The Greens have put up their media release on the plight of the community groups in the Griffin Centre as their building gets demolished, they get moved into temporary accomodation, and then they get moved into more permanent digs.

When the building dedicated to the community groups is getting knocked down to make millions for a developer you’d think the costs of all those moves would be borne by that developer right?

Well you’d be wrong under this government. Anyone who’s ever had to move an office will physically recoil at the idea of a double move. Let alone the neglect of disability issues which seems to have gone on.

Put not your trust in princes.

And what hypocrisy – didn’t I see a newspic of the Dear Leader and a Pearly Griffin something-or-other (while the actual griffin Centre is reduced to rubble.
