The old Angus and Robertson by the Merry Go Round was one of the worst book shops it has ever been my misfortune to step foot in.
Brendan Smyth now brings news that the site of that pox on literacy is to be the new Civic location for the Labor Club.
Brendan is aghast that a licenced club is to be allowed above ground in Civic. Which would appear to miss the point that to the average punter the legal status of the liquor licence is at best a curiousity, and many bars in civic are above ground.
That no-one wants to drink at a Liberal Club is indeed a tragedy, that wheels would appear (note: appear) to have been greased for a Club with commercial ties to the Government is a broader concern.
As usual Brendan has buried his lead.
