Abbott slaps down colleagues on TV

Ministers and backbenchers have accused Ms Credlin of ruling the government with an iron fist and questioned key strategic decisions.

Long-running tensions again spilled into the public arena this week when Fairfax Media revealed Mr Abbott’s office blocked Foreign Minister Julie Bishop from attending climate talks in Lima. She only obtained permission to go after after taking the matter to cabinet.

During an interview with ABC News Breakfast on Friday, Mr Abbott strongly backed his chief of staff and said her attackers wouldn’t be so vocal if Ms Credlin was a man.

“Do you really think my chief of staff would be under this kind of criticism if her name was Peter as opposed to Peta?” Mr Abbott asked the ABC’s Lyndal Curtis.

“I think people need to take a long hard look at themselves with some of these criticisms.

“If people have a problem with my office obviously they can tell me because what my office does is what I ask my office to do.”

One Liberal parliamentarian contacted by Fairfax Media said MPs would not take kindly to having been effectively labelled “sexists and misogynists”.

“This has all the hallmarks of Julia Gillard’s paranoia,” the source said.

Ms Credlin is married to the Liberal Party’s federal director Brian Loughnane.This has also been a long-running point of contention within the Liberal Party because MPs feel if they have internal concerns about Mr Abbott’s office or the federal secretariat, they are unable to raise the issue because of Mr Loughnane’s and Ms Credlin’s grip on both.

Discontent with Ms Credlin has fuelled speculation within the Liberal Party that she could leave Mr Abbott’s office ahead of the 2016 election to take up a seat in the House of Representatives or Senate.

It has been suggested she could either take stood-aside Assistant Treasurer Arthur Sinodinos’ NSW Senate seat or Social Services Minister Kevin Andrews’ safe Melbourne seat of Menzies.

Mr Abbott is likely to come under fire for raising Ms Credlin’s gender as a defence given he has previously attacked former prime minister Julia Gillard for doing the same.

“As the father of three daughters I want them to be judged on what they do. I do not want them to be judged favourably or unfavourably on the basis of their gender and I think it’s time that everyone in the Parliament moved on from this gender card which so many members of the government have been playing,”Mr Abbott said in October 2012.

Two months later, in a speech to the Food and Grocery Council, Mr Abbott said: “Alas, we have a government which plays the class war card when it gets in to trouble and when it doesn’t play the class warcard, tends to play thegender cardto try to deflect what is legitimate criticism.”

Western Sydney Wanderers never wavered and will push Cruz Azul all the way: Tony Popovic

Confident in team: Wanderers coach Tony Popovic.

Confident in team: Wanderers coach Tony Popovic.

Western Sydney Wanderers coach Tony Popovic has hailed the professionalism of his players in maintaining their focus on the Club World Cup despite the pay dispute that nearly saw them pull out of the tournament.

The players were on the brink of sitting out their quarter-final with Cruz Azul this Saturday night until a compromise was struck that brought the players an increased – albeit unspecified – share of the prizemoney for competing in the tournament.

They were originally unhappy with being offered only 10 per cent of the $1.2 million prizemoney on offer if they lost to the Mexicans but after considerable negotiation the club said on Thursday a solution had been reached.

Popovic said the players’ commitment to being fully prepared, even when they were considering strike action, never wavered.

“It’s unfortunate that there has been an issue in [the] public domain but I am not surprised to see how well they have looked after their bodies and have conducted themselves to prepare for a fantastic game, of which we are a part,” he said. “As a coach I have seen nothing to worry me. I haven’t seen any distractions. I have seen nothing different. I have seen a team that has prepared and trained very well.”

The side remained unified in their approach and had prepared as well as he could have hoped from the moment they left Sydney last Sunday, he said.

“We see on paper that something has been resolved but for the last two days at training I have seen a group determined to do very well here,” Popovic said. “There’s a real unity among the staff and players. That is normal for me. I haven’t seen a change and I don’t envisage a change because I have been very happy with how they have looked since we arrived.

“Our training sessions have been good – Tuesday and Wednesday were excellent. It’s probably one of the best sessions we’ve had in the while.”

While the Wanderers’ fans may be busy contemplating what lies ahead should they defeat the CONCACAF champions, Popovic says it’s “incorrect” to look that far ahead.

