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...

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...


Victorian Labor – The politically walking dead

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

As a group, the Victorian ALP is politically walking dead. It cannot win the next state election in November 2022.

That is a pretty big claim. Predicting an election outcome two years out is foolish by any measure. But here’s the reasoning.

In Australia’s current political environment each major party can only rely on a locked-on vote of about 35 per cent each. The task at every election is to grab enough of the remaining 30 per cent swinging voters to end up with 50 per cent plus one on election day. More...

Victorian’s feel powerless. But we say: use your VOTE this council election.

Whether you believe that the lockdown is necessary or not, the Victorian Covid-19 mess is the direct result of the huge failures of the Andrews’ Labor government. They admit this.

Politicians only understand your VOTE.  More...


Ken and Alan Jones discuss Vic Covid-19 OHS prosecutions

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Last night, I discussed with Alan Jones (Sky News) issues surrounding criminal OHS prosecutions of the Victorian government over the hotel quarantine mess. The discussion is here.

The key point is that there must be consistency in the application of the law. There cannot be one rule for the rulers and another for the people who are ruled. To do that would amount to a collapse of the rule of law in society.  More...
