The dam is­sue

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS YOUR SAY -

WE hear now from Tim Ni­cholls that he’s go­ing to get busy, once he’s in the Premier’s chair, and build dams ga­lore, start­ing in the deep north. Well, what an as­pi­ra­tion.

If he thinks he can de­liver on that prom­ise he bet­ter do some leg­is­la­tion re­peal­ing first. There is the pesky en­vi­ron­men­tal laws that sti­fle any new dams be­ing built in a hurry. Down here in Queens­land’s deep south we have been wait­ing for near on 40 years and many mil­lions of dol­lars spent and not a sod turned in the Emu Swamp Dam saga. Tim, will it ever get built if you be­come Premier?

Oh, good­ness me, we wait on tippy toes each day to hear some new and won­der­ful prom­ises from those who would lead Queens­land into a “ro­bust and fan­ci­ful” fu­ture. They must all think we are dum­mies. Well then again... — Jay Nauss
