inner west whispers local gossip rumour hearsay and unsubstantiated fact apologies farewells and political snobbery l you may recall haberfield socialite and cultural historian emma brooks maher sent out a letter to haberfield residents commenting on the ethics of ashfield council liberal party candidate vittoria raciti maher has since letterboxed an apology to mrs vittoria raciti withdrawing any imputations of hypocrisy and misconduct maher might have lost this battle but will she give up the war l rozelle businesses are playing musical chairs precious is moving jewel moved up from balmain there are new owners at piccolo padre and new owners at bar lazio meanwhile queen bee will soon house a new little café the yoga studio on the other side of victoria road has already got its new cafe however more cafes need more people hopefully these businesses understand the commercial risk that the tigers development may or may not bring l rival news publication inner west courier is holding a meet the candidates forum for grayndler candidates however only two of them hall greenland and anthony albanese will be attending cedric spencer liberal and three other candidates from the christian democrat party bullet train for australia party and palmer united party have allegedly been snubbed interesting that the courier must be one of the few news ltd publications that aren t bagging out the labor party and heaping praise on mr abbott there are around 25,000 liberal voters in grayndler l newtown loses ethical trader earthkid to the on-line market dianna from earth kid will sadly close her store and trade exclusively on-line for now l special tribute our hearts go out to the family of much-loved italian/australian performer ricky daniele who sadly passed away this month i m right you re wrong righteous rightie reaches near sexual levels of excitement contemplating the prospect of inner city elitists getting a long-deserved bitch slapping dear rr ­ are you looking forward to the alp and greens getting reamed at the ballot box as much as the rest of the conservatariat barnaby annandale rr replies satisfying as it will be to start puffing on the cuban cigar of victory and downing the grange hermitage of vindication come 7pm on the evening of september 7 my main concern is that degenerate inner city residents finally acknowledge just how repugnant their values are to the rest of australia when labor suffers a crushing defeat it will be entirely down to the stranglehold libertarian sodomites have established on that once great political party along with the university sector the public broadcaster and indeed all non-murdoch-owned media i like to explain this in terms of the taxi driver/cultural studies lecturer index in inner city seats there are 100 foucault-quoting academics for every one talkback-radio-loving cabbie while everywhere else in the country there are 100 cabbies for every academic what does this mean obviously that mainstream australians want to see the death penalty brought back every last bumbling bureaucrat sorry public servant retrenched asylum seekers summarily executed welfare recipients waterboarded juvenile delinquents shipped off to png to be devoured by penis-gourdsporting cannibals and laws introduced to allow frustrated motorists to mow down any self-righteous cyclist slowing the flow of traffic needless to say you won t find any such sensible policies in the alp s platform which is exactly why it will shortly be reduced to rump undoubtedly it will remain in opposition until it renounces whitlam and all his works and embraces the kind of watson-era social conservatism that resonates with the tradies towelheads and yes taxi drivers who live in heartland marginal seats n email your

constructed between 1890-93 as per the instructions of the will of thomas walker after his death in 1886 it was designed by sir john sulman in a style that reflects the influence of florence nightingale s 19th century reforms and is one of only two hospitals from this time period to have survived up to this date apart from a brief period of use as a women s hospital during world war ii the thomas walker convalescent hospital served its original purpose up until 1976 at this point it was given to the royal prince alfred hospital and turned it into the rivendell adolescent unit which

community life r oad test rant the world of difference the greens candidate for grayndler tells us what he would do with $4.7 billion and it has nothing to do with rail track upgrades if you stayed awake for any of the leaders tv debate you would have quickly realised there is nothing of substance between the old major parties three days later tony abbott confirmed this by telling liberal voters that they had to preference labor ahead of the greens and he told us why there is the world of difference between the greens and just about everyone else who is contesting this election because everyone else in this campaign supports economic growth and a more prosperous economy for a change mr abbott got it half right the greens do oppose the kind of economic growth mr abbott and mr rudd support the kind of growth that is cooking and pillaging the planet for the first time in thousands of years the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has exceeded 400 parts per million and is already leading to the major