Known to each other, or random attack?
Nothing like investigative journalism. Nothing.

Investigative journalism? In Canberra?? My poor, poor misguided fellow. That couldn’t possibly be allowed. That would hurt far too many vested interests and ruin too many cosy deals in the our bubble city. It could also lead to a change of local government too.

And embarrass ministers in the Federal government.

My guess is that Canberra journalists prefer to shop at the Canberra Centre or Belconnen Mall as those places have lights in the carparks showing them where to find a place to park.

Finding a parking spot at Woden or Tuggeranong is probably beyond their investigative ability.
