Federal Election result poses major headaches for South Australia Labor Party
11/9/2013 | 9:56
ADELAIDE voters have taken baseball bats to federal Labor and put the party's last mainland state government on notice ahead of a final showdown looming in March. A Labor Party that had control of every state, and the federal government, in 2007 now faces a wipe-out within six months as South Australia and Tasmania head to the polls on March 15. Premier Jay Weatherill and his ministers are clearly fighting against the tide. Labor's brand is on the nose across the country, including SA, and Mr Weatherill is hauling behind him all the baggage ...

South Australia has swung 5.4 per cent to the Coalition, the second largest state swing in the nation, in a national rebuke of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's divided government.

Nguyen quickly rising as one of Adelaide`s most common surnames
IN ADELAIDE, it seems the Nguyens are now fast catching up - rather than just keeping up - with the Joneses, the Williams and the Smiths.

Ten years ago, the surname, used, according to some estimates, by 40 per cent of Vietnamese, didn't even rank in the top 40. University ...

Adelaide described as a vibrant city in Lonely Planet guide
THE Lonely Planet guide once described Adelaide as painfully short on charisma; a pious, introspective space bogged down in old-school doldrums. Until now. The latest "Central Australia: Adelaide to Darwin Travel Guid e" publication states that although the city's stuffy, affluent origins did more to inhibit development than promote it, things have changed in Adelaide. In its most recent review, the acclaimed travel guide says the city has its guard down and its boardshorts up. The guide's sixth edition portrays a multicultural, flavour-infused CBD ...

Refugee advocate and Liberal candidate for Adelaide Carmen Garcia has criticised Kevin Rudd’s Papua New Guinea asylum seeker resettlement policy – which her party supports – saying Australia is dodging its responsibility on asylum seekers. Asked yesterday whether she supported mandatory resettlement in PNG for asylum seekers who arrive in Australia by boat and are found to be genuine refugees, Garcia said “I think it’s handballing our responsibilities.” “I think it’s really unfair that a country like PNG that has its own social development ...
