My letter to Luke Howarth and his reply

Attention Luke Howarth MP

To say that I am shocked by your statement on ABC RN on Tuesday morning July 9th, is the least of it. It was yet more confirmation that this Liberal and Nationals Government is shirking their responsibility regarding Human Rights and Human Respectability and Responsibility. #RRR

May I make a suggestion and that is to equate ‘small percentage’ with those who willingly choose to be homeless, the swaggie, the surfie and the traveller. I really don’t think you have any conception of why people become homeless. I would really appreciate you being up-front and telling the public your version of why Homelessness occurs.

My beautiful daughter became homeless last year. She had been in her 2 bedroom unit ten years. Her rent went up from $180 to $280. Now is this fair? She was a model tenant. The man who is renting her old unit hasn’t turned on the electricity for over a year. He walks around with a torch. He can’t cook, watch TV or have a fan on in this increasing heatwave after heatwave. No doubt you live in air-conditioning, when others are suffering terribly.

I am now asking you publicly (as this will accompany my petition) to plan an economical way to eliminate homelessness.

I have many suggestions I can share with you.



Sandra Barlow

P.S. If you think this job is too difficult, ask for it to be given to someone who will attend to it ethically and humanely.

About eleanawi

Hi, I am Eleana Winter-Irving, a very youthful 79 year old. I own land and work hard. I built my own 4 bedroom house with a little help from my friends and I still regularly use a chain saw, fell weed trees and chop firewood. I keep fit by working hard and I also love dancing. If I am not out dancing I am at home, not anything old fashioned like waltzes, lol. I am a freestyler. I read a lot, love photography and going to places I haven’t been to before. I have travelled extensively all over the world to more than 30 countries and lived in 6 different countries. I have 2 children, both girls and both happy with long term partners. I became a grandmother in 2012. I can’t say the same for myself. I seem to be unlucky with men. I am very warm and affectionate with the ‘right’ person. I have New Age leanings, but not over the top. I am a Gnostic, so I don’t follow any religion. Religion is for those who are lost and can’t rely on their conscience to guide them. Yes, I am different from most people, especially women my age. If you dare to follow my blogs you will quickly notice that they are usually controversial. That’s me, I am controversial. I date guys in their twenties and thirties. They find me attractive and I find them attractive. I won’t date someone I am not attracted to, though it doesn’t matter for friendships. I am not into sport at all, though I was hockey and netball captain at school year after year. I like most music, except for heavy metal, rock ‘n’ roll, country and western, hip hop and rap. I do like some hip hop and rap, depends on what they are saying. I was born in India, educated in England and Australia and now live permanently in Australia. I have no claim to academia, though I consider myself intelligent, not intellectual. If you can’t think of anything to comment on about any of my blogs, that’s fine with me. I know it’s difficult when a subject is unusual. I write to get people thinking and of course if you do have something to say, I am all ears, lol. One thing, I doubt you will be bored with any of my posts. Eleana
