Watch Out Victorians...

Yesterday the premier of Victoria decided to call Adelaide a backwater.

Good for him.

Now instead of complaining that people don't like your dredging plan and comparing your city with it's crappy drivers, weird turning left from the right lane, traffic lights into long closed restaurants
and that fact that there are Victorians there to our nice, comfortable, well planned, peaceful city of Adelaide.

I think that they are just still pissed off that we won the Air Warfare Destroyer contract. Instead they gave it to us, where all the defence people are and can still increase the ASC or whatever they are called these days shipyards.

And also because we managed to deepen the Port River in a shorter time frame. They announced their intentions in 2002 and haven't started yet. We started in 2005 and finished in 2006.

Watch out Victorians. We have a reputation and it is far scarier then your "gangland capital of the southern hemisphere" bit. Don't make us use it.

In other, unrelated news, the ABS recently said that South Australia has 15% of the nations killers, but only 8% of the nations population.

So it tells us two things. One, we are more likely to kill you in a random (or extremely well planned) act of murder. And two, we are more likely to catch you.
