Potential Wind Farm Neighbour Finds Idyllic Property is Now ‘Unsaleable’ at Any Price

**** STT hears that hundreds of communities across rural Australia are about to launch the mother-of-all counter-attacks, against the pending threat of having their homes quite literally stolen by wind power outfits.
