Political dilemmas

By 2 September 2014 5

As a person who likes to be involved in my community, and indeed am, politics has become quite a frustration for me lately.

Woodstock rises from the dead?

By 2 October 2008 61

Saw this sign outside Akuna Club today (which is on Akuna St in Civic amazingly). It is a brand spanking new sign so WTF with the misspelling of 'They're' in the 'They're Back' and the overzealous use of apostrophes (yes I am pedantic about such things - and I know I'm not the only one who f...

Raiders tipped for the spoon again?

By 2 October 2008 10

The Canberra Times reports that Centrebet has the Raiders as the least fancied team to win next year's premiership. Apparently in the sub-editor and Kyle Mackey-Laws' minds this translated to wooden spoon favouritism. What it does mean is the Raiders are un-fancied and thus likely to remain in...

Labor: What's this? A new green tinged independent? Or a Labor Minister? The ALP is also rather proud of their latest animated TV ad. Katy's taking a swipe at the gaping hole where a Liberal Health policy should be. Jon Stanhope would prefer the elderly not marry, but rather stay eng...
