Rudyard Kipling is one of the best known of the late Victorian poets and storytellers. He received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1907. Yet even with such high honour, many detractors neglected his work shortly after his death due to his unpopular political views.
There is nothing worse than the sight of a grown man crying. We aren’t robots of course and sometimes we just have no choice. Like most of my gender however, I make every effort to shut myself somewhere out of sight or sound of anyone else before allowing myself to break down.
Our mate, Larry Pickering remained stoic and cheeky to the end. His indomitable, larrikin spirit never left him. Just last week when the docs told his wife, Carol, to let Larry have anything he wanted, he lit up with that irrepressibly irreverent grin. "Really? Anything? Can I have two sheilas, love?"
Dear Mr Morrison, Can you please help to get my Dad out of jail again. He keeps getting into trouble with the mozzie man who moved in next door. (He calls them mozzies ‘cos he says they sneak up and bite you when you’re not looking.)
Dear Pickering Posters, Larry has asked me to give another update on his condition. Up until now, he hasn’t wanted to say too much as he hates to burden others with his problems.
A new lobby group comprising scientists, farmers, consumers, small business and big business is urging both sides of Australian politics to put aside party interests and global agendas to focus on what's best for Australian business, workers, consumers and the environment.
It was reported yesterday (10/11/18) that Labor MP Anne Aly was highly critical of the Prime Minister for how he handled the terror attack in, where else but, Labor’s Victoria.
I’m sitting here, in the comfort of my old age and my beloved Australia, thinking about all the awful tragedies going on around the word, and now more and more often, also in Australia.
As many of you have probably guessed, Larry is not feeling too well of late. He has however finally seen a doctor, much to his disgust, and is back at home recuperating. He continues to defy the medical profession with a constitution that Rasputin would have been proud of.
Another one dead, two horrifically injured and with psychological damage they will take to the grave. How many more have to die before the penny drops?
Administrative agencies of the American Federal Government since the passage of the 14th Amendment, have excluded foreigners and their children by race, creed, and color. As an example, that includes the total abolition of Chinese (The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882) and Japanese (Asian Exclusion Act of 1924) from becoming United States citizens.
As I’m sure you are all aware by now, Tommy Robinson is planning to tour Australia. He has a promoter, venues, dates, everything……….except a visa.
The GOP might lose the House but as long as they win the Senate they have the advantage, long-term. Only the Senate nominates and confirms judges so for the next few generations the Supreme Court will adhere to the Constitution and not invent crazy new laws the Dems demand.
The last time I was in England, I lined up a meeting with Tommy Robinson, but fate, as usual, was against me. Every time there is an Islamic inspired outrage in England, Tommy rushes off to cover it. Not surprisingly, he does a lot of rushing about these days.
Sky News’ pundits, radio and Press are still reciting “disunity is death” while they pore over Wentworth’s entrails. Well, I used to live in Wentworth, and I can tell you Saturday’s result had nothing to do with “disunity”.
As said here often, it is easier to bring a Party to its knees from the inside, and it has become the new normal in Australian and indeed world politics. Julia Gillard had been well-schooled in communist political tactics when she swore to infiltrate the Labor Party with the help of some of Australia’s best known communists.
