Cannabis crop worth $22 million seized by police at remote property near Narrabri

ABC News 25 November 2022

Six people will face court today after almost $22 million worth of cannabis plants were seized near the north-west NSW town of Narrabri. 

Police said officers found almost 11,000 cannabis plants and a quantity of cannabis seeds when they raided a remote property on Killarney Gap Road at Rock Creek on Thursday at 3am.

Five men aged 28, 33, 35, 45 and 56 and a 41-year-old woman were arrested.

The six people were charged with knowingly taking part in cultivating large quantities of cannabis and were refused bail.

They will face Tamworth Local Court this morning.

The arrests follow extensive police inquiries that began in September with the formation of Strike Force Lyretrail.

More to come.

Mozzies are everywhere right now – including giant ones and those that make us sick. Here’s what you need to know

Published by The Conversation 18 November 2022

Like all insects, mosquitoes thrive in warmer weather. But what they really need is water. La Niña rainfall and flooding are providing the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, with numbers exploding in recent weeks.


People are also seeing giant mosquitoes, tiny mosquitoes, and species they haven’t noticed before. Some of these mosquitoes are around every season but their numbers are booming, thanks to the favourable conditions.

Australia has around 300 species of mosquito. So which do you need to look out for?

First, let’s go over some mozzie basics.

Everything you need to know about Labor’s first budget in 6 charts

Everything you need to know about Labor’s first budget in 6 charts

This Budget makes hard decisions for hard times.

Jim Chalmers’ first speech as treasurer outlines the enormity of the global economic situation – inflation, energy and supply chain issues, and a continuing war in Europe – and signposts that this is a budget that’s much more about what he’s taking away (or reallocating) than new announcements.

It’s not often we get two budgets in the one year, and this one is in stark contrast to the Coalition’s before the election.

On the positive side, the deficit is forecast to be just $36.9 billion this, compared to $78 billion predicted in March. A lot of this turnaround has to do with booming coal and iron ore export prices, but also the significant cuts Labor is making to some of the Coalition’s big promises in March.

While this is good news for a new government, the deficit will actually rise back to $49.6 billion by the end of the budget forecasts as the costs of things like the NDIS and servicing debt in an increasingly expensive global market increase.

The March budget very optimistically forecast that we’d see the end of runaway inflation effectively by the time of the election, but the government assumes the consumer price index will continue to rise to 7.75% by the of the year, and take another 18 months to cool down.

As part of this, Treasury is assuming a 20% increase in electricity bills by mid next-year, and a further 30% by July 2024. It also expects gas to increase by 20% over the next two years.

So while this budget continues to assume the wage price index will turnaround within the next four years, and slowly pass inflation, most of us are unlikely to see a massive reprieve from cost of living pressures any time soon.

The government is assuming GDP will continue to dip down over the next few years, hitting 1.5% by mid-2024, but trending up again by end of the forward estimates.

After more than a decade of low interest rates globally, interest rates are starting to bite Australians – and the Australian government.

The cost of servicing government debt interest payments is forecast to have a significant impact on the budget by the end of the decade, which means the government will likely have to factor this into how they spend for the duration of this term – or how they raise revenue.

And while payments are set to come down after the extreme costs of the COVID response, receipts are also likely to stay flat over the duration of the budget forecasts.

Many of the key spending announcements in this budget were promises Labor took to the election or have announced in the past week. The government is adding $9.7 billion in net spending over four years, but they’re simultaneously cutting significantly – so this is actually much less than it could be for the promises made.

And many of the costs from the March budget that the Coalition took to the May election are not yet spent – or legislated. The government expects to save $3.6 billion alone over the next four years by reducing the outsourcing of labour, advertising, travel and legal expenses.

The treasurer also signalled this budget was “the beginning of something new and responsible”, and this is the first time the government has included a wellbeing statement as part of the budget papers.

As a way of defining the problem and the targets, it included a table to show where Australia sat against other countries in the OECD.

While there’s no attempt to give an overall measure, Australia is at or better than the OECD average on 21 of 37 indicators – which means there’s still some room for improvement, but at least we’re measuring the problem.
