Comment on Council wants more time to respond to water plan by Ian Sharp.

I agree with Steve Brown, Jimmy IS naive. For thinking he could have a rational debate with Steve, without personal attacks and pigeon-holing.
As for the issue of water, the idea of cap to stimulate better water conservation practices and new technologies makes sense, to get the best out of existing borefields.
There may be plenty of water further out, but that involves extra infrastructure and operating costs that we could avoid for some time if we are less profligate.

Council wants more time to respond to water plan
@ Steve … are you saying I am being hypocritical (if so, in what way? Don’t you believe me when I say I hold the belief that you are often irrational and rude in your responses on this website, am I only pretending do you think?)
Or are you saying I am being hyper-critical, too hard on you, that I should make allowances for you in some way, on account of your … what?
Just asking. And I will forgo the pleasure of sharing a dugout with Jimmy, thanks for the suggestion, but I am sure he is quite capable of making his own arrangements to deal with your outbursts.
I would be interested, however, in a more rational and thoughtful discussion of the issues related to our water. I think a cap might be useful, but we need to know more about the demands that mining might place on the resource, and how that will be dealt with.

Crikey! You used to be able to visit the conservation reserve and picnic at the tables and seats right near the base security gate.
Long before the new Turnback sign we used to ride from Alice to the gates and return, a good 50km workout.
A few years ago a friend of mine was on a walk with other members of the Alice Field Nats when approached about what they were doing in the conservation reserve, not taken kindly.

Council: Jacinta Price refuses to bury the hatchet
Sad all round. Hope everyone can just put it all behind them and move on, Council business should be the priority. Let’s not go down the American route, formal complaints and litigation, soon we’d all need personal therapists and a legal team.

@ Charlie Carter: Took your advice to John Bell, re-read Marcias’ article. Easily found. Puts a lot in perspective. Cheers.
