Tonight: Beachside residents call for federal assistance in order to maintain their properties that are eroding into the sea.
So, basically the deal is, I live in the inner west of Sydney, and can't afford a beachside property, and now these people want to use federal funds to save theirs from falling into the sea? Have they heard of insurance? Did they ever think that when they bought the property that something like this could happen? Of course they did. But they still want bailing out.
No way am I going to pay tax only to have it go to prop up someones multi million dollar beachside place. Sure, I'd love to surf every day and live near the beach. But I don't expect someone else to pay for it.
Your property is falling into the ocean? Learn to swim.
