PUNISHMENT NOT ENOUGH
In regards to the killing of deer at Mt Kembla. I am absolutely disgusted in the killing of these poor defenceless animals. The men involved should be thrown in jail for quite a number of years.
If this is how they treat animals I would hate to see how they treat their fellow human beings. Even fining these men would not be enough and they need to be punished.

AN IMPEDED VIEW
With a view to the rage being expressed by many people in the northern suburbs re the sprawling, view-blocking growth along the foreshore notably Sandon Point, Bulli, and Woonona, I contest the encroaching jungle could be controlled to create parkland which has both vegetation and areas for viewing the ocean.
We go to the sea to see the sea. Currently all we see up here is scrubby uncontrolled vegetation,

A LIFE-CHANGING DECISION
In regards to Cronulla's Xerri Bronson, the entire rugby league cohort must look at the results of Bronson's drug testing objectively not emotionally.
The time taken by ASADA to release the results is an aside.
It must not be used as a crutch to seek an exoneration.
A lapse in time is a separate issue to knowingly take illicit performance enhancing drugs.
The fact of the issue is that if Bronson's B' sample confirms the original 'A' sample findings he must not be treated any differently from those before him that made a life-changing decision, and got caught.

DISASTER IN WAITING
He might not always have been around when he really should, but by jingo, "Scott from marketing" can always be relied upon to come up with a slogan rather than a solution for the nation's problems.
It was he who came up with the extremely costly tourism flop "Where the bloody Hell are you?" His slogan, "on water issues" when minister for Border Security, was code for "I know; but I am not going to bloody well tell you lot!".
As Australian prime minister and with the nation confronting its worst ever bushfire disaster; his "I will not be holding a hose" is possibly his most insensitive and stupid of slogans. Now, with the COVID-19 crisis, 'Scott from marketing" has addressed our nation's problems with a trio of very concise slogans: 'Job Keeper', 'Job Seeker' and now, 'Job Maker'.
However, with the first two having more pricks than a porcupine for people seeking to access them. What are the odds against 'Job Maker' proving by comparison, 'Where the bloody Hell are you?" was Logie Award winning material?
Extremely short odds I would suggest. Particularly so if Michaelia Cash, minister for employment, skills, small and family business is allowed to become involved.

Sad to see that a certain company's local papers throughout the state are being let go due to costs. Newscorpse perhaps?
