While you’ve been asleep, Nigel Farage has been milkshaked, Alan Jones ruined Q&A, and the ALP considered its options for a new leader. Also, you snore. A lot.
With the ABC’s Antony Green finally calling it, it seems that the Morrison government will operate as a majority, winning at least 77 seats.
Well, that just happened. However, Scott Morrison sensationally winning the federal election was merely the top of a very shady iceberg.
The state of Israel Folau echoes the state of free speech in this country. The words of one legendary writer warned us of this day.
Yesterday, public criticism died with Pauline Hanson and Kerri-Ann Kennerley perfecting the self-own. Clearly, we’ve overindulged.
The NSW police kicking a father out of an A-League game and later covering their tracks is not an outlier. Their heavy-handed approach has been frequently noted.
The reduction of our liberties is a systemic issue, with the future severely impacted by the past. In this country, we stand at a pivot point.
So, it happened again. However, I believe egging Scott Morrison so close to sausage day could leave us with a bad taste in our mouths.
Well, it’s been a particularly incompetent week, punctuated by Venezuela’s problematic coup and our lesser-known politicians being absolutely deplorable. But at least one elderly couple found $10m worth of methamphetamine on their doorstep. That’s good, right?
A prominent WikiLeaks activist has started a GoFundMe campaign to bring Julian Assange home. At the time of writing, it has already surpassed its original mark.

Well, it seems another of Fraser Anning’s press conferences has turned violent, this time with one of his supporters lead away by police. Whether we’ve learned anything from the egg incident, remains to be seen.
Our Watergate sees water bought with taxpayer funds, filtered through a Cayman Island company owned by sitting politicians. Yet, our media has been reticent to cover it. Why?
This ANZAC Day, I’m pausing to remember those who fought for us. Those who returned to this country only to find that their sacrifice and heroism didn’t count. Lest we forget who we are.
Well, what a week it was. The Notre Dame drove white-hot discussion, and Australia dipped to yet another unwanted sequel. What is this life?
The full release of the Mueller report clearly illuminated one issue. Donald Trump repeatedly obstructed justice, and he certainly abused the power he was given. But, don’t count on impeachment.
News this morning states that Israel Folau’s contract has no clauses that forced him to behave on social media. However, one legal expert believes that his employer’s case may not need it.
This morning, the legendary Notre Dame is burning. With the spire already lost, it is likely that we’ll lose a thousand years of Paris, and with it, one of her more identifiable features.
To his critics, Julian Assange’s arrest proves that he isn’t above the law. However, with his lawyers crying foul over his treatment, I’m wondering what law he actually broke.
