Teresa van Lieshout, like Clive Palmer, is not a team player!

Posted by Matt Hayden on Wednesday, July 3, 2013,
Not surprised that the Palmer United Party candidate for Fremantle Teresa van Lieshout has been dumped. She, like Clive Palmer himself, is not exactly a team player.

This was obvious right from the start. Almost immediately after being endorsed as his candidate she was publicly questioning the party's asylum seeker policy.

Ms van Lieshout, a teacher and author, told The Australian that Mr Palmer was entitled to his ideas but she thought asylum boats should be stopped and taken directly to Chris...

Shock: University of Notre Dame hostile to gay marriage activism!

Posted by Matt Hayden on Monday, June 10, 2013,
Two things that always astonish me about the more zealous proponents of politically correct leftism are their childlike naivete and sheer brazen gall. It's a very odd combination. But these are very strange people.

The little ruckus about the trendy lefty cause of gay marriage meeting a hostile reception at Notre Dame Uni is a good illustration of this:

Student Alex Kemp claims the university does not allow students to actively advocate for gay marriage on campus and refuses to recognise groups...

Area near Dixon Park, Hamilton Hill seems semi-rural

Posted by Matt Hayden on Tuesday, May 21, 2013,
One thing I really like about Perth is how spread out it is. Even though it's much more densely populated than in years gone by, there's still a lot of empty space.

You can even find patches of land that are reminiscent of the country between suburbs that are quite close to the CBD and Fremantle.

The area near Dixon Park in Hamilton Hill is an example of this. It's just...

Posted by Matt Hayden on Friday, December 7, 2012,
If you're anywhere near the intersection of Canning and Stirling Highways you can see an isolated and stately old building surrounded by vegetation called the Royal George Hotel. In its style and appearance it's quite similar to the Brass Monkey Hotel in Northbridge.

It hasn't been used as a hotel for a long time, however. It's most recent function was as an arts and community centre, although I'm not sure if it's still being utilized as such. I think it might currently be empty and unused. It...

Brazen daylight attack in Fremantle

Posted by Matt Hayden on Monday, June 18, 2012,
Something I've posted about repeatedly on this blog is the alarming increase in the amount of violence that is committed in this city. Of course I've read or heard about it much more than I've actually witnessed it.

But I did observe a disturbing incident yesterday afternoon in Fremantle. At around 5 PM I started walking up Wray Avenue from South Terrace and I heard yelling from up the street. I saw some blokes beating up one guy near the Hampton Road intersection. He managed to escape and run...
