Left is Progressive - sometimes it gets you asassinated.
PUTNEY ST. MARY’S, THE KING MADE THEM REBELS! Oct-Nov 1647 Colonel Rainsborough was MP for Wapping, home to the East India Company and my Maternal hard-labouring ancestors.

Another Australia Day 26th January long weekend. It was the arrival of the First Fleet of British convicts.  200+ years later I discover my ancient rights and liberties are thwarted by the Tories of today, a  legacy of Westminster’s punitive policy against the disadvantaged.

Westminster rejected her base born, poverty stricken and protesting peasantry to the land Captain James Cooke had reported on his scientific mission of 1770.


JANUARY 2018 – 30 YEARS since my arrival as a teenager in 1978. My personal bush-fires mean a chronic psychiatric disorder thankful for a Disability Support Pension. The Government sees me as a burden to their coffers.

If I leave Australia, I will be paid for up to 28 days from the date you leave.

If I’m still overseas after 28 days, payment stops.

Consider this: It would be fair if I am entitled to 3 months Long Service Leave to contributing to the culture, giving birth to new daughters and now grandsons in this country. My parents are in their end years and disabled by various health conditions. I could reasonably expect to be called to either of their funerals anytime. 

I’m looking for my Australian Citizenship certificate so I can apply for a new Australian passport.  I must prove I am a BRITISH BORN AUSTRALIAN –  NOT UNDER SCRUTINY FOR MY DUAL LOYALTIES… our Parliamentary representatives!

I’ve been asked a handful of times if I would consider nominating for local government or Parliament. Like many British born emigrants being Australian is being born with a limb you regard as being part of your British Empire body.

It’s inherited from your culture. It’s common for family members or neighbours to go and live in Australia. The first time we were accepted to emigrate my Dad pulled out the day before the ship left. He couldn’t leave his Mum and Dad.

New South Wales was a potential Life-sentence!

It took mum a second marriage to return to the land of Oz. The first time had been torturous being kidnapped by a scheme set up to empty the orphanages after the war. Unfortunately, after 10years her husband  wanted to go back ‘home’.

My sisters and I knew which side of our sliced bread was buttered. Melbourne was our home Port, School and Work. Now I am the Matriarch holder of the boomerang.

Following in Pop’s footsteps.

Parliament starts again in two weeks. There are many of us creating paper-work for the Public Servants gathering evidence of our Australian citizenship.

I have to be prepared for flying back to England for sick and dying parents, and MP’s want to have the power to create a better society…like change the DSP rules to include the tyranny of distance! Through no fault of my own, I shouldn’t be held hostage to this Government’s policy.  

There are five categories in section 44 that set out who can be a candidate for the federal parliament and — more importantly — who can’t.

Put simply, section 44(1) of the constitution says someone can’t be a dual national and sit in parliament.

My question to the House is are they going to pay the Commonwealth back their income of which they weren’t entitled when the Centrelink poor have been hounded for less?

The assumption of many Brits(10pound poms) like my Yorkshire parents-in-law was Australia is not truly Sovereign; the umbilical chord is still attached. The Queen is Head of State and the taxpayers continues to pay the tab for the Royals to come and visit the old colony.

St. John’s Orphanage new intakes. Mum is 2nd row 2nd arms folded. 1st Minister for Immigration is Arthur Calwell, Knight of the Roman Catholics in Australia. A Royal Commission and Senate Inquiries start NOW!

I was spoon-fed a deep connection to Australia via my mother’s memories when she was transported to New South Wales, as a child migrant from the overwhelmed Orphanages in 1950.



My allegiance to this country of Australia when I arrived as a teenager was absolute. I was glad to cut my ties because I had been going through a tough adolescence with my peers and I saw NO FUTURE for me.

TERROR TEENS; When I was 18, living on my own with a bean bag, I confess to thinking I would go back to the Mother Country if there was a Revolution against Margaret Thatcher’s regime!

My husband said the same thought had occurred to him! We had so much in common…It was on the long Australia Day weekend we got married 1984.

