Mental health, suicide: Letter to my ex who took his own life

I lost an ex-boyfriend to suicide in April. We dated 10 years ago at a time when both of us spent far too much time in pubs. He was bipolar, drank a lot, suffered from depression and was haunted by an ex’s abortion. If only I could have one more conversation with him, I wonder if I could have helped more? He wrote many articles about his mental health struggles, repeatedly trying to make light… → Read More

‘Pouring petrol on the flames’: Dark consequence of shutting down Israel Folau’s GoFundMe

Anyone who had any doubt in their mind that freedom of speech is under threat in Australia must now reconsider. Sacked Wallaby Israel Folau’s online campaign to raise money for his legal fight against Rugby Australia was removed on Monday morning. It’s important to realise, there was a larger point to Folau’s campaign page that had nothing to do with money. Many had joined Folau’s cause who… → Read More

State of Origin: Why we should leave the national anthem alone

Here we go again: a handful of people have decided they want the Australian national anthem changed and supposedly this is a “mood for change”. At last night’s State of Origin, a number of rugby league players staged a silent protest. NSW’s Cody Walker, Latrell Mitchell and Josh Addo-Carr and Queensland’s Will Chambers refused to sing. Reports are suggesting up to 11 players of 34 on the field… → Read More

Eddie McGuire: He apologised for his coin toss remark, now get off his case

Remember the good old days when a human being could make a mistake and there weren’t public demands for their head on a platter? Yes, I cringed as I heard Eddie McGuire’s comments as Cynthia Banham tossed the coin ahead of Friday’s coverage of the Swans’ against Adelaide. Anyone with a tiny amount of compassion — or common sense — would have winced. Hearing McGuire say on air that anyone who… → Read More

School Strike 4 Climate Australia: Kids just want a day off

When I went to school, a hundred years ago in the UK, we looked forward to “snow days”. Basically, if enough snow fell overnight, you bagged the day off, even if it had all melted away by 9am. Every kid of every age loves a day off school — especially without the guilt of wagging. It’s a free pass. Human beings of all ages like getting things for free. Aussie children preparing for the upcoming… → Read More

Opinion: Fallen AFL star Ben Cousins deserves our sympathy

IT’S easy to pass judgment on Ben Cousins. It’s all too simple to collectively roll our eyes, talk about a wasted life and label him a loser. Just take one look at social media, it’s far from kind. Yesterday, we read Cousins had been denied bail facing 16 charges relating to drug offences, breaching a restraining order and endangering another person. So, do we dismiss him as a lost cause? No, we… → Read More
