the sydney cage?

Thats fucked up!
Yes, sadly it is true, and it's all because George W. is visiting for the APEC summit. There's a 3-mile exclusion zone around most of the CBD, and you basically can't enter the exclusion zone without accreditation from the police and once you're in, you have a Federal police escort.
There are SAS snipers on every second street corner and in SWAT teams in helicopters. It's pretty crazy, but things will be back to normal once the sumitt is over
You'd think it would just be simpler to put dubya in a bulletproof bubble or even just ask him to videoconference from the US than to create such an eyesore.
This is hardly a positive reflection on Bush.
Damn! This is gross!
Has taken me twice as long to get to work so far this week. 5-6 hours return yesterday and today.
Thank God I get Friday's off!
In 30 years we gone from this to that.
As an American I am embarrassed and humiliated that anyone warrants such "security." This is worse than Kim Jong-il. It's imperialist and paranoid. On behalf of myself and the 70% of my country who would like to be rid of this oaf, I apologize.
I've actually taken a few weeks off work because of this. My office is in the "declared" zone. There's no way I'm going anywhere near Sydney while this crap is on.
Thank god Perth is considered 'visit-worthy' by the APEC bigwigs. We just have to put up with the fact that George Jr is on our shores.
As a dual citizen of Australia and the USA, I apologise to my new country for the actions of a few powerful dickheads from my home country. The majority of Americans want him outa office and do not agree with the current admin's policies.
And if all goes to plan, both George and his weasly little friend Howard will be out of jobs soon.
Then we can get back to admiring and talking about large penis's!!!
Ooops...I meant Perth ISN'T considered 'visit-worthy'.
My fingers move too fast sometimes.
It is insane what that man brings with him to visit for three frickin days!!!
....he should just stay home and web cam it with the PM!!!
Wonder how much this all costs??????
I found out......
It costs America
1 man, US President, George W Bush
will visit Sydney, Australia, for 5 days.
He will travel in Air Force One
which will be one of 3 / 747 Jumbo jets his entourage will fly in.
A further 5 transport aircraft will accompany the Jumbos,
carrying 2 helicopters (including Marine One, his official chopper),
More than 20 motor vehicles including
2 Presidential limousines,
and 18 secret service and other vehicles,
which will convey 50 White House staff and advisers.
A 250 strong security detail is also on the way.
All up there will be 525 people in the Presidential entourage,
and it will cost over $200,000,000
Seriously, can't they just tele conference this???
W. is the biggest the embarrassment to the country in my lifetime.
He is so annoying, he would drive a saint into being a mad bomber.
We give no fark for Dubya. He and his SS can go back where they came from.
And don't go upsetting too many Sydneysiders. They're like New Yorkers except they play rugby.
I've been reading the replies to that blog post. Talk about ruffled feathers.
I did like this.
Good job, WH -- and don't forgot what it's costing Sydney in terms of lost revenues to the businesses impacted.
This is OUTRAGEOUS.
I think that Americans should send all their "spare" cams to the white house and bury the oval office with them!!!!!
Good to see The Chaser didn't let us down.
Chaser duo detained over APEC stunt - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
They made it all the way to within throwing distance of Dubya's motorcade. God bless 'em.
More piss taking.

Was just about to post the same thing Chuck Hena .
The police/security certainly weren't happy little campers after that stunt was pulled . Then Downer comes out & says it was a success that 11 arrests were made . What a joke he is !
Is a bit scary to think a couple of comedians could get that close actually .
The ironic thing is they did it all with Federal Government money as they are a part of the ABC!
Lets see Lil Johnnie try and explain that to his mate George!
