Anti-terror wargames or how to make the public crap themselves

Last week, some bright spark had the idea of blowing up a section of a disused TAFE in Collingwood in the name of "being prepared, but not alarmed". Except that they forgot to tell the public who were alarmed. Clearly this would not happen in a marginally Liberal held seat. Someone fucked up good.

    What I love the most is that the explosion dislodged a chunck of aspestos that now poses a low level risk to the community. HA. I feel so much safer!

    BSF. You would come over better, if you stated that someone messed up or even stuffed up, sounds nicer.
    Anyhow it could have been possible that a certain prospective politician was known to be in the collingwood area looking for suitable electorate office space, but left before the big bang, just surmising!

    P ASH. I am very concerned, that you are in the science industry, and are unable to spell ASBESTOS correctly. It is disturbing to know that you found an element of humour in this potentially dangerous explosion, possibly putting the general public at risk.
    Myself being a serial survivor of this particular activity never found anything humorous about it.
    I will give you a credit for your statement 'What I love most' and I am happy you feel much safer.

    Neighbourhood Watch was given the job of warning people of the operation. However, what the bright PR firm didn't realise is that Collingwood is not some leafy eastern suburb and the leaflet drop simply didn't make it into most areas.

    Eddie doesn't really have a reason to go anywhere near Collingwood now that the team trains at the Lexus Centre in East Melbourne and he lives in Toorak. Hell, I don't think he would even move to his electorate if he was to go into politics.
