The Lockyer Valley Regional Council should stop trying to meddle in issues that are clearly the responsibility of the State and Commonwealth Governments.
If they are dissatisfied with the representation provided by State MLA for Lockyer Jim McDonald and the Federal MHR for Wright Scott Buchholz, they should simply say so.
They need to stop engaging in cheap populism, and then financing it by squandering the money and resources of those who pay rates and rent on residential properties.
Their attempted interference in the Inland Rail project has been clearly rebuffed by the project managers. This seems to have gotten up the nose of the LVRC Mayor Tanya Milligan.
She accuses them of being "disrespectful" and then rushes out and has her photo taken at the Gatton railway station, whilst pointing her thumb at a diesel locomotive.
The Inland Rail Corp used to hold public consultation meetings at the Shire Cultural Centre, but has now switched to the local supermarket car park.
Was this because the LVRC refused to continue making the centre available, or was it because the corporation was tired of these meetings being dominated by the nimby brigade?
