Make Up Your Mind, Peter Beattie....This Is Not a Joke!
I do try to be happy, really I do! But "Me and My Shadow...Peter Beattie & Anna Bligh Duo" are pushing their limits with me at the moment! What a pair...better than Fred and Ginger, those two are! Or should I say Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis?
What on earth do they think they are doing? Fooling around with the lives of people in the proposed Traveston Dam area is not at all funny, Peter Beattie! It's a travesty and a tragedy what you are causing these people to go through...all you can do is laugh! How I'd love to see the government try to take your home off you! I bet that would take the smile off your face!
First, these Mary Valley folk have had to go through all the heartache of selling their properties...their livelihoods...to the State Government...only to be told a few weeks or couple of months later that the government no longer requires their properties and will SELL the properties back to them! If I was in their shoes, I think I'd tell Beattie to shove it "where the sun don't shine!"
What a bungle! Another family was advised today that they DON'T have to sell! What on earth is going on, Peter Beattie? Oh! Yes...of course, I forgot...you've got to confer with Anna Bligh first! How silly of me!
Anna Bligh, Beattie's deputy premier, is planning to go to the Gympie area tomorrow. She had better put on her battle jacket! I don't believe that her reception is going to be very welcoming...and you certainly can't blame the people of Gympie and those who are being affected by the proposed Traveston Dam!
Beattie had the arrogance and audacity to make a joke about the dam in parliament yesterday! I wish someone would wipe that stupid smile off his silly face! We had our chance back in September and failed! I grabbed the chance with both hands!
Yes...this issue is making me very angry! And I didn't want to feel this way today!
