Taking the gas

Construction work done came in at a thunderous $61.8 billion for the third quarter, the highest on record, with the result again skewed higher by the import of an LNG platform.


Drilling into the engineering construction figures, if you'll pardon the pun, we can see the enormous spike in Western Australia largely relating to an imported LNG platform, sending total engineering construction 68.4 per cent higher than a year earlier. 

Notably engineering work is also rising strongly in New South Wales and Victoria on the back of strength in infrastructure projects, with Queensland also now on a decent run.


Flats falling flat

Despite the record high quarterly result, residential construction is now in decline, with the value of detached house building done sliding for three consecutive quarters.

Looking specifically at the building of attached dwellings, work done is still absolutely flying in New South Wales, but is now declining in Victoria, and dropping very sharply in Queensland (down 22 per cent since the end of last year, and falling).

Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) / Canadian Armed Forces Boeing CC-177 Globemaster III (C-17A) 177701 Spotted at Rockhampton Airport as "Canforce 3634" Central Queensland Plane Spotting

Surely one of the highlights on the Central Queensland Plane Spotting Blog for 2107 came on Wednesday 22 November when Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) / Canadian Armed Forces Boeing CC-177 Globemaster III (C-17A) 177701 was spotted completing a 'touch-and-go' at Rockhampton Airport.


The massive transport aircraft was a very pleasant surprise and appeared to fly into Rocky from the North-West.  After completing the 'touch-and-go' on Runway 15 at Rockhampton Airport, the CC-177, which was flying as 'CFC3634'/"Canforce 3634", departed back to RAAF Base Amberley where it looked to arrive from overseas earlier in the week.

Renewables, coal and culture war "IndyWatch Feed Economics.au"

In the final week of the Queensland election campaign, Ive been busy trying to do what I can to influence the result. Ive put out a couple of opinion pieces about the choice between coal and renewable energy. This one, in The Guardian, focuses on the central role of the culture war in motivating rightwing opposition to renewable energy. In The Conversation, I look at the economics and business aspects and debunk the idea that ultrasupercritical technology makes coal-fired power a high efficiency, low emissions technology

Also, in New Matilda, Im collaborating with Morgan Brigg and Kristen Lyons of the Global Change Institute to produce a five-part series on Adani and the resistance to the project by the Wangan and Jagalingou people.

Adani finance deal imminent: report "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Adani Group is reportedly close to announcing it has the money to build its controversial Queensland coal mine and rail link, but there are concerns the involvement of Chinese cash could cost Australia jobs.

An unnamed director of Adani Mining has told industry figures that the company had secured Chinese funding for the Carmichael mine and associated rail line, the ABC says.

He reportedly said Adani wouldnt need a loan of up to $1 billion from the taxpayer-funded Northern Australian Infrastructure Facility for the rail line.

A formal announcement about the financing deal is imminent.

But the ABC reports that reliance on funds from Chinese enterprises and export credit agencies could cost Australia jobs associated with the project.

Such Chinese interests invariably require that materials for key infrastructure are sourced from China and that effective shifts work out of Australia, the ABC said.

The Queensland Government Is The Real Driver In Adanis Dirty Land Grab "GroovUs Feed Anews"

A key issue in the upcoming Queensland election issue is the Adani coal mine, a massive project slated for development in the Carmichael basin north west of Brisbane. To ensure it happens, the Queensland Government is threatening to compulsory acquire land from the local Traditional Owners. In the second in a five part series, Kristen Lyons explains.

When Adani purchased the coal tenement for its proposed Carmichael mine in 2010, then Premier Anna Bligh declared the proposed mine and related infrastructure project could generate more than 11,000 jobs and lucrative economic returns for Queenslanders.

The rhetoric about the Adani Carmichael mine, coming in turn from the Newman, and later Palaszczuk Governments, however, has always been about more than simply more jobs and more growth.

The Galilee Basin has been lauded as Queenslands last coal frontier. The region has been described as the most prospective area outside that currently being mined and on this basis has seen successive Queensland Governments establish policy settings and financial breaks, as well as expedite approval processes and champion pro-mining rhetoric, to drive a state-led enclosure of Aboriginal and pastoral lands to open up the Galilee Basin for coal mining.

And for Adani, this constitutes a land grab of Wangan and Jagalingou Country. While Wangan and Jagalingou people are pulled in multiple directions by competing interests, the Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Council (W&J) have asserted sustained opposition to Adanis proposed mine.

Despite their resistance, and a tireless campaign built around a defense of the right to say no, the Queensland Government has failed to even acknowledge W&Js opposition to the mine, a position simply incongruent with their coal extraction agenda for the region.

Instead, the Queensland Government has walked over Indigenous rights in its efforts to secure W&J country, and to open up the Galilee Basin for the final frontier in a long history of often violent extractivism.

Our research exposes some of the direct and covert manoeuvres of the Queensland Government in sidelining the rights of Traditional Owners to make way for Adanis mines. And given the current elevation of the A...

Retired Brisbane magistrate William John Randall found guilty of child-sex charges "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Randall, who retired just last year from his position as referee in the Small Claims Tribunal after years on the bench, continues to maintain his innocence.

He pleaded not guilty in the Brisbane District Court last week to 18 charges including maintaining a relationship with a child, indecent treatment and sexual assault.

His lawyers cross-examined the victim in the witness box about the allegations, accusing him of fabricating lies about being abused hundreds of times so he could later sue Randall.

However, the jury dismissed this and returned guilty verdicts.

Randall was on Tuesday sentenced to nine years jail, and will be eligible for parole after serving half of that time.

Judge Catherine Muir described Randalls behaviour as shocking and reprehensible.

