    Labor offers $3m for NRL ground upgrade

    FEDERAL Labor has pledged $3 million to help upgrade Leichhardt Oval, the home ground of the Wests Tigers NRL club, in inner-west Sydney if it wins government.

    The money would go towards increased seating, ground resurfacing and drainage, improved public amenities and catering facilities, and the development of corporate and media facilities.

    Opposition infrastructure spokesman Anthony Albanese said the funding would also help mark the centenary of Australia's first rugby league game, played at nearby Birchgrove Oval in 1908.

    He said Leichhardt was not only the home ground of Wests Tigers NRL club, which incorporates the Balmain Tigers and Wests Magpies, but was used by about 100,000 people annually for other purposes.

    He said the upgrade would enable the team to play more home games at the ground and provide opportunities for other events.

    "Leichhardt Oval offers an affordable and accessible option for a wide range of users," Mr Albanese said today.

    "Labor's support is an appropriate way for us to commemorate Balmain's centenary and to recognise the important role that Balmain and Wests Tigers have played in providing a focus for the local community."

    The Tigers currently share home games between Leichhardt Oval, nearby Telstra Stadium at Homebush, and Campbelltown Sports Stadium in Sydney's southwest.

    The NSW Government and Leichhardt Council have already offered financial support for Leichhardt Oval's upgrade program.

    Close to Lowe which is marginal and the other seats closer to the city are pretty much Labor.

    I suppose having Tony Abbott as our local member won't help our cause!!! (or Australia's for that matter!!! :lol: )

    We need more labor supporters on the northern beaches to make us a marginal seat.

    Maybe a mosque at terrey Hills might help attract a few.

    Well if you suckers keep giving the mad monk a huge majority you only have yourselves to blame.

    Perhaps we could find another of his illigitimate non-children to halve his margin and give us hope for 2010.

    Leichhardt........... 4 NRL matchs a season and a $3,000,000 upgrade
    Brookie................12 NRL matchs a season, we should expext $12,000,000+.
    at least we go a new scoreboard a few seasons ago, lucky to get that.

    It gets worse.

    I noticed yesterday in the local paper in Epping - John Howard pledges $4 million of Federal money to the upgrade of Leichhardt. Cooincidently half the young league players in the Ryde District comp live in Bennelong!!!

    $7 million dollars when they play most of their games at Campbelltown and Telstra. It is a joke!!!

    Abbott ?
    Isn't Bronnie B our local in Wakehurst or whatever it is at Fed level ?

    Either way, we definitely need to get the dumbarse beaches selfish twats to think about their vote a bit more.

    Is anybody here a member or do they know anything about the Aussie Commies ? They'd be mad for the NRL. The game of the people.

    Bronnie is a member for something on the Beeaches (not Warringah of course) but nothing important. I heard her on the radio the other day and discovered she is the reason why people hate politicians and think they are total nobs. She interrupted, blustered and rudely interjected so that the other two guest were just totally overcome. I can't imagine her doing anything for anybody except driving them to drink!!!!

    Yeah, I had a look. Bronnie is Mackellar which is everything north of DY. So Brookvale Oval falls in Warringah (DY down to Mosman) which is held by Abbott.
    I just don't understand how so many can vote for those two scumbags, less people in Bennelong voted for Johnny.

    We have no chance of getting anything out of them.

    Anthony Albanese's seat is the safest labor seat in the country
