I have been reading the Byron Shire Echo for many years and Soapbox is sometimes mildly amusing and sometimes provocative, but Mandy Nolan absolutely nailed it with her piece on Bad Boy Barnaby.
This was her finest column ever, full of black humour and double entendres, whilst absolutely accurate.
The language was incredibly well crafted. Well done Mandy, it was your best piece of comedic writing and you deserve an award for this.
How disturbing that this entitled man holds so much national power (pun intended) and believes he should continue to maintain it.
Jade Vickery, Lennox Head
