What should Drew Pavlou do next?

If UA is so corrupt that it can’t see the issues surrounding Professor Hoj, then let it destroy itself, Drew:

MB humbly suggests that you, Drew, are wasted on this issue. All of this goodwill you’re accumulating for such a brave stand against CCP corruption might be wasted if it is not shoehorned into something durable.

How about you start the Australian Youth Party? It should run candidates (starting in the senate) nationwide in federal elections to fight against:

  • ridiculous house prices;
  • the immigration-led wages and living standards crush;
  • a budget structure that rorts the young to support greedy Boomers;
  • human and sovereign violations, including CCP incursions in Tibet, Xinjang, Hong Kong and Australia;
  • economic structure that favours oligarchy;
  • climate change and environmental destruction.

Australian youth as a demographic has been mercilessly abused by the Coalition, cynically exploited by Labor, betrayed by the Fake Greens, and is in desperate need of its own voice.

You’ll need support on how to create a grassroots movement, and policy platform research (which MB can help provide), but it is dying to be done and you are the man with the profile and energy to do it.

  1. Really needs to be mentored to take his political career to the next level. Canberra as an independent senator representing Qld yoof.

      • He’d be wasted in that organisation and you know it.
        Absolutely broken is the Laborist party.

        Has anyone here got a line to him directly?

        I know I’d be voting for him, even though I’m on the wrong side of 39. Wait, under 45 is still youthy right?

        Lol ALP … Like the Liberals they spend too much time on social media posting to their followers and bathing in the “likes”…………… instead of actual being brave and fighting the fight they should fighting…………..

        If you are female and white, you become a “Karen” automatically at 25……………

      Says a lot about who segments of Australia have gotten in bed with.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he probably wont share the prevailing MB view that immigration is the major (/only) cause of our woes.

    Yous might want to be careful what you wish for with a “youth party”.

    • That view isn’t too far fetched, he confessed in the 60 Min segment that he’s left leaning on the political spectrum.

      Hopefully he develops his views further and REALLY comes to understand the actual drivers in our economy. Maybe then can he focus his political efforts on making an impact.

      I’m sure he’ll be branded as a racist/sexist/transphobe/whatever then.

        LOL. Shouldn’t have been news to anyone, let alone something to “confess”. As I said the other day, if he were getting profile for any of his other soc1al just!ce view points (<a href="https://twitter.com/DrewPavlou/status/1288258923368071168?s=20&quot; like, say, our human rights violations around refugees) he would have been laughed out of MB months ago.

        The “left” has SFA to do with our current predicaments. It hasn’t had meaningful political influence for decades.

        The last 40 years have seen the western world run by increasingly right-wing and fascist Governments.

        • The left will destroy itself as it always has. They always find new and innovative ways to eat their own. They have no time to contemplate their enemies as they are too busy digesting their friends. Tastes like purity.

          Scomo, Dutton and the Property Council don’t need to defend their self interest… Dr Smithy, Sally McManus and impressionable facebook-addicted starry-eyed self-described communists will do it for them, and at no cost.

          Mr Pavlou looks very white and very male to me… certainly too much of both to be outspoken… the woke folks are already sharpening their guillotines no doubt, salivating at the thought of the singing blade. He has no future in progressive politics. Fortunately there is an abundance of tenured academic positions in the philosophy department, yes? He will not need to compromise his positions at all when he is working nights at the local abottoir in 5 years time while pretending not to exist.

          But for now, it is glorious. No tears, only dreams.

    • I doubt you’re far out on the immigration limb considering his age, being subjected to Uni Psyops, & likely not having to heavily compete in the workforce yet.

      While MB chases contemporaneous themes (like most news/blogs), you can’t be blind to the fact that it discusses a lot more about our pustuled political/economic underbelly than you’re giving credit for.

      Bring Drew on, he couldn’t make it worse & just might stir a bit of action among the all too comfy class.

        I have been reading MB since day dot (and before).

        The focus on immigration has become increasing monomaniacal, and these days a substantial fraction of posts are quite clearly just dog-whistling click/comment-bait. I sure hope it’s paying the bills because it’ll be eviscerating credibility amongst the kind of people Drew probably hangs around with.

        • Sometimes I feel I’ve been here too long too, but it’s not a measuring contest, nor does time served or membership give me rights to steer MB’s way.

          I agree they’ve changed (as have other sites), I’ve never agreed with everything they proffer, but they choose what they want to put forward. I choose my cruise however & I do skip more articles than I used to. In the same breath they (& the commenters) still help me see through the crap being spun by our ruling class & are a good second set of eyes regarding the shenanigans going on, & on markets too.

          You might be right regarding Drew & MB? But I know of no other place where he could cut his teeth where there’s more candor than the bias that many other sites proffer. (Yes I know MB has them too, we all do – & we’re all allowed to). If you know of any, I’m all eyes.

            I do not, which is why I find the tone changes of the last few years so frustrating.

  3. Marry Greta and have lots of little Pavlovians born pre-wired for publicity and posturing.

    It would only be youth party in name.
    Does the labour party represent workers?
    Do the greens policies represent people who care for the environment?
    I’m sure with the policies you suggest it would get a much broader support than just the youth of this country.
    I for one am still of the belief that someone youthful like Drew will drag not only the young but us older ones as well behind policies that can benefit the great majority of this country.

    • He should create a new party called “The Baby Boomer Party” and then he should be just as true to its name as Labor, Greens, Liberal have been true to theirs.

      He would get most of the votes from greedy boomers and then shaft them mightily Paul Keating style. If you can’t control boomers you can’t control the economy.

  5. MB, Offer him a membership. If he takes advantage of it, it’ll at least give him access to some good themes, some good minds & a broad spectrum of ideas/demographics/links to chew on. Help him see through the snow…..
