[Forum] With the threat of COVID-19, the completion and handover of the rail maintenance facility at Kangy Angy should be muted, no hand shaking, no back slapping and masks should muffle the congratulations.

The residents of Kangy Angy are welcoming concrete bunkers, perimeter fences topped with razor wire, security cameras covering local access roads, and spotlights around the perimeter.

All that is missing are watch towers with security guards brandishing Kalashnikovs.

Gone are the frogs, trees, birds, platypus and an important habitat.

So much lost, so little gained.

This execrable state government has had its way, mission accomplished, and we the little people are left living next to Colditz. Ra ra ra.
