Save What You Can

In the past I've has some less than complimentary things to say about Bob Parker.  Today though I have something nice to say.  Briefly:
David Carter suggested that councils look at following the government's unpopular policy of selling assets (and gosh, didn't that work out well for Labor in Queensland?).
Bob Parker said "No".  I like this bit the best:

"I don't think it's the Government's place to tell us what we should and shouldn't own as a community," [Bob Parker] said."If we need to resolve or solve some sort of pressing financial issue, that's something we will do, but we don't need the Government to tell us how to do it and when we should do it."
