Journalist and Commentator Corrine Barraclough says alcohol and cars “should never go together”.

The Sunday Telegraph reported that the NSW state government is pushing for a 0.02 blood alcohol limit for drivers. Research suggests that if this action were taken, alcohol related deaths could be reduced by 100 people each year.

Ms Barraclough said it was “absolutely bizarre that anybody could think it makes sense to have any alcohol in your system when your operating machinery”. According to Broadcaster and Commentator Jim Ball “many of the European brands have great non-alcoholic beers” for those who need to be behind the wheel. Image: News Corp Australia

Anti-Australia Greens attempt to 'infiltrate our institutions with a socialist agenda' | Sky News AustraliaAs the Greens call to change the date of Australia Day, former Speaker and Liberal MP Bronwyn Bishop says it's ' necessary that we do celebrate what Cook did”.\n\nGreens leader Adam Bandt said the public should not commemorate the day Captain Cook set foot on Australian shore because it demonstrates a lack of “honesty about the dark sides of Australia’s history”.\n\nHowever, according to Ms Bishop Captain Cook’s “journey and ability were outstanding by whatever measure you use”. \n\nThe Green agenda reveals an “infiltration of our institutions by socialism which wants to destroy the country as we know it,' she said. \n\nImage: Getty 🙄 'The Greens' righto. Australia day has nothing to do with Cook, it is all about the first fleets arrival. Both Morrison and McKenzie went on about Cook last Jan 26. What is it with conservatives? Didn't they pay attention at school?

Demise of Holden sad 'but inevitable' | Sky News Australia2GB broadcaster Luke Grant said there used to be a “sense that if you buy a Holden you’re doing the right thing by Australia” but that “went awry as soon as they stopped making the Holden commodore”. \n\nHundreds of people are set to lose their jobs by the year's end as General Motors axes Holden after 72 years of operation in Australia.\n\nMr Grant said in general Australian consumers don’t tend to buy domestic products in order to save a business.\n\nAccording to Sky News Host Peta Credlin “Not many people confess that right now they drive a Holden car and that’s part of the problem.” \n\n“The rubber hit the road in 2013-14 when Holden and other domestic producers at that stage were basically blackmailing the Coalition,” to put billions of dollars of taxpayers money into their private businesses.\n\n “Your not making cars for fun, your making them for profit” and companies can make more profit in countries like China where workers can be paid a lower wage, according to Mr Grant. \n Rubbish! They made the commodore horrible and didn’t listen to what buyers want! They were loose with the truth. We are moving manufacturing offshore. Which really meant “our cars will never be the same again”.
