Newcastle upon Hunter

I would laugh if it wasn't so depressing. Ok, I did laugh. An Australian town makes Spanish comedy tv! It is not in a good way though. I know all about this matter and it is a disgrace. Rum and rebellion (corruption) is still alive and well in New South Wales. You don't need the sound on, as it is in Spanish, and there are subtitles. But you may want to hear his excruciating laugh. I had the sound on and I think it added to the clip. He was just so incredulous, and justifiably so.


Ironically as someone commented, the trams that run the light rail service are Spanish built.

    It is a disgrace and as a Novocastrian born and bred I hope the NSW government and its property developer mates are brought down. To add to the craziness they have the supercars this weekend located in the streets around the historic residential areas of Newcastle.

    1. Cheryl, and it seems both parties are in the developer trough. Yep, that sounds like a really good idea to race cars through residential streets.

  2. Oh dear. And that is one incredible laugh.
    I am pretty certain that our trams (shortly to start operating) are Spanish too.

    1. EC, I think they are Spanish too. It depends very much what is specified when they are ordered as to how good they will be. It is usually a mistake to buy the cheapest.

  4. Oh my what a dreadful laugh.
    Appropriate in one way have a Spanish gig in Australia because of Spanish trains, maybe that is why they did it.

    1. Margaret, I didn't think of that, but could have something to do with it.

  5. I didn't listen, just read the subtitles (it's true, I couldn't be bothered turning on the speakers)
    I have to agree with it, governments are total rubbish when it comes to public transport. What good are more coffee shops when you can't get to them??

    1. River, so true. There was no doubt it was to enable developers to get their hands on the land.
