Who’s Australia’s biggest media tart? Crikey names him. James Packer v David Gyngell: the fist-fight and the bidding war. Another day, another political donations scandal: Bernard Keane on the solution. Meet Australia’s modern-day mandarins. Budget cuts? Look at the rorts first. Newsagents gang up on an industry blogger. Plus should cyclists be licensed?
We were wrong. The streets of Sydney really are becoming more violent. A particularly nasty incident yesterday is a prime example …
It’s what Sydney’s newspapers — and David Gyngell’s own television network — have been saying for some time: there’s an insidious culture of bogans punching on and creating fear in the community.
Barry O’Farrell’s crackdown on violence is timely. The community must be protected from these thugs, who have little regard for decency and, apparently, personal integrity.
If you spot the suspects please alert the police. Immediately.
