Private Property

... Labour doesn't respect it. (Not that the Coalition are necessarily much better) Man Protests decision to make his farm a carbon sink:

As his health begins to fail, protesting farmer Peter Spencer swore yesterday he would die before giving in to a Federal Government decision to make his farm a carbon sink.

Mr Spencer ... claims the government declared his property in Shannons Flat, north of Cooma, a carbon sink without offering any compensation. He says the move has left him unable to earn a living because he cannot clear land and redevelop the farm.

A spokesperson for Mr Rudd said ... "The Government sets policy in the national interest. This policy will not be changed by threats of violence or self-harm.
