Crikey panders to southsiders

By Kerces 18 July 2005 28

Crikey had the following in their sealed section today :

6. Unsubstantiated tips & rumours
On Friday night there were drinks at DIMIA to farewell Bill Farmer and two other ousted senior staffers. Apparently the tears and un-PC comments were flowing. Farmer had written a poem called “Bastille Day at Belco” (DIMIA is located in the awful Canberra suburb of Belconnen), which involved him and the other two being taken to the guillotine by Amanda the executioner – very well received apparently!

So what do we think of Belco being described this way?

What’s Your opinion?

I think the phrase “awful Canberra suburb” could pretty much apply to the entire city; North, South, centre. Dead heart; desolate suburbs. (I live in an undisclosed Canberra ‘burb)

yeah – I didn’t really know the way…. it may not have actually been desperation to get out… it may have had more to do with the fact that I was attracted to the pretty liquid in the glass sitting next to the kero heater…

You drank kero to get out of Cooma?

Wouldn’t have been easier to walk, or crawl?

when I was two I was desperate to get out of cooma that I drank kerosine

North Cooma: “Welcome to Bumf*ck nowhere”

Sorry to offend anyone who likes it down there, but it is pretty ordinary, even for hillbillies.
