Sydneysiders, the Americans of NSW

“Jeez, I’m sick of hearing about how hard done by Sydney is.
“The Government won’t spend billions of dollars on a bypass that will cut five minutes off our travel time… The Government expects us to pay for transport system upgrades through increased fares..we pay so much petrol…we are so broke because we just paid an obscene amount to a greedy vendor for a house not worth half what we paid.”
Fair dinkum, Sydneysiders are the Americans of NSW. The state ends at the Hunter River to the north, the Blue Mountains to the west and Lake Illawarra to the south. Nothing exists outside Sydney’s borders and what does exist you don’t care about.
Come have a look at our decrepit roads, our non-existent transport system, our petrol prices (no 99c deals happening here) and our way of life.
You might realize how lucky you are.”

Brian McMullen, Dubbo, letter to the Daily Telegraph.
