Mullum to weigh up Shearwater flowering into spring EME pros and cons In the same week that two meetings have been called to debate possible health implications and economic benefits for a free public-access wifi internet throughout Mullumbimby’s CBD, Telstra have announced that a new tower for the town has been installed and is operational. A Telstra spokesperson says that the area will now experience improved mobile-coverage with a new dedicated mobile phone base station. And when asked by The Echo what levels of radiation to expect, Telstra’s media spokesperson replied, ‘Electromagnetic Energy (EME) emissions are an issue of concern for some residents. When it comes to EME, we rely on the expert scientific advice of national and international health authorities including the Australian Radia-

tion Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for overall assessments of health and safety impacts. The maximum EME the base station will emit is 0.08 per cent (the maximum allowable limit is 100 per cent).’ Recently an electromagnetic radiation (EMR), or EME tower proposal, sparked concern just west of the Shire. The Nimbin Good Times has reported that communities in Lillian Rock and Barkers Vale have been stirred into action after a 50-metre tower was proposed nearby. The Times says, ‘residents from Homeleigh through Barkers Vale have been undertaking a full blood count through health professionals to form a baseline to refer to should continued on page 2

Labor retains seat after Greens prefs Nationals fail to claim one Byron Shire polling booth despite winning popular vote in Richmond Hans Lovejoy

Byron Shire has bucked the nationwide trend to vote conservatively in the the lower house, with Greens candidate Dawn Walker taking 12 of the 18 polling booths. And while Labor’s Justine Elliot claimed six Byron Shire booths, Nationals candidate Matthew Fraser failed to secure even one, despite gaining the majority of Richmond’s primary vote. The federal electorate of Richmond spans from Tweed Heads down to Lennox Head and west to Nimbin (excluding Lismore). With 27,822, or 37.69 per cent of

the primary votes, Mr Fraser beat Labor’s Mrs Elliot at 24,877 or 33.7 per cent. However, Greens preferences brought her comfortably past the post. In fact, the Greens improved their performance locally from the 2010 election by 1.36 per cent with 12,928, or 17.51 per cent of the vote. Ms Walker had a particularly strong showing in Mullumbimby (960 votes to Elliott’s 596) and in Federal (206–128). And newcomer Phil Allen from Palmer United Party attained 7.51 per cent while John Ordish of the Christian Democrats and independ-

ent Kevin Skinner earned 1.4 per cent and 2.2 per cent respectively. Preference counts for the senate, or upper house, have yet to be finalised. Without a strong Greens vote from Byron Shire and surrounding towns, Richmond may well have seen a conservative win as in the electorate of Page, located south of Richmond. Page includes Ballina, Casino, Kyogle, Yamba, Lismore and Grafton. Long- serving Labor MP Janelle Saffin has been ousted from that seat by Nationals’ Kevin Hogan, who gained 46.92 per cent of the primary vote to Saffin’s 38.82 per cent.

Pictured above is just a snapshot of Byron Shire polling booth results for primary votes in the federal lower house last Saturday. Tweed Heads and its surrounding areas instead polled a strong Nationals primary vote. Statistics sourced from vtr.aec.gov.

A charity event at the Byron YAC (Youth Activity Centre) on September 21 aims to raise funds for the Kirakira hospital in the Solomon Islands. Co-organiser Lily Sykes told The Echo, ‘Our goal is to raise $7,000 so that a shipping container can be filled with medical equipment and be sent over.’ ‘The medical equipment will be provided by Revive Foundation.’ Live entertainment will be from Kit Bray, Ziggy Alberts and Natalie Welch along with fire twirling, local chai tea and food stalls.

Planning law concerns raised: MP Don Page Local NSW MP Don Page (Nationals) says he has raised community concerns over new draft planning legislation with NSW planning minister Brad Hazzard. It comes after Gasfield-free co-ordinators Deborah Lilly

and Olga Tresz, along with Michael Bushby, last week presented MP Page with a letter outlining what they say are the dire outcomes for communities should this legislation go ahead. Furthermore, they gave Mr Page 31 colour

photographs of artworks from KIDZART, which express ‘strong desires to preserve their land, water and wildlife’, says Ms Lilly. But some details of the concerns Mr Page raised with Mr Hazzard over the draft

legislation remain unclear, after Mr Page did not reply to The Echo’s question as to whether these new draft laws, if enacted, would have prevented the community from rejecting the recent Dan Murphy’s Byron bid.

Sept 17 meeting Meanwhile the proposal to install free public-access wifi internet throughout Mullumbimby’s CBD has met resistance, with a public meeting scheduled for September 17. Additionally a website has been launched – www.mullumwifi.com – which explores possible health affects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and comparative safety standards set by other countries. Co-organiser of the Mul-

lum meeting and the recently launched website, Peter Nielsen, told The Echo that whether it’s a CBD hotspot, NBN wireless links or smart meters, ‘All of these technologies emit similar microwave radiation which indiscriminately affects the wellbeing of the entire community.’ ‘Our group is not opposed to these technologies as such, but the present situation is that people do not have sufficient information to make informed decisions about its acceptance in daily use. ‘There is now wide recognition that living organisms can be affected by far lower levels of electromagnetic

Sept 25 meeting Another information night is also planned by the proponents of free Mullum wifi, to be held at the Mullumbimby RSL on Wednesday September 25. Mullum Mac manager Obi McDonaldSaint will present his plans before opening the floor to

the panel for discussion. Chaired by Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson, the panel will explore the opportunities that would be created by the initiative.

Mayor to chair Mr McDonald-Saint says the meeting also aims to discuss the concerns members of the community may have with potential health risks, safety standards and impacts on children of wifi technology. Mayor Richardson told The Echo, ‘I hope the meeting can serve as a way to bring community together as opposed to solidifying opposing views.’

Mullum developer costs to drop The cost of developing land in Mullumbimby is set to drop by almost $12,000 in a new plan released by Byron Shire Council last week. Under the proposed new fee structure, section 64 development costs in Bangalow, Ocean Shores and Brunswick Heads would also fall but Byron Bay development costs will rise. The plan will see developer costs across the shire capped at $25,130. Under the current plan, Byron Bay developers contribute just $20,653,

while those in Bangalow, Brunswick Heads and Ocean Shores pay $30,593. Mullumbimby developers pay far and away the most: $37,739. Byron mayor Simon Richardson said Council had been approached by numerous residents about the costs associated with building a house in Mullumbimby as compared to Byron Bay. He said the reduction in development costs will see a significant reduction in housing construction costs.

Local News Local biz taps into youth market Lions gives to Byron’s homeless Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Billie Buckley

It is estimated that travellers in their teens, 20s and early 30s spend close to 200 billion dollars a year worldwide and a group of Byron Bay businesses are joining forces to tap into this lucrative market. Since its inception in 1992, the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC) has travelled annually to a different famous holiday destination. This year WYSTC will take place in Sydney. A new collective of Byron’s leading adventure and youthoriented, entertainment, and backpacker businesses will present a united front at the WYSTC later this month. Alice Livingstone from Cape Byron Kayaks is the co-ordinator of the business group to pitch Byron Bay to international delegates. ‘I approached a couple of operators and suggested we attend as a Byron group’, she said. ‘They agreed and we have

The Lions Club of Byron Bay was recently very pleased to have Simone Verdon (coordinator) and Brian Neale (treasurer) from the Byron Emergency Accommodation Project (BEAP) attend one of their meetings on August 8 as guest speakers. During the meeting, it was brought to the Club’s attention the funding difficulties being experienced by BEAP, who provide support, as well

Alice Livingstone hopes that the new business group will attract a diverse range of youth visitors to Byron Bay.

had more join and now we are over 20 operators including accommodation, surf schools, kayaks, skydive and transfers.’ Alice says that Byron has always been a popular backpacker destination, but the aim of the Byron delegation to Sydney is to expand on that and broaden and diversify the youth market that the town attracts. ‘There are companies here who deal with volunteer tourism, work exchange pro-

grams, language schools and other areas that aren’t necessarily backpackers. They tend to encourage a longer stay and a higher spend. We also hope to attract visitors who have more of an interest in merging themselves in the lifestyle and culture of Byron and in being respectful visitors.’ To contact Alice about joining the Byron Bay business group, email alice@ capebyronkayaks.com or call 0417 247 828.

Shade trees for a playground Pictured are keen gardeners and seed savers, Peter and Beryl Judd, who recently moved to Mullum’s Tallowwood Estate. After noticing a treehouse in a large shady tree and the well-appointed playground not being used much because of sun exposure, the Judds contacted the estate’s management to see what could be done to make the playground more user friendly. And last week three welladvanced, large shade trees were planted by the developers. At a celebration of the planting Peter and Beryl, inspired by last week’s Living Earth Festival, announced plans for community food garden beds on some reserves between homes on the estate.

as both short- and long-term accommodation to those who are homeless, or seeking refuge, in the Byron Shire area. ‘It was our great pleasure to present Simone with a cheque to purchase a new refrigerator for one of the emergency accommodation homes’, said Byron Lions president, Peter Buckley. Simone has since been in contact with the Club, saying, ‘we have our new fridge, it’s very exciting, and we’re absolutely thrilled!’

