Quotes

"Irrigation development in this state is the equivalent to what happening in the Ord river and in fact we will irrigate more hectares of land" Mr Oldfield said
...Dr Middleton said: "If the nutritional diseases are markers of a poor diet, the food banks are markers of extreme poverty - the evidence from Trussell Trust suggests the biggest group of users are hard working poor families who have lost benefits, live on low and declining wages and or they have fallen foul of draconian benefits sanctions which propel them into acute poverty and hunger. This is a disastrous and damning indictment on current welfare policy and a shame on the nation. The food banks are providing a real and valued service staving off actual hunger – they are actually keeping people alive."
Nigel Brazier, the fourth generation of his family to run the shop, worked there for 49 years. He said: "It's very sad... it's the fun of selling faggots to people, that's what I will miss."
