I think it very admirable that he has quit his job to be a full time carer for his family. 

I guess he wont be going to work for a merchant bank for 5 times his current salary, probably while collecting his pension, any time soon then?

That is a shocking run of bad health in one family.  Time for a miracle or 3, eh?


  1. What a friend we have in Jesus,
    All our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
    Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
    Oh, what needless pain we bear,
    All because we do not carry
    Everything to God in prayer!
  2. Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged—
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful,
    Who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness;
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
  3. Are we weak and heavy-laden,
    Cumbered with a load of care?
    Precious Savior, still our refuge—
    Take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
    Thou wilt find a solace there.
  4. Blessed Savior, Thou hast promised
    Thou wilt all our burdens bear;
    May we ever, Lord, be bringing
    All to Thee in earnest prayer.
    Soon in glory bright, unclouded,
    There will be no need for prayer—
    Rapture, praise, and endless worship
    Will be our sweet portion there.

It's a relic isn't it. This site should be in a museum- the history of the internet, 1996.

we can all separate public and private life doc as far as commentary goes. He'l receive great admiration being a full time carer for his sick family. anyone would.

you readily tar politicians with the same brush as being either self interested, untrustworthy or bent. its your default setting to explain away any shenanigans and rorting of the public purse. i see mike was above that. on his own apparently.

he is/was a public figure. A Large one. commentary on his time as premier isnt off limits and never has been.

Although to be fair to the internet circa 1996, I do not remember any of this stuff- "”

The only parallel I can think of is in ye olde documents from the 18th century and earlier: all the f's everywhere that shouldn't be. The printers back then couldn't do the letter s- some letter anyway. You'll know what I'm talking about if you've read old printed documents.

Liberals fear split after Cory Bernardi blackout

Conservative senator Cory Bernardi has reignited fears that he will split from the Liberal Party to spearhead a Trump-inspired political movement after he deleted all of his social media activity on Twitter.

The South Australian, who has remained silent about his “massive” plans for the year ahead, describes himself as an Australian conservative on his public profiles, with no reference to the Liberal Party or Malcolm Turnbull.

Senior conservative MPs are now convinced Senator Bernardi will formally split within the next two weeks, despite rigorous ­attempts by his colleagues to persuade him to remain in the ­Coalition partyroom.

Fears have been simmering over the summer break that the Prime Minister could begin the year with further instability if Senator Bernardi decides to quit the party, something he has ­refused to rule out.

After reportedly spending the new year travelling on luxury cruise liner The World as a guest of billionaire Gina Rinehart, Senator Bernardi said yesterday his decision to delete his social media activity relating to his work as a government senator was not news.

“A ‘news’ story about my unchanged twitter profile seems to be an annual event. Must be another slow news day @australian,” Senator Bernardi claimed.

There are mixed views over what it would mean for the party if he does split, other than a consensus that it would increase difficulties for the government. One senior member of the conser­vative faction warned that the party would have no choice but to go to war with him if he defected.

They also accused moderate ministers aligned to Mr Turnbull of stoking the fires within conservative ranks. Right-aligned MPs fear the rise of One Nation will see the government lose a swath of seats at the next election unless the Prime Minister does more to appeal to the party’s conservative base.

“Deleting any reference to the Liberal Party on his social media profile is a bad look,” one of Sen­ator Bernardi’s colleagues said.

Another influential member of the majority conservative grouping said be believed Senator Bernardi had already made up his mind.

“Yes I am coming to the conclusion that he will split,” he said. “(Donald) Trump has given him delusions of grandeur.

“It’s hardly surprising — while he is liked and well-regarded by his colleagues, he has always been a bit of a lone wolf.

“He has never been a team player.”

However, they downplayed the significance of him leaving the Liberal tent, other than to say it meant the government would need to negotiate with another independent on the Senate crossbench to pass legislation.

Other colleagues expressed alarm at the potential for the conservative wing of the party to fracture, fearing it would spark an ideological schism on the scale of the Labor Party split in the 1950s.

“I think it would be catastrophic,” a conservative MP said.

There are also fears that Nat­ionals MP George Christensen could be tempted to follow suit. Last year, he warned that he wanted to see a “new way of doing things” from the government or he would struggle to remain ­“inside the tent”.

Senator Bernardi did not return calls yesterday.
