More Pressing Priorities Perhaps?

The news that the New South Wales government is going to fork out over $2 billion to demolish and reconstruct a few stadia around the greater Sydney metropolitan area must be a real ‘kick in the pants’ to those whose own areas of need will miss out on that large sum of taxpayer’s money. As Jacob Saulwick writes in The Sydney Morning Herald:

Thankfully, NSW also has flawless transport, a surplus of schools, extravagantly equipped hospitals, more parkland than it needs, a housing market that caters to all of us, and a vocational training system groaning with resources.

If it didn’t, people might start questioning Berejiklian’s priorities…
