I think that anyone interested in politics is tired of governments always blaming the previous government for just about anything.
The prime minister really shocked me today when he blamed state governments for the continued ban on the shotgun that the Liberal Democrat senator is apparently using as a bargaining chip in negotiations re the industrial laws that the government is promoting.
The PM’s comment seems to reveal that, for him, ideology is more important than the safety of the people.
He also accused Labor of being responsible for refugees dying at sea.
Did he include the loss of a boat which was lost with an estimated 300 plus people on board?
If I remember correctly, that happened during the Howard years and was hushed up for some time.

I have just returned from Wallendbeen rubbish tip after a very unsuccessful visit.
I had six “Woolies” bags of rubbish and 10 chaff bags of recycling and a large box of newspaper recycling.
I was informed by the tip employee that recycling could not be handled as the designated green bins were full.
I was told to put it in the pit.
I understand ‘everyone’ wants the Wallendbeen tip closed and the sooner the pit is filled the better but I feel this is not good enough. Why do we recycle? Just to make money - or to greater reduce the amount of waste material that has to be found a permanent home, ie the pit at Wallendbeen or one elsewhere.
I also am told metal recycling is no longer accepted by the local garbage services as it is not worth enough money for them to take it.
Is this the reason we recycle now?
I thought I heard that metal prices are again on the increase.
Can’t we even take and store metal for a short while?
Do town dwellers who have a kerbside collection realise that this is the state of play in Cootamundra?
Only profitable items will be recycled ie. only some plastics, hopefully most paper and no metal.
