    In a previous life in local governmentland the district I worked in had an issue with bogans and car bodies on their front lawns, i.e. people were too lazy to get rid of them so I devised a one-off scheme where the Council (in reality Simsmetal) would come and take the car bodies away if they wanted for free, as long as they were accessible to trucks and they could prove they were a ratepayer, if people still kept them after a certain date they'd start getting fined. Sims were only expecting to collect a couple of dozen car bodies but from memory the tally ended up being a couple of hundred which made it worth Sims' while as they got the scrap value and the Council got rid of all these car bodies around the place, and ratepayers felt like they were getting some value for money for their rates.

    The "carrot before the stick" approach works wonders sometimes, Local Government Victoria should give it a try.

    So you are about to start your own business. Congrats.

    Now a quick bet.

    3 years after you start you will:

    a) no longer be a rabid ALP supporter.
    b) have closed it and are doing something else.

    Lets look this up this up on 24/4/2018.

    Whats the odds you are placing on me?

    Lets chuck in another option

    c) Still running business, still rabid ALP supporter

    a) 100:1
    b) 5:1
    c) 300:1

    I'll take c) for $100

    We'll do fixed odds so they don't fluctuate.
