Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

Crap Corner – Greg Sheridan from The Australian, again

Greg Sheridan from The Australian is full of it. The Left has supported the masses in Iran. But unlike Sheridan we are not lining up behind butchers like Mousavi.


Make-believe anti-semitism: the last refuge of Zionism

Crap Corner – Ackerman says fairness caused economic crisis

Piers Akerman, writing in The Sunday Telegraph of November 9 (“Can Rudd stem the rise of Fortress America?”), had this to say about the economic crisis.

Crap Corner – Gerard Henderson wins the first award!

The first winner for Crap Corner is Gerard Henderson. I came across this from 2003 after googling my name to see if an article I had written recently had been picked up elsewhere.
