  1. I go along with Richard Hil. I really enjoyed the Ngara entity. Seems to me the “Turning Point Talks” has been taken over by nut jobs.

  2. While Dr Hil may choose to believe in the ABC of propaganda he should allow others to question…….
    This continuous play of anti-semitic and conspiracy cards to silence wears ever thinner.

  3. I also go along with Richard Hill. Turning Point Talks meetings are not comfortable informative meetings that welcome everyone. They are meetings of the converted and are not offering any solutions, nor are they trying to include all the community in a loving effort to improve the world.

  4. II am disappointed in that I went on line this morning at 5.30 am to book for the drive in movie. Unfortunately no tickets as all sold out. All the adverts. Indicated tickets were available today the 14 Jan.
    Why were tickets sold before the due date.?
