Letters to the editor, Area News: Wednesday, October 18, 2017.

Open letter to Austin Evans and Sussan Ley:

Thanks to Main Stream Media and a letter in the mail I received from John Howard and Tim Fisher at tax payers expense, Austin Evans has squeak in with only 39.8 per cent of the primary vote and a swing of about 13 per cent.

John Howard and Tim Fisher are now on my Rogues Gallery. Social Media is hammering them.

It cost me $250.00 to contest the election and $94.00  for How to Vote cards. I came 4th out of 6 so my budget allows me to contest the next elections against Austin who does not have the intestinal fortitude to debate the four policies which the Electoral Commission accepted:

PRESSURE: Murray candidate Brian Mills turns up the wick on his political opponents despite the recent by-election's conclusion.

  • Remove barrages at the Lower Lakes,
  • Disband the MDBA
  • Ban importation of cancerous orange concentrate
  • Reduce the collusion of the three tiers of Government 
  • I have added a New Hospital for Griffith
  • Debate the effects of the Lima Declaration

Austin, when you refuse to debate the import of cancerous orange concentrate you might  ask Kay Hull to debate whether she honestly does not remember writing in the ‘Area News’ congratulating Valencia orange farmers who had to bulldoze their trees due to Government legislating allowing the importation of cancerous product.

Now that the election is over I will resume debates with Sussan Ley. I will be enlisting the aid of Geoffrey Hudson who wrote in the ‘Area News’ of 9th October about me that ‘he chose to address a stuffed toy rabbit called Sussan rather than Sussan herself.’ …

Instead of Sussan talking to me she assigned her Media Manager Steven Block to discuss the details prior to direct discussion with Sussan the Politician. 

Steve’s final message was ‘As indicated I will continue to chase and come back to you when we have something.’ That was over a year ago. Geoffrey Hudson, if you could get an answer which would help us return Australian profitable control of Australian orange juice manufacturing you would be providing the community with a great service. My only option seems to be to write another script for a debate for You Tube between Sussan the Rabbit and me.

Pundits are already suggesting that the Liberals might lose Farrer in 2019.

Brian Mills, Griffith.

Punjabi’s Multicultural Festival voice

Yesterday (October 14, 2017) I sang a Punjabi poem by the well-known Punjabi poet Shiv Kumar Batalvi in the Griffith Multicultural Festival.

Before singing the poem I said to the audience, "Punjabi is my mother language and I speak it Punjabi is spoken both in India and Pakistan.”

After singing the poem in Punjabi I told the audience the English version of the poem:

   I was attracted by your beauty 

   I was also attracted by your  rose like colour

   When ever I am free from duty

   I watch the book of your face

   When ever you come to my mind

   I start drinking even during the day time

   How much my life is spent and how much remains

   I am puzzled to calculate this

   I had only one helper--disappointment

   That too has gone

Amar Jit Singh, Griffith.