degradation of the living environment in many poor regions of asia and africa and to extreme and devastating weather events in our own country if you ve flown over the hunter valley recently you will have seen the dramatic degradation of the environment there a situation that will only get worse thanks to the $4.7 billion in rail track upgrades that mr albanese the current minister for transport and infrastructure and mp for grayndler is presiding over ­ with mr abbott s full support the new rail capacity is to facilitate the doubling and trebling of coal exports already the coal we export produces twice as much greenhouse gases as the whole domestic economy and a little to the north of the hunter there is the invasion of scores of fracking rigs in the beautiful area around gloucester this csg drilling constitutes a real threat to the water table and some of our most valuable food growing regions yes that kind of mindless economic growth is opposed by the greens but there is growth that we support the growth of renewable power the growth of environmental protections the growth of universities and tafe and preschool education the growth of free time the growth of your rights at work the growth of new green industries the growth of affordable and sustainable housing and on a local level the growth of the leichhardt campus of sydney secondary college and of mental health facilities at callan park the difference comes down to what we do with our money our labour and the riches of the earth for example the greens would spend that $4.7 billion ­ and the almost $2 billion of our taxes committed by both parties to the westconnex motorway ­ on growth that would make our lives more pleasurable productive and easier so yes there is a world of difference between the greens and the older neo-liberal parties and that world of difference is a world that is more liveable and more bountiful in the good things of life n words hall

n feature the fight of his life in a matter of days anthony norman albanese member for grayndler deputy pm deputy leader of the alp leader of the house of representatives and the minister for infrastructure transport broadband communications and the digital economy will be either a historical footnote or a labor party legend the big story on the smh website the morning i interview albo is titled `ground control to major kev sorry you re a goner it s one of a deluge of articles insisting the `sugar hit generated by rudd s resurrection has dissipated and the alp is headed for humiliating defeat presumably the member of grayndler has seen the story along with plenty of frightening internal polling but if he s worried about becoming the shortest-serving deputy prime minister in australia s history he s not letting on when ciao arrives at his bustling electoral office on marrickville s main road he bounds up to introduce himself then starts reminiscing with the photographer who s been shooting him since the heady days of the kevin `07 campaign he even laughs when i confess i d wanted to get a shot of him reading the daily telegraph where he was photoshopped to resemble sgt schultz his hovering media advisor unlaughingly makes it clear that certainly won t be happening if my dim memories of hogan s heroes are accurate the sgt schultz portrayal isn t necessarily as insulting as murdoch s attack dogs would have wished schultz after all was a good-natured fundamentally decent character and albo has gone surprisingly far in politics by being similarly likeable he must be the only person in the country who can credibly claim to be close friends with both kevin rudd and julia gillard and even those on the other side of the political fence are given to confessing a sneaking regard for him he s a popular local member and now the liberals have committed to preferencing the greens last in no danger of being voted out himself even if many of his comrades are look we ve got to the point whereby we re competitive i think there is a real chance of us winning the election we need to win seats in queensland and hold them in nsw albo tells me once we sit down in his office which he is quick to point out is where the country is run from whenever he is acting pm however dire the polls are looking now the fact the majority of disengaged voters ­ the swingers in marginal seats ­ don t make up their minds until close to polling day is providing some hope i remain firmly of the view that when people focus in the last week the question will be is kevin rudd up to the job of being prime minister the answer to that is yes the answer to the question is tony abbott up to being prime minister i think is a resounding no even from members of his own caucus let alone supporters of the liberal party you can t be prime minister of the nation if you refuse to engage in serious interviews he avoids scrutiny that s not a charge that could be levelled at albo who points out he s been all over the full gamut of media in recent weeks including the likes of alan jones andrew bolt and steve price in 2011 albanese ignored australian federal police warnings and waded into a crowd of 200 enraged anti-carbon tax campaigners staging a demo outside his office albanese doesn t mention the personal abuse he copped he was called a liar a gutless loser and told his beloved late mother would be ashamed of him but does recall one of