Shutterstock. Friendship is an incomparable, immeasurable boon to me, and a source of life — not metaphorically but literally. -Simone Weil. About eight years ago, I went to dinner with a dear friend I had known for more than 40 years. It would be the last time we would see each other and by the end of that evening I was deeply shaken. But more lasting and more unsettling than this has been the feeling of loss without his friendship. It was a sudden ending but it was also an ending that lasted for me well beyond that evening. I have worried since then at what kind of friend I am to my friends, and why a friendship can suddenly self-destruct while others can so unexpectedly bloom. My friend and I were used to going to dinner together, though i.

The extra 24 cents per day can buy an extra 36 peanuts per day, more if you buy in bulk. Shutterstock. Newstart recipients and other Australians on benefits get their half-yearly pay rise today (and also on March 20). This one is vanishingly small.

That’s $1.65 per week, less than 24 cents per day. It’s enough to buy about 36 peanuts – or more if you buy them in bulk. More galling still for Australians on Newstart, age and disability pensions will increase by twice as much - $6.80 per fortnight, an increase the government was keener to highlight than the increase in Newstart.

John Howard is remembered by his Liberal tribe as a reformer, but his legacy is mixed. The GST has endured but he essentially doomed his government when he let his ideological obsession with industrial relations run away with him. The Liberals lost the next election, and had to stand by as Labor dismantled WorkChoices. Now a subsequent Liberal government is starting on workplace change, with industrial relations minister Christian Porter on Thursday releasing the first discussion papers. It’s early days and in politics sheep can always put on wolves’ clothing. But on what we see, the measured approach of Scott Morrison and Porter is a far cry from that of Howard and likely to be more successful and lasting. That’s not to ignore the governme.
