Upcoming advertisements for the Dick Smith Fair Go group!

What do you think about the ads I’m about to run in the paper to help promote the Dick Smith Fair Go group? Your donations to the group help to pay for them. Any suggestions?

Note: the TV ads referred to in the second ad will be run from August 15th.



  • Dick please stand for a government seat or come up with new party as we need it bad, both ALP & LNP
    are so short sighted it got beyond a joke, in VIC we have a train that never runs on time Melbourne to Albury
    they tell me it was quicker the 70s trains are out dated lines in need of repair, where is the water going to
    come from if we keep growing & look at the power & gas problems we have now short supply = high prices
    one of the highest prices in the world not bad for ones a lucky country ?, and all we keep hearing is one blames the other, we have people living in cars because they can’t get housing, & jobs where are they going to come from we will end up with more people on the doll the in the workforce, with factories closing every day due to cost of power, we have not had real pay rises for years, pensioners can’t afford to turn on heaters due to cost & low pensions, but we have Immigration people walking the streets, don’t work & never will & they get free health dental & housing , then I know of people who have top private health & when they go to hospital they are still
    out of pocket because they have private cover they can’t get in to a public hospital is this fair ??? .

  • Refugees. Dick apparently supports “[a] carefully screened humanitarian program of 20,000” (presumably per annum). But what if some crisis somewhere makes it imperative that Australia takes more refugees than permitted under its population policy? I realise, of course, that a policy is just a policy and in extreme situations could be set aside, but given that apparently the world does throw up some genuine refugees from time to time , the refugee issue needs addressing in a population context. How do we minimise the risk of genuine refugees blowing out the population limit – Temporary Protection Visas? More strenuous efforts to fund resettlement in other countries?

  • Allied to the population issue is that of “quality of the population”. Presently we have inter-generational dysfunction because dysfunctional people are bringing children into a dysfunctional family environment and these children, in turn, tend to also become dysfunctional and go on to have children of their own and the cycle is never broken. We need programs targeting at-risk individuals that seek to encourage (by, for example, financial inducement) those people not to have families at least until their own circumstances improve. Conversely, females could be financially rewarded if they refrain from having children until they are 18 with a diminishing payment up to and including age 21? Now these might not be feasible solutions and someone could come up with better ones but I suggest we aren’t doing ourselves any favours as a society by failing to address the issue of irresponsible reproduction.

  • Go you good thing! Mr Smith you are a brave man to speak out against the unthinking globalists who wish only to serve themselves and enslave the rest of us. Lets shut the doors for a while and Make Australia Beautiful Again!

  • How can all the left wingers argue with the facts? Its not racist, its just facts and common scene.
    Unfortunately people don’t like the truth as often it prevents them from self gratification.

    I have no problem with a little cultural diversity but enough is enough, and to make it worse the majority of the people we are bringing in have no intentions or means of contributing to our society.

    It is getting to the point now where migrants with foreign values are starting to outnumber those who value Australia the way it is.
    Soon enough they will be the voting majority and then there is no correcting the problem.

    They come from country’s that are already over populated and live with an every man for them selves mentality.
    I’m not racist at all, but it does bring a tear to my eyes to watch the country I grew up in have its culture and opportunities butchered by an influx of immigration.

    If the entire planet continues to expand its population at this rate, we had better start looking a bit harder at moving to Mars.

    Why cant the Australian government just look to other countries (USA, China ect..) and see what problems over population has caused

    Its time for Australia to put Australia first, fix our own problems before we try to fix the worlds!

    So good to see an intelligent person putting there neck out to help the country. Such an unselfish move and I take my hat off to you for that!.

    I hope the population gets behind you, I will!!!

  • One of the hurdles that will need to be overcome is that a number of the people listed in the Thimbs Up section of the Advert have been so vilified in mainstream media and marginalised, that those with a vested interest in mainting the pro-growth status quo will seek to consign your rational and considered approach to the underlying issues, to the fringe. Just need to maintain the momentum. It may well be that a new politica force based on a fairgo for everyone is required

  • Thank god there are still people in this world like you Dick. You have always put your love for Australia First, you have not just talked, you have shared your wealth to try to promote Australian made and everything Australia. Your family and all of Australia should be very proud of you.
    I do not have a lot of money but if you need help my Husband and I will be there with the money we do have.

  • the population explosion x development is a threat to all nations and humans in general. Biologically we all lived in a closed system called earth which is unable to replenish itself at the accelerating rate we are consuming its resources.
    This post WW2 boom and bust is inevitable with out serious charge immediately.

  • Dick Smith has a trusting and trueblue presence about himself , Australians will be attracted to his idea’s for Australias future ,We will follow you and trust you Dick.

  • Dick mate you are copping out. Start a political party. I know you feel you dont need the hassle. But its your calling. You will easily gain heaps of votes and be able to create the chages required.