“That would disrespectful to Cruz Azul. The last time I looked I saw 19 major trophies that they have won. That’s a hell of a history,” he said. “They, as well as us, want to play Real Madrid in the semi-final – and that’s got to be our focus. It’s a dream and a vision to be one game away from playing Real Madrid but our opponent looks at it the same way and our whole focus has been on this match on Saturday.

“There’s a big job ahead and this will be very tough game. We will have to be really good to get through – and then hopefully we can talk about the dream game.”

The Wanderers’ mastermind has been running the rule over Cruz Azul relentlessly since the draw for the tournament was revealed and he believes the squad’s deep experience may be the biggest asset of La Maquina.

“We’ve watched several of their games and they’re a very good team. Like us, they’ve struggled a bit in the league, but we know that they’re preparing well,” he said. “They went to Spain [for a training camp] and played a few friendly games so they’re taking this competition as you’d expect.

“They have some very good players in attack and a lot of experience. In terms of age, their squad has an average age of 28 or 29, with a lot of experience in big games. We don’t have that, but we have a lot of confidence from winning a major competition only recently.”

Popovic said the biggest hurdle for his men was to be psychologically fresh, having repeatedly forced themselves to rise for big matches in the past few months.

“In pre-season, to play a quarter-final, a semi and a final, you have pretty much played three grand finals where it takes a lot out of you physically and psychologically,” he said. “It almost feels for the players like it’s the end of the season, but you have to pick yourself up again and there’s no greater tournament or game than this one now.”

Popovic believed his players would manage to lift for the match when they considered what was at stake.

“The players realise the magnitude of this tournament, where they are playing and why they are here. We have to remember that only five weeks ago they were crowned the champions of Asia,” he said. “That is why they are here – and actually why you [the media] are here. When you look at past winners, the coaches and teams that have been here and the celebrations they have had, you realise how big this competition is. We should be honoured and privileged to be here.

“The players want to do the Wanderers and Australian football proud. We have a lot of respect for the competition, and for Cruz Azul, but we want to show them we deserve to be here, which we do.”

Describing the contest as another “grand final”, Popovic said he had total confidence his battle-weary side – which at least carries no injuries – wouldn’t let anyone down back home.

“This is the World Cup of clubs and we are here and will do ourselves proud on Saturday, I am sure of that,” he said. “The group is ready. I know when we prepare well, we play well.”

Inaction on internet piracy threatened film funding, says Village Roadshow chief Graham Burke

Village Roadshow boss Graham Burke has revealed his company risked losing finance to produce feature films if the government failed to combat internet piracy.

Mr Burke welcomed the Abbott government’s 120-day deadline for internet service providers (ISPs) and entertainment companies, including Village, to negotiate a industry code to curb illegal downloading.

“I think it will work,” said Mr Burke when asked if ISPs, such as iiNet, and Village could negotiate a strategy.

“Because if not, the government will impose a solution, so it will work.”

Federal Attorney George Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull said if ISPs and rights holders fail to draft a strategy, the government would create a binding code for them.

Village and iiNet have tried to work out a solution in the past but were unable to reach agreement.

Village wanted the government to order an ISP to slow the speed of an illegal downloader’s internet service for up to six months after three warnings. iiNet meanwhile maintained its job wasn’t to enforce the law and people downloaded movies illegally because viewing films legitimately had become too expensive.

But the problem has now become more pressing.

Mr Burke, who is in the US negotiating for films to produced in Australia, said Village’s financers, which are mainly international banks, had warned the company that they would be unable to fund movies if the government maintained the status quo.

“We had a problem because banks are the key to any form of production,” he said.

“Our banks were saying to us … If your government doesn’t do something to address the alarming levels that piracy is reaching, where your business is already being affected, and it becomes endemic, we’re not going to lend you money because you can’t demonstrate to us that you will get that money back’.

The two government ministers said they expected the industry code to include a warning notice system in which repeat illicit downloaders are sent notices informing them they are infringing copyright.

It will be educational in nature and not include penalties such as slowing internet speeds for repeat offenders. However, Mr Burke praised the government despite it not delivering exactly what he asked for.

