Seneca was born in Roman Spain about the same time as Christ fetched up in a stable, and for balance, on the back of the book cover there’s this: Seneca may well be history’s most notable example of a…

By Denis Bright Despite hours of attention to eyewitness news services, the big picture of just what is going on at home and abroad is sometimes quite confusing. Welcome to the largely unreported roles of Conservative Civic Codes (CCCs) revitalized during the Napoleonic Era to simplify decrees inherited from the French Revolution before the bloodless…

The Iraq Inquiry Report (2009-2016) documents how Tony Blair committed Great Britain to war early in 2002, lying to the United Nations, to Parliament, and to the British people, in order to follow George Bush, who had planned an aggression on Iraq well before September 2001.

So far 2017 is off to a cracking start. It hasn't killed any meme-worthy celebrities. Donald Trump isn't president. And I'm not even scrambling through a post apocalyptic wasteland fighting for rat meat and potable water. So, yeah. Good times. This is a great year so far.

Tuesday January 3 2017 The Government did do us all a favour in ridding itself of the gutter politician, Tony Abbott, as leader.

One of the few positive outcomes from the car-crash of Brexit and Trump is that political leaders are finally realising that wealth inequality is not a democratically maintainable situation.

In June 2015 Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens pleaded with the government to do more to lift the economy. In the past year “public final spending didn’t grow at all, public investment spending fell by 8 per cent.  It would be confidence-enhancing if there was an agreed story about a long-term pipeline of infrastructure projects,”…
