Viewless lookouts

Another example of how bureaucrats think and act differently from the rest of us is the lookout contradiction.

I've seen it in many places around the country - councils use our money to build lookouts where there are spectacular views. Then they allow the vegetation to grow to obscure the view.

So they actually use our money to give us lookouts with no views.

We have two in Terrigal, overlooking the bay, beaches and headland:




Well, they would overlook the bay, beaches and headland if the bloody trees were removed, or at least regularly pruned.

It's what you and I and the rest of the non-bureaucrat world would do.

Only if you're a bureaucrat do you think a lookout with no view is a good way to spend ratepayers' money.
