The West Coast of Tasmania produces about forty percent of Tasmania's income, and is, as far as the State Government is concerned, a region to be forgotten and ignored. There is just not the voting population there to affect either the government, or opposition. It became obvious to Leon Fernley and four of his colleagues that there was a desperate need to right the wrongs of the past hundred years of neglect and being ignored and appeals for fair funding falling on deaf ears in Hobart. The State Government does not take the West Coasters seriously and they decide to call the Government's bluff and govern themselves. A secession is inevitable, but it is tinged with intrigue of national, and international conspiracy.
