HOW THE PM CAN WIN IN LANDSLIDE
Prime Minister Morrison has the necessary grit and determination to return this nation around on the right course.
The people need to witness a light at the end of the tunnel.
Were he to reinstate the following which the majority are waiting to hear he will romp home with a well deserved through commonsense landslide.
1. Get the mines up and running, we need them.
2. Quash the Paris agreement, that leaves the majority tired of their taxes being exploited elsewhere without their consent (via a referendum to do so).
3. Remove our nation's name from all the sneaky underhanded other obligations to the UN that is bleeding our coffers dry.
4. Leave the savings etc of the retirees alone. They are saving the government money by not having to financially prop them up with pensions, don't run with Labor's swipe here.
5. Build dams, salvage all the run off water that goes wasted into the sea.
Pipe water inland so that farmers always have a water supply to grow the crops, meat etc to feed our nation.
6. Meanwhile set aside the billions of taxpayer's money given away elsewhere as an ongoing fund for disasters like they are suffering on the farms, etc. here.
Charity begins at home.
Give Aussies an incentive to believe they and future generations will actually have a future on commonsense values.

DOES COUNCIL NEED AN ADMINISTRATOR?
What is happening to our council? Should Griffith City Council be put into administration? Hasn’t this petty behaviour gone on long enough?
It seems that our mayor is behaving like a bully in a playground, his behaviour of late is questionable to say the very least. If a grown man, let alone a mayor thinks that it is OK to make a staff member cry, then he is more out of touch than he realises.
Not only this, what is happening within the council, councillors and its staff? We have code of conduct investigations amounting to $98,000, a general manager being paid $300,000, five directors all earning $200,000 per year, a rouge out-of-touch councillor who thinks a rose garden during a drought would be a great idea and a lake full of blue-green algae, oh please!
The public and the ratepayers of Griffith need to be reminded that around 30 serious breaches are still in need of rectifications. Who pays for this Mr Mayor? Ratepayers?
We, as the public, elect councillors to represent the community on our behalf, we deserve to know what goes on; good, bad and ugly. It is prevalent now more than ever with social media, and free speech (although not if you’re a councillor it would seem) that we are more informed, gagging free speech is not only un-Australian, it serves to hide facts.
Freedom of speech does not mean that a person can say whatever they want to say. Freedom of speech means that someone's right to say something is protected within certain limits. A person may have to suffer consequences for saying some things, but they still have the right to say them.
Isn’t it about time the town of Griffith deserves a council that is cohesive and united, not just setting their own agendas. We as a community pay not only financially for their bad behaviour but also ethically, once you lie, your moral compass is broken forever.
