Kneejerk reaction to the idiot who speared the resident blue at Cronulla. Killed it and dumped it back in the water. Flog. 


The Tim Winton movie Blueback might not have helped either

 Probably the most prolific large reef fish on the east coast and there protecting them. So zero science just away of giving non fishing  green warriors something too feel all warm and fuzzy about this country is funked I'm afraid to say.

 Rods to be labelled "Horrid death machines " which now apparently applies to firearms after an article by a tree hugging "journalist "in the West Australian paper this week. This country has lost the plot completely.

 Yep that was a shocking bit of journalism. I think comparing us to the US is just laughable. I have never been fearful of gun violence here but in the US (where they obviously have a huge problem) it's always a real threat.
