They’re a pack of greenies in Tassie, and so dedicated to the recycling cause that they’re looking at recycling Sydney’s monorail.
“I think Barry O’Farrell should give it to us as a post-Bicentennial gift,” Hobart’s deputy mayor Ron Christie said.
Good on them. Our precious taxpayer dollars are frittered away on all sorts of fantastic projects, so hurrah if anything can be salvaged once they’re consigned to the tip. But why stop at the monorail? There are other landmarks that could have been salvaged if only other leaders had Mr Christie’s foresight, imagination, and dedication to the Reduce Reuse Recycle mantra.

I’m so glad The Punch doesn’t arrive wrapped in plastic.
If it did, I’d be accused of hypocrisy in trying to convince my fellow Premiers to follow South Australia in banning check-out style plastic shopping bags.
Every year, four billion of these bags are dumped into Australia’s environment, clogging landfill or choking the nation’s waterways.
By stopping this in South Australia, that’s 400 million bags a year that won’t be causing massive environmental damage.
