Van Badham eye roll counters Latham landmine – @Qldaah #feminism






On Sunday morning’s Sunrise program Guardian Australia columnist, Van Badham, was verbally attacked as a selfish feminist leftist anarchist by former federal Labor leader, Mark Latham. He also accused her of not knowing anything about working class families and social equality. In a perfect demonstration of how men talk over, at and for women, he and host Andrew O’Keefe argued loudly between themselves. Fellow conservative panelist, Miranda Devine, was also not able to get a word in for several minutes during the heated exchange. Speaking about the gender statistics of university graduation, Latham suddenly veered off to make another attack on Badham. “When you get away from Van’s debate about women like her… because left feminism […]






Aunty through @TurnbullMalcolm’s independent looking glass of #auspol’s realpolitik: @Jansant comments






Last week, New Matilda published explosive details of a secretly recorded private conversation between Nick Ross, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s (ABC) former Games and Technology Editor, and Bruce Belsham, the Head of ABC’s Current Affairs division.

The recorded meeting took place On May 28, 2013 and reveals Belsham (@BBelsham) was fearful of pressure from Malcolm Turnbull (@TurnbullMalcolm), the then Shadow Communications Minister and current Prime Minister, and/or someone from his office, as well […]






From #Watergate to #Ashbygate: A review of “Ashbygate” the book, by Joan Evatt @Boeufblogginon






A few weeks ago Ross Jones and Dave Donovan, of Independent Australia, sent me messages asking me to review Ross’s book on the Ashbygate saga. Despite being as crook as Rookwood I was more than happy to agree, and in due course a copy appeared in my letterbox. I was in the middle of reading it very, very late one night when I happened to notice “ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN” being run on one of the Fox channels and started to watch it.  You know how you are in that semi-somnolent state when something is triggered, a penny drops, and suddenly you are alert and alive. What got me going? […]
