Everyone Hug a Canberran

By S4anta 11 July 2005 4

The CT is reporting here this morning that Canberrans are
“happy, engaged people who derived joy from living in one of the most beautiful places in the world”
according to Our Glorious Leader. he obviously hasn’t been following the fracas over here about bikes, apostrophes and fog lights (and Pat Carr). But the good news is that Canberrans enjoyed a better quality of life than anyone else in Australia, according to the ABS. If only this could really be qualified by statistics.

However our population needs to grow to continue this great lifestyle we have according to Mr Stanhope, but 74% of the population disagree and thinks Canberra doesn’t need to grow any biggier at all.

And in other news, statistics can be a load of cr@p if given to an idealistic spin machine, hell bent on making their master look talented.

Al said and done, it’s a welcome respite from the Canberra bashing that so often plagues the media (even in Canberra).

And since when did 74% make any difference to the Comrade?

Correct. But they are contradicted by stats released by the The Australia Instistute which they have also pitched in.

True they can be, but these are ABS stats, so Stanhope isn’t their master.
