GLADYS BEREJIKLIAN OUT!

If we’ve learnt anything in the last two years, it’s that you can’t ever predict the future. Just when we thought we were out of the pandemic, another wave came. Just when we started to enjoy pre-COVID freedoms, they were taken away again. And, just when Australia was starting to experience a successful period of…

A Courageous Politician?

In our current world, it’s not every day that you see a politician employ courage to break party ranks and speak about an important issue. Yet, this week it happened, and I couldn’t be happier about it. NSW Energy and Environment Minister Matt Kean represents Hornsby for the Liberal Party in the New South Wales…

The Never-Ending Lockdown

Well, what a few months it has been in New South Wales. From the complete easing of restrictions to new waves of lockdown, this is an immensely challenging period. Here are some uncategorised, unorganised thoughts I’ve had over the past couple of months: When I wrote my first article on COVID-19 in January 2020, it…

Australia’s Vaccine Disaster

We didn’t have time to prepare! We were focusing on controlling large outbreaks as our first priority! We had to ensure our economy didn’t collapse and lead to chaos! Many countries in the world can use these excuses to justify their slow rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine. Australia CAN NOT. We haven’t had a significant…

Unemployment is NOT Exclusive

It doesn’t choose its targets. It doesn’t favour some over others. It’s unpredictable, devastating and enduring. The myth of unemployment in Australia is incredibly damaging, as it allows the government to continually keep the rate of unemployment benefits so slow. Unemployment is not left for dole bludgers who don’t want to work. I’ll say that…

A Poverty Stimulus

You may have thought that the government was beginning to withdraw any economic stimulus provided to Australians. However, a new stimulus will be presented soon. This time, not a stimulus that provides extra money, but one that places thousands of Australians in poverty. The JobSeeker and JobKeeper payments provided by the government undoubtedly saved lives.…

Sorry Scott, You Can’t Have It Both Ways

Scott Morrison wants to show no compassion to one group of people, but immense compassion to another side. Unfortunately, Prime Minister, you can’t have it both ways. Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, has been a long-term champion of strong border policy. He rose to national prominence for vigorously enforcing Australia’s extreme approach to asylum seekers…

Scott Morrison and Coronavirus

The reaction to Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison’s handling of the Coronavirus pandemic has been mixed, to say the least. Some people have applauded his consistent effort, resilience and commitment to the Australia public by providing updates, listening to medical professionals and taking initiative. However, others have criticised the Prime Minister for not acting fast…

Australia Day Controversy

Every year between the 18th to the 25th of January, Australia fiercely debate whether the date of Australia Day should be changed. The same arguments are presented each year, nothing ends up changing, and everyone loses interest by the 27th of January. So, should the date of Australia day be moved? The date of Australia…

Dear Scott Morrison…

Dear Scott Morrison, you chose to become Prime Minister. You didn’t have to put up your hand for the leadership of the Liberal Party, but you did. Therefore, any criticism towards you is valid and highlights the passion of the people you are meant to lead. Dear Scott Morrison, while the country was suffering, you…

The Grey Line: Religious Freedom

Should a religious person be able to say whatever they want? Should a religious person be able to refuse specific actions in the workforce? Do religious people deserve extra protection? These are the questions which will dominate political discussion in 2020. These are the questions which will aim to turn a clouded, grey line into…

Global Leadership

In each country, there are individuals with extreme power. People who sit at the top of their respective governments and dictate the direction of their nation. Unfortunately, these individuals aren’t always the best leaders. These leadership flaws become evident in unknown circumstances. Instances where the leader must adapt to a new situation, has limited guidance…

Sydney Smoke

The bushfires in Australia aren’t going away. The bushfire seasons was only supposed to begin now, but the fires have been raging for months now. The fires have had detrimental consequences, such as the loss of life, property and a blanket of smoke over the city. When will this disaster end? The fire danger remains…
