Backlash The DA for a waste management facility at Broken Head Quarry, mentioned last week, has been withdrawn. The proponent has told The Echo that Council staff asked it be considered by the NSW planning department, and claims the footprint needed to recycle local food and plastic waste ‘is very small’ and they will be utilising innovative technology. Could this be a win for localisation, recycling and sustainability? Stay tuned. QQQQ

Local Nationals figurehead Ben Franklin wants to represent us! Except, um, he’s just broken a promise. He told The Echo he wouldn’t run for the seat of Ballina. But changing your mind is okay, isn’t it? Especially when sooooo many people tell you that you should. Good luck, Ben, you’re a nice chap but unfortunately your party is full of climate change deniers and knuckle-dragging troglodytes. See editorial, page 12 BYRON BAY

An endangered Grey Nurse shark was freed from a fishing line at Julian Rocks last week. Video footage, available on echo.net.au, shows Japanese national and Byron Bay diving instructor Inaki Aizpun unhooking the fishing line from its jaws. He told The Echo, ‘It was condemned to a slow and painful death. I felt sorry for the shark and, in my duty to help such a beautiful creature, I grabbed the line from his mouth. After few times trying, I managed to liberate the shark from the deadly fishing net.’ He added fishing nets are ‘destroying vast amounts of marine life in our oceans.’ QQQQ

liar Petter Dutton (Liberal) will fortunately not be the PM leading up to the next election. Potatohead will now sit in the backbench to join all the other has-been gargoyles. Together they will continue to plot more chaos and stagnation for the nation. As they do, they rub pieces of coal together. My preeeeeecccioussss, they repeat. QQQQ
