With the Court House looking like a camp oven…a Yellow Bunny bolted down…and suggestion for a Kangaroo…strewth…you would not want to be (ahem) court on the hop if you are a Feral… nicked by the constabulary…”Into The Oven for you, matey!”

They must be joking!
@$for Eugene. Mate, what we have to remember here is that Mr Dylan was a feral social agitator who got a Nobel Prize for such immortal lyrics as “Lay,Lady, Lay, Lay Across My Big Brass Bed”..if a bloke can score a Nobel when he can’t even get the word grammatically correct (it should be Lie, Lady, Lie, Lie across my big etc)…then I would like to nominate Melanka Bunny for a Nobel…for agitating us lot over a far more worthy social topic…a court house building…can see Melanka Bunny in future years…on the roof of the Council Chambers…laughing….at us silly mere mortals…rabbiting on …over a feral…sucked in!


They must be joking!
While all of us have been rabbiting on about the iniquitous Yellow Feral, we have overlooked coming up with a birth name for this little fellow.
I would like to toss my hat into the name ring with a suggestion – MELANKA.
It would commemorate a hostel of legendary fame, a veritable warren of boltholes where countless numbers of us young Ferals lived and loved and multiplied and are yet to be eradicated from the fabric of a great town!


They must be joking!
@Greg. Huh? “Rabbit: a poor performer at any time?”. Whoever came up with that one at Oxford Dictionary House musta had one too many Easter Eggs. Coz Bugs the Yellow Feral sure gets the chocolates in the Reproduction Derby! Better than Maybe Diva.

More than 50 Alice businesses strike for climate
And a great day out was had by all. Pity the poor souls who were too busy trying to earn a dollar to pay their power bills to join in the moral festival.


Council: push to declare climate emergency backfires
So. Let me get this straight. 14 Climate Change Emergency activists get up on the mike with questions in thousands of words and even in song. But when it came to debating what the emergency actually was or actually entailed, they had done a runner from the gallery? So the heated air of words sort of evaporated into thin air and left answers blowing in the wind, so to speak? What did it all achieve? Anything at all? But it sounds like a good time was had by all. A good night out in the Alice. And that’s the main thing, hey?


Youth crime: compassion alone is no solution
Erwin’s article is straight-shooting and a fair comment.
Basically he is saying that this lawyer, in failing to address the serious offences that landed teenagers in detention in the first place, is misrepresenting the balance between compassion and responsibility for ones own actions.
The word “compassion” is a political currency fast being devalued by its loudest advocates.
Our politicians latched onto it in the late 1960s – early 1970s at a time when the public social conscience was being made aware of Aboriginal and TI disadvantage.
A wonderful and positive thing in the beginning.
But the Toyota Dreaming days that accompanied it also brought an overbearing virtue signalling class of intolerant Humanistas, mainly from Down South.
So many young people became imbued with a sense of self-righteous entitlement that now far outstrips their sense of responsibility.
To even speak about this imbalance risks being labelled with the “R” word (racist) or the “C” word (coconut).
The balance must be restored in public debate. By advocate lawyers especially.


Cold morning, warm hearts at the Old Timers Fete
To Mary and Sue and staff and all the wonderful people who make the Old Timers a beautiful place.
You have a great big loving heart and a good soul.
The world is a better place for your caring.


Is it time for a First Nations university?
The idea of a First Nation University begs the question – why?
What is it about indigenous academic study that demands that it be taught in a specialised (read: insular) learning and teaching environment?
And is the concept of First Nation heritage up for debate, or is it a closed shop that does not allow the special privilege of First Nation lineage to be debated?
I would have no particular objection to it as a non-First Nation human who would not be eligible to enrol anyway. But what exactly would be its purpose? Just a thought.
