PM Ben Chifley and grandfather 1946

In 1946, my paternal grandfather, Eric Harding OBE MM, was President of the Limbless Soldiers Association of Australia. He was severely wounded under artillery fire in northern France during WWI, and had to have a leg amputated.

As the caption on the cartoon says, the then Prime Minister of Australia, Ben Chifley presented the first post-war Ford V8 car produced in Australia to my grandfather on behalf of the  Limbless Soldiers Association, to be used to transport limbless soldiers around.

Opinions and free speech

Someone once said that defending an opinion by citing the right to free speech is sort of the ultimate concession  – you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express it.

Charlie Hebdo resurrection

ABC NEWS 13 January 2015: The latest front page of Charlie Hebdo has been released, showing the Prophet Mohammed holding a Je Suis Charlie sign under the banner “All is forgiven”. This week’s publication, the first issue of the French satirical weekly since last Wednesday’s deadly attack in Paris, will be offered in 16 languages. The surviving members of the magazine prepared the edition in the offices of French newspaper Liberation, which said three million copies would be printed – [100 times the usual sales of 30,000 copies]. “Charlie Hebdo will be in kiosks this Wednesday, January 14. Like it is every week,” Liberation said.
