The Canberra Times has swallowed hook line and sinker of a particularly stupid report by Tony Vinson on the distribution of disadvantage.

“The survey found the ACT’s most disadvantaged suburbs following Narrabundah and The Causeway were Kingston, Fyshwick, Majura, Pialligo, Symonston, Braddon, Campbell, Reid, Turner, and Oaks Estate.
So the most advantaged suburbs with the highest numbers of public housing residences are a problem that needs to be addressed??
