Men and Whitlam of Australia

  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 […]

Lord Roger Migently?

  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. […]

Democracy – Dancing for Joy?

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 […]

A Moron in a Hurry – Part 3

. . .. Previously on Moron in a Hurry:  Sir Roger, strapped to the rack by the Madam Intimidatrix of the Hooded Brethren of the Gruff Wiblam Edifice, shouted that “Freedom is a state of mind”, wondering where he’d heard it before, whereupon his bonds evaporated and the spirit of Wiblam was upon him and […]

Life in Australia

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 […]

The Next Big “Sorry”

Want a long-range heads-up? The question we should be asking Abbott and Gillard and all of their various immigration spokespeople right now is this: How do you feel about the inevitability that – possibly in your lifetime – a future Prime Minister of Australia will stand up in Parliament to make a heartfelt apology on […]

VERDI REQUIEM: DON’T MISS IT IF YOU CAN*

  Sydney Sings Verdi Requiem If you’re in Sydney next weekend (3pm Sunday 28 April) Sir Roger has a shameless plug for you. Actually, Sir Roger has a PEAK MUSICAL AND SENSUAL EXPERIENCE FOR YOU (Sir Roger knows how much you like a sensual experience.) This year marks Verdi’s 200th birthday and the truly excellent […]

Migently Mountain Manifesto: Stave the Second

In one the most savagely beautiful and exceptional works of fiction, the book of John begins, “In the beginning was the word…”

Migently Mountain Manifesto: #1 (unscheduled interruption)

We interrupt this pre-recorded segment to bring you an impromptu message from our sponsor. Sir Roger has been touched by the loyalty of one of his longterm readers and a fellow-blogger to muse on the importance of friends. What is a friend? A friend is someone who cares, fosters, encourages and shares, someone who is […]

Migently Mountain Manifesto #1

Sir Roger is returned from the Mountain with the Migently Mountain Manifesto and here are Tablets One to Five: 1.   Do what is right.     2.   You are safe. Now, at this instant, you are safe. You are safe, right here, right now. This might allow you to calm down and get […]

Australian Values

The Migently Mountain Manifesto   Australian values have lately been enthusiastically asserted by some Australians and Sir Roger has been much impressed – in much the same way a washed-up prize fighter feels the repeated impressions of his opponents’ fists in his guts.   These assertions of “Australian values” tend to be energetically debated in […]

On War: Notes to My Son

…and to yours, and to all of us.        Sir Roger is currently in the land of the poppy but not near Flanders fields. Yet there are poppies here in the South of France and the whiff of war and bloody conflict is inescapably faintly background to all. And so it was a cold and […]

Is Labor Finished?

  Sir Roger Migently is not angry. He is over it. According to Friday’s ABC 7.30 Report The Government is pushing ahead with its demand that dozens of dentists repay $20 million claimed under Medicare for treating people with chronic diseases. Here’s how it is: Few people can afford dental service, not even preventive. Just […]

Hamgar & His Love for Elenora – Pt 5

    He walked away. He walked back. He could not look at her. He could not look away. He began to say something. He could not say anything. What could he say? Whatever he said must appal Elenora, perhaps disgust her. Certainly discomfort and embarrass her. The last thing he wanted was to cause […]

Hamgar & His Love for Elenora – Pt 4

  In less than a heartbeat it was done. The Cupid’s, Bertrand’s, tiny arrow was buried deep in his heart. Cold as deep blue ice. Hot as white hot gold. From this moment there was no hope of Cupid’s cruelly-barbed steel ever being removed without tearing his heart out with it. And Hamgar looked up. […]
