Byron’s new road: the good and not so

After more than 30 years of talk, debate, disagreements, tears and political gridlock, Byron Bay has a new road to divert traffic from the CBD to the southern end of town.

The citizens of NSW are quite familiar with politician’s snouts being in the trough.

So it is sad to see the demise of Barry O’Farrell who Tony Abbott quite rightly portrays as blameless and ‘a man of honour’.

  1. Barry & Tony are great surfing Buddies, They go surfing (board riding I suppose) almost daily on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, I suppose Abbot would call him a man of honour. Well It would appear that there wasn’t anything left to do (wine, notes,phone calls) doesn’t take much to figure………………..

  2. Why would you vote either for the red ties or the blue ties? Neither can be trusted. We’ve had Sir Lunchalot (Labo{U}r) then Obede then,… then…, then,… now O’Foundout (LNP)!! Is Cat Hodgepot (LNP) next? Give the Greens or Palmer United or the Sex Party a go in March 2015 – you can’t do any worse!!
