Yes, 2016 was a bad year, but this one is somehow worse. I, like many, am feeling the burn of compassion fatigue, but it behoves us to keep caring.
Frank Rarely, head of Fake News at our Canberra Bureau, flew to London for an exclusive post-election interview with Theresa May. Here’s the account of their cathartic conversation.
The cold facts of May, a pouring wave of misrepresented disrespect and the hope of all bald men differentiate this week from all the others.
Grayson Perry’s latest project looks to project the voice of the Brexit-affected masses, but if both sides of the vote profess a love for their country, was the makeup chair worth the effort?
Think of it this way: it’s one less Monday you have to face. Overnight, the nation discovered the status quo in Canberra, Theresa May’s dipping popularity and the merit of watching someone buy $300 worth of fake plants.
The results of the French and Dutch elections have reduced Britain’s bargaining power post-Brexit. The only way to bargain her way out of it and secure decent terms is through unhinged unity.
On the surface, it looks like Macron winning the French election over Le Pen is a victory for logic over populism. However, underneath the frosting, the same stale flavour exists.
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.
Parting, as a great person said, is such unnecessary sorrow. With Parliament green-lighting the Brexit, expect a particularly messy divorce.
Last week, Tony Blair took it upon himself to change the minds of those who voted for Brexit. As he is one of those responsible for circumstances that enabled the vote, perhaps he should quietly slip to the background.
With the Brit parliament currently debating the particulars of the Brexit, there’s still the matter of the EU looking to bandage the cuts of those who voted against it.
Mother’s on the phone asking us to move back home post Brexit, but until she sorts the office out, we’re avoiding her calls.
Morn, all! What happened while you were asleep? Well Theresa is serious about leaving, yet more financial shenanigans from Canberra, and we have yet another name to attach to 007. Ffs.
The change in political thought brought on by Brexit and Trump has formalised the world of PR in the democratic process. So what’s #Nexit?
With the general consensus in Europe being suspicion toward the US, they’ve started quietly forming their own combined army via a joint bank account.
The winning vote for a Donald Trump presidency has seen cries that democracy has failed and strong rejection from those oppose. Seems nothing was learned from Brexit, right?
The general consensus is that 2016 can eat a bag of dicks. So let’s savour other fruits before we apathetically return to the bag for 2017…
I’m out of jam. Sigh. What happened while you were asleep? Well, Brexit took a turn for the worse, Dreamworld announced the closure of that ride and the Palace asked the people to back off.
The week that was saw the Brexit bomb, Australia pained by shootings, Scott Ludlam take leave to address mental health and Steven Seagal given Russian citizenship from ol’ buddy Vlad.
