Googong transfer makes Jon Stanhope the Lord of the Rivers

By johnboy 4 September 2008 22

In the frantic last days before the caretaker period kicks in the Stanhope Government is getting a lot of stuff done.

Today Our Brave Leader has announced that he’s finally secured the ownership of the Googong dam under a 150 year lease.

As part of the deal ACTEW will keep providing water to fuel Queanbeyan’s parasitic growth along our border.

    ACT Chief Minister Jon Stanhope, NSW Premier Morris Iemma and Federal Minister for Finance and Deregulation Lindsay Tanner jointly confirmed the transfer today.

    “I am delighted to say that the Federal Government, ACT Government and NSW State Government have worked together to rightfully bring control of Googong Dam to the ACT,” Mr Stanhope said. “This historic agreement is crucial to ensuring long-term water security for Canberra, Queanbeyan and our surrounding regions.
