Damn Dan Brown Started It With His Damn 'Da Vinci Code'!
Jesus didn't damn Mary...so why should Peter Beattie dam Mary?
Answer that one, Mr Beattie! I wish he'd get off his proverbial upon his return to Queensland, if he ever plans to return to Queensland, that is...and visit the good folk of the Mary Valley. He should see for himself the beauty of this most productive valley. There is no excuse he can devise to explain his most stupid idea since being in power. He can't fix Queensland Health so now he wants to stuff up the Mary Valley...people's lives, homes and livelihoods.
I guess, it could be seen as a ploy to get everyone's mind off the major problems in Queensland Health.
Well, I call your bluff, Mr Beattie...hop in your government car, part-funded by the good people of the Mary Valley, (before many will be forced to go on the dole if you go ahead with your diabolic plan) drive up the highway towards Noosa...you know Noosa, don't you? Sure you do...everyone knows of Noosa...well, instead of posing on Laguna Beach in your board shorts, head a bit further north...you will be amazed by what you see.
Remember, Gympie saved Queensland a few or more years ago....it's your turn to repay the favour. Save the Mary...don't dam the Mary!
