Cr Michael Lyon, The Pocket

In response to Tom Tabart’s concerns (Letters July 24), relating to GHD and their potential contracting with Adani. This council passed an anti-Adani motion on November 23, 2017 that means that any company with links to Adani is not eligible for Council business. So should GHD start working with Adani, they will no longer be able to work for Council.

Perhaps the relentless focus on the negative can mean you miss some of the positive things going on.

  1. This example of a ‘positive thing’ is rather demonstrative. A popular but rather tokenistic gesture that allows for a bit of self-righteous chest beating at the expense of local pockets but doesn’t cost individual councillors much angst. The grandstanding fell also for the limiting view that Adani is the touchstone of climate action.

    The debate was accompanied by large posters in the crowd reading, ‘Stop Labour’s Adani Mine’, as though the Coalition was dead set against it. Glad they’re back in power?

    I didn’t mind my rates aiding this gesture but I think it would seem less hollow if it was accompanied by more demonstration of that wise mantra: THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL.
