Better expected

REVELATIONS of proposed Orwellian restrictions on freedom of expression and speech by Melville City councillors can only suggest there is an abundance of staffers with nothing better to do or there are those in high office who wish to silence their detractors.

Ratepayers expect better than this blatant waste of time and money on such frivolous matters and are still waiting for the recouping of millions of dollars lost during the GFC by its city managers capitulating to similar idealistic but misguided academic theory.
