Monday, June 18 in the news....

  • Hamas has said it will not recognise the emergency government due to be sworn in by Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, later today. The Islamist movement refused to be drawn on whether it would recognise the government once all their masks were removed.

  • The Federal Government is injecting an extra $300 million into subsidies to help get broadband into the bush as it lays out a plan to deliver high-speed internet to the rest of Australia. Before it does this though it will spend over $200 million teaching folks in the outback what a computer does.
