Just read this article, and thought it may be relevant to any of you folk planning to travel through the area in the coming days. Might be a good time to avoid the region.

If you feel the need to give the lead protestor a call try Nectaria Calan: 0432 388 665 I am sure she would like to explain why she enjoys ruining S.A.

Yair, we can't have anyone digging up gold and making a quid, creating a small city in the desert, creating jobs for Australians, building schools and so on - its just not right!
What would happen if we let anyone get away with working and paying taxes to support everyone else who doesn't work!?!

Now let's all be fair about this, it's not a protest these people (if you have a good look at them) are only going up there to register for jobs when the Olympic Dam expansions start. HA HA !!

I would say they are one of these groups that have a philosophical objection to uranium mining because in their mind, uranium mining equals WW3, Chernobyl, etcetera...these sorts of people spend the year traveling the country protesting about all sorts of things...I'd like to know how they can afford that sort of lifestyle...

little known fact is these people are all paid to be there by Dick Smith (that's why they can afford fuel to get there and buy food). I use to work in Roxby so know this.
They are feral. I had one throw eggs at my car going to work whilst another employee had to stop as they put their own young child in front of his car so he couldn't move. Mother of the year!

Bahahahahahaah, "llittle known fact is these people are all paid to be there by Dick Smith (that's why they can afford fuel to get there and buy food). I use to work in Roxby so know this".

Fact of the year. Classic local rumour at it's best.

What possible interest would someone like Dick Smith have in supporting these wankers?

Apparently Dick has supported Anti- Uranium Groups financially. Still hardly paying them to be there. I'd be more concerned that these protestors were on welfare. I'm sure some of them are our neighbours and work colleagues and not all ferals.

I think you are totally wrong in saying Dick Smith would be financing these ??? what ever.Sorry I know Dick, he would not be wasting his money like you have suggested.

Then I and the media are wrong. I didn't suggest he was wasting his money. Can you ask him so we'll all know the truth. I was much more complimentary about if he may have supported this cause than others above. Fair suck of the Sav. I'm not having a go at Dick. I said "apparently". He can do whatever he likes. Just adding what I think I know about it. Chill out man.
If you'd bother to read all of this post properly your reply might make some sense.

Let me know what Dick says.

I would not waste my time contacting Dick over some Yobbos he would not support.
Your saying "apparently". I assume you are guessing !!
"Chill out man". My temp is ok, yours seems to be approaching the boil !!

Let me guess Gossy - you've left Roxby and taken up a career as a manure farmer.

:) In respect to Fred G I haven't got involved with this again. His question has been hijacked (and to be honest I haven't helped either) but comments like "Bazooka's" is unproductive and a waste of every one's time on this forum. A classic example of typing in frustration and pressing "submit" without sitting back and thinking about it first.
This is a 4wd forum and personal abuse only belongs in school yards for kids.

You thought it appropriate to slur the good name of Dick Smith based on nothing more than juvenile rumour. Your comment got the responses it deserved.
