There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

Bloody hell, They were Sisters. :(

"Her 17-year-old sister was arrested and taken to Belmont Police Station shortly after the incident.

A crime scene was established and local detectives spent the night investigating.

The teenage girl has since been charged with murder and refused bail to appear at a children's court today."

Bonza flights cancelled as aircraft repossessed
A showdown is looming over who has the rights to fly planes registered under discount airline Bonza after its fleet was repossessed and flights across the country were cancelled, leaving passengers stranded.
Nicole Morris came off a flight from Adelaide into Melbourne’s Tullamarine on Tuesday morning to board a connecting trip to Rockhampton in Queensland when airport staff announced to Bonza passengers that all services had been cancelled.

The sooner the woke mob and lefty dogooders acept the fact that that 12-16yr olds know right from wrong and react accordingly, the better off society is without them!  >:D

Not good news..

A caravan manufacturing company has collapsed with debts of more than $1 million.

On Tuesday, Victorian-based Highline Caravans Pty Ltd went into voluntary liquidation.

The Melbourne company designed and built custom caravans for customers.

Highline Caravans has been a registered business for 11 years, since 2013, and offered 13 different models to customers including an electric vehicle.

Altan Djenab, from insolvency firm Wild Apricot, is the appointed liquidator. He has been contacted for comment.

Documents he submitted to the corporate regulator, ASIC, shows that the business has left behind some hefty debts in the wake of its demise.

Following a successful trial in Ballarat, digital driver licenses are now available in the my VicRoads app to all Victorian full license holders. The digital license will be available to learner drivers and p-platers by 2025.
