Better places to build Canberra?

By johnboy - 14 January 2009 84

The Australian has a bit on the latest round of Canberra bashing in the ranks of the Liberal party.

While it seems the Liberals would prefer there be no national capital at all they do discuss other places a capital might have been put.

Assuming that Canberra would be much the same city wherever it went, where would you have liked it to be?

Let’s go crazy here and forget the constitutional limitations.

What’s Your opinion?

It shows how incredibly stupid a large number of voters really are. Bashing Canberra is politically popular. Why though does everyone hate Canberra? Because of the politicians.

No, it’s because we have it better than everyone else. We live longer, work less, get paid more, have decent roads, and have great bushland & recreational facilities. We don’t have a beach, but we get to laugh at the Sydney & Melbourne traffic jams on the nightly news.

I don’t think people know any of that until some Canberran tells them.

They hate the politicians and the bureaucrats and that is all they know about Canberra.

… Actually they seem to have a great deal of difficulty with the roundabouts as well when they come here. I love roundabouts.

And if the boredom of living in Canberra gets us down one Friday night, we can be in the centre of less-boring Sydney in three hours, when it takes some people whole live IN Sydney two hours to get into town.
