There is a new proposed legislation which will stop people growing and keeping a wide variety of plants due to alleged chemicals which are in them. Some of the plants include cacti, violets and wattle varities.
Sounds like something the EU would come up with! We seem to have entered the age of meddling and control - I can't see what problems a few cacti on a windowsill would cause
sounds like a plot to make the folks buy what is imported only and not have there own. A loss of personal freedoms, like in the US I guess
not good. Small group of folks engineering the world for every one else, no good at all
What other wild and wonderful things are our pollies gonna find to waste our good tax payers money on? This has got about as much chance of getting through parliament in it's present shape as I've got of flying to the moon.
Included in the list is the 'wattle' tree and there are literally millions of these growing around Australia.
Newsflash! Australian government is no better than any other government, by and large
Probably afraid of the slippery slope. First plants then you'll start licking toads!
Just hope they don't go after bananas, hard to tell the effect on earnest if they do!
I heard that!
The problem is we have a very deeply religious opposition leader in Tony Abbot aka "the mad monk." who will be behind this somewhere.
He is probably trying to save us from ourselves again.
What do plants have to do with religion? Or is he just bored?
It begs the question of what Tony Abbot does with a cactus? Even over here, we have seen that unfortunate picture of the speedos.
Sounds like OZ has its own version of the Birch society to..!
Building a wood box with Intel stickers on it and filling it with Bannana's for Earnest....High Tech stuff here!
is this state or federal and then have a look a little more.
Beaucracy gone haywire.
Crazy! And to drug traffickers it won't matter whether they are illegal or not.
Dammit, this means there is now one less English-speaking country to which I can flee if I get fed up with America.
One good thing about living here is if they play up we chuck em out!
Also we are not even 10% as religiously zealous as our American cousins are.
