Absolute legend

Thank you so much. Most of us know exactly what’s going on. Thankfully there’s someone like you to simplify it to the stupid folk that can’t see pass team Red or Blue.

Go punters

You speak like my brain is working

Djit Djit ,

Go you!

It’s so easy to be disallusioned and frustrated. That was me for years. And years. Then I found the community independents, and we are lucky enough to have an awesome one ourselves (thank you Kate Chaney). It’s so, so reasurring to see you young punters so wise and so stepping up. Very inspiring and makes me very hopeful for the future. You have helped me engage my teenagers, and some disengaged family. Keep up the good work! Into the arena we go. 😊
