The list of participants should include US Big Business who have been consulted every step of the way. The only potential benefit for Australia appears to be in agricultural exports. the ruling coalition includes the National party dedicated to government of the people by the farmers for the farmers.

Welcome to Heathrow Terminal, er, Samsung Galaxy S5

World's Worst Terminal?

Captain Scott wrote "My god, this is a bloody awful place" about Antarctica because Heathrow and in particular Terminal 5 bad not been built then. Admittedly it comes as a shock to wind up there after departing Changi or Chep Lak Kok but the place has to be the pits by anyone's standards.

Samsung must have rocks in their corporate heads.

Nobody seems to have mentioned the ever increasing amount of advertising in facebook. This would have been the first thing I asked about had I been doing the research

Le Monde has the best web site of all the newspapers I read on line. Don't know about the rest of the French press but if Google is so concerned they might start their improvement plan elsewhere.

It's Stephen Conroy!

We ARE allowed to mention Senator Conroy's surname these days since he has nixed the Great Firewall of Oz.

More reasons to avoid Heathrow

I have given up on Heathrow. It is a place to avoid, horrendous taxes and fees, massive long hikes in that "bloody awful place" T5. The contrast with Singapore and Hong Kong where I usually transit it marked. Two of the world's best airports, one of the worst. Even the attitude of the security staff contrasts badly, not to mention the efficiency of border control.

Spend the money on recruiting humans in security and diverting excess traffic to other airports.

Is this system seriously expected to work? Decision making by committee.

Better Service

The service from the Dalai Lama is much better. He tweets on most days and the content is often quite thought provoking even for we atheists.
