Eco cre­den­tials

COUN­CIL­LOR All­sop: It is a dis­grace that you would make such a dis­grace­ful out­burst of com­plete non­sense to­ward the mayor at last night’s meet­ing. You have proven yet again to have no knowl­edge of the wa­ter min­ing is­sues or the meet­ing re­ferred to and con­tinue to em­bar­rass your­self in front of such a large gallery and your fel­low coun­cil­lors. It is my opin­ion that you were elected to the po­si­tion of coun­cil­lor un­der false pre­tences, as your elec­tion plat­form was to pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment and sup­port eco-tourism in the Tweed. So far you have voted in favour of the en­vi­ron­men­tally de­struc­tive wa­ter-min­ing in­dus­try, in favour of de­vel­op­ment which di­rectly fur­ther en­dan­ger the coastal koalas, in favour of the de­struc­tive log­ging van­dal­ism in Limp­in­wood, the Gold Coast Air­port en­vi­ron­ment de­struc­tion, sup­port coastal high-rise de­vel­op­ment and the list goes on. For these rea­sons I de­mand that you apol­o­gise in writ­ing to Mayor Milne and im­me­di­ately re­sign from your po­si­tion as Tweed Shire Coun­cil­lor.
