Golf course: James Packer has last laugh

Golf course: James Packer has last laugh

I HAD to laugh at Smithy’s cartoon in the June 21 edition.

If the powers-that-be had taken their heads out of the sand some years ago, they would have accepted James Packer’s offer of giving the golf course to the State (free) and $400k towards the development of the new stadium.

No wonder he is laughing all the way to the bank. He sold land to the State and did not have to contribute a cent to the development that has ended in his back yard, anyhow.
