Roads to Recovery

Do you see the worst straight off? Is it worst because part of the $1.23 billion Roads to recovery funding is being spent on a no through road? Well yes, but no. I hope there is a witty No U turn sign just inside those Frog doors. Thanks Cimbali. Where is this?roadroadcu

    It is in Kalamunda and I have to give credit to Mr Cimbali for spotting it and reversing at high speed so we could laugh at it. They have been building it for many years and eventually moved in despite it being far from finished – which means I expect it will never be finished.

      Cimbali – can I suggest you get some pics of the delightful ‘Hills Gallery’ at the intersection of Stirk Street and Railway Road? I went past the other day, and noted the sculpture garden (which I know has been there at least 10 years) is looking lovelier than ever. Lamentably, I was unable to stop and take pics myself.

      Anyway, I thought those jokes were out of favour since Kevin Rudd got handed the baton and made things even worse? Where do I stand on unthinking boilerplate pro-refugee jokes? Please tell me so I can fit in, post Kevin07.

              What the fuck is a “big picture change”?

              When I was a student at Curtin recently – when evil Jackboot Johnny was PM – the bleating about treatment of refugees [and therefore implying we need a change of government] was almost unbearable. Both on campus and in the mainstream meeeeja. Also from my lecturers, FFS!

              And no, I wasn’t studying Refugees 100 so shart the fark arp about refugees already, and teach me what you’re paid to teach me.

              They even spent STUDENT GUILD FUNDS so the Guild Veep could travel up to Woop Woop and yell slogans at a barbed wire fence. I shit you not.

                      Just look how this topic came about. A freaking misplaced door handle somehow elicits a snide pro refugee remark. And yet I’m the wackjob when I decide to play along? Good heavens.

                      I think I’ve made some valid points. eg. Rudd’s refugee policy seems to be much more brutal than Howard’s and yet I’m hearing decidedly less howling from the howler monkeys. DECIDEDLY less.
