THE RAPE OF DEMOCRACY

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

In 2007 Australia's two main parties (Liberal and Labor) effectively merged for a single election to stomp a third party out of existence. Although Australia First was a ratbag party, next time it could be an important party. The Rape of Democracy in Australia must never be forgiven and must...

When The Fourth Estate Became The Fifth Column

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

Australian law requires the news media to be impartial at election time. In 2010 before an election the media blew this out of the water, by prostituting themselves to Kevin Rudd, inviting him to perform like a trained seal on every TV show imaginable. This came unstuck though, when Rudd's...

BULL IN A CHINA SHOP

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

It’s hard to describe Jeff Kennett to anyone lucky enough not to have lived in Victoria during his regime. So, let me say that if you could roll Attilla the Hun, Adolph Hitler, George W. Bush and Tony Blair into one, what you would have would be a man with great subtlety, tact, decorum,...

A WORTHLESS HERITAGE

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

Black comedy poem about the over-zealousness of Heritage Australia. As brutal irony would have it, a tear or so after I wrote this poem Heritage Australia actually did list a toilet, which they claimed was built in the 1790s.

AL QUAIDA: THE NEW BOGEYMAN

By Philip Roberts  (booksie.com)

Terrorism is a terrible thing. But sometimes we have to ask who is terrorising whom. In countries like te U.S.A. & U.K. there is a tradition of making up boogy words and phrases like "commie", "red", "left" to put down great social reformners like Jessie Jackson and to stop important social...
