Comment on CDU oval a public place no longer by Surprised!.

It’s a sad state of affairs when it comes to this.
We all talk about the need and benefits for kids to get out into the fresh air and exercise, but the element of bad bastards in our society forces the fences to go up and the gates to be locked.
When I was growing up, we loved to go to the park and fly a kite, kick the footy or play cricket. Apart from giving us exercise and having fun, it may have helped us to keep us out of trouble too.
Why is it, that the people who generally do the right thing in society are continually penalised by these bad bastards.
Why not punish the bad ones instead and remove their privileges?
Oh that’s right, you need pollies with guts.

CDU oval a public place no longer
Makes sense to me BUT we also need real penalties for those who vandalise the place too.
So we’re back to pollies with guts!

Steve Brown: You raise some excellent points Steve, however you seem to be overlooking one very important fact.
If the government wanted to consult the masses, they should have taken the opinions more seriously.
The fact that they didn’t, is disrespectful to the taxpayer. So, was it just lip service?
I think you’ll find that this may be what has pissed people off.


Fewer pokies, help for gambling addicts

We have a habit of trying to solve issues from the effects rather than the causes, and we continue to go round in circles and spend millions in the process.
Gambling is a way of life, good or bad.
It’s been around forever and will be around forever.
For those who haven’t heard of Broard Arrow near Kalgoorlie, it was an out of the way to play two up and not be caught by the law. It’s now a bit of a tourist attraction.
People will find a way and place to gamble even if all the pokies are removed.
Surely education and treatment are the keys!


The millions and the misery
Couldn’t have expressed it better, Jones. If the taxpayers see more than anecdotal results for their hard earned money, they will be more inclined to be positive about their money being spent on organisations like Congress.
Where there is political spin, the taxpayer becomes cynical.
I am still bewildered as to how the hell can they (Congress) can have a $20m underspend?


Cops nab alleged grog runners
It’s not about the amount of money or quantity, it’s about the amount of damage to people’s lives, both primary and secondary that this disgusting conduct results in.
I say throw the book at them and jail time. Forget about a penalty of picking up empties as that may encourage “customers”.

I think you’ll find that annual financial reports have to be submitted between July 1 and December 31.
Auditing however, is different and typically done for different reasons..
