Geoff Saves Whales: TV

Geoff Gallop compromised the WA Tourism industry by pandering to the anti-development crusades of the WA Greens. Is he trying to hide his embarassment? Quite the contrary.

Geoff is so proud of himself he took out a TV ad to gloat! (And by “he” I mean “WA Taxpayers”):

The Future Directions report was released by Dr Gallop after he herded hacks on to a plane and flew them to Coral Bay to announce that he single-handedly “saved” the reef by canning Mauds Landing. This claim, of course, is complete nonsense. The only thing he saved, for the time being at least, was his own political skin.

If you haven’t seen the ads on telly promoting this wonderful decree, you really should as it’s costing WA taxpayers $350,000 to be subliminally informed that apart from the Incredible Hulk, there’s no one greener than our Premier.

Geoff, like his wet idol, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise, is boldly going where no man has gone before in the pursuit of conservation:

Dr Gallop told the recent State ALP conference that his Government is on track to create 30 new national parks.

That should make it an even hundred. WA already has 63 national parks and 7 marine parks, which collectively cover an area of over 200,000 sq km, or 7 SBUs (Standard Belgium Units).
