Perth – ‘Times are A-Changing’

Wake up our city Perth, from its stupor

No, it’s not Perth 1960, it’s Perth 2019 at 10:30am, Tuesday 24th September, looking right through the guts of our golden mile.

Streets are quiet, foot traffic is non existent and it reminds me of a Bob Dylan chorus from ‘Times Are A-Changin’

‘Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

The battle outside ragin’

Will soon shake your windows

And rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changin’

It’s time for entrepreneurs, small business, big business, artists, NGOs, developers, social engineers, business disrupters create the vision to transform Perth to its rightful place to become a Global City.

It’s time to take back the reigns of leadership rather than yield to outdated regulations and systems.

We are no longer able to rely on mining alone to take us where we need to go.

Perth ought to be the nation’s gateway to the new economies of Asia, especially India.
