Comment on Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday by Evelyne Roullet.

Laurence, accept my apology for your my remarks about your pseudonym. I suppose I was upset by your rich colorful language telling me that I am an idiot because of my beliefs: “Usual useful idiots chanting that it takes the whole of a village to raise a child.” Your quote, not mine! So I thought if I need to be insulted I want to know the person who does it; fair?
I quote Hillary Clinton to show that “village” does not mean buildings, but “community”.

I maintain that if anyone must insult, do it with your name.
Village has more than a definition and is not relevant to our contemporary way of life. So let us use the word Community.
The people who helped were neighbours, strangers in the street, as well as professionals, of course.
I still look after children who are not Aborigines, and do not believe in spanking, but in strong voice if needed. One mother told me: “Do not raise your voice when you talk to children. I wonder about the future behaviour of the child.

I have questions for Maccas supervisor and staff:
• She started at 10pm and the shift ended at 2am on Sunday. She must be tired.
• When she left she discovered her bike had been stolen. Does Maccas have no secure parking for staff?
• So she set out on foot to the home of a friend in the Old Eastside, where she is staying. Could anyone, as she was not alone, have given her a lift? Or called a taxi? I was under impression that it was the employer’s responsibility to insure the safety of their employees.

@ Karen. Hillary Clinton:”Twenty years ago, I wrote a book called ‘It Takes a Village.’ And a lot of people looked at the title and asked, ‘What the heck do you mean by that?’ This is what I mean. None of us can raise a family, build a business, heal a community or lift a country totally alone.”

COVID-19 infected is Harts Range police officer
Thank you Dave, your answer reinforces my opinion: They knew the rules of isolation, therefore should have started it when they arrived, at Yulara village where there is police station and medical clinic.

@ Dave: “He indicated their daughter stocked their pantry prior to their arrival in Harts Range.” Good, but I cannot help myself wondering why the daughter did not stay to welcome them back?


Do what I do: a lesson for the government, police
Hal Duell, I am with you on this: Coming from Europe this couple should have gone to community health services at Yulara to take advice or quarantine themselves.
Any locals will know than you cannot go from Yulara airport to Harts Range without refuelling and having a break along the way.


COVID-19 news: Quarantine requirement ignored
All information/warnings/updates are given by electronic media. The people who needs the most to hear it do not go on the internet. We have to put town criers on back of cars with megaphones: isolate/stay home/ wash yours hands etc….A town crier, also called a bellman, is an officer of a royal court or public authority who makes public pronouncements as required.


COVID-19 ‘ignorance’ as large crowd attacks police
Something has to be done and fast, to stop Aborigines walking in family groups on the footpaths and parks.
How can you tell your children they cannot go to the parks when they see other kids doing it?
This is not a racist comment as I still give water like usually to the old women coming regularly to my gate, but they are not a group: one only comes to the gate and keeps the required distance.
