The simpler things in life

SIR, – They say the only things certain in life are death and taxes.

Allow me to add a third.

I propose that here in Tumut we can say with confidence that the three certainties of life are death, taxes and a long-winded, eye rolling educing, half page blab-fest attack or retort letter to the editor from a councillor!

It’s like watching a never-ending rally between two baseliners at the French open.

I’ve yet to talk to anyone who doesn’t snigger at these largely self-indulgent ‘epics’.

Lord knows that’s the perception I’m getting from the common man.

I can only imagine how we are viewed by other councils?

Can we please just stick to stories on huts, bake sales and charity balls?

Life just seemed better that way.

Yours etc.,

Greg Kabar
