My Blog List

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.

ShadowLands' Public Policy Unit: a backgrounder

Hey, you think we do this blogging thing just for the fun of it? At the ShadowLands, we aim to change the world!

The ShadowLands' Public Policy Unit* is quickly gaining a reputation as having the most influential PPU of any blog, and that's not just because we can't think of any others.

Here are just a few recommendations from our Public Policy Unit, including submissions to:

* the Department of Climate Change (and a background story here).

* the Productivity Commission's inquiry into opening up the book market.

* Our submission to the Senate Select Committee on Climate Change, who ultimately agreed with our suggestion that the whole ETS thing could be at least be delayed.

* The ShadowLands Public Policy Unit is proudly funded by some shadowy multi-national organisations.

The DCC.

Do they have policy memos on what to set the aircon at? Meetings about tinting the windows? Is there a three sheets warning posted on the inside of the dunny door?

'Do they have policy memos on what to set the aircon at?'

Isn't the policy steering committee in its seventh sitting to issue a policy on this?

And by the way, they're fresh out of Iced Vovos ...

The Vovos aren't iced any more. Global warming took care of that.
