One large fried rice please

Just mean Pauleens policies are making more sense to an educated lefty now that things are being bad. The left should follow Pauleens policies. Its the only logical future for Australia and now labour is seeing this

Penny Wrong gets called out an immediately pulls out her race card

Sooo lemme get it straight you get called out for doing the wrong thing then your only defense is to play the race card 🤔

She needs to stop using the race card she is inept at her job. Should be dismissed

Penny Wong is Anti Australian.

If she pointed that pen at me like that - I know that she would have received a surprise as to what I did with it in return.

Penny Wong you are completely laughable ... as all lefties do, play the race card. No substance just identity politics. What a JOKE!

Lol she should be ashamed of herself for her behavior. Could you imagine If a Male senator would have spoken to a female senator in that fashion!

Penny Wong is as stupid and useless as a sandwich without the bread

Cry me a river Penny Wong Play the victim card

Good on you Penny play the race card for cheap points

She should be sacked

Andrew Wheeler the real Penny Wong

Penny Wong is a looser hhhhhhh

Why do people get so hung up on what race they are we cant all be Anglo-Saxons just deal with who you are .

Doug Mokbel I think this woman would be too stupid to cook two minute noodles 🍝

Wong can’t take the truth

Gabriele Eichler 😚

She’s so, so Wong

This wasn't the time to play the race card... Terrible giving Asians a bad name. Wong time Wong place 😂

Nothing to do with your asian background, all about your natural ability in stupidity

She’s probably mad there aren’t any Asians on the bachelor too

Woolworths in Port Macquarie $1.57 for diesel .

Instead of giving us a tax break why doesn't the government give us a tax break at the petrol stations..... Nah that will truely make a difference to everyone as well As the gov pocket. It's all bs

Boycott the big service stations and fill up at the independent service stations. That will send a rocket up those fat cats.

Yeah wait till they turn it off cos of a fuel shortage I knew was coming 4 weeks ago told others but there all asleep !

Really.. you report it now.. the prices went up on Saturday

they should pay the same as us in the country poor city folks

Qld has been like this since Friday night

159.9 all over Victoria

Same as WA

Aussies should do what Germans did recently, 1 million car owners simply parked their cars on highways, any roads, locked them up and went home. The government soon dropped the price of petrol.

"Cuts in world oil production by opec nations, plus sanctions against a number of oil producing countries. So those factors combined have pushed up the price of world oil prices at the same time that demand for oil globally is at a seven year high" - Peter Khoury, NRMA

Petrol prices are soaring with Sydney drivers copping it at the bowser. Prices are set to go even higher.

This guy come with lies everytime since there is no reason in the world now which result in increasing oil prices

US want the rights to continue North Sea Oil Rig. And another Fuel/water reactor for water treatment facility. Somewhere. China wants the rights over Israel, Cobalt in South Africa.??. and Electric vehicles for sales of China and not European markets. Anyway. Not without Carbons by hydrocarbons tax. Gold... wants trade on world economy with tariffs on steel already used in wars and or trade by development and infrastructure for alluminium. Australia made the free trade with America. Tariff been overturned. Not without the oil nor the lng company on selling our coal to Japan. As Japan was a professor on carbon dioxides. So we trade... But while mining and energy are number one topics for fossil fuels, diesels and petrochemicals. So, is paying for lowering greenhouse gas emissions that are now under threat by electric vehicles and those using fossil fuels cars.. Israel are huge in minerals such as Cobalt. (Off topic). Trades for diamonds, (blood diamond) not too sure on Africas slave trade/children workers...??. But... coal, Iron Ore, Rare Earth, and gasses, renewable sources of energy and the transportation industry is all about steel for countries. To understand economics. I would like to introduce the hydrocarbon water facility in nuclear reactor for Washington DC, ROOSEVELT. The reason i studied thermal radiation detection in release of fission. This gave me the idea to understand organic chemicals and biological research. So. This putting extra money on transport must be a real kick in the teeth for tax payers and Toll payers. But it is ok. Turnbull will give big to the banks and hopefully fix your toll issue.. free would be nice.... And still get labor to pay for it using workers while they pay tax... However. This leaves Uranium at a NUMBER ONE ENEMY TO OIL SALES. Back on Africa. Poor buggers have Ebola. The disease for digging minerals... Then get tax payers to feel bad we have to think while watching television that an Environmental impact from U.N claiming that the world is sick from environmental impacts. (Mining). As infrastructure in Australia needs to be paid for. By revenue but they spent the states revenue... Where is that money????... Don't tell me stakeholders that want their money so Liberal wil offer banks, that repayment. Unless you miss out... So economic growth is very very important to Australia and the future of revenue when we talk about agricultural products and ethics in sustainability. Good luck finding the right answer to lower the buck.

Don't go work lol stay home, bring country to a standstill.Government needs money now yo pay for the election yet to be announced.

Time to use some of own oil n produce our own fuel instead of selling it off to other countries
