Myrelle Hurst, Murwillumbah.
I wanted to make a comment regarding the Nationals’ display at the Murwillumbah Show, promoting Thomas George and Geoff Provest.
I noticed they were handing out balloons and I asked why are they handing out balloons when they are so bad for the environment?
This was met with sniggers. Really, in this day and age when it is a well known fact that broken balloons are very bad for the environment and wildlife, and given that we live near the Coast, wouldn’t it make common sense by those wanting to govern to just not hand them out?
Just ask Seabird Rescue what the aftermath they have to deal with.
I am sure the party could find something else, non harmful, to hand out to the kids.
The Nationals just don’t appear to care!
