    I actually love my little pocket in amongst the city-ish life. It's like a village. I had everything I needed in 4 blocks during March lockdown.

    But big supermarket - it does not have!

    This is the way to do it.
    Do it subtle.
    Everywhere.
    The backpackers and vanlifers have farked it

    How is any council allowed to give cash out to big media.

    I knew a cfo that told me once their company had to pay newscorp regular blackmail payments to stay out of the news. If they didn't pay, bad stories were certain. They paid to stay on a safelist.

    Yes. One of the councillors who voted against has been very vocal.

    That funds could be better spent elsewhere. He hasn’t mentioned ICAC.

    Fair call, but if the spending of the funds is on the dodge (or even smells as if) then it needs to be dealt with.

    As far as I can make out our (SA) statewide ICAC picks up Councils.

    So do these schools do sport? Explains why the school groups my ski instructor gets are incapable of learning to ski. Explains youth obesity. Just so much about that that is so wrong.

    Agree, and they do in NSW too. But I don’t know any details so can’t comment.

    And Ian Hicks is back on facebook. So difficult to resist the temptation to play. It worries me that people get taken in by the crap these people are sprouting.

    I had to stay a couple of nights at the Cooma Motor Lodge (next door to Rhythm) last week thanks to car troubles. There was a bunch of HP staying there, I said g'day, turns out they're all there for NSW/VIC border patrol. Apparently there's so many of them they're spread out to where ever they can get accommodation. These guys had to leave at 4:30 am every morning and drive 1 hr 45 minutes south to their patrol spot on the border.

    Was talking to my ski instructor today:
    People from the clay pits are now just parked all around town. Police cannot fo anything about it.
    Police are being called regularly to apartments and telling people they are only allowed 10 people. The rule is 20 visitors.
    Lots of people being forced to drive up who would normally catch the skitube. Not staff but people who have jobs up there.
    Instructors are busy because lots of people have already left. Normally they are underworked at this time.
