In light of the very public disagreement between local redneckscockies and Wodonga council over the location of the Wodonga sale-yards, I think the way forward is patently obvious, instead of moving the sale-yards to Bandiana, they should be relocated to their original location, the current site of the soon-to-be-disused Stanley Street pool complex.
Pouring millions upon millions of public dollars into a high density agricultural site located in an area earmarked for residential development is clearly a wise investment after all.
Who wouldn’t want to wake up in the morning to the brisk stench aroma of ammonia and faeces?
Who wouldn’t want to hear the low mournful drone of herds of cattle rounded up to be slaughtered?
I predict property values will skyrocket.
Perhaps a nice abattoir and the relocation of the sewerage treatment works to the CBD might be a worthwhile inclusion in the railway diversion project while we are at it.
The Wodonga council could employ an unemployed garden gnome at consultant rates to invent a back-story for it and hang a few Christmas lights here and there.
It’ll be a tourist attraction really.
If anyone dares whinge that they are put out by the titled aristocracy farmers, they could rightly respond that the sale-yards were there first.
“Progress? I’m only ‘fer it if it don’t inconvenience me in the slightest”
