Kingscliff RPA bringing it all back home

One of the Tweed Shire’s oldest residents’ associations is celebrating a long-awaited return to the Kingscliff Community Hall.

Local solicitor and now Tweed shire councillor Carolyn Byrne is being censured by council for leaking confidential documents. What ethical standards are solicitors being taught?

What ethical standards are our kids being taught and by whom? Who is teaching parents? Religion only teaches the ethical standards that suit, and look at where that has got the world.

Sometimes the behaviour of the people in this world pisses me off, especially when they are leaders or purport to be community-minded.

If a solicitor betrays ethical standards, even once, they should be sacked from their jobs and disbarred from their profession. It’s not as if they don’t know better than to allow their self-interest to betray them.
