Yeah but there are still the state governments making endless rules and creating new charges to justify their own existance.

Gotta agree. Australian politics is in a sad state right now but I can't believe people can't see right through Abbot! He is such a lame, wet fish - the flying fish that used to land in my cockpit had more substance than him...

Gillard or Abbot?!? Oh, ***** - better head to sea now!

I am totally out of touch with what the poli's are like and what is happening in Aus. I was shocked when Rudd was ousted as i never realised how dis-liked he was. I was also shocked that the libs lost the last election as i thought the un-australian disposing of Rudd would have made Gillard unelectable. I cant believe now that the polls say that labour would win if Gillard was dumped. I would have thought the voters would turn away from labour if they disposed of another leader mid-term.

Note to the mods... I hope you don't kill the political discussion here. Aussies think that all polititians of all parties are low life scum and we vote (because it is illegal to not) for whoever we dislike the least. So i think we will behave

Gillard is a ruthless opportunist with no moral compass, Abbot has a moral compass, but not a clue about navigating by it... our greens are Brown...and pink

I sooooo want to go sailing

Re: Living Aboard in NSW: The Fast Track to Being an Outlaw ?

I agree that our pollies are not the best.
But we here in Oz are still doing better than most of the rest of the world.

Australia is paradise in more ways than one. Our climate, landscape, employment levels, safe banks and economy is the envy of the world.
Free education, free medical, the dole and other pensions as a safety net.
Clean water. Free beaches. Our harbours and waterways and nearly all foreshores are for the use and benefit of all not just the rich.

And whilst it is illegal to live aboard. We don't have our harbours clogged with thousands of people living on boats and dumping their waste into the water.

If something goes wrong or a disaster e.g. floods, bushfires, cyclones. We all pitch in to help and get it sorted.

Equality. If a pollie shouts "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM" They are the ones who are vilified. As they should be.

We have a beautiful, safe and friendly place to live.
Where, in reality, we are only limited by our own ambition and capability.
And if it all falls over we take care of the people who need a hand.

Yes, yes I know we all want everything better. But we really do have it pretty good.

And yes you can stay at CYC for $35 a night, with use of all facilities. I did it recently. Try and get an inner city hotel for that price. The view, food and showers are fabulous.

Re: Living Aboard in NSW: The Fast Track to Being an Outlaw ?

For what it is worth, my dealings with the water police here in Tassie have been all positive. Like any profession, there are bound to be a few "bad apples", but don't let them give the bulk of the good ones a bad name. From my experience, there are a lot of worse places, overseas, both for over-zealous cops and for corrupt cops. Count your blessings

I'd also suggest that this isn't really the place to discuss the merits of particular politicians and your perceptions of them and the parties that they represent.
