Gove gone grazy

This just in from a bemused Cairns resident, who travels to the Territory for work every other week.

There are those that would suggest that there is a slack attitude to doing things in Gove, on the Northern Territory's East Coast. Last week, after 20 years of a car park with no marked parking bays, someone decided that they needed to be line-marked.

Did they let the fact that there were cars parked at random all over the place stand in their way? No they didn't.
Did they inconvenience the owners of those cars by asking them to move them? No they didn't.
Did they paint around the cars, in a completely half arsed job? You bet. The same technique was employed on an entire adjoining suburb of public streets!
God bless Australia.
