Pert City Summit

I attended The Perth City Summit, held at 8:30 am on Saturday, (presumably in order to avoid serving free piss). Fare was scones and mini croissants. Not a mini quiche to be seen! Teh second string Verity James was in the chair, i.e. James Lush. Or was he playing barrel girl to the newsreader that I didn’t recognise? Vo?Voss? Something. There was a palpable anti She-Ra Scaffidi air to the event, falling just short of hisses. It wasn’t all a total waste of time. A lot of mush, like John Carey’s by the numbers played as Ted Talk lite “inspiration”, and a lot of worthy but meaningless proposals. Upliftingly, if I may put it that way, the cablecar was lolled off the agenda. There were some actual specifics that could perhaps get done amongst the “have a strategy for this” or  “be more of this”. It was at the Convention Centre. A Segway tour went by. In summary, everything from red tape to parking fees for events seemed to be She-Ra Scaffidi’s fault somehow. Things I did like:
Night Cat Bus
Swimming Pool in city
Indigenous Mayor (our table)
Night Mayor, (because I could totally be that)

    I get it, this is why the end of twop approaches. You’re part of the machine now.

    Nice little earner for the ALPBC B list by the sounds of it. Tough gig waiting for something to open up at the staff co-op. Harder than becoming a new Australian wicket keeper.

    I must ask Dad why he left if he ever calls me.

    ‘ The cable car has always been with us … it is only waiting for the right moment to appear and take over … ‘

    ‘ The present-day cable car refuses to die … ‘

    ‘ The cable car returned as soon as artists started to come to closer grips with reality than naturalistic representation permitted … ‘

    Apologies to Bjork , Tristan Tzara , and Siegfried Giedion but some things never do change

      Not even Dada could shake up Teh Pert. John Day would’ve buried it.


      • Zuben says:

        There are alleged and secret plans to bury the foreshore drive along langley park between causeway and narrows bridge ( site of present day segway processions ) so it may be surmounted by 24+ storey mixed use residential redevelopment at water s edge .

        A sort of ‘ clean sand ‘ inner city apartment lifestyle which , as at e-quay its forerunner , will become attractively and self-fulfillingly venetian during our certain and future acqua altas .

        That is to say , vibrant .

        Hope this was lolled off the agenda too but was it even on it in first place ?

        The late Day probably fancied cablecars between casino and kalamunda , but what harm can he do now ?

    This is the way the TWOP ends, not with a bang, but a whimper


  5. Zuben says:

    What do the beijing olympics , the DA for brookfield place , and she ra have in common ?


  6. Sir, it is in the nature of things that if the person at the helm ,on the bridge , should be in the brig , then stormy waters are ahead with the ship adrift. Thus with the august , prestititigious position of President of the United States as with Lord Night Mayor of Perth. Are they to blame for everything , most certainly yes and esprit de corpse will not be restored amongst the ranks until they are removed.

    A swimming pool in the city…whatever will they think of next.


  8. Big Ramifications says:

    Verity’s getting a bit long in the tooth now, isn’t she? Her whole demeanour has been listless and uninspiring lately.

    This PCC pow wow needed more Tammy.
