Fishing for Mr Gay

Hag Unsubstantiated tips and rumour …

John Gay was not “called away unexpectedly overseas” as mentioned in (the) press. He is currently fishing off Broome, Western Australia on a vessel called MV Diversity II. The contact number for the company is 08 9192 6407 & their website is www.diversitycharters.com.au (they’ll no doubt deny he’s on board)! Nice to know he takes the concerns of the Rock Lobster industry seriously! Excuse my anonymity. A matter of necessity these days, unfortunately, when speaking up against Gunns.

Meanwhile, Sue Neales $1m a day deadline

    Maybe the reason that the Tas. Country newspaper issue of June 1st. has not been whipped from all the newsagents is because John Gay is ‘overseas’. Grab a copy and turn to page 16, an article about Tamar Ridge Wines. Look VERY closely at the photo of the wine label and see that the Gold Medal awards are for. Brilliant!!!!

    I wonder if said Gay will be seen fishing off Four Mile Bluff in times to come if he gets his way with the dirty mill?
    Ironic that he should (be claimed to be) on a boat called “Diversity”.
    Still, diversity to me conjures visions of our native flora and fauna, to him it means nitens, grapes and walnuts and any other MIS that blows his way.

    Several possibilities come to mind after reading Sue Neales’s article.

    Either the Gunns board are already aware that the final agreement for this pulp mill is in the bag or the Gunns board members and shareholders are a bunch of bloody fools.

    Why would you allow contracts to be signed given the fiasco over the RPDC windup, and the controversy amongst the Tasmanian population?

    Already you have the Labor government willing to jump through hoops for you, why not just sit back, save your capital, and wait for approval to granted.

    If this decision was taken by the Gunns board without advicing their shareholders, then I’d say John Gay is on shaky ground. What possible chance would you have of attracting future investors to the company when you are shown to be incompetent at handling investment capital like this?

    I’d reckon any minor shareholders would be beating a hasty retreat to their nearest share broker to sell after hearing this news.

    Why should the Tasmanian public be held to ransom at $3.6 million per month when it wasn’t our incompetence that got us to this point?
