In defending the controversial plan to dredge Port Phillip bay, Vic Premier John Brumby called Adelaide a 'back water'. You have to love it when pollie's forget to be PC and state their deep felt prejudice.
Being from Melbourne and having been to Adelaide (twice), I think it is a lovely city. Pity about the football teams and homicidal maniacs though. Oh yes and sorry for stealing most of the water.
VICTORIAN Premier John Brumby has branded Adelaide a "backwater" - but Premier Mike Rann says his counterpart's outrageous cross-border attack stems from insecurity.
Mr Brumby said unless Victoria pushed ahead with a controversial plan to deepen the channel in Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne would end up as a "backwater" like Adelaide.
