The Herald reported on a community forum where the Lord Mayor said he won’t listen to community groups.

Good on you, Jeff. You tell those placard-waving, smelly Community Members to go and Get A Job or Develop Buildings then come back and see you.

NEWCASTLE City Council will not be swayed by community groups ‘‘that just want something in the lolly shop’’(??) as the city makes budget cuts, lord mayor Jeff McCloy told a community forum this afternoon.

The council held the forum to explain its dire financial position.

The Newcastle Herald has previously reported that the council is facing massive ongoing deficits, and the possibility of insolvency by 2017 if nothing is done.

This is up there with his talk of selling off part of the collection of the Regional Art Gallery.

I’m with Simon Crean.

And speaking of turkeys in local Council, maybe it’s time to stop eating turkey in light of the latest story about factory turkey farming.

I haven’t watched this video and won’t but maybe you should if you think eating turkey from Ingham’s is OK. Wonder how they treat chicken.
