Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

In defence of flag burning

This is a link to me going head to head with David Oldfield on radio station 2UE 2 and a half years ago in defence of flag burning. It was prompted by a young Aboriginal girl burning the Australian flag on the stairs of Old Parliament House on Invasion Day in 2012. It is the […]

Jailed Aboriginal men converting to radical Islam – every racist’s nightmare and wet dream

The fight for Palestine is the fight for a treaty and sovereignty here. The fight for a treaty and sovereignty here is the fight for Palestine. One struggle. One fight.

Unions: fighting against asbestos, unlike the Hawke Labor Government

Three weeks since the attack on Gaza began, […]

If you know someone in the left-wing media who has made an outstanding contribution to journalism or to leadership, including campaigning journalism and journalism that looks outside the square – and it shouldn’t be that hard given much of the MSM produces ruling class sycophantic drivel – then nominate them. All you have to do is send 300 words explaining why to Barbara Blackman (barbara.blackman@walkleys.com).

Securing the MH17 site: They don’t like it up ‘em

Whenever I hear Abbott talking about Australian police/defence forces securing the MH17 site, I am reminded of this. ‘They don’t like it up ‘em.’

Palestine and the Arab counter-revolution

There are two things that are certain. One, the crisis of poverty and inequality and injustice that brought forth the Arab revolution has not been resolved and will not go away. Two, however terrible the defeats suffered by revolutionaries across the Middle East these past years, the flame of resistance has not been extinguished.
