multioptioned Named and shamed then sacked works does it not?

Thank goodness. They aren't tough enough on bad behaviour by police.

Suspended with pay

Why would you include a photo of the Deputy Commissioner when your tweet only refers to the officer who spread the photos? This officer in the photo is not suspended though your whole tweet & image implies he is. Do you “journalists” / “social media producers” think?

If society was more accepting of gender expression the story would be the stalking charge, not the clothes and wig worn whilst doing it.

Hands off Cup carnival timeslot: Lloyd Williams' warning to AFLThe AFL has set a target of October 31 to finish its revamped season. It's the very same day when the Cup carnival is due to kick off with Victoria Derby Day. Have you not noticed that most people don't actually care? Night Grand Final Seriously not an issue. Plenty of us can manage to keep one eye/ear on the racing & one on the footy, been doing it for years. It's not as if crowds are a problem, won't be attendances at either. Racing authorities just need to be careful about timing of major races on the day.
