Sigh. In retrospect I probably should have shut my big mouth rather than comment on the upgrade to Hamer Hall. I’m not really a philistine; I’ve enjoyed quite a few concerts at the venue.
And in fact Rupert Hamer was one of the PTUA’s patrons. It’s the vast amounts of money going into roads that’s really misguided.
PS. 15/9/2008. On Sunday I finally managed to get the point out there that world-class arts facilities are good, but we need world-class transport facilities too.
