  • mick, surely refuting just one false claim of a mentally ill person would take less effort than your last post, especially for an intellectual giant such as yourself?

  • got better things to do then dally around with your mental illness, go and get a job, james w. Have you not got more important issues given the game is up for labor and the end is nigh.

  • mick, I'm still waiting for you to refute just one fact that I have posted here or at 4BC and you haven't been able to, in spite of you claiming all I have said are NOT facts. If they're not facts, it shouldn't take an intellectual giant such as yourself 5 years to refute my claims then, should it?

  • A good thing Roxon had the conviction to take on Big Tobacco, because smoking related illness is another cost centre in our Health budget that we could do without. Big Tobacco is another who's business model needs breaking.
