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 […]

If Thy News of the World Offend Thee…

  …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 […]

Elizabeth Taylor

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.

Being Wrong

Being wrong is hard for most of us to take. I watch men in their cars with women, fiercely laying down with utter conviction the way the world really works. Of course I don’t actually know what they’re talking about but like them I think I’m definitely right. Neverthless I always smile knowingly in my […]
