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 […]
Robert – a self-styled “foreigner” to our shores – is most upset to have been hoaxed by the false promise and dashed hopes of life in Australia. A few days ago Robert commented on an ancient post here at Values Australia and his comment was upsetting. Sir Roger cannot bear the thought of another’s pain […]

Today, just a day after the failure of industrial negotiations between itself and the Unions, and with people still furious only three weeks after CEO Joyce gave the finger to its entire customer base, the Prime Minister and Australia generally, the Qantas social media uber-geniuses began a twitter campaign with the hashtag #qantasluxury, asking […]

In the aftermath of his very public News of the World disgrace¹, as Rupert displays the abject decency and compassion he so miraculously discovered, today he has gone even further. Rupert Murdoch is determined to protect us from drivel, lies, bias, distortion and bullshit. He has today selflessly erected a paywall around his “flagship” […]

Sir Roger is really upset. He went on Skype today but there was no live sex waiting for him. Nothing from the Australian Defence Force Academy. No soldiers at all, actually. But surely everyone knows the rules, as the brass are now saying. If someone agrees to have sex privately they are also agreeing to […]

Sir Roger tells me he really didn’t want to have to write anything today. He has a new pair of Wellington boots and they are chafing his heels. He just wants to put his feet up and go to that nothing box men go to where women are not allowed. Perhaps this will help you […]

UPDATE: The Murdoch tabloids have issued a clarification of this story. Ritchard Gale’s mother said she thought Ritchard should apologise, not Casey Heynes. The Murdoch press has apologised to Tina Gale and so does Values Australia. We are also sorry – because after all this time we should have known better – that we imagined […]

Casey Heynes – hero or villain? The story goes that Casey Heynes, a pupil at a secondary school in Western Sydney [NOT Mt Druitt, but perhaps nearby], was bullied for months (in some reports his entire life) by these kids and in all that time he just took it but this last time it was […]
