You left out the sterling quote from the managing director (?) of McDonalds Australia.
After 3 months of protests by local people, countless objections not only to the demolition of this house but that fact that it would be replaced with a McDonalds and one man actually attaching himself to the rafters of the house (with a u-bolt around his neck. If he had slipped...), the MD said "McDonalds will not be dictated to by a vocal minority".
How about "The public will not be dictated to by a fast food chain?" Lets face it, McDonalds are after global domination.
Also, since the house was not listed as a heritage building, or a National Trust building, McDonalds claimed when they bought the land that the house was "historically unimportant".
Uh huh, except all the locals consider it to be very historically important and obviously worth saving. Ooops, listening to that vocal minority again.
