    Letter to the Editor: Eugenie Sage’s Closed Mind

    Dear Editor I must credit Hon W. Peters with having some concern for the environment. He has announced a fund, small in relation to the problem, but nevertheless a significant amount. Social pressure on the MPs by concerned conservationists (real people, not DoC staff) has...

    Eco-Fanatics Prefer the Poor go Blind and Die

    Grubby Greens Pile Insults on Firefighter Heroes

    The Greens really are a party of opportunistic grubs. As if they hadn’t scraped the bottom of their slimy barrel of phony sanctimony already when they fell over themselves to exploit the terrible bushfires in Queensland and NSW, the Greens had to sink...

    The clown show that is Australia’s most “progressive” state and its failing, ruinously expensive electricity market just keeps getting funnier. It’s like a little Venezuela, right on our doorstep. As I recently reported, Victorians are going to be very lucky to escape massive...
