Some like me are migrants. They come from everywhere. Many are multi-generational white Australians who love this country and strive for it. I don’t want my kids putting their hands on their hearts to pledge allegiance. They don’t need to. They’re Australians already.

On this , I am struck by this thought: I wasn’t born here. I was lucky enough to be welcomed here. I have lived a decade of my adult life overseas but overwhelmingly my friends have been and are Australian. Some have heritage going back 1000s of years.

Today is not a day of celebration. For First Nations people it is , a day of mourning and a yearly reminder of ongoing oppression, murder, and systemic racism. We need a day we can celebrate together. But first we need to tell the truth.

Even without policy, clean businesses are growing and at some point the lobbying by people wanting change will get closer to matching the fossil fuel lobby...at that point we have a chance...maybe 5 years away?

Between that inexplicable pledge from Tanya Plibersek, Ken Wyatt’s pro January 26th stance, Bridget McKenzie’s allegiances, Scott Morrison’s ‘hazard-reduction is climate action’ & Bettina Arndt’s ‘gender equity’ award, I can’t help but wish it was all one sick joke. If only.

So I suggest that the state which made a Member of the Order of Australia on Sunday – the third-highest rank under Australia’s civic honours system - for services “to gender equity through advocacy for men,” should rename that rank Member of the MRA Order.

Bettina Arndt, acting as go-between for Mark Latham, tried to get me to go after Rosie Batty. ML had apparently been investigating for “18 months” but couldn’t provide a shred of evidence. So I wrote that. She accused me of betraying Mark. I told her to never speak to me again.

The argument really is that representative democracy finds it hard to deal with long-range problems. All parliaments (and other elected bodies) have terms, which tend to dominate their focus, unless the voters insist otherwise. Which they could.
