However, having lived in W.A. for over 30 years, and having witnessed the loss of Rally, Redbull Air Race, Claremont Speedway, RAC/AHG, Atlantis, ASBK (twice, so there is some hope), Supercars, Street races on bikes and Cars in country towns (feel free to add more of your own) I consider my viewpoint not defeatist, but bone chillingly on point.
Perth is a comical (or should that be criminal?) waste of land and time. It remains what it always has been as one of the most expensive retirement villages on the planet, where people simply look forward to dying because it'll give them something to fucking do.
