    Will Ian "Molly" Meldrum ever work for Channel 7 again?

    In front of a room full of supporters, Ian Meldrum affectionately known as Molly walked slowly to the front and took a seat in front of a microphone.

    His reason for attending the Readings Bookstore on Acland Street, St Kilda tonight was to launch his second book - "Ah well, Nobody's Perfect - the untold stories"

    Most men don’t realise age is a factor in their fertility too

    In a recent survey, most men didn’t think their age was a big factor in their fertility

    Most people want to have children sometime in their life and expect this will happen when the time is right for them.

  • THE STATE OF PLAY

    THE STATE OF PLAY





    Let me break the news to those who haven’t awakened yet to the terrible reality of politics. There is no Left or Right anymore. There is just the craven lust for power and to keep the globalists happy in their bid to create a New World Order.
