The first being, why doesn’t the same law apply to flying foxes?
With a human mortality rate over 50% and the first human victim dieing after the virus re-emerged some 13 months after the disease was first…Continue
And yet again our electricity prices go up, and yet again the Government shoves its head up its collective............. sandpit.
The Government wants prices to rise, as then people are forced to use less electricity, the same goes for tobacco, fuel and is being assisted by the new Carbon Tax. The Government believes the only way to stop us is to rob us blind so we can't afford the pleasures of life like electricity , transport, or heat.

Mr Windsor said providing stability for the country had been another key factor in…

LTE –Hendra, Flying Foxes and Magical Unicorns. (181 words)

This situation happened to me recently when a reporter asked:
“Even though Flying foxes may test positive for Hendra, shouldn’t they be protected from removal from their roosts or culling because they are native…Continue

Next week the Coalition and our senior Shadow Ministers will be speaking to thousands of people across Australia and taking their concerns back to Canberra.

Gerry Harvey offered his opinion on all things carbon one week and the next week Get Up gave him his Payback. Apparently its now a crime to use Native Timber in furniture according to Get Up, which they "accused" Gerry of doing. Big crime! Using Native Timber in the highest value market, appearance grade furniture, is an entirely sustainable industry. They are acting more and more like a group of bullying bigots.
