Loopy Bloggers

Got to say it does not surprise me than a rather innocuous post by  Matthew Hanssen has caused a big spray by the chief blogger.

Matthew criticised Roel Loopers for supposedly promoting acts of vandalism, but in reality it was Loopers constant criticism of our Premier Colin Barnett that raised the ire of Liberal Hanssen. By the way Roel, that is how you spell his name, please get it right.

I totally disagree with the fact that Loopers feels free to attack City of Fremantle employees at will, but will not broach any criticism himself. After all, this is the guy that attacked Georgie Adeane for sacking him in favour of her daughter, and then deleted the post after she gave him a job promoting the Princess May Markets.

I disagree with some of Hanssen’s views but he does not have to be attacked in preference to some of the lightweights who have represented the electors of Fremantle. Jim McGinity, as a previous Minister of Health commenced the degradation of services at Fremantle Hospital.

Back to Barnett, hated by Loopers, who dislikes the fact that we are building a world class sporting stadium and envigorating the Perth CBD in the form of Elizabeth Quay.

A report last week stated that the new stadium at Burswood will deliver more than $291 million and 1300 jobs each year and that the Elizabeth Quay construction will create more than 1600 jobs, be a workplace for more than 10,000 people, and attract more than $2 billion in private investment.

Frozen Fruit Dangers


A second brand of frozen mixed berries has been withdrawn from supermarket shelves across the country, as five cases of Hepatitis A linked to the product are confirmed in New South Wales and Victoria.

One-kilogram bags of Nanna’s frozen mixed berries were recalled on Saturday as a result of the health scare.

The recall has now been extended to Creative Gourmet mixed berries in 300 gram and 500 gram packets.

Health officials have confirmed three cases of hepatitis A linked to the product in Victoria and two in New South Wales.

The berries came from China and Chile and were distributed by Patties Foods, which is based in Bairnsdale, east Victoria.

A statement from the company said while quality control testing to date had not revealed any concerns with the food safety of either product, “further detailed testing is being done and the recall is an important step to ensure public safety and confidence”.

Australia has very strict quarantine import rules but these only apply to FRESH fruit and vegetables and not to frozen fruit and vegetables. There are also strict quarantine rules that apply to any fresh Australian fruit and vegetables coming into Western Australia from other states.

Go down to your local Boost Juice or similar establishment and inquire as to where they source their fruit, as I have done. They will not know or certainly will not admit that they use imported fruit.

Tony the Pizza Seller

The new establishment, Bar and Restaurant, at Bathers Beach may be viewed by some as a success but after numerous visits I have to say that it is a disapointment.

There is no bar to sit at and have a quiet drink, but that is ok if you had good service to tables, but that unfortunately is lacking.

I do know one of the owners, Henry Liascos, whom I have written positively in the past, but I am at loss at how a great potential outlook has been denigrated by lack of design , poor ambience, even worse service and rude staff.

Tony, the pizza seller, was employed at the Raffles in Applecross, and now unfortunately Fremantle have to endure his arrogance and rudeness. He has a habit of being so rude to customers it is art form, learnt at the Raffles.

Henry, a tip, when your staff threaten customers, it is time for them to go.

I have walked.
