I've gotta say, two weeks out from the State election I was tipping a hung parliament. That changed during the two weeks I spent manning pre-poll booths in Wangaratta and Shepparton for 'Josh Hudson 4 Northern Victoria', but the final result was still rather surprising.

I've spent much of the last couple of months running around the countryside, attending the consultations and hearings held by the Productivity Commission and Seftons (on behalf of the Federal Ag Dept.) 10 hearings, in 8 towns across all four basin states and the ACT.

It's been over 6 weeks since Scott Morrison held his first press conference as PM and declared that Drought and Power Prices were his first priority. In those 6 weeks we've seen a few of the proverbial deck chairs shifted around in other policy areas and very little talk - none...

I rarely watched the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show as a kid, but this week was an enormous reminder of the cartoon moose's constant attempts to "pull a rabbit out of my hat!" "Again?" his squirrel companion would reply, "but that trick never works!"

I'd like to say a big thankyou to Liz of Liz Arcus Photography for my recent photo shoot! Now that I've got some professional photos, I'm ready to start planning in earnest for the next federal election which is due any time between now and late May 2019 (I'm tipping it'll be...

I find myself filled with rage at yet another young woman being murdered by a male who clearly felt it was his right to harm her.
 

I'm filled with anguish for her family and friends. Sadly, I'm far too aware of what they're going through. That Laa Chol grew up in Shepparton and...

I've been jumping through the hoops of several financial institutions over recent months in an effort to refinance my home loan. In part, this is due to the expectation that the AEC's redistribution of Victorian electorates will see Euroa (where I currently live) moved to Ind...
