Wilson was a key advocate for Australia adopting same-sex marriage, is an outspoken critic of the Chinese Communist Party,[2] and has been active in debates on tax policy.[3]. Wilson called on National Cabinet to increase the amount of Australians able to return from overseas on a state-by-state basis.

"[5], Wilson began his recording career in Atlanta, on the Southern Tracks label with music publisher Bill Lowery. The treaty was later abandoned.

[39] Wilson supports same-sex marriage in Australia and has married his partner since the laws have changed. In 2009, Wilson and Roger Keiss wrote a detective book entitled Happy New Year – ted, about serial killer Ted Bundy. [30] Specifically, the Speaker criticised Wilson for having a private website for the inquiry that was badged as official but which solicited submissions and attendees at public hearings from the perspective of opposing Labor policy, and for arranging inquiry meetings to coincide with the meetings of an activist group that was opposing Labor's policy. [44], Australian politician, policy analyst (born 1980), The Morrison Government and franking credits campaign.

He co-produced Allnight Allstars with Muscle Shoals engineer Steve Melton. Parliamentary committee proceedings often contain an element of partisanship.

The full list", "Franking credits, dividend imputation and 'retiree tax' explained", "Geoff Wilson admits he part-funded franking credits website", "9781922449030-THE NEW SOCIAL CONTRACT: Renewing the liberal", "Shrinking home ownership is shrinking the Liberals: Wilson", "This MP Is Being Roasted For Telling People to Buy A House If They're Worried About Homelessness", "Curfews 'a violation of people's rights and freedoms, "Tim Wilson calls on anti-same-sex marriage MPs to abstain from vote", "Same-sex marriage: Tim Wilson proposes to his partner after bill introduced to House of Reps", https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/mar/11/liberal-mp-tim-wilson-marries-partner-ryan-bolger, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Tim_Wilson_(Australian_politician)&oldid=986457486, Members of the Australian House of Representatives, Members of the Australian House of Representatives for Goldstein, Liberal Party of Australia members of the Parliament of Australia, Short description is different from Wikidata, Use Australian English from February 2016, All Wikipedia articles written in Australian English, Wikipedia articles with WORLDCATID identifiers, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 1 November 2020, at 00:10. Can anyone tell me this, because I think about it a lot and I don’t know the answer: why are politicians content to trash conventions that matter for two minutes of short-term advantage?

When it comes to the sanctity of committees, a few things can be observed. [6] During this time, he argued against plain cigarette packaging,[7] and to vote against the proposed local government referendum in Australia. Tim Wilson in his hurry to advance, or to “help”, has overreached, and anyone who cares about parliamentary conventions can see his position isn’t tenable. Voters keen to understand who is exerting influence in their democracy can talk to the hand. It can engage in fatuous and misleading made-for-2GB hyperbole if it wants to continue to race to the bottom, and be congratulated for that in some quarters and called out in others. Wilson was employed by the Institute of Public Affairs for seven years, serving as Director of Climate Change Policy and of Intellectual Property and Free Trade.

"[34] In September 2020, Wilson was criticised in responding to concerns regarding the level of the superannuation guarantee rate for women on Twitter with “[I’d prefer that] they can buy their own home so they’re not homeless”.

[43], Wilson has opted out of the My Health Record system.

[22] Following the announcement of a deadline for Australians to opt out of the MyHealthRecord scheme, Wilson publicly opted-out and called for the Government to make 'opt-in' the default position. [8], Wilson died of a heart attack on February 26, 2014.

Unfortunately Wilson can’t see it, and that, right there, is our problem. The announced lineup included the Bob and Tom show personalities (Bob Kevoian, Tom Griswold, Kristi Lee, and Chick McGee), as well as Dr. Gonzo, Heywood Banks, Drew Hastings, and Donny Baker. [11][12][13] On appointment to the Human Rights Commission, Wilson resigned his membership of the Liberal Party. Tim Wilson in his hurry to advance, or to “help”, has overreached, and anyone who cares about parliamentary conventions can see his position isn’t tenable.

[32] It explored the origins of Australian liberalism and argued that home ownership is critical to build and maintain a constituency for the liberal philosophy.

Wilson was posthumously inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in September 2015. [26], When Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a spill of leadership positions in 2018, Wilson supported Turnbull[27] against Peter Dutton.

The foundational question is this: does representative politics continue to work when the citizenry doesn’t know whose interests are being represented? It’s also OK – amazingly – to be a shareholder in Wilson Asset Management (owned by Geoff Wilson, a different Wilson and a distant relative), and coordinate with that same fund manager to get opponents of the policy out with placards at the same time as taxpayer-funded hearings are happening. Again, in that mindset, it’s OK for Wilson to decline to answer direct questions about who is funding that campaign website which is pushing submissions into the taxpayer-funded process.

Wilson stated that he believed the curfew was “unjustified and does not meet the justification for a limitation on Victorians’ human rights” due to public statements by the Chief Health Officer and Victorian Police Commissioner.

Timothy Collins Wilson (August 5, 1961 – February 26, 2014) was an American comedian and country music artist, whose act combined stand-up comedy and original songs.[1]. Wilson's brother rushed him to a nearby hospital and Wilson suffered a massive heart attack and died at 9:15 p.m. Wilson left behind his wife and two children.[10][11].

What a relief.
