Graham Norton publicly jokes about Rolf Harris

Graham Norton managed to shock almost everyone, as he hosted the British Television Awards on Sunday as he joked about Rolf Harris and Jimmy Saville. Opening the star-studded ceremony at the Royal Festival Hall, the 50-year-old said he better hurry up and get on with things before any celebrities were detained following a string of … [Read the full story]

What has TOG been up to for the past 6 months?

After so many emails from my Ozzie News readers asking where I have been for the past six months, I feel it is only justice if I come clean on my sojourn. I was asked to help create a guest room-come playroom for my grandchildren out of a worn out garage. Now, building, construction and … [Read the full story]

Tommy Taylors SRU

Have I lost my mind? A serious rape on a bus in India has been followed by another multiple rape in India. How, after so much publicity and anger directed at those people who carry out attacks on females in this poverty stricken country, could it happen again? Never mind trials and punishment…these individuals should … [Read the full story]

I don’t know how to report the news this week. The darkest time for all of us, especially parents…its cruel how the wickedness in some people can destroy the lives of so many. At Christmas time we enjoy the friendship and happiness of our families and there’s (or at least there should be) peace to … [Read the full story]

How would Australian police have handled Lindsay Lohan this week? Maybe we are more used to using common sense and not jumping to conclusions. It reminds me of a story I was told many years ago. Rex Harrison was a very famous star and loved by his fans. However, unknown to them, he was a … [Read the full story]

Saint John the Divine was a monk on Patmos around one hundred years after the death of Christ. He wrote a book about Revelations…or possibly he dreamed about what he thought would happen after the destruction of the city of Jerusalem by the Romans. Mostly his anger was directed at Nero. Now today, we are … [Read the full story]

What a week it’s been. I always feel insecure when pollies tell us they are looking to give us better defence and a safer world. Look at what’s happening in the USA…there’s a president who does not want to spend money during a depression on war. He looked on as Egypt changed governments and Europe … [Read the full story]

What a wonderful Melbourne Cup meeting. The fashions the fantastic horses, and the stars come out to enjoy the fun and hopefully win some cash. Green Moon was outstanding and an easy winner. I expect him to be back next year to win it again.  Excuses for our tip?…you cannot expect him to win when … [Read the full story]

What a week it’s been. Celtic robbed in Spain and a budget robs everyone else. How we still give millions of dollars to foreign countries and spend millions more on infrastructure and boat people. How much did we get from Carbon Tax? Still don’t know! Well, spend it anyway. Perhaps we should have a poll … [Read the full story]

Tommy Taylor’s SRU (Sunday Round-Up)

Another week of spin and pollies ducking the issues they promised when elected. Both parties highlighted issues relating to education, policing and health. Crime is increasing…especially violent crime. The promise of more police officers recruited to the force has been a miserable failure. There’s going to be more doctors and nurses to boost our hospitals … [Read the full story]
