Wednesday 23 July 2003 will be remembered as a black day for democracy in New South Wales. On that day the NSW Labor Government spat in the faces of the citizens of Warringah by overthrowing the Council which had been democratically elected by the local population. On that day the State Government punished the hard-working, community minded, public spirited and demonstrably humanitarian majority elected Councillors, and rewarded a small group of unelected vociferous zealots whose only claim to fame is their expertise in generating complaints.

Media representatives have generally been happy to parrot the words of the Minister for Local Government, who in turn has parroted the text of a flawed report which in turn has parroted the tendentious and misleading allegations of the bunch of agitators whose aspirations for local government office were rejected by the electorate.

Why do media representatives believe what they receive in press handouts from the Labor Government. The slightest amount of independent research would quickly reveal that the Labor case against the Warringah Council - constructed in concert with the worst elements of the Greens and with the State's least meritorious independent politician - is based not on fact but only on the loud repetition of false assertions.

For facts on Warringah Council, please read my two submissions to the Inquiry.
