling of the abortion bill.

Breaking: The nswpol leadership spill has been called off

Every week politicians appear to seek new low. Potential corruption last week, leadership spill this week. Labor n Liberals at State and Federal level are embarrassing.

So they pulled out then? Good option.

'Aborted'? 'Failed'? Are those clowns resigning for damage to their party? Libs don't allow conscience votes do they? LiberalAus

We, the people, decide the leader you egotistical fools. Back off or deal with the wrath of the voters. I’m over the crap.

Time for a reshuffle within your ranks, Gladys !

Sky News host Andrew Bolt says outspoken climate change activist Tim Flannery is “the perfect symbol of the death of reason” and “the rise of the professional fear-monger”. \n\nMr Bolt noted that Mr Flannery is a mammal expert, not a climate scientist, that is “preaching” on global warming. \n\nThe broadcaster criticised Mr Flannery’s article for The Conversation in which he wrote, 'my children, and those of many prominent polluters and climate denialists, will probably live to be part of that grim winnowing – a world that the Alan Joneses and Andrew Bolts of the world have laboured so hard to create”. \n\nMr Bolt claimed Mr Flannery has misquoted experts, made wild predictions that don't come true, urged the waste billions of dollars and scared children with claims that billions of people will be wiped out.\n\nImage: AP\n

Berejiklian’s ‘survival’ will hinge on cleaning up ‘massive error of process’ | Sky News Australia (24)

NSW One Nation Leader Mark Latham says if Gladys Berejiklian wants to survive at the helm of the state government, she’ll need to acknowledge the “massive error of process” surrounding the abortion decriminalisation bill and “pledge to never do it again”.\n\n“These things only get through the parliament if the government, and the government alone, sets aside speaking time,” Mr Latham told Sky News on Tuesday.\n\n“The government is complicit in the way in which this has been handled; if fact, they’re the only ones who’ve ultimately been responsible for rushing it, ' he said. \n\nMr Latham’s remarks come after three rebellious state Liberal MPs announced on Monday night they would move a spill motion against their premier over the handling of the abortion legislation, but they promptly called their coup, scheduled to take place Tuesday morning, off.\n\nHe said the premier needs to clean up her act in terms of “decent” parliamentary process.\n\n“The truth of the bill is once you take abortion out of the crimes act and put it into the health act, you’ve got to codify it, under the law of NSW, all these complex, detailed practices.”\n\n“You can’t do that in the space of a fortnight.\n\n“The people behind this were really putting up something that was from another planet — it was never going to fly.”\n\nImage: News Corp Australia

Mark Latham says if Gladys Berejiklian wants to survive at the helm of the state government, she’ll need to acknowledge the “massive error of process” surrounding the abortion decriminalisation bill and “pledge to never do it again”.

LyleShelton How is a conscience vote a massive error of process? Does Mark Latham not have a conscience?

If nothing else Latham is a survivor. He's been rejected, but manages to have more come backs than Johnny Farnham, but at least Farnham was welcomed back.

Good on you Mark. Can’t understand why a woman gets pregnant then decides to commit murder of the most precious thing she will ever have...her child.

How the hell can the NSW parliamentarians possibly think that killing babies can ever be considered ok? The price you will pay for this will be life long and possibly beyond! This is incomprehensible and completely wrong!
