Easy answer; lobby no one, just read up on who holds the most marginal seats in the house of reps and announce you are going to campaign for/against the sitting member unless they act like Pauline on your behalf. Don’t you guys get it?

To put it another way #$@# lobbying! My way they come to you and ask what you want in return for not running a perfectly legal campaign to unseat them.

There is no jargon, deep technical argument involved, just a simple appeal to voters that doesn’t even need to be aviation related.

I wouldn’t be putting my life in the hands of an imbecile such as ‘Pauline’. Can’t string three words together, makes wild and unfounded accusations with no evidence, insults people’s intelligence by seriously floating the idea that all the bad stuff in the investigative report was ‘dubbed’, often nominated backstabbing, people with criminal records as party members then it’s never her fault... remember the moron she nominated that though Islam was a country and that Jews ‘followed Jesus’.
After all her bluster and dodgem car speaking style (if it can be called speaking), she invariably makes a big incoherent noise then votes with the government every time.
Any reliance on ‘Pauline’ would kill any campaign stone dead. At least pick a politician who appears to possess a brain.

Aerial, you are probably quite right. However it counts for nothing. ScoMo needs her vote, that is all that matters. Better brains than me can work out what to ask for, however I would expect a rewrite of the Act including a requirement to foster aviation, a restructuring of aviation responsibilities and associated organisations, the adoption of FAA rules and removal of criminal penalties would be starters.

Iron Jayeh

It has become a very lengthy matter. I am not sure if you come from an aviation background, but can I make a couple of suggestions, Please email [email protected] with Media Pack in the title and I will return a media pack to you.

In Post 548, I am doing an "interview" style approach. It is a work in progress and constantly being updated, as I get time. It will be a good starting point as it gets significantly updated over coming days.

Cheers. Glen.

A few slow days, but to be expected from time to time.

Still $42,200 to date in a pretty short time, another short burst will pretty much hit the target.

POST 590

In post 590 I published a letter that was sent to the Australian Prime Minister one month ago. It has not been acknowledged or responded to in any manner.

I have also delivered a copy of that letter to the my local member Ms Gladys Liu, the Member for Chisholm, and asked her office to pass that to the PM, and confirm once that has been done. Understandably, she would be "lying low" at the moment, but I am entitled to a response, as a 54 year resident of that electorate.

My allegations are in fact the most substantial allegations that could be bought against a Public Officer. I They cannot continue to be ignored. I am prepared to provide evidence against each and every one of those allegations.

This matter potentially impacts on aviation safety in Australia. It requires a response.

I am open to suggestions. Could this in fact be a topic for a GA petition lead by AOPA?

1. Listen.

2. Obtain advice from people who know what they are talking about.

3. Despite your long experience in the aviation industry, you have evidently either not been paying attention or have forgotten what’s gone on. All of your tactics have been tried many times and have failed to result in substantial change.

4. You only need to write to two people (in the current Parliamentary balance of power situation): Pauline Hanson and Jacqui Lambie. All else is wasted effort.

5. Listen.

James Ashby, Pauline’s advisor, is an aviator. Get in his ear too.

Now you are getting the idea! Apply what little leverage we have where it will do the most good - marginal seats and cross bench members.

Yeh, true, but my point is that she'll promise everything and then cave into the government anyway. She is only interested in her own self-aggrandizement and feathering her own nest. She only goes anywhere with any item if she thinks it'll increase her populist profile.

Might be hard to get hold of, probably overseas trying to get money from the NRA. Seriously, pick another Senator, this group are a clown show.

Gladys Lius office contacted me

I have just taken a telephone call from the office of my local member of parliament, Ms Gladys Liu.

I am informed that the presentation of the material caught Ms Lius attention, and she allocated a significant amount of time to my matter. She has expressed an interest to follow and potentially assist with the matter, and has asked for a copy of my material be emailed to her.

I must say that I have dealt with two personnel from her office. They seem capable, and well intentioned.

I will be seeking a meeting with Ms Liu. At that meeting, primarily I will be presenting my case.

I will however put the following proposition to her.

That her office consider taking a more active role in representing General Aviation, and promoting the growth of GA small business, and particularly in regional areas.

In light of unsubstantiated and politically motivated controversy over her position and allegiances, supporting all those Australian owned small aviation businesses would be a noble cause.

Potentially AOPA may able to establish a relationship with her office, and provide a point of contact.

A number of options could be explored.

Hopefully, any politician, that was prepared to take an active interest in our industry, would receive strong industry support in return.

Interesting, as a 54 year resident of Chisholm, I feel she will represent me diligently, and look forward to updating you.

For those that have not been following. This post, is a follow up to post 590.

Shameless plug follows https://www.gofundme.com/f/glen-buckley-v-casa

You do realise that the election of Ms Liu is the subject of ongoing Federal Court proceedings, and that her stay in Parliament could be quite short-lived?

I am about to sit down and draft a letter to Ms Lambie, which I will post here on completion, cheers. Glen.

In the event that Ms Lius reign is short lived, I can assure you I will be throwing my hat in the ring, and not only because of aviation matters. I am a true Chisholm resident, and active and interested in the community. I am passionate about small business and red tape, and sincerely would like to throw my hat in the ring. That will come at the appropriate time because my immediate battle is my families welfare, and I have no intention of losing that battle.

Once that is out the way, and if the timing is right, I will pop up in Chisholm, and have commenced the process to cancel my dual citizenship. All for a bit further down the track.

Just as likely to be long lived given the basis of the original complaint. She has survived the allegations of ties to the CCP so a frivolous claim about election day banners written in another language is not going to unseat her. Go for it Glen!

Proposed letter to Ms Lambie with media pack attached

Dear Ms Lambie,

My name is Glen Buckley, previously the owner of a well-established flight training school in Melbourne.

In October 2018, CASA took action without prior warning, that lead to the closure of my business.

Other businesses have also closed as a result of this CASA action.

The CASA action was highly inappropriate, and I intend to hold four personnel within CASA ,fully to account against their conduct.

I am a victim of substantial malpractice within CASA, and a lack of good governance.Those personnel are in senior positions within the Organisation and include a
· CASA Group Executive Manager
· CASA Acting Executive Manager
· CASA Region Manager
· CASA Flight Operations Inspector

I must point out the CASA action was not taken based on any safety concerns, it was a “change of opinion” This matter commenced in October 2018 and continues.

I have attached a media pack for your initial consideration.

I respect that Mr Carmody the CEO of CASA has close allegiances with the Liberal party and feel that may be a contributing factor to my difficulties in getting my complaints independently assessed.

I have previously written to the PM, but my correspondence has not been responded to. That correspondence is contained in the media pack.

A pilot’s chats forum, mentioned in the media pack has over 250,000 views.

The purpose of this correspondence.

Shortly, I will be calling for a Royal Commission/Judicial Inquiry into CASA. I am confident I will receive widespread industry support. At that stage I will be sending more substantive correspondence to all Cross-Bench Senators. If you require any further information or a more detailed package, I can be contacted via the details in the media pack

Thankyou for consiuderation, respectfully, Glen Buckley



Respectfully, Glen Buckley
