The ElectoRat Trap


... I sometimes have this image in my mind of this princess marrying a toad because no matter how many times she kisses him, he remains a toad... And there’s also this nice twist at the end in the movie Shrek... Ah... fairy tales versus feminism... But this is not about that.

“The essence of oligarchical rule is not father-to-son inheritance, but the persistence of a certain world-view and a certain way of life ... A ruling group is a ruling group so long as it can nominate its successors... Who wields power is not important, provided that the hierarchical structure remains always the same."

George Orwell, 1984

Reserve Bank Reveals Howard was Lying

I don't understand why this article in the SMH was not on the front page.

We can empathise with the Reserve's dilemna at the time.

Design upgrade

Regulars will have noticed small changes to the site over its opening weeks, all thanks to volunteers David and Nigel.

But David has just implemented a whole new look, still with cartoonist Gus Leonisky's banner design, but with some much slicker formatting.

Thanks heaps for your work David.

Please feed back All.

Conning Condoleezza Rice fronted the release of the US Department of State’s annual report on the rest of the world’s efforts on the human rights front last week…

the phoney war on terror .....

"The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy."
