Just in case, you know, there is an American citizen somewhere in the world who has managed not yet to see this ad. One way or another it is what most Australians think and fear for the USA and ourselves
Sir Roger has it on authority from multiple sources that the “Dead Cat on the Table” ploy most recently fed to and trotted out by Peter Dutton is the signature work of one Lynton Crosby. Goebbels was also a master propagandist. What? Sir Roger is in no way suggesting that Crosby is comparable to or correlated with the Nazi […]
“Soul murder” — not a phrase one comes across every day. By Luigi Novi / Wikimedia Commons, CC BY 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=7815388 Sir Roger was listening to the ABC Science Show today. It was Robyn Williams’ homage to Oliver Sacks (Awakenings, The Man Who Thought His Wife Was a Hat, Seeing Voices, Uncle Tungsten etc. etc. […]

Listen to Sir Roger’s podcast of this story! [Music:”Relent” by Kevin MacLeod at Incompetech.com (Creative Commons licence)] or listen on You-Beaut: Years ago in 2009 Sir Roger spake unto his readers about the standard, weaselly political responses to catastrophes. Sadly he has had too many opportunities to review his advice and now, once again, in the aftermath […]

Sir Roger is having a short break from the hard work of watching his serfs tiling the fields, shaving the sheep and milking the bulls or whatever they do. He has tried to fit in some self-improving rest and recreation activities (see photograph above) and has had some time to read. He read this […]
Sir Roger has been somewhat troubled of late that persons of his (ahem) “vintage” have become quite out of step with the young’uns these days. Not in terms of worldliness, because after all his generation have seen a lot more world (times Time), with all its available varieties of grief and joy, of wonder and […]
Special Intel Ops, Sir Roger is required to inform his readers, may actually AT THIS VERY MOMENT be taking place, or be in preparation, or at the very least in prospect. (Clutches pearls.) It has come to Sir Roger’s attention, or may have come to Sir Roger’s attention, or may in the future come to […]

Men and Whitlam of Australia… “The decision we will make on December 2 is a choice between the past and the future, between the habits and fears of the past and the demands and opportunities of the future. There are moments in history when the whole fate and future of nations can be decided […]
Sir Roger Migently, as you must surely realise, has been quite unwell. He has been managed like an unlucky skier in an induced coma these many months since September 2013, when the floor of the Migently Mansions entertainment complex collapsed beneath him and he landed heavily on his Conservatory, hitting his head repeatedly against the wall. […]

Sir Roger was contacted yesterday by an outfit called Bogan Recruitment. Or Hoban. Or something. “Lindsay” left a message because Sir Roger was attending a board meeting about protecting the Migently Millions and what to do about the servants. Lindsay wanted to have a chat about someone (let’s call her “Annabelle”) for whom Sir Roger […]

Feel free … No really. Pin it, fb it, tweet it, email it. With Sir Roger’s blessing. Just don’t join the liberal party really.
Just (sorry) Sir Roger thinks IT’S TIME to refer back to the recent squabble about certain t-shirts and heap some shit on those who assert ownership of the commonly used English phrase “It’s time”. Universities once, in all the centuries up to but not including this one, were laboratories for learning and thinking, experiencing […]

About 300 years ago, like a smouldering kapok pillow, a massive revolution began its slow burn. A scientific revolution. A social political revolution led by great minds. Newton, Spinoza, Locke, Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot, d’Alembert, Montesquieu. Hume. Robert Burns. Thomas Payne. The Age of Enlightenment surged on and rational, egalitarian thought swept everything from its path. Except religion, of course. You’ve got to give […]

Drawing by the extraordinary Doctor King . Men and Whitlam of Australia, not to forget the moron in a hurry, it’s time to bid farewell to old plinth-bound, red-taped Goth the Whittler, his soul, his vision and his legacy chained and frozen in stone within the walls of the Wiblam Edifice, protected by the Hooded […]
