Australia has become the pits of hell in world Corona stakes.
Australia’s reputation as a “lucky country” continued into COVID-19 but the reality is that fumbling and bumbling, delays and poor system design and delivery made the economic and social costs disproportionate to the low number of cases. The governance model was and remains a disaster.
There are G7 and Leaders’ Forums quite used to layers of Morrison PR bullying but underneath roiled tales of waste, cruelty and corrupt self-interest (Morrison & Frydenberg lied about this but OECD recently put the sword through them: “Business dynamism was on a decline going into the pandemic”). It was not a good time to have an erratic PM and tyro Treasurer.
This exercise started in August 2018 as “A study in Un-Politics, Non-Decision-Making & Elitist De-democratisation”, then “Cheated” in that December, after the current PM, Scott Morrison, took over from Malcolm Turnbull, under whom, when his Treasurer, a destructive mode of budgetting called “gifting” had developed. He rejected “barnacle” removal meaning “budget repair. My reports mapped the development of major dysfunctionalities including wasteful infrastructure sapping funds from health and education budgets.
They are still there in 2021.
A pantomime was produced by Australia in the southern summer of 2020 which led to the appointment of an Australian, Mathias Cormann, as sixth Secretary-General of OECD, under the sponsorship of known carbon prevaricators and albeit he had been the man in Australia who was highly instrumental in the rejection of OECD’s guidelines and replacement by corporate lobbies and cronies, as well as suppression of renewables. This ego game was destructive and needs exposure.
European and American leaders have joined domestic advocates in questioning the Australian PM’s and Ministers’ veracity and competence in a succession of world forums.
Well might they do so as democracy has been tainted by an unprecedented dominance of political and corporate vested interests, greed and cronyism, and incompetence by naïve politicians and their political appointees who having blundered are rewarded for serving their masters so well. The “Hard Carbon” champions are represented by political and geographic distinctions across a diverse land.
The Energy Minister tried to manipulate Paris Accord projections through the use of pre-credits (and failed), and overturns market principles to extend carbon usage past 2050, a perverse outcome for a supposed PhD in competition principles! Trust Angus Taylor? We’ll check his track record as an academic economist especially with failed “congestion bustin’” and his wrecking of Western Sydney’s productivity and employment.
Along the way vicious misogyny and narcissism outbursts disgusted observers of the treatment of bushfire communities and workers, raped women within Parliamentary premises or grown close to them over time, and individuals and their families who have been robbed of their life work with a consequence of avoidable deaths of 4,000 children in misery and slavery, so far. Berejiklian smiles when dealing with disasters but snarls and bites when her per projects and vilest promises are treated with objective professionalism.
It’s worse than that, when Treasurer Frydenberg was confronted with a 2019 Malenomics package and cancelled MYEFO, deferred the Budget, deferred Parliament, cancelled 2 weeks of Parliament, and deceived himself into more “gifting” tranches, he showed he is a coward.
“The Emperor has no clothes”. That they got further into trouble was no surprise but that they oppose repair of their blunders is catastrophic. Industry groups are Big Business and disregard SMEs. Local government has great potential but is excluded. Media are too frequently insipid and subservient, producing churnalism more than journalism. The predominant structures in the capital cities are the forests of silos where groupthink is progressively rotting, from their tops.
The OECD guidelines have been applied diligently in my works because they are founded on right and proper precedents. This analyst is last of a great generation of NSW reformers who followed that path through the guidance of excellent educations and commonsense as well as comradeship.

I have a special perspective on the economics of regional revival as in Newcastle, Rockdale and the Blue Mountains, while the Fed and State administrations are lacking in such knowledge and the various engagement and information tools required for success.
My education was also special as this document shows.
Political leadership is dominated by corrupted lobbies and media.
The domination of political appointees and fused, incompetent budgetary systems is a dangerous combination for a nation with high costs considering the small risks - we can do things in a much better way all round but the chronic exclusions and suppressions are in foul dominance.
I invite the community to better represent the National Interests than National Cabinet has.
NATIONAL CABINET AGAIN SUPPRESSED MY WORK ON COMMUNITY RESILIENCE
The warnings have been clear and the anticipated relaxation of what is a lax border closure threatens a third closure as international aviation ramps up and repeated blunders continue on. The Vic app and existing border controls are poor.
EMBARGO 4 pm today, 8 January
Today the PM determines the fate of my commentary on him and his loony associates, as well as on a media pack that I have been watching with real concern.
Herein and elsewhere I make points that are high in evidentiary and analytical quality but which no jouno has reported - this is a serious matter and if you look through the text and links you'll see I'm ramping up the pressure. There's so much more in the can, a whole book perhaps. (The next one in fact is on Crona Malenomics. The current brochure is to be published on America on-line as a brochure on a very topical subject).
We have seen the drama the fascist press are having in America and the tide is turning. I know my matters are of great interest to a few of you.
Here, now, you can read this and ask for permission which will likely be granted. Bygones be bygones in the interest of restoring 360 degree credibility.
PS Remember I'm the most highly qualified and credentialled fish in the pond on these matters

Subject: Fwd: Your message to the Prime Minister
Please see my tweet on the disgusting revelation in the media today that governments have suppressed 37 cases of the new deadly type virus, which materially increases the value of my intellectual property. This is getting worse and worse and must stop today
The PM has contravened every quoted Biblical, Hillsong, prudential, ethical, economic, political, historical and other principle quoted here including OECD advisories. His mistakes are legion. "You" have stolen from me and hurt me in every manner you could but I warned you about taking on a dragon and a rugby/athletic player - my courage was forged under parental abuse and my long personal reconstruction hardened me. Dither if you want but know the consequences.

Subject: Demolishing your credibility - If Christ Came to Sydney exposure draft (c)
It has come to High Noon - you have lied, cheated, stolen and manipulated too long and hurt too many people. You were warned and chose to lock your stupid Bubble's drawbridge. Baird started to destroy our democracy and you have all got on board - so you all share the death-or-glory.
The immediate consequences will be to hit the National Cabinet hard if "you" again suppress my work, continue in stupid directions, and endorse your and Berejiklian's evil actions against me and Australia.
Course is to circulate this for final comment, to give you a breather, but it will go to America for online publication in time for President Biden's Inauguration. It will be going to all international agencies and to Australian national industry and professional groups. The rest is obvious. Do not steal.