the placards that was waved around it is extraordinary that someone thinks standing in the diverse community that is the inner west of sydney with a `tolerance is our demise banner is acceptable but they did that he says unfortunately for labor it s not only the perpetually outraged alan jones demographic that s offside plenty of true believers have been dismayed by the leadership circus the flip flopping on pricing carbon the lurch to the right on asylum seekers and the corruption uncovered in the state party by icac during the rudd-gillard-rudd era unsurprisingly albo paints a rosy picture of the last six years and promises big things in the next three i sat for 12 years in opposition and i know how frustrating that can be in terms of the local electorate which i think was ignored during the howard government a labor government makes a difference in terms of the italian forum cultural centre mackey park fraser park the ashfield civic centre the cooks river revitalisation which is why i m so determined not just in grayndler but to do my best to re-elect the labor government because i do think there s unfinished business in terms of building the nation s future albo claims not to indulge in the fratricidal hatred that characterises relations between the greens and alp but when talk turns to one of his grand obsessions ­ building a second sydney airport ­ he has trouble controlling his frustration i do think that the simplistic slogans of the 10 all relatively quiet on the inner western front will your electorate be red green or blue come election day grayndler ever since adam bandt snatched the seat of melbourne from labor in 2010 pundits have been insisting grayndler would be the next to fall heralding the unstoppable greenification of inner city elitist enclaves given the ongoing gentrification of the inner west it s certainly feasible what was once labor heartland could veer to the right or post-materialist left in the not too distant future but it won t be happening this election ciao s prediction neither hall greenland greens nor cedric spencer liberals will be able to tear down the popular deputy pm greens political party need to be put under examination and i think that when they are they are found wanting we support a second airport for sydney i ve said that i want to see construction commence in the next term the idea you could have sydney airport shut down and no second airport in what is a global city it is quite frankly absurd i don t understand how people would get into sydney are they going to parachute out of planes they [the greens say what they think people want to hear when they campaign against sydney airport but they also campaign in western sydney against a second airport so you end up with no realistic solution and sydney airport entrenched as a monopoly if the prospect of less aircraft noise isn t enough to sway undecided grayndler voters albo is hoping the alp s newfound enthusiasm for legalising gay marriage will be you have leadership from the prime minister the deputy prime minister the leader of the labor party in the senate ­ the three key people are all supportive of marriage equality we ve said there should be a vote within 100 days we would be pushing for a conscience vote across the parliament this is reform that s time has come whether labor wins or loses on election day albo says he ll hang around for the next term but makes no promises beyond that i don t think these are jobs for life and i ve always considered before i ve re-nominated you give up a lot in terms of time with family time at home but if i do have the opportunity to continue to be deputy prime minister [i hope i can look back at the end of that term and say `construction has been started on a second airport marriage equality has been advanced the nbn has been rolled out to millions of people disabilitycare the better schools plan the murraydarling plan are all entrenched all those things are i think as ben chifley said things worth fighting for n to read the full transcript of ciao s interview with the deputy pm or listen to the audio go to n words nigel bowen n photo ben cregan sydney gentrification means this traditionally labor seat can no longer be taken for granted either anyone who can afford a house in balmain annandale or newtown isn t likely to be keen on wealth redistribution but neither the greens dianne hiles nor the liberals sean o connor is likely to be able to make up enough ground to roll the high-profile tanya plibersek ciao s prediction o connor like greenland is likely to be cursing the greens-liberal ideological antipathy that ruled out mutually beneficial preferencing deals in the inner west come the evening of september 7 reid while albanese and plibersek will survive the anti-labor swing in nsw it s unlikely john murphy will be so lucky it ll probably be close but the tireless craig laundy scion of the $500 million laundy hotel group empire looks certain to establish an inner west beachhead for the conservatives nonetheless this seat should provide political tragics with some election-night entertainment as it switches back and forth between the liberal and labor columns as booths from areas as diverse as auburn and drummoyne are counted ciao s prediction don t expect the new member for reid to support any calls for stricter regulation of pokies or pubs.

