It’s not often I get political as there are always two sides to every story but today’s Panic is a little dig at the South Australian government. It has recently been approved by the government that the forests rotations in the state’s south east (my region) will be forward sold and there is a real risk of nasty economic consequences for our cities and towns. The selling of the forests is a fairly blatant cash grab on behalf of the government and add to this the approval of the building of a new football oval in the centre of Adelaide, it really makes us regional folk feel like we have got the short end of the stick.
If you would like to know more, check out the campaign that was run to stop the forward selling here.
Now the illustration is about as subtle as a sledgehammer and really not that witty which all good political cartoons should be, but hey, I only set aside a small amount of time each day to knock these Panic’s out! 🙂
