10 June 2022, the AIBS sent a missile to the VBA.

A Friday morning “vote of no confidence” in the VBA, its CEO, its management, and all that goes with it.


A return missile sent by yet another late Friday press release at forty paces tries to take the high moral ground over the AIBS. It contained a series of “doing word” motherhood statements without any detailed responses to the list of issues and grievances raised by the AIBS.

Trailing statements extracted from the VBA press release.

The AIBS raised incredibly critical and specific allegations, including some that could have long-lasting ramifications.

This standard government, late Friday afternoon fluffy duck press release deliberately did not answer any of the questions and snubbed the AIBS as if it were suffering from a fit of lover’s pique.

It makes a mockery of the thousands of families damaged and who lost their life savings, marriages, and sanity to the rogue building industry and its surrounds. Our Team has written to the parties and the Minister asking for a realistic explanation of the unanswered questions, and with it, we will send them a copy of the new diagram on Maslow’s Law.

Our Team is also working on a BLOG about Maslow’s law that will be easily downloadable from the new “templates” section of the website.

Watch that template space! Our Team is in the process of drawing up a series of templates using the “Elly May” character to assist others in their dealings with all the entities involved in the building industry, most importantly the VBA.
