Byron Shire councillor Rose Wanchap’s newspaper ads are increasing in size in inverse proportion to their basis in fact and her contribution to, and support from, the Byron community.
I am reminded of some popular TV dramas I’ve been watching lately. I’m thinking of Game Of Thrones and Cersei, the wannabe queen, whose desire to have things her way has her forming Faustian allegiances – it’s a series where ambition, lies and money rule – although there’s a lot of sex in GoT and (I’m hoping) none in Council.
Then there’s The Walking Dead, where dangerous non-thinking, braindead creatures have overrun the place and civilisation has broken down.
Finally I realised that of course it was Vikings that probably fits best – treacherous, marauding vandals invade and then destroy, pillage and plunder beautiful places inhabited by peaceful peoples.
