– Out of step: letter to the Wentworth
The following letter by 2011RA member Patrick McGrath was published on p43 of the Wentworth Courier on April 25th 2012
How many Kings Cross shopfronts need footpath-to-ceiling, solid – and presumably bullet-proof – steel security shutters? Just the one it seems – the new tattoo parlour on Darlinghurst Rd which was recently approved by Clover Moore’s Council despite vigorous opposition from Kings Cross Police and surrounding residents. Thanks are due to Clover and Suzie Matthews (Manager, Late Night Economy) for again ‘revitalising’ our ‘village’ in their ever distinctive style, but considering the announcements by the Premier and Police Commissioner this week it appears that, as usual, Moore and Matthews are completely out of step with community expectations.
