Grumpy guilty…again and again.

January 14, 2018

The free press is a wonderful thing. Free to be cynically selective in it’s reporting.

Once again my heinous crime of campaigning for justice and correct recognition for those Australians who died on the slopes above ANZAC Cove has gained me an Advertiser news story spot in the catalogue of crimes committed by Council members across the State.

I have abided by the conditions of my hugely wasteful secret trial at the hands of the Local Government Association, while those “witnesses”  who were careless with the truth walk away.

For the record..yes, I did nudge someone as I made my legitimate way along the corridors of power. Someone considerably younger than my 78 years. Someone who was blocking my right to free passage.

Yes, I did tell a witness who was careless with the truth that I accused someone (rightly) that they should be ashamed of themselves.  No one else further than a metre or two would have heard it, and it was not even caught on a very nearby microphone. Yet that aside was turned , provocatively and incorrectly  by one complainant, into a “yell”.

Doubtless the above will not find favour in certain circles, but I believe  passionately in justice. And justice is NOT what I received.

Nor I contend, will those whose sacred  acknowledgement of the Gallipoli sacrifice has been used as a governmental football.

    Someone has to stand up to be heard cobber. The reason there is a decline in everything Aussie is because too few are prepared to have their say. Myself included. I think a lot, debate a lot but am generally too afraid of the social media backlash to say what I really feel. So Councillor, good on you for having the courage of your convictions.

      Thanks for the endorsement. It would have been nice to get full support from my colleagues. Ah, well…
