    Mr Barry Montgomery

    Each state has an organisation that investigates skills and qualification recognition. Mostly these are through the states own Education Dept. A quick google will bring them up for you.
  2. At best the West Australian never let the facts get in the way of a good story!
  3. I met him a few times as he was a friend of my ex husband. I really liked Dennis... such a great character and an honourable chap. Very sad to hear of his passing.
  4. Is he still living under your house Bottie?????

    What Book are you reading??

    I have just started Judi Dench's auto biography "and furthermore". Only read a few pages but it is looking good. It is about her life from 1934 up to 2010 when the book was published. The book was a gift from a friend who knew I admired Judi as an actress, and because she and I lived within a few miles of each other in Sussex before I emigrated to Oz. Will let you know what I think of it.

    I totally agree on that issue @Lavers. To me the job mandates smack of "Coercion/Blackmail", and that should never have happened. Most people were happy to have the jab if they believed in it, but to coerce people to have it or not have a job, was disgusting and should never have happened. Those Mandates were unlawful. When the vax first arrived and we were all recommended to have it, so many people were doing so. Then mandates started to come out, and many people started to have other thoughts about having the vax as they didn't want to be coerced or blackmailed into having it, and started to research about it. Half of my Australian family are vaccinated as they needed it for work and were forced into getting it ... the other half is unvaxed and refuse to get it as they will not bow down to coercion. ALL of my Australian family mix with each other and respect each others views on this, but I hear so much about how other families have major issues with vaxxed and non vaxxed not talking to each other, and that saddens me so much.

    Mad isnt it Bottie. I was cold on Saturday, but yesterday we had Mother's Day lunch on the patio instead of indoors, and had to put the fan on as everyone was so hot!. Dog of course had a swim to cool off!
  8. Thank goodness for that Bottie! x

    Way back in 2004 my beautiful Mum was in hospital because she was so exhausted from looking after my father with his serious health issues. Both were in their 80's. Home carers and family looked after Dad so he was OK, but Mum was in hospital and the care for her was not good. Mum fell out of bed one night as the nurse on duty had "forgotten" to put the side panel up to keep Mum safe. Mum consequently fell out of bed and her head hit the bed frame and caused a major head injury that required immediate surgery and blood transfusions. There was no blood available for Mum, so as we are/were the same blood type, I volunteered to donate straight to her..... the fact that I and her had lived in UK during the the mad cow disease situation allowed me to donate direct to my Mum. I laid next to her in the operating theatre as they operated on my Mum. The surgeon afterwards told me that without my blood donation Mum would have not made it through the operation. She lived another 14 years. For so many years I was a blood donor in Oz and then in the UK. I wonder if they will now accept my blood donation. I saved my Mum's life... guessing I might be able to save others now too.
  10. Bugga! All I can say really, but I bet George has loved having his MUM home all the time....

    Wow what an absolutely horrid thing to say. So basically you are saying that you respect everyone's views, but if they don't align with yours, their views are not important and should be rejected and rubbished!

    Mandates are a violation of personal choice. If the government and MSM had just talked up the vacinations instead of the whole mandate thing, I am sure that a great many people would have trotted along and been vaccinated. Because of the "mandate", many people started to look into the whole issue of the jabs. Many of these people decided to take the jab because they needed to keep their job, but there is a cohort of people who have decided "not for me - my body my choice". I respect everyone's views on this, and whatever you decide to do should be your decision only, and not something that the government has mandated.

    It is increasingly being reported that people who fit this category have had the jab, however many times. I know that the media are trying to play this down, but I do wonder if there is something in this. As I have said before, I personally know a few people who are now vaccine damaged and who were healthy and active before their jab. Whatever is the cause, it makes you think about whether the jab is the issue in some cases.