Moving towards the end of the year, the Lions Club is also organising a musical variety night to be held at the Byron Bay Bowling Club on Saturday September 21, kicking off at 7pm. There will be three local bands playing and raffles between bands, with all proceeds from the event going towards local community projects in the Byron Bay area. QBillie Buckley is treasurer of

Elderly get a new pimped ride with help from Rotary Story & photo Eve Jeffery

A new bus for Byron Aged Care has resulted from a gift fund at the nursing home, fundraising, and a helping hand from Rotary. After a request to Byron Rotary for funding for a new bus to replace their unroadworthy one, Byron Rotary president Gerry Rihs told The Echo that while the estimated cost of $60,000 was outside their means, another member, Chris Burke, found one for sale much cheaper in Sydney. Gerry says that with a trade-in, the bus was bought for less than half the cost of a new bus.

All aboard – residents of Byron Aged Care have been whizzing around town showing off a new ride ever since their bus, complete with wheelchair lift, arrived. From left, residents of Byron Aged Care; Basil, Dot, Gladys, Joan, Frank and Harry.

Local News Byron Art School reinvents education model Mandy Nolan

To be an artist you have to be inventive on a number of levels and not just in the studio. When local TAFE colleges discontinued their art courses after NSW coalition cuts leaving many long-term teachers and students without a creative outlet, their spirit was not silenced. Instead, teachers and artists created The Byron Art School, an initiative taking place in studios around the Shire. Dublin-born Michael Cusack has taken on the old Stewart Motors building in Mullumbimby, a long-time vacant space that has been cleverly re-purposed.

Re-purposed building Cusack believes empty spaces could be used as ‘art studios’ or ‘pop-up galleries’, creating a buzz in parts of the business district that might be experiencing a bit of dieback. ‘Places like Newcastle have opened up empty shopfronts, pop-up galleries,’ says Cusack. ‘They have artist-run spaces and it is a huge success.’ Cusack believes that a

West Papua is one of the most secret places on Earth and on Monday September 2 a small group of Byron locals converged with a diverse mix of Brisbanites to share with, and shed some light with our closest northern neighbours. We undertook a solidarity action at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade office, raising the West Papuan flag and presenting a letter to foreign minister Bob Carr, who has damned the West Papuan Freedom Flotilla,

similar model would reap rewards in Byron Shire. ‘We don’t have enough art galleries and museums that we can go in and look at work here. One of the properties of learning about painting is understanding the physical qualities of a painting.’

Big spaces needed ‘We need big spaces – you need people doing stuff that isn’t just commercial.’

For Cusack it would be about creating a space for ‘installation, performance, all creative conceptual stuff – a hub of ideas.’ The artist hopes that the Byron Art School will instigate the growth of art practice and extend the concept of what art practise actually is. The studio model of teaching is proving to be successful for the Byron Art School, which was formed as an initiative of The Industrialists, an alle-

giance of like-minded artists who meet regularly to support each other’s practice. Alongside Cusack, other founding members of the Byron School of Art are Christine Willcocks, James Guppy, Rick Shearman, Sarah Harvey, Meredeth Crowe and Emma Walker. For more information about the school and courses on offer, contact Meredith on 0431 034 892 or log on to byronschoolofart.com.

which is currently en route to the forbidden island. It is estimated up to half a million West Papuans have been murdered by the Indonesian military over the last 30 years – see www.freedomflotillawestpapua.org.

Human rights We met with academics and West Papuan refugees, Indigenous Australians, Melanesian and activist elders, human-rights advocates and those with firsthand experience of Indonesian jungle detention centres.

Together we voiced our concern with common heart and intentionally defied the ‘Lombok Treaty 2006’, which is an agreement between Indonesia and Australia that expressly forbids Australian support for independence in West Papua. Recently 2,000 people in the city of Sorong, WP, held a service at a Protestant church to pray for the safe arrival of the Freedom Flotilla. The church was surrounded by hundreds of police and armoured cars. As they tried to hold a

press conference outside the church, four people were arrested and are threatened with the charge of treason or sedition, which carries a 15-year jail sentence in Indonesia. Currently other Papuans are serving this sentence just for possessing the forbidden Morning Star flag.

This Friday 13th 5.30pm at the School.

Australia set to shrink on the world stage

Volume 28 #14

September 10, 2013

Doing it differently In the end, the pundits tell us, it didn’t matter that Labor had better policies; the leadership infighting was political death. The ALP had better remember that when Tanya Plibersek (we wish) campaigns for the next election. As ever, things were different in the bubble of Byron Shire. Against the national trend, here the Greens polled so well their preferences got Labor incumbent Justine Elliot over the line, despite the coalition’s Matthew Fraser winning the primary vote elsewhere in the electorate. Byron Shire voters have done Richmond a big favour; Ms Elliot may not be the best representative we’ve ever had, but the ill-informed and arrogant Mr Fraser would surely have proved the worst. To the south the national conservative swing took the seat of Page away from its best-ever member, Janelle Saffin, and gave it to a National Party hack. When swings are on there is no respect for achievement, nor indeed for the actual selfinterest of the voters. New PM Tony Abbott will not have an easy time with the senate. The Greens have fared well, despite a diminished primary vote, and to balance the seats lost by Labor there is a group of tiny parties on whom Abbott can practise his negotiating skills. Many voters on Saturday would have questioned the wisdom of allowing micro-parties to be set up so easily when their main purpose is to preference each other. The senate ballot sheet was the longest ever and produced a huge donkey vote for the party on the left hand column. The candidate who benefits is an ultra-right preference manipulator whose only policy, apart from hatred of Greens, is more freedom for shooters. David Lovejoy

o the bomb has dropped, and Tony Abbott and his army of orcs will rule us for at least the next three years. And what is worse he has threatened to be a prime minister for all Australia, even to look after those of us who did not vote for him. Be afraid, be very afraid. But before leaving the country, locking yourself in a darkened room with a large supply of hallucinogenic drugs or simply slitting your wrists, please consider: it could have been much, much worse. For starters, Abbott will not control the senate – at least not in his own right. Labor and the Greens have almost certainly lost the numbers to block legislation by themselves. But Abbott will still have to deal with a group of unlikely and probably cranky blow-ins from the minor parties, including ‘The Brick with Eyes’, ex-NRL legend Glenn Lazarus, who looks a monte to win a seat in Queensland for the Palmer United Party. And for Labor, the result is not nearly as bad as had been feared: most of the best and brightest have survived to regroup and fight another day. Chris Bowen and Jason Clare, in particular, have saved their western Sydney seats. The only front bencher definitely gone is David Bradbury in Lindsay although Mike Kelly in Eden-Monaro is a serious risk. And there is still a chance that the much loathed Sophie Mirabella could succumb. The news is not all bad. From the earliest figures it was obvious that the government was gone; indeed, the most excited commentators did not even wait that long to start dancing on its grave. But as the count progressed various anomalies emerged. The most obvious was the unexpectedly high voter for the Palmer Unit-

ed Party; the glorious founder could even win a seat, and it appeared that a lot of Labor defectors had not gone right across to the coalition, but had parked their votes with PUP, only to return their preferences to the ALP. And this meant the devastation was far less severe than predicted: what had been dubbed the killing grounds of New South Wales and Queensland turned out to be isolated scenes of carnage rather than a general bloodbath. Even Craig Thomson’s old seat of Dobell went down to the wire, and supporters of the elusive Jaymes

And apart from Palmer, Bob Katter retained Kennedy, Adam Bandt retained Melbourne and Andrew Wilkie kept Denison. By the time the count was suspended on election night it was clear that Labor’s loss would be less than twenty while Abbott’s majority would be limited to under thirty – a comfortable win, certainly, but nowhere near the wipe-out predicted by his excitable pollsters. Interestingly Rudd’s concession/resignation speech was considerably more cheerful (and, of course, verbose) than Abbott’s acceptance/coronation response. Obviously the overwhelming feeling was one of relief, but there was also a sense of vindication; he had been brought back to save the furniture, and he had rescued more of it than most people had expected.

conquering hero looks safe enough, for the moment; but he has not had the sort of win which will produce a cowed and subservient opposition or guarantee a party room fawningly acquiescent to his every eccentricity. And the Nationals, invigorated by few gains and the entry of Barnaby Joyce into the lower house, have already signalled that they are ready to rumble. Once the first glow of victory begins to fade, so might Abbott’s hope of a relaxed and comfortable future.

ry nausea to see what an Abbott government actually does, or at least tries to do; so how much will things change? Not much, at least for the ungrateful westies; Abbott has promised them that all the real nasties will be reserved for his second term in office. The Institute of Public Affairs and its blueprint for ending of civilised society will have to wait. The sun will still rise over Australia, as it always has. But it will shine down on a country which is shrinking. The most obvious symptom will be a retreat behind our own borders, the abrogation of our international engagements and obligations. Abbott signalled this with his last-minute decision to abandon Australia’s long-standing bipartisan foreign aid commitments in favour of building more local roads. Next will come the rejection of technology: our world-class National Broadband Network

is to be replaced with a secondrate stop gap which even its own minister is embarrassed to defend. And most importantly, climate change: we will buy out of any serious attempts to respond to the global challenge or to embrace the opportunities of the renewable energy economy in favour of maintaining the status quo, waiting for the rest of the world to force us to shift gears. And quite apart from the senate, there are going to be further constraints which will become obvious as soon as Joe Hockey hunkers down to prepare his first budget with the Treasury officials he has spent the lest twelve months accusing of incompetence and malpractice. And as Abbott’s crew of neophytes emerge blinking into the public gaze from which they have been so diligently shielded during the campaign, it might well be a shock both to them and to us. They might be disconcerted to find that their glorious leader is not, after all, the suppository of all wisdom, or even of unlimited power and influence; that he remains vulnerable to the power struggles among the factions within the coalition, and even more so on a personal level as the forces embodied by Gina Rinehart, Cardinal George Pell, Rupert Murdoch and the ghost of B A Santamaria battle for what is left of his political soul. As Paul Keating once remarked, when you change the government, you change the country. And as JBS Haldane commented, the future will not only be stranger than we can imagine; it will be stranger than we can imagine. Abbott has promised us no surprises. I can promise him, there will be.

