  1. This was inevitable as tourism money was bound to trump common sense.

    Before these holidays are over there will be more cases in the Shire, all owing to the carelessness and stupidity of visitors who, while they might not s4!t in their own backyards, are quite happy to come and s4!t in ours. Tourism and other business operators who encourage those visitors are also culpable.

    P-off, you pestilential terrourists! We value our health far more than your money. Go home and stay home!

  2. I’m bemused the multiple offender wasn’t sent back to Cronulla…..assuming here of course she would be self driving with her registration plate on police radar whilst travelling the M1 GIVEN HOW MUCH WE COULD ALL LOSE BY HER UNCONSCIONABLE BEHAVIOUR!!!

  3. So, she was fined a second time. And then what ? Where is she now?
    Some irresponsible idiot like her is all we need to turn Byron Shire onto a Hot Spot so we cant get into QLD or any other state.
    Has she been tested yet?
    Where the hell is she.
    This story leaves us wondering.
