Just Who the Hell are the IPA?

Now I often enjoy the Drum, though was always annoyed by the ‘IPA Fellows’ that would appear on a very regular basis as guests. These self-assured, clean-cut gentleman (always men...) seem to be ‘experts’ [...] Read More...

Help me please, I do want to vote Labor, give me a reason!

24 Mar2013
Every man & his dog has given up Labor as a dead loss for the election in September. I am not so sure, John Howard was pretty much in that position at one stage too and it was only the intervention of ‘Childr [...] Read More...

Seriously, you want me to read this shit out on air, again...?
