Bad Apples? or Bad Apple Tree? When will they get it? Or do they get it and try to hide the truth about the Afghanistan photos before anyone notices they’ve got it? First the disclaimer: To gloatingly photograph yourself with a slain enemy (whether self-slaughtered or not) is obscene, but then if the entire situation [...]

Today we celebrate the marriage of an unemployed¹ man, the son of a barking madman and a kindergarten teacher, to a fashion accessory buyer, the daughter of a flight attendant and a flight-attendant-made-good as a mail order salesman. Nothing wrong with that, of course. There are many people who get married every day with a [...]

Just a heads up on the NSW election result. As you already know – and here’s something you can bank on – despite all the talk of “change” and “new eras in NSW politics”, nothing is going to change except the names of the people who take the money and the names of the “mates”. [...]

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 [...]
