Happy Birthday Quangers!
(175? Somehow that surprised me, I thought it was less than 150.)

Indeed – it’s not just ready access to naughty plastic bags, or somewhere to go on T&LC picnic day, or “real” pubs (even if yuppified), or slightly less unaffordable housing, or an old style main street which is doing its valiant best to hold out against mall shopping, or for providing easy stereotypes for Canberra’s own upwardly mobile bogans and wannabes to poke fun at, or for being smart enough to keep the political class on their toes – it’s really just for being you, Queanbeyan – you complete us (and vice versa, I reckon).
