'That's not really how it works': AMP's royal commission shambles

'That's not really how it works': AMP's royal commission shambles



2018-04-16T23:20:00+0000

AMP’s financial planning arm was riddled with misconduct and had identified more than 500 planners who had committed fraud, were dishonest or incompetent, the royal commission heard.

AMP lurched from bad to worse at the royal commission on Monday with its executive apologising but was unable to say for what.

Guardian Australia

"We will never forget." The French prime minister delivered a powerful, emotional speech at Villers-Bretonneux in honour of the Anzacs:
"Looking at the names of the 11,000 Australians who died for France and for freedom, I could not help thinking of the terrible loneliness which these thousands of young Australians must have felt as their young lives were cut short in a foreign country."
#LestWeForget

Read the speech in full: "We will never forget that 100 years ago a young and brave nation on the other side of the world made history by writing our history" www.theguardian.com/news/commentisfree/2018/apr/25/the-earth-is-his-only-friend-french-prime-mini...

Malcom certainly didn't deliver a Paul Keating speech, felt sorry for him, it was boring, sack his speech writers! It won't go down in history, but the French prime ministers was beautiful, well thought out, historically accurate and powerful!❤️

The French Prime Minister seems to have a better grasp on the meaning and sanctity of Anzac Day than the commentariat at the ABC. His intonements at Villers-Bretonneux pay due respect to the Australians who gave their lives for France and freedom.

"We cannot relive these stories. The mud, the rats, the lice, the gas, the shellfire, the fallen comrades, we can never truly imagine what it was like. " Such a telling statement. He did an incredible job with this speech, which has been repeatedly shown here in France. As a French citizen and an Australian citizen, I thank Édouard Philippe for delivering this speech/eulogy.

$100 million to build the war memorial in France $500 million to renovate the war memorial in Canberra Money spent on remembering the dead while living veterans are homeless and living in poverty. I want a memorial to my family members who fought in that terrible war, I want a system of trenches dug into some muddy cold barren field. I want it filled with rats, lice, fleas, mud, damp, the rusty wire, the human sewage the stench of cordite gas and death. Fill the air with the constant noise of bullets bombs and the screams of the wounded and dying. I want anyone who takes office as a politician to live in this trench for a month, eating the rations and wearing the clothes of our diggers. No champaign, no polished floors, no climate controlled environment, no slick audiovisual production. Just the reality of what happens when politicians fail to do what they are paid to do. Lest we forget.

He was the best and most moving speaker on the day...

Thank you , Prime Minister. An excellent and moving speech.

reminds me of this excellent Don McLean song on a similar theme: www.youtube.com/watch?v=p05aJNfWib8

I enjoyed the Anzac Girls series very much.

Tahlia Peterson the most beautiful speech

Et les neo-zelandais?????

Great speach

Young Hannah Mitchell, who was stung by the deadly Irukandji on Easter Sunday, recently visited the #rfdswa Jandakot base to view the aircraft she was in when she was transported from Karratha to Perth while in a coma.

Hannah, accompanied by her mum and friends, was also given a tour of our clinic and coordination centre by our medical director Stephen Langford.

Most of the action was a good 6-7km away until this unleashed only 1-2km down the beach hitting the water not far away.
Was certainly time to pack her up after this.
