Albanese admitted his leading role in the deposing of Gillard on Election Night…..

Earlier today, the following exchange between Barrie Cassidy and The Hon. Anthony Albanese took place about loyalty on the ABC’s Insiders program, in relation to The Hon. Kevin Rudd and the overthrow of Former Prime Minister Julia Gillard earlier this year.  This statement by Mr Albanese is in stark contrast to his comments on the […]

The Liberals’ Jaymes Diaz is going for a “Greenway” in more ways than one (videos attached)

Just when you think things couldn’t get any weirder in this election, two new videos and a website involving the Liberals’ Candidate for Greenway Jayme Diaz have emerged over the course of the past few hours which throw further water upon his electoral flame.  This includes an extended video of Channel 7’s encounter with Jaymes […]

Ian MacDonald and Lee Rhiannon: How many (Australian) Green(s) Miners are there?

As an interesting sidenote to the scandals surrounding former NSW Agriculture and Natural Resources Minister Ian MacDonald and the mining industry, during the research for my previous article I came across the NSW Greens’ voting record for the Brigalow and Nandewar Community Conservation Area Bill of 2005. As well as this, I also came across […]

If Rudd is serious about cleaning up NSW Labor, then Albanese and Cameron need addressing….

Early on Sunday morning on the ABC’s Insiders program, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said the following statement to Barrie Cassidy in response to a question on the health of the Australian Labor Party and the current election campaign: Thirdly, I think we also saw something wrong happening in the Labor Party. We’ve seen of course […]

Further Pecuniary Interest Problems Shroud Kevin Rudd’s Office

Last week I published a story that questioned the accuracy of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s Pecuniary Interest statements.  This story focused predominantly on the Canberra (35 Mueller St, Yarralumla) and Noosa (“Ocean Blue”) properties that The Rudds own, not to mention the way that they were officially referenced by Mr Rudd, in accordance with Standing […]

A peruse through Prime Minister Gillard’s financial interests……

One of the more peculiar things that I’ve noticed about the current parliament is that nobody’s done a really thorough analysis of Prime Minister Julia Gillard‘s Pecuniary Interests (aka “Members’ Interests”) over the course of the past three years.  While there’s been the occasional reference to her house in the Electorate of Lalor and Mr […]

Playing politics with same sex and gender diverse people’s lives…

Over the past six months, I’ve been getting pretty disillusioned with the entire “Marriage Equality” debate and a lot of the federal politicians that have been supporting it. Like a Bull with a sore head, some of them have been consistently pursuing something that they know won’t happen in the current parliament, regardless of how […]

The Turnbulls and an investment in the NBN…..

If there’s one thing that never ceases to amaze me, it’s that both state and federal politicians don’t think that people check their pecuniary interests, policy statements and voting records, then contrast them against the business interests that said politicians and their families hold. Take The Honourable Shadow Minister for Communications Malcolm Turnbull and his […]

Why I owe our Parliamentarians (including Tony Abbott) an apology….

As many of you would know, during the last election I wrote an article about The Honourable Tony Abbott MP and some audio that I found of him from his tenure at the University of Sydney during the late 1970’s. Within that article, I asked Mr Abbott and all of his colleagues in parliament to […]

Happy Grandpa Vegemite — Is this the “New Kevin”?

It is said that a photo can say a thousand words, so is this a sign of what’s to come for the 26th Prime Minister of Australia? With all of the talk about whether Kevin Rudd is going to challenge Julia Gillard for the Prime Minister-ship again or not, there’s been very little analysis about […]
