Better protection needed for Sydney`s water catchments! In recent editorials I have expressed concern about how big should Sydney be. One of the problems with an excessively large city is water supply. Sydneysiders enjoy wonderful water quality and we want to keep it that way.  A recent Court ruling upholding the right of an underground coal mine near Lithgow to discharge water daily into the Warragamba catchment has caused concern for some people, including members of Environment groups the Blue Mountains Conservation Society, the Nature Conservation Council and 4Nature. In recent days the NSW Land and Environment Court has

Yesterday I asked the question, how big should Sydney be? NSW Planning Minister Rob Stokes seems to accept the forecast that in 2036 Sydney will have a population of 6.42 million, with the population of NSW jumping by 2.7 million, to almost 10 million.  2.1 million of the increase – that is seventy four percent or about three quarters is going to be in Sydney.  I made the point that it would be better for everyone if three quarters of the population increase were to take place in rural and remote New South Wales.  I also predicted that on

Today, let’s ask the question, how big should Sydney be? The Sydney Morning Herald of September 12 carried an article by Jacob Saulwick and  Kieran Gair headed  “Sydney population booms and the only way is up and in”.  From the article we learned that the population of Sydney is surging faster than predicted, putting more pressure on the city`s already-stretched housing and transport needs.  NSW Planning Minister Rob Stokes spins this news as a symptom of Sydney`s success with the release by the State Government of figures showing the city`s population is expected to leap by more than 2.1

The Lobbyist register maintained by the NSW Electoral Commission lists 143 entities.  They include Capital Hill Advisory Services Pty Ltd, whose principals are former State Parliamentarian Michael Photios and former Johnson & Johnson employee and Party President Nicholas Campbell.  For many years Campbell and Photios pretended to be leaders of opposing factions in the Liberal Party, but as their commercial alliance demonstrates, in Liberal Party factional battles questions like ideology and political viewpoints count for nothing.  It is all about the money. On this program we have discussed the malign influence within the NSW Liberal Party of high-flying political

Yesterday I raised the issue of the Greens staging a pre-planned walkout during Pauline Hanson’s first speech last week.  The Greens came seriously unstuck. What was obvious to everyone is that the Greens just hate the idea of anyone saying anything to contradict their own twisted view of the world.  And why is it that the Greens are so keen to defend Moslems from even gentle criticism? The Greens are hostile to our Christian civilisation, and they instinctively ally themselves with anyone else who is hostile to Christian civilisation. Following yesterday’s editorial I received a flood of favourable comment,

Last week on Wednesday 14 September, Senator Pauline Hanson delivered her First Speech to the Senate.  Senators of the Australian Greens staged a pre-planned walk out during the speech, just at the point when Senator Hanson was warning that Australia was under threat from Sharia Law.  As the Greens senators rose from their seats and filed out behind her, Pauline Hanson was saying:  “Radicalisation is happening on our streets, suburbs, in mosques. Yet our leaders continue to tell us to be tolerant and embrace the good Muslims.” The leader of the Greens Senator Richard Di Natale tweeted shortly afterwards:

Australia on the Road to Nowhere

The Daily Mail Australia reported a pregnant woman walking in south east Melbourne was attacked by a number of thugs believed to be from Melbourne’s African Apex gang. The masked men were armed with a baseball bat, axe and hammer. It is believed that the same gang is responsible for an attempted carjacking earlier in the evening. Why do authorities allow these violent delinquents to remain in Australia? The question we should ask is “Why did the government allow them visas in the first place”? – Maybe we should ask the Greens! How much more violence and intimidation do

Failing World Governments – Social Disorder and Poverty

It’s quite obvious to the majority of the population of the world that the main reason for social disorder and poverty around the globe is that governments are failing to provide the necessary conditions for a peaceful and prosperous life. Take a look back throughout recent global history but more importantly Australia’s recent past. Poverty existed then and is now, with no apparent answer other than to donate to charities and provide more services to cope with an ever increasing demand. The retiring Reserve Bank chief Glenn Stephens made some comment to the effect that Australia has been in

GRANT GOLDMAN EDITORIAL 6 September 2016 On Tuesday 16 August I drew to your attention the news that the popular New Zealand actor Sam Neill had ridiculed the Baird Government’s decision to close down the NSW Greyhound Racing industry. You will remember that this program was first to highlight the weakness of the Government’s case for relying on the McHugh report, and it was a pleasure to see that other broadcasters followed suit. From the beginning we raised the possibility that the Baird government’s declaration of war on the Greyhound Racing Industry might be motivated by some factor other

Other broadcasters took up the matter, and now a common topic of discussion across the State is the Premier`s claim to be concerned about the welfare of greyhounds and his decision to shut down the industry, supposedly because of those concerns. Critics have noted that the Premier is a great deal less concerned about the thousands