Letters Bad sign Why do the major political parties claim to be able to control the economic system and ‘job creation’ while, at the same time, espousing a ‘free market’. Holding two mutually exclusive ideas contemporaneously is a sign of insanity or an attempt to deceive. Jim Nutter Main Arm

Cenotaph plans The Ex-Services Club in Mullumbimby is planning a redevelopment of the existing cenotaph to create an enlarged memorial precinct in the Civic Centre park. My opinion of the design plans is not flattering but my main concern is the process by which such an overwhelming change of character to such a prominent, community-shared area of town can occur without the majority being aware of the existence of such plans. I’m sure also that there are those who would infinitely prefer the existing cenotaph to remain but are somewhat cowed by the sacred subject of the proposal from expressing this view. I am informed that as the proposal constitutes a public facility on council-controlled land no DA is required. It would appear that a 12-month public participation period was required. This began in November 2012 (ends November 2013). I argue that displaying the plans in the Ex-Services foyer and on an individual’s rarely visited website does not constitute an acceptable public consultation period. Council should have taken more responsibility to ensure the wider community was informed of these plans from the beginning.

The plans can be viewed on www.mullumremembers@blogspot.com. If you don’t like what you see I suggest you request a meeting with the site manager who is theoretically available to the public on Saturdays at the club, and/or contact your councillors. To date, online feedback is very predominantly negative, but I believe the surveyors are set to begin work soon. June Grant Mullumbimby

Rethink 9/11 The twelfth anniversary of 9/11 is upon us. This single iconic event was a gamechanger that unleashed two disastrous invasions, the ‘War on Terror’, the end of internet privacy and of many civil liberties. A re-energised ‘Rethink 9/11’ movement has put up a massive billboard in New York’s Times Square and posted an excellent online video to try to bring more awareness to the truth of 9/11. Understanding what really happened that day makes much more sense of what has happened since. Please get informed. Michael Balson Upper Wilsons Creek

Planning travesty NSW minister for planning Brad Hazzard has a developer’s wet dream up his sleeve. In mid-September he will introduce into NSW parliament a travesty of the old Environmental Planning & Assessment Act with planning reforms that have taken the environment out of the name as well as the equation. Sweeping new changes will remove community right to have a say on up to 80 per cent of developments, which

means you might suddenly see, for instance, blocks of flats mushrooming up and you will have no right to comment. Our quality of life, environment and heritage is at stake and the planning system is being used to drive ‘development at any cost’, CSG included. Even Planning and Infrastructure director-general Sam Haddad has conceded that department staff may have unintentionally spread ‘inaccurate or misleading information’ about the changes, touted as the biggest overhaul of the state’s planning system in more than 30 years (SMH, 13/8/13). Furthermore ICAC warned that the new system carries serious corruption risks. The O’Farrell government was elected in 2011 on the promise to return planning powers to the community and this draft legislation does the opposite. Please go to www.betterplanningnetwork.org.au for info and email local MPs. State government will decide on these drastic changes in a few weeks, so it’s urgent! Deborah Lilly Mullumbimby

Adding fluoride to the water in comparable dosing rates is giving prescription medication without a script, which is normally illegal. Thirsty summer labourers could run the risk of overdose.

Articles Helpless passengers in a mechanical universe David Lovejoy

I

once spent a long time musing over the idea that European history would have taken a better course if St Augustine had not gained control of the Catholic church. His theology implicitly denied free will and in my opinion was the cause of the church achieving fifteen hundred years of political hegemony – at the cost of a moral confusion in its ranks that still continues.* But now I am wondering if Augustine may have been right after all, although for the wrong reasons. Do we actually have free will? Sam Harris is a neurologist by trade and a militant atheist by avocation. His new book, Free Will (Free Press, Simon & Schuster), argues that our sensation of having the choice to do this rather than that is an illusion. Starting about thirty years ago, many experiments with increasingly sophisticated brain imaging machinery have demonstrated that a second or two before the intention of a deliberate act is formed in the mind, the physical circuitry of the brain is already busy on that act. In other words, what happens in consciousness is a rationalisation of what has already occurred in the body.

Philosophical havoc This evidence from neuroscience has not had much of a run in popular culture – we are all still secure in our illusion – but it has played havoc in the field of philosophy. Traditionally free will is not an idea derived from logical principles, but from our own psychology. We experience that we have free will, in fact it seems insane to doubt it, although a few exceptional thinkers like Spinoza have done so. However, with the rise of scientific materialism it became possible to see everything causally connected with everything else, and to believe that events were therefore determined. Determinism gradually embraced thought as well as action, so the existence of free will became somewhat problematic. In opposition to determinism runs the school of thought that there is something extra or magical in the physical equation – the soul perhaps – which gives us our freedom of choice. It is easy to see that this explanation is closer to theology than science, and intellectually negligible. The fact that con-

sciousness is physically based is incontrovertible, and has long been accepted as such. Nevertheless, until Sam Harris’s colleagues began messing about with their brain scanners it was possible to put the problem of determinism versus free will in the too-hard basket and leave it at that. This is no longer possible, so there’s a third school, the compatibilists, who attempt to reconcile our overpowering sense of free will with the equally overpowering evidence against it. Without repeating all the arguments in the book, let’s assume Harris refutes compatibilism and proves his case that free will is a subjective experience which has no objective existence. What are the implications?

Criminality Well, for one thing although for our safety we would still lock violent criminals away, the punitive aspect of imprisonment would make no sense. The French saying, ‘To know everything is to forgive everything’, would seem to apply. ‘What does it mean to say that rapists and murderers commit their crimes of their own free will?’ writes Harris. ‘If this statement means anything, it must mean that they could have behaved differently – not on the basis of random influences over which they have no control, but because they, as conscious agents, were free to think and act in other ways. To say that they were free not to rape and murder is to say that they could have resisted the impulse to do so… with the universe, including their brains, in precisely the same state as it was in at the moment they committed their crimes. Assuming that violent criminals have such freedom, we reflexively blame them for their actions. But… the moment we catch sight of the stream of causes that precede their conscious decisions, reaching back into childhood and beyond, their culpability begins to disappear.’ It is belief in free will that gives us our commitment to

North Coast news daily: www.echonetdaily.net.au

retributive justice. It also gives us the religious notion of ‘sin’, with retribution stretched out into eternity. But if scientific knowledge threatens the existence of free will, how will we be able to judge between right and wrong, good and evil? Moral responsibility must exist for human society to be possible. Harris argues that there is abundant consistency in the processes of our brains. Judgments of responsibility depend on this consistency, and where it fails we feel we are not in our right mind, and not responsible for our actions. In some cases we already recognise the effect of determinism: if a criminal is found to have a brain tumour, we normally see him as a victim of his own biology. The tumour is a gross and visible case of a causality that is usually too subtle to tease out. However, when we take that causality into account, hating criminals (as opposed to, quite rationally, fearing them) seems, well, illogical.

Justice? Harris devotes a lot of space to the question of criminality in relation to free will, and with good reason. All the world’s judicial systems assume society would break down if free will were in doubt, and a scientist proposing to base justice on determinism has hard questions to answer. Not least is the practical effect on our consciences: when we feel free we are better people, and studies have shown that disbelief in free will increases aggression and reduces helpfulness. I have briefly presented the book’s scientific argument, but the lag between brain activity and the thought based on that brain activity might not necessarily mean that we are helpless passengers in our body’s predetermined path through a mechanical universe. Harris’s thesis is that the material state of the universe rather than the free will of its inhabitants determines what happens next at any moment. But given our ignorance of

how micro (quantum) and macro (relativistic) physics match up, how can we be sure that the macro-level brain readings he cites prove his case? According to our best guess, time is a component of reality, not the medium in which reality takes place, so is the neurological lag really so significant? At the micro-level does time’s arrow still hold? So if the potential loss of free will makes you uncomfortable (and it should) there are still abundant thickets of scientific uncertainty in which to hide. And yet… We have all surely had the dizzy feeling of regression, when the very nature of the will seems circular, as in Harris quoting Planck quoting Einstein quoting Schopenhauer: ‘Man can do what he wills but he cannot will what he wills.’ *The result of my musings was a semi-fictional account of the fourth century itinerant preacher Pelagius, the last of the true Christians. He had been written out of history by the victorious Augustinians and deserved to have his say. If this interests you, you can download the novel Heresy: the Life of Pelagius from most of the e-book retailers.

