Martin Parkinson, Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet secretary, recently warned departments and individual public servants of the "lethal mix of arrogance and ignorance" plaguing public policy. Read more: Canberra Times 19 April 2016.

Yesterday, 12 April 2016 was the International Day of Human Space Flight
April 12, 1961, was the date of the first human space flight, carried out by Yuri Gagarin. This historic event opened the way for space exploration. In 2011 the UN declared April 12 as the “International Day of Human Space Flight” to remember the first human space flight and to promote the exploration and use…
ATO has a little sulk.
Mummy Bronwyn gives them some tough love.
“The heart is a pump that does respond when the brain asks it to, but it is not enslaved to the brain. Its relationship to the brain is more like a marriage ... with each dependent on the other. It seems science is now restoring to the heart something that rightfully belongs to it: Our emotions.”
Here we are in 2016 and Australian Public Service agencies continue to bully and mob employees…Continue
Note: I am expressing my opinions only and my opinions are not necessarily those of Ozloop or contributors. This applies in respect to comments I make also :-)
I was recalling the other day how I had been blocked by an independent assessor psychiatrist from being able to have 10-15 minutes of the one hour assessment to explain the nature of the workplace mobbing I was experiencing.
Everything you are about to read in this story is solidly based on fact. Sitting behind this are thousands of pages of documentary evidence. This story is initially being told in this way as events are continuing to unfold.
The actions and events described have taken place for over 10 years. The serial deceit and brazen gaming of the government agency involved did not take place at a whim. It is systemic, normalised and a refection of the state of government and the Australian…Continue
Successive Australian Governments and the Australian Public Service are used to dominating political decision making and discussion. Government speaks, mainstream media reports and from time to time there are rumblings from the community. In the main Australia has been a fairly silent state.
The polical culture that has evolved is very much one of 'being in charge' and exercising power. That culture has not changed…Continue
Back in 2011, when I was still in my naïve 20s, I took up a fight that turned out – most would say inevitably so – to be a losing battle. That battle was essentially to save “normal” and hold “bad” accountable.
That battle started with me uncovering, during research for my Master of Public Policy at the Australian National University, a pernicious practice in the Australian Public Service (APS) of forcing internal whistleblowers to undergo psychiatric assessments in…Continue
Behind the scenes it's been a busy but professionally rewarding few months for me. Assisting some brave, clever and community minded people on issues concerning abuses of power by the Australian Public Service.
Then there's the apparent selective blindness of…Continue
It would seem that the Military Rehab and Compensation Commission on delegation from Comcare have made moves to block payment on all vaccination related issues via a High Court Appeal.
Make your own mind up, the key links to consider follow:
The Canberra Times describes the vaccination issues that have been covered up here:…Continue

Like some fallout from the Twighlight Zone Comcare keeps attracting the sort of headlines and stories they want us to believe. But don't worry - The truth is out there.…Continue
It would seem every officer at the Queanbeyan High Command preferred to support distinguished officers Patrick Hicks and Todd Finnegan rather than Lucie.
Gives you a fair idea of the over riding culture, and where you stand if you don't happen to have a witness like…Continue

Another familiar story.
lifted from: Illawarra Mercury
Yesterday I was contacted by Lynda Saltarelli founder of Aged Care Crisis.
Barely a day goes by that we don’t hear another shameful story of sub-standard care to our elderly citizens in hospital and nursing home care.
Whilst our politicians and bureaucrats argue, pass the buck, or indulge in…

This coming Tuesday, 11 August 2015, Stephen Strelecky will be receiving a Dreyfus Award from Australians United for Israel.
You may recall that Mr Strelecky received an apology from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for the anti-semitic taunts he had been subjected to when working for the ATO. However, as pointed out in the Herald Sun,…
Liar liar pants on fire!!! If you have suffered at the hands of hired guns you will most likely be saying "Liar" more than once.

I recently purchased Scott Horton's book Lords of Secrecy: The National Security Elite and America's Stealth Warfare. The book shows how the growth in the power of bureaucrats has undermines democracy. The major tactic being the misuse of secrecy and the amplification of fear through the exaggeration of threat.
These tactics have been employed by most democratic governments and are a threat to both democracy and good governance. Australia is no exception to this and most…Continue
