If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.


Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


One hesitates to call the President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs, a liar but she leaves you little room to call her anything else. Her appalling display when chairing an inquiry into child detention on Christmas Island last Friday left Scott Morrison nonplussed and viewers of A-Pac Channel reaching for bricks.

“I’m a lawyer”, she screeched when asked to withdraw a claim that there were armed guards at the children’s detention centre. She refused, and continued to make ridiculous assertions that there wasn’t a blade of grass to be seen, that children were diseased, suicidal and Ill-cared for without decent medical facilities.

Having recently visited the site Ms Triggs was knowingly telling bald faced lies and was determined to mislead the Press who were eager to report her “opinions”, rather than those of Minister Morrison.

Such blatant dishonesty can be expected of Sarah Hanson-Young, but not from a Human Rights Commissioner. 

Ms Triggs, a confessed Lefty, was appointed to the position of President of the Human Rights Commission in 2007 and up until 2013 had ample opportunity to criticise the sparse facilities afforded more than twice the number of children detained under Labor. She chose not to. 

Yet conditions at Christmas Island under Morrison are first class and above anything available to residents on the island. “Children have a fenced pool and access to swimming lessons, schooling, Tai Chi/Yoga, they participate in community sporting events, have a Persian band, disco, movie nights, picnics and many other activities, all supervised”, according to our Christmas Island contact. 

“They have the best of medical care and are immediately flown to the mainland if specialist care is needed, I wish we had the same services ourselves”, he said.

“I find it most distressing that her professional ethics have resulted in the detainees being used as pawns for her political agenda.” 

Perhaps Ms Triggs might reflect on the care she afforded her own child, Victoria, who she describes as, "being profoundly retarded as anyone who is still alive can be". 

Triggs told the Melbourne Age, "Her condition usually results in death shortly after birth. In fact, the doctors kept saying to me, 'just leave her in the corner and she'll die.’ I know it sounds terrible, but I'd look at Victoria and think, 'Well, you're going to die, so I'm not going to invest too much in you.’”

But Victoria didn't die so, at six months of age, an impatient Triggs, found a family prepared to look after her. The family gave her the primary care she so desperately needed before she died seven years ago at the age of 21. 

Now there’s a CV befitting a Commissioner for Human Rights.

Resign now Ms Trigg’s and stop degrading your commission and your adopted country. You are truly an obnoxious disgrace.


Victoria poor child, was given defective genes from her alcoholic mother.

How the HELL did She get to be President of the Australian Human Rights Commission???

Just goes to show you what kind of person Ms Trigg's really is re her daughter

I reckon a "Gillian Triggs; Fire, Exit ,Dismiss, Sack" Facebook Page would be a real hit. 'Gillian Triggs FEDS'

A cancer of the position and office. Lying traitor. She would make a nice Partner for Christine Milne, what a wedding photo.

Ditto to Bloody Amazed.

Never thought of that. Good point. The other Dame Cow is related to Bull Shitten.

The same CV befits the insidious and obnoxious Labor party, who would rape Australia to serve their own lust for power and the opportunity to get their grubby paws on our tax money again. Every Labor and Greens MP deserves to be exposed for the frauds they are.

Thank you Jack. I will e-mail her the link to this site and any uncomplimentary sites.

So that poor tossed out Victoria Triggs(?) has her 10th anniversary of her death this year. Perhaps all the kind people could send this cold hearted bitch a card for her to remember what Human Rights are about.

I am not an admirer of Tania Plibersek but compare her attitude to her own children and husband in parliament yesterday to this disgraceful excuse for a mother. Trigg is totally unsuitable for public office. She discarded her own child 21 years ago and now seeks to use detention children for her own political views. She should resign or be sacked.

AS the mother of 2 and grandmother of 6 I can only say, what a total and utter cow.

Anyone notice the similarities here and so many others of the left? Their bitterness and misery seem to be such a bad effect , that they need to vent their anger on the rest of the world...The rest of the world did not cause their problems , but as the saying goes..."Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" Seems many find a place with the left to blame the rest of the world for their misery.

True MC, the question is does the external ugliness work it's way inward or does the ugly inner soul manifest itself externally?

Yeah MC, reckon the two could pass for sisters just as ugly as each other.

How could anyone who can afford to keep a child hand their child over to someone else Lucky the kid passed on. Image that thing as your mum.

Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the cold hearted bitch of all.

Yeh Missionchris, why do people stand up for filth like this. Or even want to be aligned with them. Beats me.

What a cold hearted bitch. This women has been caught out lying many times. Maybe she should just go sit in a corner and do us all a favour?

She is simply a cold hearted sociopath who is more interested in her own career than her family. She could not care for her own flesh and blood as disabled as the child was and yet will take the opportunity to highlight the coalition success as a failure and failed in her duty to highlight the failures of the Labor policy which resulted in hundreds of deaths. She is a disgrace to human rights.
