Can a leopard change its spots? What do you think?

After enjoying some time overseas, Chris (Gulaptis) moved back to Australia when a job opportunity became available in Mackay.
"I was so happy to get involved back into a community where mining was big again," he said.

Do you really believe that Chris Gulaptis will not be more than actively furthering the interests of mining companies if he is elected to represent the seat of Clarence?

We note his comments (published in Friday's Daily Examiner) about protecting farmland from inappropriate mining, balance etc. This is just the usual National Party cliches that were trotted out in the last election and which have proved to be just that: words. The only 'balance' the National Party is concerned with is the bank balances of their rich friends.

Perhaps he can eventually follow in the footsteps of the Liberal Party's Richard Shields.

THE deputy director of the NSW Liberals, Richard Shields, has taken a job as a lobbyist with a coal seam gas company as the O'Farrell government considers its response to increasing community concern over the rapid expansion of the sector.
Mr Shields, who has served as deputy director for close to four years, has accepted a position with the listed mining company Metgasco as its manager of external relations.
The role involves liaising with the state government and community groups as well as investor relations.

Janet Cavanaugh of The Greens has called for a moratorium on coal seam gas mining. Will Chris Gulaptis do the same? I doubt it.

  1. Typical example of the close ties between politicians from the two entrenched political ideologies - the right-wing ALP and the even further right-wing coalition of the Liberals and the Nationals.

    A leopard changing its spots is a rare phenomenon indeed.
