Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Lunch Being Attended By ‘Blood-Stained Dictators’ … and why are we still not a republic?

Queen Elizabeth II – our Queen, our head of state – celebrating her diamond jubilee, last friday, with at dictators. Included on the guest list was the king of Bahrain, whose regime has been accused slaughtering human rights activists.

Inviting blood-stained despots brings shame to our monarchy and tarnishes the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. It is a kick in the teeth to pro-democracy campaigners and political prisoners in these totalitarian royal regimes Peter Tatchell

ANZAC day: Lest We… What?

This Cenotaph in a small regional NSW town, with a cannon in the background, surrounded by rosemary, the symbol of remembrance. A lot of names inscribed, for such a small town.
