Gun logicMemo to the National Party, the Shooters Party and their friends:everything you say about guns also applies to drugs.
Responsible personal use of drugs does no-one any harm.There are plenty of drug-users who are simply fed up with the government interfering in their lives.
And we know that banning drug use does nothing to stop drug-related crime.So, members of the gun lobby: if you’re looking for a large number of people around the whole country who will most definitely support you if you support them.
Thanks for the supportThanks to the generosity of Coles customers in Port Macquarie, Redkite is now able to assist more families with children affected by cancer.
Coles’ three stores in Port Macquarie combined have raised over $14,200 from customer and team donations, contributing to the $20 million Coles has raised nationwide since 2013.
In addition to customer and team donations, five cents from the sale of every loaf of Coles Brand and Traditional High Top Bread sold in Port Macquarie is donated directly to Redkite.
This support is helping to transform cancer care in Australia.
Every six hours in Australia, a child or young person is diagnosed with cancer. Redkite is the national children’s cancer charity providingsocial workers and music therapists in hospitals, information and counselling, financial assistance, andeducation and career support to children, young adults and their families who are impacted by cancer.
We couldn’t do it without the incredibly generous support of Coles, the amazing fundraising efforts of its team and the big-hearted community ofPort Macquariethat supports Coles’ activities such as its Christmas card campaign.
I’d like to offer enormous thanks to Coles, its charity champions, team and, importantly, generous customers inPort Macquarie.

Nats flip-flopI have called-out the NSW Nationals for flip-flopping on the Native Vegetation Act.
This follows a petition posted on the NSW Nationals website and Facebook page on Sunday saying that the laws are “crippling our farmers” and treating farmers “like second-class citizens on their own land.”
If the NSW Nationals were so concerned about Native Vegetation laws they would have supported my colleague Robert Brown’s 2014 bill to change those laws and reinstate a farmer’s right to clear their own land.
Every single National Party MP stood side-by-side with Labor, The Greens to oppose my bill written by NSW Farmers.
The Nationals wanted to support it but they were just doing what the Liberal Party told them to do, so they opposed it.
