In response (to my response) Tim Harrington I fear will never be convinced that the world is not run by ‘lefties’ regardless of the facts and the overwhelmingly obvious fact that current world powers are run by right wing extremists.

As the right has been in control for some time now globally, shouldn’t they be held largely responsible for our current Armageddon? 

In relation to The Guardian being a hub for left wing propaganda, The Guardian along with The Observer (it’s sister paper published on Sundays) won nine Press Awards in 2018 and four in 2019. The Press Awards celebrate the BEST of UK National journalism, that is organised by the The Society of Editors who are ALL obviously left wing ‘deplorables’ as well?

Their journos have won many ‘Specialist Awards’ for outstanding and independent journalism and they rely on significant funding from ‘average’ citizens within the UK and  across the world… all lefties no doubt.

Regarding Fairfax media which I detailed in my last letter, it merged with Channel 9. This can hardly be seen as ‘left wing’.

I’m not offended to be labelled ‘left wing’, as you said my comments aligned with those of The Guardian, the ABC, The Echo and Mungo… I have never been so thrilled and honoured. You put a smile on my face, which I haven’t managed over the past four months of unprecedented bushfires and tragedy. That’s probably a ‘leftie plot’ as well?

If leftie means actively doing something about our environmental crisis, human rights, and escalating social justice issues – then burn me at the stake!

Your side always bleats about the ‘left’ championing these issues and taking the credit, but guess what? Your side usually does nothing. So yes, I am one of the ‘deplorables’ (nasty language). Kooky enough to believe that logging native forests does not save koalas, that the Great Barrier Reef needs immediate protection (11,000 ships pass through it annually) that the Murray-Darling Basin is stuffed because not enough ‘lefties’ were involved.

There needs to be a huge shift, we’re already in the sixth mass extinction. We can no longer conduct business as usual. Hello! Our planet is our life support system.

    Leftwing Government’s lindy is socialism
    The world’s population’s are not stupid enough to
    Vote in such madness !’ Socialism has never been
    Successful in any country . You only have to look
    At whats happening in Venezuela prime example
    Of socialism lindy ! Hence why lefties with
    Ideologies such as Venezuela will not be
    Elected in various countries around the world
    For that very reason . The resent labor leader
    In the UK is another example , the democrats
    In the US , and our own labor party leader
    And the Greens new leader all absolute socialist!
    Once again lindy socialism has never been a success in any country in history ! Thats why
    They will never be voted in . As for the ABC ,
    The Guardian bias is a understatement!
    The echo are prepared to listen and post
    Views that they may not agree with .
    That’s democracy! To the Echo team 👌

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
