The Canberra Times is reporting that the couple living in the Weston Creek cottage are to be evicted on Saturday night and a fence placed around the property with a security guard.
The couple are quoted as saying, “they have paid absolutely nothing for perfect caretakers of the cottage and now the people of the ACT are going to be paying through the nose to protect this place. It’s just unbelieveable.”
Or is it? It seems that the only people the security guard will have to protect the place from is the people who are currently residing there.
I find it hard to feel sorry for a couple who have paid absolutely no rent for nearly 30 years. If they are allowed to stay now the Government will probably be placed in a position where they will get some kind of recognition of ownership.
Mrs Farrell says, “today I am so angry I could scream. It’s just been a roller coaster of emotions. I just think it is so unjust.”
Does anyone agree?
