The trouble with Tony

In the lead-up to the 2013 election, the media went into overdrive about how Australians were faced with the grim possibility of voting in a Prime Minister who was a misogynistic, homophobic, anti-abortion, right-wing Neanderthal climate-denier. There was the mother-of-all-scare-campaigns designed to frighten people from giving the keys of The Lodge to a man framed as a fresh-faced graduate from the Inquisition’s darkest seminary....

A crisis of confidence

If you listened to Labor MP, Jackie Trad, and her smug commentary on Saturday night, you would think that Queensland voters are in love with the Labor Party. But she’s wrong. Queenslanders are not in love with the Labor Party. They did not run down to the ballot box jumping for joy at the prospect of electing a new Labor government that looks pretty much the same as the old one that they blasted out of office less than three years...

The failing front line in the war against ‘extreme’ Islam

On the one hand, a public servant might lose his head to a knife-wielding jihadi. And on the other hand, he could be labelled a racist bigot by Big Brother, lose his job and be cast out from society into the exterior darkness of wailing and gnashing teeth. Actually, to be truthful, they are both cards dealt in the same hand. It’s a hand called ‘being perceived to be the slightest, teeny-tiny bit concerned about Islam’. And all public...

The litany of stupidity

As police officers were carrying out the largest anti-terror raids in Australia’s history yesterday, I went out on a limb and made a really bold prediction: the next 24 hours would see all sorts of people in high places fall over themselves to absolve Islam of all responsibility. Actually, it wasn’t that bold at all. Blind Freddy could see it coming. In fact, this woeful prayer to Islam has been underway for quite some time. Exactly...

Dealing with the Islamic State

Everyone wants to do something about the Islamic State. But what? So far most of the action has amounted to a bunch of press conferences in which supposedly intelligent people drivel blather about the non-Islamic beliefs of those carving out the new Caliphate. For instance, Australia’s Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, has refused to call the Islamic State the Islamic State because he believes it is not Islamic or a state. So he referred...

A month of insanity

What a month. It has just been absurd and insane. And I’m not talking about the printing, signing, preparing, filing and posting of thousands of documents for my legal action against the Chief of Defence Force that has taken up an enormous chunk of time. Nor am I referring to the constant battle against the stream of complaints from a single homosexual activist in Sydney that keep finding their way to my Queensland address from the...

The Mother’s Day Massacre

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. And today is my birthday. This is a happy coincidence. It means, in our family, that we get to celebrate the mother and the father in the same weekend. It’s really the way it should be everywhere. Mums are important. And so are Dads. But they are much more important when viewed as a whole, not as separate parts. Families function when they are both together, working as a loving team. Yet our society...

Real compassion: a border protection policy that works

Apparently, there’s no compassion in a border protection policy that works. But there is more compassion in a failed joke of a policy that saw our nation’s borders left wide open while over 1000 people died while scrambling across the sea to get in. The Fairfax and ABC journalists are frothing at the mouth about compassion in every second article. But it is just a meaningless word. The fact is this: they want...

The Chief of Army’s speech writer’s preoccupation with the toilet

In January this year, the Australian Women’s Weekly ran a story with Lieutenant Colonel McGregor. This officer appeared, in uniform, in yet another publication supporting the ADF’s decision to allow its soldiers to frolic among the flowers in the transgender field. Predictably, the ABC also loves Lieutenant Colonel McGregor.  McGregor will star again tonight. This time, the Prime Minister will introduce him. I say him...

The Rainbow enters the Australian War Memorial

The Australian War Memorial has embraced the rainbow. Apparently uniformed ADF participation in the disgraceful and offensive Mardi Gras is now worthy of a place alongside galleries devoted to deeds of valour in Flanders, Tobruk and Vietnam. The names of those killed fighting for this country now share a space with tributes exalting those who prance down Oxford Street. It is an insult of immense magnitude. You can see the online...
