This is the personal blog of Ian Ker, who was Councillor for the South Ward of the Town of Vincent from 1995 to 2009. I have been a resident of this area since 1985. This blog was originally conceived as a way of letting residents of Vincent know what I have been doing and sharing thoughts on important issues. I can now use it to sound off about things that concern me.

If you want to contact me, my e-mail is still or post a comment on this blog.

The Prize For Prescience

In the first post here on the local government so-called reform shenanigans, the graphic included a letter from Nick Boorman of Greenmount (right).

Yesterday we saw reports that South Perth Council has, indeed, voted for the name 'South Park' should the forced amalgamation with Victoria Park (excluding Burswood) eventuate.

Definitely better than the trite and uninspiring 'South Bank City' suggested by Victoria Park Council - which sounds like the proverbial horse designed by a committee.

Now we see that life truly imitates art. And the prize for Prescience goes to Nick Boorman.