The government will also amend the Copyright Act to enable rights holders to apply for a court order requiring ISPs to block access to overseas websites providing access to pirated content.

“The government is acting appropriately to protect creativity in Australia to make sure that there is another Red Dog and another Muriel’s Wedding and another Gallipoli, Mr Burke said, referring to three popular Australian films. He added the moves were needed ” to protect theatres as far reaching as Townsville and Hobart, Geelong and Parramatta … and to support tax-paying businesses.”

He said he was ready to negotiate with ISPs immediately: “Bring it on quick”.

“We will be looking for full co-operation to stamp out theft and people that are breaches, people that are destroying, like any breach or cancer, the Australian film production, exhibition and distribution industry, destroying jobs, destroying taxpayer revenue.

“So I’m ready. Whenever the government says time to me, I’m there.”

Military service

I am upset about my letter (Nov 24) having been misinterpreted resulting in over reacted responses.
Nanjing Night Net

I never questioned members of the armed forces bravery and love for their country, and certainly do not disrespect and ridicule them.

But I also believe that those not in uniform would bravely respond if this country was invaded.

I don’t intend to apologise for finding it shameful that young people have to try to be accepted by the ADF in order to escape unemployment and bleak job prospects.

If I held power my solution would be compulsory national service within Australia for six months or so for all reasonably fit 18 to 19 year olds of any race, religion or political persuasion.

That would serve national harmony, give them much needed self respect, pride and the strength and determination to successfully fight for a fair place in society.

Developing youth in the beef industry

(From left) Successful applicants presented to the Young Beef Producers Forum in Roma included Amanda Moohan, Qld; Rachel Hoolihan, Qld; Barb Bishop, director of Barbara Bishop & Associates, who will be delivering the personal development program; Blythe Calnan, WA; and Joanna Robertson, Qld. Sharing knowledge of the beef industry is what drives the inaugural Graeme Acton Beef Connections Mentor Program.
Nanjing Night Net

Nine of the beef industry’s best and brightest young minds were announced as successful candidates recently at the Roma Young Beef Producers Forum.

“The quality of the 49 applications received was outstanding across the board, and so tough was the task of separating candidates for the eight spots on offer, that we have provided an additional ninth position to cater for another worthy recipient,” Beef Australia Chairman Blair Angus said.

The successful candidates are all aged between 25 and 35 and will now have access to mentoring from experienced beef industry leaders, as well as formal personal development training.

Beef Connections is a new initiative of the Beef Australia 2015 Next Generation committee and is being supported by Westpac Agribusiness to assist in the acquisition and retention of talented young people in the beef industry.

The Beef Connections program was named in honour of the late Graeme Acton, who was renowned for supporting young people in entering the sector and generously sharing with them his extensive knowledge.

“A core goal of Beef Australia is to act as a platform to build the capacity of the national beef industry, so it is particularly pleasing that the successful applicants are from all parts of the country and currently have roles at various points along the length of the beef supply chain,” Mr Angus said.

Successful candidates include Adam Coffey, producer, NT, Amanda Moohen, producer, Qld, Ashley Kirk, producer, Qld, Blythe Calnan, live export industry, WA, Donald Hook, ag education, WA, Joanna Robertson, DAFF employee, Qld, Kenrick Cross, producer, NSW, Rachel Hoolihan, agribusiness, Qld and Sarah Rutledge, marketing, Qld

The successful candidates will be paired with a mentor who has proven leadership skills in agricultural industry and will support participants to achieve their personal development aspirations.

Mentors will be selected during December and introduced to the participants in January 2015, ahead of the Building Your Future Conference to be held in Brisbane in February 2015.

YOUR SAY: Birding NSW in dismay after learning of trees cut down along Memory Lane, Grenfell

Letter to the Grenfell Record Editor. December 10, 2014
Nanjing Night Net

Ngaire Soley, Editor

Grenfell Record

Grenfell, NSW 2810

Dear Madam

Members of Birding NSW were dismayed to learn that at least sixteen Yellow Box and Blakely’s Red Gum trees had been cut down beside the sewage treatment works to facilitate the movement of trucks along Memory Lane for a new industrial site. These old trees offered important resources for birds and animals. The threatened Superb Parrots and other parrots use nesting holes which only occur in such old trees. Both tree species provide rich sources of nectar for many bird species including parrots and honeyeaters. In addition to destroying important bird habitat, employees of Grenfell Council have destroyed much of Grenfell Bird Trail 6. Grenfell Bird Trails bring bird watching tourists to the Grenfell area. Such tourists use the town’s resources and are important sources of income.

