Steve's Blog - A little peek at Melbourne

A blog is an ongoing diary or commentary. You can communicate with other members or reflect on your life, work, or anything that comes to mind. Even if nobody reads your blog, you can keep it as an open journal. Few personal blogs rise to fame but you might gain a loyal following. One-line entries or post in great detail - it's up to you - but be prepared to receive questions and comments from other members.
Forum rules
Please take one "New Topic" and make it your blog - one topic only, please. Please post within the bounds of common decency and civility, and make your blog as long as you like. No advertising.

Any response on a blog should be to the blog owner, not to any other poster.

Very cool find...and very telling about the House. Embarrassing I would think.

I don't think it is possible to embarrass a politician. They are immune to the notion.

Story on the radio this morning that the welfare department has detected and acted upon 1.4 billion dollars of fraud in the last 18 months.

This has been made possible by a concerted effort over the last few years to collect and compare data.

Not sure who is doing it, likely the tax department who have access to everything but for sure big brother is watching.

So all those people who have multiple names or a few extra imaginary kids or a cash only job on the side while they claim to be un employed are being found out.

They get caught out because the computers look at what you spend V what you earn.
If you claim to be poverty struck but still do the OS holiday every year or buy a new car you will be caught out.

Likely this is one of the reasons our lot are so keen on the cashless economy.

Read this - http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/02/08/au ... -mistress/

Forget about the media frenzy and the obvious double standards on the sanctity of marriage..

The actual issues discussed are not that important.

The question is - Could you ever trust anything this man said about whatever and he is the Deputy PM.

Nothing better illustrates what I said a couple of posts back about politicians.

A story on the radio this morning might be of interest.

Several leading secondary schools in Melbourne have taken the step of banning mobile phones.

Students are required to put their phone in their locker at the start of the day and leave it there till they go home.

The result of this has been an increase in concentration levels and an increase in inter student communication.

I doubt we were the first to come up with this but it does appear to be gaining support at more schools in the area.
