Fireworks expected over Deputy Mayor position
There is no entitlement to the position of Deputy Mayor and I would be surprised if Steve Brown expected to gain the position on the basis of the votes in the council election.
The D/Mayor is elected by the Council, and they will take many things into account, and come up with the best person for the job. Let’s hope the Council can get over this first hurdle without acrimony.
Eli has handed back the boxing gloves, that is a good start.

@ Steve. Your grasp of the Constitution on the point you raise is a bit dubious I think.
S 122: “The Parliament may make laws for the government of any territory surrendered by any State to and accepted by the Commonwealth, or of any territory placed by the Queen under the authority of and accepted by the Commonwealth, or otherwise acquired by the Commonwealth, and may allow the representation of such territory in either House of the Parliament to the extent and on the terms which it thinks fit.”
If I were you I wouldn’t stump up too much money on lawyers fees going to the High Court in support of your view.

@ Steve Brown: Ha! Interesting comment, bet you enjoyed reminding Jimmy of that.
However, re your comment “an idiotic undemocratic, I believe unconstitutional, electoral system …” I’m interested to learn why you think it is unconstitutional?

Don’t let this knock you off your stride, Jimmy, we need you to keep representing your values and ideas in public forums, including the Council.
I don’t always agree with you but you have made an invaluable contribution over the years.


It’s remote, desolate and worth billions
There is also a project envisaged for Lake Mackay near the WA border. Geoscience Australia has some background info on potash.


Step closer for rare earth mine employing up to 370
Good news all round. Good for the Centre, good for Australia and good for the world.
China has a stranglehold on these rare earth minerals at present and this will make the global market more competitive. Hope it goes ahead.
