Cassandra Wilkinson will be voting Liberal in the Sydney mayoral election.
The Left criticises those who would lock the door against refugees but appears happy to drive the needy out of their own neighbourhoods with development controls that preserve the three-bedroom terraces of the inner-city elites against the two-bedroom flats of the first-home buyer.
Progress to me is the building of homes, the creation of jobs, the raising of living standards and creation of opportunity for all citizens, not only those lucky enough to live in this country’s most privileged postcodes in Sydney City.
I suspect she might be disappointed.
Many politicians suffer from the problem that Cass identifies:
… policies that are as vague as they are naive and that offer no practical measures to increase supply, ease congestion or support jobs growth. … appears not to grasp the relationship between supply and price, and continues to talk about affordability in the same breath as proposing controls on density and design that can only drive up prices.
