Moz, I don’t have a view on whether Assange is a sex criminal or not, nor do I have a view about Dotcom’s alleged crimes. That said, I wasn’t surprised by the disastrous performance of the Wikileaks Party.

BikeSaint in Sydney now works for the council as a bicycle planner
Moz, thanks for this reference. I've just started biking to work and am impressed by the progress made developing separated Sydney cycle routes but hadn't heard of Bike Saint (publicaddress now serving as a source of information about where I live as well as where I'm from, whodvethunkit).
The development of a cycling culture could be the Lord Mayor's enduring legacy (actually that possibly does her work with GLBTI community a little disservice)
And unfortunately it hasn’t swayed Tony Abbott one bit, and probably never will.
Possibly not, no. But he is a buffoon (it'd be interesting to see what he'd do if the Pope stated a clear view given his strong Catholic beliefs).
Has Rodney Hide ever visited Australia lately? Temps reaching close to 50 celsius in parts, 3-minute showers and all that.
2013 was the hottest year on record in Australia and all but one of the last ten years was 0.50 degrees C above average. More here.
Great news Russell, I hope it'll be available online so that us offshore kiwis can still tune in.
A 10-day trial in May. Was not expecting that length.
Does that suggest a lot of witnesses?
