Zed comes down against public art

By johnboy - 14 April 2011 54

public art

Liberal Leader Zed Seselja has woken up and had a spray at the Chiefly Stanhope’s search for more public art funding.

It’s stealing bread out of the mouths of the struggling families dontcha know!

“This is the extraordinary disconnect Jon Stanhope and ACT Labor have with Canberra households suffering under significant cost-of-living pressures,” Zed said. “Jon Stanhope’s focus isn’t on easing the burden of high housing and rental cost, rates, electricity or parking – it’s on public art and legacy projects.

What’s Your opinion?

Well if the qualification for participating in one of yoru parties is “must support spending taxpayers money on crappy public art” I’m sure your parties are a real hoot!

Gosh I’m envious…

Nah, at our parties we’re all frowning and complaining about ‘the gummint’ wasting ‘my tax dollars’.

Good times!

Zed, make an election promise and you have my vote.

Parties are so pointless when the money could be better spent on health care.

Why did they waste money on balloons? Drab grey is so much better.

I don’t think either of you could distinguish between your own money and somebody else’s.

Therefore, it wouldn’t be wise to attend one of your parties.

No, the qualification for attending one of my parties is ‘not to be a boring old git complaining about the cost of the candles on the cake’.

I couldn’t agree more. Stanhope is blowing money on idiotic legacy projects and things that the general public don’t need or want. He’s getting further and further out of touch with the people of the ACT.

Was he ever in touch?

Thank God someone in there says what a lot of us think. Stop this stupid spending on absolute crap and lets get the money where we need it most……………………………….health care!

Seconded!

This has come as a result of Hopeless asking Katy for more money to spend on more outdoor artworks as the 1% Capital Works budget is now all exhausted.

Maybe they could reallocate some of the funding back to something useful… like the Australian Science Festival… though that won’t leave an ongoing memorial to Hopeless once he expires.

JessP 12:50 pm 14 Apr 11

Yes for Zed!

Enough public art is already in Canberra. Some of it ineresting but a lot of it CRAP. No more vanity projects from his Chiefliness.

May Zed actually listened to the public for a change, nah, he’d be thrown out of the polly union for that. All very well to say you’re against it, but how about some action.

Maybe Zed’s been reading RiotACT – or at least my comments here. Let’s see if he remembers this if (big IF) he gets elected and after the pressure groups have got at him.
