So John Howard has told another lie. What is new? This reptile of a man is the antithesis of everything I once believed was Australian. A liar, a warmonger, only interested in his own advancement. He denies me my equal rights while raving on about fair go. He has created conditions for the worsening of worker rights. He lacks any form of compassion. The day he committed Australia to war in Iraq, I put my Australian flag in a bottom drawer where it remains. I am no longer proud to be Australian since Howard was re-elected after that heinous act and am planning to move to a fairer society - New Zealand. I do not know that Peter Costello would be any better but he could not be any worse.
A retired teacher librarian who loves travelling especially by train and wastes a lot of time on the Internet.
An Anglican who knows God loves me as a gay man.
Moved at the beginning of 2010 from the Blue Mountains near Sydney, Australia to Dunedin, NZ.
One of the best things I ever did.
I became a New Zealand citizen on 2nd March 2016
I will always be an Aussie by birth but am proud to be a Kiwi by choice.
