Comment on WA communities profit from camels, not here by Charlie Carter.

Oh dear, where to start;
Hal, CLC is a Commonwealth Statuary Authority under the Federal Land Rights Act.
It is bound by all the regulations covering these, and is one of the most rigorously scrutinised bodies of its kind.
WA Land Councils are subject to totally different laws and control.
Alan, camels ARE feral pests. They have been trashing the environment in Central Australia for a couple of decades. Commercial development cannot control the numbers.
Farmed animals may become a viable industry, but despite the efforts of Governments, and lots of public money it hasn’t happened yet.
Trevor, wishful thinking is no match for commercial reality. Even if it could be harvested at a viable cost (from the Simpson desert for example) which it can’t, it is still problematic.
What about the existing meat industries?
Ever heard the slogan “give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Give a man a line he eats for a lifetime”.
Giving away meat would destroy the meat producers in the target economy.

What kind of world is this?
Yes, I can see the similarities now that I look, and perhaps the fictional dream is combining the two somewhat.
Being originally from NSW I always thought of Sturt as being based there, which he was originally, only basing his third expedition from Adelaide.
And he did suffer from scurvy on his final trip.


What kind of world is this?
“From this first story we move to ‘At Failure Creek’, to the perspective of a “land explorer”, recognisable as Captain Charles Sturt: a man in a “weakened and near blind state”, perhaps close to death himself …

… to the dream of the dying man – of a glorious imagined parade down Rundle Mall”

This is blatantly, obviously, StuArt, not Sturt.


Guilty: unanimous jury verdict for Peace Pilgrim
Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison.

The ex-Pom who nearly missed the boat
Alex, from my very limited understanding of constitutional law, any legislation that attempted to vary the meaning or application of the Constitution would be unconstitutional.
It is my understanding that the only way out is a referendum to change the Constitution.


Gas deal: They can’t blame Giles for this one!
I’m not sure what the problem is here?
Given the present gas supply and price issues, locking in a supply at (presumably) 2009 price would seem to be a smart idea.
Again, given the present “crisis” in supply and price, selling off the surplus at a handsome profit should be child’s play.
