Dyson Heydon’s refusal to be bullied or intimidated by union thugs and his intention to stick with the Royal Commission gig triggered the usual twitter finger-wagging from the extreme Greens.
If Dyson Heydon stands down he will have given credence and legitimacy to the worst Labor and its moribund unions can offer and he will have tainted his own reports... he will have agreed that there was a perception that he was biased. But whose perception was that?
The Australian Republican Movement chairman Peter ‘Fitzy’ FitzSimons assures us that his preferred model for a republic means "nothing will change". That raises the obvious question, “If nothing will change, then why change?”
An estimated 70,000 people who have overstayed their visas are virtually impossible to locate because of stretched resources according to the AFP. The number has dramatically increased from a reported 62,000 five years ago.
Labor and corrupt unions’ favourite corrupt law firm, Slater & Gordon, is under an ongoing ASIC investigation concerning a, a’hem, “book-keeping error” totalling $90 million.
Commissioner Heydon would not have spent more than a week preparing legal argument if he intended standing down. No, if he intended to depart there would be no legal argument required, he would just shoot through to a well-earned break in autumnal Tuscany or maybe Province.

Most people (except those at the ABC and Fairfax of course) are slapping their foreheads in disbelief at how Shorten can possibly outpoll Abbott. Shorten as PM is the stuff of nightmares and horror movies and if it ever happened I’m out of here and off to New Zealand. Hang on, hang on, I take that back... better make that Afghanistan.
Watching the Dow in a one thousand-point freefall last night was more an indication of why China’s confused mix of Communism and Capitalism must eventually fail.
I feel a little bit sick this morning because I believe I have finally worked out what Gillard, Macklin and their rabid Left sisterhood were up to promoting late-term abortions. It was a major plank in the hideous policies of Gillard’s Socialist Forum. But why? Why wouldn't a woman opt for a six week abortion of an unwanted baby?
Dear Jimmy, Hi how are you? Er, you probably have never heard of me, but of course I’ve heard of you, rock legend and all that. We do have a few things in common mind you. We both came from the UK (other side of the border) and settled in this great country.