Booze abuse and party rights Q I

read with some surprise the comment by Cr Sol Ibrahim who claims Last Drinks at 12 doesn’t represent the people affected and that he wants to drink after midnight so there had better be more police presence and compliance by licensees. This really selfish attitude is so prevalent in our society today. As though the police are some sort of robots who should be called out to deal with drunks and fights whenever. The Byron police must have one of the most unpleasant jobs on the east coast. Constantly at risk of violence, expected – like the hospital staff – to clean up the mess and shut up. Byron is not a party town. It’s a drunken, violent town late at night and the statistics are there for everyone to see. Personally, I’m grateful for the Byron police and their willingness to be there. They have families, they have a right to respect and gratitude for doing an awful job. As for those who believe that they should be able to drink whenever, try going home. You might find it more enjoyable. Or else ask the po-

lice if you can go out on one of the violent nights. Even better, spend a few hours in the emergency department dealing with the drunks. Sue Arnold Ocean Shores Q Thanks, Cr Ibrahim, for succinctly summarising my sentiments on Last Drinks At 12: The recent meeting was a scare campaign tailored to the ephebephobic (or Goldcoasterphobic?) gaggle who crowed over slide after slide of bash victims’ skull X-rays presented by the plastic surgeon from Brisbane hospital. The room then received the biblical tirade of the Newcastle campaign hero who espoused the due exorcism of the ‘Grog Monster’ from our hapless hearts and minds. Stunned or vindicated, we in the crowd forgot to notice immediately that the Newcastle example – the empirical basis for this campaign – actually resulted in venues changing their closing time from 5am to 3am. Byron already closes at 3am and there is a 1.30am lockout. I realise it would make the cops’ and nurses’ jobs easier if everyone had to go home at midnight, but so would putting soma in the water and hooking up to the Matrix every morning for another cruisy episode of real life. Dealing with miserable idiots who want to fight each other is a part of the job that you signed up for in return for an hourly wage. At least the government is paying that wage and thus still paying for the social damage they’ve doled out by selling our culture to the highest bidder. Jaz Kaelin Byron Bay QI agree with the Last Drinks at 12 group that there’s more the Byron community can do

and what can be done probably won’t be. Because the people in charge of the Byron Bay Liquor Accord have vested interests for liquor to be sold at their venues beyond 12am seven nights a week. Why do these people (BBLA) only have a voluntary measure in place? It’s because they are not fair dinkum; actions speak louder than words. I also support Elizabeth McCall and Denise Clifford health workers’ concerns about nurses copping the brunt of liquor-related violence at their workplace. The nurses’ job is hard enough and the majority of nurses deserve medals, not abuse from drunks, and that goes for ambos, too. From a Coopers drinker. Paul Brecht Mullumbimby QThe La La Land decision by the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing (OLGR) highlights more problems than answers. Multiple breaches of the voluntary Byron Bay Liquor Accord measures, committed only weeks after the agreement was signed, produced little more than a slap-on-the-wrist penalty, and even that took months to produce. These examples of ongoing industry non-compliance expose the futility of ‘voluntary’ liquor licence conditions preferred by the NSW government and its agent OLGR. Secondly, any enforceable conditions must be cost effective in preventing alcohol-related harms like the sensible Last Drinks at 12 package of conditions proposed to the local community. How can OLGR’s response be reasonably construed as an effective deterrent? A warning that there’s a risk of punishment if yet more

breaches occur doesn’t send a strong and clear message to the alcohol industry. It does the opposite and exposes OLGR as an ineffective organisation more concerned with protecting licences than ensuring effective, evidencebased enforceable licensing conditions in Byron Bay. OLGR needs to make the safety of the community a primary concern. The unequivocal evidence of the harms caused by alcohol-related violence shows long-lasting and serious damage. A ‘love-tap’ from OLGR is an inadequate response to a serious issue. Mick O’Regan Last Drinks at 12 Q The efforts to get the community talking about the issue of alcohol-fuelled violence in our town are working. This is great; everyone needs to be involved, to think about and discuss the issue. The freedom to drink late at night in public is seen in different ways by different people. At one end, there are those who see it as a right, not to be taken away, and at the other, it’s an activity that has too many harmful effects, one that, in some, leads to unacceptable behaviour that ruins it for everyone. Certainly the facts are that it is getting worse. Many people are not aware that our nurses, hospital doctors, police, ambos and others, are unable to speak out about the problem. They have NSW government work contracts which prohibit this. So the rights of some who live in our very permissive town, who feel they should have the ‘right to party’, need to be balanced with the rights of those who have to clean up the mess, deal with the injuries, the innocent victims, the sexual assaults. Many can’t go into their town after a certain time at night, because they fear what might happen, and see their town changing to a ‘party town’ where the greed of five late-night venues brings violence, binge drinking, and antisocial behaviour Residents want their town’s reputation and pride restored for every one of the 24 hours. When the violence stops, jobs and opportunities will come from the visitors and investors who come, having avoided town due its current reputation. Graham Truswell Coorabell

he Big Prawn, now fronting the Bunnings car park in Ballina, is overwhelming: weighing over 33 tonnes, costing $400,000 in repairs. This icon is one of Australia’s few ‘Big Things’ (www.australianpictorials. com/big_things_australia. html) that’s been successfully upgraded. It’s as huge for what it represents in Australian culture: cooked crustaceans. But what of the green and brown living creatures themselves? The two most common Australian prawns caught in NSW and Queensland are eastern king and school prawn. They are known as penaeids. They differ from those of the northern hemisphere, which are carideans. The difference is down to female reproductive habits. Both penaeid and caridean adult females finish moulting by copulating with the smaller males. The female shells are still quite soft. The male mustn’t be moulting as he needs a hard shell and petasma, that appendage underneath and near the top of the abdomen. This reproductive organ transfers a sperm packet to the female, who holds it in place with a smaller appendage called the thelycum. This process ensures the eggs are fertilised internally. So far so good. But now the caridean swims in the Gulf of Mexico, the North Atlantic or the Mediterranean, nursing the fertilised eggs attached to her tail until they hatch. Our own Australian penaeid simply swims out to

deep sea, shedding the fertilised eggs immediately. All the adults continue living only a few years at most.

Little worlds Over three weeks, the penaeid eggs hatch and larvae grow, completely dependent on the temperature, salinity and currents of the open sea. It’s imagined they drift south, though they are feisty enough to steer themselves in their little worlds towards food and away from predators. The larvae morph through three body shapes. Finally, they look like little prawns and travel into estuaries well south of their birth place. Within a year, almost grown, they leave for a last great sea adventure. In 1990, tagged king prawns were found in Ballina, having travelled from as far away as Gippsland Lakes, Sydney or South West Rocks. As adults travelling north in the open sea, they court others who grew up in different

estuaries. By contrast, tagged school prawns only travelled about 120 kilometres and were more likely to mate within populations of a single river. Starting as solitary eggs the size of a pinhead, finishing from 13 to 30cm each, collecting in great schools after journeys up to hundreds of kilometres – nothing kitsch about the lives of either of these penaeids.

Prawn future Nothing sentimental about the market realities rather. NSW stocks appear to depend on a steady supply of young from Queensland. More are caught in Queensland than NSW. Trawls for Australian prawns include excluders to help turtles escape capture. By-catch, involving over a dozen other species, as well as undersize prawns, is an ongoing concern. Numbers of boats are more limited than years ago but the viability of the fishery is debated. Meanwhile, much of the seabed is

raked over so often, creating underwater change without respite. Thanks to climate change, warmer waters hurry spawning by up to a month for many species. Who knows what else will happen next? The price of Australian prawns is often undercut by overseas imports. These are as much a worry as import clothing from sweatshops. Journalist Taras Grescoe and biologist Daniel Pauly all warn that ‘cheap’ prawns come from newfangled ponds, managed with pesticides and antibiotics, carved out of old-growth mangrove forests and laboured by exploited casual staff. There’s an old Aussie saying ‘don’t come the raw prawn with me!’ or ‘don’t expect me to swallow such a slippery deceit’. In these globalised days, we are all forced to find deeper meanings with our icons, kitsch and slang. Otherwise, we and our international neighbours risk being left ‘a prawn short of a barbie’.

See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au WHO’S FOR A HUG? How affectionate are you? I have always considered myself to be an affectionate person, but lately I’ve been noticing that perhaps I’m not as emotionally demonstrative as I have previously thought. I hug my children fairly regularly. Maybe not every day. But at least once or even twice a week. In my mind I hug them every day, but in reality I don’t get to it much more than that. They get harder to hug when they are teenagers; you have to hunker down and get them in some sort of military grip. Kind of like a tackle without the release. Of course I hug my fouryear-old. A lot. She sleeps with us most nights so she’s using up most of my affection for the world quota. When I walk past my husband I’ll touch him. Not in a gropey way. More of a gentle running of the fingers across his back followed by a small push to get him out of the way so I can proceed with my course of action. I kiss them all goodnight. I always do that. It’s become such a ritual in our house that the brushing of lips against cheek is as practised as a handshake. ‘Night, Love you,’ uttered like a small oft-repeated prayer, but with the same sentiment as the girl at

pushed the idea of a song telling a unique story while being part of a visual story played out over an album. A journey from one side of the day to the other, as much as from one side of life to the end. Be part of the story at the Hotel Great Northern on Friday.

