    Did you see that some rural airports may have to close down because the federal government is insisting on scanners and other gear, but refusing to pay for them and making broke local councils foot the bill?

    The terrorists won on November 11

    Gutless society should have said

    “This is **** - we don’t condone
    The death of a few thousand people for the means of a minority”

    Instead - the “developed” world pretended that a few thousand deaths equates to the end of all freedom....

    When a bully fronts up and flicks your vegemite sandwich into the dirt do you run and tell the teacher or line up a 3:05 show down?

    The problem is a lack of understanding of a risk and threat assessment process. Because that is fundamentally misunderstood, rather than guidelines and best practice, we get prescriptive and mandatory blanket rules. There is no allowance for critical thought.

    This results in the "security theatre" we often see in airports whereby I can't take a screwdriver in my carry-on, but can carry an insertion thermometer with a razor sharp point.

    It also results in the lunacy in the linked article because nobody has the balls (or nouse) to sit with the authorities and actually do a proper risk and threat assessment on the parade and process. Instead you get "Here's the book with the list of things you must do. Do them and we'll let you run the parade".

    If the risk is real and nobody is willing to sign off on the residual risk, then by all means implement mitigation. When it comes to mitigation there are many ways to divest the feline of its pelt. It's not just "bollards and police cars".

    (In my very best Eric Idle voice) Oooooo it makes me mad.

    I would've thought that they could use the orange, water filled traffic bollards - why are they talking about putting in place concrete bollards?

    BTW, my kids were on Bourke Street when that idiot decided to drive down the footpath, and he ended up just outside my building, so don't think that it's that far-fetched, and it doesn't have to be ISIS.

    Still very expensive to deploy water barriers, have them filled and emptied. Similar cost for a short term job. Probably needs doing after hours too, in and out quickly - concrete is easier, and they probably only need to cover areas where vehicles can enter from side streets, etc so one or two bits of concrete per area would probably cover it - expensive from whichever angle unfortunately.
