@fmcomment support for rural businesses that are struggling to survive. More rural pubs will close without a leg up. It's not about profit for the business, it's the community that the business is at the heart of that deserves support.
@Ceybriar My entire point is that the minister and the departments concerned need to work to negate those issues. Communities resort to legally dubious solutions when they are given no support. The "one drink" idiots need to get off the stage and let the sensible people get to work.
RT @HeaneyDaily: Anything can happen, the tallest towers Be overturned, those in high places daunted, Those overlooked regarded.
@Ceybriar if that's the cost to run their business legally then that's just how it is. A judge would laugh them out of court if there was an accident. The Department of Rural and Community Development should provide grant aid to such businesses.
@Connie_2017 @SeanDefoe you say that like it's a bad thing! I don't care how late he does it. His opinion on the issue would not sway many people. Other politicians people respect will already have outlined their position.

What was your first job as a journalist?

From 2011 to 2013 I was TCRfm's only reporter as the station had no proper news output back then. I was still in secondary school.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Sadly, no. I might just buy one in a thrift shop someday as a conversation piece for my shelf!

How is social media changing news?

Speed of communication is social media's strength. It also provides ordinary people with a platform to share stories and comment.
