China’s Australian Cyber Attack

#China #Economy #Espionage Claims have been made that China was responsible for a recent cyber attack on the Australian Parliament and major political parties. Naturally, because our economy is so dependant on China our leaders were apparently instructed to not raise this issue in public.

Licencing for Developers

#AusPOL #Development #Construction The ACT Labor Labor Conference has called for the introduction of a licencing scheme for developers.

I am also worried that it will act as gatekeeping and restrict […]

Dodgy Child Care Centres

#AusPol #ChildCare #DayCare Dodgy Child Care Centres have been costing the federal government over 670 million dollars and help fund terrorist and bikie gangs. Is this just part of the deadweight loss when the government get involved in an industry? How could NSW let people set-up a child care centre online? (Note: please forgive some […]

Election 2019 – Political Violence in Australia

#Election2019 #ShiftTheWindow #AusPol Sadly our recent federal election has seen some acts of political violence that are very unusually for Australia. Can you guess which side the violence is coming from?

Kerri-Anne and Labor’s National Gender Commission

Election2019 #ShiftTheWindow #AusPol Recently Kerri-Anne Kennerley warned her audience that “If Bill Shorten gets in, it’s the end of life as we know it,”. While it may seem hyperbolic, her concerns about Labor’s obsession with identity politics and their desire to establish a National Gender Centre and New Commissioner seems warranted. We look a clip […]

Labor’s Plan to Destroy another Industry

#AusPol #SheepExport #Labor It looks like Labor is planning to destroy another Australian Industry, regardless of attempts to mitigate activists concerns. Exactly what we need with an impending recession.

Labor’s Promises to Casual Workers

#AusPol #Recession #Election2019 Bill Shorten is making promises to casual workers to provide them with a smoother pathway to permanent positions. Sounds great but might end up hurting more than helping. I would prefer more support for small businesses or addressing the issues of labour-hire companies. Where people employed are de-facto employees of a third […]
