What Went Right - 13 FEB 2017
Once again, three articles from the mainstream media about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".
Bankwest cuts negative gearing benefits from home loan assessments by Michael Janda (Business reporter, ABC Australia)
Bankwest has fallen into line with industry best practice, and is no longer using the consideration of tax concessions gained from negative gearing in order to determine whether or not a customer is able to service a loan.
Industry, environment, community groups demand bipartisan energy policy by Peta Donald (Political reporter, AM, ABC Australia)
An alliance of groups from the business, industrial, union, environmental, community and social services sectors have issued a call for Australian political leaders to cut out the partisan parliamentary antics, and get on with working together to create a bipartisan energy policy which will deliver reliable, affordable and clean energy.
Sailing legend Peter Mounsey shares sea tales at Australian Wooden Boat Festival by Ted O'Connor and Felicity Ogilvie (ABC Tasmania)
This article is a profile of Peter Mounsey, who has been fascinated with the sea ever since he served in the merchant navy during World War II. He's in his eighties, and doesn't appear to have slowed down at all, sailing from Sydney to Hobart in a small yacht to participate in the Australian Wooden Boat Festival.
So there's my three for today. If you've found any articles about what went right in your media feeds, why not share a link to them in the comments?
