A case of wrong place at the wrong time, we were there a month ago, just shows how life involves a lot of luck.

Paris: French police have arrested a man who targeted passersby in Paris, killing a German tourist with a knife and injuring two others, France’s interior minister said.

Police subdued the man, a 25-year-old French citizen who had spent four years in prison for a violent offence.
After his arrest, he expressed anguish about Muslims dying, notably in the Palestinian territories, and claimed that France was an accomplice, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said.
The attacker apparently cried “Allahu Akbar [God is great]”, Darmanin added.

“This person was ready to kill others,” he said.
The attacker went after a German couple with a knife, killing the man. He then used a hammer to injure two others.
The attacker, who was not identified by name, left prison after four years in 2020 and was under surveillance and undergoing psychiatric treatment, the minister said, painting a brief portrait of the assailant, who was born in Neuilly-Sur-Seine, a Paris suburb.

I've got a feeling we're going to see an increase in this crap.

What, before or after the last election?

For me the writing was well and truly on the wall, before the last election, he should have handed over to Josh IMO.
Should have realised he was on the nose with the hand shaking episode wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy back then.

I've always thought he did a good job with covid, he as a person was never my cup of tea, but IMO probably the right personality for a crisis like Covid and shutting down the Country.

Obstinate, arrogant, thick skinned, quick thinking, excellent memory and not phased by the media, without those unattractive traits, he would have been torn to shreds by the press.
With him being calm and having the answers, when questioned on every aspect of the covid pandemic, it instilled calm in the general public, throughout the incident IMO.

He was never popular with the media, also Australians aren't overly religious, so being strongly opinionated and religious is never going to sit well with the Australian public.
As I've said before I try to cancel all the white noise and just judge on the job at hand, not what the media or rusted on disciples think or say.

So IMO he wont be missed, but neither was Turnbull, Abbott, Gillard and Rudd, it has been a long time since Australia has had a statesman. :2twocents

Good on you SP. From all my friends and colleagues you are probably his biggest fan and some of them are Liberal party members.
