The Judge will be probably one of the worst Judges in the world. Where is the fairness to the driver who was driving on his lane and hitting by the car which was driving on wrong side?
It’s totally ridiculous.

The Al-Furqan Islamic Center was in Springvale South and it was 10 minutes walk from my home in Springvale. I speak with my friend Muslim and his friends they are regular visitor to the center. I asked about their view on Australian peoples and Government. We frankly discussed about Islamist extremism in Australia.
They believe Muslims’ youth who were arrested by AFP was setting up by Australian Government and AFP.
He told me Muslims who pay income tax to Government was against the Islamic law and Muslims were setting up by Australian Government because Australian Government does not like Muslim. Also 9/11 was evil worked of US Government for to colonized oil rich Iraq and invade Muslim countries. They believe Australia will becoming Islamic nation and we should practice Sharia law. He compares birth rate between other Australians’ families and Muslims’ families. Average Muslim family has 8 or more children and other Australian families only have one or two children. So Muslim will become major population of Australia. I asked it’s what Muslims believe and he said all Muslims believe it. He invites me to come to Mosque with him. He and his friends from Al-Furqan Islamic Center are friendly peoples but their ideology was difference from other migrant communities in Springvale. No one has complained about the Al-Furqan Islamic Center in Springvale South because it was not Mosque and no noisy like Mosque. The Al-Furqan Islamic Center was like an ideology exchange center for Muslims.

The solution for refugees fleeing war torn African countries and human smuggling is creating safe haven permanent refugee camp in within their own country with full International Military protection. There will be lost of human lives as long as the refugees crossing the sea by unseaworthy boat.
Refugees host countries in EU were helpless because EU Human Right Commission has over written local immigration law. War refugees and Economy refugees will try to enter Europe as long as EU welcome with flowers and accommodation.
There's no question about mass migration of refugees have disturbing local peoples' lives. Also the responsibility for refugees is burden for economy struggling European countries. Building permanent refugee camps in within their own country is cheaper and save human lives.
It's impossible for to use Australia method in Europe because Europe is different story and different law. I think creating safe haven refugees city in war torn country by full Military protection is only solution for mass refugees' migration to Europe and lost of lives at sea.

Global Climate changing was starting from beginning of the earth and the warmer weather has contributed for developing of life on earth. There's no Global warming in last 17 + years as according the US firm RSS (Remote Sensing Systems) satellite data.
President Obama, Climate change experts, UN Climate change commission and pro Climate change supporters are ignoring actual result of scientific research and campaigning with their own delusion version of Climate change theory.
I accepted human contribution for warm weather but not by Carbon dioxide and other gasses as what Climate change experts said.
For example, if you have cutting down rainforest in your country and then your country will suffer from temperature raising, flooding, air pollution and drought because without rainforest no tree will absorb heat from sun and without rainforest, it’s impossible to cooling down warm air which carry water vapor for to rain when cloud was passing over land. The rainforest store rain water and prevent flooding.
Carbon and other gases in atmosphere do not contribute our earth temperature changing. The earth temperature has been changing since earth was formed. Climate change experts and their followers must accept reality and they must start new useful research for earth and mankind. I don’t want to point out how wrong their past prediction on climate change.

Senior Iranian negotiator Abbas Araqchi told reporters dispatching stockpiles abroad “was not on Iran’s agenda”.
It means Iran has planned to use them in future and its possibility of producing unclear weapons. I don’t think Israeli Government will accept it.

donkusai, I agreed with you. However I don't miss F1 for not being showing live on Free To Air TV Channels because Formula One race is boring and fewer cars left on track. I don't surprised driver like Max Verstappen and Phillip Nsr score points more than experienced drivers in two races because most teams are sorting out reliable issue with new technology. F1 is going wrong direction. If F1 wanted to go Green and then FIA should be thinking about pure Electric or Hydrogen Formula One race and using more advance technology than Formula E. Honda was wrong to come back to Formula One. Honda should be competing in GTE or GTE-Pro in WEC. It's more relevance to car manufacture business than current Formula One. I believe one day GTE and GTE-Pro will split from main LMP classes in WEC.

I think only North Korea, South Korea and Russia Government will accept Chinese Military invitation for taking parade in Beijing. Also African Governments will send their armed forces to participate in parade but it’s depending how much Communist Government has promising to give gift and costs for their contribution on Communist Chinese’s propaganda show.

