Our politicians have wasted $26 million imprisoning these 2 Australian-born girls & their loving Mum & Dad on Christmas Island, 5000km from their home in the QLD town of Biloela, where they are loved and wanted.

I wish everyone fiercely protecting this date would read this. No long history of celebrating on 26th. And it would be so easy to

Better to get school kids participating in projects that reflect good values and sentiments, than to have them repeat words robotically.

Rosie Batty: “My immediate response is one of utter incredulity. I feel sickened. It makes me question the legitimacy of the awards system in the entirety across the spectrum”

Bettina Ardnt is overwhelming proof that not only is the Order of Australia system is broken, but our society thinks it’s okay to reward abuse, trolling and rape denialism. Australia, you’re in a right mess.

What a shop soiled trinket Australian Honours and Awards have become - Bettina Arndt, Campbell Newman and Amanda Vanstone. It’s only a gift for political services rendered, a prop in the culture wars and an excuse for non merit based appointments. They should be abolished

"Bettina Arndt awarded Australia Day honour for services to gender equity." 🤔 What next? Andrew Bolt awarded Australia Day honour for his services towards combating racism?

When Campbell Newman receives an Australia Day award for “leadership” and Bettina Arndt for “gender equity”, they’re just taking the piss and the whole award system needs major reform or just be dumped. Do many other countries have such awards?

Looking at the Australia Day honours list makes me sick. Bankers honoured despite the sector’s appalling record. Yet when I applied to get my dad an AO for all his volunteering even in his late 70s I was turned down. We have got it all wrong

My son worked at a cinema when he was 14 and a couple bought concession tickets. The lady went mad at him when he didn’t ask for ID... “oh you think I look OLD do you?” He was mortified. Best to err on the side of flattery 😂

It’s happened to me twice. As my GP said, you won’t see a breakdown coming. We have a list of things I began to do beforehand (eg spend more time in bed) and my nearest and dearest look out for them and get me help.
