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.

Growers Markets

“How much easier is it to be critical than be correct.” Benjamin Disraeli

My blog yesterday, criticising the proposed Alley Cat Street Food Markets puts me in exalted company. I am now up there with Brad Pettitt, Matthew Hanssen, Colin Barnett, and Tony Abbott, all of whom have been routinely criticised by Roel Loopers, author of the blog Freo’s View.

I like Growers Markets – Contrary to what was written I do like growers markets but the only one that I know to be a true growers market is the one held in Albany on Saturday mornings, run by growers offering produce that is grown by those same growers. Growers markets do not affect my business, as stated by Roel, as we sell to some of those stall holders that operate in the so called growers markets, but it has an adverse affect on those small retailers who have to open 7 days a week to compete with supermarkets, pay high rents and who have a myriad of health bylaws to adhere to.

I do not believe that Georgie Adeane has a right to set up Markets anywhere she wants in Fremantle. As I have blogged before the issue of illegal parking is a problem for residents and something that Ms Adeane has not addressed.

I am also heartened with the level of support that I have received from West End residents.
