MULLUM FIGHTS WOOLWORTHS The Land & Environment Court appeal by Woolworths against our Councillors rejection of their shonky sewage will be continued 18, 19, 20 November in Sydney as Wws still needed to provide "more information". In other words, Wws knew their current proposal wasn"t viable, so they are now working on yet another plan. Because Wws caused this delay, our counsel, Tim Robertson, will request Wws pay the court costs. As Duncan says in the Echo this week, its extraordinary that Wws can keep changing the plans for the sewage system and the court case will not judge the system that was refused they will be judging the case on the merits of whatever can be dreamed up between now and the hearing. Does that sound fair to you?

ANOTHER SWINE FLU CONSPIRACY THEORY: The main point of the mass vaccination is to implant nanotechnology microchips that will allow external manipulation of the body mentally, emotionally and physically - including the so-called 'death chip' that can be used to assassinate targeted people or cause mass extermination. This is from [SpiritualPrep2012] David Icke.
