Well it’s Monday and you can tell it’s Monday because laughs are over unless of course it’s the sound of my hysteria due to yet another stellar decision on behalf of Mr Abbott and the puppet theatre called the federal government.
It seems that opening his mouth only to stick his foot in it hasn’t deterred Abbott from making some rather excessively stupid remarks of late and worse wanting to transfer those ideas into legislation. One of the most recent of these was regarding our native forests.
It seems Mr Abbott is convinced that we have too many trees, I don’t think our native animals would agree there nor would our O2 levels. Despite several reports directly opposing this point he is determined to pursue the option of reducing the amount of protected areas in and around Australia. Remember ladies and gentleman this is the man that as one of the first moves he made as Prime Minister divested his cabinet of a Ministry of Science and Research.
This attitude toward our environment immediately seemed like a wonderful idea to the NSW government who are already offering themselves up for future Fracking. But in the meantime they appear to think that woodchipping is the way to go with our native forest.

Really makes me wish I could take the O’Farrell government in NSW camping – and if you’ve seen my post Why I don’t camp you’d understand my intent. Where’s a python when you need it or at least a crocodile.
