The week that was was a particularly brutal one, highlighted by numerous stabbings and one man’s war against a spider.
What a state of affairs. The last week of 2018 featured Italian flair reaching Sydney, one Dad’s loving micromanagement and many tourists not making it back from their holiday.
Well, there’s no way to sugarcoat it. It’s been an odd week. The US pulled out of Syria, George Christensen pulled into South East Asia and schadenfreude powered the word of law.
What a week. PETA jumped the shark, odd things were heard in space and our politics went to complete doo-doo.
Our school kids skipping school to protest the Government’s inaction should be an example to follow. In fact, compared to the people who govern us, they seem like the adults
Current affairs this week: escalation in the Crimean peninsula, a racially motivated schoolyard assault, student protest against government climate change inaction, and further erosion for the Libs.
The week saw freed Bali Nine smuggler Renae Lawrence turn herself in for previous outstanding charges, an American missionary killed in India, and an enthusiastic father going too far to ensure his son’s football team’s win.

What a week it was. Brett Kavanaugh rose above criticism, a local MP exceeded his bandwidth and one NY subway ride got real chill, man.
What a week it was. Indonesia was rocked by an earthquake, the banks did poorly and one gent immortalised himself with a phone charger.
Ah, the week we survived. America registered the crack of gun violence, strawberried needles became the pre-eminent topic in Australia and we became intimately familiar with Donald’s member.
