I’m not just being a sore loser

I’m not just being a sore loser. I really believe that Rupert Murdoch through his media outlets probably influenced the outcome of the election. Newspapers are meant to report the facts. Opinion pieces are fine but not on page one in glaring capitals.

Why have we all been made to feel that Australia was on the brink of economic disaster? Yes there are a lot of things in the country that need fixing but when isn’t there?  Can anybody remember a time when we weren’t asking for better schools, hospitals, roads etc? I can’t and I’m not young.

Regardless of which political party you choose to support everyone deserves to get the information they need to make an informed decision. This election has been more like one of those terrible reality TV shows. It’s all been about personalities.

I have included a link to the online petition Complaint Against News Corp. Please read it. I won’t say sign it because that’s up to you but reading it can’t hurt can it?

That’s my Rant for today. I could say a lot more but I’m too cross right now.


I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
