Welcome to the ever changing
world of PWT
And now you can see all our shenanigans on Facebook.
At PWT we are sailors as well as equipment suppliers.
Check out the Farrier F-36 being built right here.
F-36 shown is not the one being built here.
I'm going to get on my soap box here.
Do you know what it is and what effect a false allegation can have on your life?
Ask Josephine Greensill, she got a 5 1/2 year jail term courtesy of a false allegation?
Or just ask me!
On 4th March 2015 I had two Melbourne police arrive at
because of a false allegation made against me in 1987. Yup, 1987!
They gave no notice, they had no warrant and no real purpose to be here.
I knew about this allegation back in 1987. There was zero evidence, it had no
foundation whatever, but that doesn't stop the cops persecuting you for the rest
your life. I believe this is a fundamental infringement of my human rights.
been one shred of evidence, just one shred,
would take an entirely
different view and say, fair enough, they have to
this up. On 4th March
I had detectives Nigel Freebairn and Angela
to my door from
chasing me for a "Voluntary" DNA sample,
we talked for
a while and
made this statement to me.
"We can get very heavy if we need to".
Caroline and I have been together for almost two decades and the look on her face
was one of pure horror. After they left she said to me. "What have you done that is
so bad that they have come all this way and threaten you into giving a DNA sample"?
A very, very, good question. One that I cannot answer and no-body else will.
Being an old bloke I may be a bit touchy and, perhaps, not the brightest
sky, and I don't know how others may have seen it, but in my very
and honest opinion I had also
perceived that statement to be a threat.
As I have no police record whatever, I took exception to this comment and what
I considered to be an attack on my girl and my present life, I complained
professional standards, the chief commissioner
and the police minister.
What I got in return was the proverbial "run around".
Being as I have never had any dealings with police, I didn't really know the ropes
and, I guess, that made me an easy target.
This whole episode has
write up the
full story for publication in order to advise and alert other people that
happen to you'. If it does, I would urge you to make your feelings
known to as many
people as possible, don't just cop it sweet. It is fundamentally
and the more people who complain about it the more chance there is of
something done about it. So write to the chief commissioner, professional
standards, the police minister. Don't just email it, also send it registered mail so
that they have and when
they received it.
Under normal circumstances I would never have dreamed of
writing this up,
perfectly happy living quietly, minding my own business, in the bush with
where it belonged, 30 years in the past.
Until two cops decide to drag it all up and open up the wound.
Now I consider the general
public need to know about this crap
that goes on.
So now I ask this question.
Do you trust Victoria police? I don't!
If someone were to tell you that police came to their door, in Northern NSW,
notice, without a warrant and without proper purpose, and threatened them into
DNA sample because of
"false" allegation made
almost 30 years previously,
I reckon you would say,
"No way, this is 21st
But it happened to me in March 2015.
Even worse is this. Complaint is impossible,
not impossible, but you get shunted
pillar to post, one department to the next, and back again by lots
people who, you get the feeling, are
never going to find anything against their 'kinfolk'
and reckon you'll go
away if they run you around in circles
Worse than this. Even the police minister, Noonan, is powerless against the might of
He says, "We cannot interfere with police operations".

him off the payroll, I reckon.
Worse than this, when I then write up the truth, the whole truth and nothing
but the truth,
received a solicitors letter talking about libel and that the officer
feels 'offended' (that I
wrote the truth).
Worse than that they wanted me to print a
retraction and state that it was all false and that I made it up. Does that reek of
a cover up or what? It seems to me that Victoria

What does that tell
you about the direction our society is heading?
If I came up to you and said, "Give me your wallet or I can get really heavy if I need to",
I feel sure
that would be 'perceived' as my having issued a threat.This, in my opinion, is no different.
I recently googled '7.30 victoria police'. If you do this you will see stories of kids
capsicum sprayed for trying to evade a couple of $'s train fare. The demeaning
female officers within the force. Victoria police have shot to death people who were not
carrying a firearm.

Victoria - The Place NOT to Be.
The cops who came here went out of their way to come and see an 'innocent'
living quietly in the bush,
in order to get a 'Voluntary' DNA
Based on what?
A 1987 allegation that had no foundation whatsoever.
Worse than this. Now that it is obvious that the allegation was false, they won't
prosecute the person who made the false allegation. False allegation is actually
it is a crime,
be, and carries severe penalties - if they bother
to follow it up. So, believe me,
I am not about to make a false allegation. I just
to make sure i've got this right. I have now been cleared
of any wrongdoing.
This means the other person has done wrong. I have had to cop
the shit from
police. They have had to cop none. Police have wasted a swag of
payer funds. But the person who caused all the trouble in the first
scot free with a grin on their face. Have I got that right???
This raises a question to me: 'Why is it the cops are so intent on chasing me
my life, presuming me to be guilty of something until proven innocent, trying to
convict me of
something I obviously didn't do, and then
apply the law to
who they have now confirmed made the false
allegation in the first'?
Is my nose the wrong shape, or what?
I might be
a bit silly and senile but I just don't get it.
For 11 months now I have attempted to get justice
via the proper, 'prescribed'
with, predictably, no success whatsoever. So now I feel I have no other
avenue but go public, for what
good it will or will not do. At least it may educate
some people as to the pitfalls
of being honest with police. Had I been wiser, I
would have told these bastards to
piss right off. "Get off my property, you are
trespassing". But I gave them the courtesy
of my time, they were given our
big mistake and it won't ever happen again.
If you have any interest in this TRUE story, which includes the entire conversation
while the cops were here in March. It includes, lies, slander and intimation
by Victoria police then:

They may be operating within the letter of the law but what is happening isn't right.

Tweed Shire Council.
Public Service or Secret Service?
This was brought about by a recent, (and still going) incident caused by the
inappropriate behaviour of a Tweed Shire council ranger. It highlighs the arrogence
of local council to "stone wall' people making a complaint and to what I believe
amounts to a closing of ranks to cover up the incident. I find it really interesting - if a little disturbing.
It seems to me that our politicians really
