A Letter To Pauline Hanson

from Paul Zanetti

Dear Pauline, Many Australians admire you because you say what they think. You raise issues other politicians are too afraid to confront. You voice the concerns of hundreds of thousands of citizens in uncertain times.


Yassmin Abdel-Magied's extraordinary claim!

There’s been a lot of open discussion this week about Islam being ‘the most feminist of all religions’, according to the taxpayer funded Islamic activist, Yassmin Abdel-Magied. To understand Islam and its treatment of women, one needs only to source the founder of the faith.


First up, a couple of quick questions. Does anyone else remember the promises made by Pauline Hanson prior to the July 2 (2016) election? What were the one or two issues that re-branded and re-launched Hanson’s political career? I’d have to nominate ‘Ban Halal’ and ’Stop Muslim immigration’.

Mufti’s Past About To Return To Haunt Him

...and it's all his own doing!

When you choose to sue someone - or an organisation - be very sure you know what you’re doing. Defamation law in Australia can be tricky. A false move, misjudgement, forgetful memory or sloppy lawyer could lose you your house. Plenty have been rendered homeless through ego driven legal cases based on nothing more than bluff and wind.


The Incredible Transformation Of Stan

Stan came from an ethnic minority community. He says he faced racism. So did I. As have millions of others. Stan faced racism as a white man with aboriginal background. I faced it as a wog dago. My surname was a curse, in that it made me a target in the 1970s. I wasn’t ashamed of my surname, but was called all sort of names I can’t repeat here.

Dutton Plays The GetUp! Rentacrowds Off A Break

IMMIGRATION Minister Dutton showed why he’s considered one of the best government performers with his announcement ‘Baby Asha’ will be moved to an onshore community detention centre.

Salim Mehajer Broke Australia's No 1 Cardinal Rule


AUBURN deputy mayor Salim Mehajer can’t blame anyone but himself for the slow motion earthbound trajectory he’s found himself on. Sydney’s most newsworthy councillor committed the Australian cardinal sin.

Australians ‘Wrong’ On Islam - Liberal MP

DON'T you hate it when you’ve accidentally joined the wrong party, stood for pre-selection, got yourself voted in, then look around and find you’ve got almost nothing in common with your parliamentary colleagues?


Why Tony and Cate are an item

MUTUAL self interest often makes for odd bedfellows. Relationships are formed for reasons not seemingly apparent to the casual observer. This past week we saw the consummation of an old relationship, in full bloom in one of our daily metro newspapers.

Sending Children Back To Nauru Is Humane and Right

The high court’s ruling, upholding Australia’s offshore processing system, is not only the right one on legal grounds, it’s also profoundly humane. No more deaths at sea and no more children ripped from their mother’s arms, sinking to the bottom of a cold, dark cruel sea, ending their short innocent lives

Would You Buy A Used Republic From This Man?

HAVE I got a Republic for YOU. Don’t think you need a Republic? Think again! But you’ll have to be quick! I’ll even throw in a set of free steak knives. That’s the dodgy used car spiel being spruiked this time around to pressure YOU into buying a clapped out ‘Republic’ model.


SADLY the Australian Of The Year award has lost all meaning to millions of Australians. It’s become a disconnected politically correct tool existing only for one purpose - to advance progressive grand standers and social causes, instead of reflecting the best in quiet achievers, the real heroes of our country.