Extract ABC Australia article on this matter

 

Queensland magistrate William Randall will get a very hard time in jail and will have to be in protective custody. Even in protective custody, he wont be safe. Every time he steps out of his cell, hell be a target.

4.5 to 9 years is a very long time to spend in jail under those circumstances.

William Randall is fortunate not to live in California, where hed be jailed for life, Indonesia, where hed be chemically castrated or worse, or ISIS areas of Syria, where hed be thrown off a building.

Cory Bernardi and the Australian Christian Lobbys call arms "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Contributed by Joe Montero

At last Saturdays (17 November 2017) national conference of the Australian Christian Lobby in Sydney, Senator Cory Bernardi told the delegates that the campaign against same-sex marriage in Australia was an extraordinary success, despite losing the national postal survey.

These were not the words of a deluded and frustrated individual. They were calculated and had a specific purpose. They were concerned with what to do in the period after the overwhelming victory of the Yes vote.

For Bernardi and those who agreed with him, the Conference was an occasion to get on with the next phase of bringing a collective view of the world that would propel Australia into the Middle Ages, where religion and politics were intertwined and any deviation from the prescribed format would not be tolerated.

The Senator had left the Liberal Party earlier this year, because in his view it had moved away from from conservative principle. He went on to form the Australian Conservative Party. The title is inaccurate because the Bernardi view of the world has nothing to do with conservatism and a lot more to do with with the reactionary radicalism that he shares with others in the Australian Christian Lobby and outside it.  The difference is important.  The radicals do not seek to keep the status quo, but to change it in their own direction.

The Australian Christian Lobby claims to represent Christianity in Australia. It does nothing of the sort. A significant of its leadership and support comes form a section of the Pentecostal tradition. Hillsong is intimately connected and jointly sponsored the Coalition for Marriage.  There are business money links. There are links to the Sydney based traditionalist leadership of the Methodist and Catholic churches. There is also a close connection with similarly minded factions in the Liberal and National parties.

The model and inspiration for the Australian Christian Lobby is what is often called the American Christian Right, which emerged in opposition to the ending of segregation and the schools and bussing in black children.

One of the two original founders is the retired Baptist minister and Queensland businessman,...

Wilkie backs push against parliament delay "GroovUs Feed Anews"

CANBERRA [AAP]

Crossbench MP Andrew Wilkie says the federal parliament has a moral imperative to sit next week as Turnbull government ministers line up to defend deferring the lower house session.

Labor has drafted a letter petitioning Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to reverse his decision to postpone the House of Representatives sitting to December 4.

Victorian independent Cathy McGowan has confirmed she will not take part in any protest sitting, but her four crossbench colleagues are expected to co-sign Labors letter.

Their support would mean 73 MPs support the push the same number the government has on the floor of the house with Barnaby Joyce and John Alexander off fighting by-elections.

With numbers being that close surely theres a moral imperative if not a legal imperative on the prime minister agreeing that the parliament would sit next week, Mr Wilkie told ABC Radio.

Leader of the House Christopher Pyne said the delay would give the Senate time to pass the same-sex marriage bill and allow parliament to sort out the dual citizenship mess.

However, the announcement came just hours after Queensland LNP senator Barry OSullivan said up to four coalition MPs were considering breaking coalition ranks to vote for an inquiry into the banks.

Mr Pyne insisted the decision to delay the return of parliament had nothing to do with thwarting Labor or rogue government backbenchers mustering the necessary votes to launch an investigation into the banks.

Theres no motion or bill to establish a banking royal commission either before the Senate or the House of Representatives, he told ABC radio.

Treasurer Scott Morrison also played down the link but Opposition Leader Bill Shorten grabbed it with both hands.

There is no doubt in my mind that one of the reasons why Mr Turnbull has cancelled parliament next week is because he knows a banking royal commission is inevitable, Mr Shorten said.

And he will do everything he can d...

Labors nose in front in Qld: poll "GroovUs Feed Anews"

BRISBANE [AAP]

Queensland Labor has its nose in front of the LNP with just days left until the state vote.

A ReachTEL poll, for Sky News, has Labor ahead of the LNP 51 per cent to 49, after preferences.

Labor is also ahead on the primary vote, with 34 per cent of Queenslanders saying theyll vote for the incumbent party, to the LNPs 30 per cent. One Nation has 17 per cent support, while the Greens are on 10 per cent.

This is the first time that Labor has gained the lead in a two-party result, in a ReachTEL poll. So its certainly a move, ReachTELs James Stewart has told Sky News.

ReachTEL also polled voters in three marginal seats.

Labor and One Nation are neck and neck in the Labor-held seat of Thuringowa, with both parties on 50 per cent in the Townsville-based electorate.

The contest for the LNP-held seat of Whitsunday has One Nation on 50.5 per cent to Labors 49.5 per cent.

In Brisbanes western suburbs, Labors Local Government Minister Mark Furner is expected to hang on to the marginal seat of Ferny Grove, with the poll suggesting hell manage 54 per cent of the vote, to the LNPs 46 per cent.

Anning defection hits One Nation

But the defection of former One Nation senator Fraser Anning has hurt the partys prospects in the Queensland election, another poll suggests.

A statewide Galaxy poll for The Courier-Mail, conducted late last week, shows two out of five Queenslanders are now less likely to support Pauline Hansons party.

Senator Anning split with One Nation an hour after being sworn in in Canberra, claiming Senator Hanson forced him out, but the One Nation leader says he quit.

The Galaxy poll of more than 1000 Queenslanders showed 41 per cent are less likely to hand their vote to One Nation because of what happened in Canberra.

But it also found 46 per cent of poll respondents werent influenced by the defection, and seven per cent are now more likely to back the party.

Senator Hanson will hit the campaign trail in her battler bus again on Tuesday, after taking...