the Woolies checkout delivers: ‘How are you today’. Of course I love them. (My kids, not the girls at Woolies.) But do I show it enough? I’m starting to worry that I’m not quite the warm cuddly mumma bear that I like to see myself as. I was listening to a motivational speaker some time ago and she suggested that many of us are not ‘present’ when we are being affectionate with our kids. That we’re caught up thinking about the next thing we have to do and the thing after that and delivering affection is just another job we have to tick off the list before we get on with the shit we have to do. I am certainly guilty of that. The other day my husband was loitering in the kitchen making ready to leave for work, waiting for an opportunity to kiss me goodbye and I’m like ‘In a minute; I just have to wash out this bin’. Really? I have to wash out a bin before I show love to the people I hold dearest? Even to a hardened old cynic like me that seems a bit harsh. Although the bin did require my immediate attention. I made a note to self. ‘Always kiss husband before washing bin.’ The speaker made a suggestion when referring to hugging one’s children. ‘Be the last one to pull away,’ she said. I thought about my child hugs. Perhaps I was the one who broke first. I’d never thought about it. So I tried hanging in there. The first time I hugged my son I kept hanging on. It went forever. I thought he was enjoying the affection but as it turned out I was suffocating him with my ample bosom. He wasn’t overly impressed with my new ‘giving’. In fact his feedback wasn’t what I was expecting. ‘That’s really creepy, Mum.’ Maybe we’re not overly affectionate people. We hug. We

kiss. But it’s a brush past, it’s never been one of those trafficstopping hugathons that you sometimes witness around here. I’ve tried holding hands with my kids in public. They’re not that into it. They’re like ‘Mum, stop touching me’. I’ve seen people holding hands with their children and I’ve never quite been able to work out whether it’s incredibly touching, or a bit disturbing. There’s a fine line between a beautiful heart connection and suffocating overdependence. I’ve never been a big fan of over-the-top romantic affection in public. I’ll hold hands with my husband from time to time when we’re walking, or even give him the odd peck. But lining up one of those tonsil-ripping tongue jobs just seems a bit too porn for the street. I’ve seen people all over each other and I’m definitely on the ‘get a room’ side of the fence. It’s uncomfortable being in the presence of people who clearly want to rip each other’s clothes off and bonk their brains out. I’ve been sitting in a public park trying to eat my sausage sandwich while a couple rolled around on the grass grinding and writhing. It’s disgusting. And I’m very, very jealous.

FUNKY AND FRESH BRISBANE-BASED FOUR-PIECE BAND SLIP-ON STEREO HAS BEEN CONSIDERED THE ‘BAND TO SEE’ SINCE BREAKING ONTO THE SCENE IN EARLY 2012. Self-described as ‘summer sounds’, their style is a unique blend of pop, funk, RnB, reggae and anything else they feel inspired to throw in the mix. These boys don’t look like easing up any time soon with the recent release of the first single Mercury off their five-track EP produced and recorded by producer Anthony Lycenko. They are currently up for the Most Promising New Talent at the Deadlys and will be appearing at Boomerang Festival this October. You recorded with a local producer Anthony Lycenko – can you tell me why you chose to use him? Anthony has a great reputation of working with fantastic talents and gets the best out of them to produce great music. One of our band members, Clint, worked with him so there was already a great relationship with him. What was the plan for the recording process? What did you want to achieve? The plan was to pick songs that would connect with and relate with our audience. We wanted to attempt to replicate the same energy and feeling that we work towards when we perform live. How do you feel about the results? We had a

great time during the process and we are very happy with the sound that was achieved. Do you need to be flexible in a recording situation? Yes, it's important to be flexible. Being flexible for us allows creativity to flow. And for us to get the best out of each other. How do you like to change your studio work from what you present live? Being in a studio situation for us means that we can experiment with other sounds and elements. What do you think it is about your sound that sets you apart? We are trying to bring a

sound that is authentic pop that people can be proud of listening to. What should we expect for your performance at Boomerang? We love festivals. It gives us the opportunity to connect on a personal level with people that may not otherwise get to hear our style of music. We love seeing people react to seeing us for the first time. 4–6 October, at the Bluesfest site. For tickets and program information go to www. boomerangfestival.com.au.

Mullum Music Festival Gets Sketchy INSPIRED BY MR SQUIGGLE AND PICTIONARY, THIS GAME-SHOW-WITH-A-TWIST IS MADE UP OF A SERIES OF PLAYOFFS BETWEEN THE ARTISTS AND THE RAPPERS.

The artists speed-sketch pictures relevant to a theme, topic or clue and project them onto a large screen for the rappers and audience to see. Wild, spontaneous and improvised, this is sure to be one of the unique performances on the Mullum Music Festival Bill. Can you explain in more detail the concept for Sketch the Rhyme? Basically it is a collaboration between visual artists, musicians and MCs. The artists project live drawings up on to a screen, that give visual stimuli for the MCs to feed off. We narrate stories, solve riddles and crack jokes, the whole time involving the audience and performing over live music. The main underlying essence of the whole show is improvisation, which keeps everything fresh, both for the audience and for the performers. How did you come up with the idea? Our creative director Rapaport came up with the idea while free-styling with a friend. The friend was doodling on a piece of paper, and Rapaport began to draw inspiration from the pictures. This then led him on to find a team of artists, performers and musicians who developed the show into the all out audio visual spectacular that it is today. How does the audience get involved? There are many different games/aspects of the show where we call on the audience for their participation. Whether it is hopping on stage to help the artists create a visual masterpiece, or responding wildly to our attempts at guessing the topic or dead celebrity that is being drawn. The audience is privy to knowledge that the MCs are not; this keeps them as a constant necessity throughout the show. Does it always work? There is all ways room for error in Sketch. This can only allow for more humorous engagements. There is nothing funnier than an awkward moment, and nothing more rewarding for the audience than seeing someone break free from

their restraints and carry on into an all out lyrical onslaught. Can you tell me about a performance that came together even better than you hoped? We cater for all types of people, ages five to 95. When we can perform a set to an audience that stretches from one to the other and keep everyone happy, we know we are doing a good job. Can you tell me a little about the people in Sketch the Rhyme and what we should expect for Mullum Music Festival? We have a great lineup of amazingly talented artists, rappers and musicians. Our MCs are some of the best freestyle rappers in the country, and are also well established recording artists as well. Rapaport from Loose Change, P.Smurf from Daily Meds and Jeswon from Thundamentals rounding out our all star MC lineup. We also have a crew of visual artists who excel in a range of different media from sketch, print, canvas graffiti and street art. This is all then backed by a crack team of session musicians that have been honing there skills on the Sydney and Australian music circuit for years. Mullum Music Festival, 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;24 November. For ticket and program information go to mullummusicfestival.com.

s r a t S WITH LILITH Friggatriskaidekaphobia (or paraskevidekatriaphobia, depending whether your source is Norse or Greek) is fear of Friday the 13th. But research shows accident rates plummet on this date, because everyone takes extra care…

E ARIES: Consultation, consideration and cooperation are your keys to navigating this week, in which irritable reactions could be expensive emotionally, socially and financially. If you can’t discuss issues in constructive, non-blaming ways, then refrain. Confrontation’s a no-no as it could provoke all-out war, especially during Friday’s stubborn Capricorn Moon. F TAURUS: When Venus leaves the sign of team players for Scorpio, your opposite number on the astro-wheel, what does that mean? That the emotional focus is in your house of relationships: deepening, refining, maturing. Assessing what you have, and what you need. And what you have to give. G GEMINI: This week’s a tricky mix of troublesome and wonderful, the highlights being delightful socialising, tasty game plays and congenial career schmoozing. A gritty inconjunct complicates communications, but your ruler Mercury in the diplomatic, objective sign of intelligent eloquence is working for you – especially on Friday the 13th. H CANCER: Feeling critical or disappointed with someone? They may be feeling the same way, so let emotions have their say. Be honest with yourself about how you could be contributing to misunderstandings. Then if these seem insurmountable, love is the best medicine. Not working? Increase the dosage.

I LEO: When warrior Mars in Leo flirts with steamy Scorpio Venus, stubborn meets stubborn – especially on Friday the 13th. Who’ll give in? With this week’s cosmic crockpot escalating emotional intensity, softly-softly behaviour and conversation aiming towards diplomatic accord will get best results. Mercury assists in power-searching peacemaking words. J  VIRGO: Astrologer Alan Oken believes Virgo’s karmic task is to improve on what’s offered. Rather than focusing on whatever’s wrong or lacking, to work with what’s there or find a way to supply the missing ingredients. Make sense? Excellent, because this week offers lots of room for improvement. K LIBRA: This week sees you balancing personal expression with group commitments, stability with adventure, traditional knowledge with new technology. Plus pressure-testing the validity and shelf life of longtime associations, some of which will strengthen, others fade. Don’t waste time on regrets or second guessing. Life’s too precious. L SCORPIO: Venus joining Saturn in Scorpio morphs you into a human magnet, drawing things irresistibly into your orbit. Moths to the flame, baby. One positive use for this Venusian infusion of personal initiative would be finding ways to satisfy cravings that leave you feeling good rather than guilty.

Filmmaking and digital media are the language of young people. They’ve grown up with it, and so it stands to reason that they will probably make the most interesting films. Crabbesfest is a local mini-version of Junior Tropfest, and features short films of five minutes or less from local small schools. Starting at 6pm with entertainment, sausage sizzle and free finger food with admission. Competing films will then be shown on the big screen, and prizes awarded by independent judges. A ‘People’s Choice’ will also be voted on the night. Crabbes Creek Hall, Friday. $5 individual, $10 family.

