For Like minded people who like to see-
Anna Bligh should be tried for treason in my opinion. Ofcourse I'm biased. I own freehold land out west of Dalby in the middle of the Surat basin and have been sent letters from the Queensland Gas Company who talk about MY land as if its theirs. "We are considering placing gas infrastructure on your property." was in the first letter. "we may have to come onto your land to check any wells on it." was the last one.
It should be legal to shoot trespassers in this country. I wonder how big a methane explosion would rsult from setting fire to those 40,000 wells.
Wayne, your comments run very close to being against the terms of service for this public forum. You must not post comments with the intention of inciting the commission of unlawful acts.
Consider this public forum like a normal pub, with a twist. Everything you say gets repeated by the town crier, many times a day.
I can't get behind your eyeballs Wayne and determine your intent for posting the comments about the Labor government, trespassers and setting fires,
And I am loathe to delete this important discussion.
I ask you to consider your words, and help kick the tin along by talking to your mates in the city. Help them understand what is happening in the bush.
I don't want to shut this room in the pub, Wayne. You can do your bit to help keep this important discussion going.
I would encourage readers to look at the discussion in the PRA group here.
"Wayne, your comments run very close to being against the terms of service for this public forum."
Only close to. I said that it SHOULD be legal. An opinion. I've heard Bob Katter make more spirited threats than that regarding cutting candidates toes off. I only WONDERED what it would look like if a methane well was set alight.
I've heard people in Tara pub discussing the subject in more detail than that. People out west are frustrated and mad as hell. Frankly I wouldn't blame them if they took the law into their own hands at this point. You can only bully country folk for so long before you end up with a revolt on your hands.
Alan Jones got me a bit fired up. I apologise for getting a bit carried away. Talk of taking Anna Bligh's scalp brought back a lot of resentment. My bit of scrub out west is all I own and until it happens to you its hard to conceive of how infuriating it is to have mining companies try and steal your land. I'm still in limbo right now. Uncertain whether they will put gas infrastructure on my place or not. I was told on the 30th floor of the QGC building in George Street that they have no "immediate" plans. But that could change on a whim.
Alan Jones is very popular in the countryside. Popular all over the country in fact. This is another nail in Anna Blighs coffin(speaking figuratively). I'm just worried the die hard labor supporters could still get her over the line on the primary vote if the conservative vote suffers a three way split between Katter, TQP and the LNP.
I take an interest in what is happening in the bush. I became a member of this community when I became aware of Peter Spencer's case, and have met quite a few landowners which have been affected by the Vegetation Management Act. I also attended a recent meeting in Roma where I met farmers affected by Coal Seam Gas exploration and the natural conflict between the surface rights of the landowner and the mineral rights of the state.
Those mineral rights get everyone bent out of shape. If you own land then you should own what is under it all the way to the earths core in my book. Nowadays many land holders don't even have a right to the water on their property. Atleast the CSG industry is going to get a savage kick in the guts come March. I told them so in their head office in George street. Captain Bligh hasn't a hope of winning and all the other parties are jumping aboard the anti-csg bandwagon so the greedy land thieves will lose billions. The only thing that hurts them is profit loss. Suffer you corporate parasites.
I've noticed that Katter hasn't yet found a candidate for Warrego. There and up north is where his strongest electorate support lies. How does a person throw their hat in the ring as a candidate for TQP Ruth? I'm not sure I'd be much use as a polly but the LNP and Labour are dirty words out west right now. If you can't find anyone willing to stand there then you can put my name down if you like. Just so there is another option other than the two party race everyone in the darling downs is sick of.
Hi Bev. I'm old fashioned. In school I was the kid who bullied the bullies. I can't stand thugs who pick on smaller individuals or those of a lower social standing. Its cowardly and yet that seems to be how our society works. No different to the pecking order of chickens.
That said however, a person has a right to be left alone on their own property after working long years to buy it. A persons home is their castle. If someone invades our country we expect our military to kill them. Why shouldn't that right to defend property extend to individual citizens? Nowadays home invaders seem to have more rights than the terrified victims of their crimes. Elderly people are being taken to court for defending themselves against punks breaking into their homes to rob and possibly rape or murder them.
Now Anna Bligh is giving away peoples property to the biggest land thieves in the world. As far as I'm concerned the CSG mob are feral animals and I wish I could legally shoot them on sight.
