"MORE THAN HALF of young Australians are putting off having children," according to an ABC article yesterday. It quotes 29 year-old Sam who says she's open to having kids, but has to pay off $100,000 uni' debt and then own her own home before even thinking about it....

Dave’s Bio, continued…

Christian by choice and conservative by coincidence, Dave is a writer & commentator on all things cultural & political. His area of special interest is the Biblical role of the Church – Christians – in politics & culture. He believes in objective Truth, personal responsibility & reliability, strong families & nations, maximum freedom and teeny tiny governments, and that all good laws flow from the Mind of God.

Dave’s videos, podcasts & writing feature expert interviews and commentary about important public issues. He interviews national & international thought leaders like professors & politicians, lecturers & lobbyists, industry and church leaders – all with very diverse backgrounds, worldviews and opinions about the issues that affect and shape our society.

Dave Pellowe contributed a chapter about freedom of religion in the Australian Constitution in the 2023 book, “The Spirit Behind The Voice – The Religious Dimension of the “Voice” Proposal“, edited by Gabriël Moens AM and Professor Augusto Zimmermann.

Dave Pellowe has also recently begun helping right thinking authors to self publish with better marketing and profits with his publishing brand, Locke Press.

Dave’s first hand political experience includes being a successful local election campaign media consultant and then campaign director (winning a very safe seat from Labor). Dave served the Family First Party for many state & federal elections on the Queensland State Executive until the party eventually merged with the Australian Conservatives.

He has been independent of any political party since taking up commentary.
