    Show actually has scenes from the refugee camps in Africa, so its quite interesting.

    One of the participants obviously came back with changed views, but was more (if that is the right word) sympathetic to those in refugee camps than detention centres.

    Giving parents, school kids and communites a facility (be it a canteen, class room, libray or hall) which was long overdue owing to neglect by successive governments, doing it at no cost to the school community, and keeping local tradespeople in work so the economy didn't falter, you mean, only to have muppets throw it back in their face because they don't know how good they've got it here compared with every other developed country?

    Yeah, that'd be it.

    You talk about other people having their head up their arse, but there's not one better example of it on this forum than you. You turn into a whinging, ultra defensive dickhead as soon as someone has a contrary opinion about politics to you.

    In fact, your head is so far up your arse that you have obviously missed the millions, upon millions of dollars the government wasted on that program, money which could have been spent on easing the cost of living pressures which was the platform they stood for at the election way back then.

    Working families, working families, working families, working families. How is spending $2m on a $50k (max) canteen going to ease the burdens which are placed on these working families.

    You're right, I don't spend much time bothering writing long posts in this thread, because they're met by *******s like you who burr up and call me a previleged so and so just because I have a differing opinion to you.

    Well, it gave my school a new basketball court that can't be used because:
    a) It isn't level and contains multiple 'trip hazards'
    b) It has drainage issues after rain i.e. water sits there and is a 'hazard'

    Not to mention the fact it took the best part of a year to build, had to be closed for repairs after 2 weeks (something to do with painting bolts), and then again a month or so later (to try and fix the drainage, which failed), and has barely been used since, y'know, its a trip hazard and all.

    The initiative was good in theory, but in my case at least, it really hasn't worked when applied.

    Haha, that's a shocker.

    Deserve it for liking basketball though, tbf.

    This post is so so ironic it's not funny. In fact, if I didn't know better I'd think it's a brilliant piece of satire.

    Were it so, it would have passed waaaay over your scone, sunshine.

    The irony here is, blokes like HJ are happy to post and disagree with people on here, and I've had plenty of disagrements with him without resorting to the rank **** you do when someone challenges you over something. As soon as someone does that, you resort to abuse.

    I don't know why you do it, but you invariably do.

    Edit: I should add Stephen to that too, tbf.

    Least it gives you a good place to congregate for fire drills. Well worth for $30m it probably cost.

    That's the thing, there's 2 or 3 people at the school who play basketball. One of whom is an exchange student. It ended up being used for kicking a footy around.

    Disappointing lack of abuse. The exception proving the rule.
