PP I agree on the costs
This is being built out my way http://www.bluemountainsgazette.com.au/story/5271297/photos-nepean-river-bridge-on-target-for-october/?cs=1810
Anyone who does the river walk knows a better crossing on the Nth was needed but how can it cost that? Why does it talk so long?
The cost blowouts are related to the time it takes I reckon. And I further reckon they are no accident.
Some of the costs put forward to perform public works in Sydney are not only outrageous, but they seem to escape any scrutiny.
I was all for the upgrade of the Stadiums until they started mentioning the costs.
The cynic in me thinks that there are some players here who cannot wait to get their grubby hands on some of the taxpayers cash.
With thinks like Stadium upgrades, the NBN, NDIS, West Connex and a whole raft of multi-billion dollar "projects" going on, is it any wonder it is nigh unaffordable to raise a family with a mortgage these days.
We have got to start questioning these costs.
There was one with the NDIS the other day and them paying $1.3 million for "strategic advice" that was picked up in the media.
I would have thought if you employ execs on big bucks then it is implied that the taxpayers get "strategic advice" as part of the execs package. Apparently not
Anyway back to the League.
As a Roosters fan I can tell you that there is not a lot of good feeling toward the coach about the treatment of Mitchell Pearce and the loss last night has done nothing to improve that feeling.
That market they have on the first coach to get the bullet - might find a big surprise if Easts don't start winning games pretty soon.
