‘Fire Sale Mike’ endorses Gladys Bairdjiklian’s policy direction.  As reported in the Daily Telegraph of September 1st [page 23] “Baird our premier dad”; it warns others not to put their careers ahead of family, by Annabel Hennessy. Bambi said he had been watching from afar and thought Gladys Berejiklian was doing an awesome job. Why is the immediate-past former Premier so supportive of Gladys?  Probably because they are one in the same. She is following his policies. Despite this, when Baird’s hand-picked successor took over his reign as Premier [and conveniently, whilst rival Premiership aspirant Doctor ROB STOKES was

Powerhouse saga continues; this is what we have been commenting on for past 6 months. NSW lurches from unnecessary crises to crises, of their own doing and most likely will continue up until to the 2019 state election as the government appears unable to help itself. Council amalgamations, failed greyhound racing ‘reforms’ and ultimately the continued unravelling Powerhouse Museum saga.   SMH front page Tuesday, August 29th; “Billion-dollar Power trip” by correspondent, Nick O`Malley illustrates how NSW stands accused of excessive secrecy through its decision for the wholesale relocation of Ultimo’s Powerhouse Museum to Parramatta. Expert witnesses appearing before an

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

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

‘Fire sale Baird’ at it again. As Reported in the Weekend Australian’s Business Review of July 22; Page 25 “Banker Baird wants piece of US infrastructure action” by Andrew White. This is further illuminated again in the July 22nd Sydney Morning Herald’s Business day [page 3]; entitled “Baird eyes gains from asset recycling” by Clancy Yeates.  The former premier kicked off a massive wave of privatisations and infrastructure buildings, and now as a banker Mike Baird is hoping to repeat the ploy on an unassuming international stage.  He helped pioneer asset recycling by privatising the NSW public’s assets such

Grant Goldman Editorial for January 31 2017

Just eleven sleeps ago on January the 18th, 2017 then NSW Premier Mike Baird stunned the NSW public by resigning virtually without notice. He has since left parliament and his former electorate office lays abandoned of its elected representative and it is now awaiting an incoming member of parliament to be decided at a soon to be held forthcoming by-election. What caused this unexpected political meltdown? A Personal Breakdown of sorts? If so, not unlike John Brogden before him; he deserves our empathy, understanding and best personal wishes given the harshness that public life exerts on ones’ family. Not
