Got to thinking the other day regarding the 30 losing polls being experienced by Malcolm Turnbull and his government.

I formed the opinion that it was akin to a young lady asking her best friend why her current boyfriend was not attentive enough to her needs and seemed to lack excitement or enthusiasm when in each others company. Her best friend gave a very thoughtful response in suggesting, maybe he is just not that into you. This just about sums up the electorates attitude towards the PM as well, the polls clearly indicate we have stopped listening and we are simply not into what he is selling.
Time for both of us to get a new best friend and yes there maybe tears but it will be for the best. So Malcolm when will you resign so that we may all find love again!
Over the past week or so there have been new telephone books scattered over the Bomaderry area. Notably, the Cambewarra Road and Lyndhurst Drive areas.
During a morning’s walk I counted at least five, mostly ripped up and scattered. There was also a sealed stack of six in the public telephone booth, outside the Lyndhurst Centre. I guess whoever was paid to distribute them has been less then honest about their delivery. Money has been put into printing them, companies have paid good money for entry into the Yellow Pages and someone has been paid to deliver them.
Such a waste of resources and the impact on the environment is shameful.
I heartily applaud Fairfax Media for the “Fix It Now” campaign. It is a campaign that people who live in the towns and villages from Nowra to Bateman’s Bay who risk life and limb each time they venture on to the Princes Highway, will support.
The Milton Ulladulla Times and the South Coast Register have demonstrated positive community leadership in embarking on this campaign that is so vital to the social and economic wellbeing of the Shoalhaven and South Coast community.
It is regrettable that our local Federal member for Gimore, Ann Sudmalis MP, does not seem motivated or interested in improving the long term safety of the Princes Highway for her constituents.
There has been no progress during her time in Parliament. Fairfax Media is appropriately pressuring Labor to address the lamentable state of the road and its traumatic impact on our community.
It is good news that Fiona Phillips, Labor candidate for Gilmore has arranged a visit by Anthony Albanese, Federal Opposition spokesman for Infrastructure, to see the state of the road for himself.
His foreshadowed meeting with stakeholders and with Fiona Phillips, will develop an Action Plan to fix the highway.
I look forward to seeing Labor’s Action Plan but to make it a reality we must elect a Federal Labor Government, a Government that includes Fiona Phillips, who I am confident will fight tooth and nail to build a safe Princes Highway.
In 2013, Gilmore MP Ann Sudmalis said that she looked forward to “working with the Tony Abbott government to deliver all the projects committed to and now confirmed, especially the Shoalhaven Bridge project phase 2”. Now, Mrs Sudmalis has announced that, “Prime Minister (Malcolm Turnbull) has joined the Build Our Bridge Campaign. And, as your local representative, one of my highest priorities is to deliver a Bridge across the Shoalhaven River”. The Nowra bridge debacle is a clear example of what is wrong with politics in Gilmore. Please Mrs Sudmalis stop all the political spin – get back to basics and deliver the oft-promised bridge.
