Where are we going Australia?

Oh what a parlous state we are in where all Australians should worry and start questioning why governments are never held accountable for their respective actions/decisions until election times when they get thrown out and then sit back on their huge separation packages.

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.

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.

Where has Victoria gone?

I have had the pleasure of doing business in Victoria for many years now and once felt a sense of pride to say that this great state was one equal to anywhere else in the world. In fact Victoria was fast on track to surpass some of the best industrialized countries. However, since the onset [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
