in the Ranks: Australian Council's Run Amuck, by Greg
"Media Man" Tingle will remove the smirks!
What do you hate about your
indeed is the question as "big brother"
continues to creep further to your front door.
you gladly pay $152 to park in your very own street?!
councils have long been the scourge of Australian
easy to argue that the bad rap they have been given
is well deserved.
are at time a hive for corruption of the highest level.
the past few years many NSW councils have been put
under the microscope due to leaks of corruption and
misappropriation of funds, tax payers funding private
interests of directors, mates rates, big fat contracts
being feeded off to mates of the "in crew"
and the list goes on.
look at a few basic examples:
Massive water sewer problems, heath concerns
For Development! How much did those post code
Oasis In the East - Maroubra Bay Hotel pollution
Maroubra and Malabah Sewer Beach!
Brown Bombers - Brown Nosing some businesses and residents
- booking Community TV guests and presenters on TV
Lack of parking in Streets such as Waterview Street,
Balmain. No other option than to park "illegally"
Where's that boarder supposed to run?
Massive Crime Levels
inspiration for this basic piece came from seeing
misjustice first hand whilst living at both Maroubra
Beach and Balmain.
you believe that just 1 week after moving to Balmain
I received a parking ticket infringement from parking
outside my place, as one night there was no parking
left in my street, so I parked on a corner, and when
I went to move my car the next day I have the long
yellow envelope attached to the car. (I am writing
to complain, and let them know what the situation
is, and that if they don't do the right thing it will
cost them dearly).
so called councils attacking the community at their
front door, in urban sprawled community environments!
$152 to park at your residence. Stick it where the
sun don't shine you bastards!
look forward to meeting these scum of Leichhardt council
and telling them face to face what cowards and poor
excesses for human beings they are.
guys, I won't be buying your Australian Local Government
Guide for $495 or more. Blood suckers!
you have a grievance with your local council? Tell
us, and we will together bring down these scum
in the ranks is right. Oh, hire the documentary on
tells us that there are a few more rats yet to exterminate,
but we now have the weapons!
