Now, for your delectation, the final podcast in this series of excerpts from my interviews with Perth mining company executive and boom beneficiary, Mr Hilton Casey-Urqhuart-Newton-Thomas.
Here, Casey-Urqhuart-Newton-Thomas identifies the 3 virtues he considers essential if you want to “get on in life” – which I presume means heaving home seriously fat bacon, like him. Yet, as he tells it, life for the triple income salary earner does not always go down as smoothly as a 1990 Grange.

In this, the third and penultimate post in this podcast series, successful mining company executive Mr Hilton Casey-Urqhuart-Newton-Thomas (now there’s an acronym!) reveals why he is thriving from the Perth boom and points an accusatory finger directly at those who are not.
Don’t get mad, busted bum boomtime battlers – get wise! Listen in and take careful note of all Mr Casey-Urqhuart-Newton-Thomas has to say.
In essence, he claims that anyone can do as well as he has and if you’re one of the have-nots, it’s your fault.

You ain’t heard nothin’ yet! Ignore this podcast at your material and spiritual peril.

After a frustrating delay due to technical issues, the podcasting wrinkles have been ironed out smooth as Hilton’s blue business shirt. So, on with the Hilton interviews.
Hilton, you’ll recall, is one of the legions of mining company employees who have struck serious paydirt in the boom city of Perth, Western Australia.
For those who have just tuned in, in the initial podcast of this 4-part series (see previous post), we learnt that Hilton is a mining company executive in his thirties living his dream as Manager of Documents. Not for him the sweat and grime of the open-cut mines of the far North – Hilton’s office is in a high rise block in St George’s Terrace. Commuting between there and his fine seafront home in the nouveau opulent Perth suburb of Iluka, Hilton enjoys a lux lifestyle with his wife and 2 kids. Wine cellar, Yallingup holiday house, top of the wozza 4WD with a chrome bullbar to die for (and indeed, that’s your guaranteed fate if you’re in a car hit side on by this baby) – Hilton has it all.
