G20 Summit

Russian oligarch Vladimir Putin got up Australia's nose at the G20 summit by turning up with a flotilla of warships and almost everyone else's nose by ignoring complaints about his stoking up the war in Ukraine; but he took a photo op. to cuddle a koala with PM Tony Abbot to show what a nice guy he really is. The koala he's holding looks as nervous as hell. Frozen out, the oligarch caught his jet home for a kip, leaving the rest of the G20 leaders looking smug and promising a 2.1% increase in economic growth regardless of whether the planet can sustain it (CLICK). Climate change? What climate change? Is such growth even possible, what with earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, droughts, floods and mad Muslims trying to start World War 3?
