Another Wheely Bin? No No No

By johnboy - 1 August 2005 23

Vicki Dunne interrupted her Sunday rest to put out a media release calling for an extra wheely bin for organic waste to be foisted upon the households of Canberra at vast expense.

John Hargreaves is, thankfully, having none of it.

The current regime has transformed the kitchens of the conscientious into waste transfer stations, and frankly any more complexity is going to exceed my own “Can’t be arsed with it” threshold. Two bins Vicki. No more.

ever thought that the reason there is no bus service to the airport could be sour grapes on the part of the government?

Stanhope does take great delight in thumbing his nose at the Federal government. And remember, this is the champion of public transport, except when it happens to be not to his liking, then he doesn’t want to know about it.

Whatever the reason, its simply ludicrous to think that the capital of Australia doesn’t even have a bus to its airport.

ACT ‘self-government’ is a joke.

Not only can any Territory legislation be overruled by the Federal Parliament, but the National Capital Authority sticks its nose in whatever planning matter it feels like, *and* has the right to arbitrarily approve developments in areas under their control — like the airport.

No wonder there’s no bus services that run to the airport — as far as the ACT government’s concerned it’s just a way to give money to the Feds.
