Thank you Byron Shire Echo (and Echonetdaily), and especially Hans, for such open and honest commentary on our appalling federal ministers over the year, notably the unspeakable Morrison in the last edition.

I’ve been away and it’s a delight to come back to such forthright expressions of opinion; keep it up!
