Sometimes when I write
these essays (or whatever they are), I find it difficult to not type with my
fists as my rage is almost insuperable. This one hasn’t made it any easier. Our
feckless Prime Minister Scott Mutebutton (sorry, Freudian slip, I meant
Morrison) has again tried to reimagine history much like he did when trying to
cover up his urging of Cabinet to use community fear of Muslims for political

Everyone knows that the main reason the
fire seasons are getting longer is because of climate change, even the deniers. The 2008 Garnaut Climate Change

change on Australia and its economy, predicted that without adequate action,
the nation would face a more frequent and intense fire season by 20201.

If regional areas have had fireworks banned, then let’s not have two classes of
citizens. We’re all in this crisis together.” Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore was

Coalition attacks on women continue

The disgraceful Murdoch rag, Brisbane’s
Courier Mail has done an attempted character assassination of Queensland Premier
Annastacia Palaszczuk by printing a story about state Liberal National Party
Deb Frecklington’s attack on the premier. Frecklington undertook an interview
with Brisbane’s Sunday Mail, and seemed miffed that she had been mistaken for
Palaszczuk in public. She maintained that they are “such different people…she
