The Arboretum – a housing estate?

By Masquara - 7 March 2014 77

Apparently there are to be houses among the trees in the Arboretum? (I just caught a quote on ABC 7.30). The reporter said “among” the trees – did he mean “an estate next to” the Arboretum? Surely the Arboretum isn’t going to have houses actually within its treed area? If so, well, was that Jon Stanhope exceeding his PB on dodgy developer deals? Does anyone have the facts?

What’s Your opinion?

My guess is that these will be for the elite, deep thinking people in our midst who will meditate in them.
The arboretum is becoming less of an arboretum and more of a theme park every day.
I wish they would adopt that pointless Siev X “memorial” at Weston Park.
It would fit well.

Remarkable how Labor put up this memorial to the single asylum seeker sinking which happened under the Howard government, yet there have been no memorials to the many sinkings and drownings of queue-jumpers which happened under Gillard and Rudd.

Then again, we are well used to hypocrisy and duplicity by the Left and their sympathisers.

If there’s a buck to be made, then I suspect the answer is “yes”.

Bird houses (nesting boxes) or possum houses perhaps?

I would imagine it is yet another example of quality ABC reporting and the reporter is confused about where Molonglo is located

Facts to back this up please Masquara – claiming to have “caught a quote on ABC 7.30” without any back up is plain and simple trolling.

Imagine how many 400m2 blocks with big houses you could CRAM into the arboretum.

Oh just shut the f up, a**-hat Queen of the Bun! I was ASKING for information and clearly stated that I had caught a moment on-air and didn’t have the full story. You’re doing the trolling.

Sorry, did I hit a nerve?

Maybe that’s because you know in your heart that you were not asking for information, you were putting a misleading statement out in the public domain and asking people to demolish it.

I wasn’t watching 7.30 on Friday night – but I think somehow that if there was such a great story around about a housing estate in the Arboretum, it would have been picked up by now by ABC 666 or the Canberra Times by now.

Thanks for the swearing though – that’s always the moment when a troll loses the argument.

One too many “by nows” I know. Must do better next time.

Interesting moderation policy – the OP swears at me in the early hours of the morning and gets through moderation. I respond without swearing at a sober hour of the day and my comment is still awaiting moderation two hours later.
