"We have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity" - Neil Roberts

Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Having a fair bit of inside knowledge myself , I would say that what is posted here is no less Tinged with agenda than what it is alleging against Julian Bachelor and the network of friends or colleges that support the work volunteerilly . My suggestion is that people who live in mud huts should not throw their mud at others !

I smell the odour of bias agenda in this article to defame a fairly selfless acheiver and his associates, who volunteer their efforts selflessly , in their attempt to collectively make a small bit of property a better environment to cohabitate in for others ,albeit over an unspecified time . If you had the vision and support of friends in the wider community to make a slice of heaven out of a sorry mess , wouldn't you be prudent in accepting the challenge too. I think people who live in mud huts shouldn't throw their mud at others unless they like to bear their own shame .
