Is WorkSafe Victoria grossly incompetent or is something else going on?

Tuesday, June 29, 2021

Today, 29 June 2021, Victorian WorkSafe finally replied to us as to whether it is prosecuting the Victorian Government over the hotel quarantine deaths scandal.

Its reply? ‘We need more time!’ More...


How the ATO ‘manages’ parliament – ATO techniques as ‘lawmaker’

Sunday, June 20, 2021

In 2018, high-profile tax lawyer Mark Leibler stated that the ATO effectively makes tax law. He said:

“…for all intents and practical purposes, it’s effectively the (Tax) Commissioner who lays down the law.” “…Commissioner effectively continues to act as lawmaker…”
The accuracy of this statement can be seen, in part, in the way the ATO ‘manages’ its appearances before Parliamentary Committees. More...


Prosecution of the Victorian government – Update

Wednesday, June 02, 2021

With the fourth Covid lockdown in Victoria we’re being consistently asked where we are at with our campaign to prosecute the Victorian government over the quarantine OHS breaches.

Quite simply we are currently in a holding pattern. WorkSafe Victoria must reply to our original 29 September 2020 letter by 29 June this year. That’s WorkSafe’s deadlineMore...


More Victorian quarantine mess. The government puts people at risk. Where is WorkSafe?

Sunday, May 09, 2021

If you’ve been following the Victorian Hotel quarantine ‘mess’, you’ll be aware that we started our adverts on top rating Victorian radio station 3AW on 21 April. Those adverts finish this coming week. They simply call for WorkSafe Victoria to do its job and prosecute! More...


ATO relies on ‘gossip’ to manufacture tax debt, defiling the rule of law

Sunday, May 02, 2021

An April 2021 High Court outcome demonstrates that the ATO has chucked the rule of law into the bin. The ATO asserts that it can manufacture a tax debt based on gossip.

Between 2012 and 2015, criminals defrauded the ATO of at least $2.45 billion in GST in the ‘gold scam’. In happened arguably because of ATO incompetence. We’ve explained this before.  More...


Major radio media campaign starts. Victorian OHS Quarantine Prosecution

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

We’ve had fantastic support from lots of people in our campaign to push Victoria’s WorkSafe to investigate/prosecute the Victorian government over the failed 2020 Covid quarantine program. Remember, no-one should be above the law. 801 deaths cannot be ignored.

As a key part of that campaign, tomorrow, Wednesday 21 April, we launch a serious media campaign to push WorkSafe to do their job.

Tomorrow we begin a three-week breakfast radio advertising campaign on Melbourne’s top talk-back radio station, 3AW. More...

We have had a major development that we can report to you.

Late last week (4 March) we received a letter from WorkSafe Victoria confirming again that WorkSafe is investigating breaches of work health and safety laws related to the Hotel Quarantine Program. This is significant. Here are the core facts.  More...


ATO abusing its powers – manipulating the law to abuse people

Thursday, February 04, 2021

Our campaign to reform the ATO continues. Good grief it’s an exhausting process! But the ATO keeps demonstrating why the reform is needed because the ATO keeps behaving badly.

Today we’re highlighting another case of ATO bad behaviour.

Many small businesses are structured as trusts. Most are family trusts. The ‘beneficiaries’ of such trusts are typically family members. A trust can distribute profits to the beneficiaries who then pay the tax.  More...

This is an update on developments with efforts to prosecute the Victorian Government for the 800-plus Covid deaths due to its massive mismanagement, or worse.

Covid and the oppression of government regulation and regulators

Monday, January 18, 2021

As we look to 2021 to be a better year than 2020, perhaps one of the shocks of Covid-19 has been how quickly our freedoms and liberty have been crushed under the weight of health dictates. It’s been done for our own good—that is, to keep us all safe from a silent, unseen enemy killer.

With luck, we will emerge from the Covid crisis this year with freedoms being returned. One fear, however, is that once governments, whether of left or right persuasion, taste the seductive power of authoritarianism, they become addictively hooked. There’s nothing some bureaucrats love more than the scent of their own power first thing in the morning. More...
