If the Republicans want to regain the trust of their conservative base, dumping Speaker Boehner would be a good start I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often

Currong Apartments are about to meet their maker

January 7th, 2015 at 10:40am

Over the last few weeks, the fences have gone up around the Currong Apartments in Braddon, and so the days are numbered for this rather dodgy bit of Canberra.

Interestingly the power is still on in there as some of the lights in the common areas were on went I went by, and could be seen from outside the fence.

Also interesting is that one of the abandoned cars in the carpark was not removed before the fences went up.

And for purposes of comparison, here is a photo taken from Currong St yesterday.

It will be very interesting to see how the demolition takes place as the building is very close to a lot of other residences and many types of quick demolitions would be inappropriate due to the disruption or mess they would cause.

    Hi Samuel,

    Did you blank out that blue car’s # plate, or was it missing?..
    Answer as to how to remove?.

    Select all levels, press DELETE. 😉

    What good timing…I just walked in my front door.

    The number plate was missing, but if you have a look on the car’s front passenger window you can see the “if you don’t remove your car pronto, we will!” notice from the ACT Government. Clearly the left hand is not speaking to the right hand.

    I suppose we could just go for the almighty kaboom hooked up to the delete button…meanwhile a very good afternoon to the ASIO code-breakers who are undoubtedly now trying to unravel some sort of secret message in all of this.
