Comment on Town planning: A commission for the people? by Matt Lemmens.

It seems that there is an army of bureaucrats out there, all with huge resources to secure their own position / seat yet contribute little logical positive development.

Indecent assault, home invasions
At 7am this morning I was stopped cycling along Larapinta Drive near Milner Road by a small group of kids and told to hand over my bike. I ignored them and rode on. 100 meters further I looked back and they were harassing a young tourist female walking into town. They then separated when I headed back towards them.

The Yippy board are well versed in selecting 3M heads.
Should they, the board members, miss out on certain benefits, there is always another 3M to be introduced as principal.

Cruising The Alice like the Queen
A guy is driving back from Adelaide and he sees a sign in front of a road house 90 klm from Alice Springs: ‘Talking Dog For Sale.’ He stops and enters and asked the owner about the dog. He tells him the dog is in the backyard. 
The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking dingo sitting there. 
‘You talk?’ he asks. 
‘Yep,’ the dingo replies. 
After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’ 
The dingo looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. 
In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders because no-one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. 
I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running.
But the jetting around really tired me out and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.
I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.
I got married, had a mess of puppies and now I’m just retired.’ 
The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. 
‘Ten dollars,’ the guy says.
‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’ 
‘Because he’s a Bullshitter. He’s never been out of the yard!’
