Remembering Andrew Peacock

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 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.

Fembots and Christians

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

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.

Abbott and Trump

Losing Trump was just like losing Abbott.  Two feisty conviction politicians with much in common have been lost to the West.  Their many enemies are grinning.  We will miss them both.  (A version of this article appears in the 6 February 2021 edition of The Spectator Australia).

The Australian Right's Big Mistake

Australia's battle of ideas - the culture war - seems lost, to the forces of progressive liberalism.  Those who would fight this battle seem preoccupied with getting the Liberal party into office, and keeping it there.  While the bigger battles go by, without a fight.  Understanding where we are going wrong is the first task in understanding the war we are in.
