    Here is a classic example of big business wanting to own everything. It is also an example of how this 'government' is willing to give them everything too...

    What a load of tosh. Honestly some of the nonsense that gets spouted by the government and these bodies with a vested interest defies belief.

    It's like the argument that free range chook farms are a danger to battery farms as they will spread disease. Seriously this stuff just grinds my gears.

    On another note...yesterday I saw that the council had sprayed the few single standing bramble roses along our road that have been there for the last 20 years (not spreading just minding their own business. What sort of mindset does this?
