On the day of his memorial service, it’s fitting to recall Bob Hawke was a great leader because he fought for what he believed in and was strong enough to say “I will convince you I’m right.” For the most part, he also made being Prime Minister look like fun..sadly lacking today!

Footy desperately needs colourful characters like @joffacorfe and Trout. @AFL must act NOW to respect their passion, devotion and understand they represent so many fans so disillusioned with the way the game is run. Footy MUST be all about fans. Without them the game is nothing.

ALP and ACTU must finally be strong ..disown John Setka and force him out as CFMEU boss. He pleads guilty to harassing a woman. He disparages the anti family violence work of Rosie Batty. He is a dinosaur, a bully on so many levels, and should not be in a position of influence.

Great insight and analysis Joe. It’s that old truism..in a choice between cock-up and conspiracy , always bet on cock-up ! You also (inadvertently !) shone a light on a ridiculous modern phenomenon..irrational, uninformed twitter over-reaction.Well done!

Not the tourist attraction we thought we’d find in Portugal!! English football fans outside our Hotel in Porto..one said “ we want to make sure people know we’re here!” In great voice and great spirits ..even though their team lost a big game two nights ago.

Those who voted differently to you are NOT evil, they are NOT stupid, they are NOT uncaring, they are NOT part of a conspiracy ..they have a different opinion to you, that’s all. As Winston Churchill said “Democracy is the worst form of Government , except for all the rest.”

Even more alarming about these raids on journos is the timing . Why now ? It’s years after the stories were published/aired . Is it a Government emboldened by unexpected electoral success thinking it can get away with it because they sense a national anti-media sentiment ?

Mark Knight's cartoon was legitimate, appropriate commentary on Serena Williams' childish, overbearing tantrum. It was NOT racist. is Australia's best cartoonist. We need fearless artists like him poking fun at the powerful for health of our democracy, society.

Sen Leyonhjelm's slur on Sen Hanson Young was despicable. He fancies himself as a warrior against political correctness, but this is just plain offensive, puerile. No one should have to put up with that in a workplace ..let alone Parliament which should set community standards .

Discussing Karen Ristevski sentence with my wife..a former TV court reporter and usually a staunch defender of the legal system. She was in tears “this has set back the fight against domestic violence.” She’s right. It’s a betrayal of Karen, her family and women in general.

While it was great to see old political warriors Paul Keating and Bill Hayden at Labor launch, the appearance of Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard smiling together was so confected, fake, counter productive. It only reminded voters of what a disaster the last ALP period in Govt was.
