Recent newspaper reports have informed us that you, Mr. Foster, have not yet made up your mind regarding the construction of the proposed Northern Pipeline.
Mr. Foster, you are certainly entitled to your own personal opinion.
However, may I remind you that you were elected only to represent the wishes of your constituents to Victoria and not the wishes of Victoria to your constituents. It is your sacred and only duty to act according to the desires of the voters who have elected you in good faith.
In the grand scheme of things your own personal opinion is of secondary importance.
For the sake of your political future I sincerely hope that you will do the right thing.
