This is probably Fletcher in Fletcher Park, Newcastle.
(Just imagine a woman considered worthy of any place in local history.)

The legend has stepped down. Fidel Castro led a unique country for half a century. We hone in on the personality and style of our political leaders. Government and other institutions are a joint effort not just any one person. There are those who spend several years politicking about individuals yet still end up with a bizarre leader. All the while the public service grinds on regardlessly. Is federal government redundant?

Is federal government redundant? I would rather ask Is state government redundant? Isn't it time Australia had a common policy on schooling for example, rather than have a HSC in NSW that is different from that of WA?

Thanks Nat, long time no see, not that you are forgotten by any means. That outcome could be achieved in several ways that are not dependent on a federal government, but naturally they would probably ease the process overall.
