Wasn’t it sad to read about accountant Michael Lyon’s trauma over the loss of funds due to the delay of his Bypass project. Absolutely no mention of his concern for critically endangered animal species, protected wooded wetlands, the habitat of many other sentient beings, the desires of his community and Commonwealth law.

Just like his federal political counterparts who are intent on approving countless earth shattering mining projects, and the continued destruction of our beautiful country for profit, he pushes for destruction of our local environment.

Q: How do these politicians (local, state and federal) get away with such acts? A: We let them. Time for a community vote of no confidence for Mr Richardson and Lyon – fast! Business as usual ensures our Extinction.
