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)



The Coalition ignores workers, veterans and refugees – but not war memorials

Today, the potential for economic, environmental and humanitarian change lies with workers just as it did after World War One, I write in Independent Australia.

I believe the ADF now accepts homosexuals and asthmatics. Have you considered offering your talents to them? You would make a fine personal assistant to an Australian Officer

What a pathetic comment from Peter Piper. He knows absolutely nothing about me and yet attempts to slur me with a homophobic comment. Typical of a reactionary. I only published it because it shows how backward he really is. Maybe he should crawl back under his rock and stay there? What do you think? He is an embarrassment to other right-wing ‘thinkers’. Or maybe he is a reflection of them and their incapacity to sustain an argument.

Peter Piper, you really are a homophobic idiot. I don’t understand (you may care to explain if you have the intellect) what John’s sexuality or health have to do with this abysmal waste of money on a war memorial when we have real issues to deal with; real veterans in real need for a start, which leaves aside issues on which this government is entirely paralysed, like refugees and climate change.
