Are you out of your cotton picking mind?
Not much thought has gone into this has it sunshine.
The Tank Stream runs Underneath Sydney CBD.
You are expecting us to tear down billions of dollars worth of property so you can have a beautifully flowing river.

Okaaay Gavin. Thanks for this...um......article.

For the last half hour Iíve been trying to work out what the point of this angry ramble is!

Is it humour?

Is it satire?

On the front page of OLO it is listed under the category of environment. But it isn't really an environmental piece, at least not with any semblance of logic.

Nope, it beats me! ( :>|

Are we all so Americanised nowadays that we cannot recognise IRONY, both authorial (is that a word?) and editorial?

Great article Gavin I'm behind one hunnerd percent. I've designed a system whereby we can float whole cities out to sea (and hopefully permanently misplace them).
Who'll miss 'em?
And don't be discouraged by those overintellectuals who mistake this very serious issue for irony. Obviously if you were being ironic you would have called yourselves The Committee of Rural Australians and Zealous Yuppies, right?
You really can't be too obvious about these things around here, y'know.
