Victoria's Shadow Treasurer David Davis and the Liberal Party say Victoria's debt is larger than Queensland, NSW and Tasmania combined. RMIT ABC Fact Check runs the numbers. The verdictMr Davis's claim is gilding the lily. So are similar claims from Mr Guy, Mr Bach and the Liberal Party organisation.It's important to note that Victoria's net debt in June 2022 was $99.98 billion.It is not yet the $165.9 billion it is projected to be in June 2026, despite Liberal Party claims it has already "blown out" to similar magnitudes and Mr Davis's claim that it will reach that level by 2025.
Actually wanted to set an example with the Arm Bind. The World Cup host country Qatar is, for example, because of the suppression of homosexuals and women. After the World Association FIFA had announced sanctions, the associations withdrew their plans on Monday, which caused broad criticism.
Now the DFB even loses a sponsor prematurely. "The scandalous attitude of the FIFA is absolutely not acceptable for me as a CEO of a diverse company and as a football fan," said Rewe boss Lionel Souque. The supermarket chain therefore waives its advertising rights from the existing contract with the DFB. The main thing in the context of the ongoing World Cup.

According to the current decision of FIFA, the group is now suspending the contract. The company had already told the DFB. The DFB initially did not respond to Rewe's decision.
The current World Cup is a difficult terrain for the football sponsors. Critics accuse them of wanting to enrich themselves on the tournament despite the problematic human rights situation in the host country. Many European supporters of FIFA and the sponsors of the World Cup in Qatar therefore only promote cautiously.
Because many consumers are not in football fever in view of the energy crisis and the unusual orientation of the World Cup in winter, the trade does not promise a big business from the tournament. That is why there are no special campaigns and action goods for many dealers. Trading groups want to hand in a collecting album
at the end of October, at the request of the trading sheet at the end of October, that the World Cup "has a comparable less interest than earlier big tournaments". The focus is more on Christmas time. At least in Cologne, “positive radiation effects” were hoped for for the sale of drinks or snack items.
Why Kanye West’s career may be over
Kanye West has long been a lightning rod for controversy, but his most recent comments and actions have clearly gone too far. He’s alienated almost everyone at this point, and is running out of places to speak out (which is probably why he’s buying Parler). Unfortunately, the signs for this happening were always there, and after reading this lengthy list of Ye’s misdeeds, you’ll likely be “So Appalled.”

Diplomacy can moderate human suffering, but often only on the margins. Stepping too far in that direction can have substantial costs.And today, it’s no longer just pundits pushing for a negotiated settlement. The US House of Representatives’ progressive caucus penned a letter to President Joe Biden calling for a diplomatic solution, only to retract it a short time later. Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy has promised to scrutinise military aid to Ukraine and push for an end to the war. Even Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Mark Milley has reportedly pushed for Ukraine to negotiate, although he subsequently made clear that the decision should be Kyiv’s alone.
