Re: News & Discussion: Public Transport Service & Policy

"I don't think in five to 10 years time we're going to be building light rail networks. "There is a whole host of new technology that is coming down the pipe very quickly and whether that be electric buses, some sort of autonomous version, hydrogen buses, as well as trackless trams, it's going to p...

I like how it does just blend in and doesn't take away from the GPO or other historical buildings on the street
Agree with this. Also, if the Travelodge Hotel and offices at 42-56 Franklin Street both go ahead too, that will be quite a dense area of the city.

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Well yeh, Im aware. Im arguing against them having electorate offices and being paid as much as they are, plus having a small army or staffers. Isnt it astounding that while they maintain that level of extraordinary spending on the tax payers dime, they increase the cost of living on tax payers? Wh...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

So you're telling me that you can't find a small office to use temporarily while you're being paid a quarter of a million dollars? Of course the government is playing politics. I'm sure if you go back and look at every election Labor won you'd find similar stories of Liberal MP's waiting for their ...

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.
