Ian Burrell is a mechanical engineer and doctoral student who has managed his family manufacturing business in Australia for the last 36 years. The business has 75 employees, many of whom have been with the business for many years.
The author thinks of himself as an unaligned political pragmatist and wants to approach problems in a holistic manner. Politics tends to be driven by ideology, both left and right. It is better to look at each situation and see what it needs.
The author is very empathetic to the people of Australia for all the ways the crisis of the Pandemic has caused them to suffer, and wishes above all else to bring that suffering to a speedy and satisfactory conclusion.
