About Subversive

There is something just not right about our world and it involves the self centred, self serving nature of people.


Each week I provide 10 clues. Guess right and you could win a a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot.

Every Friday for 12 weeks, I will be giving away a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot. At the close of business each Friday - until December 1, 2017 - I will draw a winner. Entrants must be aged over 18 and a resident of Australia.
