It's not just about KI, it broadly talks about the private vs public interest that is discussed here.

Ahhhhh, I actually meant I deleted the comment that was originally in that post as it went to the wrong thread. nothing wrong with posting the KI info.

Thanks, I wondered that.

Good to see though that the conflict is being thought about/discussed... even if it is in the conversation, which isn't really read by those on the side of politics who would benefit from the conflict.

Thanks Spud. I think the realisation is finally dawning that people of this ilk are rattling at park boomgates everywhere.
Some bold and flippant, others in sheep's clothing. I doubt any wasting energy in turmoils of conscience, personally I despise them for this.

There's a bit going on in the Australian, behind paywalls. I guess those supplying media outlets with their opinion are more interested in targeting high rollers, rather than garnishing support from a wider base.

Wow... there are so many half-truths, mis-truths, and devious phrasings in there, it's truly sickening. What a sad individual to have to resort to such tactics.

I wonder who his appeal is for as it's not for traditional users (who see straight through it), not many non-users (who most likely don't care). The enthusiasm for EOI's provides no stability for (most) existing business, and our park service were considering limiting rather than encouraging new entrants, so it can't be too appealing to those employed to look after parks.

"Opening up new opportunities for all Tasmanians"

Hold on!!! The Halls Island development was/is CLOSING the island to most Tasmaniains, except the very wealthy.

While I appreciate the need and importance of a strong tourism sector, lately it seems tourists and the industry are being prioritized over Tasmanians. Hence i find that last line of the Hodgman reissue absolute rubbish.
