WHILST not wanting to appear ageist …
Is this man too old to head up the FIRB?
-should it not be a concern a person of his skill and background is Chair of the FIRB at this point in his life?
-is he in a position where the past represents more in his thinking than what is happening right now?
-how well equipped is the FIRB to deal with the complexities of foreign organisations?
Take a moment to reflect on what Australia no longer owns since 2015 when this man was appointed to the FIRB in a move allegedly to strengthen the scrutiny of Chinese bids for key investments of potential security and strategic importance …
For example … Ports including Darwin Port … View:
Cubby station and numerous other large landholdings, Kidman for example, transport, mines, power, healthcare, commercial towers, renewable energy, water, dairy, airports … so much of our residential property!!
THEN ASK yourself do ….
These born to rule types
These self-appointed brains trusts
These better managers of everything
WELL you get the drift …
THINK … do they believe it’s a better World with their hands on the tiller ?
IT would seem to many of us that the Foreign Investment Review Board should be shut down … what’s in it for Australia and Australians ? As our National Estate … Our Sovereignty is rapidly diminishing?

‘Mr Irvine replaces Brian Wilson in the role. Mr Wilson attracted controversy late last year when it was revealed he was taking up a senior advisor role with the Carlyle Group in what was considered a perceived conflict of interest.
He later postponed taking up the position until the end of his term and promised to excuse himself from any involvement if the review board had any dealings with the firm.’