Japanese parents, Teachers and Government should encourage children to learn English language from early age Primary School student if the child has capability of learning and child does not have learning difficulty. Students should study English language for their future employment and not for just traveling overseas. English language is universal language and even France Government has changing its view toward English language. If you have high expectation for you're professional in future and then you better study English language hard from early age.
Today learning English language doesn't cost much to you because you can learn English language from Internet. I found website it’s explain about Grammar usage, other website teaching pronunciation in English and American and another website teaching words use in sentence. You don't need to go to Nova. By the way, I don't know whether Nova still exists as Language School in Japan or not because we have not been back to Japan for decade.
I agreed some students may have difficult to learn English language because of their accent. An English proficiency will be important part of future Japanese economy.
Government should employ native English speakers in Government public School.
Teaching English language from Primary School is best way to learn English as second language. Also learning more than one language in early age will improve their brain power and ability in sorting difficult problem. It looks like training brain program.
Children should be learning English from native English speaker from country like England, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and US.

Will Assange go to Sweden to face rape charges against him if DNA proved he had raped two women under Swedish Law?
It’s far from over. I don't think Assange will go to Sweden. Assange is coward. Assange must go to Sweden and face the rape charges against him if Swedish prosecutor option to charge Assange with raped on two women.

Sometime the truth is hard to swallow for some peoples. PM Tony Abbott was telling the truth but other opportunist politicians are trying to cheap score on truth. WA State Government's services can not provide in remote area where about 10 or 20 families are living because increasing costs and Government budget shrinking. The should be living within community. The major problems in Aboriginal Community was Alcohol and illiterate. Also children do not go to school. I see nothing wrong with word which PM has choose to describe for those Aborigine peoples life style as "life style choice".

Who take responsible for drown of 300 peoples at sea?
If human right advocates and UN do not encourage them to risk their lives at sea and then they will be still alive in their own countries.
How many so called refugees’ boats need to sink at sea before human right advocates, UNHCR and EU Human Right Commissioner accept their part of responsibility in refugees drowning at sea? Also those peoples’ life won’t be easy when the arrived in Italy or other European nations because they can not find job and accommodation as what they were promised by human traffickers. They will become destitute in new land instead of happy and healthy human being.

Sadly Australian politic was manipulated and controlling by left wing media like ABC and Fairfax. These left wing Medias and Union always want Labor Government in Canberra. The problem with Labor is it doesn’t have right and talented peoples to govern Australia.
They are talkers and over promised but under delivery also big spender.
Tony Abbott does not have charming personality like Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard but he is 1000 time qualified for PM Job than those two labor jokers. Abbott Government has stopped the boats which costs over 11 billions dollars and still counting for Australia tax payers. Labor had never really save Australia from recession but Australian peoples were left with over $ 450 Billions debt. Abbott Government has trying to fix Labor debt but ABC doesn’t like it because ABC was one of victims of budget cut by Government. Also ABC thinks one day Coalition will sale off ABC or merger with SBS. So ABC is attacking Tony Abbot from day one he becoming PM.
If we think the person who has charming personality, popular and sweet talk and then we should ask Hugh Jackman for PM of Australia.
Tony Abbot given Knight of the Order of Australia to Prince Philip was not big deal because other Commonwealth nations have given various kinds of honor to Prince Philip.
It doesn’t cost any cent for given Knight to Prince Philip. I do understand some peoples do not like Prince Philip and also they do not like Tony Abbott personality too. Unfortunately, the Prince Philip’s Knighthood becoming weapon for left wing medias to attack Tony Abbott.
The important thing for PM of Australia is performance of his PM job. Tony Abbot is doing his job better than previous Labor Government in difficult circumstance. We have voted and choose Tony Abbot as Coalition leader in last election and we don’t want PM change in Canberra. ABC, Fairfax and left wing Medias should be stop breaking unity between Coalition Government and let Tony Abbott fair go.
Any MPs who afraid of losing their seat and then they should quit politic because they are self serving politician and they are useless for Australian peoples and nation.

It doesn't matter whether the Muslims upset or not upset they are same. They want to kill infidels anyway. There's no medicine to cure those Muslim extremists and they do not have tolerate with insulting Allah and Islam region. Western politic is too corrupted and too late to prevent crash between Freedom and Islam religion. Majority of politicians are still telling their citizens Multiculturalism is doing well but it's bull-shit. Only society has to swallow bitter pills and worrying about their welfare day and night. Politicians are smiling and pretending for votes from Muslims voters. In the end, their citizens have to pay the price for politicians' madness. Japan must learn from Western European nation's Multiculturalism problem.
