(1) Definition of immediate neighbours changed from one phase to the next .SHAME

(2) The term broad community support being determined by one minister’s definition .SHAME

(3) 2789 submissions from outside Kimba boundary acknowledged but obviously not considered in final decision .SHAME

(4) Community supporting members closer to the site than the township of Kimba not given a vote . SHAME

(5) Landowner able to nominate without first consulting with community. SHAME

(6) Site now characterised as a station to imply that it is in some kind of remote far away land . SHAME

(7) Calling high level waste intermediate . SHAME

(8) Implying that the Kimba community is somehow responsible for the ongoing production of nuclear medicine . SHAME

(8) Native title holders acknowledged but not considered in final decision . SHAME .

(9) ARPANSA guidelines regarding agricultural land completely ignored. SHAME

(11) My descendants will be forced to apologise on behalf of a decision I did not make.SHAME.

(12) MONEY , MONEY, MONEY, may well have a happy rhythm to it, but what of the decision if there were no dollars attached . This process has left one part of our community joyous and the rest of us absolutely gutted. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME
