I HAVE read your article Diggers move in .. regarding New Ferry and the disappointment that the Government are not funding this.

Government money comes from us, the tax and ratepayers, who, I am, sure mostly insure their own properties.

My son had a major fire at his house and the insurance company stepped in straight away.

They re-housed the family, repaired the property and replaced all their belongings.

He paid for his own disaster.

As a Government taxpayer, while I feel very sorry for what has happened, I don't see why I should pay for people who don't seem to have insured their properties properly.
