    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    When it came to colourful and controversial views, the long-time mayor of Port Augusta, Joy Baluch, set elite standards: 'I hate sport,' she said in 2008: I've never had time for it, been too busy looking after a family, you know, surviving. It's a waste of time. I hate football and tennis and golf...and if ever the Asians are going to come in it's going to be on grand final day... And they'll just take over peacefully.
