Who would have thought? Even though pundits predicted it, no-one really considered the implications. The parties that have dominated the post-war political scene will now be frantically crunching gears, throwing the transmission into neutral (and possibly)even reverse in order to pick up the few independents, until now relegated to the wilderness of irrelevancy, and thus form a minority government. Nothing is certain. Our would-be hitch-hikers have a choice of rides to select from. The Greens won’t necessarily go ALP, nor the conservative independents LNP. Regional and philosophical points of view will vie for accommodation. Should be an interesting week – and we thought it would all be over when the campaign ended!
Mostly of interest to Wembley Downs folk who have been missing their local agora for almost two years. The proposed al fresco areas seem to be marked by the low curving balustrades to the middle and left. My church office being just across the road, I can see me setting up my laptop there and having meetings over coffee and croissants! I can feel the ambiance already! I am guessing the opening will be fairly close to the second anniversary of the fire that took out the old centre, although some expect it to be as soon as the end of next month.
