Nuclear waste dumping: as the Baldock family sells farming land, is the agricultural market for Kimba now stuffed up?

As the Baldock family anticipates the establishment of a nuclear waste dump on Jeff Baldock’s land,  they now sell a large chunk of their farming land, along with three other farming families that have made the same decision. (Reported in The Advertiser , 14 Feb 2020)

It looks as if they are  getting out fast, before the dirty nuclear waste news is widely known.

And here are some of the many comments on Facebook:

James Shepherdson It is actually about roughly 20ks from the site and has only just been added to the other land for sale. Read into it what you will , but if he’s planning to stay he’s sure sending the wrong message with this move .As far as being approachable, been there done that and got jumped on by council and the gov department and were accused of bullying . this will go down in history as the most undemocratic process in this country

K Bruun I can’t – but at the same time ‘can’ – believe this. I am amazed at how planned this has been. There must be something sociopathic about these people. I still don’t understand how Baldock could spend his nuffield scholarship learning how to keep families on farms together, yet does this. What is the psychology behind people like this? They have effectively harmed their entire community.

Joshua Jaeger Selling it before it becomes worthless.
Zac Eagle Rats didn’t take long to jump the sinking ship
Jillian Marsh As always the business people will pack up and move on because it’s a business venture. The Traditional Owners face another round of dispossession and destruction as their sovereign lands are RE-colonised and further desecrated. Very sad and sorry state of affairs …
Noel Wauchope Perhaps the Baldocks and others look to a “healthy”economic transition for Australia from an agricultural country to the world’s quarry and waste dump.
Paul Waldon How many children will this crumbling community lose from this and future sales of properties.

Kazzi Jai  Paul Waldon “It was sheer elation when I heard,” Baldock says. “I’m very, very excited about what lies ahead for Kimba. It gives me a great feeling of relief. I’m quite excited to have it on my property and see it develop, to have our kids around it and see some opportunities close to home.”

Joanne Borchers Yeah nah! Good luck offloading that with what’s planned by the grubby government for the Eyre Peninsula… soon to be the worlds nuclear waste dumping ground. People be selling up in droves and government will pick it up for a song and make squillions in dirty money … a big F U to the people of SA… hate what’s happening 
Paul Waldon Zac Eagle I wouldn’t know myself, however the Baldock with his property on the market may trying to distance himself in an attempt to elude the stigma and a name that one day maybe synonymous with shame.

  Noel Wauchope Perhaps the Baldocks and others look to a “healthy”economic transition for Australia from an agricultural country to the world’s quarry and waste dump.

Paul Waldon Another casualty of a Radioactive dump, I presume.
Paul Waldon $31 mil not looking so good.
