Roger Migently

Roger Migently (Sir) was born - miraculously fully-grown - in September 2006 into a world in a frenzy of shameless political hijacking of "Australian values" by politicians who, at the same time, were trashing the real values like decency, generosity and compassion. Knowing he must stand up and do something Sir Roger sat down, created Values Australia - the website of the Department of Mateship and Fair Dinkum Australian Values - and blogged, sometimes with ridicule, sometimes seriously, but always truthfully (as he saw it). He has survived government legal threats and enjoyed the encouragement of many people he respects and admires. He frequently claims full credit for the defeat of the Howard government.
