Turn back their yachts

Imagine if we used the money the rich waste on this frivolous Sydney to Hobart yacht race to improve public health and education in Australia. Imagine remains a John Lennon song, unfortunately. It’s time to turn back their yachts.

The real duds in the Australian Tax Office

It is my understanding that the loss of long term experienced tax officers is already having an impact on revenue collections and with more job cuts to come the decline in collections, especially from the tax risk takers in big business, will only get worse. But not to worry. Treasurer Joe Hockey can just use that as further ‘evidence’ to back up his false claims about a Budget emergency and cut more public services and public service jobs. The 1% will be pleased.

Yachts of the rich are so last year

I wrote this a few years ago and updated it last year. ‘The Sydney to Hobart yacht race is a race for the billionaires and multi-millionaires, the one percent. These people lead a very different life to us. They live off our hard work. They don’t and won’t mix with the rest of us. They […]

Police, horse dribblers and other merde

If there is any hope it lies in the proles. The most important battles in the weeks and months to come are likely to be by unions, in particular building unions.

Turn back the yachts of the 1%

The Sydney to Hobart yacht race is a race for the billionaires and multi-millionaires, the one percent. These people lead a very different life to us. They live off our hard work. They don’t and won’t mix with the rest of us. They inhabit rich ghettos. They speak a different language of finance and investment and money. They even eat different food. We don’t want them here. It’s time to turn back the yachts.
