Hello Jim,

Not just a propaganda battle, if you really want to spoil your day, simply 
google NSW Game Council and look all through their website - it'll give you the 
horrors! Even the Common Bronzewing will no longer be protected. And several 
species of deer are to be protected to make sure these goons have something to 
shoot at. You have got to be kidding.

The really scary bit is that the NSW Game Council is a Statutory Authority 
supported by (probably funded by) the NSW Government.

If Barry O'Farrell wants to save more money, maybe he could take a look at the 
Game Council. I wonder if it has suffered the same efficiency measures (being 
very polite here) that have been applied to NSW National Parks and Wildlife 
Service. I heard that what rangers are left are threatening to go on strike - 
good luck, they'll need it.

I've always felt that our national parks in Australia would only be in danger 
after we have absorbed another 100 million immigrants but it seems we are quite 
capable of achieving that right now.

Happy New Year
