A Carlisle family is devastated after losing a David and Goliath fight to keep its local business. The state's administrative tribunal has decided their supermarket should be bowled over to make way for a Hungry Jacks and a 7-Eleven. ...


Comment on Facebook

A servo across the servo (BP). I guessed they didnt see it. Would the first instance I reckon. Never have I ever seen two servos next to each other.

7 eleven has cheap coffee ☕

How much did The state administration tribunal get from the developers to sell out the family business that sells groceries and fresh produce to put up fast food out let’s that make you fat.

Terrible allowing another fast food chain to set up business . Family have operated for years the big sharks taking over. All talk about healthy food options government allowing the counsel to be over ruled local communities have no say world wide.

Yeah cos perth definitely needs another hjs and petrol station...😑

This is so cruel for that family and the community. They are obviously good, hard working people. Let them be! :(

That’s very sad. Felt sorry for the owners & their workers. They worked hard for it and now they have to close down. I’m sure that there is a way to put both shops together in one area. They don’t need another HJ since there are already some HJs along Great Eastern Hwy.

That's all a crap, where do they want us to do late night shopping. That's so unfair

Remember it's on Orrong rd. Cindy Le

Neither of them are Australian buisness, who is on the committee to decide, any Australians?

Take it to the high court it’s only administrative tribunal

Great another 7/11 so they can not pay staff for working.

You can have a say at the next local body election. Get rid of the dead beat mutts who approved this and have an enquiry on whether they had an interest in it.

I'm sure BP would have something to say about another petrol station across the road

We in Minesota, USA, see the same kind of issues.

lets get the ateam

What is the actual story with 7 11 one service station closes bang a 7 11 opens across the road

Curruption to the core. SAT DAP and all these councils put money in each others pockets. This system needs to be accountable especially to the locals people. Its wrong.

Wow how exciting anothe HJs and a franchise who under pay their workers...

its pathetic honestly theres litrelly 1 down the road we dont need it

Y do we have to vote for government

unbelievable even the Mayor doesn`t want it

Desperate attempts to save a woman trapped in the wreck of an horrific crash have ended tragically on a notoriously dangerous stretch of road. Three other people were hurt when the bus and car smashed head-on in Piara Waters. ...


Comment on Facebook

We drove alone that stretch of road today it is very confusing...Goes from 2 lanes to 1 lane several times and there is so much vacant land. Why didn't they make it duel road all the way when they just up graded it...

Blame the road as usual, it's pretty simple really, stay on the correct side of the white line and no one gets hurt!

The road isn't dangerous, it's the idiots using it.

Tell your subtitle typists the difference between break and brake pls.

A Perth construction worker has been killed, trapped beneath a steel pipe while working on scaffolding 10 metres in the air. The 60-year-old man was uprgrading pipes at the Woodman Point Wasterwater Treatment plant when the horrible accident happened. ...

During a fatality in the work place there should be laws in place to stop Reporters jumping into a helicopter and distributing and broadcasting images of the site/Scene all over the web/TV’s for a story. Pretty disgusting.

Rip, condolences, I've been in situations like this and we're told to knuckle down and do the job or not get more work, the major companies and government don't gaf, work with our expertise till we fall off the perch, big difference between pen pushers and the Labor force, this kind of thing should never happen!

A Perth man is spending his 14th hour in a Bali cell, held by police over a custody tug of war that turned ugly. The father's accused of abducting his own 15-month-old son in a home invasion at his ex-partner's house. ...


Comment on Facebook

Fathers have rights too

Yes fathers have rights. Absolutely 100% for shared custody. However, I am sure, other mums, or dads for that matter, would have concerns if their ex has past schizophrenia, drugs and alcoholism issues which is in the man's own website which MAY have been the reason. Like someone said, their are two sides.

He has already lost many months! Easy for a stupid woman to say he pushed or hit me! Normal woman would think what's best for the child interest not her own!! She doesn't look right!

Fathers have rights too . Good on him . He should be set free . So many woman out there not all ...are out there using there kids as porns to destroy men and nothing gets done about it ..a desperate man will take desperate measures just to see his child when he shouldn't have to ..good luck mate . I feel your pain .

I understand he must've been desperate to see his son, but breaking into his ex's house and abducting his son in the middle of the night is not the way to do it... I can't even imaging how awful it would be waking up and finding out your child was gone.

She should let him see his son end of story. None of that wouldn't have happened if she did. Too many men are getting screwed over. And it makes them do things they don't want to do

You can’t blame the guy really all he wants is to do is see his son!!! My son was taken away from me 20 years ago & nobody batted an eye lid!!!

Mum's & Dad's need to stop arguing between themselves and holding a child/children from a parent. Each parent has the right to see their child.....just remember its the child/children who feel it now & later in life.

She doesnts look well at all... This poor man just wanted to see his son and he should have every right to. Im sick of seeing woman use their kids to get back at their ex's because things didnt work out between them! So many dads go through what this poor man is because woman like her think they have every right to not let the fathers have visitation rights and its usually done out of spite! Then scream/through hissy fits when they dont get $$ from the dads.

Fathers have rights too .... she’s just another control freak!

Instead of holding him n a prison! Why not make the mother give him some sort of rights to seeing his child. Wether it be supervised visits. Or a few hours a week!

And I bet the ex was doing all she could to stop the father seeing his child until he was desperate and then he gets in trouble. Kids are made by 2 people. When are people going to stop using kids as a tug of war game. Poor child.

Fathers should have just as much rights as the mother, she's wrong for keeping him away from his own son. Hope he gets of and starts to see his son.

Funny how Australian federal police couldn’t do the same situation opposing countries pffff Pathetic

If a woman did this she would be praised. Why does he not deserve to have his child?

