The Canberry Tales

Salacious Satire from the Culture Wars

The latest hilarious collection of Rowan Dean’s weekly satirical columns in the AFR Weekend poking fun at the craziness of political correctness gone mad, cancel culture and woke identity politics in Australia’s modern political world from 2017 to the present, including the demise of Malcolm Turnbull, the rise of ScoMo, Biden, Covid, China, climate change, the MeToo movement, transgenderism and so much more. Aided by his trusted assistant Rowena, Rowan Dean exposes in all its comical cultural chaos the hypocrisy and foibles of our ruling classes, the peccadilloes of our pusillanimous politicians and the absurdity of today’s leftist woke dogma. From re-imagining Dr Seuss, re-writing ‘Gone with the Woke’, uncovering the racists in the Palace, to exposing the lunacy of lockdowns and the lewd tales of Canberra, not since Chaucer has an author had such rich pickings with which to entertain us.
