So there we have it in all its arcane splendour - a near perfect MoU for the Bowling Club to acquire and dismantle the RSL Club. They say a picture is worth a thousand words - we have given the future of our clubs into the hands of old white men as portrayed in MNW August 27 - not a woman nor young person amongst them.
I refer to the letter to the editor in MNW 3/9/14 from Tony Toussiant on behalf of the RSL Sub-Branch calling for us all to “vote NO to proposed amalgamation”, yet provide absolutely no reason why we should do so. It simply read like a child sitting in the corner throwing a tantrum until it gets its way.
Australia is ready to follow in the footsteps of the European Union, India and Israel by banning animal testing for cosmetics. The Greens have proposed the End Cruel Cosmetics Bill, and a poll last year showed that 81 per cent of people in the country are opposed to testing cosmetics on animals. It's welcome progress. We need to pass the Greens' bill and then turn our attention to the other reason why thousands of animals are burned, blinded, poisoned and killed for our personal convenience: tests for household products.
