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 pond. 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.
