Blame fat cats

Not happy with the reduced price of milk to the farmers.

‘‘They’’ — the people no-one knows — are blaming consumers for buying $1 litre milk when it’s the big companies that reduced the price that’s paid to dairy farmers to protect their huge profits. They are getting away scot-free by blaming consumers.

When are we going to stop being manipulated by these thieves?

I’m all for the farmers but I for one will continue buying cheap milk.

Either way, I know the big companies win as they are the ones that produce Coles, Woolworths and their own brands so consumers only buying branded milk actually help the big companies make more money and the farmers will get zero.

Take a stand

People in power don’t always get it right, and so many times it could have been easier to contain things before they escalate out of hand. Herald Sun journalist Andrew Rule, along with the Herald and Weekly Times were recently ordered by Court of Appeal Justices to pay $250 000 in damages in a defamation case.

If an individual has suffered damages and/or loss it can be worthwhile taking a stand.

If you firmly believe that something is the right thing to do, then pursue it wholeheartedly.

It is important to stick to the facts, be able to back them up, stand your ground, forget the trivial bits that may be thrown at you along the way, don’t be swayed by unsubstantiated negative commentary, seek qualified professional advice and follow it.

“The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing”, and have faith in your approach.

Congratulations Raelene.
