Maybe we need a 'go fund me' page to raise the $s to move the navy and build a cruise terminal - I'm good for a hundred
I see the big ole smiley face at the end of your post ... however please consider this from my perspective .......
I do agree that cruisers need better arrangements to operate from Sydney but please try to balance the need of people to go on their holiday over those of us who may need to use GI to put their life on the line as a part of their job on a daily basis.
GI supports our war fighting naval personnel (who also transport equipment and supplies to our Army and RAAF personnel).
It seems there are those who think our military personnel are less entitled to continue to operate from their traditional 'home' and the problem can be simply fixed by moving our Defence operations to somewhere else.
Why should we taxpayers pay for the convenience of 'the entitled' cruisers who are put out by the lack of infrastructure available in Sydney.
Face it Sydney Harbour is FULL no more room here.
How about we pull down the Harbour Bridge and build a new one that is higher to enable the mega crooze ships to pass under .......
I have just put on my flame proof suit ......................
If you want me I shall be in my stateroom, or the bar, or the pool, or the pool with the bar, or the stateroom with bar and pool in it but definitely somewhere on board a ship!
