Very strange logic there. Methinks the present councillor is doing a ‘cover my ar*e’ routine.
Nope, Ivan. He sounds like a typical loony councillor representing a constituency of loonies who elected him. Logic is just unknown to many.
In Oz we have Green loonies on councils. They protect the flora and fauna and forest undergrowth and buy firemen’s helmets (which they don’t use) whenever a bush fire breaks out (to show they care, Don’t worry though, they claim it as an expense). And they vote down the building of dams in order to protect the lesser spotted weevil, and vote for the most incredibly expensive desalination plants because they are convinced that global warming will dry up the clouds, and then vote to mothball the plants and keep on charging their constituents for the water they don’t produce.
Daft buggers are found everywhere, not just Africa.
Amfortas, I noted that they had started the green stupidity when I left in ’87 after 18 years ( of 23 years there) in the volunteer bush fire brigade they were shouting about us keeping the fire breaks open and doing winter burns to clear out the rubbish – and this is in the state whose national flower requires a bush fire over its seed to germinate.
The fashion in Australia now is to have ‘natural fire breaks’ by just letting everything burn. After this has happened there is no need for much intervention for few years.
