Nice to see Alannah has the best intentions for the bush and it needs to be said, she was a supporter of the regions, however the Liberals hold on power is almost entirely dependant on the support of the Nationals. Not to mention that both Brendon Grylls and Colin Barnett are honourable people. Obviously good sense and sound economic reasoning will effect all mooted projects, in light of the current financial crisis sweeping the world, but I’m sure we will start to see some smaller projects take shape in the near future, along with the exciting and visionary expansion of the Ord, potentially, Australia’s food bowl. And I’m one of those who hopes our Premier hasn’t completely wiped the idea of bringing water down to Perth from the Kimberley. Greg Ross
