Re your article Wave of protest follows new bid for cruise-ship terminal, Echonetdaily January 8: The Kirra proposal is merely blackmail to get the Broadwater proposal through.

Brisbane is a dog of a place for a cruise liner terminal. Modern cruise liners can’t get into it, what with the mud flats in Moreton Bay and the erratic flow of the Brisbane River.

The real problem is that world cruising by ocean liners is a cut-throat business; the safety record is daunting and it’s like a honeypot to terrorists. It has all the makings of a temporary fad.

That would leave the cruise liner terminals… well… terminal. Like the mooring posts for zeppelins.
