    I made my submission today to the DOE in their Preferred Format. What a poor format an Excel spreadsheet is in which to make reasoned arguments which may at some point be used to create or amend legislation that governs the state. Do Senior Council make submissions to a High Court in Excel? No they bloody well don’t. This is another Lame Game by Kelly and the Mandarins in the Civil and Public Service to try and control the debate. Pathetic.
