WITH SA Labor’s apparent strategy of “negative population trajectory” (that is, declining population) which is clearly evidenced by the loss of another seat in the House of Representatives in Canberra, there comes the probably unintended consequence of enormous long-term benefits.
At some future point the new RAH will be the right size and trending towards being too big for the state, there will be more than enough electricity for everyone (we could then sell the surplus to the Vics), unemployment will decrease, there will be less congestion on the roads, fewer complaints about public transport, fewer kids underachieving at school, decreasing complaints about burst water pipes, Leesa Vlahos would be able to cope with declining numbers and the list goes on and on.
And then our fearless leaders could sell everything left, which might be enough to pay off SA’s debts and live happily ever after ... and be right about everything.
So you can see that every cloud has a silver lining. CHRISTOPHER JAY,
