Thanks Esme.

Yeah, so I was called Albert Speer the other day. 

I mean, not out but you know, just casually like, in a conversation, like ‘get to work with the design + architecture and stuff’.

The best bit was the follow up, 

I said, what do you mean? 

I mean, because really I did think I just misunderstood. 

Well he said, ’the alternative not being nice.’

Like what I said? 

‘Like being shot.’

Yeah, that was the fucking icing on the cake. Not just mushroom clouds in your coffee but you know, the allusions that if I don’t get back to work, I could be shot. 

These are the guys that have promoted Yankeeville, under the cover of guise, that are still on the payroll and have spent a lifetime calling out the Nazi’s for running concentration camps – fucking Oscars for that shit – and they are threatening me over a phone line to get back to work or I would be shot. 

Oh you’re a fucking genius. 

Australia you’re standing in it. 

Too fucking right there. 


Nah, it gets better than that. 

God’s honour. 

The very same phone call, the very same human, says ‘well you can accuse me of many things, but I am always nice to everyone’

Seriously, this dickhead must think I am living on a planet in Shitsville or something because this guy spends most of his time gossiping about people and taking them down. 

‘Yeah, if that is the case why do you bastards spend most of your time bitching about powers that are not in your orbit?’ 

Like Russia, dopey. 

Or should we publish the Twitter feed? Cause that’s really complex stuff and worthy of our time. 

‘They are idiots. We hate them.’

Oh fuckin’ goodonya. 

Must have pissed someone off because a phone call like that pretty much lets you know about the crowd they are rolling with. 

It sure as shit ain’t my crowd. 


I thought the men loving men thing was sort of over in the town. 

Apparently not. 

Can talk about each other in glowing terms all fucking day. 

‘Your brother is so amazing’

Oh, get a room. 

If I don’t get to call a deceased male war hero Albert Speer or Ana I am seriously going to call in the Female Cops. 


I am always nice to everyone. 

These boys are having a good tug. 

Rack off. 

You just play dirty while getting money from big powers and then get awards!

Don’t fucking start me today.


When I am re-birthed, so help me God I will make money from talking myself up and pissing on the little kids while talking Fair Go Australia.

Who makes these people? 

Moral discussion on AI is clearly AWOL. 

So that’s handy. 

Wait, let me guess. 

You are Morally Clean and Able while destroying someone else. 


That’s some fucking balls. 

Can’t wait for them to spend hours talking about Freeing Julian Assange.

‘Ah Dickhead, didn’t you ring me and threaten me the other day?’


So, I just lay down in the Sun. 

Plopped myself on the balcony and soaked that shit up. 

Fuck ‘em Joe. 


Agnes Does KP.




Sometimes I think the Philip he say, Agnes, your clue go on holiday sometimes and I think, yes, it is true but sometimes it come home to me. 

Long time holiday, for sure but it come and I give it hug and say, thankyou very much my darling for coming back to me like Prodigy, no problem for me. 

And it come to me, that a lawng tyme ago, with the blood from smart but very naughty boy from long ago, that the Victoria she like the boy from me, and he do great things. Mah really. 

But the little Agnes, she know the block, and she think ‘mah what he do to the Great Ecky Thump Land of People Who Traverse the Globe And Do Great Things?’ 

And I think he very naughty boy, maybe he say something to the Yankee Poodles and the people Who Before Not Like the Ekky Thump Because Of Years Ago But They Fix That So but anyway And So the The Yankee Poodle Was Born. 

I say it and it is true. 


The true sometimes also go on the holiday with me. 

The Yankee Poodle from before He Was With The Ekky Thump That Before Fight The War that the Yankee Won From the Ekky Thump and the U2 they got the help from the Yankee for the PACE that now it stay. 

But Agnes, she think about this and she think. 

Mah these people very funny because why they no like the Empire That Was Before And Then They Have The Empire That Was Before.

Like, almost exactly but with new people. 

And the Thatcher she not for the turning but she turn for the Actor With the Bad Memory. 

