Last night I was interviewed by Leigh Sales on the ABC’s 7.30 program. Sales was her professional self and we discussed my continuing efforts to create a stronger and more effective conservative voice in the public square.
I referred to my speech at the National Press Club in 2014 which covered the dissatisfaction with politics and politicians and the potential for it to prompt a rise in anti-establishment political forces.

Back in 2009 I travelled to Europe to see the impact of their immigration program and how it had affected the cultural and social fabric of a number of countries.
I was horrified by what I saw because the inevitable consequences were obvious to anyone prepared to confront reality. At the time there were very few prepared to do so. One was Dutch politician Geert Wilders, whom I met in Amsterdam.

It's the final Senate week before the Budget is due in May and the focus is on Senate voting reform.
To say that things are a little fractious would be an understatement. Labor and the Independents are incensed about the reforms and a few Libs (like me) wonder about the wisdom of any policy that requires and receives the support of the Greens to get through!

The media speculation is that Australia will be headed to the national polls on July 2 for a double dissolution (DD) election.
This is where both Houses of Parliament are dissolved and all senators face the voters (rather than only half as per normal).

It’s been another big week in politics since my last letter.
It seems the rest of Australia has finally woken up to the damaging political agenda of the ‘Safe Schools Coalition’ program and even though the facts are ignored or misrepresented by the celebrity ‘news’ services, the awful truth is out there. Whilst the review is still being conducted, it would be incredulous for the government not to act against this appalling program.

Politics has reached a new low when the leader of a major political party can only resort to name calling to defend his ideological and illogical policies.
It happened this morning with the ‘Napoleonic’ leader of the Labor Party, Bill Shorten, who was seeking to defend Labor’s poisonous ‘Safe Schools Coalition’ program that indoctrinates children with a political agenda.

Today I am going to write about money. More specifically, what the government wants to do with your money.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports this morning that Australia is ‘on an unstoppable march towards a cashless future’; with the Assistant Minister to the Treasurer Alex Hawke MP saying that a move to a purely digital currency “will lead to countless benefits for all Australians in convenience and security, and will save billions in transaction costs every year”.

This morning the media asked for my thoughts on a story on the front page of The Australian about a taxpayer-funded ‘gay manual’ introduced to schools.
The program, written by homosexual activists and supported to the tune of $8m by the federal government, encourages children as young as 11 to become advocates for the homosexual cause.

They say age brings wisdom. I can’t vouch for that but if there was an award for frustration, I would be receiving my Master’s degree!
Wherever I look I see a suspension of common sense and seem to be continually saying ‘the world has gone mad’.
