I'm still here and still working on the campaign to save the valley. We are only one of many campaigns that currently seem to have ongoing battles. I have no idea what is happening in this country. There are Coal Seam Gas issues and good people out protesting and speaking out to save their land and saving underground water from contamination. We're trying to save this area from a ridiculous change of zoning that will see this pristine valley surrounded by world heritage listed mountains change forever. Have all the politicians lost the plot? Do any politicians with scruples and morals exist? Does anyone accept any responsibility or accountability any more? Where is common sense? What ever happened to good government? I have lost confidence in our system - it's failing. Corruption is rife and these so-called public servants are hardly serving us. They are however very much self-serving. It's a disgrace. That good people are forced to take time from work to protest, campaign, demand, seek and virtually do the jobs which aren't being done by the very people employed to ensure logical, fair and common sense outcomes - who are these lazy, unaccountable people? In my neck of the woods, the world is a very "rotten" place at the moment. I hope it's a little better in your part of the world. Maybe when all this is over, I can return to some good old fashioned cooking.
