It appears the forthcoming chat-a-thon to secure some ideas for the year 2020 is already causing a disturbance among the female intelligencier. Of the ten selected overlords it appears that only one woman (Kate Blanchett) was invited, and this has upset “the girls”, mind you looking at those selected as team leaders (for want of a better term) I think Im on “the girls” side here. The team leaders are not a very impressive bunch really, on paper that is, however with some luck there should be a few smarties among the proposed 1000 thats yet to be dug-up. But let me put this to you, we are going to have 1000 bright sparks hoping to come up with one or more ideas for the year 2020. These people can see into the future knowing what the economics and life will be like in the year 2020, I bet they can. But let me tell you this, shove this in your perculator and see if it comes out frothy, a man of vision a man still amongst us and was truly a visionery but like all men of vision their ideas are never implemented till its too late. The ideas man in question is one Ernie Bridge, aboriginal, politian, musician and a well respected top Australian bloke. His idea and vision was to pipe water from the Ord to supply Western Australia and possibly other parts of the country also. Had it been implemented it would have been up and running now and farmers and the community in general would be feeling the benfits of it. In the last couple of years Ernie Bridge’s idea has come to the forefront because it was a great idea but now its expensive (as it always was) but you pay for what you get and right now it woould have been the best thing that could have happened to this state and its water supply. So back to the 2020 chat-a-thon whatever ideas they come up with will never come to fruition because the people Ive heard speaking on radio are to personal with their thoughts wants for the future and dont have the community vision like Ernie…………….just my opinion as always.
