I'm keen to start negotiations with Andrew and Sharon next door about buying a wedge of their land. They have heaps and its just a paddock really, wth a bit of fennel infestation near our fence. I'm sure there is something in the Fennel Act (1924) about neighbours being allowed to seize unloved bits of backyard. Also there have been recent acts of aggression by their border troops (cat) against our homeland defence corps (cats). In a John Howard-like spirit of pre-emption I think we would be justified in establishing a buffer zone.
