Trump’s Secret Weapon


  In a sane world a Trump presidency would be utterly incomprehensible. The man is completely unqualified to run his own numerous bankrupt business ventures, let alone a country, and the world’s only superpower at that!

Fans Should Blame Essendon


Self proclaimed journalist, Jon Ralph, believes Essendon supporters should blame their club, or individuals within the club, for their current predicament. There are two minor quibbles with this notion, namely; ‘who’ and ‘why’. Ralph offers a suggestion as to whom, ‘even if it’s just Stephen Dank.’ On the surface, this stance would be worthless symbolism […]
