In a world gone mad with political correctness and contrived offence-taking, this site is dedicated to fighting back.

Let’s rejoice in our diversity, poke fun at it when appropriate and mock those sad souls who seek regimentation for everyone to align with their views. Most of all, let’s laugh at life in all of its continuing craziness.


The relevant authorities yesterday announced Sydney air quality is now at hazardous levels. Adding to God’s apparent wrath at Australians, he’s now arranged for temperatures across Australia, including Sydney, to hit the mid-40s.

My Sydney based ex-wife is due today to stay for the summer and escaped the horror. She has options. Most folk don’t.

As I wrote a month or so ago, all that’s happening in Australia is exactly that forecasted by climatologists 3 years ago. It untenable and over the next few years we can reasonably assume a major migration hitting our shores from our Tasman neighbour. How we cope with this demands our Government prepare a contingency plan now.


Below is Garrick Tremain’s latest commentary on the dismaying, albeit typical New Zealand male cowardice of the Otago Daily Times editor when confronted by the baying mob.

Never a truer comment. But Garrick won’t be lost despite the ODT, rather red-blooded New Zealanders (there are some) will snap up a book of his unrestrained best on New Zealand life in 2020 when published at year end. All power to him.

P.S A better caption would have been this exchange between the man and his wife.

Man; I thought you said the cat was now past it and could no longer catch mice.

Wife; He is but I saw the mouse and it was old and doddery.”


Despite the cowardly, anonymous and ignorant hate mail Garrick Tremain has apparently received (offset by a flood of supporting messages I’ve received for my piece about him last week), the man showed he’s a true humourist and knocked out the cartoon below.

All of this raises the question how long before Massey University exploits this situation and opens a Department of Offense-Taking?


An apparently well-liked and harmless chap in Kurow threatened to commit suicide so the Police turned up and killed him. Perhaps they were influenced by the publicity ascribed to David Seymour’s assisted death Bill, thus this new service.

One thing’s for sure. We can save the cost of the assisted dying referendum and simply rely on the Police to take care of the situation when it arises.
