I should add that yes I really do remember what it was like.

Pity our elected representatives have forgotten….

For me and my neighbours, it was when the sky darkened so much that streetlights popped on – we’re a small loop-street group and most of us have lived there for over 20 years – we just gathered and tried to make some sense of it NO ONE had heard any word of warning ‘this is what you should do/be doing’ from the ACT Government.
BTW – on Comrade Bruford – it’s ironic that that there a glossy flyer on Action buses now, about graffiti and the reporting thereof…..
