Mark down March 19, 2015 as the date that total surveillance went fully mainstream in Australia. Both major parties of Australia’s bent, broken and hobbled parliamentary system voted for metadata retention laws that will effectively turn all of your net-connected devices into telescreens. Don’t panic, though. It’s not like they will actually be listening in to everything you say or reading your facebook status updates, or watching you as you buy ice from your friendly street-corner dealer. No. They don’t need to. They will only have access to your metadata; ALL the data about ALL your data. And also, don’t … Continue reading Telescreen Roll-out Commences
Dredged up from the archives, from before I was who I am today, this has been one of my posts of enduring popularity. I think it gets lots of hits just because it has the word ‘fuck’ in it more times than it probably warrants, but there you go… Enjoy this old bit of junk from over 2 years ago. Aaah, those were the days… The world seems to be bubbling over with outspoken mega-rich individuals, promoting themselves and some delusional policy or social program, usually with painfully obvious self-interest at the core of their messages.

Given the current height of tension in regard to the problems in the Middle East and Afghanistan, and Australia’s role, it was obvious that if any… Continue reading MH370 AND JINDALEE (WHISTLEBLOWER)
My Doubt Radar is in overdrive. In the last 24 or so hours, a story has emerged regarding the discovery of a remarkably pristine looking moist towelette bearing the Malaysia Airlines logo on its outer packaging, apparently washed up on a beach in Western Australia. I’ve only had opportunity to briefly peruse the stories and images, but I’m already calling ‘BULLSHIT’. Initially, I was prepared to call bullshit within a minute of looking at the OBVIOUSLY STAGED pictures – until I found that the article (linked to above) stated clearly that the images were a “recreation”. (Well, that just confirms … Continue reading MH370 Moist Towelette Reduction
The Prime Moron of Australia, tony abbott, has rolled out the welcome mat for indigenous Australians to relocate to major cities, by reminding them that they live in the desert and that cities are way better and you can get stuff in cities that you can’t get in the desert. In a political master-stroke, abbott has saved the nation (and the good state of Western Australia) many millions of dollars and enticed entire remote indigenous communities to relocate to the city, simply by making them aware that governments cannot “endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices if those lifestyle choices are not conducive to the kind … Continue reading Welcome To City
