hi all didn't really know where to post this thread but I figure here is as good a place as any.
So I had a fight with the garbage man the other day because he refused to pick up my second bin, becase it was not "an official council bin" the bin
in question was the exact same size, shape and colour as a regulation bin, he tells me to contact the council to reques another.
So I do, at which point I am informed that it will take my time in the filling out and processing of many forms and regular payments of hundreds of
now correct me if i'm wrong but is not the reason we pay taxes and home owners pay rates for things just like GARBAGE COLLECTION???
I mean if one could clearly see the money being spent elswhere perhaps then, but around here it clearly is not. The Bruce Highway which extends all
along the queensland coast is in a horrible condition, people have been complaining for an upgrade for over 10 years and still nothing is done. people
die on this road WAY more frequently than that of a tollerable level.
and unfortunatlety on the last state election a bunch of fools decided to vote Liberal, and now we have Mr. Campbell Newman for premier who has
already cut thousands of jobs (mainly in the public sector) and is thretening to cut literally HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF JOBS IN TOTAL!
If Tony Abbot gets in the big seat, were all finished, especially disabled pensioners like me.
anyone else living in the state have an opinion, please share.
