Basically, Kevin Greene has decided to scrap the planned Sting gig because it wasn’t his baby; the event having been organised by his predecessor Ian McDonald with the help of a $300,000 taxpayer contribution.
“There’s enough going on in Sydney on New Year’s Eve for everyone, so if Melbourne wants some reflected glory by holding a Sting concert, then they can have it,” Greene said.
“Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations are shown around the world. Melbourne’s NYE is seen by Melbourne.”
He then called Melbourne a ‘poo head’, added something about Sydney’s dad being better than Melbourne’s dad, then poked out his tongue and shouted ‘ya-boo sucks to you’.
