Make it more of a duel. Put greenies on one side of a creek, golfers on the other, say 50m apart, give them all drivers and a bucket of balls and open fire Razz

Not really a fair fight given most greenies probably couldn't make contact with the ball – how about they can have fire-twirling sticks and bongo-shaped grenades instead (admittedly, the golfers might not need to do much in this scenario). Razz

If you reckon any of the greenies would be capable of throwing a grenade or fir twirling stick 50 metres, sold. Most of the golfers probably couldn't, they'd likely be mostly geriatric old farts with funny pants and stuffed shirts.

Gold courses are used on military bases as firebreaks., The grass is kept short and leaves picked up. Channel 7 had an expose on the "rorts" and the reply was. What would you say if if a fire caused 100 million dollars in property damage and a further 400 million in equipment and capability losses. If bases closed the courses the public would demand it be turned into housing developments. It never went to air.

Global tax agreement update:

Quote:
Finance ministers from the G7 group of leading economies are confident of striking a deal on taxing multinational companies at their meeting in London.

The agreement is expected to include a global minimum rate of corporation tax.

It would target tech giants such as Amazon and Microsoft.

German finance minister Olaf Scholz said the deal would "change the world".

He said a 15% rate would help pay back debts that have built up during the pandemic - and that he was "absolutely confident" there would be an agreement.

"If we agree on the minimum taxation for corporates, this will help to go out of this race to the bottom we see with taxes today," he told the BBC.

"And this will help the countries we live in to finance their tasks, and - especially after Covid crisis and all the money we spent - to defend the health of the people, and to defend the economy."

French finance minister Bruno le Maire urged Ireland, which has one of the lowest corporate tax rates in the European Union, at 12.5%, to get "on board".

massive sting operation takes down organised crime across multiple countries.

Quote:
Operation Ironside was formed three years ago as a collaboration between the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to bring down underworld figures.

Hundreds of alleged offenders were tricked into communicating via AN0M, an encrypted app designed by police.

More than 100 members of Australia’s mafia and bikie underworld were arrested as part of the nation’s largest ever crime sting after they were allegedly caught using the app to plan executions, drug imports and launder money.

Hundreds more were nabbed by police in Europe and the US as authorities conducted sweeping raids across the globe.

The AFP said it had busted 21 murder plots, stopped more than 3000kg of drugs from hitting the streets and seized $35 million in cash.

So, I assume this announcement means that the strategy they've been using has been busted. Spin is an interesting thing, isn't it? Compare with "We used to have this thing we did that served a very useful purpose - but we've been sprung and we can't do it anymore. We're desperately trying to work out what we should try next." That wouldn't make for quite as good a miniseries.

That's one assumption that could be made, another is that they decided to pull the plug before it got busted.

The Herald Sun had the story before anyone else this morning, they way I read it was they had periodically tipped off local Police to some things and managed some preventative stuff but they held off on big ticket busts until now when they jumped on a whole swag of crooks all at the same time.

So what they were able to do was gather a whole lot of evidence to arrest a whole lot of alleged bad guys and seriously disrupt a whole lot more.

edit, in fact:

Quote:
They had limited time to run the app
Given the operation was so successful, questions were raised over why its use wasn't continued.

Commissioner Kershaw was asked why police were revealing the operation now. Here's what he said:

"Part of it has to do with legal authorities.

"And also, just the scale and the speed of the organised crime and the threats to life and the harm that was being done, it was an operational decision made jointly with all the international partners, including the Europol Operation Taskforce run out of The Hague.

"...there was a legal time frame on this operation."

What Anglophilic garbage, as ever at the expense of Ireland, still being spouted by backward imperial twats:

Quote:
Nevertheless, why did the Prime Minister not anticipate that the EU would attempt to use the protocol to add friction to life after Brexit? Right from the beginning of the negotiations, the bloc’s negotiators used every trick at their disposal to try to make sure that Britain was seen to get a bad deal, or ‘punishment beatings’ as Johnson put it. It should have been obvious that the Northern Ireland protocol, too, would be used to try to make life awkward for the UK — under the auspices of preserving the integrity of the single market.

https://www.spectator.com.au/2021/06/meat-of-the-matter/

There is no other deal, you tool. Of course no one wants it; it's a completely irrational impost which came about through that great act of national self-harm, Brexit, leaving no other choice.

The EU gets to wield its own laws and you wanted out: actions-consequences-responsibility. In case you haven't worked this out yet, the pitiful rump of Great Britain doesn't determine Ireland's future anymore like it's 1799.

And you've got years of recovery left to even start paying for that harm, so rebound growth isn't fooling anyone.

The actual agreement as opposed to the old imperialist delusions: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2021/jun/10/boris-johnson-must-respect-rule-of-law-implement-brexit-deal-eu
