What do you expect from the likes of Mercanti, Foxcroft and the rest of them? They're always quick to denigrate the people who don't embrace their greedy, grasping, inwardly focused approach to life, especially when they don't get their own way. They're all about regular people "pulling themselves up by their bootstraps" but don't subscribe to that theory when they need our public money to be funneled into their private profit.

After yesterday's whining diatribe it's pretty clear to me that if it wasn't for family money, P.J Mercanti (how many adults have a name like P.J.?) would be bussing the same tables that he now manages for Daddy. Ron Foxcroft has been ranting about how the "city takes twelve years to do what the private sector does in 12 minutes". Well Ron, if the private sector is so great, how come it's coming to taxpayers for a handout?

All this time I thought Mark Chamberlain was a multi-millionaire but, based on what Mercanti has said, after Chamberlain showed up at City Hall and gave such an eloquent speech in favour of the West Harbour, I can only assume he’s just another bum without a job.

In truth, the difference between the Mercanti’s of this world and the Chamberlains is that one of them hopes to get rich only by taking out and the other by putting in. We need more of the latter.
