Highlights of my week

Having a local council worker tell me that she only wants to hear good things about the area. So I gave her a glass of prussic acid and told her that the glass is half full....

And in another shire not a thousand miles away an elderly woman tells me that "I have been treated for the chemical smoke over 24 times, provided doctors certificates and still they say no proof where the smoke/chemical is coming from?  I will need to have a horticulturalist test my dead plants." 

They are her local Council, EPA, State Health Service, State Police and now Federal Human Rights Commissioner responsible for the rights of the elderly. That they have all washed their hands of the matter saying it is a private matter for her to prove that a neighbour is subjecting her to toxic gasses or that Australian law does not cover the matter is unacceptable. I wonder what would happen if the same occurred to them?

Research on the internet identifies that equipment exists to test for these gasses but has not been used to monitor what gasses are coming into her property. Nor have medical certificates been asked for or examined. Will it not occur until the coroner's inquest? 

The whole issue has either been handled with all the finesse and intelligence of the clowns in a back-block's one ring circus or with all the efficiency and odour of corrupt cover up.

Isn't it time that someone, like the UN Human Rights Commission held Australia and these people to account? Isn't it time the citizens demanded that they receive accountability, value and protection through the expenditure of their hard earned tax payments?

Other than the current number of people affected, this has no significant difference in outcome than the systemic genocide implemented during Pol Pot and Hitler's regimes. Eventually this woman could die as a result of these poisonous emissions entering her property and affecting her physical and mental health.
