The 30 Year Plan for Adelaide

Posted on: September 22, 2009

Fix it now, not in 30 years

Barely 800,000 of the total population of 1.58 million of South Australia provide the revenue by their personal and corporate effort, yet the Government has gambled and lost $2.9 billion of it from investments. Has Treasury become so flush with money that it can afford to ignore this huge loss? Or paying the $10 billion standing debt load? Or making no attempt to recover $174 million from over 500,000 unpaid fines – one third of the entire state population? Is the rest of the State just the milch for this citycentric mentality to accommodate another half a million people within the existing boundaries? Think about it. The city is a constant liability. It provides no wealth for the community and drains the resources provided by the rest of the State, with little and then nothing provided by Government in return. Pre-election 30 year wizardry? Almost as bad as the Treasurer 25 year wizardry pontificating that the $8 billion owed to the Public Service “would be on track by 2034”.

Response to Ian Henschke  interview on ABC StatelineSA with the State Planning Minister, Paul Holloway = the Government 30 Year Plan to increase Adelaide population by 500,000 over 30 years – on ABC eMails.
