Values Australia is a website from the Department of Mateship and Fair Dinkum Values, its motto being 'Keeping Australia's reputation safe through well managed constraints on freedom of speech'.
Does that sound like an official Australian Government site to you? Deputy Secretary, Bob Correll, of the Department of Immigration and Citizenship thought it could be confused for a real government department and wrote to Values Australia, complaining that the site may be misleading and offensive and could "seriously damage" Australia's international reputation.
Values Australia responded in part: The Department does not need Values Australia to damage Australia’s reputation overseas. Your department, in particular, in hand with the Attorney General’s Department and the Department of Foreign Affairs have been “seriously damaging” Australia’s reputation overseas for some years.
Your department’s ministerially admitted and well-documented dysfunctional corporate culture, characterised by callous disregard for humanity, basic morality and decency (all until fairly recently basic Australian values), and the astonishing ineptitude and resultant shameless blameshifting and denial which are so regularly publicly exposed - most recently in your new Minister’s embarrassment over Nauru, IOM and the UNHCR - have resulted all by themselves in immeasurably more damage to Australia’s reputation than the Values Australia website could possibly do if it wanted to, which it most definitely does not.
So just to re-iterate - Values Australia is entirely unconnected with the Australian Government or any of its agencies and wants nothing whatever to do with them.
It should however be required reading for all patriotic Aussies and those interested in Australia's political, social and cultural interests. While the archive will keep you amused, a daily blog keeps the pulse of the nation.
