How often will Rose Wanchap continue to change personal status in order to suit her personal aspirations?
She entered [Byron] Council on the strength of Greens support and then changed sides to suit her conservative aspirations. Now she has dropped her real estate status in order to keep the heat off her pre-selection aspirations. Yet she is very proud of her achievement in erecting the Belongil Wall aiding Manfred Street!
The stark Belongil reality reveals itself again: a real estate bonanza with the information ‘that the absolute beachfront property on Childe Street ‘is expected to sell for between $4.95 and $5.4 million” (Echo August 31). No doubt aided by the erection of the Wall.
It is becoming morally repugnant to read of these games at a time when well over a 100 scientists wrote to the Prime Minister warning of the dire affects of climate change and the dismantling of ARENA the organisation aiding the economic transitions to renewables. Indeed, further information reveals that the Great Gulf Stream, which regulates the Earth’s atmosphere is threatened with extinguishment of its activity due to climate change.
What use is a wall in a coastal community against such forces? Should she fail to enter Council will Rose become a real estate agent again? Why would anyone vote for a real estate agent to enter council? The real world is a much more serious place but I think I now get it: it’s a game of blind man’s bluff, somewhat like Nero playing the fiddle whilst Rome burns – ah yes, and waiting for the solar train to get out of town!
Given the recent legal information condemning the misconduct of Rose Wanchap in relation to non-disclosure and voting against a DA which posed a threat to her interests she should immediately stand down from Council re-election and Cr Hunter should do the same for voting to keep the code of conduct censuring her behaviour a secret.
This collusion against the rule of law and public interest reveals why real estate agents should never stand for council”.
