    I think this means Bbb is revising his ‘holier than though’ stance on bad language. Personally I’m neither shocked by his profanity or hypocrisy, but rather more disappointed that ubBbb and Bbbub don’t make funnier acronyms.

    I can’t wait to hear the mouthful of polite language primed for Hobart’s streets tonight.

      I am sorry to disappoint you further Spikey, but by definition ubBbb and Bbbub are not acronyms.

    Rob … For thousands of years what we now call the WHA survived to be this naturally beautiful landscape .. and only a cretin would fail to appreciate its beauty.

    “I am sure that voters from the fire affected areas Central highlands, Maydena, Huon, and Smithon will be much more inclined to vote for the Liberals who are actually concerned about people living in rural areas for unnecessarily having to put up the consequences of living close to unmanaged Reserves dotted throughout these regions.”

    If the people who live in the above areas had any brains at all the Liberals would be the last political party on their voting list. Wasn’t it the Liberal party who tried to turn Tasmania into the plantation state? Wasn’t it the Liberal party which tried to clear-fell the state for plantations, and it is a fact that the plantations are fire prone and not damp WHA?

    Rob, how much was spent on FRB? It was a total waste of taxpayers’ money. Did FRB stop one fire?

    There has been a lot said about FRBs and how useless they truly are, but your mentality is entrenched and nothing will shake your belief in FRB and a disintegrating Liberal Party.

    Burn baby burn is worried about fires, and GetUp.
    Subtly blaming wilderness for Tasmanias flammability exacerbated by forestry.
    I guess we can all attend at 6:45 to see whether Bbb is going to upset this democratic election launch.
    My guess is he’s all TT talk, and there will be no mouthful from him.

    Moderator, I dont see any benefit by having Get Up roaming aimlessly around the State preaching environmental nonsense ! There is absolutely zilch reasoning that the government either State or Federal would remotely consider a Tarkine NP.

    Most National Parks, unfortunately are serious fire threats to the wider community in this state this has been brought out in the open recently by complete lack of fire management in those areas.

    Nor do I trust Labor and there unions involved who forced upon us more Reserves to “harbour wildfire ignitions” as a result of the Tasmnaian Forest Agreement legislation 2013. The cost of loss of commercial timber and damage to those un managed Reserves within the WHA clearly indicate to me the system is not working, if you see what I mean!

      Rob … I can only feel sorry for you.

      Your entrenched, dogmatic attitude to parks, natural forests, FRB and RGB are symptoms of a career in forestry, where what you were taught and came to believe was a form of brainwashing.

      Forestry Tasmania (or STT) was set up to destroy the forest industry’s long term survival, to clear fell instead of selective harvesting, and to provide wood chips for Gunns and to turn forests into plantations. Once it started the downhill slide of forest destruction, people like you who were trained in the stupidity of clear felling and RGB and come to believe what they were taught, became no different to brainwashed Muslims.

      You believe, as do Muslims, that what you were taught is the only way. All religions survive by indoctrination and you were well and truly indoctrinated .. as you have well and truly proved.

    Bugger you lot, as I am going into this Federal election primarily to vote for what is best for Australians collectively and not some nuisance related issues such as the stupid idea of more National Parks when it has been proven beyond reasonable doubt during this fire season the SW WHA is a time bomb remaining unmanaged carrying unacceptable higher and higher fuel loads as teh years pass with only a few pitiful fuel reduction exercises being carried out in the mean time.

    I am sure that voters from the fire affected areas Central highlands, Maydena, Huon, and Smithon will be much more inclined to vote for the Liberals who are actually concerned about people living in rural areas for unnecessarily having to put up the consequences of living close to unmanaged Reserves dotted throughout these regions.

    The majority of us are sick and tired of Parks and forever exposing our local Fire Service Volunteers to endless fire related duties supressing wildfires extending across the broader areas of the State outside of their local fire station areas.

    Absolutely no more National parks or Reserves, only complete cretins would advocate such reckless changes of tenure to promote more opportunities for uncontrollable wildfires.

    Get up, get lost you totally useless bastards in fact get out of Tasmania you are not welcome here at all.
    Dont ever let me see you on the streets around Hobart, you will get a mouthful from me !

      I’m not sure how Lucifer Robin is going to make his interjecting stand at the town hall Get–up meeting.

      For a start there is a flight of stairs to confront, so he might struggle to get up those with his Zimmer frame. Even if does manage that, there are the double doors to enter. Maybe he can simply stand in the foyer with a loud-hailer and give everyone the mouthful he wails about.

      Somebody should video his foolish outburst so we can show the world why we have reached this bleak point in civilisation on the earth we currently have, and the urgent need to move forward, ASAP.

      Deep down, we all know he is merely a paper-tiger resource industry troll.
