Working Globally Helps Me Live Locally

I love globalisation. There. I said it. Globalisation’s focus on unfettered economic growth rather unfettered good has given the word a bad name, is all. I think globalisation can be done much better with a greater care for people and planet – with a focus on doing good for all rather than simply doing better than everyone else. 21st Century globalisation…

Fed up residents call for relocation of odour emitting industry after 9 months of government neglect

Fed up residents of Salisbury and Moorooka, who have lived with a noxious industrial odour for 9 months, are calling for the relocation of industrial surface coating on plastic away from the Salisbury Industrial Estate.

Appalling fundamentalism hits Moreton households

When did it become OK to be mean?

These guys call themselves ‘conservatives’?? I don’t want progressive policy in the area of refugees!! I simply want to revert back to the 1970s when asylum seekers were processed in the Australian community in open reception centres. And so called ‘border security’ was just as important then as it is now, so don’t give me that…

Here’s the cost of our living, Newman.

My goodness, a Newman Government Minister finally proposes something wonderful and it gets knocked on the head by Newman, with rhetoric about the ‘cost of living’. This week Queensland Government Environment Minister Andrew Powell was raising in the media the idea that the Government is starting to seriously consider a ban on plastic bags in…