Then a funny thing happened on our belated honeymoon, entering Bali in 1984. Fatefully a Denpasar Airport officer said we didn’t have a re-entry Visa so wouldn’t be able to get back into Australia!

But we ‘re Australians. We live there! My baby is going to be born at the Queen Vic birth centre in 4 months!

The advice was to go to the Australian Embassy as soon as we settled into our hotel. A kindly official informed us she would issue a temporary visa but we would need an Australian passport with Australian Citizenship even if we had emigrated in 1964 and 1978 on a family passport.

Nobody had told us we could be deported. Nobody told us we’d be put in a detention centre and sent back to that cramped, grey Thatcherite non-society. To be frank, I had to be pragmatic without knowing the word; I put my hand up to God and the Queen. 

Australian Citizenship but did I renounce my British citizenship? I can’t remember….


Like the Sex Pistols – I CARED FOR NEITHER OF THEM. 


chief political journalist for the Guardian, Catherine Murphy.  She looks like she might have dual nationality, very Irish looking like my mum!

Is our Federal Government imploding? What is the answer to all this mess? Sharman like I would consult with my ancestor whose name was Catherine Murphy:

THE ANSWER, she said IS AN AUSTRALIAN REPUBLIC – A NEW ANTHEM, NEW FLAG. I see it blowing in the wind… AND I added, Turn a new leaf on the recycled paper to compliment the Commonwealth with a Bill/Charter of Rights…

Make the young people proud like they are in the Irish Republic, guiding the Australian tourists with Irish roots around the old Oppressor’s administration, Dublin Castle; and this is a portrait of our elected President….

In one night the solution rung true, to rescue our social democracy for our grandchildren’s fulfilment of their dreams – A decent income for your labours in a dream home with a pool in a sunny climate, and enough spare to use your 12 weeks long service leave to visit family and friends stuck in the Mother Country. It’s a basic desire. Natural to a migrant nation.

Be Honourable M.P.s. What do our babies need to nurture them? A Climate change not above another 1.5 degrees! Global Seas are increasing in warmth, and there are too many naysayers being believed.

For our kids, please Leave Coal in the Ground. The Future is Now with Renewable energy…

Families could thrive below global 2 degrees rise. Protect us. Plant native Trees! Plant Blue gum for the Koalas now! 


Save animals in our picture books from extinction.
Protect the ecology of land and ocean. Don’t sacrifice our well-being to amoral coal capitalism. Save our Souls from destructive storms and acid seas. 

Why is this important?

All our Aussie babies have a Right to develop in a natural environment where wonder and curiosity of life is not destroyed by man-made carbon pollution but harnessing and storing the Sun.
Babies require people to provide a safe place to live, for our Parliamentarians to be ecological public servants for the Commonwealth. Be Honourable!

You would rather a climatic catastrophe when jobs will be washed out?


Happy Birthday Catherine Willett,  my grandson’s 3rd great grandmother. 1st generation born Glengallen Station, Allora nr Warwick, Queensland, Australia – August, 1871. 

Willit Catherine
1876, born at Glengallen Station, daughter of the Stockman, George Willett.

 via Allora | Queensland Places   

I’ve discovered a branch of my daughter’s ‘ in-laws’ ancestry comes from a long line of labouring, farming stock of Buckinghamshire, England. They were the white foundation Colonialists dreaming of landing a prosperity unobtainable in the Mother country.

Queensland was New South Wales until 1859. Federation of the Commonwealth at the beginning of Queensland’s white history. When Catherine was born on Glengallen Station the big house was being built with the profits of merino wool.Glengallon

Bounded in the north by the Bunya Mountains, in the east by the Great Dividing Range and in the west by the Condamine River, the Darling Downs area had been home for thousands of years to the Keinjan, Giabal, Jarowair and Barunggam Aboriginal people, who practiced a burning season to manage the grasses of the plains.

The first European to sight the Darling Downs was explorer and botanist Allan Cunningham in 1827, who named the district after Sir Ralph Darling, Governor of New South Wales. He had his first view of the country from the top of the range on 5th June 1827.

