Be­wil­der­ing rea­son

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS OPINION -

MANY of us over the years have read some crazy things in news­pa­pers, some that were to­tally off the planet, es­pe­cially out­ra­geous de­mands from tree-hug­gers who preach their green gospel.

But first prize for year 2018 goes to the story in the Gold Coast news­pa­per ti­tled “Mayor’s batty think­ing” re­gard­ing gree­nie Tweed Mayor Katie Milne’s mind-bog­gling rea­sons why she strongly op­poses the ap­proval of 10-storey build­ing height lim­its: “Be­cause of ris­ing sea lev­els and birds, bats and other fly­ing wildlife and in­sects strik­ing the high-rise build­ings.”

Many of us agree with to­tally be­wil­dered Tweed coun­cil­lor War­ren Pol­glase’s state­ment on the same page: “It is like a kinder­garten in here” – and who could not agree with War­ren?

It’s about time Katie Milne stepped down from her may­oral role and con­cen­trated on her beloved wildlife in­stead, that she re­gards as more im­por­tant than the ratepay­ers’ is­sues. — Ken Wade, Tweed Heads
