For his June 10 article, Paddy talked to David Leyonhjelm, Liberal Democrat Senator-elect for NSW, about his stated determination to secure tenure at Malabar Headland for the NSW Rifle Association.

Paddy recorded video interviews with a number of people and the article includes a link to an edited video (6 mins 41 secs) of these interviews. The video is well worth watching for his interviews with:

  • Peter Garrett, former Federal MP for Kingsford-Smith
  • John Fitzgerald, the President of the NSW Rifle Association
  • Donna Wright from the South East Equestrian Association
  • Don Kerr, founding member of and spokesperson for Friends of Malabar Headland and bush regeneration team leader
  • Donna Negus, a competitive shooter who has been training and competing at the Headland for many years
  • local residents
