Perth Pinching Christmas?

The top photo shows a large truck driving around Fremantle trying to encourage people away from the delights of Fremantle to Basil's Perth.

This is a cheeky invasion into the heart of an important retail time for Fremantle's wonderful array of businesses.

The message on the truck "See the City Shine" may be a reference to the perception that Fremantle, despite the huge efforts of so many good retailers, suffers from grubby streets that dont shine and a lack of shining Christmas lighting - both the responsibility of Fremantle Council.

After yet more delays the new administration building will have an opening this Sunday. There will be a party for VIPs from 5pm.

Included in the invitation list for the VIP part of the party is former councillor Tim Grey Smith, who left town owing council $17,000,  has never paid it back, and worked for Labor's  Department of Premier and Cabinet before helping run the campaign of Labor's candidate for mayor Hannah Fitzhardinge. He also scored an invitation to the CEO's farewell  party the week the CEO, the mayor, and the chief financial officer ironically headed out of town after Pindan collapsed..
