Hi all.

One small step.

The Federal Government has announced it is scrapping entry fees for Kakadu National Park.

Prime Minister John Howard has made the announcement at a morning tea for CLP members in Darwin's northern suburbs.

Mr Howard told the 500 party faithful the charges would be abolished no later than January 2005.

He has guaranteed traditional owners will not see a reduction in their revenue as a result of the decision.

Have a good day

3 weeks ago $3000 for having a baby(except for the small print - better be married). last week it was residency for refugees (except for the small print which means they get stuff all). this week it's no fees in kakadu (except for the small print....). must be an election - lower than a snakes belly these bastards. rgds
Slow down and relax......
