Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Another message from those imprisoned in the Australian concentration camp on Nauru

In short period we have seen asylum attempted suiciding, self-harming, mentally disturbed, stressed, naked themselves, protests and hunger strikes. So what will be result in the future?

We request to the government and people of Australia save our lives and future.

Is the new Commissioner of Taxation fox or gamekeeper?

Such is Labor’s degeneration they have handed the tax collecting role to a person whose whole working life has been representing the interests of big business in general in policy debates and discussions and defending specific big businesses when battling the ATO. Jordan would almost certainly be someone who has undertaken tax planning for his big business clients and the rich. One has to wonder if he has been involved in tax avoidance schemes. Neoliberal madness.

Poppies help our rulers forget

What is relevant is that the destruction of whole countries by imperialism that continues to this day is justified and glorified in the disguise of remembering. Lest we forget, there is a struggle to end war by challenging the rulers and the system that cause it. That won’t come from burning a poppy but it will come from the same sort of mass movement that ended the First World War.
