The short answer is, Brimbank Council. It's normally droll Peter Collina had a go at answering but just put his foot in his mouth, as is the usual case here at Brimbank these days.
Apart from the cost of having to heat it, the pool could only be used for three to four months of the year, he said.
Maybe you can figure that out, I can't.
Meanwhile a spokeman for Sports Minister Justin "Jockstrap" Madden denied the Government was failing people in the West.No point repeating here what he said, since it sounds more than a little foolish in face of the facts.
Once again, the problem can be put down to living in a safe Labor seat. The observation by the Age can be summed up as follows:
John Thwaites' (marginal) electorate gets $52 million for a new pool. At the same time Bruce Mildenhall's (safe labor) electorate gets nothing. End of story.
Bruce of course, has now lost TWO pools for the people of his electorate, the Footscray pool and the Sunshine pool. Obviously, the sooner this man gets a right proper kick in the @rse, the better it will be for everyone concerned.
