Madden is determined to make an example of any local community that opposes the Vic Labor Govt push for more and more people on top (literally) of each other in inner suburbs.
Camberwell community had the temerity to oppose him through community action and their timid representatives - the council.
Camberwell Station was opposed; other developments were opposed... Madden had had enough.
Not comfortable with more thought the is required to kick a football, he acts.
Just do it and hand the consequences..
"My Mac-mansion is not in amberwell. So why worry ?" I imagine him saying.