M S AGITTARIUS: Looks like one of those fractious periods when people ask what you’re thinking then sulk when you tell them, so spend it in the company of like-minded others who don’t require you to censor yourself. As Mercury’s midweek shift stimulates social networking, doors open for collaborative ventures. N CAPRICORN: This practical week likes your methodical style of engaging, your sensible questions before saying yes – which you’re ready to say to something that moves you to get personally involved. You’ll navigate this week’s changes, variations and surprises gracefully by really nurturing numero uno in whatever downtime’s available. O AQUARIUS: Organising Virgo vibes motivate you to get a heap of stuff done: paperwork, calls, followups, things you never usually get round to. Which besides being satisfying is actually great therapy to keep you away from this week’s emotional trouble spots with their potentially upsetting interactions. P P ISCES: Pisces is the sign of hidden resources, so if criticism stings, find a way to use it. And if this week’s people lose that loving feeling, revive it. As Virgoan influences narrow the gap between wishful thinking and practical realities, being considerate attracts beneficial encouragement and influential support.

YUTI MCLEAN Yuti McLean was born in Patchewollock, a tiny town in the northwest desert mallee district of Victoria. She moved to Byron Bay in 1995. Patchewollock in Aboriginal is Putjewallah (Putje meaning plenty, and wallah meaning porcupine grass). In the late 1980s Yuti worked as a political caricaturist for a rural newspaper until she tired of politics and embarked on an associate diploma of Fine Art in Sydney which she completed in 1993. Yuti

is currently illustrating a children’s book on yoga and is writing and illustrating an Australian children's book titled Growin’ up in Patchewollock! The series of paintings at this upcoming exhibition are an expression of the feminine aspect of her spirituality, and her deep connection with nature. There is a heart opening aspect to much of Yuti’s work. Pure Delight opening at the new Lone Goat Gallery, Byron Bay. 6pm Thursday. FB: Yuti McLean Fine Art

YUTI MCLEAN PURE DELIGHT Yuti McLean’s solo art exhibition in Byron’s Lone Goat Gallery begins 6pm this Thursday. Magic ingredients of this fascinating collection of Yuti’s paintings include gentleness, grace and mystique. The title piece Pure Delight was inspired by Gustav Klimt’s way of capturing the joy of a suspended moment. The Goddess of Honour was motivated from a book (found in the Mullumbimby library) of a pure angel among the wicked Scottish Border faeries. The Krishna Gondwanaland painting illuminates the meeting of the feminine aspect of Krishna with Miwi (aboriginal symbol of essence of soul). Goddess of Virtue depicts Yuti’s tracing of her ancestors; from Geraldis of Tuscany to MacLeans of Scotland. Discover this uniquely uplifting work at: Yuti McLean Fine Art (facebook). Opening Thursday 6pm at Lone Goat Gallery.

Buyuhyn-wana: The transformative persona brings together historical and spiritual objects from the collection of Robert Bleakley, and places them in context against contemporary screen-based works alluding to ideas of transformation. The character of this exhibition comes together with the scholarly but poetic visions of Bleakley and the highly esteemed Aboriginal curator, Djon Mundine. Cye Wood performs Thursday 12 September from 6pm, weaving together 5 string octave viola, violin, 6-string ukulele and piano, creating a sonic architecture of hypnotic beauty. This instrumental, emotively charged performance provides a unique and richly evocative experience. Friday 4 October, from 6pm, Djon Mundine and Robert Bleakley speak about Buyuhyn-Wana: the transformative persona and the ideas explored through the exhibition. www.lismoregallery.org, P: 02 6622 2209

The Byron Shire Echo September 10, 2013 23


Cinema Review The Best Offer Virgil Oldman is a sort of Henry Higgins in the world of antiques auctions. Wealthy and snobbish, he wears gloves when dining alone in the most exclusive restaurants and, though having collected a gallery of priceless female portraiture, he has never bothered to acquaint himself with the charms of the fairer sex. It is the perfect role for a big star with a penchant for staginess, and Geoffrey Rush fits the bill to a nicety. His silent partner in up-market shonkiness is Billy Whistler (Donald Sutherland), a failed artist with a leonine white

mane who doesn’t do much other than secretly bid on behalf of Oldman when a rare and valuable work is presented. The veneer of the great man’s prestige and practice is cracked when an agoraphobic young beauty offers her estate for sale. This is a baroque and crafty mystery, overwritten, to be sure, and a tad too fanciful for my liking, but inescapably engrossing at the same time. Director Giuseppe Tornatore gave us the wonderful Cinema Paradiso (1988), but here he has been unable to engender any similar warmth. Cold

precision, in cinematography and convoluted plotting, is partly responsible, but there is also the hindrance of some terribly clunky, declamatory dialogue – Tornatore is credited as writer, so we can only assume that his English was not quite up to the subtlety his story sought – while as Claire, the skinnyas-a-rake femme fatale, Sylvia Hoeks delivers a performance that lurches from the wooden to the overwrought. You suspect that there is a devious scam about to be perpetrated, but it is hidden beneath layers of commonplace

Euro metaphors – primarily surrounding the reconstruction of a nineteenth century automaton and the hardly new idea of woman as object. The sharp hook that drags you back into the scenario just when you think that you’re being berated with strained sophistry is the lady dwarf, whose sense of eerie portent brings to mind Don’t Look Now (1973). It’s cleverly done, but I didn’t care either way what happened. ~ John Campbell

those types. Her naturalness is beguiling and, without trying, she is able to invest in the character a truthfulness that is all too rare in juvenile portrayals. It helps, too, that she is surrounded by such a

talented cast, each of whom enlivens their role with immediately recognisable traits – we know these people and we are affected by their behaviour. Set in presentday New York but based on the late nineteenth century novel by Henry James, the story is entirely focused on the impact made on Maisie by the separation of her parents, Susanna (Julianne Moore), a ragged-edged, ageing rock singer, and her de facto husband, Beale (Steve Coogan), a sleazy English art dealer whose career has hit a flat spot. Both love Maisie, but not quite so much that they can put her before their own self-centred preoccupations. Beale is hastily married

to Maisie’s adored nanny, Margo (Joanna Vanderham), and Susanna, as a means of gaining better access to her daughter, gets hitched to the younger Lincoln (Alexander Skarsgård), a bartender with no prospects but of a caring nature that, to Susanna’s irritation, wins the little girl’s heart. A classic tug of war over custody ensues as Maisie is shunted uncomprehendingly between apartments – at one point she is left uncollected at the nightspot where Lincoln works and is taken home by a waitress. With confrontation and spiteful rows likely to erupt at any time, Maisie’s welfare is of secondary consideration. The

potential for bleakness might discourage a prospective viewer, but directors Scott McGehee and David Sieghel manage a perfect mix of sweet and sour, primarily through the unmannered

(Dave Franco), each of them a magician with a different field of expertise. They gain renown but step outside the law when they apparently teleport a volunteer from Las Vegas to Paris, where he robs a bank of millions. Enter the old stagers – Tressler (Michael Caine), plutocrat mentor, and Bradley (Morgan Freeman), an ancient mythbuster with teeth whiter than Warnie’s. There is obviously a highly sophisticated and very complex scam being planned, but it is too much to handle for detective Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo), whose approach is that of the bull in a china shop, even with the unwanted assistance of Alma (Mélanie Laurent), a beautiful

blond French Interpol cop. If you are familiar with this type of caper, you’ll appreciate that it is wise to keep in mind the throwaway piece of incidental narrative that is mentioned in an early scene, for it is invariably back to here that the circus is headed. The journey is the fun, and there is much of it to be had in this, even if there is no piece of chicanery to match the opening gambit, the winner being CGI rather than good ol’ fashioned magic. The Four Horsemen play a lesser part in the third act, which is a pity, because Harrelson and Eisenberg are excellent value. (I wonder if Eisenberg is such a smartarse in real life?) Good, but not exceptional. ~ John Campbell

What Maisie Knew You get a lot of American films in which the kids are either nauseating smarties or brattish beauties (beats me why they like them like that), but thankfully Onata Aprile’s Maisie is the antithesis of

performance of Aprile, whose constant, passive presence has you locked in her buffeted world. This is a gem of a movie, full of tenderness, compassion and, in the end, forgiveness. ~ John Campbell

Now You See Me First impressions count for so much. This brain-strain heist flick opens with a trick of disarming cleverness. One of the magicians of the Four Horsemen, Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), offers ‘pick a card’ to an onlooker (and, inescapably, to you in the darkened cinema). He performs a sleight of hand then correctly nominates the one card out of fifty-two that his subject (and you!) selected. I am baffled as to what psychological devilment was involved, and my companion (who had chosen the same card) was equally astounded. From that minute we were riveted. Atlas’s three cohorts are Merritt (Woody Harrelson), Henley (Isla Fisher) and Jack

Each year the school opens its grounds to the children, parents, teachers, friends, locals and visitors alike and invites them to join together to celebrate the return of spring with a day of music, fun, food and festivities. This year’s theme, The Up-Cycled Enchanted Forest, will see our beautiful school grounds converted into an enchanted forest through the creative use of pre-used materials. Children and parents are invited to dress up as their favourite enchanted character. Fairies, gnomes and pixies and dwarfs are all welcome.

