Karma’s a bitch

by

Lucky Council cleared the street to make way for the gallery development that has a projected cost 50% higher than expected.

Oh – and the architects have resigned.

Tim Owen has a little whine in the story too. And I thought he never did anything.

    From the article [Tim Owen quoted]:

    ‘‘When you build a house you don’t borrow money before you know what it’s actually going to cost you.’’…

    …and you don’t destroy a treasured asset to make way for a future pipe dream that you can’t afford to materialise.

    well the silk purse is down the drain and we’re left with the sow’s ear (which actually looked pretty nice before the figs were destroyed).

    Let us never forget! …. BARRY O’FARRELL had the hide to open an invitation only gallery.Where is the money now? Don’t treat me like an uneducated ass! I could see this coming a mile away. Didn’t you? Our council, the cowards, dug themselves into a hole that they couldn’t get out of! So they took the money and ran. Now Jeff: Sort this mess out with your mate ROBBO.Nice Team.Revitalisation: Ha. You haven’t even fixed a derelict pub on the corner of Hunter St. I think you couldn’t organize a picnic in LAMAN St. Oh do we have a LAMAN St ? ….. Hmmm mmm.Food for thought really. Do we still really have an art gallery? I think you’re a dud. And only care about yourself and not the people.We saw that from the last council.You can’t do jack .

    I see Timid Tim was a useless experiment. Despite being now a swinging seat, Newcastle is going nowhere under his stewardship. And now we have the dollar-eyed McCloy to content with. And what’s with taking the monorail that Sydney doesn’t want? Yeah…that’s a good idea. These guys are full of it. And I think you know what they are full of. I’ll be polite and say themselves.
