      Tony Abbott's consolation prize: a $300k yearly pension. Or a $1.5m lump sump plus $153k yearly pension

      ^ Decisions decisions! I believe we now have the most competent and forward thinking PM since Keating of the 1990s. Turnbull will now face the challenge of staring down the strong conservative bloc in the party..but he is popular and has the people behind him.

    3. NUT


      Pictures on Australian television showed people with their hands up against a window, and a black flag with Arabic writing. (quoted from the bbc site) it doesn't sound too good

    4. Lauren


      I wouldn't be surprised if it's a lone nutter doing a sort of copy cat thing.

  12. Australia's warmest s/Spring on record.

    1. lassie23


      Come to Britain before the summer, so you don't get roasted!

      Australia keep smashing records rather scary, and those of the hot variety.

    3. Yarmy


      Barry95. I know, that's what I'm saying. I was there when it's nearly at its hottest. Being older than 5, i am familiar with the difference between the NH and SH.

  14. Australia's second warmest October, seems to be a planetary condition at the moment

    1. lassie23


      It has been a very warm year in the UK, only August was cool!

    2. IanR


      even october has 'felt' warmer than august, yes, very mild past winter, warm summer, the tide has too turn at some point,unless global warming really is kicking in (for the environmental thread) I just believe its natural variation and protracted below average will come with vengance at some point soon

  15. Fellow Tasmanian Richard Flanagan wins famous Man Booker award for his book "The Narrow Road To The Deep North"...if only the cars were sounding their horns right now..

    1. SomeLikeItHot


      Hooray. About POW on the Burma railroad relating to his father's experiences there and interviews he had with some of the surviving guards.

    2. Styx


      I must read one of his books soon, in recognition of his achievement. Unfortuently the local establishment is quite cool on him due to his environmental activism down here.

  16. BREAKING NEWS: Destructive thunderstorm heading for Sydney with major alerts, wind speed measure of 103mile/ph recorded at Wattamolla, just south of Sydney.

      I reckon that is the Blue Mountains, probably Blackheath, near Sydney (about 1100m asl and 60-80miles west) Not Sydney itself as temps are around 10c in Sydney Basin according to the BOM

    3. Mapantz


      Someone updated to say it's Lithgow. Crazy weather. :)

    4. SomeLikeItHot


      Crazy indeed about 110 mm rain in some suburbs in just over 2 hrs.

  17. Perth 33.2C this afternoon and probably still on the rise - beating the 1918 record for September by 0.5C so far. Parts of the continent starting to show signs of unusual heat so soon after winter's end.

    1. Styx


      wow..33.8C now, that's the old record gone by 1.1C. Quite a significant margin

    2. Styx


      peaked at 34.2C, 1.5C above the previous record

  18. Darwin breaks record for August cold with a minimum of 13.0 last night (8 below). Records since 1941. m

    2. Scorcher


      sounds freezing!

  19. Person snatched by crocodile near Darwin this evening, third croc fatality of the year

  20. Adelaide 0.9C this morning, equal coldest August night in its 126 years of weather records. Add in the inevitable UHI for a population of 1 million, then I call the coldest.

    1. Eugene


      lol if 0.9C was the lowest temp in a city this winter here the razor blades would be out

  21. Snowing in Canberra at 4pm and 3C as strong cold outbreak affects south east Australia

    1. lassie23

    4. Scorcher


      Impressive reading for a place at Brisbane's latitude

  23. Will, Kate and George continue their Australian adventure holiday with a trip to Uluru

    3. Bobby
