A Bigger Picture - Malcolm Turnbull - Hardback $5.69 + Delivery ($0 with Prime & Min $49 Spend) @ Amazon US via AU

981

This is selling for $30+ in stores so $9.85 is a great price. The price for the paperback is $34.99 from Amazon as well so not sure why the hardback is so much cheaper. Well and truly the lowest price ever for the hardback.

No matter which way your politics go, it's always interesting to read a book from the perspective of the highest office in the land.

In saying that I'm sure this will be subjected to partisan comments and negs.

Edit 930pm: Down to $9.78 from $9.85
Edit 8.53am 15/07: Down to $9.60
Edit 9.04am 17/07: Down to $5.69 (thanks daveozsydney)

                    @1st-Amendment:

                    Oh man, you live in one of the most peaceful and prosperous nation in all of human history and you think you are in the gulag. This is truly the age of entitlement…

                    Those that do not stand up for what is right, prevent progress from taking place. We NEED accountability in democracy. No one should turn a blind eye to corruption or selective funding. Politicians can't pick and choose with the media and public on their tail in a representative democracy.

                      @Techie4066: What a privileged life you must have that the very worst it gets for you is that a politician said something you didn't agree with on TV. Oh the humanity…

                        @1st-Amendment: No one said anyone needs privilege to hold people to account. No one said the need for accountability diminishes quality of life. Accountability is not even a matter of disagreement - it's founded upon morals, the law, and meeting obligations to the constituents who elected you. You must like the gaslighter in chief too much because you mimick his tactics well.

                        And it's their actions, not their words, which are worth responding to. How are you able to turn a blind eye to the vested interests in funneling billions of dollars into lobby groups, or the rorts, or the scandals, or overspending on land, or causing environmental disasters (Murray Darling fish kill), despite knowledge about it?

    This book is not free delivery with prime.
    This book is only free delivery for for order of $49 or more.

    •  

      Yes the title says that, the mods even adjusted it slightly as they do for every other Amazon US via Amazon AU deal that is under $49.

      •  

        I believe the '($0 with Prime/ $49 Spend)' refers to free if you have prime membership or if you spend $49. This is how that tag is usually used for other prime deals where it is free delivery for even a $5 item if you have Prime.
        In this case, it is not free even if you have prime.
        Can i suggest that the title be changed to ($0 with Prime and $49 Spend) to clarify the difference?

        •  

          That is for domestic deals but with a $39 spend, not $49.

          I think you're right though. My original post did say exactly as you say (check revision history), however the mods changed it, I think they made a mistake. Will change it back.

    The book should be renamed “A Bigger Loser”. Political arguments aside, I have never seen a retired politician hell bent on a personal vendetta against members of his own party, undermining them at every opportunity. His latest effort was trying to persuade key OECD members not to appoint Matthias Cormann as the new Secretary-General. Even if you think every politician is an a-hole, what Malcolm Turnbull did sets a new low in politics. Hell hath no fury like Malcolm Turnbull scorned…

      What is pretty is the Liberals not endorsing Kevin Rudd's bid to be the director of the UN.

      What is pretty is Morrison making 55 calls to get his mate Cormann elected as Secretary General and not even calling the Head of Pfizer to get more vaccines for us.

      Pfizer specifically asked to speak to Rudd (a PM from 8 years ago) vs the current pack of inept and corrupt Liberal nutjobs.

      What does that tell you?

      We are going through lockdown after lockdown due to Morrison's incompetence.

          Of course all negotiations can only happen between the federal government and Pfizer.

          The issue is we have the worst vaccination rate of the OECD countries globally which is squarely on Morrison.

          The article you included even says that business leaders are so concerned with the state of the vaccination program that they sought out Rudd to get involved.

          From your article: "The former prime minister sought the meeting with the company at the urging of senior Australian business leaders, who were "deeply concerned by the government's failure to lobby Pfizer at its most senior levels".

          It says to me that this federal Liberal government is so inept that business leaders had to contact a Labor PM from 8 years ago to try and sort out the mess and avoid future Morrison lockdowns.

          •  

            @arcticmonkey: Lockdowns are ordered at the State level not Federal, but sure, it's all the PM's fault.

            Also maybe compare how the UK is going with the highest vaccine rates in the world. They are still getting 20000 cases a day. By objective standards we are doing much better than most other countries.

        I did say political arguments aside… and don’t get me started on that babyface silver hair idiot who thinks he can look more credible with facial hair. At least I’m willing to concede Malcolm Turnbull is a self-made millionaire. The other guy married up…

      what they both have in common is AFTER they got rich they decided to see a bigger picture, but both party machines are rotten to the core and american owned.

      without a genuine australian big picture media this will never even remotely change. Getting factual news and big picture views is currently impossible in australia, and it has to be said very difficult in many other countries.

      the internet makes that very obvious because you have to use a vpn to even search for bloody news now…

      •  

        What websites are you using for news that you need to use a VPN for?

          its faster than changing google, cuz google au since it took the coalition deal (money) is shit.

            @petry: Ok then, what countries do you VPN to so that you can get access to news that you can't access from here without a VPN?

            •  

              @b2dz: you are still confusing access with searching….. google is a search engine - its country defined

              •  

                @petry: You said:

                … because you have to use a vpn to even search for bloody news now…

                So I am asking, which countries are you terminating your VPN against so that you can search (and access) news that you otherwise would not be able to search and access from Australia?

                Edit: and can you give a couple of examples of news that you cannot search and access from Australia as well? I'd be interested to see if I have a similar experience from my end without a VPN.

                •  

                  @b2dz: mostly european and canada - although some stories that appear require their origin countries as termination points for fact checking.

                  •  

                    @petry: Can you provide examples of news sites that don't appear in results if not using a VPN?

                    •  

                      @b2dz: why not go see for yourself - pick a few international stories that interest you over a week - and see the reality for yourself..

                      •  

                        @petry: I do - I read Al Jazeera and BBC regularly. I haven't noticed their results not showing up in search nor had any access issues without a VPN.

                        So I was hoping you could save me the hassle of trying multiple news sites and just provide the examples that you were referencing in your original post.

                        •  

                          @b2dz: jazeera left factual news about 18 months to 2 years ago when american threats were made.

                          the bbc is propaganda and has been for at least 10 years.

                          •  

                            @petry: OK, great. So can you please provide your examples about which news sites don't show up in search engines or are not accessible without a VPN?

                              @b2dz: its not the sites, its the story, the data etc. oz gets fed a limited number of stories and opinions. you can search google.au and get virtually nothing until you change google location. even newspapers use geo filters.

                                @petry: Google search now censors everything. Lots of articles, websites, videos won't even appear in the search. At the same time a lot of one-sided stuff is being pushed.
                                The only way to find some objective and more independent info is by using https://duckduckgo.com/ search engine.

                                  @bob19: yeah but some people really don't want others to know.

                                  Its bad enough in Oz with the media controlled by a handful but when google ramps up its censorship as a consequence of the recent deal struck with the federal government its time to bring it up again.

                                  google has censored for a long time but this has increased of late quite alarmingly, and that is now a very serious issue.

    When he was PM nothing good or bad happened. Because he wrongly assumed staying in that post is his greatest achievement. But there were a lot of PMs before him and there will be a lot of them in the future. But people will remember only a few. Definitely, Malcolm Trumble is not one of them.