  • Tell you what, Dick, here’s the deal. Now, as we know, you’re an exceptionally generous man. In the past few years you’ve donated $70m to the Salvation Army alone. I wouldn’t give the Salvation Army or indeed any other charity (other than WIRES) tuppence because, as I’ve complained about before on your site, they lack manners in that they ignore “no doorknocking signs” on peoples’ homes. In general their practices (doorknocking/spruiking at shopping centres) add to the coarsening of our society. Dick, if you want to donate to the Salvation Army, that’s your business but if you genuinely want to help hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of your fellow Australians who are terrorised on a daily basis by Charities you might consider making it a condition of your largesse that the beneficiary of your donation has in place a policy of not entering upon premises where a “no doorknockers sign” is affixed to the premises. If you agree to that, and I hope you do, then I’ll give you a few bob for your political campaign.

  • A Dick Smith party would leave the rest for dead. Bring it on I say. We don’t need rabid policy or emotional rhetoric. All we have to do is find the right people to do the Job.

    • Fantastic call to arms about our ridiculously high immigration policy Dick
      What you say is going to happen is actually happening now in some regional areas with rural families being neglected for services especially medical
      There are pockets of extreme poverty in some farming areas that are not being addressed and family values are being disintegrated
      Australia is being ruined by governments letting in too many unproductive people who have to be supported by the few that really do work

      • I would tone that rhetoric down as it is just ignorant. Majority of people who do come here are productive.

        Nevertheless, there is an environmental/infrastructural carrying capacity of the land that if exceeded will cause problem even if everyone is productive.

  • THANK YOU Mr Smith! A prominent, well respected, intelligent person to help get some commonsense debate about sustainable migration policy. Turbo charged migration (200,000+ permanent migrants a year), is not popular or wanted, yet why do we still get it? Please more ad’s to embarrass and show up “our” politicians, so everyday Australians really get to know what’s going on.

  • Great stuff Dick. I have been a supporter of you for a long time. I have also read your book some time ago. Not sure how to get Liberal, Labour, or Greens to bring this up. In my opinion it is political donations that are behind Big Australia. All political donations should be illegal. To compensate there needs to be a big increase in the dollars per vote given back to the parties by the government. This would help towards a real democracy, instead of a badly skewed democracy.

    • Dick , I have had a lot of ” cut through ” with the following .

      Australia’s Debt

      It is a “secret” that on average , every extra person that is added to Australia’s population numbers , is a unit of debt .
      This is irrevocably supported by one economic statistic .
      That stat is the continuing and chronic, Current Account Deficit.

      This deficit means that on average , every Australian now is a unit debt . We are adding 1.2 million units of debt ( people ) to Australia , every 3 years . The fiscal results for Australia has been catastrophic .

      Debt, wholesale public and private asset sales , affordability of the basics of life , the starving of support for the CSIRO and the abolition of free tertiary education, are all a direct result of the cumulative impact of ignoring this one “secret ” truth.

      Stabilise the population growth , then the debt will stabilise and capital will be liberated for productive investment in research for exports and retraining .

      Balanced Migration and Balanced Fertility achieves stabilisation .

      Currently for balanced migration…… as 70,000 people leave each year , then we can bring in 70,000.”
      As our birthrate is DOUBLE our deathrate …. Govt benefits after 2 children must taper off to send a powerful message that 2 children is the most appropriate family size financially and environmentally .
      The taper-off of Govt benefits should be significant but relatively small for the 3rd child and a steep decline with the 4th and any subsequent child .

    • David , intuitively giving taxpayer’s money to political parties is fundamentally wrong.

      It entenches them and makes it harder for new parties to arise. In addition , knowing the cunning if the power elites , it will not achieve your aims.

      Better I think to adopt the Swiss referenda system . This takes away their power and breaks their stranglehold .

      “4) The electorate has a veto-right on laws: If anybody is able to find 50,000 citizens signing a form demanding for a referendum within 3 months, a referendum must be held. Laws do only need to find a majority of the national electorate to pass a referendum, not a majority of cantons. Referendums on more than a dozen laws per year are not unusual in Switzerland. ”
      Best, Ralph

  • Onya Dick for telling it like it is .. all major parties are too influences by donation to do what’s right for Australia. This crazy immigration scheme has to end .. before it bankrupts us.

  • Do you only want our money, or does the “group” imply people contact? I have no money to give, but I have labour and skills.

  • Bout time we had some one to lead. Why can’t we have a public conversation about this????
    Sick of hearing its racist to talk about immigration levels!!!!
    I’ve signed up and donated, what else can we do….let’s get into these bastards,I’ve had a gut full.
    Ps. I’m not racist, I’ve been married to an Asian woman for 15 yrs and we’ve got two boys
