I mentioned the ignorance (or wilful lying) of the media. I heard one US media pundit refer to the Commonwealth Realms as "English colonies". No they're not. They are fully independent countries. The same commentator (and many others) claimed that the Monarchy was built on the slavery of "black and brown people". Another lie. As a matter of interest King George III wrote a letter strongly condemning the practice of slavery back in the 1750's. Furthermore he never owned a slave nor invested in any company involved in the slave trade. George III of course was King when the "Act for the Abolition of the Slave Trade" was passed into law in 1807.

Well the first ads for "the voice" are out and no surprise they play like a CCP propaganda piece. So aboriginal people don't have a say in how our country is governed? Really? How is that exactly? After all they have the right to vote and to support whatever candidate/party on the ballot paper that they choose. Just like every other Australian. They have the right to stand for public office. Just like any other Australian. In fact there is nothing that other Australians can do that aboriginal Australians can't...

Really sad news out of Queensland. Just shows how potentially dangerous policing is.

The appalling race baiter Lidia Thorpe is the true face of 'The Voice'.

Dodged a huge bullet with "The Voice" comprehensively failing.

The highly disturbing public expressions of antisemitism (all from the 'left' and muslims) in Australia has taken me by surprise. Maybe it shouldn't have. Nonetheless, I could never have imagined that in Australia you would get crowds of people gathering to celebrate the slaughter of civilians. Nor could I have ever imagined that crowds would gather and chant "gas the Jews".

These expressions of hatred towards people of particular groups are however a very predictable outcome of identity politics that are so loved by the left. So in that respect I shouldn't have been surprised by the reaction of some after October 7. A reaction that has not tempered since that dark day.

Just recently spent a day up in the snow. Strange though as all of our climate "experts" were telling us less than 10 years ago that by 2020 we wouldn't have ANY snow anywhere. These are of course the same people who claimed we would be in a state of perpetual drought and that our dams would never be filled beyond 30% capacity from 2020 onwards. Not a prediction that has aged well. As usual however they simply restate their predictions and just change the date...over and over and over again.
