Comment on Council poll: Law & order candidates and alcohol restriction opponents top councillor poll, could threaten Mayor by Hal Duell.

@Steve
I appreciate your desire for privacy, and I have never found your comments offensive. In fact, I have enjoyed answering your questions.
But my concern for not using full names is that too often on blogs around the world exchanges do get offensive, if not fully over the top. This threatens the very freedom that I for one find most attractive in the whole Net experience.
My worry is that here in Australia Senator Conroy, who is on record wanting to censor the Net, will force us all to toe his line. Or his successor will.
It’s happening elsewhere. I think China has recently required full names on one of its major social commentary sites. And didn’t the Yanks try hard for more control not so long ago? My prediction is they will try again.
A bit of preemptive good behavior might be called for.

“I have no idea what the Member for Araluen is talking about …”
And that comment is true.


Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
“Every consultation we have done shows the CBD location is the preferred location, and that’s the only location that offers a sense of place and has the space to be able to do it.”
That comment is simply not true.


No sign of council playing ball on Anzac Oval
This is beginning to feel like stalking. What part of “no” doesn’t this man understand?


Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Once again it seems to be a case of our way or the highway.
When this location debate first came up, I was of the opinion that the Desert Park was the right choice. But then the traditional owners spoke up at the council meeting debating to MOU or not to MOU, and the TOs seemed to be united in wanting any gallery to be south of The Gap.
So what’s the problem?
If revitalising the CBD is truly the aim, build flats there, and build a skate park at the river end of Parsons Street, and make the area vibrant again.

Any update from Alex Nelson on the heritage application for the Anzac site?
