Nathan Rees racks up a hemi-anniversary

Frankly, I’m surprised he’s held on to the Premier slot for this long. Six months of big fat nothings.

Heard a satirical song on ABC702 this arvo – can’t find it online, hopefully Auntie will release it for download. It included this gem of his, which I had forgotten:

“Congestion is a concern for all Sydneysiders,” he said.

“If you think you are in traffic, you are in traffic. It’s not a relative concept. It’s no good for me saying, ‘Oh, it’s much worse in New York or Paris’.

“It’s like being in love. If you think you are in love, you are in love. If you think you are in traffic, you are in traffic.

  1. At the risk of being called out—as so often I am—for stooging, that was a perfectly coherent statement of Rees to make. Individual drivers’ perceptions of traffic are different to measurable, comparable, levels of city congestion.
    Mind you, I always considered Donald Rumsfeld’s statement about known unknowns and unknown unknowns to be a valid statement of an important distinction. He was a criminal and a buffoon, but he wasn’t a bad epistemologist.
