A bank robber can be reformed to re-enter society as a decent citizen. A “correctional” centre can never “correct” a paedophile. No jail sentence can reform him, change him or help him and it’s a shame that judges and parole boards still don’t understand the difference between the two.
Unaccustomed as I am to conspiratorial theorems, here goes... Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 flew for over four hours after its last point of contact and that creates a credible scenario if, as reported in the Malaysian Press, an Aircraft Worthiness Directive (an AD) was current for the Boeing 777.
The verdict was predictable and based on a (denied) confession. But for me, and probably the jury, Cowan was guilty the moment he led police to the site of Daniel’s remains after nine years’ fruitless searching. This bastard was the only person in the world who could do that.
I’m no Tony Abbott fan, but fair dinkum, any sane observer would be entitled to think that what he has achieved in six months with a hostile Senate is nothing short of extraordinary.

[The following is a report from pickeringpost.com 14 months ago.] An alarming report in the Mail On-line has accused Lord Justice George Fulford, (pictured) adviser to the Queen, of being a key backer of the outrageous “Paedophile Information Exchange” group known as PIE.
The Climate Change Authority wants Australians to cut their production of carbon dioxide to 19% below 2000 levels by the year 2020.
Last year, Air New Zealand was ranked the second-safest airline in the world by the Germany-based Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre, or JACDEC. Obviously I figured QANTAS would be ranked first, but no, bloody Finnair was ranked first. WTF? So where’s QANTAS? Even Dustin Hoffman knows QANTAS is the safest airline in the world!
Fair dinkum, I need a round of golf. It’s just too depressing to peruse the endless accounts of child sex abuse that pollute my computer... the faltering email words, the trembling, barely audible phone voices of those struggling with shattered lives.
Graeme Paul Hancock, 31, had just been released from prison where he had served five years for the sexual assault, including rape, of three children aged five, seven and nine.
If anyone starts a digital diatribe with, “In my day...”, we draw the shutters because, on the whole, we have benefited much from the modern information revolution.
