The grandfathered list

A secret list protects 1500 Australian companies from having to disclose any tax information to regulators. If you own a company on this list, you get complete tax secrecy. I read Heath Aston in the SMH on this last week; he says as a result, there’s an underground economy in buying and selling these valuable company names.

I got word of one of these deals going down and went down to Melbourne’s legal district to secretly record the trade.

Sydney launch of #takedown

I’m launching my book #takedown at Books Kinokuniya in Sydney! Come along if you can!

Kino’s FB event page for it. More importantly, Kino would really love you to RSVP if you’re coming by either phone: 02 9262 7996, email: promotions-aus@kinokuniya.com, or via Eventbrite here.

Not only are we launching at my favourite bookshop in Sydney, but I’ll have a chat with one of the best cartoonists in Australia (and one of my favourite guys on Earth), PAT GRANT. We’ll put some kind of audiovisual schnazz on a screen. Who knows what else. We’ll go get beers after.

I am also pleased to announce that SENATOR THE HON. GEORGE BRANDIS, QC will be launching the book! Well, I’ve sent him one and invited him to. I hope all you artists out there have been doing the same!
