How is the Brewer Estate Power Station still NOT operating?
Since the arrival of the massive engine, which came by road from Darwin, I have: Had three jobs, got married, had two children the oldest of whom is eight, bought two houses, sold one house and moved to Sydney.
All the meanwhile, the power station still isn’t operating?!

Gender-diverse Alice flocks to drag queen spectacular
As a tourist last weekend watching the parade go past, I was quite annoyed at the protestors who appeared to want to do nothing but piss off the police and annoy everyone.
They attempted to continue their protest at the conclusion of the parade, with their banners and offensive outfits – two in “pig” masks attempting to goad the police.
I am saddened that this publication gives them traction. Hijacking a social event for political gain is very poor form.
