I can't understand how the residents can complain when they have chosen to live right next to the Perth Showgrounds!! This is a once a year event that surely they can put up with on one occasion? Last year the major act pulled out by the time the show did the last leg in Perth, will it be cancelled altogether next?!

NIMBY's. Almost literally. Agree with Helen.And her concerns. It's hard enough trying to make Perth a major drawcard as it is without further erosion through weak local government. At least Mr Day has added an hour at the front end!
