What IS The Doherty Report?


We keep hearing about the wonders of the ‘Doherty Report’ and how it will, like Moses, lead us to the promised land of no lockdowns, no COVID-19 and an economy where capitalists can carry on enslaving the plebs ever more cruelly!

But just what IS this fabled report and how accurate is it in its prophecies?

Here is one detailed attempt to decipher its methodology, its conclusions and its misuse by a Prime Minister desperate to achieve something. ANYTHING!

This article contains much that our political ‘leadership’ is NOT telling us. Such as just how ineffective Hotel quarantine really is.

It is a long article but well worth a read!

Fifty Years of Imagining


Fifty Years of fruitless

Imagining in song

And yet still we hope

Perhaps one day we will

Overcome our genetics

All the inbuilt self hatred

Expressed as hatred of others

Too late for you and I

But perhaps it will be

For our children to heal

Oh please, let it be.

Respect and Consent


CEREMONY UPON CANDLEMAS EVE


Near to Twelfth Night, I thought to give warning using the words of Robert Herrick.

Down with the rosemary, and so
Down with the bays and misletoe;
Down with the holly, ivy, all
Wherewith ye dress’d the Christmas hall;
That so the superstitious find
No one least branch there left behind;
For look, how many leaves there be
Neglected there, maids, trust to me,
So many goblins you shall see.

A Tale of Two Slogans


I am sorry if this affects you badly. Memories of past atrocities can be offensive.

It is meant as a warning, as a sombre reflection on what is happening in our society today. Concentration camps did not begin with gas chambers (The British started them during the Napoleonic Wars) Yet the carelessness for human life grew as the camps became commonplace in The Nazi Empire.

That carelessness for human life is beginning to show in our Australian society.

In the Refugee ‘facilities’, in our ‘care’ for the unemployed, in our Aged Care ‘Homes’, . Unless we, as a nation rise up and say, ‘ALL our people are valuable. All humans have worth.‘ then we are committing our nation to a path which I dare not contemplate.

They imprisoned the Refugees and I said nothing because I was not a refugee.

They forced the unemployed into crime, prostitution and drugs but I said nothing because I was employed.

They imprisoned the aged in understaffed, underfunded institutions and starved them but I said nothing because I was not old. But I accidentally lived long enough and the Old caught up with me!
