The reason why the above is local politics, is that the State Labor government, unilaterally rezoned the area where I live, against the wishes of the residents, and the local government.

So this place is changing from a nice suburb where families can live in homes with gardens, to a high-rise hell-hole, because developers.

In theory, I have "gained" because I can now leave the formerly nice place to live, and make a profit on my home.

It doesn't feel like a gain to me.
