Lite Greens?

By johnboy 27 May 2009 27

The Canberra Times reports on how Our Brave Leader was seriously having a go at the Greens yesterday, trying to paint them as just more of the cross bench rubbish which, over the years, has stupidly prevented him from doing whatever he pleases.

The flash point seems to be watering the small patch of grass in Kingston which he is determined to annihilate for reasons best known to himself. (Although if they do clearfell the inner south’s urban forest and demolish Manuka Oval residents might start to wonder if there’s some class warfare going on).

He appears to have been particularly stung by Caroline Le Couteur’s recent observation that there’s never a shortage of water for the unwanted arboretum.

Greens parliamentary convenor Meredith Hunter appears to be used to these tantrums and isn’t taking it too seriously.

It just shows that Canberra is a town with too much media and not enough news when grass becomes a major political issue.

Tanbark is one of the worst things for hidden sharps also.

Was going to comment on it somehow, it’s ridiculous. Turf’s gone down there umpteen million times, and then crowds and a truck destroy it during the Multicultural Festival.

Rinse repeat…

On the subject of grass (and the absence of it), has anyone noticed the mess that is City Walk, at the Akuna Street end? The grass there used to be green and provide a really nice reprieve from the concrete everywhere else – but sadly, it too has been left to die a (very) unsightly death.

I agree with what sepi said too. And without the shrubs etc, its easy for us as parents on a sunday morning to pick up the bottles/glasses etc and other detritus from Saturday night idiots who can’t seem to find the bins themselves to make the space a safe one. And a place where you can drink your coffee and appropriately supervise the kids? heaven!

Of course there is no grass at Charnwood shops, it’s all car park!

There’s grass at Charnie, you just gotta know who to talk to.
