The Greens are copping all the blame for Woodside’s decision to cut out from a giant gas hub at James price Point, but this time they were just minor players. It was me, I take full responsibility for this decision of Woodside’s. I have described it from the start as ridiculous, for so many reasons.
Just South of Broome there was a better site that was actually shortlisted, too. I have campaigned long and hard, raised funds and posed for photographs by Woodside’s Hostile Environmental Services, otherwise known as Woodside’s hostiles. Unwillingly mind you, I think they preferred filming juveniles.
I have signed petitions, sent off letters and submissions, flooded Facebook with photos and posts, and commented on articles in blogs and fact checked other media. I have stood in front of Woodside vehicles but I failed to get arrested. My 6 foot 3 frame and 150kg must have given them hernias thinking about it.
Yes, it was my fault. I even held my nose and voted Green. No, Peter Coleman, Michael Hession, not the Greens, not Goolarabooloo, not even the Broome Community was responsible. They all helped, but I am to blame for your decision to leave. So leave now, and quickly.
Update: Darn it Red Broome reckons it was him:
