SMH Letters to the Editor: Words that are hollow (August 29, 2014)
I watched Utopia on ABC TV on Wednesday and when I opened the Herald on Thursday, there was Les Wielinga channelling “Nation Building Authority” supremo Rob Sitch (“New body given job of ‘strategic vision’ for the harbour“, August 28). The spin is all there: “high-powered committee”, “multi-agency body”, “overarching plan”, “clear vision for the future”. No doubt “world-class” and “global city” are in the document too.
We have seen all this before with the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and we can be sure that it’s just a Pru Goward plot to turn the Bays Precinct into Hong Kong on 80 hectares.