ENGLISH ROOTS: BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, ENGLAND.  Catherine’s father was GEORGE WILLETT who was 8 YEARS of age when his family boarded the St. Vincent at Deptford dock, London in 1844.

Children were charged 9shillings one way and adults 12shillings. Agricultural labourers were the desired types to develop the black soil of SE Queensland, then part of the colony of New South Wales.

5.30am foreboding in furry slippers,

signals war and peace; a Government’s

Good old cause;

before Dawn on winter morn,

Cars zoom past a once rural track,

Headlights beam early-shift alarms

Route to Amberley air-base, 

where powerful hornets are taking-off

on a mission.



My brain provoked to write a chapter

Where ancient transport is your legs

Marching from one end of the fractured

Kingdom to another – carts carry pikes,

muskets and drums

to where cousins pitch battle

Across Crown lands with bibles 

in pockets.


5.45a.m. before sun-rise, hearing

long steady jet bellows overhead,

Five orange lights flashing within moist 

Clouds; noisy machines controlled by

Young Pilots trained for flight in strict

Formation, a deadly force which can

Drop bombs from a great height. 

G20 HAMBURG Putin and Trump keeping the Peace…


Allied to mutual Destruction our warriors

May not realise their DNA origins were

Down there in the cradle of civilisation.

100 years ago Lawrence of Arabia had a

sense of being at Home there being a Hero “Scientifically shattering” many bridges.

t e lawrence

Legacy ; link to the Queensland Times report on why all the noise….


Lest we forget that Re-drawing of Middle Eastern

Maps in Westminster; war-weary forebears 

Came home to rationed hearths, arriving

as shells of former selves with

Little words left to review the theatre of 

War to the wife, perhaps a brief mention

you saw your German cousins shooting

Dutifully across the trenches,

when it was only a few Summers

since your families had picnics.


She said, ‘Men, God created them,

then He ordered an eternity of

Chains of command for times of

War and times of Peace.


Under the flight path,

my dwelling is a humble

Plot of Paradise, 

Natural light shows soft rain-fall

On freshly bought native grasses

Of Kangaroo Paw, Lomandra variations,

Paper Daisies.

I will grow beauty around me like

A garden in ancient Babylon, or a

Quaker’s conscience, echoing

Voltaire’s wisdom 

His pragmatic solution to never-

Ending scraps and weapons of

Mass destruction, to

Candidly get out of the

Arms race, the mad-made farce

And be happy hippies cultivating

The garden restoring an Eden on 

Earth with Mass plantings.

 Munch poppies.jpg
by Edvard Munch


It is 7.00am It is Light, so is the

Bird song. I am grateful to be

reminded to buy a rain-water

storage tank, replenish the soil

with compost because

Mother Nature likes to be nourished

And I have been forewarned by Enlightened

Souls who study, to be prepared for

Global warming threat.

Elected Members of Parliament are supposed to be smart! At their request they can have access to any established facts and argument from specialised Scientists, but instead  the Dishonourable MP’s have wilfully been cutting the ranks of expertise(CSIRO), and listening to the lobbyists of the fossil fuel industry.

Money is the root of all evil? The Conservative coalition in power in Australia is taking us backward, pre-Unionisation of the 19th century. My family pedigree is at the bottom of the coal pit, in the cradle of the industrial revolution.

So when our kids learn the physics of climate change, and roam around the world via wi-fi to find reputable information about the situation of global warming now and predicted, the cracks in the generation gap will become a lot wider.

A law penalising Parliamentarian’s wilful deceit, greed, and negligence on issues like fossil fuels effects should happen now! At least the Federal and State ALP were making inroads to acting to prevent the worst of global warming.

Be Prepared! We got solar panels, insulation, curtains with some financial rebates, and I can report Renewable energy and energy conservation are starting to pay off in our household.

It is possible to reduce energy bills. and care for our children’s future in harmony with our knowledge of Physics and Nature – that’s what 250 years of curiosity and understanding have revealed!
