Bypassed for 16 years

WE had wondered how long it would take.

Labor’s member for Wallsend Sonia Hornery issued a press release yesterday demanding to know when the week-old O’Farrell government was going to build the next stage of the Newcastle inner-city bypass.

The ‘‘essential’’ and ‘‘much-needed’’ bypass was something she had ‘‘consistently advocated for’’, Ms Hornery opined.

It’s OK, Sonia, we’ve waited 16 long years for your mob to do it, so we’ll allow Barry a couple more days to get back to us. Pfft!
