    Poor old James, with Dossy and Millers now gone, the right can no longer form a circle, and need to be content splooging in straight line.

    Is there something you'd like to tell us about yourself bandy?

    Probably best to avoid Smack and Jimbo's constant attempts to derail the thread with off-topic ad hominem attacks.

    Did she call you the next day?

    If she didn't, don't take it to heart, she's over 70 and going a little senile TBH.

    So how did then 22-year-old Ngouth Oth Mai manage to buy a $1.5 million property in Melbourne upfront when he had only ever earned welfare payments and lived in housing commission?

    That is the question he must now answer in the County Court of Victoria, where the AFP launched civil action under the Proceeds of Crime Act (but not criminal charges).

    Ngouth Oth Mai is the son of James Hoth Mai, the former chief of staff to Sudan's People's Liberation Army (SPLA), who was sacked in 2014.

    According to The Sentry, an anti-corruption watchdog set up by actor George Clooney and activist John Prendergast, military generals in South Sudan earn up to $65,000 a year and the wealth amassed by some of them and their families is unexplained.

    The Mai family was on The Sentry's list.

    They discovered the luxury house in Narre Warren while investigating corruption in South Sudan for a report published in 2016, War Crimes Shouldn't Pay.

    This prompted the Australian Federal Police (AFP) to start an investigation.

    The ABC has seen the affidavit that outlines the AFP's case.

    22 year old immigrant amassed $1.5M in wealth in a few short years.

    Sounds like a good news story to me..........

    Living on $40 a day? Easy.

    A six pack of mainstream beer - $19.00

    A packet of Pall Mall 20s - $18.35

    A packet of Remano large pasta shells - $0.89 from Aldi

    A 1.25 L bottle of Woolies cola - $0.75

    A packet of Woolies pasta and sauce - $1.00

    Total - $39.99

    Easy.

    One of those items really stands out as being ridiculously expensive.

    Woolies Cola shouldn't be more then 50c....