This is very funny for Agnes. 

Before, when the fat one Who Drink Alot Win The War But Make British Empire Little Building That the Yankee Hide in When He Lose The War From the Yellow People well 

The Yankee he wait and he wait like the very smart boy and he take, no problem.

And the art, from the Booty, it go to them. For sure, no problem. 

Mah this is no problem but now the Agnes, the clue come back to her and she be the Yankee Poodle. 

Mah but no poodle for her! She have the real one. She have two and it one. 

And she wait. 

Big Empire for her. 

If the clue no go on the holiday.

Hello foreign affair! It affair of heart for sure. 


This serve us. 


You see? 


I do it all. 



Elizabeth and Aide-de-Camp


And what are we to do? To tell the people that they must smite the Chinese hordes while asking them to stay silent and not report 


Report with respect for 


Not report or acknowledge the hypocrisy of a war that if indeed ever came to pass would be, like all wars, the death penalty for those on the losing side? Our democracy it would seem wants to mirror the other side. And how then, are we to ever garner support for foreign policy? 


It was an interview with the presiding government official that clearly laid out 


The idea that journalists should not report anything that 


You are our leader Madam and as such 


No leader wants sycophants running alongside them offering unpalatable uncontested views


Your own policy Madam 


That interview was ripe for satirical riposte and I assure you many years ago it would not be allowed to run in a country born of the rum rebellion and sharpened on the legends of outlaws 


It won’t be 


There is no place for complacency now! I want a satirical run on foreign policy and I want some sharp blades 


You cannot order creativity like some 


I see. The Sistine Chapel painted itself did it?  Or is it a problem with ageing vaginas? What is Australia going to win? The Bland Brass Spoon? 


Cyber intelligence 


American hegemony was born of cunning and chutzpah. What you are doing is what you did in the 20th Century. You made sure a narrative of suffering was applied to ensure the best talents of the Jewish Diaspora went Westward, straight into the hands of the Americans. An empire was born and England went kaput. Of course later, the Americans cap in hand went to the UK and said ‘please help us with the Communist hordes’ and they obliged. Obviously, the Western advance is greater than historical memory. And now, our little Five Eyes wants the best minds of Asia into our wonderfully democratic hands when in fact, the country is still ruled legally, by virtue of a convenient constitutional aberration, by the Queen. Making arguments about authoritarian countries somewhat obsolete. We won’t mention the Saudi’s or in fact, the governance of most Islamic allies or the fact, that while the Uighar situation is wrong, incarceration rates in the Western world 


The State must at some stage 


Fashion a narrative. You cannot argue that the security law of Hong Kong is a problem if Kashmir and our own laws are a mirror to those very same laws. 


But we must ensure 


You can give 290 billion to an industry that has no accountability and on an environmental score, rates close to zero. What are you going to do, argue that tanks and lasers are ‘green’ technology? Made with recycled bottles? Please, entertain me. 


If the security environment demands 


What security environment? Which one? What you don’t like is that the Yellow People can make money. And I have not seen you stop any of the dams upstream 


That is a matter of security politics 


That is a matter of the environment as much as politics.  Much like the health of the citizens of this country who deserve to be ruled by people who care if they live or die. Or is that irrelevant to the greater cause? 


The dam is an issue for Egypt and 


What is that great large dome in Addis Ababa for? It seems to me, these very powerful and intelligent people that run the world are incapable of looking after the very same people they claim to represent. 


When we are talking about energy 


Yes. I’ve seen. I’ve seen what takes precedence over all else. If this country is to savour it’s earth, it will have to make a very strong case for immediate demands. I’d start making your case for your Foreign Policy. Until then, I’ll suffice with Looking North. And the end of the Trojan War. They tell me history makes a strong case. 


With all due respect, you cannot pause progress Madam


You are asking me to choose which child should suffer amongst all my children. That is not a choice nor progress. 


Harry and Meghan


Chose to run an independent race. The division, like many in history, is a chimera. Stay on the side of history. Or I should have no-one interesting to talk to. Keep up.
