Many of us know exactly why - because they and their staff aren't really accountable for what happens and doesn't happen inside those walls .
Because they advocate changes in the rural sector that they don't really understand? ,
Because they don't really trust and respect real people to look after the land and its natural resources ?
because they think outside mangers can look after our resources better?
They believe in meetings all right ; meetings to plan things; meetings to plan other meetings; planning meetings
We even get leaders who publicly have a go at Councillors who don't turn up to every meeting organised . Haven't they ever seen John Cleese's movie " Meetings B meetings "
Haven't they got it yet -
we want you to decide things, not plan meetings and decide what should happen at meetings ( codes of conduct number 1 says -- attend meetings, or else ???)
We want you to tell farmers if they are doing soemthing wrong and why - not ask them to read 300 pages of maps and schedules that even your staff can't digest .
If no farmers turned up at Monday nights meeting its because they do care . they are going broke feeding out poor hay to try and to stop calves and lambs dying . These are animals who still roam the countryside unlike more now in woolies that are cut up after life in a shed !
Which animal do you want us to care for Mr Green , Mr Small and Mr Crook?
The people are planning the first public meeting in years ( something the current executive can't seem to organise) at Elliminyt public Hall .
The main risk is of course that there will not be enough time to properly hear the concerns of those who haven't been heard since our executives first took office . Performance inadequate.
