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)

Pauline Hanson’s One Nation implodes – again

Hanson’s ever-changing policy approach reflects the PHONies’ pretense of being for the battlers while aspiring to be part of the establishment, I write in Independent Australia.

His comments about Chinese ownership of Australian assets and his questioning of the ability of Australia and some states to repay government debt represent the day to day concerns of millions of Australians, in particular middle […]
