This Sewer rat, who used, many years ago to be a police constable have questions about why the Investigation was closed. Apparently (I say apparently because the press dribble out information in the most desultory fashion and in no order) The Minister's complainant reported her
allegations to police in March 2020. First Question. What information did they write down. Then apparently again they were in touch with her 5 times before she dropped the complaint. Second Question, Where are the recorded notes of those interviews? Third Question, did she give
Police details from her diary? Did she write to them in emails describing the alleged rape? What did the police do? What didn't they do? All police have notebooks. The police Stations have an occurrence book which all visitors to the station are written into. The police who

This year is the 40 year that I have had Serious arthritis. Thankfully at the start of my illness with this very painful disease there was the Labor Government of Hawke and Keating. I was treated well by centrelink when I became too ill to work. in 1996 my life changed and I
became a pariah. I was treated with contempt and like I was some kind of criminal. There was no drug to treat my condition and as well as constant pain that was enhanced and exacerbated by the pain of Liberal government condemnation. You see the liberals don't believe in
disability, they believe in heartlessness and grinding people into the ground. During that time I was audited by centrelink 5 times in 18 months. First they would send me the papers and 3 months later they would sent them to my wife. The last audit was face to face ad when i

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 aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_…

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 who.int/health-topics/…

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
@Gay_Alcorn @oz_f quarantine system from scratch in 36 hours from 1pm on 27th march to 11.59 pm on 28th march. A responsibility which is normally a Commonwealth one. Yes I read the Section 51 of the constitution and also the biodiversity Act. I read the report of the learned Barrister/Commissioner

There is a whole load of Press going on at the Moment about @JennyMikakos and what she has said about @DanielAndrewsMP . Can I suggest that before making a judgement about all of this, people actually read Jenny's submission to the Hotel Inquiry. quarantineinquiry.vic.gov.au/sites/default/… ........
Its also a good idea to have in the back of your mind when reading it, the nature of the Pandemic and the Decision of National Cabinet to depart from the defined responsibilities of the Commonwealth under Section 51 of the constitution and the Biosecurity Act. Responsbility that
was devolved to the Victorian State Government and other State Governments by a decision of National Cabinet. Having cast off that responsibility, a time frame of 36 hours was defined for the Victorian Government to respond and set it up. Jenny's submission points out to the

Wow who was the reporter who was the Legal Expert on the Emergency management Legislation and the telecommunications interception Act federally? She also used the religion word Recant when asking Questions about commissioner crisp.
Ok lets pick apart the Question. The Question was (my words) Why shouldn't Andrew Crisp be stood down because he has a duty to brief the Minister under Section 32 of the Emergency Services Act 2013 and given he recanted his testimony to the Inquiry into Victoria's response
to covid 19. The transcript of which can be found here. parliament.vic.gov.au/paec/inquiries… The reporter also said under Section 29 the Commissioner could be stood down,Suspended or removed. She then asked Why Andrews doesn't have him removed. The Press conference link is here........

Some comments on the budget. We hear a lot of talk about plans and subsidies which will create Millions of Jobs. What we also hear are the words "jobs of the future" What does that mean? Well I don't think the Budget framers know what that means at all. Job creation depends on
Consumers consuming a product or a service. That product or service depends on the demand for it. The making of the product or service depends on the skills of the maker of the product and the price of the product or service depends on the cost inputs of the product or service..
In real marketing language, this is called a master budget, where the market is evaluated extensively, the opportunity is dissected in detail and the required skills and expertise to produce a quality outcome defined. NONE of this has been done by the Australian Government, they

I would just like to pen a message to all Journalists. I bought my first computer in 1981. It was a knock off of an Apple IIE, it had 5 inch floppy drive and Mouses weren't even a thing then someone said to me what can you do with that? And truth be known wasn't much. However...
39 years later. I look at my Personal computer and say "What can't I do with that" The Point of my little story is what Journalists call "The Digital Disruption" It is nothing of the sort, it's really the technological revolution, akin to the Industrial revolution which
began in 1700 when Jethro Tull invented the seed drill and continued through the Industrial revolution when the Steam engine was perfected and all sorts of machinery "disrupted" working conditions. And so today 39 years after the first O'Grady computer, the Newspaper are nearly

Last Evening the @abcnews reported that PPE was scarce in Hospitals and nursing homes. This morning along the bottom of the screen They reported Nurses and hospitals are finding difficulty getting PPE. I want to report some real news. ON Wednesday 5th August, I attended the
Heidelberg repatriation hospital for a procedure. (See appointment letter later in this thread). It was mylast three monthly check up after getting rid of bladder cancer. I now go to 6 monthly checks. When I arrived, there was only one area where I could enter the Centaur
building, It was staffed by Nurses with Scrubs, plastic over garments, masks and plastic visors as well as gloves. On the table was a box of surgical masks for patients if required. It was full (50 masks). I was checked for temperature and my details were taken. I was given a tag

I just want to make a couple of comments about the Stimulus packages under the Rudd government and how they were taken by the Press and also the coalition Government. Oh and I want to say also that anything I say in here I have analysed using the ABS data.
Firstly the GFC happened very very Quickly (within a Month) but that was easy to see with aftersight So it was a great idea to go early and go hard. Some of the Economic pundits weren't worth their expensive services. The rating Agencies for instance. Praised Lehman Bros one min
And the next minute they had closed down. A huge closure and they didn't pick it either. The Coalition proceeded to take the piss out of Kevin Rudd and the Labor party big time, blowhards like Hockey and Morrison and Abbott (remember him?) leading the charge. If you don't believe

@murpharoo It's pretty simple really Katherine, The Minister had no Lawful Authority to approve the grants. That was vested in Sport Australia under the the Australian Sports Commission Act 1989. On Page 19 of the Auditor general's report it says the following. ...
@murpharoo "there are no records evidencing that the Minister was
advised of the legal basis on which the Minister could undertake an approval role, and it is not
evident to the ANAO what the legal authority was.9 The design would also have been improved
had:" page 19/76 under programdesign
@murpharoo She may have been able to attain obtained that authority under Section 11 where she has the ability to give directions. But she didn't do that. So that is why it is allegedly illegal. But she didn't and wasn't advised of her legal Authority. So spinning the whole thing.....

As soon as the Electricity networks were sold off by State governments there was a rise in price of at least 30% because Businesses run for profit, whereas the government owners didn't. Someone said to me yesterday. Why don't we just (xxxxxxx) buy them back. (Expletive deleted).
When you look at claims by the Liberals that they are good with money, Electricity is one example where they are not. The sold assets (Generators) haven't had new investment in generation for years. (The State owned assets were continually upgrading them and self funded)
In Victoria in 1993 the SECV provided the 8th cheapest electricity in the OECD. They were paying off debts for infrastructure and also providing a substantial dividend to the State gov as well as having a substantial retained earnings fund.
