That’s the third time she’s used it this month.

The other key factor in the Horizon saga is that it sat on Commonwealth-owned land - a former ABC sound studio and offices. So Council had no say in the approval process. It did take about five years from first mooting until construction start in 1996. Plus somewhere along the way it had ten floors shaved off.

Not the first Seidler tower to cop a haircut.

Clover was not on council then she was the State Member. Nothing in the media about her opposing it as opposed to the Monorail.

I guess she was looking at it as badly needed social housing.

What jurisdiction does Clover have over what happens with Ritz-Carlton? Is it even within the City of Sydney council area?

It is, but I believe this is another of those ‘too big for Clowncil to cope with’ processes that lies wholly within the state government’s remit.

Hence the white noise from Clover and co.

Anyway, councils only exist at the whim of the State Parliament.

Can't be white noise because it is not helping me sleep any better.

It's more of an irritating whine.

And embarrassingly predictable.

Casino giant Star Entertainment Group will begin slashing up to 400 jobs within days, as weak demand from wealthy offshore VIP gamblers bites the company's bottom line.

Star blamed the continued decline in revenue from super-rich VIPs for driving the slowdown, alongside weaker domestic growth.

To stem the bleeding, the company would axe up to 20 per cent of the backroom staff, saving up to $50 million per year by bringing forward the planned cost savings.

The job cuts will "take out duplication" and affect "virtually every function" including staff in IT, hospitality, HR and finance.

The company said its capital works remain on track, with major developments underway at Queen's Wharf in Brisbane and The Star in the Gold Coast.

Do you think this will affect this development ? Taken alongside the fact that James Packer no longer holds a controlling interest in Crown and the new guy has mentioned relaxing the VIP gamblers only rule, citing China’s clampdown
