ATO bans my site – guarded doors for closed minds

The Tax Office has banned access to my site because it is “political”, according to two readers. Ah, so it has absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with the fact that my moderate tax articles are critical of the leadership of the ATO.  We couldn’t have ATO staff receiving an alternative view of the direction their […]

The bosses’ wage terrorism begins

What an obscenity. The rich and powerful are telling the poorly paid that a wage increase would be bad. Not bad for the poorly paid mind you, but bad for the rich and powerful. Hard to imagine isn’t it – Australia’s CEOs as caring sharing types worried about job losses? Don’t laugh. Evidently they care about […]

Blame the bikies

Newsflash. Bikies caused the global economic crisis.
