Singapore will decriminalise sex between men

Published

on

Singapore will officially decriminalise sex between men, repealing a long-standing law banning the act.

Speaking at his national day rally speech, Prime Minister Lee Hsien says the move represents a change in societal values, as residents become more accepting of gay people.

Singapore is the latest in a string of Asian nations which has pushed to end discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community.

In 2018, India’s high court scrapped a gay sex ban and Thailand is getting closer to legalising same-sex marriage.

Although it’s not actively enforced, under Singapore’s current laws, offenders can be jailed for up to two years for engaging in gay sex.

But it’s not all good news for Queer advocates, with the Prime minister also outlining his plans to further strengthen the definition of marriage to prevent same-sex unions.

What Australia can learn from NZ’s supermarket inquiry

Published

on

Coles and Woolworths, two of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, are about to face a Senate inquiry that aims to scrutinise their market dominance and business practices.

The inquiry’s parallels with a past New Zealand investigation highlight the growing concern over the duopoly’s impact on consumers and smaller businesses.

The Senate inquiry, set to begin next month, comes as a response to mounting public pressure and allegations of anti-competitive behavior in the grocery sector.

New Zealand example

Similar concerns led New Zealand to conduct its own inquiry into the supermarket industry back in 2019, resulting in recommendations for increased regulation and transparency.

The central question here is whether Coles and Woolworths wield too much power in the Australian market, potentially stifling competition and limiting choices for consumers.

With the New Zealand example as a cautionary tale, many are wondering if this inquiry will result in meaningful changes to the Australian grocery landscape.

The unexpected comment from the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has ignited a new wave of discussion within the political sphere, leaving many wondering about the implications for Haley’s political future.

In a tweet that garnered significant attention, Musk criticized Haley’s recent policy stance, writing, “Nikki Haley’s campaign is dead on arrival if she continues to ignore the urgency of climate change.

We need leaders who prioritize the planet’s future.” The tech mogul’s remarks come as Haley, a prominent Republican figure, has been exploring the possibility of running for president in the upcoming election cycle.

Musk’s statement has reignited the debate over climate change within the Republican Party, with many conservatives emphasizing economic interests over environmental concerns.

This raises questions about whether Musk’s endorsement or critique could influence the GOP’s stance on climate issues and potentially impact the 2024 presidential race.
