POLITICIANS MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

When I look at the waste and mismanagement of politicians who should be and must be setting examples for the generations to come, I shudder to see what legacies we are leaving for them to struggle with. The decisions being made, and have been made by government over the past five (5) years must make [...]

Australia v China

As we enter 2021 in the wake of this terrible virus pandemic and with the trade with China under real strain, I have to ask myself am I being naive to think that the more we trade with China the more they will embrace our values of freedom and democracy? I look at recent history [...]

Leadership or Lack thereof

Come on Australia, you like me must be absolutely sick and tired of our political environment when our great country is begging for leadership which can inspire our future generations.

Future Challenges

After hearing that 40,000 people had already decided to pack up and leave Victoria for other states and better business opportunities, it has now come to light that there could be a series of multi- million dollar lawsuits over coronavirus restrictions. These actions could well cripple the state and be financially adverse to all Victorians [...]

What does the Future hold?

During this challenging time which is pandemic related I thought I would give my take on what the situation may be and where we go as a nation from here. As I do, this it is important for me to say that this is an a-political assessment based on my experiences over many years and [...]

Victoria’s Lockdown = Australia’s Dilemma

We are all facing challenges today for various reasons but unfortunately we have leaders who make our tasks even more difficult when these are the people we should be looking to for helping us. Unfortunately, and through no fault of anyone apart from the Victorian government, we will see so may people not only losing [...]
