no pulp mill, no pulp mill

I am loving all your advice for our Sunday dilemma... in fact I'm loving my blog community. Thanks for reading and commenting and participating and, well, just being interested in my life. Which is, of course, VERY interesting.

Anyway, back to the BBQ - to go or not to go? That is the question!

Our decision has been made infinitely easier by the Federal Environment Minister Malcolm Turnbull's decision to approve the pulp mill yesterday.

We are not surprised (who really was?), but neither are we amused. So in the end we've made the decision to unite with those against the pulp mill in a show of strength and solidarity.

We will not be attending lunch with our friends.
We will be driving up the Tamar to protest this mill.

Mr Turnbull made an interesting claim today:

This decision on the pulp mill is based on science and science alone

Um... Mr Turnbull... what about the money? Let's be honest and call a spade a spade. This isn't about science, this is about money. You and your fellow state and federal parliamentarians want the glory of approving a big money spinner for, is it yourselves? Oh no. That's right, it's for the people of the country. This will do wonders for our economy right? Such a shame most of us don't want it.

I, for one, am looking forward to the election. Because that, Mr Turnbull and all your fellow federal parliamentarians, will be your day of reckoning. We will vote. We will have our say in the end. And you will have to listen, because ultimately we will decide if you return to power. Or not.

So let the games begin.
On Sunday.
At the rally.

F*****G Political hacks are ALWAYS about the money. Follow the money trail and see who profits most from the mill:(

I'm sorry about the mill Cec. I'll be thinking of you on Sunday.

Hope the rally goes well! I was sad when I heard the mill was to go ahead :(

Oy. Bad news. Another loss for the 'little people'. Mike is right - follow the money trail. I'm eager to hear how the rally goes. I'll be with you in spirit, Cecily! Go get 'em!
