Re: Murray Bridge | Developments & News

Monarto is 10km from Murray Bridge ... plenty of space there.

But 8km from the current abattoir makes me think it will be north of town.

Great response.
I take it since you've taken to having a dig at me you're giving up trying to defend politicians wasting tax payers money and being over paid?
Nah. I've decided you're not worth the effort.

Re: The SA Politics Thread

I have no idea where he lives, whether he is complaining about having to drive too far to his office, or whether he wants an office in the electorate because his home is not. He's complaining on behalf of his constituents, that they now have to go outside their electorate to get to his office, due ...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

They should start by cutting their offices. What in a building the size of Parliament house, they don't have room for 69 offices? I'm sure they could share. Didn't the Liberals say we have a budget emergency in SA? Our kids are stuffed into classrooms. Why can't politicians be stuffed into offices?...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Metro Trains

There's no reason for Hawthorn station to be reopened unless Unley Park shuts down for some reason. It's too close to UP and Mitcham stations and almost surely due to redudancy, shut down in 1995. A station right on Cross Road is also of more use than a suburban back street. Actually IIRC it was du...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Because these politicians should show a bit of humility once in a while instead of crying like spoiled brats. They are on the tax payers dime. He's on a quarter of a million dollars a year. I'm sure he can find a short term alternative. ??? And you would do that, in his position, when others are ha...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Leon Bignell is fed up about not having a local electorate office — so much so he’s threatening to report the State Government to the United Nations for “quelling democracy”. The Labor MP was returned as the member for Mawson in last year’s state election. Mr Bignell is still in his former electora...

:wallbash: Oops - he moved to Elizabeth when he was five. Thanks for the correction. Was I right that he started performing at the Largs Pier Hotel?
He didn't start there, but it was certainly a major factor in the growth of the band.

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

I have to admit I was blown away by the election result. The Government, which seemed so far out of touch with the electorate, apparently wasn't.

Although in reality, I suspect NTRabbit is correct. Our children will be so proud of us :(

He did so many great things for this country. We all carry a memento of Bob Hawke in our wallets - our Medicare cards. Think of him next time you use it.

Re: SA Economy

Labor gave us AO and rightly or wrongly the NRAH. Plus a couple of freeways, several road underpasses and rail overpasses, fixed Goodwood and Torrens junctions, a much enlarged convention centre, O'Bahn extension into the city, extended the railway system to Seaford and started electrification, got...

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

I've just been notified by the ALP that some time today the millionth pre-poll vote will be cast.
Pre-poll voting records have been smashed this year, with 2 weeks still to go until the election.

[U/C] Re: Uniting Communities | 68m | 19 Levels | Mixed Use

I don't know if im missing something, but wasn't the underside of the exposed levels supposed to be some kind of wood or brown colour? Can anyone point me to whats happening with that? From memory, it does look brown/timber when you're at street level and looking at it. Just looks dark in the photo.
