No it is not a sermon, but the latest instalment of James Delingpole’s radio programme.
…it will be awesome.
For a review of the first movie consider the following review. Essentially corrupt cops, people smugglers and rich ‘laws don’t apply to me’ Arabs get their just deserts.
The left are upset that the WA Premier has not complied with bureaucrat naming policies.
I’d like to see more disobedience from our political masters, although I would have named it Camilla Quay. Has a nicer ring to it. Planning for the future as well. Would have made the left extra mad – a nice bonus.
Take one Anita Heiss, a cultural welfare junkie who is paid $90k by the Australia Council to write about how tough life is living in Paris at tax-payers expense. What a rort? Heiss also happens to have some distant aboriginal genealogy who sued to shut down Andrew Bolt for having the temerity to question her aboriginality and the special access this gives her to Federal revenue. Thanks to a politicised judiciary, a poorly written Federal law and a couple of mistakes Bolt made in his article, Heiss and her fellow revenue rustlers won the case. Both the ABC and Random House shut down comments on her latest book, “Am I black enough for you?”, Amazon is open for business though:
Heiss, whose memoir is partly a response to Bolt, did not want to comment last night and Amazon.com in the US had not responded last night.
Australia’s Race Discrimination Commissioner, Helen Szoke, said racist views published outside Australia but accessible here posed a growing – and challenging – problem.
‘Racist’ being used in a fairly meaningless way to shut down dissenting opinion. Apparently the books are very poorly written as well, Catallaxy Files:
That she received a $90 000 grant from the federal government’s Australia Council for the Arts to write Am I Black Enough for You? lends support to Campbell Newman’s decision to scrap the Premier’s Literature Award.
First the new QLD Premier Campbell Newman gets Anna Bligh’s husband to unwind hundreds of millions of dollars worth of ‘green’ schemes he helped implement at Bligh’s behest, and now Newman has said no to tax-payer funded awards for the political left:
Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has scrapped the Premier’s Literary Awards on the grounds that it will save taxpayers money.
Nearly 250k dollars per year dolled out to some second-rate politically correct ALP-Green apparatchik for a book we are unlikely to ever hear of again, but for which thousands of school children will be forced to read for school. Think of the children.
The 2011 awards were insightful: a book about communist historian Manning Clark, a girl’s ‘coming of age story’, something about lonely women, ‘a structure of interlinked stories’ about a dog, a rebellion against a ‘nasty’ religious mother and anti-forestry propaganda.
It’s rather remarkable that the left have gotten away with the tax-payer funded self congratulatory award caper for so long. Even more remarkable is how the ABC holds up the awards and their recipients like we are all meant to give a damn.