MULLUMBIMBY BOWLO has certainly spiced things up with the arrival of Matt Jackson and his team from Spice it Up. The popular Thai restaurant has made the move to the bigger premises just to keep up with demand. Visitors to the Bowlo will be delighted with the new-look dining room and its colourful wallpaper and curios imported from Thailand to give it an authentic feel. Opening night last Wednesday, September 4 found the same friendly staff and hardworking kitchen team serving a swath of regulars keen to experience the new stylish premises. But still, the menu was the main event and Matt is as excited as ever about bringing genuine Thai food and his own creations to his loyal patrons. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mullum is a chilled, laidback place and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we reflect here. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to create a relaxed atmosphere where people can have a meal and a beer overlooking the greens in a great location close to town.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Matt is just back from Thailand where he goes as often as possible. There he always catches up with his head chef, Arn Nilsalud, from his days as an apprentice twenty years ago at the River Thai on the banks of the Brunswick River. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was exposed to the exciting and cultural fundamentals of Thai food and the Thai culture which I fell in love with and which has led me on a fantastic journey.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; His inspiration comes from a throng of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;loyal customers and wonderful staff.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Thursday evenings 6.30pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;8.30pm Oct 17â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov 28 TO ENROL â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Contact Byron Community College at www.byroncollege.org.au or call 02 6684 3374 Participants will learn to be of genuine service to others, who may be family or friends, who are dying and who have chosen to die at home. Any person can attend this course, and it can, if you wish, lead on to full training as a volunteer carer for Byron Hospice Service (formerly Amitayus). This course is run as a personal, interactive, and safe exploration of the many issues that may arise around death and dying, grief and loss. Byron Hospice volunteers are committed to serving people who wish to spend their last precious days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to die peacefully â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in their own homes. In happily offering this service, we also serve as support for primary carer(s). Please call 6684 3808 and leave a message, with your contact details. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get back to you soon to arrange a meeting to discuss what our service (and its carers) can offer.

To meet the twins & their friends, visit the Cat Adoption Centre at 124 Dalley St, Mullumbimby.

n early flowering season, a high pollen count rising to very high on Monday, temperatures forecast to rise to 28C and an extensive program of hazard reduction burns has prompted Asthma Foundation NSW to issue a general warning to the 800,000 people in NSW who live with asthma. Fire authorities have warned that winter rains added fuel to grassland regions and now warm temperatures and low rainfall are drying it out, creating an above-normal fire potential for the 2013â&#x20AC;&#x201C;14 fire season in NSW. Roughly onethird of NSW is already classed as a high fire risk after almost the whole state recorded a rainfall level below or very much below average during August. To counter this threat the Rural Fire Service (RFS) has already started an extensive program of hazard reduction burns right across the State producing wood smoke that can trigger asthma symptoms or an attack.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While wood smoke poses a health risk for asthmatics and people with other lung or respiratory conditions, the hazard reduction work that the RFS does now is vital to protect property and lives during the warmer months when bushfires are a threat,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Michele Goldman, CEO of Asthma Foundation NSW. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The one-in-ten adults and children who live with asthma should be aware that exposure to wood smoke could make asthma symptoms worse and trigger a potentially fatal attack. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We should always be mindful that asthma claims the lives of over 400 Australians each year.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weather patterns no longer seem to be conforming to old seasonal norms and neither it seems is nature. One of the

warmest winters on record has produced a very high pollen count after only a week of spring. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Scientists have warned that one of the side-effects of global warming may be that plants will have longer or more than one flowering season,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Ms Goldman. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pollens, which are drawn up into the atmosphere and distributed by wind and thunderstorms, are a major concern because 80 per cent of asthmatics also have allergies. Allergies trigger asthma attacks in 60â&#x20AC;&#x201C;90 per cent of children and in 50 per cent of adults.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 

Allergic reaction An allergic reaction occurs when a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immune system overreacts to substances found in the environment known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;allergensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Sneezing and itching are common visible signs. While allergies are unpleasant enough for anyone, for people with asthma they are a particular problem because they can also trigger an asthma attack, causing airways to contract and making it difficult to breathe. Pollen is one of the most common asthma triggers. Literally hundreds of different agents can trigger an allergic reaction or an asthma attack. It can be helpful to know what your asthma triggers are so that you are prepared, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more important to make sure that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the right medication so that you have the strongest defence when you do encounter one of your triggers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you think you may have allergies, see your GP to talk about options for allergy testing and management,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Ms Goldman. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Spring is a very good time to see your GP to get or update your individual asthma

action plan. People with written asthma action plans tend to have better asthma control, fewer attacks and fewer days off school or work.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If your asthma gets worse during spring here are some practical tips for controlling asthma: t&OTVSFZPVUBLFZPVSQSF venter medication every day to stop asthma symptoms flaring up during high-risk days. Keep your reliever medication close at hand at all times, and make sure you use it as soon as you get symptoms. t*OUIFFWFOUPGBOBJSQPM lution event, such as wood smoke, a dust storm or ozone (created on hot days by traffic fumes and wood smoke from bushfires and hazard reduction burns), consider working from home. Let your employer know how these conditions affect your asthma and try to negotiate a flexible working arrangement. t0OIJHIQPMMVUJPOPSIJHI pollen days postpone outdoor exercise. t8IFOUIFSFBSFMPUTPGUSJH gers in the air, stay indoors, and if you can, use your air conditioner to filter and circulate the air in your home. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open your windows or you will let the pollens or pollution inside, where it will settle all over your home t4IPXFSBOEXBTIZPVSIBJS when you come home in the evening. This helps keep pollens and pollution from rubbing off you and onto your bed, where it could exacerbate your asthma all night. Keep track of pollen levels via the Asthma Foundation NSW website www.asthmaaustralia.org.au. The NSW Rural Fire Service has the latest information on hazard reduction burns or bushfires at www.rfs.nsw.gov. au or call 1800 NSW RFS (679 737).

Rural doctors welcome new govt The Rural Doctors Association of Australia (RDAA) has congratulated the coalition on its weekend election victory, adding that it is looking forward to working with the new federal government to improve access to local healthcare services for rural and remote Australians. RDAA CEO Jenny Johnson said the Association had been particularly pleased with the strong interest the coalition had shown on rural health is-

sues during its time in opposition, and trusted this would flow through to its time in government. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have welcomed the coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to increase rural medical infrastructure funding to ensure rural practices can teach and train more medical students and young doctors, and also to increase the incentive payment for doctors who provide this training,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said.

There’s nothing like being an SLSC Nipper It’s that time of year when the weather is staring to get warm. We drag our old bathers (swimmers, togs, trunks) from the bottom of the drawer, we decide they are too small, we promise to go on a diet and then we buy new ones before heading off to the beach. Each year millions of swimmers are watched over by the volunteers of surf life saving clubs and the seeds of this service lies in the juniors, or Nippers as they are known. Nippers is about learning, confidence and having fun in a safe beach environment. For Nippers, the beach is the classroom. They gain confidence by passing the ‘tests’ of swimming, body boarding, beach sprints, dolphindiving, spotting a rip, having fun with new friends and dis-

Shiners coach Shane Ivey acted quickly, injecting the master of calm Sati Siamoa off the bench to tighten things up. The fight back began in Mullum’s forward pack. Hooker Leon MatchettOates seemed to be at every breakdown and props Mitch Arthur and Wally Andrews were running hard and straight. The first scrum of the game ten minutes in saw the Mullum pack smash Iluka piggies with a driving maul that gained 30 metres. Mitch Arthur carried the ball deep into Iluka territory and got a clever offload away, positioned for the recycled ball and bulldozed through the defence to peg a try back.

Byron’s marvellous season closes

Season over for NRRRL

Peter Griffin

Eve Jeffery

Byron Bay rugby’s marvellous season has come to an end with defeat by Lismore in the First Grade Preliminary Final on Saturday. The grand achievement of finishing third in the club’s return to the top grade was in no way diminished by the 55–5 loss. Byron had walked a tightrope all season, conjuring victories with their small squad, but in the end the weight of injuries was too great against the premiership favourites. Byron took 17 players into the game but at least three players would not have played on a normal Saturday. Captain Harry Nuttall and walking medical journal Craig Wallace had reached the ends of their tethers. Nutall was central to the Bay’s heroic semifinal victory against Lennox Head but on Saturday his damaged shoulder was completely debilitating. The champion flanker chose not to be substituted and bravely finished the game on the left wing. When Wallace finally left the field with only minutes remaining he received a fitting ovation from the crowd.

The grand final of the Northern Rivers Regional Rugby League gave us everything we love about football on Sunday at Kingsford Smith Park in Ballina. As the A Grade players from the Ballina Seagulls and the Murwillumbah Mustangs lined up for Suzie Teys’ national anthem, little did Murwillumbah know it was Ballina’s secret weapon. Suzie sang for the troops the last time Seagulls won the premiership. But it wasn’t luck that was on the field on Sunday. It was pure, driven hard work and both teams meant business. Ballina won a tough battle to come out victors at 30–24. After the siren Ballina captain Greg Ryan said that the semi win two weeks ago didn’t make the team think the grand final was a shoe-in. ‘We knew they were probably a little bit off that day’, he said. ‘We knew they would come out hard today and we had to match them for 80 minutes. That was the key today.

Byron were defensively sound in the early part of the game but their reshuffled formation could not deliver any momentum in attack. Lismore worked for territory, built pressure and were inevitably rewarded with two pushover tries. Minutes later the contest was all but over when centre Rob Lynch was forced to leave play with concussion. AJ Humphries showed his class and versatility by coming into the midfield. Byron continued defending but Lismore took a 22–0 lead to the break.