It takes 2 to make a child. Stopping one parent from seeing their child is a low ball move. Children are not mothers property. Fathers shouldn't be stopped from seeing their children. Let the man see his kid.

Need to keep the Chanel's of communication open when separated and not fly off the rails in anger over the pain and loss, work it out not make it harder , get help it is out there for dad's who think there getting no we're . The child needs both parents to be happy for them to grow positively not broken . Please get help, never give up on family and do what's best for your child ,

I feel for the father, he is desperate to see his son. I think this mother needs to be reasonable and think of her part in all this and agree to access to the baby's father. It shouldn't be a battle or getting even. Children need both parents. In the end they will grow up with respect for each instead of resentment and guilt. I pray for peace between these parents and good luck.

fathers arnt second class citizen's

When are ppl going to wake I don't know these ppl or the circumstances but no doubt this is no doubt another story about a mother who thinks the dad is not going to be with his child or any part of his life ,if the mum is scared and doesn't want him on his own with the child organize something positive so everyone is happy ,to often mothers think the dads have no rights well they need to wake up and let the dads be in their kids life , kids don't need a lot they need love from both parents parents grow apart not the kids ,

If I hadn't seen my kids in ten months I would do the same thing. Let him out.

Why is the father always in the wrong? Many women claim to love their children,yet use them as pawns...that's not love!!!

So unfair that you will charge a father for kidnapping his own child? Only if he is harmful to the child then he should be kept at distance but not a man who is grieving to be a part of his childs life. So women make it really hard for men. There are alot of men who are dead beat dad's and don't care to be a part of their children's life but when you there is a man who wants to be there don't keep him away. We are supposed to be able to rise above our own hurt and pain and put our children's need first...lady do the right thing and find some common ground to allow this man the same right to his child as you have as a mother...very, very sad!

Jodie Hodgson explains what I was thinking, how it was unusual for Indo police to get involved as he is the dad.

Kids need a dad. Full stop

100% chance Slater will take a dive 🤣

To think up posts like this it must take 10% luck, 20% skill 15% concentrated power of will 5% pleasure 50% pain And a 100% reason to remember the name

Now you have to come up with one for the Reds v Chiefs tomorrow night

you forgot 60% chance of rain so increase your distance and have a little patients and slow down in the wet and have some protection or a rain coat. Just take an umbrella 😳😳😂😂😂

What about the actual weather!?

30% chance you parked in a tow away zone and come out after the game to ask "Where's my car"?

Cassie Jamie Stephanie Megan Richard 50% for my elite greyhound?!?!? I hate those Melbourne players!

100% chance that i’ll get a better view from the tv

Aaarrrggghh, the wonders of footy season hey people, if only I were still young enough to play, I spose I could always join a pub comp, you know 2nd division if its still called that, only problem with those comps though is they tend to do more blewing then actually playing footy and I take my footy very seriously when I play, are well, spose I'll just go without and age gracefully.....

Extensive storm damage, activate SES!

100% we brought the thunder.

I’m a Storm fan and man, that’s some heavy sledging 😂😂😂

Iron clad guaranteed that I’m staying dry in my own home and watching.

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!!!!

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.

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.

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? 🤔”

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!

"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 ❤❤

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

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 :)

Farmhouse restaurant- best in Sydney for sure

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

This place to find in Maclay street next to king cross

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

lovely Sydney <3 <3

Harris Farm - love it.

Planning on getting stuck into the Easter eggs? Here's a tip: their foil wrappers are 100% recyclable! But there's a trick to it - you need to collect enough to scrunch into the size of a tennis ball.

Want more recycling tips? Check out Garbage Guru:


Comment on Facebook

What a load of rubbish and money this ad is...we are all becoming aware that recycling in Sydney has been a failure because they can't cope with its disposal!

Ok so why are your garbage collectors dumping our garbage and recycling bins in the same truck then? 🤪

Hi, Do you do correspondence by email? Rather than sending my bills to the wrong address for a year and a half (which I already tried to change) and passing it on to a debt collector? I’ve also previously been sent a $7000 bill for not attending jury duty (which I would have been happy to attend) at a 3 year old address. Thanks

Did you know that dog collars can be tightened Clover? Any more shit wasting ads like this and we might have to tighten couple of notches

never mind the chocolate, I want the tiny bin!!!

Is that the case with all foil?

What ?? So they can just dump it into land fill like most of the"recycling" ?? Recycling in Australia is too expensive to be viable !!

City of Sydney is below 3rd world when it comes to waste management. Their sidewalk bins is a prime example.

Even it has flaws we still have to try to do it and do our best in our end. Not give up.

Easter egg foil the size of a tennis ball, not a problem.

Only problem is no garbage truck would see a bin so tiny.

Eleni Knapp thought you would appreciate

Ha Ha just eaten half of one that looked like that one

In spite of the “ no plastic bags” in the recycling bins people in our development still put them in. Hard to fix stupidity I agree.

Christopher Samuel Pickett see, this is the reason I need to eat so many easter eggs because I want to recycle so I need to have so many to make the foil as big as a tennis ball

Leah Brown I had no idea!

Great excuse to eat more.

We don't have any mini bins for recycling 🤔

Recycling? Really? Sydney you know what does it mean? U have the same bin for paper, glass and metal! That recycling?

Jesse Aaron Simon David - very important information!

Families and suburbs, eat a lot of chocolate and band together!

Challenge accepted Kate Brownell, needs to be the size of a tennis ball 🎾

What s load of shit it will end up in land fill

Unwrap the bunny and recycle!

i know you know this but good vid Lottie Dalziel
