Hypocrites must go
I write regarding the recent 4Corners report on Ministers Alan Tudge and Christian Porter and Prime Minister Scott Morrison's refusal to remove them from their ministerial posts.
Adultery is cheating. If you cheat in one area of your life you may well cheat in any area whether that's golf, taxes et al. Furthermore this behaviour is typical of emotional immaturity, hardly a character trait ideal in a representative of the Australian people.
I remind the Prime Minister, a professed Christian, that the seventh and tenth commandments, contained within the bible upon which each minister of the government swears an oath, specifically state adultery and coveting someone else's wife are pretty much off limits.
Morrison must remove these two men or be branded a hypocrite, something Porter and Tudge have proven themselves to be.

Traffic statistics of interest
I read with interest the article relating to the Borella Road/Young Street fixed speed camera.
I would be interested to know what the traffic volume versus the serious injury collision percentage is, along with fatal, injury and non-injury versus traffic volume.
While no collisions are the ultimate goal and while it is maintained that it is not a revenue raiser, these figures should be released to justify their existence. And FYI, I haven't received any penalty notices.

A blow to disabled
Shame on you Woolworths Thurgoona for taking away the closest two disabled parking spots for their click and collect parking spots.
They have given just one disabled spot in replacement further along.
IN OTHER NEWS
Not only is this disrespectful to people with a disability it is downright rude as Thurgoona has a large elderly population with disabled parking permits.
I am also disgusted with the Thurgoona plaza management for allowing this change to happen as these spots are always full and it was a case of more disabled spots, not less, being needed.

Council got sums wrong
It appears that Federation Council has not done its sums before, during and after construction of the new pool at Corowa.
The 8 per cent increase in rates for next year is very harrowing to say the least, especially for older ratepayers residing outside of Corowa but still within the Federation Council.
It appears there might have a been a cost blow out. Orginally the project was going to be $8 million. Then it rose to $10 million. I wonder what the cost will be when it is finished in 2021.
The council should have consulted ratepayers with costs and charges, admission prices well before construction even started instead of making up things along the way
