I have not had any mobile phone service since Monday March 21. The Telstra outages site tells me I will not have any until 7pm March 28.
I am in the middle of arranging some medical procedures & not having a phone connection is very inconvenient and stressful.
It's a hard battle for the Liberal Party and Scott Morrison! They don't just have to convince the voters. They have the ABC to contend with.
Surely you have noticed the dramatic difference which most ABC interviewers display when interviewing a Labor candidate compared to a Liberal one.
I ask the question. If Kimberley Kitchen was a Liberal Senator and treated in the same way by her Liberal colleagues would the ABC have reported this any differently?
Please, please do not wreck this beautiful bush walk with luxury accommodation and so on. It would ruin this wilderness. In fact it would no longer be wilderness.
I have a dream, as the saying goes. I dream that Australia is a world heritage nation, based on the custodianship of our First Nations who spent 65,000 years here.
The South East NSW region has the highest percentage of original bush national park in Australia, according to the recent publication of a map on the internet. The biodiversity of our country extends back to the heritage of the Gondwana era when we were attached to Antarctica.
The post-COVID-19 era demonstrates how rapidly regional Australia is developing. Our pristine region must be maintained. Ecotourism, not the 40s-60s spending their often obscenely high salaries on luxury tourism.
Follow-the-money is not the motto for regional heritage Australia, as the goal for health and wellness. We in the Bega Valley Shire are morphing into the ACT, and appear to be reflecting what could be a pilot project.
Our First Nations deserve a voice that requires different governance. Regions, not states, offer the potential for the federal governance of regions not states. Socially democratic values are strong already in Australia, and our youth are speaking loudly along the new pathways we are now treading.
The Light-to-Light track should partner the values of the Bundian Way - treasure our ecological biodiversity. Open our bush, mountains and coastlines for respectful tourism that will display the incredible creativity of the nations now.
