Noely Neate is not a journalist, nor a professional writer, just a punter toiling away on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.
She holds a MLL – a Master of Living Life – despite the stupidity of many of our nation’s political machinations and manoeuvrings. With considerable experience of negotiating day-to-day life, Noely uses her knowledge to highlight the nonsense often suggested by those in the corridors of power, and questions whether the punters are really being represented as a priority.
Noely does not belong to a political party, though is partial to Independents and in the interests of full disclosure was a member of the Democrats, back in the day — way, way, back in the day.
Her finest work to date is somehow turning a brainfart tweet into the crowd-sourced #MyBroadbandvReality submission to the Senate Select Committee on the National Broadband Network with a few other online mates.
