  • We get out STADIUM!!

    Finally its announced!!!

    ​​​​​​https://www.news.com.au/sport/footba...a7b37b108ddfdb

    Now you know what the hold up was- despite the constant denials, it turns out their budget forecast was way off! Well who would have thought?? I can tell you if they were going to find a extra 100 million then Lend Lease would have built it and would have been well into it by now.

    At the risk of making it political (and upsetting Bondi Boy), the NSW Liberal government have been a monumental disaster when it comes to infrastructure cost analysis-the Sydney Tram project mess should have been enough . They are very lucky that the opposition Labor party haven't got a clue either.

    I was going to ring up Alan Jones and ask how the farmers would be feeling after learning the government found an extra 100 million for the rebuild. However with the constant delay of todays announcement it seems the phoney "voice of the people" has gone on holidays. Geez what a co-incidence. Maybe he is with The Phantom Scomo in Hawaii. When the going gets tough....the tough go on holidays. Im sure he will resurface for Sharks homes games and other sporting events to continue his legacy quest of becoming a poor mans Bob Hawke.

    bondi boy does not get upset.
    He just crosses his arms, leans against the wall, and calmly says "listen to yourself" instead of getting angry, shouting, and throwing punches.

    $100m is 'chicken feed'. Moving the Powerhouse museum to Parra will be costing $1bn.
    The original guesstimate of $729m wasn't far off the mark for a project of that size...and is 2% of the state's construction budget. That's 2%.
    A contract has now been signed for a fixed price...love those fixed price contracts. Gladys should be signing more of those.
    $100m...no worries, the dimwits still using mobile phones illegally in their vehicles will be paying that in fines very quickly once the grace period finishes.

    Sydney Tram /Light Rail project is a "climate change" one...you know "ban fossil fuels now", "coal is evil", "renewables now", "electric cars only"...to appease the "climate emergency, we want action now" lot.
    Trams and buses, transport choices for the People.

    Alan Jones, finished on air for the year only recently...had to have some 'procedures' done [he has a bad back and has had a brain tumour in the past]. He's entitled to a vacation. ""King Kyle" is also on holidays.
    Alan has been attacking the Federal Liberal govt and ScoMo for months, calling them/him "arrogant" and a few other choice names...getting after them for not doing enough for farmers in the drought.
    ScoMo on vacation?...gee, got young children now on school holidays, parliament isn't sitting, had a big year, family man, takes a holiday...no big deal.
    There is a Deputy Prime Minister to run the country in his absence, also there are phones, computers, video-conferencing etc.

    Fires...there's a NSW Premier/Govt.
    There's a QLD Premier/Govt.
    Fire Chiefs galore.
    Guess ScoMo could always return and toss a bucket of water at the megafire.

      Well if its chicken feed then lets find another 100 million, or 2% of the states construction budget and use it to support the farmers!

      In the end before knocking down the old one, get a plan drawn up for a new one, get a cost on it and lock it in. Don't say you've done it all then hurry it all through to get demolished because some disc jockey who is on the board of the SCG trust wanted it done before the election........ just in case Labor won and cancelled the project. Its 50% corruption and 50% incompetence.

      Im no fan of either major party, nor the Greens. I just hate them pissing tax payers money up against a wall.

          The Phantom Scomo in Hawaii.
          Worry not.
          The radio news today stated that ScoMo is returning from holidays today...and that, para; "Only 32% of the population know who he is...know who is the leader, Prime Minister of the country" LOL
          Mostly Alan Jones/2GB listeners, my guess.
          Maybe the rest of the country is, well, you know.

              Jeez BB, you should get upset. Ya can't just waive two, billion dollar, complete cock ups away with a blithe "chicken feed" remark. Can you imagine the stick that News Ltd would have given the ALP if all of this was down to them? The Tele went off at the cost blowout yesterday but it won't get a mention come election time. But at least we now know where you get your ideas (after all a working class pensioner Tory is not a common thing) and you really need to sack Jonesy, Ray and the Tele - they're not your mates. Read "Jonestown" by Chris Masters - there you see the ratbag version of Jonesy in full cry.
              Just a heads up Random, the ALP opposed the demolition of the twenty year old stadium at the election and they did not become the Government. I know that you are probably trying to be even handed but what "clue" are they supposed to have? These cock ups are totally owned by the Libs - the best managers not!

                30 yr old stadium.
                Old hat, old design, lifts old, slow, 'useless'.
                Women's toilets, horrid...super horrid, women lined up for 'miles' to use them...how embarrassing for them.
                Crowd got soaked every time it showered let alone rained with a wind behind it.
                etc etc etc.
                We like women to go to the footy, dress nicely, look nice, be feminine...then provide them with horrid toilets to use, long lines, seats in the rain...then wonder why they'd rather stay home.
                We now have women's footy teams, need change rooms for women.
                The new stadium is being built with a lifespan of 30 years. [govt]
                Alan...son of a dairy farmer "with a sandshoe on one foot and a jam tin on the other".
                Ray, grew up in Housing Commission at Dundas Valley, his mum and the kids 'hiding from the Waltons man' [coming to get a payment]...Ray has told all on air.
                They both have been no 1 in the radio ratings for decades.

                  Well the point of the article is ......

                  "What all this shows is that there is one set of rules for ordinary people and entirely another for large, politically connected corporations"

                  Yes there is a particular political party who still "believes" in trickle down economics and has consistently passed on tax cuts to corporations....i wont go into that

                  Its nothing to do with the state government not following any line due diligence before starting the project.....and then blatantly lying to the public throughout.

                    And your point is? Ray was Dogs caller who reads out the Tele on his "show". Al is an often out of control serial ratbag whose ego has cost the NSW taxpayer millions in rubbish Criminal Court appeals. Neither are journalists, they're entertainers - shock jocks - and their popularity says more about the intelligence and awareness of the audience than anything else. The worst thing about them is that they are heavy artillery for the Libs who really aren't on your side. It's the Boss' party, the Party of Capital that opposes any policy that might be of benefit to working people like you - Medicare for example - I assume that you like that? They're all about preserving the privileges of the relatively small minority and that minority would definitely not include you but they thank you for your unwavering support no doubt.
                    And another heads up to Random - Scomo might dream of enjoying Hawkey's popularity but he's not for the "poor man" - his personal brand of Evangelism concludes that wealth indicates that a person has found favour with "God" and the poor, by extension, have displeased him. Apart from the gun buy backs you'd struggle to name any Lib policy ever that benefited the ordinary bloke.

                        So you're saying the lifts were slow, the female toilets needed upgrading , and we need females change room (which there already is) . Ever thought of renovations? These aren't a reason to spend a billion dollars to knock down the entire perfectly fine complex.

                        Well its all done and we are getting the you beaut new stadium no matter what .......so i cant wait to see all the women in the new stadium dressed up like attending a fashion expo. Most of the females i see at any sporting event prefer casual supporters gear..... so this dressing up to " be feminine" will be a big change!

                        Get the Alan Jones violin out! A man who has continually personally attacks anyone who dares disagree with his view. The same guy who supports Falou's homophobic comments......yet was once arrested in England for having a root with another guy in a public toilet. His double standards are astonishing. He's a manipulating bully who thinks of himself as the voice of the common man to justify his guilty conscience .
