Are you Waiting for Housing? Not Any More

By che 19 April 2005 6

Jacqui Burke has put out this media release about the review of ACT Housing’s waiting list. She goes on about how the waiting list hasn’t been reviewed in 6 years and asking why the Minister and his department are coming out with differing statements, but if you were on the waiting list then found yourself somewhere to live 12 months ago (suitable or not) then you’ll probably be taken off the waiting list as you obviously don’t need it anymore.

What’s Your opinion?

automatically purge everyone on the list over a year,

then purge everyone in housing who CAN afford to fend for themselves.

then maybe a few emergency cases can be looked after.

As well as having a nasty whiney voice (Deb Foskey, that is ) like her predecessor Saint Kerrie. Maybe they teach them to speak like that – pseudo caring/compassionate, since they’re speaking to people with the IQ of ten year olds (as compared to Greens, that is).

You mean the erstwhile Deb Foskey MLA.

Complains about things, but not important things…

Years ago there was a Steve Martin movie called “The Man with 2 Brains’. Good ole Burkey could headline “The Woman With No Brain”.
