Letter To The Editor of the Armadale Examiner, 24 July 2007

The full text of the Letter to the Editor of the Armadale Examiner, sent on 24 July 2007, is below.


I am writing about a news item that I encountered today, 24 July,  with the
headline "Public get say on WA water supply", and the first sentence of the
news item reading "Western Australia's Economic Regulation Authority is
calling for public submissions on what should be done to improve the state's
water supply.

This is clearly yet another sick practical joke being played on the people
of Western Australia, by the state government.

I attended the first "public forum" in the state that was held at Armadale,
regarding the "water problem" in the state, when we had the galloping
premier, who went on television on the night of that forum, and basically
said "We don't care what the people say or want. The forums are an absolute
waste of time. We have already made up our mind as to what we will and will
not do about water in the state, and we will not take any notice of the
people of the state."

It is apparently the policy of the state government, to show absolute
contempt for the people of the state, and to rub the collective nose of the
people of the state, in the excrement that is being forced down the people's
collective throat.

This is exemplified by the "Champion Lake" facility, where the state
government and its minister for destruction, created a big pond, taking
water from farmers, to show that the state does not have any problems with
any shortage of water, by creating the big pond purely to show everyone that
so much water exists in the state, that massive resources could be diverted,
to take the water supply from the farmers, so that city people could splash
around in it and give the finger to everyone not splashing around in the

Then we have the desalination plants that were guaranteed to end all water
restrictions, as they guaranteed adequate supply of water for years to come.
Yeah, right. The effect of the desalination plants, is an immediate increase
in water restrictions, to counter the damage of the desalination plants.

And, we have the sabotaging of the road system, to create the mandurah
railway, which is going to be effectively run by steam engines, as the state
government will simply be using coal-fired electricity generation outside
the city, to power the trains (out of sight, out of mind - "the environment
does not exist outside the grounds of parliament house").

And, the recent increasing power blackouts that we have had to tolerate, are
no doubt preparation for the rolling blackouts that will occur as the state
government diverts electricity supplies from residential areas, to the
mandurah trains, as we already lack adequate electricity supplies, BEFORE
the imposition of the extra drain of the mandurah railway line.

So, this fraud of "calling for public submissions on what should be done to
improve the state's water supply", is simply another sick practical joke
imposed on the people of the state, by a psychopathic state government.

The state government's surplus of revenue (derived through insidious means),
has shown that the state government could have paid for the Ord River
pipeline to Perth within a few years of commencement of the project,
probably by now, and we would have had adequate water supply, instead of
these ongoing sick practical jokes.
