The Australian Government and the NSW Forestry Service were presenting an alternative to NSW sheep farmers for controlling the dingo population

The Australian Government and the NSW Forestry Service were presenting an alternative to NSW sheep farmers for controlling the dingo population.

It seems that after years of the sheep farmers using the tried and tested methods of shooting and/or trapping the predators, the Labour Government (Peter Garrett – Environmental Minister),

the NSW Forestry Service and the Greens tree-huggers had a ‘more humane’ solution.

What they proposed was for the animals to be captured alive, the males would then be castrated and, wait for it, let loose again.

Therefore, the dingo population would be controlled.

This was ACTUALLY proposed to the NSW Sheep Farmers Association.

All of the sheep farmers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.

Finally, one of the old boys in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back and said, ‘Mr Garrett, son, I don’t think you understand our problem,

the dingo’s aren’t fu<king our sheep, they’re eating them.’

You should have been there to hear the roar of laughter as Mr Peter Garrett and the members of the NSW Forestry Service, the Greens and the other ‘tree huggers’ left the meeting ‘very sheepishly’.

Albert Square Belongs To Multicultural Manchester

Albert Square Belongs To Multicultural Manchester – not the Racist Nazi EDL


Manchester City Council should overrule the Manchester City Partnership decision to offer Albert Square to the English Defence League for a rally next Saturday, March 2nd 2013.


Under no circumstances should the EDL be allowed to use our Town Hall Square as a platform for their hatred against the many and diverse cultures and faiths in Manchester.


Albert Square is in the heart of our city.


Manchester Town Hall is in Albert Square and, throughout the year, it hosts events which demonstrate our Multiculturalism and our Multi Faith City


Right now it is decorated with Chinese lanterns to celebrate Chinese New Year. At the Jewish festival of Hanukkah there is a Menorah. Sikhs use the square for their celebration of the birthday of Guru Nanak. The Hindu festival of Divali is celebrated in Albert Square. At the Christmas Market there is a Nativity in Albert Square. Muslims have prayed in Albert Square on Peace Marches. Later in March, Albert Square will host the annual Irish festival which celebrates nearly 200 years of the Irish immigrant community in our city. Gay Pride started in Manchester’s Albert Square after the protests against the homophobic section 28.


There is no place for the EDL in Albert Square – or anywhere else in Multicultural Manchester! Not on March 2nd or on any other day.
