‘Iconic brand moves to protect iconic mountain … Brown’

*Pic: ROB WALLS. Richard Flanagan’s memorable speech to an anti-cable car rally in Cascade Park a month ago. The speech was before thousands of people. Read the speech: HERE

Commenting on today’s decision by CUB (Carlton and United Brewery), Bob Brown said;

“It’s a great decision by a company with community interests front and centre.”

“This is an iconic brand protecting an iconic mountain.

“Tasmania will doubly celebrate.

“We will be raising a stubby of Cascade tonight,” Bob Brown said.

Bob Brown, amongst others met with CUB executives in the past 12 months.

    Re #4 … or the government could compulsorily purchase whatever land it thinks the cable car will need. They’ve done it further up, so why not down at the base as well? Take from one company to give to another. It seems so wrong, but I wouldn’t put it past them.

    There’s still a loophole here!

    Whilst Cascade claim it won’t sell or lease any land to the cable car company, that doesn’t preclude it from relinquishing land back to the HCC which they could do what it wants with it.

    I see it as an open-ended statement.

    Eastman-Nagle and MjF both seem mystified and affronted that CUB could desert the forces of Mammon smack on the eve of the apocalypse.

    They must have some venal motive, unless they’re going demented.

    Lucky the brewery’s been in situ for 200 years.

    What chance now should a beer baron propose to resume dozens of heritage listed properties, doze the site flat and construct a brewery on the edge of pristine Hobart Rivulet, add to traffic congestion, secure subsidised power, all within sight of the sacred monolith and located within residential ?

    CUB Рdo everyone a favour and at least give the fa̤ade a decent pressure clean. Gives me an idea for a name of a limited production lager.

    Well, of course Cascade is at the forefront of the protection of Mount Wellington.

    Cascade only sells progressive and ideologically sound beer, because all its executives belong to The Greens, or is it that they are just corporate leprechauns in drag? Who knows? Their environmental credentials are now so dazzling one cannot tell.

    But they know what a sacred site is because they are one to all their customers; a sacred beer for a sacred mountain.

    So naturally, after it rained indignant letters for months on end, and endless representations were made by environmental worthies to remind them of their sacred duty, they wouldn’t dream of messing with the environmental space time continuum by doing anything as disturbing to the natural order of things as allowing anything of theirs to be used in an act of wanton desecration.

    Naturally, because they are very natural people, the green execs of Cascade Enlightenment Inc saw the light, and yay friends, they were saved … the mountain was saved … everybody was saved; well almost.

    Virtue and rectitude spontaneously broke out, and now all that is required is to applaud Cascade’s no pressure decision to ‘do the right thing’ … because it was the right thing to do.

    Goodness and wholesomeness isn’t just in the froth. It’s right down to the bottom of the glass.
