Melbourne's new Lord Mayor

I'm SO disappointed by what I've read Robert Doyle (newly elected Lord Mayor of Melb) has said lately. I'm really discouraged by his lack of compassion - apparently he wants to clear bogans and bad buskers out of the city. 

According to,  to busk is 'to play music or perform entertainment in a public place, usually while soliciting money'. Perhaps only people who DON'T need money should be allowed to busk?

People busk for a variety of reasons, for fun and enjoyment (and not neccesarily that of others), to gain exposure or experience for a career, and for money, probably among other reasons. I thought Melbourne was supposed to be a diverse city? If Robert Doyle wants to be so elitist, he can move to Sydney I think.

In other news, Little Big Planet on the ps3, is incredibly enjoyable. I'm really having fun playing it. I've also been playing a bit of Spore on the PC, and that's pretty fun too! Would enjoy that one more if it was more comfortable to sit at the computer.
