  1. Loved it! It is so refreshing to read this kind of political critique. I found it informed, detailed, global, local and funny! Humour is contagious and perhaps critically useful. None of the overwrought (and yet supercilious) bowing to that pernicious species of termite that has infected SMH, ABC, BBC (etc,ect, ect) aka journalistic ‘balance’. More of it. It may be the only way to take back ground.

  2. It’s nice to have a writer treat their audience and subject with respect. Humourous and thought provoking opinions. Whether you agree or disagree it’ll give you something to think about. Aussie satire is back baby!!!

  3. Great read, Kieran. SloMo is too smart for his own good. At some point even his minders will realise that there is no substitute for good governance. Pics of curries and cubby houses just won’t cut it in the long run.

  4. Spot on man. I’ve always said bad government can kill you & this has come to pass thanks to the useless corrupt Coalition
