800 Deaths – Social media campaign to prosecute Victorian Government

Friday, December 18, 2020

Today (18 December) we launch our social media campaign to ‘encourage’ WorkSafe Victoria to prosecute the Victorian government over the hotel quarantine disaster. Prosecution must occur. More...


800 deaths – The facts are clear. The Vic government must be prosecuted

Friday, December 18, 2020

It would be dangerous to forget or ignore that 800 people died due to the Victorian government’s hotel quarantine disaster. We cannot simply ‘move on’ and pretend that 800 people did not die. That’s dangerous. That’s unsafe.

That’s why today we’re launching the next phase of our campaign to push for the prosecution of the Victorian government under work safety laws. More...


Scary! Victoria’s second attempt at hotel quarantine starts today. Will it be safe????

Monday, December 07, 2020

Today, Monday 7 December, is a rather scary day for Victorians and all Australians. Today is the day that the Victorian government restarts the hotel quarantine program for overseas travellers. The big question is: How safe will this quarantine program be?

The three hotels to open immediately include the Park Royal Airport, Transit Sunshine and Airport T2. Another six hotels are planned to be opened over the next two weeks leading into Christmas. In addition, The Alfred is running two ‘MediHotels, the Novotel Southwharf for complex care and Holiday Inn Flinders Lane for Covid-positive people. One hundred and sixty travellers are expected to arrive daily.  More...


The Andrews government should stop picking on the Islamic community over Covid

Monday, October 26, 2020

In the latest of a series of swipes at the Victorian Islamic community, the Dan Andrews government has blamed a Somali family and their Islamic school for the spread of Covid. The family, backed by the community, has hit back saying it’s the government’s fault.

The government’s attack against the community is occurring because the government is trying to deflect blame away from itself for causing the latest Covid outbreak of last week. This has resulted in the continuing Melbourne lockdown. More...


We seek investigation of union involvement in hotel quarantine breaches

Monday, September 28, 2020

This morning we released our analysis that explains ‘nothing’—that is, why all senior Victorian government people say they ‘know nothing’ about who made the decision to use security firms for the hotel quarantine program. Yet evidence from the Coate Inquiry points directly to Victorian Trades Hall Council (VTHC) unions as the probable decision-maker/s.

Given the government’s ‘know nothing’ excuses, the possibility that unions made the decision is the most plausible explanation ‘left on the table’. Evidence submitted to the Inquiry points directly to VTHC. More...


We explain ‘nothing’: Why every Victorian Minister and bureaucrat says they ‘know nothing’

Monday, September 28, 2020

“I saw nothing. I heard nothing. I know nothing.” This is the recurring theme that has been the hallmark of the Coate inquiry into the Covid-19 Victorian hotel quarantine failures.

Every senior responsible bureaucrat, Minister and the Premier himself has said, under oath, that they have no idea who or how the decision was made to use private security firms to manage the hotel quarantine. Yet this ‘nothing’ decision resulted in the Victorian Covid-19 outbreak and some 765 deaths to date.

Given that everyone knows ‘nothing’, this ‘nothing’ needs an explanation.  More...


Victoria Covid-19 down. That’s good. Victoria Dictatorship up. That’s bad

Monday, September 21, 2020

Victorians and all Australians will be pleased to see that the Victorian Covid-19 infection rate is finally falling. This raises hope that the Melbourne and Victorian lockdowns will ease up, enabling the local and national economy to move into recovery. Let’s hope.

However, while the infections are falling, Premier Dan Andrews is extending his dictatorship powers in a big way. The term ‘dictatorship’ is not used flippantly. It accurately describes the ‘Emergency Power’ laws passed in early September. These laws: More...


Victoria – the fix. We explain how and why. But it won’t happen

Tuesday, September 08, 2020

For any Australian not living in Victoria, particularly Melbourne, it’s impossible to understand what’s going on. The high-pitched hysteria emanating from the state is effectively the cry of a people who’ve now realised that they are living in a third-world-like failed state.

The closing of Victoria by the Andrews Labor government is the direct result of one thing—a chaotic collapse of Victoria’s health administration—in other words, state failure! More...


Could Dan Andrews face industrial manslaughter investigation?

Thursday, August 13, 2020

SEA Executive Director Ken Phillips has an article in today's Spectator discussing the application of Victorian Worksafe laws to the hotel quarantine mess. In this special blogpost we republish the article in full: More...


Dan Andrews (Victoria) declares war on small business – ‘destroy em’ they say!

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Yesterday the Victorian Labor government released its report into the ‘gig economy.’ The 228-page report should be read as a declaration of war against self-employed, small business people across Victoria, and Australia. This is so because a key recommendation calls for laws that would effectively make self-employment illegal.  More...
