It was almost certainly going to be ok!
The Bourne Ultimatum anticipation, picture, news, and information thread!
My old friends were going to be safe! And indeed they were - what followed was a very funny and very sympathetic reproduction of the antics of the inhabitants of German occupied Nouvion. The audience really should have been given complimentary cheese as we took our seats! I watched and listened and laughed at the accents, and the preposterous plans, and the old familiar jokes, waiting for the catch phrases, knowing they were coming and laughing with childlike glee when they were spoken.
It was almost impossible to distinguish him from the real thing!
Not everything ran smoothly of course. One or two accents slipped towards the end of the play, and a couple of lines were stumbled over, and occasionally the timing was a little bit out, but overall this was a very enjoyable funny show.
Experienced, really nice, patient and friendly
Allo Allo fans would not be disappointed in it. The play follows the experiences of four waitresses one night in the local trendy cocktail bar, their customers range from the laddish lads out on the pull, through the shop girls out to celebrate a birthday; on to the local business men and minor celebrities out for cocktails and a meal after work.
Whatever their background, they are all drunk to a degree, their behaviour towards the waitresses lewd, and rude and condescending. Relationships are tested and tempers fray as the evening wears on, but each waitress has a story of her own to tell. It has a cast of just four: but a character list of dozens. Four actresses play all the parts and do much of the scenery moves. So it was hardly surprising to find a certain quiet panic in the theatre before the curtain went up — they had just an hour earlier received the news that one of the actresses was unable to go on! Cast and crew decided to go ahead with a stand in — a brave decision especially for producer Amy Harris who agreed step up to the role — an experienced behind the scenes contributor to Westovian productions, she is not usually found on stage.
It was a big ask, but the alternative was to cancel the show and send away those bold souls who had bested the weather to attend! Clearly, the show had to go on. And it did indeed go ahead. They brought to life the extremes of life in a s wine bar — the tedium, the leery customers, the sore feet, the irate chef, the patronising clientele. They seemingly effortlessly swapped identities, between customers and waitresses. This one works!

A small tweak to the waitress costume identifies the different customers types — adding a pair of sunglasses here, a fur coat or a briefcase there, a party hat or my favourite a bow tie transformed into a moustache. Most of these changes are made on stage, so that the audience feel they are being included in the joke, and it ensures that the action flows smoothly.
Much as I loved the waitresses, for me the supermarket checkout girls celebrating a birthday were the best part of the play. Anyone who has ever had tried on clothes in a Top Shop changing room, or cried drunkenly over a man in the ladies loo in a nightclub will identify with them! This is a funny, sad, hopeful play — the girls are in a dead end job but they each have their dreams, and there is the hope that they will achieve them. Instead of welfare clients being assimilated into the mainstream, the mainstream must be educated to celebrate the difference and diversity of the welfare clients, and pay compensation to the welfare industry for victimisations, real and imagined.
The university graduates seek to increase their herds of taxpayer funded welfare clients, people are money.

When the rudd family can make hundred[s] of millions from the welfare industry in a couple of decades,this shows us that the welfare industry is as capable of generating super profits as gold prospectors or oil wildcatters—with less risk and hardship involved. For those awaiting a decision on their case for refugee status in the community either on a bridging visa or in Community Detention , the Government also provides a range of supports through NGOs such as the Australian Red Cross. This includes access to health care and other social services.
Financial assistance is also provided but this is paid at a lower rate than that available to Australian residents. For example, those on bridging visas receive 89 per cent of a payment known as Special Benefit and 89 per cent of Rent Assistance. The only incentive that matters to unauthorised arrivals is whether they have a chance of arriving in Australia and receiving PR, at some point.
That is why people are prepared to wait for years in Nauru, and years more on the mainland. Getting rid of welfare for PRs and making citizenship a much longer process would collect a higher level of welfare savings for less outlay. Yes it is an issue, because that quote of yours has nothing to do with permanent humanitarian visa holders. It is discussing a completely separate category of people on bridging visas.

Yes, but that is never going to happen. So the only options available to libertarians are either to support the government, or to support the Rudd-Gillard Border Chaos policy. It is a factor that impacts our ability to help those in need, and creates animosity towards useful migration and integration.
Also, the only reason we would even be discussing punitive measures like removing welfare for non-citizens and making it harder to obtain citizenship, is if we are looking for reasons to abolish Operation Sovereign Borders. If a future Labor government seek to return to the Rudd-Gillard Border Chaos policy, will libertarians fully oppose them, or not?
You missed the point Fisk. Again, the issue is not attracting either low quality migrants or economic migrants seeking welfare. HIA cleared on three counts — age, hair colour and time of day. Especially at the end of the day.
Also, the only reason we would even be discussing punitive measures like removing welfare for non-citizens and making it harder to obtain citizenship. The actual problem is that you are still looking for reasons to abolish the very cheap border protection regime of patrols and boat turnbacks. You have not once stated clearly that the LDP will unequivocally support the cheapest part of the border protection regime so as to preclude any future concerns about welfare, appeals and so on. Because all of these things are moot if people are unable to access Australian jurisdiction.

Question: will the LDP, under any circumstances, ever support a future government abolishing our inexpensive architecture of border patrols and turn-backs that we currently have? Firstly, the cost of directing aid to Cambodia for the latest relocation scheme. Secondly, the costs of RAN assets and personnel. A vast amount of this cost would be incurred as training exercises anyway if OSB. A gun. Which fires pieces of spud.