n election promotion a brief guide to the men and women who hold the fate of the inner west ­ and the nation ­ in their hands these four candidates tell us why they deserve your vote meet the candidates tanya plibersek sydney labor tanya s parents migrated from slovenia in the `50s she has previously held the positions of minister for housing and minister for the status of women tanya is currently the minister for health and medical research why should people vote for you sydneysiders want a government with a positive plan for the economy that ensures nobody is left behind only labor can deliver both a strong economy and a fair society at the same time like steering australia through the global financial crisis and building disabilitycare what can you do for the sydney electorate i am committed to unlocking our economic potential by bringing the national broadband network to inner sydney transforming the way local residents access health education and employment each school in the sydney electorate also stands to gain an average of $1.6 million extra from labor s better schools plan which will make sure our kids and our country have the brightest possible future next year our new dental scheme for kids begins ­ grow up smiling ­ which expands free dental care to 3.4 million australian kids why should voters trust you i have been honoured to represent the electorate dr cedric spencer grayndler liberal cedric spencer has a background in business and academia working as a lawyer a university lecturer and small business owner cedric is also proud to have been a volunteer legal worker for his community why should people vote for you for too long the people of grayndler have been taken for granted by this labor government they deserve more they deserve someone who will fight for them i m very passionate about the area i want to see prosperity and opportunity return to the region and only the liberal party has a plan that will achieve that what can you do for the grayndler area the two biggest issues people raise with me are cost of living for households and increasing pressures on small business people are really doing it tough with increasing costs and are struggling to find the extra money they need to pay their electricity bills which is why the first thing a coalition government will do is scrap the carbon tax and ease pressures on grayndler households businesses are also doing it tough with empty shops popping up everywhere if elected we will help small businesses grow by cutting red and green tape by $1 billion a year which will in turn help create more jobs why should voters trust you unlike this current labor government which has shown time and time again it can t be trusted because it says one thing and does another the coalition can be trusted only the coalition can form the strong stable government to deliver a stronger economy with more jobs real help for families and small business lower taxes and secure borders how do you feel your experience as a lawyer affects your political career i m passionate about everything i do whether s it s being a lawyer or an educator and i will be bringing that passion with me to politics for too long the people of grayndler have been taken for granted and if elected my door will always be open to the people of this great electorate of sydney for fifteen years and over that time sydneysiders have got to know me fairly well people know where i stand on issues and they know they can always come and talk to me about their concerns at a local street corner meeting on the weekend with immigration being a part of your family s history how do you feel about the most recent discussions on boat people it is important to me that we meet our humanitarian obligations towards people fleeing persecution but we also need to stop the growing number of deaths at sea my own parents came to australia after world war ii ­ my mother through a camp in italy and my father through a camp in austria we have a responsibility to accept humanitarian immigration from [refugee camps for more info phone 0481 323 676 email for more info email phone 9379 0700 hall greenland grayndler greens hall has lived in the grayndler area nearly his whole life in which time he has become an award-winning journalist historian urban environmentalist and an equal-rights activist why should people vote for you i will be ultra-accessible and consult widely and frequently i will give people honest representation and intelligent advocacy voters can be assured that i will pursue the policies and aspirations that they share what can you do for the grayndler area the greens have a vision for grayndler that is based on talking to voters and being involved in community campaigns that vision revolves around investing in public education from early childhood to university and tafe achieving 100 per cent power from renewable energy sources improving public infrastructure and the environment restoring democratic planning and pursuing taxation reform and social justice whether for single parents or refugees my hope is that the next parliament will reflect the outgoing one and that the greens will again hold the balance of power adam bandt as the sole greens mp in the house of representatives notched up significant achievements such as the clean energy fund denticare and the inquiry into high-speed rail just think what two or three greens mps in the lower house could achieve 12 pauline tyrrell reid greens pauline is now in her third term as a councillor on canada bay council and currently serves in the position of deputy mayor why should voters trust you my record of caring