@ Steve. Your grasp of the Constitution on the point …

Comment on Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor by Ian Sharp.

@ 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.

Code of conduct allegations ‘vexatious, frivolous’ – councillor
@ 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.

Big crowd at local School Strike 4 Climate Action
@ David: “We have politicians to act on these things.”
Crikey!
John Howard a very late convert just before 2007 election; The Ruddster creeping away from “the greatest moral challenge of our time”; Julia reluctant to bring in an emissions trading scheme, hounded as a “carbon taxing Juliar” by Abbott, Credlin, The Parrot and Hadley; Malcolm crucified twice for trying to do something that Tony wouldn’t – and now the farce of Barnaby wanting to rise again on the back of coal, and The Potato on his road to Damascus finally sensing the tide turning … and you blithely tell the kids “We have politicians to act on these things.”
They will roll over laughing at you. Rightly.

Liberals and Labor: Tweedledum and Tweedledee on Pine Gap
Pine Gap certainly has done a lot for our security over many years, but the rise of drone warfare raises new issues.
Watch the film Eye in the Sky with Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman if you are unsure about this. Good article Kieran, thanks.


96 trees chopped down to ‘duplicate’ highway
Pretty rotten section of the road to be riding a bike on, duplication will be a boon to Alice cyclists I think.
The trees will regrow, and will actually increase their intake of carbon as they do.


Visitor from afar to Alex’s backyard
Special indeed, thanks Alex.
