Neo-Nazi Sonnenkrieg Division to become first right-wing terrorist organisation listed in Australia

A right-wing extremist group is set to be formally listed as a terrorist organisation for the first time in Australia.

Sonnenkrieg Division, a UK-based neo-Nazi group, will be effectively banned in Australia once its listing as a terror group is confirmed.

The group has been outlawed in the UK since early last year, and members have been convicted of encouraging terrorism, disseminating terror material, and preparations for a terrorist act.

Two Sonnenkrieg Division members were convicted in 2019 for plotting to attack the British royal family.

A good start, but more needs to be done to weed these fucking scumbags out.

Gotta love Aussie Bob. This is one of his classic quotes from a few years ago now. He does represent his electorate really well though (crazy outback people).

Some more words of wisdom from Bob:

Quote
I would walk to Bourke backwards if the gay population of North Queensland is any more than 0.001%,

His half-brother Carl later came out as gay.

The EU ban on many UK shellfish exports is "indefensible" and "unnecessary", the environment secretary has said.


This "EU y u so mean" approach is hilarious, considering those rules for 3rd countries (which the UK voted for) have been in place for ages.
But good luck exporting your shellfish to "other markets", I'm sure they will be very fresh when they get there :lol

In hindsight the media sending the people into a frenzy over Diana's death was purely orchestrated to cover their own ass.

Quote
Chinese regulators have fined Alibaba Group, the world's biggest e-commerce company, 18.3 billion yuan ($3.7 billion) for anti-competitive tactics.

How ironic that a totalitarian dictatorship in a country where opposition parties are banned and the political system is (philosophically) opposed to commercial competition would issue a fine for anticompetitive behaviour!!

Only in modern China...

The UK is continuing to suggest an SPS "trusted trader" scheme which would sharply reduce the controls on eligible traders who could show the EU they have secure and auditable supply chains.

The EU rejected this idea at an earlier stage of the Brexit process.


So for those just joining us:

UK: "We want X"

EU: "Afraid it will have to be Y"

UK: "OK then, let's sign the deal!"

3 months later

UK: "BTW we'll just do X for a while"

EU and everyone else: "The fuck?"

UK: "OK let's meet and discuss. We'd like to do X how does that sound?"


Unbelievable :lol

Turns out Russia attacked NATO (Czech Republic) in 2014. When an infamous GRU unit blew up an arms depot killing civilians.

It was Parkinson's and no clue.

Edit: Looked into it some more. He supposedly had cancer treatment and parkinson, but the only people who reported on it were two british newspapers. (The Sun and The Daily Mirror. Which both seem like shitrags.) The story came originally from some Putin critic.
