Scotty and Nige the third most liked thing in Canberra?

Taking internet polls too seriously is one of the more foolish things one can do.

That hasn’t stopped Joy Burch from announcing the top ten and top 100 entries from the “Like Canberra” voting process.

People nominated almost 14,000 reasons why they like living in the ACT. These ‘likes’ were sorted into a number of categories, and earlier this year the community was asked to vote on their most special things about Canberra.

“After two months of polling, where almost 135,000 votes were received, we have finally arrived at our ‘Top100’. The list includes an amazing variety of people’s favourite places, activities and experiences – a real indication that there is so much to do and see in our city.”

Canberra’s ‘Top Ten’ favourite things, in order from 1 to ten are:
1. Floriade/Night Fest
2. Fantastic views of the mountains
3. Scotty and Nige from 104.7
4. Skyfire
5. Summernats
6. Australian War Memorial
7. Questacon
8. National Zoo and Aquarium
9. Old Bus Depot Markets
10. Brodburger

When was Charnwood removed?

… so they could substitute “Engaged and educated populace with progressive views and a truly open attitude to diversity”. Working class Charny just isn’t PC enough.

Weren’t ‘we’ voting on the previous list of top 100 things? This list, as given above does not contain Charnwood at all. Yet it was on the list we were asked to vote on, as Ben_Dover’s comment (#21) makes clear.

When was Charnwood removed?

Or have I got this totally wrong, and is this a new list of all possible attractions?

I really don’t understand. Am I being thick? I understand the Senate, but not this.

An FOI request would bring up some interesting information about the process I’m sure.

I’m going to use this to explain how Brodburger got up there.

Or possibly that the kind of patron that would call upon Brodburger do not read The RiotACT.

Curious about how “awesome CSS/PSS scheme” didn’t get a guernsey.

Scotty and Nige V PSS?

I know which way I’d vote.

When I look at these results I tell myself that there are a mischievous number of Canberrans who like to take the piss, but then deep down I think I know the truth.

Sorry to see the merry-go-round didn’t make it.

LOL I have a cousin in Adelaide who totally agrees with the “tap water is better than bottled spring water” vote, she gets me to send bottles of cbr water to her……….. lol

Am I the only one here to suspect Scotty and Nige (or their mates) of saturation polling?

“The lakes” should have had in parenthesis: except when it floods, someone dies in them, algae shuts them, sewage from Queanbo flows into them, residents from Yarralumla/Kingston complain and ruin them for everyone, sailing!

Oi! Our shit doesn’t stink…

Brodburger? Two dopes from a terrible radio station? Summernats?

Either Canberra is Bogan Central or a disproportionate amount of bogans like voting in online polls. I hope it’s the latter.

I just hope the govt sees how many things like ‘fantastic views of the mountains’, ‘being surrounded by green space’, ‘fresh air’, ‘nature parks and reserves on your doorstep’, ‘calm and peaceful suburbs’, there are in the top 100, and decides to stop messing this wonderful town up with faux, cultural cringe-like vibrancy.

In the unlikely event we ever meet, could you please show me your beige?

There’s nothing beige about Canberra’s vistas, Poetix.

How on earth did we all forget to include Canberra’s incredible sunsets?

This must be ironic, considering the increased traffic risks associated with driving at sunset.

Only people who live in Belco have to drive into the sunset …
