p_hannam Please save the yellow-spotted, 4 legged, 2 eyed tree beetle. It would be far more devastating to have that go extinct than thousands of people having to run the risk of a water supply shortage

p_hannam Clearly if it’s good for people then it must be bad. One day we must put people first. I say extend the wall.

paulguy6 p_hannam More rubbish from GladysB and this dodgy corrupt NSW LNP auspol

p_hannam Gladys Berejiklian and Mike Baird have to be the greatest environmental vandals this country’s has ever seen. Does anyone else compete? Successive Liberal Party Enviro Ministers perhaps under Howard and since Howard?

p_hannam Don't the little critters move when the dam goes up or down?

p_hannam We are all a threatened species

p_hannam If we want 'big Australia', this the price. The Chinese government must laugh at the flap we get ourselves in over minor infrastructure projects.

p_hannam Where is the additional water for 3 million more immigrants 'planning tsar' LucyTurnbullGSC (MalcolmTurnbull in Qanda) wants to whack into Sydney?

p_hannam And if we don't it will have a significant impact on half a million people. Where does the balance lie? The dam will cover less than an extra 2% of the National Park

p_hannam Another desalination plant or two would be cheaper in my opinion. This dam was built in 1954. They stopped taking school groups in the tunnels in the wall years ago because there are leaks in the wall!

p_hannam water is vital for Sydney as d city is going to cater for 10mils soon Heritage bushland is only 2nd fiddle The public would be very upset when d city is growing but water supply stays d same With more frequent drought we need extra storage

p_hannam We need .more dams and more storage but will it ever be allowed to happen?

US federal worker gets nothing but zeros in historic government shutdownSome 800,000 US federal workers have received paychecks with zeros in them for the first time amid the prolonged partial government shutdown. No hungry jacks this week I’m afraid. Go see Chuck & Nancy.... That’s your problem right there... So the bureaucrats who run the pay system are still working (and being paid, presumably). Sounds like something out of Yes Minister
