I went for a drive to the soon to be ghost town of Tharwa over the weekend.
Of course it is a longer trip than normal as Nero has failed to fix the bridge cutting the village’s most important lifeline to Canberra.
I was speaking to a couple of locals who told me that the primary school had organised an excursion on the last day of school (last year) and when they returned that afternoon the school had been ‘chained and locked’ by Nero’s â€˜imperial guardsâ€™. The students were LOCKED OUT!
They also said that Nero’s guards stayed around the school for a few more days to make sure the good citizens of Tharwa did not â€˜rebelâ€™ and claim their school back.
Well done Stanhope!
