Yesterday I posted all the grants schemes analysed. Now I am going to Post them one by one. Starting with the Sports administration Grants. Value $100 Million Image
This analysis took me 4 days because I had to manually check every electorate and Post code. (Did you know there are 17,500 postcodes in Australia?). Today is an interesting day as the Senate Select Committee into Sports Administration grants (Sports Rorts) sits at 2pm today..
If you want to watch go to the Watch Parliament web site and see them doing their thing. While you are at it, go and look at this web site…
It has a wealth of detail in it. Most interesting are Submission 14 By Professor Anne Twomey which discusses (very eloquently) the legality of the scheme. My submission is submission 52, which is a late acceptance but which looks at the Female facilities and Water safety stream
If you think the Sports rorts is dead and buried, think again.
My page of all the grants streams which contains the summaries of all the schemes in spreadsheet format and by electorate are available for download. (you have to become a member)

This is a pie chart of all the grants programs I have analysed from 2013 to 2020 (7 programs incl Sports rorts). The total value is $3,178,910,475 ($3.178 Billion Scholars)
The graph shows the reason why the Coalition are in power. Basically they are using our money to buy votes to get back on the Treasury benches. They use the tactics of the GOP in America, but they use Australians money to fund their objectives. Sports rorts was the tip of the
iceberg. it was only worth $100 million. Since the grant connect webpages where they report these grants have been live (1 Jan 2018) $45 billion in grants has been distributed by Government. So my $3 Billion has only looked at the tip. If you want to learn ,more Visit

As a result of listening to The ABC News breakfast this morning and the complete mischaracterisation of the Victorian second wave and the inane questions asked by the stand in presenter, I thought i would put a few things into context. Firstly has anyone heard of insurance?
I have and I understand it's a way to mitigate loss in times where the extra ordinary happen. Buying insurance involves some money and also a deal of planning. It's all about risk. So what do we do as a country when there is a risk? We make laws and we spend some money planning
all sorts of things to mitigate that risk. That is why we have a Police force,Border force and a whole raft of other forces who are there for when something might happen. So what did we do about Novel Viruses? In Feb 2003, we had Sars…

Send three and fourpence we are going to a dance. NSW stats last 24 hrs.
And here are the federal figures for the Last 24 hrs.
The message should be. "Send reinforcements we are going to advance" This is the competence of the liberals Both in NSW and federally. Can't even get their stories right.

I can't help thinking that Australia (under a completely incompetent Coalition Government(s)), always gets Australia into trouble. Think Vietnam, think Afghanistan, Think Iraq. The liberal Party and the nationals are gung Ho a bit like a b grade War Movie, where the war could
have been avoided with intelligence and a bit of quiet diplomacy. It's also the best economic option. It costs a lot less for a diplomatic post than an army, Navy and airforce. It's the same with the overboard World trade scheme. We allowed a very liberal Trade deal with China,
including allowing their nationals to come in and work on jobs in Australia. That side letter which Robb signed and which the liberals crowed about has now come back and bitten them (and Australians) in the arse. The whole trade deal has come crashing down around our ears. All

@TheRealPBarry 4 corners and Porter and Tudge goes way beyond Sexual stuff. What the program failed to highlight was that these people are the people who make the Laws which govern us. They are the people who had something to do with Robodebt and I remember a Judge recently
said something about Criminal behaviour in a court case by one of them as well. Tudge is interested in Education, It's his political thrust, Porter's is the Law. Both of them are in Senior positions in the government of the day and making decisions each day by regulation or
making laws in the parliament of Australia...about things which govern Australians lives. Laws are essentially about how the Population behaves in society generally. The norms of Society. We have certain accepted Social norms and also laws which we must obey, upon penalty of

@Gay_Alcorn @oz_f I will say this again. The press and journalists haven't changed with the times. You write a whole load of Opinion based articles with no reference to where you formed those opinions. What you fail to realise in the new Digital Age people can actually go to the source documents
@Gay_Alcorn @oz_f and read them. We can go to the hotel inquiry and read all of the documents there. That wasn't covered up. It was set up by the Premier. It's an independent inquiry. We can read all of the statements and the circumstances surrounding the setting up of a State based
