Ah, the nostalgic sight and sounds of yesteryear. And the sound of a steaming express thundering down the line. With the lonesome morn of the steam whistle. When things were so much simpler, we were the third wealthiest nation on the planet and a creditor one at that.

Where our parliament was populated by patriots and visionaries. Those days are gone, we are all but mired in massive debt and massive mortgages, that takes far, far longer to pay, if you can save a deposit.

And our parliament, now the province of prevaricating, quisling, Benedict Arnolds, grubs, con artists, pious hypocrites and crooks, clearly out to feather their own nests?

Little wonder those who remember, want to escape back to those less complicated times, when we were still a land of patriots and us against the world, not each other!

"In the most spectacular manner, Malcolm Turnbull has publicly trashed his relationship with Barnaby Joyce.

The results of what one Nationals source described as Mr Turnbull's "roll of the dice" at Thursday's extraordinary news conference are unpredictable.

Mr Turnbull gave his deputy prime minister no notice of the swingeing attack he would launch on Mr Joyce's extramarital affair with his former staffer, Vikki Campion, now his pregnant partner.

Mr Joyce had made a "shocking error of judgement", Mr Turnbull said, which had "set off a world of woe" for all the women affected and "appalled all of us"...."
