Queensland voters are going to turn on the government when they realise how much money this is going to cost them!

Initial figures are its going to cost them 5 billion and benefits to the state will be 8 billion (17 billion nationally).
If it only costs them 5 bill in today's figures then they're laughing.
Who cares anyway, there's only possible financial benefit for SA.

Didn’t Sydney cost $6bn all those years ago and these clowns think they can spend $5bn for something that won’t be started for 5 years or so?

Being in projects, I love these estimates. We both know that 5bill is a guestimate. It'll blow out and cost more plus extend over due delivery date. They'd be lucky to get away with 10bill.

As far as the benefits are concerned, I still don't understand how they measure them. Unless it improves between now and then I feel that they are a guestimate as well.

Whilst I agree it will blow out 84% of the infrastructure is there already and a lot of the rest such as roads and transport had been budgeted for no matter if they got the Olympics or not.
Anyway, I don't care, I loved the Sydney Olympics and hope I'll still be alive in 2032 to experience another games in Australia. :D

If the predictions about rising water levels due to global warming are right this Olympic Games may be totally devoted to water sports! ;)

Former Olympic swimmer Scott Miller will spend at least three years in jail for playing the central role in a NSW drug ring.
The 47-year-old butterfly star was sentenced in the Downing Centre District Court to a jail term of five years and six months, with a non-parole period of three years - to be served from the date of his arrest in February 2021.
Miller has been in custody since pleading guilty to supplying a large commercial quantity of methamphetamine, supplying a commercial quantity of heroin, participating in a criminal group and dealing with the proceeds of crime.
Judge Penelope Hock said Miller's limited criminal history was consistent with someone who had a drug addiction.
"He was raised in a loving and supportive family environment, however at the age of 15 he was selected the attend the AIS in Canberra and it was there his mental health problems commenced," she said.
Miller won silver at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, saying he was "devastated" at not winning gold.
Miller was arrested on February 16, 2021 after an extensive police investigation pinned him at the centre of a criminal group.
Police tracked his movements over several days, monitoring him with tracking devices in his car.
In January 2021, he met up with an unidentified individual who placed a bag of candles containing $2 million worth of methamphetamine in his car.
Miller then hid the bag in a concealed compartment in his car before driving with his co-accused Wayne Allan Johnson to Yass.
In Yass the pair met up with two other co-accused, Justin Szabolics and Lucas Peak at a motel.
There, the car was driven by Szabolics and Peak to Albury before the two dumped the candles and the car after a pursuit by police.
After finding the candles, police arrested and charged all four men.
Upon his arrest, police found heroin, cash and mobile phones in Miller's cupboard.
Miller will be eligible for parole in February 2024.