for people and the environment is there for all to see i led the fight to save callan park and was involved in the lobbying for bicentennial park on rozelle bay i was deeply involved in stopping the motorways that threatened over 500 homes in the inner west as well as continuing the fight against the endless expansion of sydney airport my commitment to social justice is also on the record i think i ve proved i can be trusted to stand up for the community how does your experience as a journalist make you a better candidate it has trained me to listen to people and understand their concerns as a journalist i have worked outside the hothouse political world and encountered people and issues from all sectors of society why should people vote for you the greens are the only party that will increase funds to the unhcr so that refugees are identified and resettled quickly rather than being offloaded in png and nauru at a cost not just of billions of dollars spent on detention centres but to our humanity the greens are the only party that s prepared to act against dangerous climate change by funding a green jobs-rich economy we ll fund these green jobs by using the $14 billion fossil fuel subsidies that over the next four years will be handed over to the big mining companies place a moratorium on any new coal mines and coal seam gas extraction and increase taxes on the excessive profits of the big banks and mining companies the greens will also provide more affordable social housing and restore support for struggling single parents what can you do for the reid area the greens will give $2 billion more to schools than the current gonski proposal more funding for job skills training in tafe and will reverse the university funding cuts labor s planned $2.3 billion in cuts supported by the coalition will hit our local uni students hard the more roads you build the more cars there are to fill them the greens oppose the plan for the westconnex which will only add to air pollution and traffic congestion instead we support an effective public transport system and increased number of cycleways both your academic qualifications and your employment history are incredibly diverse how does this broadness make you a good candidate my qualifications and experience as a councillor and as a campaigner have given me a portfolio of skills that i believe reflects the diversity of reid my science background has given me a broad understanding of issues such as climate change having worked in hospitals i understand the the need for continued public health funding and my years as a councillor mean i am well aware of local people s concerns for more info email for

recipes and techniques to make my time in the kitchen more pleasant and the outcome for the person eating the food more pleasurable what is it that you love most about food and cooking i love the creative process involved in the kitchen and making dishes that will hopefully transform the dining experience of the person presented with the meal if i can make someone feel comfort pleasure or

and properties making it the ideal oil for the good old aussie barbeque and finally best foods mayonnaise i am not ashamed to admit that i have a weakness for america s favorite mayonnaise i use it as a base for other sauces as its pantry stable and is a great flavor carrier for herbs and spices if you could invite anyone over for dinner at your place whom would you invite i would invite my family being a fairly recent immigrant to australia i miss my family in new zealand tonga and america if i could get everyone together at one and time and place it would be the greatest meal of my life 14 jared ingersoll on eating what was your best meal ever best meal ever i just had mine looking back over the details the lighting the food the music and so on i would say that while the varying parts were `kind of good the whole meal was `magic ­ and one that i will remember for as long as i have a memory what made this meal so remarkable tonight it was all about the company a 10-year-old kid and his sixyear-old brother who are both my sons and the centre of my world there was a hearty debate ­ should children under the age of 16 be allowed to eat junk food and in the true spirit of a debate the youngest chose sides kept times and selected a winner at the end i argued for the affirmative and lost aside from the debate the whole meal was full of slightly too loud conversation a drink got knocked over there was drawing on the paper table cloth and all in all a slightly noisy ruckus was had choice food eh bro kids who eat at the table are less likely to develop drug and alcohol dependencies the meal reminded me that we need more than just food and drink to sustain us we also need the conviviality of the table breaking bread and sharing a meal with the ones we love is such a crucial element eating food at a table without the television switched on or electronic devices distracting us is so important it is a moment in your life when you share yourself your day your ideas i recently gave a presentation with the well know nutritionist rosemary stanton and she told me that as a byproduct of her life of researching the foods we eat she has found that kids who eat regular meals at the table with the family develop greater language skills and social skills are more likely to achieve better results at school and are less likely to develop drug and alcohol dependencies later in life take from rosemary s research what you will for me i simply love the shared meals and the memories they give me eat well preferably around a table with your loved ones n jared ingersoll
