Not a fan
Couple of songs are ok but generally it doesn’t speak to me at all

My issue is that I find it hard to understand the popularity outside of African American populations - to me its a cultural expression and the idea of people from outside of that demographic becoming so into it is… I don’t know… poseur…(look it up lol)

but each their own…

@Tiger_Steve said in FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA CONCERT:

I’m a real Queen fan - love their music. Sad to see Roger Taylor with a second drummer last night. He’s older and bigger - hard to belt out the massive sound that is Queen on drums as he gets older. True legend, as is Brian May. And Deakin and Freddie

I was at the concert on Saturday night and the other guy was introduced as the percussionist

Regardless, best concert I’ve seen for many years, since the time I saw them with Freddie In sydney in 1985!!

He’s like a crappier version of Kurt Gidley

Man that is bad because i always thought Gidley was rubbish.

I never knew the wraps Matt Gidley got either, both brothers were average first graders IMO.

And this is why I think Andrew John’s is the best player of the last 25 years Newcastle was a team almost full of Nuffie’s and when he played he made them look like super stars I was talking with Anthony Tupou one day and he said John’s was the hardest player to play against John’s would be on the defensive side and calling out what the opposition was going to do two or three plays in front and same with attacking raids and that’s why when he was injured they had almost nothing

So true. it takes a real footballer to know a footballer. Regardless of personal likes or dislikes Joey is the best most complete Footballer I have seen in the last 40 years.

Oh well, they still have QANTAS.

By all reports the little leprechaun is finishing up soon so he leaves a nice little mess to clean up…

I think the relationship is even bigger than Joyce, predating his appointment. But that’s not to say it has been all whisky n clovers 😏

true… in a way. Professionally I have some experience with both bodies and tbh Joyce has virtually been running RA in many ways…

Who’s the new ceo?

Still Joyce but he has privately and publicly indicated he is staying on only until Qantas’ centenary celebrations in November 2020.

I thought you were better than that Geo.

As of July 2019, the Global Coal Plant Tracker shows:

Within the 28 European Union countries, there are 268 coal-fired power plants in operation, with 7 in construction and 8 in pre-construction.
Turkey has 29 plants in operation, with 2 in construction and 31 in preconstruction.
South Africa has 19 plants in operation, with 2 in construction and 5 in preconstruction.
India has 291 plants in operation, with 33 in construction and 41 in preconstruction.
Philippines has 21 plants in operation, with 8 in construction and 19 in preconstruction.
South Korea has 24 plants in operation, with 3 in construction and 1 in preconstruction.
Japan has 83 plants in operation, with 15 in construction and 5 in preconstruction.
China has 1032 plants in operation, with 126 in construction and 76 in preconstruction.
Australia has 20 plants in operation, with 0 in construction and 2 in preconstruction.

https://factcheck.afp.com/these-figures-number-active-coal-fired-power-plants-select-countries-are-inaccurate

The numbers quoted by Geo’s post aren’t accurate but IMHO the sentiment is valid - we need to be a PART of the solution but we aren’t the solution when the issue is a truly global one. When China,India and the US reduce emissions we all win, regardless of whether Aus does a thing or not to reduce our 1% carbon footprint.
