GREEN BANS AND OUR CURRENT PRIME MINISTER
Some people believe that the Green Bans are dead and buried, but alas for the greedy, they are back with a vengeance and our Prime Minister has caught up with both of the main ones.
The first Green Ban was that of Thompson Square at Windsor, where the Liberals wish to destroy a bridge built by a firm which had Mr Turnbull’s ancestor as one of its partners. This Green Ban has been in place before the last NSW State elections.
The newest Green Ban has been of course in our Prime Minister’s electorate of Wentworth called the Bondi Pavilion at Bondi Beach.
The controversy over the destruction of trees at Centennial Park recently is only because the BLF saved Centennial Park from developers.
Let us hope that neither the next Turnbull Federal Government will not allocate Federal monies; nor tax concessions; nor the like mechanisms to destroy either this historic bridge at Windsor nor the Bondi Pavilion. Nor I hope will a future Labor Government, but it is unlikely this will occur on July 2 2016.
Bill Shorten will probably lose his seat to the Greens, especially since he came out in favour of Federal Funding for destroying inner city Sydney by the Westconnex, but supported the Victorian Labor’s and Greens’ campaign at stopping the Melbourne Zoo to Clifton Hill Freeway.
This contract was signed during the care taker period by the former Victorian Liberal Government. The current Labor Victoria Government should have fought this breach of the care taker convention but instead it paid over a billion dollars for this freeway not to be built.
My late grandfather often took pictures of the Bondi Pavilion to send to relatives in England and Wales. Just as Melbourne’s Green trams are an icon of
Melbourne, the Bondi Pavilion is an icon of Bondi Beach.
Tom Tyrer, a Victorian foundation member of the Australian Democrats, helped the BLF to save the Melbourne Markets.
If people wish to vote for the Australian Democrats, they can vote for our Victorian Team.
Bye for now
