I don't mind this prime minister. He's a lot nicer than Shuz.

Bill Shorten doesn't deserve to be Prime Minister. He's a horrible person who did a "Barnaby" and got away with it.

If the parklands are so important why dont they put it to a vote state wide? Or are they afraid the majority will back this hotel..

Federal Labor will seek to extend for another 5 years the stay of Adelaide Zoo's pandas, who are due to return to China this year. The man waiting to be taking out with the trash, ScumMo, thought it was clever to slam the opposition for making the proposal while Queensland recovers from floods even though he is in Tasmania and, more importantly, government is not and should not be a zero sum game. It's able chew gum and walk at the same time.

Why would a FEDERAL government of any persuasion be involved with what exhibits any cities Zoo has on offer? Morrisons response may as usual be OTT but he has a point.

Because it's panda diplomacy. They are a gift/loan of the Chinese government and were negotiated to be brought here by the Howard Government to symbolise the relationship. The only reason they ended up in Adelaide is because Alexander Downer was foreign minister at the time the deal was struck.
