Tonight was a milestone for me. As promised some three years ago, I stepped aside from all political positions and just remaining a member of the Liberal Party. I will confess that I am an unashamed right wing conservative with family and Defence as my favourite issues. I have many political friends amongst the major parties, friendships built over many years. In each case respect for one another is what kept us all together.

After 26 years as a political activist, fighting what I believed in and taking the brunt of much criticism, I can truly say I have contributed my bit to family, politically, militarily and community. Tonight at the Annual General Meeting, despite the intervention of one very rude individual, it was pleasing to see new blood. As for me, I will be free to do what I please.
In addition, I have also stepped aside from any community commitments except that of Public Relations Officer. After six years on the Executive Committee it was also time to step down. Two years of relative peace, good governance and working with some good people, it was time to let new blood take over. I can now spend more time on my hobbies of gardening writing and spending time with the family.
Individuals can criticise me, taunt, lie about me, defame me, and say all kind of weird things to cause me stress. But I am the stage of my life where I could not care less for they are weak individuals who know only to harm others by their ignorance. I can honestly say that I have never let anyone down in my whole life and yet as many know because I place a high value on friendships, I have been let down. That is my problem not theirs.
Today three incidents of a negative nature occurred. One was a telephone call to a good friend of mine by someone attempting to defame me and another went onto social media complaining about how she was treated. The third was an attempt to damage my reputation through third parties. In all three cases these people have nothing better to do but finds means and ways to kick a bloke when he is down. Both of these individuals are un-Australian.
I do not wish them harm, but I must confess, I have no time for such people. I just wish that they had the courage of their convictions to step back and review matters and not allow emotion to fuel their anger. Life has other meanings and should not be squandered on hate, envy, jealousy, anger and hostility.
I hope that I can be left alone to continue with my hobbies and pursue my writing with the same passion that enabled me to survive in the streets as a street fighter, the many years of discipline in the Army, raising my four sons, battling numerous illnesses and fighting the good fight. But knowing life as I do, I am sure that someone will wish me harm and attempt to bring me down. But knowing me, I will get up and beat the shit out of them with them even knowing what hit them, quietly, efficiently and without the bullshit.
As always, apologies to purists for my poor grammar and savagery of the English language. I wish you all well and hope that this article does not cause ambiguity in the minds of those who read it.
