Eat beef, save the planet

Ian Plimer The Spectator Australia 13 August 2022 Yet again, farmers are under attack.

The Albanese Amendment ensures a voice will be a disaster

Janet Albrechtsen The Australian August 13, 2022 At a philosophical and principled level, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voice is illiberal, divisive and inequitable. It creates permanent race-based privilege and turns Australia into a constitutionally endorsed two-tier society. Now that the Prime Minister has revealed the words proposed to be inserted into the ConstitutionContinue reading “The Albanese Amendment ensures a voice will be a disaster”

Labor PMs in search of their own ‘Whitlam moment’ do us all a disservice

Jacinta Nampijinpa Price The Australian August 13, 2022 Every Labor prime minister after Gough Whitlam wanted their very own “Whitlam moment”. When I see the photo of Whitlam towering over Vincent Lingiari, pouring sand into his hands, I think of what the sand symbolises.

Kevin Donnelly The Australian August 6, 2022

After reading The Official Politically Correct Dictionary and Guide in the early 1990s, I never realised how infectious, dangerous and widespread political correctness would become. Most of the examples back then were humorous and appeared far-fetched with constructs such as vertically challenged instead of small and chemically inconvenienced for being drunk. Fast forward to moreContinue reading “Kevin Donnelly The Australian August 6, 2022”

Our political class is ridiculous – and terrifying
