In this town, politics is a form of entertainment, with no-one more so than Pauline Hanson. But is she speaking for herself, or being spoken for?
For those who immediately lost their innocence on 9/11, I feel every act of organised terror since has not reached us as we’ve adjusted our eyes to the flash of violence.
Those parents who blame the Internet for the ease of horror on developing minds should know that they’re the primary news source of Junior’s (mis)understanding.
The images of a lonely Scott Morrison at the G7 shouldn’t be a source of laughter, as I believe he’s inadvertently achieved what he has long coveted: relatability.
Retired athletes Steve Harmison and Wesley Sneijder recently went viral over being fat, but I feel we shouldn’t be so quick to judge.
According to one British publication, Googling our symptoms in lieu of seeing the doctor is on the rise. And I think I know why.
All this week, Sydney has been brutalised by her awful transport system. The right person to blame for this behaviour is obvious.
We now know the victim of yesterday’s stabbing as Michaela Dunn, we should move to understand, not judge, and destigmatise the industry she worked in.
I have something to admit. I live for the low blows and logically-inept battleground of Internet comment boxes. I know it’s a war where nothing is ever won, but I shoulder arms nonetheless.
This year, HBO’s Band of Brothers turns eighteen. To celebrate, I revisited that theatre of war, only to discover uncomplicated, problematic jingoism.
The story of James Harris Jackson, a white man who wanted to hunt black men speaks louder than the words within, in that the promotion of crime in America is still horribly biased.
After a Liberal MP made headlines believing that kids need to be taught ‘both sides’ of climate change, I’m of the mind that we adults need to stop talking.
Last night, the ABC’s Leigh Sales had a tub of yoghurt thrown at her. Considering the other instances of our dairy-spattered criticism, a pattern is obvious.
The MP that destroyed a hotel door is set to go on indefinite leave with full pay. The premier that offered him support has repeatedly promised to punish intoxicated politicians. A double standard is clearly present.
Crackdowns on journalism, offshore detention, discrimination enshrined in law. The world is starting to recognise Australia’s awfulness, and I believe it is time that we do too.
Scott Morrison recently took to social media to promise that he’ll eliminate suicide in this country. As one of the citizens with this “curse”, the PM is way off the mark.
In a since-deleted event, a 4WD group on Facebook has vowed to climb Uluru the day the climbing ban comes into effect, ostensibly to spite “do-gooders” and prove that “religious beliefs” should not dictate our enjoyment of the site.
The Left and the Right in this country are nowhere near each other. Which is why I’m claiming the ATO failing to process our tax is a boon. It is a mistake we could all enjoy. Together.
This morning, Tim Costello said that Christians fearing persecution in Australia should “calm down”. However, the perception of a threat to religion, and the judgments made to offer that protection, are not new.
According to Mathias Cormann, the top priority of Scott Morrison is protecting our right to choose a religion. This is a venture in folly, as we already possess that freedom. We should see this for what it is – a smokescreen.
So, the New York Knicks missed out on Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Zion Williamson. But you know what? We deserve everything we get.
With Donald Trump potentially visiting Australia, we have no reason to follow America into Iran, or against China in matters of trade. We have our own needs, thanks.
