Canberra bites back in the SMH's Heckler

Thanks to Andy for the heads up that the SMH’s Heckler column has published a rebuttal to the blatant canberra bashing of earlier in the week.

THE only thing I don’t like about living in Canberra is putting up with people who are new to the city. They are a menace on the cycle paths, of which Canberra has an excellent system. With the correct bike and suitable clothing these paths serve the double purpose of keeping users fit and lessening the reliance on fossil-fuel-fed means of transport.

I’m sure this obsession with us can’t be healthy for the Emerald City.

Touche encore.

“whining, polarised drivel” is exactly the purpose that Canberra was built for. We have a splendid building buried in a hill for this kind of thing.

Amen terubo – but i’d say both of the articles were the kind of whining, polarised drivel that gives Canberra a bad name. Although, some of their comments ring true, both Hecklers come across as abject tossers.

I’m not sure that this ‘rebuttal’ will endear SMH readers to Canberra either. There’s a degree of snottiness about it, that makes me want to approach MrWenholz’ nostrils with a large vacuum cleaner and some protective clothing.
