Remembering Andrew Peacock

Written by

Andrew Peacock has passed away, an event accompanied by glowing tributes (inevitably, "great Australian") from the political class, present and past.  How good was Peacock?  And what, if any, were his achievements?

The Christian Porter defamation case has captured the interest of the nation and its media.  The former Attorney General has been accused of historical rape.  By a complainant now deceased, and her supporters.  The allegations were spotlighted by the ABC.  The eyes of the country are on the outcome, in the shadow of the Pell case and that of Fr John Fleming.

The Empty Campus (Part One)

Written by

The universities of Australia are now lonely places.  Crushed by Lockdowns, and suffering from myriad assaults that go back much further.  Part One of this two part article examines the collapse of standards and the transformation of Australian universities into corporations where students are now seen as "customers".  Part Two will examine the ideological campus.

The Christian Porter defamation case against the Australian Broadcasting Corporation is all over the media.  While some legal pundits are confident Porter will prevail against chief Cardinal Pell accuser Louise Milligan, others are not so sure.  The John Fleming case may portend an unfortunate legal precedent.  This article appeared originally in The Epoch Times.

Scotty's Jab

Written by

The Covid vaccines have been hailed as the world's route out of lockdown and associated measures.  Not so fast, as we now are coming to realise.  The inept Morrison Government should be held to far higher standards of accountability for our Covid mess and for all of the vaccine lies the Government has told or allowed.

Fembots and Christians

Written by

The MeToo brigade were, sadly, not done with the vicious pursuit of Cardinal Pell.  A year on, they are back for another Christian.  Guilt by accusation, admittedly dished out with ideological selectivity, is in season again.  Destroy.  Destroy.  Destroy.  A version of this article appeared in The Spectator Australia of 13 March 2021.

Rethinking Howard

Written by

This week we remember the election of John Howard's Government, twenty-five years ago.  How the time as flown.  Mostly Howard is remembered with affection.  Some even have suggested that he was our greatest prime minister.  Was he that good?  Was his Government the best?  Sober reflection is required, and hindsight helps.

The Contradictions of Vaccine Politics

Written by

The current penchant that governments and many citizens have for "Covidocracy" looks like becoming permanent.  This is despite the initial promise of the silver bullet vaccine.  Those who, quite legitimately, question the efficacy of the jab, are prone to made pariahs.  Rather, they should be lauded as the rational ones among us, and thanked for pointing out the massive contradictions of vaccine politics.

Two Titans Felled

Written by

Around a year ago, Rush Limbaugh was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer.  He has now passed away.  Like the also recently departed Sir Roger Scruton, Rush was a conservative titan.  He also revolutionised American media.  I penned this article - unpublished until now - i early 2020.
