Tasmania parliament in big trouble

The Premier recalls parliament -- to do what, you might well ask ?
The parliament was recalled to get around the systems they have set in place to stop corruption and retain the independant voice . NRMC
Moves might not be so bad if it was to stop the corrupt ,but the move to stop the mechanism to stop corruption is big news and a big problem -it brings the willingness of parliament to hear the truth into question .
Such moves are of historic and monumental proportions but who is talking about it.
The other paradox is the way governments, in facing an issue of progress (A papermill in Tamar valley)invoke the superman and the superparaliament - not very realistic .

Walking on water

Turnbull and Howard tried to make it happen in 2006 with the Murray Darling system but when the big dry dissipates, will the States swallow the pill? 10 billion dollars is a lot of incentive to take the bitter pill of salinity but even the rich can't buy everything - especially their credibility o when they throw it away in fearmongering and incompetence on the real conservation issues and dilemmmas of land management.
