People often ask - why is Addington Action so successful?

The answer is - Addington Action is really just a continual series of working bees with a cheque book attached. As a formal organisation it is very primitive and rough and ready.

So there is not too much paper nonsense to get in the way of doing what's needed to help people as fast as possible. There is only 1 membership meeting a month that lasts an hour.

All this is a strength when so many other groups are bogged do ...

But market forces have ravaged what was once our flagship state broadcaster, leaving it almost braindead, a fact that might raise a smile from Bruce, who examines the effects of an unrestrained free market in this fine doco and two others that w ...
