COVER STORY Boris Johnson and the EU: Crash through or just crash

CANBERRA OBSERVED A quick peek into the security shadows
Windows into the inner workings of Australia’s security organisations are a few and far between, but the recent retirement announcement of ASIO chief Duncan Lewis provided a platform for revelations that the nation’s security agencies are facing an “unprecedented” wave of espionage.

HUMAN RIGHTS Unalienable rights can be recognised, not made up
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced the creation of a Commission on Unalienable Rights. Pompeo said it is to “generate a serious debate” about what human rights really are; “to provide fresh thinking about human rights discourse where such discourse has departed from our nation’s founding principles of natural law and natural rights”.

SECURITY Australian Signals Directorate comes out of the shadows
On July 1, 2018, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) became a statutory agency within the Defence portfolio. This was recommended by the 2017 Independent Intelligence Review conducted by Stephen Merchant, a former director of the ASD, Michael L’Estrange, a former secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Sir Iain Lobban, a former director of the British Government Communications Headquarters, Britain’s counterpart of the ASD.

RURAL AFFAIRS Distress, economic and societal, pervades Australia
In Prosperity and Distress in Australia’s Cities and Regions, Scott Baum, William Mitchell and Michael Flanagan have mapped a Prosperity and Distress Index (PDI) for federal electorates. While the level of stress is uneven within electorates, the city-country divide is stark. (See map below)

GENDER POLITICS I was America's first non-binary person: It was all a sham
Four years ago, I wrote about my decision to live as a woman in The New York Times, writing that I had wanted to live “authentically as the woman that I have always been” and had “effectively traded my white male privilege to become one of America’s most hated minorities”.

HUMOUR Japan G20: Donny meets Jenny
Recently World leaders gathered in Japan, for something called the G20? Your Theobogan didn’t know what the G stands for? Golf? Grog-on? Giggle-house? Turns out the G is for Government, the G20 are the top 20 Governments on earth, measured by GDP. Australia, hardly a world economic superpower, scrapes in at, you guessed it, Number 20!

MUSIC Dire tonics: Departure from harmony has proved a flop
What went wrong with classical music? It is worth asking when we consider how much it has been confined to academia, and modern works rarely gain much traction with the broad population.

CINEMA The Lion King: Remake takes a deeper look
1994’s The Lion King is one of Disney’s most beloved and critically acclaimed films. Drawing on Shakespeare and the Bible, the film was an original musical about identity and responsibility set within an imagined African animal kingdom. Vividly realised in traditional animation, the film remains an emotional and dramatic rollercoaster embodying the full potential of the medium.

BOOK REVIEW Public enemy No. 1 and his twin, No. 2
“We seek him here, we seek him there Those Frenchies seek him everywhere! Is he in heaven? Or is he in hell? That demmed elusive Pimpernel.”

BOOK REVIEW In the market with the Angelic Doctor
As Catholic scholar Christine Wood has noted: “After Vatican II, however, Catholic theology moved away from Neo-Scholasticism, and even Thomism in many quarters, because it was seen as too rigid and was perceived as a theological method that did not facilitate ready engagement with the modern world. This enabled other forms of theology and philosophy to flourish, with mixed results.”

POETRY
A week submerged in summer, and the boat is a green mass of river-weed. Within the hull shrimps flicker and fish glide, threading the full curtains and branches, laces and frills that coat the timbers. A sudden riot of flowering fronds of life on old white-painted boards bobbing in summer sun. A strange Lilliputian world of garden, castle, turret, glade, now lowering to ripples, tethered in hot green, holding fast hoards of inch-long lives, filigreed, soft tracery swirled. Along the bay, four other boats lie so, green, teeming with life where the warm shallows flash: odd, unintended cradles, rocking with the splash of washes, waiting in the summer morning’s glow.
