My apologies for my silence, but it appears there are issues not up for discussion.
So with a state election coming, how about the transport Issue? Are we allowed to comment on it? We all know that our local roads are already congested. If it was good enough for the authorities to remove our rail lines for a bike track… why don’t they now remove the total city rail network and tell the people to ride bikes? It would appear that our needs are different from the cities’.
I want a one-word answer, ‘yes’ or’ no’, no polywaffle.
My question to all candidates running is this: ‘Do you support bringing back light rail, to connect all of the Far North Coast to the South-East Queensland network? ‘Yes’ or ‘No’?
Our road network is totally congested… it is beyond a joke, but so far not one candidate has bothered to mention doing anything about it. It will only get worse, which would be hard to believe. My request to all voters is to eliminate all candidates who have no vision in saying ‘No’. Thus, only consider the candidates who answer ‘Yes’.
I’d be far more interested in your apology for inciting trail haters by counselling them to put tacks on the trail and offering advice on how not to be caught in your recent letters to The Echo.

Not so clever after all Mike?
