Whether Grant Marine Park in Cottesloe is the best location for a skate park in the Town of Cottesloe, or whether there might be somewhere else better suited, I will leave the locals to thrash out.
These are anxious, worrying times. We don’t trust Donald Trump, but we still put great value on the US security alliance. And our attitudes towards China have shifted significantly.
