The following image comes from the Progress Leader of the 9th May, 2017. It raises innumerable questions as to whether what we are currently witnessing throughout Victoria and in local councils is truly good strategic planning, or straight out political machinations.

Here’s our take on recent events:

  • Wynne’s intervention in Yarra in slicing a proposal down to 10 storeys? It’s his seat and the Greens are on the march
  • Staikos is vulnerable – holding the seat by the skin of his teeth
  • Dimopolous in ‘danger’ also following the outcry against Skyrail and lack of consultation (now confirmed by the Auditor General in his latest reports)
  • Boroondara – strongly Liberal

Thus we get politspeak in spades from the department and the Minister’s office. Please note the comments on Glen Eira carefully!
