There is a case to have uniform penalty rates for the weekend - having separate rates for Saturday and Sunday reflects a cultural division that has faded (in part because of declining religiosity, but actually mainly because Saturday was not always seen as an integral part of the weekend). It also promoted some accounting inefficiencies, if you want to look at it that way. But in suggesting there should be a uniform weekend penalty rate, I always advocated that it be set at the higher Sunday rate, because despite all this bullshit about "agility" and "modern connected 24/7 world", people clearly still value their weekends highly and it's an unsocial time to work.

I loved when Kelvin Thomson tried to contact one of the groups seeking the abolition of weekend penalty rates - by ringing them on Saturdays and Sundays and never getting a response.

Is it just me, or is the Age now starting to agitate against the Dandrews state government?

I can't find the article from a couple of days ago that prompted that post now, but their reporting of him now always seems to come with a negative or pessimistic slant. Admittedly I live in a Brunswick bubble, but I haven't spoken to anybody who's said anything negative about him. If anything, opinions are just a mild "yeah he's fine".

Today the Victoria section of the front page currently leads with "government can no longer ignore tide of public opinion". The actual article is headed differently and is more reasonable, though the idea Andrews moved slowly reflects the destructiveness of gauging reactions by hyper-obsessively following the 24/7 news cycle. The story broke on Thursday, and two days later the speaker and deputy speaker were gone—a massive shake-up, and in the past that would've been considered extremely rapid action. It still is when you compare it to federal intransigence over far greater misdeeds (Bishop, Ley, Sinodinos, the list goes on). This is exactly the sort of shoddy political reporting that we do not need. Here's the piece: Daniel Andrews must do more than tinker around the edges on MPs' entitlements

Gushing tributes over Leak in Australian were pathetic. He was "brave" apparently

Thank fuck we won't have to cop another racist or homophobic cartoon from that cretin Bill Leak.

As for WA, aaaahahahahaha see ya Barnett. What unbelievable swings, even by WA standards. The composition of the upper house may be a little worrying though. Fluoride Free WA and Daylight Saving Party both get seats; probably One Nation and the Liberal Democrats too. This is what you get when you have a malapportioned upper house that still uses Group Voting Tickets.

So was the ON result good or laughable? I've been away so only catching up now.

It seems to depend on how you read it. I haven't had a chance to look in detail, but on the face of it I would suggest the result is a mild disappointment for the party but still a concern for all of us who aren't bigots and racists. Basically, statewide they polled at only about half the level predicted by polling, but they did not contest every lower house seat so that skews the figures somewhat. In seats where they ran, they still underperformed but not as drastically, and they did well enough in rural areas for the Nats to have legitimate cause for concern, especially if the preference deal with the Libs is repeated elsewhere.

But on that preference deal, it burned the Libs. Hard. Their vote was catastrophic, worse than most predicted. The ALP were expected to win a swathe of seats, but through strong swings in marginal areas. Instead they got a massive statewide swing that allowed them to win theoretically safe Liberal seats. No doubt the deal with One Nation played its part in driving voters to the ALP, especially as One Nation fractured over the final week.

Has there been an Aussie national holiday named after the subject of this video yet? Because there damn well should be.