Birding NSW Logo

Since 2011, members of Birding NSW have been carrying out bird surveys every six months around Grenfell. Our club chose to survey in the Grenfell area because of the well-established system of Weddin Bird Trails, with many trails being important for Superb Parrots as they are along roads lined with Yellow Box and Blakely’s Red Gums. Survey data are recorded in BirdLife Australia’s database of bird sightings throughout Australia. Grenfell is in the centre of the internationally recognised South West Slopes Important Bird and Biodiversity Area (IBA), one of 45 IBAs in NSW established by BirdLife Australia as part of BirdLife International’s worldwide network of IBAs. This IBA is recognised as important for four globally endangered bird species including Superb Parrots as well as for several threatened woodland bird species.

We hope that in future Council will take steps to ensure that trees are not removed without careful considerations of the impact on native birds and animals. In particular Birding NSW supports calls from Grenfell residents for Council to set up an Environment Advisory Committee.

With best wishes

Yours sincerely

Stawell particle physics laboratory receives $1.57m boost

Stawell Gold Mines.STAWELL’S proposed cutting-edge particle physics laboratory is a step closer after a $1.57-million boost.
Nanjing Night Net

The State Government commitment will help Australian scientists hunt for dark matter a kilometre underground in Stawell’s gold mine.

Project leader Elisabetta Barberio said the funding would help physicists to create the Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory and construct a dark matter particle detector paired with a matching detector under an Italian mountain.

She said the project could start once the Federal Government matched the funding.

She said researchers discussed plans to find dark matter at Stawell at the national physics congress in Canberra.

‘‘We hope to start testing in 2015,’’ she said.

‘‘We and our Italian colleagues will create two experiments – one deep in Stawell’s gold mine, the other under the Italian mountains at GranSasso.’’

Professor Barberio said the Italian researchers thought they might have already detected dark matter particles.

She said the identical experiments at Stawell and Gran Sasso would confirm their discovery.

She said having a laboratory in the southern hemisphere would allow researchers to determine the effects of seasons on the experiment.

The Stawell Gold Mine Future Possibilities project control group identified an opportunity to use part of the underground mine to support a major international scientific investigation earlier this year.

The Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics has also expressed interest in using the mine to detect dark matter.

The Stawell Underground Physics Laboratory would be a partnership between government, the education sector and industry aimed at delivering significant investment, economic, employment and research outcomes across the region.

Partners include the Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics, the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics and Stawell gold mine owner Crocodile Gold.

Northern Grampians Shire Council declined to comment on the announcement.

“Take a photo of this,” his friend said.

Holbrook boys Nick Pugh, 24, and Kerrod Spokes, 21, were relaxing in a blow-up pool a short walk away with empty beer bottles bobbing beside them.

“It’s so much fun,” Mr Spokes said. “Just hanging out with mates.”

Di Chaplin, 26, from Melbourne, and her friend Kate Tyquin, 28, from Gippsland were walking with drinks in hand towards the main stage where all was ready for the night’s music.

They travel to B & S balls across the state and they had planned their priorities for Holbrook’s event.

“Catching up with mates is the first priority,” Miss Tyquin said.

“Drinking second, boys third.”

Miss Chaplin was not fussy about who she would kiss as the clock struck midnight.

“Anyone who’s standing in front of me,” she said.

Holbrook committee member Debbie Mills said when she had attended B & S balls growing up in Hay, it was a completely different affair.

She said the men would dress in suits and it was invitation-only.

“The local gentry would have all the young, unattached males and females attend,” Ms Mills said.

“To know someone who was on the committee to be able to get an invite to a B & S ball — you were in. It’s morphed into something else.”

Ms Mills said the Holbrook bypass, due to finish in June, would not effect the future of the event.

“They’ll turn up anyway,” she said.

She said it was a big ticket event for the town everything sourced from Holbrook businesses.
