Sharon, pictured above was forcibly extricated from her domicile because she changed a lock on her  front screen door,

for her security requirements, some time ago now, and the department of housing place her in elouera house Shellharbour for 2 weeks ,  How much did that cost the community?

What law did she break ?

was it a case of an easy mark to relieve the taxpayer of some monies for  time ?

Homeless lives in hospital

A homeless man has been given a permanent hospital pass that costs $1000 a day at taxpayers’ expense.
Darcy Bux has been living in a private room in a public hospital for the past 250 days, all of which is paid by taxpayers.

Mr Bux is one of many Australians stranded in acute hospitals beds because the health authorities have no other places for them.

He says he feels guilty living in the hospital when there isn’t enough beds for those who really need it.

    Wiki answers: The energy stored in coal (and indeed all fossil fuels) is ancient sunlight. This is how it works:-

    As you know plants need CO2 form the air and sunlight and water to undergo the biochemical process called ‘photosynthesis’.

    Photosynthesis converts the CO2, and Water into sugars which are then used by the plant to make wood and oxygen – the plant grows.

    You will all be familiar with the fact that wood will burn using the oxygen in the air to produce heat, water and CO2. The heat given off is the sunlight energy that the plant trapped and stored as it ‘photosynthesised’. Plants therefore affectively trap and store sunlight as chemical energy.

    If many plants form a layer and this layer gets covered with soil and buried, the plants turn into fossils and if there are enough of them they form a layer of biological matter. Time and heat in the earth turns this biological matter into coal (and oil and gas).

    The coal, oil or gas will burn in air to produce heat, water and CO2. The heat is the sunlight that the plants trapped when they were living all those millions of years ago – fossil sunlight!

      PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd racked up a massive $29,676 phone bill in just six months as a backbencher – dwarfing every Government minister as he worked the phones.
      And Foreign Minister Bob Carr spent an amazing $721,576 on foreign travel, in what may be a record spend for any Australian MP over a six-month period.
      Mr Rudd, whose globetrotting habits earned him the tag “Kevin 747”, also spent $27,000 on a “study” tour to Switzerland, Canada and the US in July 2012. The then backbencher was also able to use his “celebrity” status to organise meetings with United Nations’ Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and other world leaders.
      Opposition Leader Tony Abbott also rung up a hefty phone bill – of $33,523 – for the six months to December 31 2012, as federal MPs spent more than $5 million on travel and office expenses.
      The latest report on parliamentary entitlements – released yesterday – show Mr Rudd had the third highest phone bill of all 226 federal MPs, behind retiring Liberal MP Barry Haase and Mr Abbott.
