Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Exaggerations highest in over a century

On ABC's Q&A this week, Peter Costello took Nicola Roxon to task on the mantra that the Howard Government left Australia with the highest inflation rate in 16 years.

On investigation, it turns out that this claim is simply untrue - and a clear breach of the Rudd Ministerial Code of Conduct. I expect that a journo will be taking Mr Rudd up on this subject any day now...
