Worrigee Road not just perilous for the living
Whilst the roadworks are welcomed, spare a thought for the funerals that have to travel south on the Worrigee Road pot hole course!
The section between Regalia Drive and Isa Road is narrow and in desperate need of a complete resurface.
I've approached council and was told that the funding keeps getting slipped back to cover other work.
My car suspension can't put up with too many more drives along that beautiful stretch of road.

Address thanks for roads c/o local member
There are those that will say how wonderful the Federal government is for providing additional funding for South Coast Roads.
However, none of this additional money would exist if it wasn't for a hardworking Federal Member like Fiona Phillips who works constantly from opposition to achieve these outcomes.
Without such continuous and relentless effort nothing would happen in Gilmore.

Social contract key to recovery for economic, environment
"If you don't taper down restrictions, you can't taper down support for businesses affected by those restrictions" - well said, Stephen Jones MP.
That is the distilled truth.
If government changes the social contract, the trading rules, the basis of doing business, it must help these PEOPLE to survive and if necessary transition to a new living.
Instead, after 48 years of warning about environmental and economic collapse (Limits to Growth), after 32 years of international scientific agreement that atmospheric carbon would cause catastrophic climate disruption (International Panel on Climate Change), the Morrison federal government chooses to subsidise and encourage MORE (not less) gas and coal production.
Even more perverse, this government will do it partly by diverting funds intended for transitioning AWAY from fossil fuels.
This is not only anti-scientific, contrary to the legislation, but contrary to the well-being of our citizens and of all nations. It is, in short, immoral.
