The New Brisbane Line?

During WW2, defeatists were prepared to sacrifice all of Australia north of Brisbane to the advancing enemy.

Green extremists have established a New Brisbane Line whereby Northern Australia is abandoned to weeds, ferals, trees, kangaroos, government boffins and park rangers.

Every green policy seems designed to rid the north of all signs of human activity.

Bob Brown’s dream to close every coal mine, gas producer and carbon fuelled power station is well known – this should rid central Queensland of all those pesky little towns like Collinsville, Glenden, Blair Athol, Moranbah, Dysart, Saraji, Blackwater and Moura and kill that unhealthy coal boom in Alpha, Clermont, Emerald, Rolleston, Wandoan, Gladstone and Mackay.  

Then the Kyoto scrub clearing bans, the carbon credit forests and the live export barriers will help clear the outback of any hardy graziers or foresters who remain.

Greens will then use ever expanding marine parks to sweep fishermen from the Coral Sea. And the bans on any coastal developments that fall within the fatuous Flannery forecasts of fast rising seas will help clear the Gold, Sunshine, Capricorn and Coral coasts of jobs and people.

The creeping paralysis of Wild Rivers disease should cure any aborigines of development dreams in the Never-Never land.

The final straw will be the carbon tax that will hasten the closure of metal refining and processing in Mount Isa, Townsville and Gladstone, cement manufacture in Gladstone and oil refining in Brisbane.

However, nature abhors a vacuum, so more energetic people will soon occupy and use this empty land and its idle resources.

The new colonists should erect a huge green statue to their benefactor, Bob Brown, with the citation in English, for old time's sake.
