    Ironically, for the first time, I visited the peak of South Sister today only hours before I learned of its imminent demise at the hands of Forestry Tasmania.

    The government and its apparent land sales wing FT are to send part of this beautiful forest to the chipper against the wishes of the people.

    At current rates, with FT a law unto itself, how long will it be before Tasmania’s rego plates are changed to “The Government State”?

    Despite huge protest and scientific and social research, the bottomless budget of FT has won the day.

    While this travesty unravels our Premier is on an overseas soiree to push the case for more woodchips to be sent offshore.

    The Pulp Mill Task Force has had a nice little trip to Finland to film a “sell the dream” campaign to those “unbelievers” who dare question the practices of industrial logging.

    Meanwhile the ally of the wood chippers, unions and the State Government, John Howard, is worried about terrorists!

    If only the animals and the forests had a voice!

    Tasmania, it is time to sort the wheat from the chaff.

    Roll on the elections.
