Is NSW on its way to becoming a ‘failed state’? I will outline some recent core examples of alarming mismanagement of community assets being engineered by an irresponsible, unintelligent NSW government which is leading its Citizens’ into a debt ridden, proto-Argentinian ‘hunger games’ future of economic chaos. The unnecessary ‘knee jerk’ total removal of the powerhouse Museum from Ultimo at a staggering estimated cost to State taxpayers’ of around One Billion dollars; and actively encouraged by the Daily Telegraph’s interstate WA originated NSW political reporter who seemingly ignores positive advantages of the current Museum site’s proximity to international hotels

The simmering South China Sea dispute between Mainland China and various Asian Countries is, with the exception of Islamic Terror and Kim’s bizarre North Korea, one of Australia’s most inescapable security challenges to be faced by our people since the end of World War II  that saw surrender by the Japanese empire. At stake is our long term security relationship with the United States’ and our ineludible trade relationship with the PRC; both demanding greater commitments from Australia which risk becoming mutually exclusive. The Americans were less than impressed following the yet to be properly explained Coalition blessed sale

Australia, the land of Kookaburra laughter After reading an article in Wednesday’s Daily Telegraph entitled “No respect in equality” I thought I was in ‘coo-coo’ land waking up from some hallucinatory substance in total disbelief of the stupidity of society today. The article stated that the trade unions, apparently utterly hijacked by social justice warriors and in another moment of insanity, decided to pressure Australia Post into boycotting delivering “No” campaign material relating to the bizarre same sex marriage ABS postal survey. Wait for it, it gets better; vulnerable unionists’ evident reason for this outrageous bullying tactic is that

Here’s why we need a federal ICAC  Yesterday, in this segment I reported on the Senator Pauline Hanson’s valiant and well publicised attempts to bring to the attention of the Australian political elite the issue of security risks posed by the Burqa. A garment that is alien to most Australian citizens. Today, I wish to illuminate another issue of paramount importance to our fast disappearing democracy. Thanks to a valuable and well considered contribution by another independent Senator. She’s a genuine ‘true blue’ Aussie and Tasmanian, the Honourable Jacqui Lambie. It could be that Clive’s political legacy is that

All of us are aware of defining events which changed or made history.  I’ll mention just a few. On December 16, 1773 the Boston Tea Party led to the American War of Independence which has profoundly interested human events for nearly three and a half centuries. On 16 July 1833, thanks to the tireless efforts of William Wilberforce, the Abolition of Slavery Bill passed its third reading in the House of Commons. On the 24th of October 1889 in Tenterfield just South of the Border between New South Wales and Queensland, Sir Henry Parks made a speech calling for Federation

Greens Hyperventilating Hanson-Young of the Greens party is waffling again. This time she’s lost the plot reportedly saying “You are putting the entire country at risk” reacting to Senator Pauline Hanson wearing a burqa in parliament to demonstrate the fact that this type of head wear is a security risk. It was reported Hanson-Young continued her tirade with “You are doing ISIS’s work for them.” “You are putting the entire country at risk.” She also told Senator Hanson that the next terrorist attack would be “on your head”. Hanson-Young appears to be somewhat disturbed with her over the top

Foreigners’ parliament The Commonwealth shadow foreign affairs minister Penny Wong (and a former trade spokesperson) has signalled in past media reports that an incoming ALP Shorten administration would embrace the globally ambitious Chinese ‘One belt – One road’ initiative which, if enacted, might jeopardise long standing security arrangements between the US and Australia; Darwin Port’s surrender notwithstanding. Australian’s have recently learned that not all Chinese trade is beneficial to our nation and given our haste to chase a fast buck, the Chinese Peoples’ Republic will likely continue relying on the exercise by them of non-tariff trade barriers as an

Inspiring Social Discord

Freedom but at what expense? Freedom is one wonderful benefit of living in Australia. Look around the world at the repressive regimes delivering poverty and misery to their peoples. We should be embracing the positive aspects of our country but sadly sections of our community delight in creating division. Since the advent and explosion of social media all it takes is a few frustrated thoughtless people to post vexing comments on the likes of Facebook and Twitter and before you’ve finished your coffee the world is awakened to like-minded individuals, some of whom push their agenda into the political

Politicisation of Lifestyle Choices: LGBTIHJXYZ………? Human beings are forever making personal choices, choices about where they live, the car they drive, the food they eat, who to bank with, which horse to back and the list goes on. Just imagine if all these choices were subject to political discussion and choices were made by a group of elected politicians, what a shemozzle that would create, parliament would grind to a halt, although it’s not far from that now with all the childish bickering and posturing carry on. Add to the list culture and gender wars and a subject that

