It’s funny what you can see when you’re in Dickson around lunch time. I was having lunch in Dickson on Wednesday when a group of people from ACTPLA (ACT Planning and Land Authority…you may recall them from this post and this post) walked past me. Just like last time they made eye contact and seemed to halt their conversation…then as they walked directly past me they all started muttering something about the Fyshwick Epicentre debacle, they appeared to be muttering something about it being a good thing, but I suspect they were merely making silly comments in an effort to make me write incorrect information…after all, they appeared to recognise me (and not for the first time).
It was only a few minutes later that minister for planning (amongst other things) Simon Corbell walked past…about twenty questions crossed my mind, luckily for him he was talking (or pretending…it is hard to tell) on his mobile phone, and I was too interested in my lunch to be bothered asking a pointless man a set of questions to which he would only give pointless answers anyway.
I used to work for the ACT government…I’m glad I don’t work for them any more.
