    Posted by · June 20, 2016 6:56 PM

    The “Fake Tradie” video that has surfaced is rather funny. The tradie (who the Liberal Party says is a real businessperson) complains about the injustice about to be handed to his bank by a Labor government.

  • Flux: an interesting model, but needs more thought

    Posted by · June 14, 2016 12:27 PM

    You may have heard about Flux, a new political party that promises to bring direct democracy to Australia through a blockchain solution.

    The solution is similar to parties like Senator Online, now known as Online Direct Democracy, but with a couple of key differences. Firstly, the blockchain element of Flux gives certainty about how the vote is cast. Secondly, and most importantly, the Flux system allows people to trade votes. So people may trade their votes on the TPP for votes on the great barrier reef.

  • Science Party/Cyclist Party score a strong left-hand position

    Posted by · June 10, 2016 12:52 PM

    The Science Party has pulled a strong left-hand position at number 9 (column I) at the NSW senate ballot draw today.
    The Science Party/Cyclist Party ticket is one of the longest on the ballot with 4 candidates. Other parties with longer tickets include Greens, Labor, Liberal and CDP with 12 each. Socialist Alliance also has 4 candidates.
    The position is slightly to the right of the Liberals at position 6.
    The prominent position and long ticket will likely increase the total number of votes Science receives on election day.

  • AUD could go to US50c because of a lack of vision

    Posted by · May 26, 2016 2:43 PM

    We’re heading for an economic disaster because of the poor planning of current and previous governments. According to ANZ Banking, the AUD could go to US 50 cents. With official interest rates at 1.75%, there is little value in holding Australian currency. If we maintain interest rates at this level or cut them further, the dollar will go down further.

    Posted by · May 22, 2016 11:33 PM
