We have your Doctor Mosley in our custody. He will be returned unharmed if our terms are met.

Place one million Australian dollars into a plain brown paper bag and leave it under the Legends Stand at the most holy Ikon Park… Elliott be praised.

Our organisation will use this money to further our cause by repairing the shoulder of a small Italian forward, envisaged as a vital cog in our premier resistance movement.

Despite opinions to the contrary, we are not a terrorist organisation. Do not try to find us as we have people in high places watching out for our interests… Disciple Fitzpatrick be praised.

P.S.
Make sure the brown paper bag is made by Visy.

Many Australian journalists would have been members of the Group, including those suppressed by their editors or owners or the State. There has been a significant recent increase in reporter casualties.
Those involved in Human Rights were also connected to the Association.
Early tributes came from the French President, Stella Assange and the Council of Europe.

His family’s farm butted on to one of the paddocks an Uncle of mine had up there. Our family long sold off the farmland up there but believe Hall’s rellies still have some of their original land.

We also lost Jennifer Cashmore today, former pollie and instrumental in bringing the State bank fiasco into light. She is also the mother of our current Governor

That explains why Frances got such a smooth ride in Senate Estimates ( although she was respected by both sides).

He was heartbreakingly so close to survival.