Lismore scored three tries early in the second half but with the finishing post now in sight the Bay matched their opponents in the late stages of the game. Byron’s best was Wallace and he was rewarded with the Bay’s only try. It was a sight we have seen many times this season; the Irishman tucking the ball under his arm and charging through the opposition defence. There were no poor performers for the Bay. Playmaker George Kitching was class while the best of the forwards were locks Ryan Betts and Matt Larsson. With the entire

squad likely to back up next season and the prospect of further players, the Bay will be a force in First Grade for years to come. Byron’s Player of the Year Awards Night is being held at the Great Northern backroom on Thursday September 19. Many will remember the occasion last year celebrating the Bay’s Grand Final win. There is just as much reason for celebration this year and all the Bay’s supporters are all welcome. Tickets will be available from the Northern and the Rails from the end of this week.

‘We always knew this was going to be tough. They came out of the blocks hard and we knew they were going to do that. We weathered the storm, but credit to our blokes, we knew we could stay in the game.’ Ryan says the team felt as if they could win the 2013 trophy. ‘We were confident we would get the job done; it was just a matter of getting through our sets and doing it for each other.’ Ryan said his team were very motivated for the premiership and that the Mustangs’ surge did give him a scare – he looked toward the clock for answers. ‘It’s been 20 years since this club won the premiership. I was quite happy to hear that siren go at the end.’ The Marist Brothers also had a very successful outing – Murwillumbah was out of luck again in the 18s with a 28–12 loss to the Marists and the Ghosts also had little to celebrate on the bus ride back to Grafton with a 26–22 loss that went down to the wire in golden point extra time.

Shand’s famous friendliness gets serious for finals Brian Mollet

Shand series cricket is famous for its friendliness; players of all standards and indeed states of mind can get out and have a hit without feeling like they have to restrain themselves from breaking the jaw of the seventeen-year-old sledger on the other team that thinks he’s pretty good. At finals time, however,

things get about as serious as they are going to get in social cricket and on Sunday the Byron Full-Tossers arrived at Lomath Oval with their best squad, having been prised away from their other pursuits of surfing, philandering and separating tourists from their money. Left Bank players mostly sit on their front porches with their rifles across their knees

when not playing cricket, and always show up locked and loaded. Scruff won the toss and asked Byron to bat with the Oval glowing like Tony Abbott’s gloating smile. Jade faced 12 of the first 15 balls and gunned down the bowling like extras on a Rambo movie, strolling off with 30 to his name. Fired up from watching the Moonshiners on Satur-

Rollers sit second on Coalition ladder

Recently The Bay Rollers took on their derby sisters the Tweed Valley Vixens, in a double header of derby in Lismore. Coming out strong from the first whistle, the Bay Rollers soon extended their lead by well over 100 in the first 15 minutes.

While their second half saw more skaters in the penalty bin for rules infractions, the Bay Rollers came home strong with a 201 point win 257–56. MVP was awarded to Slingshot Polkadot, The Bay Rollers captain.

day, the sprightly Phil (4–13) fleeced the top order with his dippy inswingers and some athletic work in the field by a dark streak on the grass that was probably Jase. Troy (48) was doing some damage at one end but Stewie (3–9) and Scruff (2–4) sent the rest of the Full-Tossers packing for 130. On what looked like a batsman’s day this looked as shy as a debutante’s first date. No-one told the Tossers this, however, as wickets to new ballers Jade and Adam, a double for ‘Hollywood’ Frankie and one for skipper Ash reduced the Bankers to 5–48 in the first session. Greg-O opened the batting and grafted his way to 30 but Jamie (2–14) and Christian bagged scalps as the Bankers staggered towards the total. Aaron (21) looked like he would win the day for the Bankers until he fell to a gleeful Janny, leaving nine to score from the last over and the last men in retiree GregO (43–n/o) and ‘Stonewall’ Phil. Jeff closed out the last six balls to bring the Byron Tossers home by four runs and eliminate last year’s winners Left Bank. Next week the mighty Geckos face the Suffolk Swingers in the second semifinal.

Ben Pietzsch owner of Extreme Mixed Martial Arts Byron Bay has always wanted a custom surf board and who better to pick than Al Emery owner of Emery Surf Boards to design and manufacture the perfect board. Ben was so happy with the process and service from the team at Emery he decided to let one of Extreme MMA members have the same experience. Extreme MMA had an in-house competition and the winner of this fantastic prize and experience was Sonia Moore. Congratulations to Sonia Moore. Look out for more opportunities to win your very own board as the team at Extreme are going to open the competition up to the general public just before the grand opening of their new facility in the industrial estate. Coming very soon is 1000 sq2 of the best training anywhere on the Northern Rivers. Grand opening dates coming soon.

I want to be a strata manager when I grow up School leavers who haven’t quite made up their minds about their future careers are being encouraged by BCS Strata Management to consider a career as a strata manager. BCS CEO Greg Haywood said strata management was not really considered a career option by school leavers or people considering a career change. We’d like one day to hear people say I wanted to be a strata manager when I grew up and here I am. The role involves such a variety of day-to-day tasks that it’s impossible to suffer from “Groundhog Day”,’ he said. ‘School leavers who have had some experience with customer service by working in hospitality or retail while still at school are ideal candidates for a career in strata as usually they already have customer service and people skills. The strata industry is always looking for new and enthusiastic people to train as strata managers and can offer a career path depending on the goals of the individual. ‘Some may want to work for a company and can do very well, while others may eventually want to start their own business. The sector is such that it is possible to do either and be very successful,’ Mr Haywood explained.

inside.

Recently new training courses, including a Diploma in Management (Strata), Diploma in Management (Finance), and Diploma in Management (Business) had been piloted by BCS to help staff advance their careers. Workplace surveys of employees continually show that education and career pathways are factors in keeping employees engaged. ‘The new Diploma in Management (Strata) course developed by our HR department was very successful and we’d like to see this course offered more broadly,’ Mr Haywood said. In NSW the minimum qualifications required to be a strata manager are those that have completed a Certificate of Registration and registration with the NSW Office of Fair Trading. Strata managers are also required to complete continuing professional development training annually. Find out more about strata management at http://nsw.stratacommunity.org.au.

Latest figures show housing needs more support: HIA The ABS has released GDP figures for the June 2013 quarter which show that residential construction activity continues to struggle, according to the Housing Industry Association. ‘GDP grew by 0.6 per cent in the

second quarter of 2013. This means that economic output is 2.6 per cent higher than in the same period of last year,’ said HIA senior economist Shane Garrett. ‘This growth rate is a little below trend. The performance of new home building

was particularly disappointing with a decline of 2.1 per cent during the quarter. ‘The volume of new home building was still up by 8.5 per cent compared to the June 2012 quarter, although that base of last year was historically low.

Property In Focus p46

Business Directory 46

Auctions & Inspections p51

‘More encouragingly, home renovations activity was up by 1.9 per cent in the second quarter of 2013. However, activity in this segment of the market is still lower than it was twelve months ago and sits only just above a decade low. ‘The combination of weakening residential construction activity and below-trend GDP growth means that strong intervention from policymakers is vital in order to guide the economy back to the right path. ‘There are firm indications that the RBA’s rate cuts over the past two years have helped to lift residential construction off rock-bottom levels. Today’s figures, however, indicate that more rate reductions are needed in order to prevent this recovery from faltering. ‘Today’s figures also indicate that government investment has plunged over the past quarter. The weakening of household spending is not unrelated to this. ‘Government needs to lead the way in these uncertain times. Targeted incentives for investment in productive infrastructure like housing will be of significant benefit, both in the short term and over the longer run.’

Yes, that pretty much sums up the election process.

Welcome to the new regime – the Australian people have spoken. It was not quite the bloodbath trumpeted for Labor but the new government has a relaxed and comfortable majority in the House of Reps. In Byron Shire, Greens’ Dawn Walker blitzed it in many booths, and Justine Elliott owes her ongoing career to those preferences. Federally, the electors showed an extraordinary fondness for billionaire miners and it looks like Clive Palmer will make a colourful addition to parliament; his party also did well across electorates and in the senate vote. Obviously some pockets of libertine lust survive in the nation because the Australian Sex Party (127,700 primary votes so far) outpolled the Shooters and Fishers (84,814) in the senate election.

Aside from the election result, Backlash appreciated the common human decency and civility displayed at the Mullum polling place. An orderly

queue of electors chatting and laughing quietly together, sausage sangas for those so inclined, the new addition of espresso coffee, the Red Cross ladies recruiting loose change to their cause at their table by the door, the helpful and smiling AEC staff. Straya, you’re standing in it. QQQQ

Meanwhile, in the rest of reality, Sample Food Festival at Bangalow on election day showed what Australians are really good at – cooking, eating, drinking and having a fun time. It’s simply strange that we elect leaders who want to involve us in military incursions or expect us to increase productivity. Sheesh, we show up for work, don’t we? QQQQ

We should note, however, that by the time the next election rolls round in 2016 there will be 360,000 people dead of malnutrition, lack of clean water or preventable disease who would still have been alive if Tony Abbott had not taken $4.5 billion from the

The overzealousness of some local police officers, particularly in their unwarranted harassment of John Scrivener, led to the alteration of one of Mullum’s entrance signs last week.
