Carlo's Corner

Carlo Sand's has an investment tip.

Carlo Sands has a chat about dystopian fiction.

Carlo Sands takes a look at the sad times we live in.

It is amazing what can be achieved by a potentially uncontrollable pandemic that doesn’t discriminate between rich and poor, doesn’t respect national boundaries and will destroy a global economy quicker than I’ll destroy a bottle of gin if forced to stay at home without sport to watch for more than a day, writes Carlo Sands

Bullying is never okay, and certainly not from the “lunatic fringe” inner city or “scientists”, writes Carlo Sands.

As Australia burns amid record-breaking temperatures and ongoing drought, and report after report confirms the dire consequences of global warming, it is obvious what we must urgently do: ban climate protests.

It is what the Quiet Australians in parliament and Sky News studios are clamouring for.

I was stunned to read reports that Peter Dutton’s home affairs department is rife with bullying and harassment. You learn something new every day.

I just assumed any department headed by Dutton would be a happy, friendly place, with puppies running around and flower gardens and lambs and group hugs every hour.

When the Coalition unexpectedly won the May federal elections, it was tempting to assume no good would come of it. But that type of thinking ignores just how much money the gambling industry lost with the defeat of the odds-on favourite, Labor.

It is bad enough that our rulers insist on pushing ahead on a course so disastrous that when a new report says human civilisation could end by 2050, you think “that’s optimistic” as you just saw another report saying the Arctic is melting so rapidly the scientists trying to measure it keep losing their tools, but, honestly, do they need to be so fucking smug about it?

A lot of people are alarmed at the rate at which prime ministers get changed these days. Personally, I’d be happy to have a new PM every week so long as none of them torture any innocent people in isolated offshore prison camps, writes Carlo Sands.
