A Ricki Lake-grade zinger, a foreclosed farm and a pack of people whining “you’ve changed, man” highlight the worst parts of #AusPol this week. Standard.
The difference between the political left and right seems to be built on the assumption that the other is wrong. That thinking is fundamentally flawed.
Hooley dooley, what a week. We’ve witnessed Trump burn bridges anew, marriage equality arrive on our doorstep, and a rather notable culinary scribe outed as a fraud.
After a study discovered that 75% of people no longer trusted their government, the next Brexit is a ‘when’ not an ‘if’.
Our problem with those who arrive on our shores is well documented, however, after recently visiting Britain, who harbours a similar problem, the solution is obvious.
With the news that the latest Brexit deal was rebuffed by France and Germany, UK Brexit insider Tori Banger believes that the only thing anyone will truly leave is their senses.
Is it time for Britain to accept Brexit, at least for now? Trisha de Borchgrave unpacks the prodigal but toxic path the next British Government will inevitably face.

May’s day will fall on June 8 this year, as she steers Britain through what is ostensibly the Brexit election. But if one thinks that mother will be generous, well…
The idealised Britain of ancient literature clashes with the realities of modern one, a schism wonderfully kept within the walls of German supermarket Lidl, who urge us to “Buy British”.
Happy morning after Brexit! Yes, that’s regret you taste, chums. What else happened while you were asleep? Well, a questionable portrait was hung, and Sean Spicer crashed through the floor.
Morn-o! What happened while you were asleep? Well, the future of the EU got shakier, a river was granted human rights and our cricketers scored an overdue payrise.
