Life is full of not so gentle ironies.
The Clarence Valley has been fighting off irrational water raiders for years, due to the terminal decline of the Murray Darling Basin river systems and the ongoing greed of irrigators from within this basin.
Now former Queensland Goss Government Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Rev. Pat Comben (who held that ministerial post during a period when the rapacious Cubbie Station was allowed to continue sucking the northern basin dry) wants to be elected to Clarence Valley Council this September.
Somehow I don't think Reverend Comben will be getting the 'green' vote within the electorate.
Crikey yesterday on the subject of Cubbie Station here.
