THE NSW Premier has now set the agenda for what could be described as bribing or blackmailing Orange voters to get a Nationals candidate elected in March.
She promised $25 million for a new sporting complex off the Northern Distributor Road but we only get the dough if we elect Kate Hazelton.
So if the Premier wants her pound of flesh here’s what we can do as a counter.
When you buy train tickets to Sydney, refuse to pay until the government replaces the clapped out XPTs that have long gone past their use by date.
When your car comes up for registration, tell the RMS you’re only going to pay the fee if the government fixes the rough sections of main roads you nominate - there’s plenty around.
And when you buy train tickets to Sydney, refuse to pay until the government replaces the clapped out XPTs that have long gone past their use by date.
The rail cars, some going into service in 1982, have travelled an average of 9.945 million kilometres, the equivalent of nearly 13 times to the moon and back.
And taking the Premier’s ultimatum into the federal arena you should refuse to pay for stamps when you send mail unless Australia Post guarantees delivery in two days.
Don’t forget Sydney’s getting two new stadiums and last week the government promised to spend $20 million backed by another federal gift of $16.1 million to upgrade Manly’s Brookvale Oval.
And there’s no conditions.
