Not-so-sweet-Lorraine

May 22, 2018

It’s a great jazz standard. A wonderful tribute penned way, way back in the early part of the last century by American Fred Stobaugh as a farewell to Lorraine, his wife of almost 75 years.

Which it is, or seems to be, about as long as South Australia has had to endure the unbelievable saga of it’s very own Lorraine…the Rosenberg version, embattled Onkaparinga Mayor, boss cocky at the Local Government Association and serial filler of newspaper headlines.

Cabel Bond, in today’s “Advertiser”, understates the whole sorry saga by describing the unbelievable antics down south as causing “a fair bit of consternation”. Rather like catergorising the sinking of the Titanic as a minor maritime mishap.

At some stage this whole debacle must be put to rest. And I will not resile from my stance on the LGA, a body that costs Unley Council a not-inconsiderable annual membership fee.

Meanwhile, turn to page 18 of the Tiser  for Mr Bond’s viewpoint.
