Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Seems a bit harsh

The ShadowLands has not always been fully supportive of the policies of the Australian PM, Kevin Rudd, but even we were surprised at the harshness of this headline currently on the home page of the Sydney Morning Herald.

Good header and well spotted Margos maid.

The thing is..... how do you spin something like this to the public?

Will he say it was a friendly BBQ on board that went horribly wrong?

The spin will be spun

It takes 19 hours for the Rudder to (re)surface and this is all he can come up with?
Perhaps, he should be re-christened as 'bilge pump'?

Habib has left a great comment on the source of ignition at Timbo. What I want to know is this - if they used petrol to blow the boat up (on a boat with a diesel engine), why was their petrol on board in the first place?

It's got premeditation written all over it.

"Scum of the Earth" - cabin attendants/people smugglers, eh Kev; all 'in the same boat'?

Habib nails it of course:

The failure of the left to believe that the Bangladeshi used car salesmen destroy their own boat on purpose is ridiculous - it's exactly what they did in kid's overboard and on several other occasions.

Habib bloody well ought to have a blog, BTW.
