4 Corners Monday

Should be interesting, just saw the shorts for it... people saying they'll not vote Labor again... It appears it's about the NSW government.

I can't see how NSW's ALP government is any different to the other ALP governments around Australia, and especially in Canberra. But I guess if I watch it Imight see tomorrow night.

OK it's on in Qld now...
Strewth, the demise of Morris Iemma - No Honour Among....

Watching this program it seems there is an ALP blueprint for pissing money up against the wall whilst not really doing anything. Surely the tax base has risen enough to support infrastructure?

How interesting, the solution provided by Rees is a tunnel and rail line between the city and the inner city - CBD Metro - wow, that's really going to help the people without any public transport at all.

Balmain Tigers' football club seems to be getting a new club on the deal - the inner western suburbs station will be constructed on the site. Members are angry, they feel the deal has been done and they had no input. A bike shop owner, operating for 36 years, was offered over $1M by Wests Development, but now that amount has shrunk by several hundred thousand dollars.

The "Metro" as it's called is not required, it is in the inner city where public transport abounds.

I'd say I can't believe it, but unfortunately, I do.

Update II:
I wonder how much this farce has already cost?

Meanwhile, a new development north west of Sydney, The Ponds, is planned and in the making. It will be the size of Canberra. There is no public transport.

Update III:
I'd like to say that the ALP is toast, but...

Yes i'll be watching this, but it's the same style of Government in all the states. NSW is just channelling Victoria in the late 80's (ie broke & clueless)

I expect the AlpBC to soft soap this.

The Alp Bias Commission? Certainly they will!

Watching now, a WTF moment.

Wow - those union thugs, very erudite and articulate (not)...mmmm....coercion of sitting MP's (classy). What a pack of nasty, incompetent, politically incestuous grubs.

Bloody daylight saving.

Oh yeah, you're on QLD time, quite an interesting program.

Wests Tigers is not far from my place. The metro is going to be a waste of space.
