im writing this for a mate
who has lost heart

kevin....just announced..a long term study..
to maybe move..the navy off garden..island..to make way for the cruise industry/tourism..etc..WHAT A HUGE DEVELOPMENT*..

but that upsets the plan..of mice and men..because the nsw premier..first proposed..it..is on auto-deney..

as i speak..some mate of barry o'ferral..,
refers to it..as a brain snap..

it sounds like basic common sense..but why wait..boats float..instantly..about time the navy practiced dock making

or good port access[hint/hint]

but barry..sounds like he wants his cake..and the navy too
and no doudt too..NO FURTHER CASINO"S to compete with..*murdoc junior

anyhow tell me im wrong
it makes sense to me..its seems visionary

OUG there are some practical reasons as to why we should keep Sydney. One glaring issue for the navy is the tidal movements up North which have suitable sites only accessible to larger vessels twice a day, on high tides.

Kev has realized that NSW is lost to him (especially after his western suburbs visits last week)Ö.not a friend in sight for Kev, so itís stuff NSW and prop up Qld.

The talk around the governments back bench is that Kev is going to announce a moon landing for Australia by 2020Ö.I believe that came from one of his two Team Obama spin doctor imports.

sog..i know..its a thought bubble
the timing alone indicates..that..

but brissie..or as far as rocky..or as low down as say byron bay..
its only a thought..to have a paper..years hence..

BUT..i say why not now

RUPERTs SON..is on the wrong side..of the coat hanger
[big boats never could dock at his..new quangocash machine

he only got his 2 de cassino deal..
signed sealed recently..[once the libs got it]

just like dad gets his big payoff..
when tony gets in and sells him the nbn

never the less..it makes sense..to move..plus free up some great real estate..for well planed development..plus do..a proper welcoming place for tourists..who knows

i just saw the poli tricks..and thought great idea to develop
but why wait..the boats could ship[out]..into a new industry

think how much industry could clean up on..just selling their sydney land value..then build new..to create other industry benefit..plus a sea change..for our service people

win/win
plus the son's deeds..like his father..dont payoff
crime musnt pay..it was all done..with..such great haste
we just know it was done by a wink..and a nod

..like tony selling nbn
to fox...surely will be gifted away too./.just watch
its just basic dial m stuff/plus a bit of poli-tricks 101

criminals mustnot..be seen to profit..from crime..nor collusion/mates rates

How typical of this clown, have a thought bubble, & go off not even quarter cocked.

To start with there are thousands of sailors with homes families, kids in schools, partners with jobs, all in Sydney, because that is the fleet base.

Then we have probably a similar number of support workers, employed by civilian contractors who are critical to the navy. They are not full time, & many less than quarter time on navy jobs, so would not relocate.

Then the infrastructure, built & developed over decades. Compared to this Brisbane is just a hick town, with a crummy little muddy river.

Yes there are good reasons to have the navy "up north", as it would be closer to any threat, but it is only a days steaming to Brisbane, so unless they go somewhere like Townsville, not much is saved.

My son is in the navy, & as a Queenslander he would love it. He would probably stay in for longer, but most would just say "stuff them" & move on. The navy would loose the best of it's hard to come by technical people, & we would be back to having half the fleet tied to a wharf due to lack of trained crew.

This highlights the stupidity of political decisions. Build subs in Adelaide, rather than where they are going to be based. Straight vote buying.

Fit out the new amphibious warfare ships in Port Phillip bay, rather than where they are going to be base. All the technical support that should be available from the builders so far away as to be useless.

Thank god our prospective enemies have even more payola & corruption going on in their defense procurement & basing, it is all that saves us.

There wasn't any thinking involved. Just a blathering of an incompetent panic merchant who is hoping that voters are as dumb now as they were six years ago. Hopefully their numbers have dwindled.
