Democracy in Action

The Editor, Whether you respect The Beagle or refer to it as The Bugle , The Rag or some other derogatory phrase it is democracy in action. It is filling a conspicuous gap presented by the print media. Kerry OBrien (ABC). in his recent book states. “Two notable philosophers, Edmund Burke and Thomas Jefferson , in different times and different places expressed the same sentiment on the order of importance of the parliament and the press. Both nominated the primacy of the press”. Perhaps our Councillors need a reminder. Long live The Beagle. Owen Cartledge


COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available unless the author is known to the editor by way of a verified email address or by association.

Others who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a  shame to see your comment deleted)

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name or Nom de plume for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
