We all have our gripes with neighbours, but surely it doesn’t matter if they have a barbeque so long as they keep the flames under control.

Perth women Cilla Carden does not think so. She is taking her neighbours to court over it, saying the smell is so bad she cannot go out.

But the courts have kept throwing out her case because “Ms Carden’s demands were proven to be not reasonable and indeed were to the detriment of the other owners’ ability to enjoy their lots in a reasonable and acceptable manner”.

 

Is there as much sizzle on the ASX today?

Well, the ASX Small Ords is up 0.18 per cent to 2,844 points while the ASX 200 is up 0.10 per cent to 6,586 points. As economists predicted last week, Australia has its first current account surplus since 1975. But retail sales fell 0.1 per cent in July.

Going up

Big Star Energy (ASX:BNL) is up 17 per cent after an update on its helium project.
