Rockhampton Ring Road saga proves it’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease - Courier Mail

When Roman legions marched into battle they were organised into three lines. The first two lines were young or inexperienced, and the third contained veterans that would support their fellow troops if needed. The third rank was known as the "subsidiarii", the Latin word for support.

From this word comes the governing principle of subsidiarity, which means that locals should decide what happens in their communities, while still receiving support from higher levels of government.
