Tripping on public purse My beef is that the rest of us don't seem to get a chance to share them, so we don't know what benefits for us will result, or have resulted, from the tour.
Besides that, the politicians involved may not be around long enough to implement them anyway. For instance, is there a report somewhere of the three week tour made by Giulia Jones and Vicki Dunne in 2014 studying prostitution in Europe? If so, does it state what problem the study was hoping to solve, were our information gaps filled, what improvements to the present sex work environment in the ACT should be made and what is expected to eventuate from them, and what does it tell us that we didn't know already? Perhaps either Giulia or Vickie might enlighten us some time. Still, as Giulia once told us that poking fun at Hitler was anti Semitic, I'm not expecting much profundity there. Bill Deane, Chapman Propaganda, not news I read "Armidale's capital territory" (January 1, p10) and thought, "Funny, it doesn't say 'advertising feature"', and was also surprised to confirm that Stephen Jeffery is a Canberra Times employee and not from the Armidale Chamber of Commerce, because this was pure propaganda, not news. Mark Chapman, Palmerston Kiwi bashing so unfair Gee, Gerry Murphy: must you be so unkind to our best buddies on the other side of the ditch (Letters, January 1)? Have we not said more than enough, derisively, about the RNZAF louis vuitton speedy 30 amazon sans fighters, and the porosity of its sea borders due to sparse, under equipped tramp steamers patrolling the shaky isles? How can you be so dismissive about the Kiwis' legendary contribution three quarters of a century ago to the Allied victory in WWII? When it comes down to it, they're almost as good as our boys (and girls). What motivated you to discount what louis vuitton at amazon the Kiwi can rise to when the good old Haka is exhibited at inconsequential sporting events? It can't be envy, surely! Patrick Jones, Griffith Cutting to the chase In 44 BC, on steps near the Theatre of Pompey, Julius Caesar was stabbed to death by Longinus and Brutus. Some 2000 years later, perhaps the globe's most significant act of terrorism was facilitated by box cutters. Primitive "weapons" changed the course of history in both instances. Trump promises to expand military spending and modernise nuclear weaponry, which, doubtless, would encourage China and Russia to retaliate correspondingly. Meanwhile, amid the kerfuffle over the presidential campaign hacking, reports emerge of operation Grizzly Steppe, which may be related to the former using phished louis vuitton agenda refill pd85wu emails to trick a Vermont utility into revealing its passwords ("Russians hack into US grid", January 1, p14). From knives to keyboards, simple "weapons" have greater potential to influence events much more subtly, and inexpensively, than inordinately costly "shock and awe" or multiple headed nuclear missiles. With cyber warfare already being waged by nations against nations, and governments against citizens why is it thought necessary to donate zillions to prop up the anachronistic military industrial complex, merely to continue "developing" arsenals designed to fight wars of a bygone age? Australia's intent to invest $50billion plus in submarines, and billions more in Joint Strike Fighters, proves Turnbull's commitment to an agile, innovative, disruptive economy is just lip service, with arms manufacturers salivating and trembling with excitement, anticipating tax free dollars flowing to their offshore havens. Instead, were Turnbull not in thrall to his fascist right coterie, he might be committing to investing in a strong, cohesive, educated, proud, independent Australia. Albert M. White, Queanbeyan Toy ships weigh anchor So Gerry Murphy sails toy ships in his bathtub (Letters, January 1). Says it all really! Eric Hunter, CookMichael McCarthy (Letters, January 6) is absolutely correct. The One Nation and Donald Trump supporters are striving for a future that's unrealistic and unobtainable, and handing louis vuitton neverfull history power to those who sold them lies. In doing so, they're ultimately delivering a future that nobody wants. James Allan, Narrabundah Gun rhetoric off target So, police are looking for two men with a handgun who committed a home invasion in Canberra ("Police calling for witnesses of Calwell home invasion", January 6). Maybe the AMA's Live Registry could help? Except that illegal guns aren't registered and the users aren't licensed.
Or maybe we could just ban guns? Except that criminals are still importing and manufacturing them, or acquiring guns imported before the 1996 buyback, and therefore will still have guns and the capacity to use them. As for the police stating that because this was a targeted attack the public have nothing to fear, I am a little confused. How are two proven violent criminals with a firearm no threat to the wider community? And just because this was a targeted attack, what is to stop them changing target next time? Or getting the wrong address.