This is a variety programme and occasionally during this segment I like to talk about personal health. Especially, as we age our continued health is of prime importance to all of us. I therefore want to combine a little lighthearted banter with some serious topics of general concern. Ever feel lightheaded on the toilet? Constipation increases dramatically as you age and can be especially problematic during your senior years. But this becomes much more than an embarrassing problem when you consider that your cardiovascular risk is rising right along with it. It’s the constipation/heart attack connection that most people

Prakash Nation Yesterday I spoke about our Nation’s defence. In particular, our need to be equipped with economically viable military hardware and other capabilities against the threat of covetous nation states. However, in this era of asymmetric threats we need to be vigilant and prepared for the very real spectre of terrorism; especially of the extremist Islamist variant. An Australian man and so-called senior member of the Islamic State group is Abu Khaled al-Cambodi, or Neil Prakash. He was Melbourne born to a Cambodian mother and Fijian father.

Submarines Australians are getting fed up with a Defence Force which is concentrating on social engineering instead of doing its job. The job of the Defence Forces is to make certain that any potential enemy thinking of attacking Australia must know that they will be destroyed if they try it. The ADF exists to keep us safe.  The ADF does not exist for the purpose of encouraging gender reassignment.  It does not exist for the purpose of boosting the number of women who can be put at risk of being killed or maimed or raped in warfare.  The ADF

Death by Green-Tape Delay There was a time, before the baby-boom generation, generation X and Millennials’ took over, when we took pride in the achievements of our builders, producers and innovators. There was always great celebration when settler families got a phone, a tractor, a bitumen road or electric power. An oil strike or a gold discovery made headlines, and people welcomed new businesses, new railways and new inventions. Science and engineering were revered and the wealth delivered by these human achievements enabled the builders and their children to live more rewarding lives, with more leisure time available for

A Nation Asleep It appears that while ever fringe issues dominate the fast paced news and current affairs cycle, so many more meaty matters are being left unventilated, undebated and unaddressed by mainstream society and allowing pollies cover to covertly pass other items through the parliament and the executive branch of government. Political correctness and virtue signalling by social justice warriors have repressed established community. There is now incredible unease being felt by many listeners who are ignored at the expense of radical social ideologies and who are subdued by neo-liberal economic practices.

Politicising the Powerhouse and Parramatta Part 2 (Part 1) Yesterday, I identified subjective media coverage by the Telegraph newspaper as bearing significant influence for the unexpected knee-jerk Powerhouse about face by the Premier. The resultant complete removal of the iconic Powerhouse museum from Ultimo to Parramatta could cost up to a billion taxpayer dollars plus putting at serious risk the future of an existing historic buildings as well as potential for damage of irreplaceable displays likely incurred during transportation. At no stage did the newspaper acknowledge the existing rich and underutilised cultural heritage already present in Parramatta, such as

Sydney’s ‘Powerhouse Museum’ and our fast disappearing heritage. Part 1 Officially named as the museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, is the affectionately known Sydney Powerhouse Museum; which since 1988 has happily occupied the site from which it has been dubbed the Powerhouse; an historic 1902 converted electric tram power station in the Inner West Sydney suburb of Ultimo. Another branch of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences is located in the nearby Sydney Observatory. The museum’s main Ultimo site houses a diverse collection of technology encompassing decorative arts, science, communication, transport, costume, furniture, media, computer technology as

Propaganda Nation: There is more hype being pumped from the refuse of all political party ranks and big business than at any other time in our once great nation’s young history. We are being saturated with a constant stream of fake news drivel by mainstream media outlets as well as being subjugated by greedy, power hungry and untrustworthy individuals whose hidden agendas are dangerous for the survival of Australian society as we remember it from our earlier more prosperous years past. In support of my remarks; just take a look at the NBN (National Broadband Network) roll out. It

Dangerous Rule: Australia really has become decadent and immoral with brainless Pollies leading the way. The well Recognised and acceptable social values which we have embraced since the end of the Second World War are being undermined by anti-Christian exponents in favour of the destruction of mainstream social norms and our family values. It was reported in Queensland’s The Daily Mail that, “The Backward State” is actively considering banning Christian references from school events and playgrounds in sweeping atheistic changes to education practices. It’s hard to believe that the Queensland government is entertaining such bizarre and draconian ideas. Those
