Want to live in Andrews’ Victoria or Baghdad?

Want to live in Andrews’ Victoria or Baghdad?

It beggars belief the seemingly intelligent Australians are prepared to exist under the Labor dolt Daniel Andrews without storming his office and handing him over to the the Apex gangs for their particular amusement. You couldn’t make this story of incompetence up if you tried. Oh, yeah, Victoria or Baghdad? Save your dough and stay in Victoria. They’re probably quite similar these days!

Residents in Melbourne’s north have been left irritated, tired and frustrated after a home security alarm rang non-stop for a week, despite regular calls to authorities. The alarm at the residential property in Eltham started ringing at 5:00am last Wednesday and was only deactivated seven days later. Neighbour Rod resorted to wearing earmuffs and earplugs just to escape the noise.

Home security alarm rings non-stop for seven days, leaves Eltham residents ‘jittery’

“I sleep with the ear plugs on and I’m putting the fan on at night time so I can try and block the sound, which is much louder at night time,” he said.
“I’m stressed, I’m tired, I’d like to get some sleep. I’m annoyed and I’m also very confused as to why it’s been allowed to ring out for over a week.”
Angie, another local resident, was equally frustrated.
“We’re all getting very jittery because we can’t go outside without listening to this,” she said.

Charles lives 1.5 kilometres away and could still hear the alarm loud and clear.
“It started seven days ago and it’s been going continuously day and night since then. Last night my wife was in tears,” he said just hours before it was turned off.
“The alarm system is on the wall and high up. I’m really quite amazed at how loud it is, as it carries up the valley.”
Adding to their frustration, neighbours claimed their repeated calls to police, the local council, the Environment Protection Authority and the security firm monitoring the alarm fell on deaf ears.
The ABC understands the owner of the house is currently overseas.
The EPA is responsible for the legislation governing residential noise but the local council and police are the responding authorities.
A spokesperson for Nillumbik Shire Council said it was willing to pay for an electrician to cut the alarm but only if the owner or police granted permission to enter the property.
A Victoria Police spokesperson said Eltham police were made aware of the home security alarm and they have made several enquiries to abate the noise.
Seven days later the locals finally got some relief, after the insurance agency sent a contractor to deactivate the alarm.
The EPA is currently conducting a review of residential noise regulations.

    It is hard to understand why insanity only exists in the Labor States.

      Not really Muph when you think about it

      if Shorten wins the next election, this is coming to all States

        Alarm bells are ringing, L; but most of the punters in Melb’s north are deaf as well as dumb.

    • Neville 12/04/2018, 1:31 am

      No Muph, disagree; it’s NOT hard to understand why insanity only exists in the Labor States!!

    In the State of Stupidity, there are rules against basic commonsense and propriety. There are rules against complaints about crime, there are rules against Government for the People, in fact there are rules against having rules in the first place. Victoriastan is undeniably unique but the complaining souls who live there shaped their own destiny. Idiots!

      Queensland Labor are doing their level best to gain similar status to Victoriastan. Todays news about a gang robbing a shop in Brisbane, all of ‘African appearance’. What is surprising is the fact the MSM clarified the robbers as of African appearance. Another city ‘enjoying’ the those of African appearance crime is Toowoomba, and has done so for well over a decade.

        Yeah PP we had an idea of retiring in Toowoomba and went there not long ago for the day. The joint is filled with non reflective skinned people from another country and even that nice Japanese garden there was full of them cavorting. You try not to be seen as racist but why does a race of people come a long way to a country that they probably had never heard of a few years ago, exist on welfare, and menace people in local parks and gardens.

    Just jump the fence and cut the wires. Are the neighbours that useless?
    It wouldn’t have taken more than an hour for the task to be completed within earshot of my place. 55 minutes of that hour would have been occupied with finding my ladder.
    Useless pricks. Let’s just complain to the authorities instead of getting off our backside. The green idiots living in those hills need a bushfire to sort out the problem.

    • Pensioner Pete 11/04/2018, 7:51 am

      Ian: Gotta agree with you. How hard is it to take some pro-active action and silence the alarm. In my situation, it would take only one shot from the 303, problem solved. Scenario goes like this…. rifle shot? what rifle shot, it was the alarm exploding for some ‘unknown’ reason, likely overheated.

      • Willy 11/04/2018, 8:47 am

        Get a grip PP, a 303 would be hard to come by these days in green downtown Eltham. Why not call the copper every ten minutes until they finally get off their backsides and do something sensible other than commit thuggery.

      • Joe Blogs 11/04/2018, 10:43 am

        The 303 panacea, PP!

    • TL46 11/04/2018, 8:00 am

      No need to go to all that trouble, Ian. Just open the meter box and turn off the main switch.
      I also ask myself, why has happened that people are no longer able help themselves? Has the brainwashing been that effective.

      • Albert 11/04/2018, 8:51 am

        TL46, probably because the coppers would charge them with unlawful entry and vandalism should they enter the property and shut the alarm down.

      • Joe Blogs 11/04/2018, 10:45 am

        Backup battery too.

    • Austin Ayforti 11/04/2018, 12:33 pm

      A ladder and a lump hammer. Two whacks and the problem is solved. Since it is Victoriastan the standard state issue balaclava could be worn if anonymity is prefered.

  • Penguinite 11/04/2018, 8:12 am

    The authorities refuse to take action to terminate the alarm because it would probably make them responsible for the security of the building pending the owners return.

  • TommyGun 11/04/2018, 8:16 am

    FFS. People are now completely hog-tied by “Rules” imposed by politically correct, safety obsessed wankers.

  • Eliza 11/04/2018, 10:15 am

    Sad how we have all become so isolated from our neighbours . Once upon a time the offending neighbour would probably have given his/her key to one of them and asked them to keep an eye on the place and hey presto the problem would have been solved within minutes .

  • Clarion Call 11/04/2018, 2:07 pm

    Yep, once upon a time was once upon a time. Neighbours today would take your door key, steal all your stuff, smash all the plaster walls and then complain to the local council about all the trash in your front yard. Neighbours in my complex might be seen about twice a year, fleetingly. Conversations? Hardly.

    • Joe Blogs 11/04/2018, 6:47 pm

      Neighbours?!

      Nah. Just can’t to it to youse.
