The SMH has a story on plans by NSW Liberals to steal Googong dam from the ACT to water their own cities.
The ABC reports that Our Brave Leader is promising to die in a ditch to stop this massive act of larceny.
But as Googong is on Commonwealth land the ACT may well come to regret Mr. Stanhope’s continued efforts to antagonise the Commonwealth Government.
Pru Goward, running for election in Goulburn, says we can all just manage without the water. We can only hope she has the grace to never show her face in Canberra again.
The footage of the ABC’s excellent TV report on the issue is below, featuring Pru Goward looking particularly fat as she tells us she’s going to steal our water and there’s nothing we can do to stop her.
We can only hope Morris Iemma stops being such a useless waste of space and sees off Debnam’s jihadis.
UPDATED: Comrade Stanhope’s angry media release is now online.
Another Update: On reflection I have to admire the clever way Debnam and Goward have positioned this dispute to make Canberra bashing a NSW election issue while posing themselves against the widely despised Stanhope. It’s a bit like the way the ruling classes in India and Pakistan thrive and prosper off fomenting conflict between themselves. Stanhope wedges the hapless Liberals here, Debnam gets a boost there, Canberra gets screwed but who cares about us? Who cares about the actual outcomes?
Further Update: If Pru wants our water so bad why not give it to her on an installment plan? One spit at a time?
One more update for the road: The Canberra Times has extensive coverage of the thieves in the night, which fingers John Howard as being personally involved in this atrocity. No doubt a great help to his close friend Pru Goward.
