Victorias VEET scheme could cost you your home cairnsnews.org

UPDATE 1: Land Grab in Victoria Being Legislated!

Politicians are now ducking for cover!  Since revealing in a recent Cairns News article what the proposed Local Government Act 20181 bill and the 10-year old Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme)2 potentially have in store for Victorians, a few interesting events have occurred.

* A response from the Minister for Local Government (Ms. Marlene Kairouz MP) was received that did nothing to address the issues raised with her.

* Similarly, a response from the Shadow Minister for Local Government (Mr. Robert Morris MP) was received that only gave an assurance that the Liberal and National parties will not support any legislation that extends the power of local councils beyond the limits of the current Local Government Act.  He ignores the fact that the letter cast serious doubt about the lawfulness of the 1989 Local Government Act to which he refers, so his assurances are worth nothing.

Some interesting statistics have emerged in relation to this campaign:

* The previous article in Cairns News produced over 10,000 hits.  Although it is impossible to tell how many of these hits were from people located in Victoria, it does indicate there is some serious interest in this matter. 

* The Change.org petition recently produced 1,544 signatures.  This number will not worry anyone at Parliament House, Melbourne, as there are other petitions addressed to the Premier such as banning plastic bags (183,000) that he would prefer to spend more time addressing.

* The second phase of the campaign requested that Victorians email the Minister and the Shadow Minister for Local Government to require them to answer questions about the proposed legislation.  The appeal produced only 6 participants out of several thousand people emailed.  

Does this statistic indicate that Victorians are apathetic, or could it be because most people cannot find the time needed to read each document before making a decision?  Butwhat is the cost of Aussies retaining their freedomsto maintain freedom of speech, freedom of choice, or even to own their land and use it as they see fit?  Is Freedom worth a...

Titans threat to abandon Cbus confirms governments have wasted money on super stadiums "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Based on the Courier-Mail report of a threat from the Gold Coast Titans to abandon the Cbus Super Stadium, over allegedly high charges imposed by Stadiums Queensland, the huge investments successive state governments have made in super stadiums (e.g. Suncorp, Cbus and now Townsville) may have been unnecessary. Hundreds of millions of dollars that would have been better spent on health or education priorities have been misdirected. The clubs can actually make do with smaller venues. The Courier-Mail reports:

The Courier-Mail has learnt that in a tense round of high-level negotiations, the Titans issued the explosive threat to sell home games to other venues both within Queensland and interstate, leaving Cbus Super Stadium as a $160 million white elephantTitans officials got a taste of life away from the yoke of Stadiums Queensland when they went on the road to Toowoomba and Gladstone recently and were thrilled with the operational ease and commercial success of hosting those matches.

So the clubs dont need the super stadiums after all! That would save the state government over $50 million in grants each year (see my Stadiums Qld post from yesterday). However, I expect the Queensland Government will find a more footy-friendly Stadiums Queensland board and it will reach a new deal with footy clubs so the government doesnt suffer the political embarrassment of a $160 million white elephant. That, of course, would be a demonstration of the sunk cost fallacy. The government is losing money via Stadiums Queensland every year and it would be doing taxpayers a favour if it closed down the most uneconomic of its stadiums and sold them to the private sector to redevelop.

Incidentally, I had several excellent comments on my Stadiums Queensland post yesterday. Regular reader Brad suggests the governing bodies (e.g. NRL, AFL) could make a greater contribution:

One area of concern here is that the stadiums should be charging the national leagues much more money to recover costs. Each of the different leagues typically collect approximately 80% of their revenue from TV rights but those funds are not distributed to the clubs. Therefore, the leagues are getting rich while the government pays for the stadiums as the clubs have no money. The state government funding of stadiums enables the leagues to keep their money rather than them paying full cost recovery for the use of the stadiums.

Regular reader Jim noted it was a timely post:

Britains MI6 blamed for falsifying chemical attack in Syria cairnsnews.org

by Alex Bruce

 

The footage of Syrian children being hosed down with water in a hospital after an alleged chemical attack has run in thousands of loops all over Western Mainstream Media. On Thursday, Sergey Lavrov, Russias Foreign Minister and Permanent UN Ambassador claimed that these scenes were staged by British Intelligence with the White Helmets.

He referred to a video testimony of two medics from Central Hospital in Douma who say they were treating victims of smoke inhalation from a bombing when unknown people with cameras ran into the hospital, yelling about a chemical attack, which caused a panic and for people to start pouring water all over their kids. They say that no patients showed any signs of chemical exposure but they were too consumed with their tasks at hand to pay attention to those filming them.

After nearly twenty years of Americas unrelenting illegal wars in the Middle East, can we be blamed for doubting allegations of Assads use of chemical weapons?

The White House is rebuking non-believers of the Douma chemical attack. We are to believe that Western powers are responding in Syria to a Red Line that has been crossed due to Bashar al Assads alleged use of chemical weapons. This, after hed already won the civil war and supporting troops were in retreat. This, after these same powers have been spending the better part of the past two decades killing over one million Iraqis, an untold amount of Afghans, destroying Libya (at that time the most prosperous country on the African Continent) and causing the humanitarian crisis in Yemen and bombing the Hell out of Syria for the past 7 years.

Jake Morphonios asks, If we are to believe that Bashar al Assad is gassing his people, that this was a chemical weapons attack, that is the justification to go in and bomb Syria and risk World War III with Russia, folks; if Donald Trump goes forward with this, without really putting out to the public irrefutable proof and after that, going first to the US Congress to get a Constitutional Declaration of War, if Donald Trump does not do those things, I think that Donald Trump should be impeached because he is putting the lives of every single one of us at risk

If he puts my life and the lives of my wife, my children, my country, the people of the Earth at risk by going head-to-head with a nuclear power like Russiathis could spiral out of control and cause incredible suffering and it is not based, at this point on what I believe to be factual evidence; I believe that this is a false flag that has been contrived to justify taking out Assad and expanding war in the Middle East and going after Iran.
