Isn't either drilling it, or cutting it off, going to be one hell of an effort ???

Normally, a drill bit into the key slot will do it. I've done it on a few padlocks and never had an issue. As with most things, start small Ø and work up in size.

CTL,  is your mission in life to criticise posts by every member here? Certainly seems that way. I dont profess to know everything about everything. Evidently you do judging by your superior attitude towards everyone else here. This is a long established environment for people who share a love of camping in our great country. Its not a platform for you to belittle other's opinions and attempt to demonstrate that you have  more knowledge. I barely log on these days, and people like you are the exact reason. I hope you enjoy myswag. There wont be many members left to criticise soon.

Well said Nigel. He's an obnoxious indivual alright and has upset a lot of members on here, some who have left permanently. He's only been  a member for less than a year and appears to have a superior attitude problem. MySwag has always been a fun and friendly forum  and we don't need his crap.

If you are just sharing your opinion, I wouldn't expect a reply, if you pose it as a question then you are more likely to get a reply, BUT in terms of policy in regards to health workers uniforms, I wouldn't expect the local MP to know off the top of his head, and the people he would normally go too for an answer might be a bit busy at the moment.

Always good to stop and smell the roses
yea that one brought a tear ... awesome story

Accompanying the Facebook post, the Queensland Ambulance Service wrote: "This photo tells a story we all need to hear right now.

"Stopping to smell the roses never had more meaning.

"As many of us look to our homes for safety and comfort at this time in our lives, take a moment to smell that rose in the garden you grew, look up at the sky and glance at that old tin roof that houses your family, your pets, your possessions, and admire the car in the garage.

"Let's take a moment and take the time to appreciate what we have, not what we have lost."

Use a piece of pipe over the lock end and lever it off.

Did end up seeing a few videos about this, looks pretty easy (too easy) so of I can't find the key I'll give it a go.

If you don’t have the balls to put those details on your correspondence, then don’t bother.  Nobody has time to deal with the trolls.  There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of stupid people out there with nothing better to do than to write to their local member.  The member’s office staff soon get to know who needs a considered response and who gets the generic reply.

If the correspondence warrants a considered response, beyond the knowledge of the local member, the letter is forwarded to the head of the responsible government department (who then forwards it down the line to the responsible section within that department) for a researched and factual response.  That section, or that section’s manager, drafts a response of behalf of the member and it is forwarded back up the chain to the member receiving the correspondence.  The member then responds to the question by letter.  Takes some time.

If the member is in opposition, then the process is even longer.  The opposition member asks the question of his/her counterpart, either by a question on notice or a question without notice, normally the former, and the question then follows the part above.  An even longer process.
"There are a lot, and I mean a lot, of stupid people out there with nothing better to do than to write to their local member." Thats how it works.If you have an issue with something in your community then you contact your local member for advise or clarification.Thats what the local members are paid to do by us the taxpayer.Simple.
