We all know how high profile Greens like Bandt and Di Natalie are out of touch with reality and live in their own world , however the latest attempt by unknown Green councillors on the Melbourne City Council takes Green philosophy to an even greater level of stupidity.
Councillor Rohan Leppert on Tuesday proposed a motion before council that the annual Melbourne Cup Parade through the Melbourne CBD on Cup Eve should not be held and that ratepayers should not be helping to fund a “cruel” industry.
The motion was lost 7-3.
I do not know how that motion would have gone over with all those ratepayers in the CBD, the vast majority would be retailers or food vendors, who benefit by those attending the parade.

Running is too strenuous in your physical condition oneone. You should try yoga, less stressful on your heart.

Back to the content of my post, a bit more on councilor Rohan Leppert .


The fact he campaigned for Adam Bandt was enough for me to turn off my corn flakes this morning. No doubt he did not back the winner of the Melbourne Cup and is dirty on the racing industry, however he
seems to be an "arty" type of person, at one time stood for mayor and if he had won he would made history in Melbourne to be elected as the first openly gay lord mayor .

Since when has Adam Bandt being a Greens member on the Melbourne City Council ? Green members of that council proposed the cancellation of the Melbourne Cup Eve Parade, that was the content of my initial post.

Well Bandt got a big mention in your post Bob.  But more importantly consider this word or concept: narrative.

You're not sure what it means, well this should assist: spoken or written account of connected events; a linked story.  Or to put it the reverse way, you post any number of one-off efforts which within themselves are narrow and without context.  However by combining them all a related and moving story is presented.  

That's narrative Bob.  You should try it someday.  Wink

SC,that was my initial post, it was hardly a "big mention ", a mention yes, but hardly big.

Maybe so Big Bob.

But consider this: the Pell thread for example has survived marvelously in one piece despite opinion here and there by people of the Right (who you embrace) those of Labor supporters (who you don't) and Greens (who you despise).  Critically there's not another thread as every turn in the road occurs or a disparate leftie opinion is expressed. 

It's a great inclusive thread.  It's narrative writ large.

SC. no worries, if this forum did not have posters of the all political persuasions right it would eventually die. Nothing wrong with a bit of banter between posters of those varying political persuasions to keep the forum alive.
