If you owe the money, pay up! That’s damn good policy

Friday, July 09, 2021

My heart was gladdened recently by the spectacular collapse of Greensill Capital, once a darling of the financial and (some) political elites in Australia and the UK.

Greensill was a ‘leader’ in reverse factoring, also known as supply chain financing. In its simplest formulation, reverse factoring enables a supplier to receive faster payment of money owed to it by paying a fee to a finance company. The finance company pays the supplier and takes over the debt. It can be good. More...


Is WorkSafe Victoria grossly incompetent or is something else going on?

Tuesday, June 29, 2021

Today, 29 June 2021, Victorian WorkSafe finally replied to us as to whether it is prosecuting the Victorian Government over the hotel quarantine deaths scandal.

Its reply? ‘We need more time!’ More...


How the ATO ‘manages’ parliament – ATO techniques as ‘lawmaker’

Sunday, June 20, 2021

In 2018, high-profile tax lawyer Mark Leibler stated that the ATO effectively makes tax law. He said:

“…for all intents and practical purposes, it’s effectively the (Tax) Commissioner who lays down the law.” “…Commissioner effectively continues to act as lawmaker…”
The accuracy of this statement can be seen, in part, in the way the ATO ‘manages’ its appearances before Parliamentary Committees. More...


Prosecution of the Victorian government – Update

Wednesday, June 02, 2021

With the fourth Covid lockdown in Victoria we’re being consistently asked where we are at with our campaign to prosecute the Victorian government over the quarantine OHS breaches.

Quite simply we are currently in a holding pattern. WorkSafe Victoria must reply to our original 29 September 2020 letter by 29 June this year. That’s WorkSafe’s deadlineMore...


Deliveroo decision is NOT a win for unions. Just normal stuff!

Sunday, May 23, 2021

There’s a lot of excitement coming from the union movement over the recent ‘Deliveroo’ decision. ‘This is the end of gig’ they say.

They are excited because the Fair Work Commission (FWC) has declared that Deliveroo food deliverers are employees and not independent contractors.  More...


More Victorian quarantine mess. The government puts people at risk. Where is WorkSafe?

Sunday, May 09, 2021

If you’ve been following the Victorian Hotel quarantine ‘mess’, you’ll be aware that we started our adverts on top rating Victorian radio station 3AW on 21 April. Those adverts finish this coming week. They simply call for WorkSafe Victoria to do its job and prosecute! More...


ATO relies on ‘gossip’ to manufacture tax debt, defiling the rule of law

Sunday, May 02, 2021

An April 2021 High Court outcome demonstrates that the ATO has chucked the rule of law into the bin. The ATO asserts that it can manufacture a tax debt based on gossip.

Between 2012 and 2015, criminals defrauded the ATO of at least $2.45 billion in GST in the ‘gold scam’. In happened arguably because of ATO incompetence. We’ve explained this before.  More...


Major radio media campaign starts. Victorian OHS Quarantine Prosecution

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

We’ve had fantastic support from lots of people in our campaign to push Victoria’s WorkSafe to investigate/prosecute the Victorian government over the failed 2020 Covid quarantine program. Remember, no-one should be above the law. 801 deaths cannot be ignored.

As a key part of that campaign, tomorrow, Wednesday 21 April, we launch a serious media campaign to push WorkSafe to do their job.

Tomorrow we begin a three-week breakfast radio advertising campaign on Melbourne’s top talk-back radio station, 3AW. More...


ATO Mongrel Bunch of Bastards Continues—Morrison Needs to Act

Tuesday, April 06, 2021

Today we release details of continuing abuse of small business by the ATO.

You may remember that in 2018 we were heavily involved in the production of the ABC 4 Corners program Mongrel Bunch of Bastards. The program exposed the gross abuse of small business people by the ATO. Since then we have campaigned hard for reform to the ATO’s audit and enforcement division, which is where the problems exist.

This time, in our view, the abuse looks like a massive ATO cover-up of the largest tax scandal in Australia’s history. Surely not, we ask? More...


‘Homework’ takes on a totally new meaning … for adults!

Friday, March 19, 2021

The global energy giant BP has told around 25,000 of its staff that work from home is now permanent. This is confirmation that ‘home-work’ is now globally locked in and not a temporary Covid ‘thing’.

BP is selling offices and moving to smaller premises as staff move to working two days and more from home. This is evidence of a working revolution. It’s a revolution that will throw the legal, academic, tax and political work-regulation establishment into utter confusion.  More...
