STUPID WA OVER REGULATION

Overseas tourists to Western Australia often mention that there are too many rules and regulations in our state, and that it is expensive over here.

Two large signs on the Fremantle Esplanade at the WA DAY event shows how stupid, irrelevant and inappropriate a lot of these rules are.

No drugs and alcohol. Well it is already illegal so why bother. No chairs, seats, whatever and the one that irritated me most was the rule about no professional photography.

The event was not fenced off so the Esplanade remained a public open space and hence every photographer, professional or amateur, with a pro SLR or just a mobile phone was allowed to take photos by law. I was hoping someone would try to stop me so I could have given them a blast, but no luck.

I assume that the Freo signs are just copies of what they put up at Elizabeth Quay but why bother!
