We now have a new Lord Mayor, Sally Capp and I hope she acquits herself well but I fear terribly for our city. Lord Mayor Sally Capp was, until she ran for Lord Mayor, an executive director of the Property Council of Australia. What is that, you wonder? This is a statement on its website.
Almost sounds benign, does it not? At least good for society. Let me describe it my words. It is a developers' lobby group. The tear down that historic building and build a highrise glass box wherever we possibly can and make mega profits while we do so, and cover every piece of fertile land on the outskirts of our city with cheap housing. (bad sentence construction, I know)
And she is now Lord Mayor of our city. Be afraid children, very afraid.
