Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

I was clearly being somewhat facetious re: the Olympics being a poor man's world cup. That said, the football world cup is bigger than the Olympics and hosting it would be huge for Australia.

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

I'm not sure which Labor person I heard on radio this morning who actually gave the electorate credit for understanding Labor's policies, and rejecting them. He said the public had understood what was proposed, and didn't like it, so Labor should go back to the drawing board and come up with someth...

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

They're just a pissant version of the Olympics, which in itself is just a poor man's football world cup. Hopefully Australia bids on the latter sometime in the medium-term future and Adelaide can host matches for it.

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

Only Labor and their minions are out of touch. Hopefully Albanese takes the leadership and gets Labor back to their basics. Lol why? Because they offered an in-depth policy agenda including more for education, health etc. through closing absurd tax loopholes (and a major contributor to the structur...

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

I spoke to someone earlier this year with a bit of internal knowledge of United Communities, they reckon stage 2 will likely be a couple of years off. That said, let's hope it's sooner rather than later.

Importantly, I'll have to go back and see what the hell the Libs promised SA.
Did they promise much anywhere beyond retaining franking credits and negative gearing?

I guess one thing is almost certain - there won't be federal money now for light rail in Adelaide 'til at least 2022.

Re: The Federal Politics Thread

But what did the Libs do with the money? They set about to embark on the biggest middle class social welfare subsidies of all time that set Australia in debt for years. Baby bonuses, middle class tax breaks, family allowances for the rich etc etc. Exactly right - which has helped create long-term s...

You're either trolling or just incredibly dumb if you think Labor are "communist." Save it for AdelaideNow comments.

The site at 145 Grote St. is under contract. You'd imagine due to its prominent location to see something built there in the medium term.

I quite like it but agree with Jaymz about the top half not looking as good as the bottom half. Hopefully they at some stage soonish go forward with stage 2 behind this.
