Best of Canberra – Vietnamese

By 2 September 2014 9

Political dilemmas

By 2 September 2014 3

As a person who likes to be involved in my community, and indeed am, politics has become quite a frustration for me lately. I feel really compelled to join a particular political party on a federal level - happy to disclose, the ALP - because I am completely unimpressed with the various agendas o...

Lake George- Extract from ‘A Case for Ghosts (Part 5)

By 2 September 2014 3

Civil Defence Sirens for ACT?

By 18 December 2009 21

Wouldn't it be nice if the ACT GovCo spent some tax payer dollars on something useful... in my opinion, bizarre statues of obese naked men reading books on city walk, are not that useful. The new mobile phone alert system has many flaws, the primary ones being someone who doesn't have a mobile ph...

Gotta tell me: ACT petrol prices

By 18 December 2009 10

Re-connecting with my roots and returning to the ACT has been a bit of an eye opener for the family on the petrol price front. Even Goulburn saves me up to 10 cents a litre on fuel compared to ACT prices that I've found around Civic. Can Rioters please let me know where the cheapest ACT petrol...

Brodburger too successful?

By 17 December 2009 53

Heading down to Brodburger tonight I was dismayed to see a sign on the little red van that they have been told they will have to leave Bowen Park by the middle of next year. They have started a petition so if you have had a good burger from down there or just like seeing lit up little red caravan...

Tuggers Cinema: Reopening 26 Dec

By 17 December 2009 17

WIN News tonight featured a quick story on the Tuggeranong Hyperdome Cinema. Following Hoyts' exit earlier this year, "Limelight Cinemas" will fill the void, reopening on 26 December after some renovations (and going by the pictures on WIN News, looks very swish too) Their website can be found he...

Bob McMullan tries card trick on Gungahlin offices

By 17 December 2009 17

Bob McMullan is trying to divert attention from his own failure to deliver jobs for Gungahlin. He has called on the ACT Government to use the empty office space upstairs in The G shopping centre to help the construction backlog. Yes it should have been used by the ACT Government when they relo...

Commonwealth trumps Queanbean City Council

By 17 December 2009 15

Finally sanity prevails as reported in today's Crimes on the notion of building anew beneath flight paths. I find it amusing that a federal government independent review is deemed an 'air swing' by the Tralee developers. Give it up already! Mr Albanese also attacked the notion that because planes...

Fool or perve? It's academic.

By 17 December 2009 16

The Canberra Times reports yet another example of a local academic being done for "grooming" a child for sex. The man in question is a pal of the girl's father and apparently has already lost his own wife and son through his actions.  Kudos to the father for reporting this to the police rather ...

Australian Government to censor the Internet

By 16 December 2009 54

I know this isn't strictly an ACT issue, [Ed don't worry, we're very much against it here in the Riot bunker as seen here, here and here] but this is something that I believe is still relevant to RiotACT readers as it is something that will affect all Australians, i just want to bring awareness to t...

Places Around Canberra Vol 1 - Wee Jasper

By 16 December 2009 16

Hi Rioters (The website readers.... not the ones who smash shop windows and steal TVs.... although, hello to you too). I've been in Canberra for 18 months now and mostly stayed in the city for the breaks. Most people tend to head towards the coast for long weekends and the like, I've been on the r...
