Giulia Jones takes up cudgels against ‘ol dick ‘n balls

The Liberals’ Giulia Jones is making a push for Canberra’s playgrounds to be made more to her liking.

Playgrounds across Canberra are in need of a spruce up and they should offer more for mums and dads while providing a learning environment to boost fitness and health, Member for Molonglo Giulia Jones said today.

“Today in the Legislative Assembly I’ll be moving a motion to highlight the importance of playgrounds for families across Canberra’s suburbs and their role in promoting active lifestyles for children and adults alike,” Mrs Jones said.

“I’m calling on the government to fence a series of playgrounds across the ACT so parents and carers can take children to the park and have the peace of mind that they’re safe while playing.

Might need to push them rates higher still to pay for it, but a case can be made we happily concede.

And then she comes to this:

“Many playgrounds in Canberra are also in need of renewal and I’m also calling on the government to paint dilapidated equipment and remove graffiti from playgrounds, which often includes crude images.

Good luck with that we say.

I don’t think it’s realistic to expect every playground to be fenced, but as a community the provision of some fenced playgrounds would be a kindness to parents who don’t get the perfectly normal child that some here think everyone is blessed with, or those parents with more than one toddler to manage.

Hopefully the naysayers will one day find themselves responsible for a child with autism. Such paragons of concentration would be well suited to the task of keeping the child safe.

It would be lovely to be able to take kids to the playground and actually chat to another adult and not panic that the kids are in the road or down the street.

So, cages then.
Do you also attach leashes when in public, give them pills on long car voyages, and attach flea collars when you visit the coast?
