  • MISSY THE CAT RETURNS! Beautiful heritage buildings marred by ugly Soviet-inspired extensions and occupants. Presently being run as a squat at the expense of the owners, who are waiting hopefully in anticipation of an asteroid strike or some other form of divine justice. Will require a lengthy industrial-strength cleanout before decent people can be expected to visit again. =============== Star ratings 2022: 5 - a place of rare genius that deserves regular return visits 4 - a solid, worthy effort with no major misdemeanours 3 - a solid, worthy effort with one important thing to fix 2 - more than one important thing to fix, yearning to be either a 3 or a 1 1 - a place that deserves to go under, and probably soon will
  • Of course it depends if you're inside or outside Parliament, but outside with a thousand freedom-loving Australians fighting for our futures, it was bloody awesome SACK DAN ANDREWS 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺
