Independents’ day: seat swaps that could turn the next election


Former Labor MP-turned-independent Frances Bedford could turn the next state election on its head as she considers a tilt at the Marshall Government’s most marginal seat.

Bedford told InDaily she would consider her options after a recent electoral boundary redistribution shifted a significant chunk of her Florey electorate – which she retained as an independent after serving there as a Labor MP since 1997 – into neighbouring Newland.

Newland is held by Liberal Richard Harvey with a slim nominal margin of 0.2 per cent following the redistribution.

It comes as another independent MP – former Weatherill Government minister Geoff Brock – prepares to fight for his political future against Energy and Mining Minister dan van Holst Pellekaan, who has confirmed he will recontest his Port Augusta-based seat of Stuart.

But the redraw has also shifted Brock’s electoral heartland of Port Pirie from Frome to Stuart, with Brock confirming: “I’ve got to go where Port Pirie is, and that’s in the new Stuart.”

In a week in which Liberals Stephan Knoll and Peter Treloar declared they would pull the pin at the 2022 poll, Liberal state director Sascha Meldrum has confirmed that the party’s 22 other lower house incumbents have nominated unopposed for their existing seats – including van Holst Pellekaan in Stuart.

Brock said van Holst Pellekaan came to see him yesterday after putting in his nomination “and let me know he’d done that”.

“We’ve been friends for years so it was good of him to come,” he said.

“I’m disappointed Port Augusta has been split into two electorates – that’s an utter disgrace, irrespective of politics… going forward Upper Spencer Gulf will only have two representatives in state parliament – I personally think it’s a kick in the rear end, essentially for the powerhouse [region] of the state, where everything’s going to be produced in the next four or five years.”

If Brock is successful, however, it would merely retain the status quo in terms of seats – but Bedford’s prospective move could effectively snatch the Liberals’ most vulnerable seat, while also gifting Labor her current seat of Florey.

If no other seats changed hands, that would give the Liberals 23 seats to Labor’s 20, with four independents – effectively creating a hung parliament.

The redistribution has moved Modbury – for whose hospital Bedford has spent years campaigning – from Florey to Newland, while bringing other Labor areas such as Mawson Lakes and Parafield into her existing seat.

“We’re had a brief look at it,” she told InDaily.

“I don’t know yet [what I’ll do] – there’s a lot to consider… I feel really close to the people who elected me last time but Mawson Lakes and Parafield are quite a way from my white-ant infested home – and quite a way from Modbury Hospital.”

Asked if that meant she was minded to contest Newland instead, she said: “Not necessarily, but it’s a fact I suppose.”

“I haven’t given it a lot of thought… but it’s a long way away and that’s a huge problem in itself.”

She said it would “probably be more of a challenge to run in new ‘new Florey’”, which party sources have linked with Meagan Spencer, a staffer to Right-faction senator Don Farrell.

However, it could also provide an avenue for federal MP for Spence Nick Champion to make his expected shift to state parliament, which was thwarted when the boundaries commission changed its mind about shifting the boundaries in Schubert, which would have seen current Light MP Tony Piccolo vacate his seat to contest the Barossa Liberal stronghold instead.

Champion’s name has also been linked to the northern suburbs seat of Taylor, but incumbent Jon Gee told InDaily he intended to run there again.

It’s understood Labor will soon confirm a candidate for Newland, with the party’s former MP for the seat Tom Kenyon endorsing his former staffer Lucas Jones.

“I’m absolutely convinced that Lucas is the best chance of winning that seat and I’ll be doing everything I can to help him,” he said.

InDaily however understands that senior figures have ruled Jones out for the north-eastern electorate.

Of Bedford’s prospects in his former seat, Kenyon said: “I’ve always thought that an independent would have a good chance in Newland [and] by taking a marginal seat she’d deal herself a better hand in terms of negotiations in the event of a hung parliament.”

However, others in the party said Bedford would be “crazy” to consider leaving Florey.

“It’s not like I’m desperate for a role in public office,” she said.

“I feel beholden to the people who elected me last time – the great people of ‘New Florey’ – and Ingle Farm and Pooraka.

“It’s really hard for people who follow their MP to have to go through this every four years, so it’s going to be a hard decision any way – but we still haven’t made up our mind.”

Former Adelaide United star – and current administrator – Bruce Djite appears unlikely to contest Labor-held Badcoe after an enticing two per cent margin in the draft boundaries report was bolstered beyond four per cent for incumbent Jayne Stinson in the final report.

Credit Suisse chairman hints at lower bonus payouts: newspaper

December 5, 2020

ZURICH (Reuters) – Credit Suisse will take into account the coronavirus pandemic when setting bonuses and the impact is likely to be negative, Chairman Urs Rohner told Schweiz am Wochenende in an interview published on Saturday.

“The pandemic is certainly a factor that will be taken into account when determining the variable compensation,” Rohner told the newspaper.

“Bonuses should reflect performance, and here the pandemic is a factor that plays a role,” he said. “It is obvious that after such a year you will not see record bonuses.”

The chairman, who is leaving Switzerland’s second biggest bank next year after a 12-year term on the board, said the company would have to wait for the 2020 business results before making final decisions.

Rohner will be replaced by outgoing Lloyds Bank Chief Executive António Horta-Osório.

He declined to comment directly on the rumoured merger talks between Credit Suisse and cross-town rival UBS.

Both Rohner and UBS Chairman Axel Weber were reported to support a deal, but talks dropped off after the summer.

“I am not saying that the idea is absurd, quite the opposite,” Rohner said in the interview. “Every chairman, if he understands his role correctly, will think through such a constellation as well as other scenarios from time to time.

“I have done so several times,” he said, although mergers between big banks tended to be very complex and had to deal with regulatory, cultural and timing issues.

“Such factors determine whether a merged company is successful or not,” Rohner said.

US State Department ends five cultural exchange programs with China — RT World News



The US State Department has axed five exchange programs with Beijing branding them as instruments of propaganda as relations between the states continues to deteriorate.

The cancelled programs are the Policymakers Educational China Trip Program, the US-China Friendship Program, the US-China Leadership Exchange Program, the US-China Transpacific Exchange Program, and the Hong Kong Educational and Cultural Program.  

These “one-way” programs were funded and run by Beijing as “soft power propaganda tools,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement. 

They provide carefully curated access to Chinese Communist Party officials, not to the Chinese people, who do not enjoy freedoms of speech and assembly.

The affected programs were ostensibly set up to foster bilateral ties and better understanding between Beijing and Washington.

For example, the Policymakers Educational China Trip Program is operated by the US-China Policy Foundation that was launched in 1995. It allows for short tours of US officials across China in order to provide them with “firsthand insight into the significant issues” between the states, according to the program’s website.

In August 2019, a group of American congressional staffers visited Beijing, Shanghai and Kunming, the capital of the southwestern Yunnan province, where they met with various Chinese state officials, diplomats and academics, and did some sightseeing. A similar trip was conducted in April 2019, when a US delegation visited Beijing and the Hainan Island in the South China Sea.

No more time to sell TikTok’s US assets as deadline for Chinese owner passes – report


The relations between China and the US have deteriorated significantly during the Donald Trump administration as the nations clashed over tariffs, military posturing in the South China Sea, and Washington’s open support for the anti-government protests in Hong Kong.

The US also accused Beijing of using Chinese-owned telecoms companies, such as Huawei, to spy on Americans. The White House has taken steps to push Huawei out of the US market and has been pressuring its European allies to do the same. In a similar fashion, Trump threatened to ban Chinese-owned TikTok video-sharing app and instant messaging app WeChat unless their ownership model is changed in the US. Beijing, for its part, has repeatedly denied it was using telecoms companies for illegal surveillance and espionage.

Campaign aide for Sen. Kelly Loeffler, 20, dies in fiery three-car crash


A 20-year-old campaign staffer for Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler has died in a fiery, multi-car crash on Friday. 

Harrison Deal, a young aide for Loeffler and former intern for GOP Sen. David Perdue, died Friday morning after a three-vehicle car wreck along Interstate 16. 

WBTV reports that three vehicles caught fire during the crash at 10am, and three people were treated for minor injuries at the scene.

The incident happened near the city of Pooler, just outside of Savannah, where Vice President Mike Pence campaigned with Loeffler and Perdue that afternoon.

It’s unclear if Deal, from Bulloch County, had been performing campaign duties at the time. The cause of the crash is under investigation. 

Photos shared by WJCL showed the mangled vehicles.  

Loeffler canceled plans to join Pence at the rally ahead of the contentious Georgia Senate race as a result of the tragedy. 

Loeffler, Perdue and Gov. Brian Kemp, who was also close with the young aide, all paid tribute to Deal.. 

‘It is with an extremely heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Harrison Deal. My heart aches for his family, and Jeff and I will continue to surround them in love and prayer in the days ahead. Harrison was a beloved member of our campaign team,’ Loeffler wrote on Twitter. 

‘More importantly, Harrison was a smart, bright, loving, loyal and outstanding young man. Harrison embodied the very best of this campaign – and the very best of our state.’

Perdue revealed that he and his wife, Bonnie, were ‘devastated’ by the news.

‘Harrison was a smart, kind young man with a bright future ahead of him, and he is gone too soon,’ he wrote.

 ‘We are praying for his parents, Curt and Jenni Deal, and his sisters, Hannah and Halli. I ask the people of Georgia to join us in keeping the entire Deal family in their hearts on this terrible day.’

Gov. Kemp issued an official statement after news of Deal’s death spread, sharing a Christmas photo his family and the aide.

‘Today, we lost a member of our ‘Kemp Strong’ family and words cannot express how much Harrison Deal’s life, love, and support meant to us,’ wrote the Kemp family.

‘He was a person of deep faith, unmatched integrity, and incredible kindness. Harrison was the Kemp son and brother we never had. Our prayers are with the Deal Family – and countless others – as they mourn the tragic loss of Harrison.

‘He brought people together and made everyone feel important and special.’

Just three days before his death, Deal shared a photo of him and Kemp to Facebook where he lauded the governor.

‘I will never be ashamed of this man. To have known him personally for the past two years, I can assure you the information currently being spread about him is completely false. He is the furthest thing from a corrupt man,’ wrote Deal.

‘He will always stand up for what’s right and what’s in the best interest for the people of Georgia.

‘Mr. Brian is first off a dad and a husband to one of my favorite families. I will always be willing to fight for each one of them.’

Harrison appeared close with the Kemp family. He was pictured with Georgia First Lady Marty Kemp and her two daughters, Amy and Lucy, supporting Loeffler for Senate in a July photo.

Deal was set to graduate from University of Georgia in 2022.

His unexpected death comes as Loeffler and Perdue prepare for a January 4 runoff race against Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively.

The election’s outcome will decide whether the Democrats or Republicans will control the Senate next year. 

Republicans currently hold 50 seats in January, but if Loeffler and Perdue lose the Senate will divided 50-50. In that case, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will make a tie breaker.

Loeffler and Perdue prepare for a January 4 runoff race against Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectivley.

Trump has tweeted in support of Perdue and Loeffler, but has spent more energy falsely suggesting that Kemp and Raffensperger have the legal authority to reverse President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in Georgia. State law gives them no such option.

On Friday, Trump’s campaign filed lawsuit in Georgia that called for a new statewide presidential election and furthered allegations of voter fraud. 

Initial returns showed Biden with a lead of more than 14,000 votes out of about 5 million cast. An initial hand recount put Biden’s margin at about 12,500. As Pence arrived in the state, Georgia officials were in the final stages of a third count requested by Trump’s campaign.

That leaves Republicans in Washington and Georgia concerned that Trump will use a Saturday rally in Valdosta, Georgia, to air his own grievances and conspiracies rather than stoke GOP enthusiasm about the runoffs.

‘They are hyper aware of Trump’s latest comments and latest tweets and the negative impact it could be having,’ said Republican donor Dan Eberhart of the senators’ advisers. ‘And those folks go to bed every night hoping there’s no Trump tweet while they sleep.’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany dismissed such concerns but embraced the idea that Trump can make or break the runoffs for Republicans.

‘The president’s presence in Georgia will push Sens. Loeffler and Perdue over the finish line,’ she said Friday, crediting the president with Republican turnout that narrowed House Democrats’ majority and delivered victories for several vulnerable Senate Republicans.

Two dead after drowning at Teewah Beach, near Noosa on the Sunshine Coast



Two men in their mid-30s have drowned at a beach north of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast this afternoon.

Paramedics pulled the swimmers from Teewah Beach after 3:00pm and performed CPR on both patients but neither could be saved.

Three rescue helicopters and multiple emergency response vehicles were sent to the beach, which paramedics said was difficult to access.

A nine-year-old boy was airlifted to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

Emergency crews are still at the scene.

A fourth person who swam out to try and rescue the swimmers was also treated at the scene but no longer requires assistance.

Queensland Ambulance Service spokesperson Michael Augustus said the beach was difficult to access.

“… We were also provided assistance from other people such as [National Park] rangers and Surf Life Saving Queensland so we were able to get people on the scene rather quickly,” he said.

More to come.

India accuses Trudeau of encouraging ‘extremist activities’ with his remarks on farmers’ protests


India has accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of inciting “extremist activities” and warns that his remarks about farmers’ protests could harm relations between the two countries.

In a statement issued by the office of India’s minister of external affairs today, the Indian government said the Canadian high commissioner was summoned and told that comments by Trudeau, some of his cabinet ministers and MPs raising concerns about New Delhi’s response to protesting Indian farmers “constitute an unacceptable interference in our internal affairs.”

“Such actions, if continued, would have a seriously damaging impact on ties between India and Canada,” the statement reads.

“These comments have encouraged gatherings of extremist activities in front of our High Commission and consulates in Canada that raise issues of safety and security. We expect the Canadian government to ensure the fullest security of Indian diplomatic personnel and its political leaders to refrain from pronouncements that legitimize extremist activism.”

Farmers are protesting new laws imposed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who says the changes will allow farmers to set their own prices and sell their crops to private businesses. Until now, Indian farmers have sold their crops directly to the government at guaranteed prices.

Farmers clash with authorities

Farmers are worried the new law will leave them vulnerable to exploitation by corporations and could devastate them financially – especially during the global pandemic.

Indian authorities recently used water cannons, tear gas and batons to break up protests by activists who had set up blockades and were trying to enter Delhi. Some Canadian farmers have staged rallies and launched social media campaigns in solidarity with the Indian farmers.

Earlier this week, Trudeau called the Indian government’s response to the protests “concerning.”

“We believe in the importance of dialogue and that’s why we’ve reached out through multiple means directly to the Indian authorities to highlight our concerns,” the PM said.

His words drew a swift rebuke from an Indian foreign ministry spokesperson, who called his comments “ill-informed.”

During a news conference Friday, Trudeau was asked if he fears his comments have damaged Canada’s relationship with India.

“Canada will always stand up for the right of peaceful protest anywhere around the world and we’re pleased to see moves toward de-escalation and dialogue,” he said.

Amur Falcon: Chennai gets off the mark


In the last week of November, the bird of prey was sighted in one hotspot and two personal spaces in the metro

Achieving three-digit speeds, Nivar led pelagic birds inland. However, in Chennai, the toast of post-Nivar birding was not any pelagic bird, but the Amur Falcon.

Between November 26 and 27, three sightings of the Amur Falcon were recorded in Chennai. With that, the metro is off the mark, in terms of documented Amur Falcon sightings.

On November 26, 2020, Rama Neelamegam saw an adult female Amur Falcon from her home on De Silva Road in Mylapore. On November 27, Sundaravel Palanivelu also saw an adult female Amur Falcon from his gated community on Third Main Road in Kamakotti Nagar, Pallikaranai. Both managed to photograph the bird they saw. Besides, on November 27, Srinivas Daripineni sighted a juvenile Amur Falcon at the Adyar Estuary.

There is a reason to believe that Nivar nudged the Amur Falcon gently towards Chennai.

Previous documented sightings closest to the metro actually are from areas well beyond it.

“A few of my friends have seen the bird in Pulicat and near Sriperumbudur, but I have not seen it in and around Chennai,” says birder Gnanaskandan Kesavabharathi, who spearheaded an exercise by the Madras Naturalists Society in 2015-16 to create a raptor map for Chennai and surrounding areas.

With satellite tagging, Amur Falcon is “on a leash”, its movements tracked, as the bird migrates in thousands from its breeding grounds in south-eastern Siberia and northern China to South Africa, with an extended pit stop in the North-East, particularly Nagaland. And of course, with the same technology the bird’s reverse migration back to the Siberian-Chinese Far East had been studied equally well.

Both ways, the bird is believed to hitch its wagon to monsoonal tailwinds.

Satellite tagging creates a picture of not only their usual migratory pathways, but also the slight deviations from them, usually caused by weather systems. Sometimes, the birds just stay off the beaten track, for reasons that cannot be nailed easily. In both cases, these elegant birds of prey may find themselves unlikely pit-stops.

Besides technology, citizen birders map the Amur Falcon’s most-favoured stopovers on its migration route, as well as its adventitious detours.

Gnanaskandan points out that when these birds end their sojourn in Nagaland — which he calls the “hop-on point” on their migration route — “most of them catch the north-east wind current”.

When the journey has taken them to the west coast, they find many halting points.

“West coast is where they stop noticeably — they would be sighted in areas along the Maharashtra Coast. In North Karnataka, they can be spotted in places like Hubli. Only very few come down south,” says Gnanaskandan, adding with some of the birds being satellite-tagged, there is reason to believe that these birds “cut across Hyderabad.”

Gnanaskandan believes that with Nivar, some birds got forced out of their usual course, and hence the Chennai sightings.

However, that is not to say that these birds always require an adventitious event to elbow them off-course.

“Some Amur Falcons go all the way to Andamans from the North-East — they would be very few in number though. From Andamans, they would head to their destination in South Africa. There are a few records of Amur Falcons being sighted in the Andamans.

There are records of Amur Falcon sightings on ships too,” elaborates Gnanaskandan.

When they come in small numbers — twos and threes — they may be inclined to stay on at a place for a few days, says Ganaskandan, drawing attention to how a female Amur Falcon, four years ago, pitched tent in Pulicat for “three to four days”. There is photographic documentation of this sighting in eBird — one record is the entry dated November 6, 2016 of a female Amur Falcon being seen at Pulicat by birder Aravind Amirthraj.

Worn to a frazzle due to a cyclone, Amur Falcons can have an extended stopover, refuel, regain their energy and resume their journey.

Gnanaskandan points out that in December 2016, huge flocks of Amur Falcons were found in south Tamil Nadu — at Vijayanarayanam tank, close to Tirunelveli.

“My eBird listing shows close to 80 Amur Falcons on December 20, 2016. Around the same time, good sightings of the Amur Falcon were happening around Malampuzha dam in Kerala as well,” he says.

During that season, Amur Falcons were having an extended sojourn at Vijayanarayanam tank.

Says Gnanaskandan, “Till mid-January, 2017 the sightings were happening. To my knowledge, that is the biggest flock of Amur Falcons sighted in Tamil Nadu. It gave an opportunity for people in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka to see this beautiful bird of prey.”

Car number plates which are banned in UK as of 2020 – from the rude to the inappropriate


The latest round of banned number plates has been revealed.

Officials from the DVLA have combed through all possible letter and number combos with the new 20 and 70-plates in an attempt to stop any problem plates from hitting the roads.

Dozens have been stopped, including 20 HEL, PR20 ZZY and FF20 KER, as well as SC20 TUM and VA70 GNA.

The DVLA focuses on banning sequences that could be deemed racist or politically offensive.

Other registrations that got banned earlier this year include BU20 GER, A20 RSE and M20 RON.

Drugs-related plates GA20 NJA, SM20 ACK and HA20 SH also got pulled from circulation this year.

The DVLA hosts specialist meetings twice a year specifically to identify potentially offensive plates.



Some drivers are keen to sneak colourful messages onto their number plates

Controversial numbers including LE70 ZRR, PO2O FTR, DR70 UGS, TE70 ROR, JH20 HAD and GO70 WAR also got stopped.

A spokesman told The Mirror: “The vast majority of registration numbers are made available but the agency holds back any combinations that may cause offence, embarrassment, or are in poor taste.

“Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and there are over 50m registrations available on our website with almost endless possibilities of combinations to suit a person’s taste, interests and budget.”

The Swansea-based agency makes up to £160m a year from personalised registrations plate sale, Wales Online reports.

But the numbering system introduced in 2000 left roads bosses bamboozled last year when the 69 plate came out in September.

Dozens managed to slip the net with drivers managing to bag plates including ME69 LOL, ME69 GAG, ME69 PSE, LV69 JZZ, BG69 WLY, SX69 DNG, The Sun reports.

Here are some of the plates deemed by the DVLA unsuitable to be released this year:
