OK, is it me Loons or is the latest “tribute” to the first woman elected to local government in Victoria (in 1920) kinda crap. The tribute is…wait for it… the replacement of the “green walking man” signal with a “green walking woman”, who looks like friggin Mary Poppins. And NO, she will only appear at one set of traffic lights for a period of 12 months. I’m thinking Councillor Mary Rogers should at least get a statue … not a yes it is OK for you to “walk” now tribute. Please tell me this wasn’t thought up by a group of men….please?

The Victorian Parliament of Australia is about to pass legislation which will make it a criminal offence to assault, obstruct, hinder, threaten, abuse, insult or intimidate Gaming Minister Michael O’Brien. The reason? The Victorian government feel it’s “reasonably necessary to respect the rights and reputation of the minister and authorised persons”. Hmm, yeah,isn’t that’s the same reasoning as China and North Korea? Anywho, once the law is passed it won’t be long before every minister in Australia will be seeking the same privilege. Bye, bye democracy, accountability and freedom of speech .
Psst If found guilty of an insult, that’s a $12,000 fine right there!
Oh for crying out loud son, get a job. A young Victorian man made a real mess of a bakery burglary after he climbed through a skylight into a locked storeroom and couldn’t get out. Every slap stick move was caught on surveillance camera. Oh boy, it’s painful to watch. Anywho, he eventually handed himself into police and has now been charged.
OMG, whilst I’m on the theme of Armageddon, farmers in rural Victoria have unearthed beds of locust eggs some 15m long. Plague! Plague! Plague! So far the Department of Primary Industries has had 430 reports of locust egg beds.If they hatch it will be a second generation locust nightmare. The area is only just recovering from the initial plague. So why hasn’t Hollywood got wind of this?
