Nannas will keep knitting until Metgasco shareholders vote
WHILE the champagne flowed and cheers erupted there was still unease among the Knitting Nannas, whose members pledged to keep their vigil outside Lismore MP Thomas George's office until Metgasco shareholders vote on a $25 million CSG licence buyback offer from the State Government.
The anti-gas group voted yesterday to remain at its "knit-in" outside Mr George's office.
Founder Clare Twomey said the group was not counting its chickens before they hatched.
"When we first heard about the buyback offer we thought it was done and dusted," she said. "But the last few days we are hearing that a lot of shareholders are saying that they won't vote for the proposal."
She said the buyback offer was proof that politicians needed to pay attention to the wishes of their communities.
