What they said (VII)

From a comment on the Advertiser site:

gerard from nl writes: The government know the roll they played in the closure of the mill, and the workers certainly remember how strongly thier vote was influenced by a man who said he would take care of them. So, the people who still harbour major grudges and jealousy because these workers were lucky enough to make a good living, are the ones who need to lighten up. The government know what is owed to this town and these workers, and with continuing pressure i believe they will fullfill thier obligations. The government owns the mill, and owned it when it actually closed, so technically, they were responsible for the closure, even though thier official story is they never realized the gov. owned the mill till May, lol....So start living up to your word Mr. Williams, give back jobs to these workers especialy the jobs such as mill security, and working on the dam and POWER CANNEL. These jobs were always performed by these workers so if the jobs are still there, then the workers should still be doing them. Make them whole again Mr. Williams, live up to your promises..

According to Gerard, the government didn't realize it owned the mill until "May".

The expropriation bill was rushed through the House of Assembly in December 2008. The only May which has already occurred, for the government to realize it owns a mill in, was May 2009 — eleven months ago.
