Real compassion: a border protection policy that works

Apparently, there’s no compassion in a border protection policy that works. But there is more compassion in a failed joke of a policy that saw our nation’s borders left wide open while over 1000 people died while scrambling across the sea to get in. The Fairfax and ABC journalists are frothing at the mouth about compassion in every second article. But it is just a meaningless word. The fact is this: they want...

The Chief of Army’s speech writer’s preoccupation with the toilet

In January this year, the Australian Women’s Weekly ran a story with Lieutenant Colonel McGregor. This officer appeared, in uniform, in yet another publication supporting the ADF’s decision to allow its soldiers to frolic among the flowers in the transgender field. Predictably, the ABC also loves Lieutenant Colonel McGregor.  McGregor will star again tonight. This time, the Prime Minister will introduce him. I say him...

The ABC of cars

Australians have more access to news, views and entertainment than ever before. So let’s cut to chase.

Some jokers are real

“Daddy, why is that Army man wearing lipstick?” It’s the kind of question that every parent dreads from their children. It’s impossible to give any positive, truthful explanation for such a ridiculous situation. So it’s best to try and avoid circumstances that may lead to these awkward but innocent inquires in the first place. Consequently, when the ABC decided to televise an interview with a cross-dressing Army officer wearing makeup...

Tasmania kicks marriage equality in the balls

Tasmanians should take some time out this week and celebrate their ability to think clearly. This is a big statement, especially when one remembers that Tasmania is the homeland of Bob Brown. However, considering the strong, loud and clear rejection of gay marriage made by Tasmanian voters over the weekend, I guess some latitude can be made. Every society has its fair share of loonies. Supposedly, the weekend election in Tasmania was...
