THE CONROY CON UNRAVELS

Just last week, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, mocked the Coalition's NBN plan for being initially 75 mbps slower than his own $40 billion NBN.


THE CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION...

The children of Whitlam’s education revolution that is, and those illiterate children are now teaching our illiterate children under the illiterate nonsense that is now Gillard’s ‘Education Revolution’.


OBAMA REFUSES TO SUGGEST IT'S TERRORISM

Well, well, well, Americans were asked not to jump to conclusions. Is the White House possibly black? Of course this is a terror attack and the only question is, committed by whom?


SAME SEX MARRIAGE OK WITH ME... but later

To be honest, same sex anything makes me wriggle a bit in my chair but I guess, over time, practicality has overtaken my bigotry, and here we are. But I still can't watch a gay Mardi Gras.



FAIR DINKUM "REFUGEES"

Vietnam refugees mostly arrived here in the proper way. A few came by boat and those who did were legitimate, had ID and required only a minimum of processing. Most are now good citizens, others are in Cabramatta dealing heroin... as are some Aussies.


ABBOTT CAN STOP THE BOATS...

He can’t tell you how just yet, but the Opposition’s lengthy and earnest talks with Indonesian officials (the results of which have never been disclosed) will almost certainly have settled on an agreed solution of sorts.


CAVIAR'S MOST RISKY RACE YET

To say she could possibly be denied her 25th straight win is heresy but I for one will be frightened to watch the best sprinter in the World race tomorrow.



A GOVT SUBSIDISED SCAM

I apologise in advance for the “f” word but there is no way to adequately describe the latest Gillard immigration “initiative” as anything other than one, huge, stupid fuckup!


BEHIND THE TAMIL INVASION

It was 4pm on a Friday late last month. Alex (we will call him that) sat in his car at the gate of a property north of Yarra Glen on the outskirts of Melbourne


FAIRFAX IN BED WITH LABOR... and without a condom

When did Fairfax lose its virginity to Labor? Some time back I guess and I didn’t realise it until I walked into the newsroom after Whitlam’s sacking and found everyone in tears chucking typewriters.



SPEED KILLS

Since yesterday, the Fairfax online news has been leading with various headline versions of, "Experts Agree: Liberal NBN plan a 'lemon'".


A SUCCULENT SINO SUCCESS?

There is no doubt the PM’s emulation of Whitlam’s long march to China will be a poll reviving success. The Coalition’s historic approach to communist China has always been by a slow boat.



CONROY'S NBN A DRUNKEN THOUGHT BUBBLE

When you think of something terrific to do when you’re pissed, don’t pretend it’s just as terrific when you’re sober.


SHOULD ROLF HARRIS BE NAMED?

Rolf Harris is a strange man who spent time at my home but it was inconceivable that he could ever be arrested and bailed on child sex matters. Rolf was firmly embedded in the category of cuddly koala bears and kangaroos but rumours of a nasty pastime had been festering for decades
