Victorian Liberal Arena 2018

After a two year absence, never in my wildest dreams did I envisage returning to the political arena. Cancer can be a dreadful disease and if one does not have a positive outlook on life, they might as well buy a spade and dig their own grave. This is the third time I have returned back and hopefully it will be my last contribution to the Liberal party. A party which I have followed for the past 50 years.

Apart from being in remission, I have returned because I honestly believe in generational change and feel that the Liberal Party is nearing the generational crossroads. I give our party a mere two years for the transition to occur. Any later and we will be stuck with a paradigm culture that is no longer relevant.

We as Liberals must be forward thinking and be prepared to take risks in order to meet the challenges of the future whatever they may be.  A copy of this article may be downloaded by clicking on:

It has been my experience that during any election year, differences amongst the factions are put aside in order to win government. However despite moving forward and embracing new and emerging technologies, some of us have clung to the paradigms of a bygone era not willing to see what is on the other side of the hill, so to speak

I must confess that despite my love of change and of new technologies, I too have occasionally fallen into the depths of comfort and complacency.   I returned back from treatment after some seven months of recuperation hoping that all was well on the political scene and that the factions had finally reconciled and were working with Matthew Guy, the Opposition leader and Michael Kroger, President of the Liberal Party.  Unfortunately I was in for a rude awakening.

I find that individuals have gone off on a trip of their own, not following protocols, the constitution, leaking information, creating new faction groups, attempting to manipulate members, threats and intimidation, illegal email correspondence being distributed to members from the Administrative Committee, infighting, accusations, character assassination’s and so forth. Therefore over the next few months I intend to write on subjects that may be of interest to members. This shall be my final contribution towards the Liberal party.
