Not surprisingly, the council turned down the application with Louise Miller-Frost (you must have a hyphenated surname to work at the council!) telling the Eastern Courier Messenger that the Local Government Act stipulated that roadways and footpaths were not to be used for a business without a permit.
Well give them a bloody permit you stuck up bunch of snobs!
In turning down the application, the council, no doubt was thinking of the health of their Burnside Village patrons. What patron sitting there sipping on their latte would want to see a person on the footpath trying to earn a living. Oh, the thought of it. They would probably need therapy after seeing that sort of thing in the Burnside Council area.
A vendor of The Big Issue will typically purchase a magazine for $3 and sell it for $6 and they will pocket the difference. Great to see someone getting off their bums and willing to try something to earn a living. It's just a pity the Burnside Council doesn't see it that way. Good Lord, we wouldn't want to see someone of that 'ilk' in the Burnside area.
I heard a rumour that the council were going to increase rates of homeowners who have friends that visit and the friend doesn't drive at least a Mercedes or Jaguar (over 2005 model). Of course, I just made that bit up, as I like having a go at councils that are stuck up and full of snobs. It reminds me of the time an Unley Council resident was told ""If you can't pay your rates in one hit, you can't afford to live in Unley". Maybe the two councils are good friends?
