Obama’s Paris shortcut hits a dead-end

Paris deal should have been a treaty, not an executive act

Heads are exploding over the fact that Trump is pulling the US out of the Paris Climate Accord. Much noise and fury from many a keyboard warrior has been spent predicting doom for all mankind as a result of this decision. I’ll spare you the gory details, but if you’d like a good laugh at […]

May I present the Pilot episode of ‘The Pub Test’, a new project I’m seriously considering launching.

Watch it and let me know if you:

  • laughed,
  • learned something,
  • and if you’d like to see more of them!

The group I’m working with are a bunch of fun and we had a ball making this pilot episode, so if you have as much fun when you watch it then… hey, maybe we’re on to something! But we’ll only do more if enough people watch it, and enjoy it, so leave your comments and help spread this video!

Your public ‘servants’ at work

Et tu tax department?

In a classic ‘do as I say, not as I do’ moment, the Deputy Commissioner of Taxation has been summonsed to court for allegedly abusing his position in relation to a massive… wait for it… tax evasion scheme. Michael Cranston, the deputy commissioner of the Australia Taxation office, has been charged with abusing his position as […]

It’s a brave new war.

WCry attack should be a wake up call

I don’t promote the fact heavily, but I am a rep for a cyber security company that is one of the few (maybe only?) that can stop attacks like the WCry Cryptolocker attack (also called by many other names such as ‘WannaCrypt’) before they even start. That’s another story, but if you’re an IT boffin […]

Did you know that there’s a privately run, market driven housing affordability scheme which is subsidizing housing to the tune of $11 Billion every year?

This is my take on the Housing Affordability Crisis and the outrage against ‘negative gearing’… and a lot of people aren’t going to like it.

Student Union Speech Fascists

A parody of themselves

There isn’t a ‘facepalm’ meme dramatic enough to match this spectacular own-goal, scored by the Lincoln University Student Union: That’s right, the LU Conservative Association had the temerity to accuse the LU Student Union of being intolerant of free speech… so the solution (according to the LUSU) was to… shut down their speech. Can they […]

18c inquisition ends in QUT case

The persecution-by-process ends at last

It seems that this is finally the end of the road for one of the more absurd chapters in modern legal history: Justice Dowsett handed down a 56-page judgment which comprehensively rejected Ms Prior’s attempt to run an appeal against a lower court’s summary dismissal last November of her bid to sue the students for […]
