Comment on Big crowd at local School Strike 4 Climate Action by Ian Sharp.

@ 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” (although creeping conveys meaning as well); Julia reluctant to bring in an emissions trading scheme, hounded as a carbon taxing Julia 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.

Crikey! You used to be able to visit the conservation reserve and picnic at the tables and seats right near the base security gate.
Long before the new Turnback sign we used to ride from Alice to the gates and return, a good 50km workout.
A few years ago a friend of mine was on a walk with other members of the Alice Field Nats when approached about what they were doing in the conservation reserve, not taken kindly.
Who draws the boundaries, how do they get extended? Get stuck into them Erwin, more power to your arm.


Council: Jacinta Price refuses to bury the hatchet
Sad all round. Hope everyone can just put it all behind them and move on, Council business should be the priority. Let’s not go down the American route, formal complaints and litigation, soon we’d all need personal therapists and a legal team.


Looks like Wazza’s back
@ Gareth: I’m with Erwin on this one. Clearly labelled “comment”.


Jacinta Price spits dummy
@ Charlie Carter: Took your advice to John Bell, re-read Marcias’ article. Easily found. Puts a lot in perspective. Cheers.
