Sir Roger believes Malcolm Turnbull could easily be the next Prime Minister of Australia. What do you think? Here’s why: 1) The coalition and the right wing media will bring too much pressure on Julia Gillard about the Slater and Gordon quagmire – either facts or compelling implications – so that either she can’t [...]

How do you think Australia’s economy is going, compared to the rest of the world? Sir Roger wonders because some rainbow-lovers say it’s magnificent and some shrill hurricane chasers say we’re going to hell in a handbasket and doom is upon us. Sir Roger had his servan staff do some forensic research. They [...]

Source: fromupnorth.com on Pinterest On this definition most of the press, radio and television – at least the “popular” versions – are very small indeed. So are most of the politicians who spewed their vitriol over the last week, including especially Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, Wayne Swan and the country’s most boring politician since [...]

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” [...]

Here is Sir Roger’s advice on asylum seeker/immigration policy for Julia Gillard, Tony Abbott and the rest of Australia’s panicked, “pragmatic” [=unethical, immoral and stupid] political elite who are slavishly, and in terror, reacting to the unholy self-righteousness of the christian right, the egomaniacal commentariat and the ignorant unwashed. It comes straight from the bible [...]

Ex-Media-Princess Reba à Crook today expressed astonishment at the latest revelations in the murky Views of the World scandal. “On behalf of the Worst of the News I personally gave Sasha a mobile phone to help her in our law reform campaign on behalf of her daughter. “The suggestion that anyone at the nudespaper [...]

…pluck it out, and cast it from thee. – Mark 9, 47 You know … everyone knows … Rupert Murdoch is an evil genius. And this latest move is certainly worthy of his deep-seated amorality. If Murdoch believes in anything he believes in two things: nothing and money. His latest move is pure evil [...]

[...oh, and New Zealand...] This is a heads-up that Roger Waters’ The Wall is heading to Australia and NZ early next year. It’s been a phenomenon in the US and Europe and the shows are certain to be booked out especially with only one concert scheduled in each city at [...]
Poor old dill-brain Barnaby (Rubble) Joyce comically suggested today on Insiders that perhaps he was a bit old-fashioned about women in uniform. I just couldn’t get my head around shooting a woman. Maybe that makes me a bit old-fashioned and I imagine other people get themselves in the same position. Nor would I like to [...]
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 [...]

Elizabeth Taylor. Ah. Sad. But a larger and more explosive and varied and glamorous legacy is rarely made. Sir Roger’s favourite Elizabeth Taylor movie is Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. Perhaps it reminds him of his own torrid, if mercifully brief and nevertheless highly productive, union. Vale, and thank you, Elizabeth Taylor.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Michel’s look cheap. And it makes them look unfriendly. And most importantly it makes them look as if they don’t trust you. That is shocking customer service.
