“This is not Rome. The people do not want circuses, they want services that work.”

Peter Wilkosz of Byron Bay writes to the SMH to comment on plans by the Labor government to spend $90 million on a V8 Supercar race in Sydney’s Olympic Park – a race that many residents do not want. Other writers are not impressed either:

“This latest in a long list of decisions to ignore the loud resistance of the community shows that Nathan Rees is continuing the ALP culture of deafness.” Kate Rowe, Ashfield.

“Since when did NSW have $90 million to spare to subsidise a wretched car race? I thought we were just about broke.” Jennie Owen, Baulkham Hills.
