The loss of moral authority

It is interesting to note the Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane, Mark Coleridge, admonishing the Queensland Premier and Deputy Premier for promoting legislation decriminalising late-term abortions. Both of Queensland’s parliamentary leaders are women and both are apparently believers in Catholicism. Going for the jugular, Archbishop Coleridge said such legislation would make Queensland like Nazi Germany. More […]

A fabulous interview with Cory Bernardi

Sir, some are calling you Sinator given your crimes against the Liberal Party and humanity. How do you respond Well, Jesus too, was castigated by people who did not understand his true glory. You compare yourself to the Messiah I answer to many names. I use this title not for any personal self-aggrandisement and only […]

A fine mess

Queensland stands ready to adopt a new marketing slogan for its vehicle number plates: The Fraudulent State. It’s a consequence of citizens engaging in a massive fraud scheme where they default on payment of fines imposed for driving offences and unpaid tolls. The current total of fines outstanding to the wonderfully-named State Penalty Enforcement Registry […]

Grace lacking in God’s waiting room

Okay, so most of us hate performance reviews. The research is pretty conclusive. But we also say that we value regular feedback on how we are travelling at work. It’s a conundrum. But imagine if you were part of a large work group whose boss went public to denounce your collective behaviours in damning terms. […]

A pox on passwords

You know what I’m afraid of: that when I get to heaven, I’ll be asked for my password before I can login. And there ain’t no way in hell I’ll have a clue what that bloody password is supposed to be. Now, set aside the notion that I believe in a life hereafter coz I […]

A funny approach to terrorism

Ya gotta love government. Well, not really coz they do some stupid things – supposedly on our behalf and for our betterment but they always involve spending our tax dollars. The Australian government is as bad as anywhere else (if not worse!) and a media release issued by our Attorney-General recently reinforced my cynicism. It […]

Mutually Assured Destruction

Nuclear weapons have exerted great influence over our way of life throughout the past seven decades. They have been a saviour but they also hold us all hostage. Unleashing atomic bombs to end the Second World War was a frightening gamble. It largely delivered us the socio-political and economic world we know today. But it […]

True greenies woud kill themselves

Okay, so that’s a provocative way to start a topic. Admittedly, there’s a lot of tongue-in-cheek involved but there remains a very serious issue at the heart of it. The inescapable fact is that every human being leaves a footprint on Earth. Some seem wilfully profligate and appear not to care how much damage they […]

Falling down in the credibility stakes

My, my! Unsteadiness continues to sweep the Ministerial ranks of Queensland’s new LNP government. Arts Minister, Ros Bates, has had a first six months in office that makes Christchurch seem like the Rock of Gibraltar. The dreadfully unfortunate Ms Bates appears more accident-prone in real life than in her portrayal of a Cabinet Minister. Coz […]

So, Wayne, you want class warfare?

Australia’s Wayne Swan – allegedly the world’s best treasurer – has dived headlong into the trenches for a bout of knuckle-dragging class warfare. In an attempt to salvage the Australian Labor Party’s trashed brand he has singled out a trio of domestic billionaires to open-up the politics of envy and bitterness. You silly, misguided man, […]
