If a parent decided to teach their badly-behaved children a lesson by increasing their pocket money they would, at best, be laughed at.
It’s equally laughable that (the Liberal Party) wants to punish badly-behaved banks by giving them a huge cash bonus.
The Royal Commission has found that amongst plenty of other shocking behaviour, the big four banks and AMP charged dead people fees, ripped off small businesses, sold dodgy products and squandered retirees’ savings.
The CBA has been fined more than $700m for money laundering and counter terrorism breaches.
Some ANZ and other bank executives have been charged with criminal behaviour during a $2.5b share deal.
So while Gilmore might be even more neglected now that Mrs Sudmalis and Mr Schultz are fighting each other, we can be comforted by the knowledge that the Liberal Party will persist with their support for a huge increase in profits for banks and bankers shown to be incompetent, dishonest, contemptuous of their customers and, in some cases, allegedly criminals.
Very happy with travel stories
I and all of my family just wanted to thank you so much for the follow up story on Dad (Bob Wade) that was in the Bay Post/Moruya Examiner on Wednesday, June 6, and the Independent on Thursday.
We really appreciate the interest you have had in Dad’s story and his travels to England for the opening of the IBCC and the extensive coverage you have given him.
His friends have really enjoyed reading about his travels too.
Thank you so much.
Not so happy with a travel story
There has been a lot of chatter regarding Councillor Lindsay Brown and his handling of travel entitlements with the councillor refusing to admit any wrong doing and also refusing to make public what the actual problem was.
How dare you say it has nothing to do with us, the ratepayer/taxpayer that keeps you in said office.
The joke that has been Eurobodalla shire council continues.
What does ‘harbour’ mean to you?
The Hub members of Bermagui’s Shop7 Artspace gallery are inviting all artists of the Far South Coast to participate in this annual exhibition.
The show is open to any medium, two or three dimension and includes painting, photography, jewellery, any hand craft, ceramics and sculpture.
The theme of harbour can be applied in any form. Perhaps in its littoral maritime sense or any other way as defined in a dictionary.
Participation fees are $20 per piece or group of small pieces and no commission is charged on sales.
Businesses of Bermagui and surrounding areas are invited to choose their favourite exhibit and provide a voucher to the maker of that piece as credit against a purchase from the business.
Exhibits are to be delivered to Shop7 upstairs at Fishermens Wharf on 19 July by 10am and unsold pieces collected by 3.30pm on August 8.
Artists and the public are invited to an opening at 5.30pm on Thursday, July 19.
Artists are invited to discuss their entries with Pauline Balos on 0468 464 167.
