Earth Hour is on 26 March. Will fast food switch off?
A new era has dawned in Newcastle. Post industrial Newcastle. True grit activites around trades hall and industrial relations have ceased long ago. Old-guard labor politicans are marginalized. All that there is to do has been done.
Post industrial Newcastle, postmodern Newcastle verges on endless commodified lifestyle choice. Kick back and enjoy. Some enjoy new developments at Honeysuckle.

A prospective independent candidate will take on grand issues such as a level crossing and regulations around half a dozen prostitutes. And problem drinking.
