Brendon Luke, Wilsons Creek

I’d like to know who has been tresspassing on properties in Wilsons Creek to drop off propaganda material.

My CCTV has you on my deck and clearly with no-one home you proceed to check out the rest of the place.

Considering the recent break-ins and the thieves’ modus operandi of making preliminary ‘I’m lost’ enquiries at homes, you’re running a very fine line.

Listening to you talk is my choice and not your right so get over yourself and earn the right to be heard.

The basis of the ‘no’ argument is fundamentally flawed.

It’s so tiring to hear yet another typical, ‘find the right scientist and you’ll get the right answer’ strategy.

Most are blind to logic and quickly play the ‘I’m offended’ card when pure logic and facts are offered toward your theories.

If this tower does not go ahead there will be blood on the hands of the nimbys when a death occurs as a result of our third-world standard communications being a contributing factor.
