Following on from my email this morning I have just read the front page of
the Daily Telegraph, published in Sydney. I quote - 


Premier Barry O'Farrell has also promised the Shooters (Party) and Christian
Democrats that he will investigate lifting their election funding and
promised he will consider allowing shooters to kill more   game birds on
private property.


Two things stand out from this statement. Firstly NSW obviously isn't as
financially stressed as Premier O'Farrell keeps having us believe, and
secondly it appears that we may soon have open seasons on ducks and  quail,
and possibly also pigeons and even snipe. When I was working for CSIRO we
had shooting organisations ask if it would be possible to breed and release
pheasants and Chukar Partridge for "hunting purposes ONLY on private land";
we always said no. The people asking were always very careful never to put
anything in writing, it was always verbal via the phone.


As I said in my original email you will not stop the loony shooters. Premier
O'Farrell has really opened a gigantic can of worms. If some innocent person
is killed or injured by his actions will he take full responsibility - I
doubt it? The whole things smells of political bribery.
