Echo on the move

Job? Gotcha! All the new Byron developments have put a twinkle in the eye of struggling local Tania Strudle. The 23-year-old brunette bombshell is a qualified builder but she’s had to rely on bar work during our so-called Green council’s attack on progress and development.  Tania can lay bricks too. ‘The second lane for Shirley Street, West Byron estate, the hospital, etc all need bricks,’ she said, ‘and Byron with its excess sand is perfectly placed to make its own “Byron Brick” – a natural grey square to signify the town’s new direction.’

The Byron Shire Echo is announcing a change of direction.

For nearly thirty years the newspaper chronicled the life of Byron Shire as honestly and accurately as possible.

We refused to talk down to readers, we avoided sloganistic solutions to complex social problems, we tried to be rational, progressive and responsible.

Well, stuff that.

Those who actually run the joint have shown us that there is no future in the fair go, in protecting the earth or guarding our heritage. It’s coal­mines all the way. Coalmines the size of Sydney Harbour in the Hunter Valley, dredgers and coal freighters fouling the Great Barrier Reef, coal seam gas poisons in our aquifers.

And we’ve just had an election between two sets of thieves and liars who take bribes (‘donations’) to remove power from the people and give it to the filthy rich.

From now on The Echo will stop kicking against the zeitgeist. We’re copying Murdoch in the race to the bottom because that’s where the money is. Bleeding-heart liberals and tree-hugging hippies will get no support from us. We’ve put up a picture of Tony Abbott in the office and applied to join the National Party.

    Well it’s about time you smelly hippies with delusions of journalistic grandeur woke up and smelled the CSG!
    By the way, how come the Echo hasn’t done a story yet on the new MacDonalds store that’s opening in Byron in May?

    I hope that for the sake of equal opportunity and gender equality we will also have page 3 boys and transgender models 😉
