Australian government’s Kimba nuclear waste plan. Questionable ”independence” of District Council, and dubious discussions with State Minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan.

Dan van Holst Pellekaan, South Australian Minister for Energy and Mining

While I have not seen the details of the Supreme Court decision referred to below it should be a great boost for Kimba and of serious implications for the state and federal governments’

It is obvious that the South Australian government will have to publicly disclose all documents and information given or received by it which should presumably include all transactions with the federal government in its various guises

The disclosures will also include the Kimba District Council which will put its councillors in an invidious position in trying to give the Kimba community impartial and independent advice while at the same time trying to justify its past actions with regard to the federal government’s proposals for the nuclear waste management facility at Kimba

This untenable situation for the Kimba councillors may require them to stand aside while commissioners or administrators are appointed to run the Council 

Senator Rex Patrick should be resoundingly thanked and congratulated on his efforts in bringing this action in the face of dire threats by Minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan
