Editorial: The beef about meat

Firstly, let me declare an interest: I have been a vegetarian for 49 years, so tasty cow parts are not high on my agenda.

Tweed Heads brothers Joseph and Jayden Brady, who had been missing for more than a week, handed themselves in to police at Suffolk Park around midday today (Tuesday).

The pair had been hiding out with their father in dense bushland in the Arakwal National Park adjacent to Tallow Beach for more than a week.

The boys were encouraged to contact police after their father was jailed on Monday for breaching bail conditions on another matter.

Police accepted the 11- and 14-year-old boys were staying voluntarily with their father, who was separated from their mother, but said they were concerned about their safety.

The boys will be returned to their mother.

Their father, Damien Brady, will remain behind bars until a court hearing on October 16.

  1. I’m glad the boys have voluntarily reappeared. This shows at least some sensible thinking on their behalf. I hope somehow the family can move forward and the boys are well supported by their local community.
