The NT becomes the third state or territory to approve fracking in Australia, after QLD and SA, with moratoriums currently in place in Victoria, Tasmania and WA.

Look on the side of the medals there should be a number, then contact the RSL they should be able to track down the owner that way.

A lady was looking yesterday for some lost medals, they may be the ones she lost yesterday there was a post on facey about it...

I saw a post about a woman lost some at Redland bay memorial she reported it to RSL Cleavland

Most medals usually have regt number, rank and name engraved on the bottom of the actual medal, unless they are replicas...

Should have service number engraved around the outside of the medals if the are the originals

Someone on the Oxley community FB page was trying to find some lost medals.

Oh well the company will close down the site and take it somewhere else I bet because they will not be held to ransom

Why on earth would XXXX close? My God, they are an icon! Such a popular beer! What the Frk else will our country lose?? This has got to be a joke, right?

Does anyone work anymore??? We were farmers and worked from dawn to dark...every day bar Sunday.

Feeling for these workers & there families, sadly seems so many big Aussie companies & business's are going under..the last few years.

we may not like this Government but heaven help us if Bill shorten ever gets to be pm

just cut all ministers salary by 10% can pay off everything

must be vote time! These grubs can't lie straight in bed!!!

Jarod..it's Labor not labour, that's what your mum went through when giving birth to you..

lol stop throwing the taxpayers money away to other countries and the imported country shoppers

NDIS being outsourced to Serco is a FAIL

Fishing for votes

Hey from the States!

Are you talking about a new budget? So last years done nothing? Who’s in charge of the budget now? Why discussing about labour when they are not in power, r are they?

You want to pay Vietnamese $130 to bring the unskilled here to work at abottriors?!

Do you pay tax on revenue or profit? Revenue is a problem if you spend more tax than profit.

Who ever is in power just needs to know how to benefit most to everyone. We just needs to know how to pay tax.

Keeping the job is hard, my employers thought I was not enjoying it.

If labour gets in next election, this talk is a waste of time?

Government needs a restructure.

Pay them more money and cut the perks

here we go looking for voters...get out creep!

Where are the jobs?

T a x Thievery and extortion

What’s on the menu?

U r a deadhead

Why is he still speaking

Jean, oh, thanks.

Hire more Australians or keep the profits for themselves. Hmmm. Thinking thinking....

Yes, 'paying your respects' by using the day as an opportunity to raise revenue with your sneaky as Parking Inspectors. We attended the Evening Service at 5pm at the Cenotaph at which time the City was largely empty, thought we had parked legally (it's impossible to interpret the multiple signs sitting one above the other each with it's own set of rules) and copped a $220 fine. Our car was parked for the duration of the half hour service and approximately 10 minutes either side, so say 50 minutes all up. What a disgrace you are on our National Day of Remembrance. Hitting families who are paying their respects where it hurts the most.

I can't wait for that massive water fountain to be completed. I just wish they allowed more pedestrian space in front of it for disabled people and those who are waiting for busses. Also for pedestrians walking by. I am saying this because I think that the commuters are just as important as the nice fountain. Just a little oversight by council that can always get fixed later...I think.

My take on the remembrance of those brave soldiers during today's Anzac March in Sydney #wewillrememberthem #lestweforget

Lest we forget

There are many things to brag about with Potts Point. It is a real village and the residents mostly go out of their way to make it work. Its heritage is treasured and, of course, it can boast some of Sydney's most interesting eateries and small bars. There's lots of negatives too and many residents feel the CoS has abandoned the area because of a few vocal and legal ratbags. Our main concern is Macleay street which has been sorely neglected when one compares with revitalisation programs in Redfern, Surrey Hills and other local areas. The foot paving is a disgrace and , frankly, dangerous, especially for older residents who continually fall on the very uneven and extremely ugly continually patched and sprayed (by utilities) bitumen (which would be better suited as a tarmac). It is time for this much-loved and much-used street to be given a tile slab finish (see Double Bay, Mosman or a hundred other main street paving) and better street refuse bins and landscaping (there's currently half a dozen different tree surrounds, all dog-ugly). We could also do with less signage and better street cleansing. Apart from all that... we love the place.

Viva Hair on Crick Ave next to Joe the Juicer....BEST hairdressers in Potts Point! Andy is FABULOUS!!!...I have naturally curly hair and am very particular about my colour...Andy goes above and beyond in service to help me achieve the look I love!!!!...VIVA TO VIVA!!!!

Jangling Jacks is a great little bar on Victoria St. Very friendly knowledgeable staff, great drinks and an excellent atmosphere. Plus the set up inside is beautiful. Worth a look if you haven’t been 👍

Will you also cover Woolloomooloo in #sydneylocal?

My favourite thing about potts point is that it’s so quiet and boring Saturday nights you can actually hear your own thoughts saying “why on earth is it so expensive to live here? 🤔”

Saturday mornings are the best. Catch a morning yoga class at Body Mind Life , then head to the markets for breakfast - your pick. Youre spoiled for choice on variety from Jimmy Liks, to a korean breakfast burrito or an açai bowl.

Lovely fountain - but I hate the fact that the florist at the Saturday market rinses his tubs in it and leaves all sorts of junk in it!

I definitely think that Silly Tart Kitchen deserves a mention. Such a lovely place for coffee/brunch in the green patio. The Roosevelt is also amazing for a cocktail or three to start off your night, or to show off on a first date.

Rosé Royale in Potts Point!! Best place for an after work drink or a lazy weekend 🙌🏻🍷 www.roseroyalesydney.com.au/

My favourites are gone - they stood no chance against the lockout laws

Best Thai food EVER is Pad Thai, Roslyn street - actual fresh vegetables and not drowning in palm oil sauce. Friendly staff, no frills, and outstanding value for money.

This place to find in Maclay street next to king cross

Lil Darlin on Victoria street. Tell John Apples that Nat sent you - the best cocktails and lazy crazy cool atmosphere. You'll love it 🤗

My favourite fountain -

Very good coffee and amazing sandwiches in 'Jeremy and sons' near by this fountain. Also a lot of good restaurants in the area such as Fratelli Paradiso, Cho Cho san and Billy Kwong :)

LEO on Roslyn street - AMAZING club sandwiches and coffee 🙏

"Junny's coffee" is the hole in the wall coffee shop at the entrance to the train station on Darlinghurst Rd. No sign. Fast and friendly service. GOOD COFFEE ❤❤

Llankelly Lane is such a gem, day and night has all you’d ever need!

I love the nightlife...oh, wait...

Farmhouse restaurant- best in Sydney for sure

Jangling Jacks!!

Cristina Forlani yes you are 👌👌👌

lovely Sydney <3 <3

Harris Farm - love it.

Jonathan Leeming I feel like you'd have a lot!
