I can’t resist adding the following to the comment mix on how to get going in the wrong direction.

Real Action in the wrong direction?
Remember when Big Tobacco seemed untouchable?
Well, plain packaging was upheld by the High Court today.
I say beware Big Alcohol.
You, too, are reachable.
Lead the way, or be told.
What’s it gonna be?

Real Action in the wrong direction?
I can’t comment on a floor price, but others certainly have a lot to say, both pro and con.
Volumetric taxation means taxing the alcohol in alcohol. Seems to be a no-brainer to me. If the price goes up, the price goes up. Or lower the tax.
But labeling with a suitably graphic warning regarding the risk of drinking while pregnant, especially in the first trimester, is without doubt a no-brainer. Make it as ugly and as scary as the tobacco attack ads. Foetal alcohol damage is forever.
I’ll repeat that – foetal alcohol damage is forever!

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.

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?
