Trying to get between Civic and Woden this afternoon at about 4.00pm I rounded Vernon circuit heading south only to be directed back north again by the boys in blue. Nothing on the ABC news website to indicate why. Any ideas?

my boss almost cleaned them up when the stepped out onto the road in front of him. Maybe their protest would have gained more coverage if he had mowed them down…..

would have separated the wheat from the chaff, certainly.

In other news, writing the title of your post in ALL CAPS doesn’t make it seem any more important.

Commonwealth Ave and Kings Ave are real choke points in Canberra traffic – maybe it is time for a new bridge??

There seemed to be nothing in the media about this until after it happened. How did hundreds of angry farmers manage to arrange a protest that seemingly no one else knew about?

They protested on the lawns outside Parliament House, then decided to come inside the Senate Gallery to protest some more. A few were escorted out, anlong with some heckling towards the Liberals, but that was about it.

I heard a Krispy Kreme van crashed…pretty much every cop in town was there.

Remember boys…more than four doughnuts is considered binging!
