    Does anyone (besides Shrillery), actually know the full contents of TPP?

    Thank you Brock! You are nice and relatively easy to understand here, I appreciate that.

    • Broc West says:

      haha thanks rockshot! I am fully aware that my accent, stumbling over words & the speed at which I speak can make it a little difficult to understand sometimes but I can only try my best.

    Thanks for the update Brock – in true media starved OZ its quite refreshing…

    I would like to chime in with a view that our peculiar Immigration Minister Peter Dutton is fast becoming the most nasty piece of work seen in decades…in fact he out darkening Abbott and Howard in many respects with his complete disregard for fundamental human rights and is so taking advantage of the rule of parliamentary supremacy, High Court Judges are left twitching in their highchairs.

    Julian Burnside QC has warned about this, countless great old school US Presidents (Roosevelts) have warned about it, when corporate grabs the government by the proverbials we are all proverbialed !!

    I am equally disturbed by the constant assault on citizens without reason or charge and slightly concerned that the national broadcaster that was once our champion on such issues, although still providing quality reporting, is perhaps not conveying the necessary detail or the sense of urgency that a nation transforming from democracy to dictatorship properly deserves.

    This is the latest but Australians are probably noticing the attack on marginalised citizens has now become a daily news occurrence, so at least we can thank the ABC for reporting at least the basics.

    Great work Broc , James

    Just wanted to say that it was a real pleasure to hear from Broc again. I’ve always enjoyed his commentary. Its hard to find liberty oriented news from the Aussie perspective here in the sunny climes of Southern Arizona.
