Being a Good MP

My recipe for being a good member of parliament: Understand that your position is as a representative for the Australian People, with a focus on your local constituency. Leave your biases at the door; this includes personal feelings and religious leanings (or lack there of). Surround yourself with people who have differing opinions. With each… Continue reading Being a Good MP

Black Friday 2019

I say F*CK OFF to all of these businesses who are having Black Friday sales that read like “15% OFF EVERYTHING*” then have in much smaller letters… “Exclusions apply” That’s not EVERYTHING numbnuts! Further it seems that the big camera retailers are doing this, both Teds and Digidirect, and BOTH are excluding the majority of… Continue reading Black Friday 2019

Morrison is Deluded

Our Prime Minister… the leader of the party that leads our country (through a coalition and some tenuous favour-found friends).. says we mustn’t be instilling anxiety into our children over climate change. Taking a swipe at Greta Thunberg and the massive global school strike.  He says he doesn’t have deep conversations about emissions reductions with… Continue reading Morrison is Deluded

Being pre-retirement the, somewhat liveable, old-age pension isn’t an… Continue reading Newstart is a lie

Get Off the Rock!

Uluru is a sacred site to Aboriginal Australians. They have ALWAYS, in my living memory, been requesting that people respect their beliefs and choose not to climb the monolith.

A Little Goes a Long Way

I think it’s weird we all run from the notion of socialism, but we are a democratic-socialist nation. Health care Education Roads Social Security Government Parks Services All paid for via taxation, as a society we pay for these. In addition to this: Medical Research Science Research Telephony/Communications Power Banking Public transport All often originate… Continue reading A Little Goes a Long Way

Folau Fail

There was a time when Israel Folau was quite happy to support equality and to “tackle homophobia” in sport. He was a proud supporter of the Bingham Cup*. But in recent times he has been quite aggressive in his proselytising and claiming that homosexuals and other enemies of his god are destined for hell. Good… Continue reading Folau Fail
