On Bob Carr

Comment posted to livenews.com.au
As someone pointed out, this man's legacy is one of wasted opportunities. I met the man, he is impressive, highly intelligent, a great speaker. But so what? What did he do with it? Nothing. Nero fiddled while Rome burned and Carr read his books and contemplated the metaphysical nuances of the world while his state ran into ruin, corruption and decay crept into every nook and cranny and the greatest economic and property boom of the century got p...ssed away. Shame Mr. Carr, SHAME.



One of Carr's achievements was to give poker machines to the hotels. This took money away from the community (clubs - many of whom were financially crippled as a result) and into the pockets of those few running the pubs. What a deplorable act from a leader of a party that supposedly supports the common man.
