A terrible week has ended, terrible in parochial terms.
1 Shooting and hunting has the go ahead in National Parks thanks to the so called state Liberal Party. Who cares what's done overseas? Leave the management of parks to a strong workforce of rangers.
2 State power generation is sold off. Ditto.
3 Certain jobs with the Newcastle Herald (Fairfax Press) will be outsourced, across the ditch to New Zealand workers. Everyman and his dog attended a protest rally (except Nathan T) and expressed disbelief over this drastic policy and questioned the sanity of Fairfax decision makers.
